ok so in this video I'm going to give
you lots of tips for doing the IELTS
speaking test really well and here's my
first tip: you need to use things called
fillers. Now here are some examples of
Now fillers don't really
say anything in particular; they don't
give content they don't give information
but they get you extra time, they
buy you time; they give you a second to
think about what to say and native
speakers in English use these all the
time; you probably use fillers in your
own language all the time sometimes
without even noticing it and we use them
to give ourselves some extra thinking time
which is really important in the IELTS
speaking test but you need to try to use
them naturally; you don't want to sound
like a robot, you want to sound like a
natural speaker; you also need to use
things called linking words; this is
really important as well; these are words
that help join different ideas for example:
So try to use linking words as well as fillers
when you talk. It will really impress the examiner;
will help you get a better band score for speaking.
You should also paraphrase the examiner; you
should try to paraphrase the questions
asked in parts two and three.
What that means is rephrase the question
asked by the examiner to show
first of all that you understand it and
secondly to show your range of
vocabulary so you can you change the
examiner's words to your own words so
for example maybe the examiner asks you:
"do you have any brothers and sisters?" and
you can say
"yes I've got three siblings" - now siblings
is a synonym of "brothers and sisters" so
you're paraphrasing what the examiner
asked you. Here is another useful tip:
she's confused, she doesn't understand
the question. If you do not understand
the question, ask the examiner to
explain the question to you. And some
students don't do that because they
think that if they ask the examiner to
explain the question
it makes them look bad but actually it's
a good thing to do because it gives you
the opportunity to use language to
ask for clarification, so you can use
language like this:
so it helps you use different
language, or you could say something like
"do you mean...?"
so if you ask the clarification that's a
good thing.
so "what what do you mean by?" If you're
not sure of a word "what do you mean by...?" and the
examiner will tell you but the examiner
will also think "this candidate can
ask for clarification". In part one
remember to extend your answers; do not
just answer yes or no; come up with a
longer answer so for example maybe the
examiner says "are you studying at
University at the moment?"
Do not just say "yes" ok? You should
something like "yes i'm studying
economics at Beijing University. I've
been there for just over a year". So
you're extending your answer. In part two
for the long turn, remember to make
notes before the Part 2 long turn. Use
that minute to write down a list of
notes or a mindmap; you have one minute;
remember to plan; a lot of candidates
don't do this
and during the 2-minute talk their minds
their brains stop; they forget what to
say; so make sure you plan your talk for
two minutes. So you should also in Part 2,
aim to talk for two minutes;
some candidates think that one minute is
enough; it isn't - you should try to talk
for two minutes.
In Part 3 it's very important to listen carefully
to the question you've got to think
about what kind of question is the
examiner using, what kind of question is
the examiner asking, because the question
might be asking you to predict something,
to speculate about the future, to
hypothesize; so listen carefully to the
language used by the examiner so you
know exactly what you're being asked.
So here the examiner says "how might
education change in the future?"
The examiner has used the word "might" and
"in the future" so you know you're going
to try and speculate so you need to
maybe use the word "might" again so "I
think children might
use more mobile devices in the future."
And that tells the examiner that you
understood the question properly.
So to summarize those ideas remember:
...and one final tip very important
to do but also quite difficult because
you're quite nervous is remember to
smile at the examiner. So there
are your exam tips for the IELTS speaking
