IELTS Speaking Strategies that work!
  •    Do not give short answers during Part 1 of the Speaking Interview. Your answers should be two - three sentences long.
  •   Include the reason WHY you do (or do not do a thing) when you answer Part 1 Questions.
  •   Do not memorise long answers. The examiners are trained to identify memorised answers.
  •   Use advanced grammar structures, such as “conditionals”, “comparative and superlative”, “modals”, “passive”, “wh-clauses”, and so on, when you answer IELTS questions.
  •   Cover all the bullet points on the Cue Card (Part 2)
  •   Use some academic words (i.e. words that are not widely used in everyday life) when you answer IELTS questions.
  •   Improve your conversational proficiency by using idioms properly in your speaking.
  •   Show the examiner that you know how to use emphatic and/or contrastive stress .
  •   If you do not remember a particular word, paraphrase it!
