English Webinar on IELTS Speaking

The Transcript of this English Webinar

  • The IELTS Speaking section is the same in both Academic and General modules of the IELTS exam.
  • The format of the IELTS Speaking test:
  • If you have a nickname in English, you can invite the examiner to call you with your nickname.
  • Do not give any advice or recommendation to the examiner.
  • You should not copy some model answers in your interview.
  • Remember that you should not ask the examiner any personal question. As a matter of fact, you’re supposed to answer the questions and not pose any.
  • Can you use contractions in IELTS Speaking part?
    • Yes, you can use contractions in the interview because it shows that you are fluent. For instance, you can use “wanna” (for want to) and “gonna” (for going to).
  • IELTS Speaking Parts:
    • Part 0: Greeting the examiner
      • It’s called Part 0 because this is the first thing that you do as soon as you enter the examination room.
      • You need to create a good impression on the examiner.
      • Try to show self-confidence in interaction with the examiner.
      • Strike a pose while sitting that shows that you are confident and ready for the exam.
      • Try to have eye contact with the IELTS examiner.
      • Do not address the examiner with a title (e.g., Dr., Mr., Mrs., Ms., etc.) plus their first name, which is a common mistake in English. For example, do not address him as Mr. Jack.
