HOW TO IMPROVE IELTS SPEAKING

Speaking tests can be quite frightening if you find yourself at a loss for words. However, it’s crucial to keep in mind that these tests aren’t meant to cause you any difficulties. Have there ever been instances in the speaking portion of the exam where you were unsure of how to start your next phrase because you didn’t fully understand the question the IELTS examiner was asking? Then, what do you do?

What can we do to keep ourselves out of this embarrassing predicament? You will also want to do well for the examiner! It’s also critical to remember that forgetting a word or phrase doesn’t indicate a lack of proficiency in Spanish! In our first language, we frequently make mistakes in hearing, memory, and interpretation without it affecting our self-assurance in our proficiency. This also applies to other languages.  See whether the word or phrase comes to you after a brief interval. If not, it’s okay to talk around it; in fact, doing so can highlight your fluency!

And instead of saying ‘I think’, use the following phrases instead:

If I’m not sure I understand the question, what should I do?

Try using the following statements and phrases in this situation:

– If I understand right, …    

– I’m sorry, I’m not sure I understand. Do you mean (that)…?   

– Sorry I don’t quite catch you. When you say …, do you mean …?    

– I’m not exactly sure how to answer that question, but (perhaps)…    

– That’s a rather difficult question, but (maybe)…    

– Could you please rephrase that question / topic?

If I’m having trouble during a conversation, what should I say?

It’s common to become stuck throughout the conversion process. To demonstrate that you are actively thinking instead of just being silent, consider using the following words and phrases:

– Well, …

– Actually, …

– In fact, …

– You see, …

– How shall I put it, …

– Let me think for a second, …

– Give me a few seconds, …

And instead of saying ‘I think’, use the following phrases instead:

– As far as I’m concerned, …

– It seems to me that…

– From where I stand, it is …

– What I reckon is …

– I’d like to point out that…

– If I may say so, this is…

– I’m convinced that…

– Personally, I consider….

How should I respond if I can’t remember how to pronounce a word?

i. Use Vague Words

All of us desire to impress the examiner by using a sophisticated vocabulary, but occasionally we simply forget how to pronounce a word! Try to replace it in this instance with a more ambiguous term.

ii. Use Synonyms

Another way to do it is to use synonyms. Use your imagination and use the words that can convey a similar meaning.

For example, if you can’t say:

‘This woman is talkative.’

Then use a synonym:

‘This woman is never quiet.’

iii. Expand the Words

It is possible to “expand” or “explain” many complex words using shorter phrases. Try to make

it simple if you are uncomfortable utilizing some of the terms; by being fluid and using proper language, you may receive a higher grade.

For example, if the following is a bit difficult:

‘I’ve never seen such a stubborn person.’

Then we can say like this:

‘I’ve never seen such a person who never listens to other’s advice.’

How should I start my speech, and how should I end it?

In addition to being at ease when speaking, we ought to concentrate on having a strong beginning and conclusion. There’s nothing worse than mumbling, “Yeah, that’s that,” and having nothing to add.

We can attempt something like this to get your speaking test finished:

– Let me put it another way, …

– What I’m suggesting is …

– All I’m trying to say is …

– What I’m getting at is …
