IELTS Speaking is a face-to-face, informal discussion with an IELTS examiner

It is the same for both Academic and General Training.

The test is divided into 3 parts and is designed to test your pronunciation, fluency, grammar and vocabulary.

Top 5 IELTS Speaking Tip

Speak some English every day.

Ask the examiner questions if you don’t understand.

Do a 24-hour English warm up.

Focus on the 4 marking criteria. Everything else is irrelevant.

Practising for the sake of it will not help. You need to identify your weaknesses and take action on improving those shortcomings.

Be a reflective learner. Record your practice sessions and honestly appraise your performance.
