- Reading Abilities of the candidate.
Here in this article we will be talking about the ‘Speaking Section” in IELTS Paper.
The Speaking test is a face-to-face conversation with a certified examiner. It is as close to a real-life situation as a test can get.
The examiner will ask you about familiar topics such as home, work or studies in part 1.
This should help you feel comfortable when speaking. Try and relax so that you can speak as naturally as possible.
Below listed are few tips to nail the speaking and score a great deal..
Talk as fluently as possible and be spontaneous
It is important that whatever has been asked to you, the content you deliver should be fluent and as spontaneous as possible as this will consist 25% of your score. Be confident and speak as much as you can!
Be confident and enjoy using your English
Doesn’t matter what you say but just make sure to be confident of it. Relax and develop your answers and make them rich interesting and not very conversational but informative.
The examiners will test your overall content delivery and confidence and the command and hold over your language will matter the most.
Speak more than the examiner. Make as much as you can while speaking because that is exactly what you are being tested for!
Do not learn prepared answer
The examiner knows when you have learned a certain answer and is trained to spot the same. Hence it is advisable for you not to use prepared answers and rather be spontaneous.
Express your Opinion
Have a voice and talk.. You will be assessed on the basis of how you communicate and how you have a voice over certain matters and things.This is your opportunity to utilise the best you have and give it your best.
The questions of the examiners are somewhat predictable. So practise online and record yourself speaking. Speak more at gatherings and be familiar with what goes into speaking in front of people.
