IELTS Speaking: Responding quickly and automatically to the examiner in this tutorial, I'm going
to share with you a technique that will help you respond quickly and automatically and
very smoothly and it's a technique that you can use at home without a tutor or without
a speaking partner this tutorial is divided up into three parts first we look at the foundation
for quick and automatic responses for the IELTS examiner then I'll tell you a quick
story about a student who used the technique and managed to boost his score and then finally,
I'll going into the basics, the step-by-step system or guide for you to use the Echo 10
Technique the foundation for being able to speak quickly and automatically is not really
based on your ability with the language now let me explain if I'm talking about a topic
that I'm not so certain about or that I rarely talk about, then it's going to be very difficult
for me to give quick and automatic and smooth answers whereas, if I'm talking about a topic
that I've had thousands of conversations about, that I've explained inside out, back to front,
left to right I've explained a million times and that I've explained or I've talked about
very recently, then I'm going to be able to explain it much better than if it was a topic
that I didn't know about and this is regardless of my language ability because I'm talking
about topics, explaining topics in my own language, in English it's almost exaggerated
when we're speaking a second language and I know this because I can speak Spanish and
I know that if I'm describing or explaining something in Spanish then it takes me a lot
longer even if I'm quite competent in the subject, it still takes me longer than if
it's with my native tongue, English so let me give you an example if I were to explain
to you about the spiciness of certain Indian curries, then I couldn't speak that long without
going into ums and ahs and stuff like that whereas, if I was to talk about academic writing
or IELTS, then I could speak for quite a long time, in quite a coherent manner, and with
very full answers because it's a topic that I'm pretty much speaking about every single
day and it's a topic that I know well now, the problem comes when we get to IELTS you
see with IELTS, we have to talk about topics that we're not so well versed in for example,
when was the last time you talked about crime, or when you talked about the environment?
you've probably had a conversation about crime in English before but I bet you it wasn't
in this month so this is why the technique we're going to learn in a minute is going
to make it a lot easier for you to respond quickly and automatically but first before
I share this technique, the Echo 10 Technique, I'd like to tell your story about how I
got this technique a teacher who told me about a student who on a Friday had a band 6 and
was quite struggling with his English ability I think he's a Turkish student actually and
then a week later, he came back and he'd almost jumped a band score, and the teacher was quite
surprised like how did you do that so fast? and he said that he'd been listening to BBC
World Service and not just listening but he was listening and then repeating and trying
to mimic what the announcer, what the broadcaster was saying, and she said that his vocabulary
improved, his fluency improved, his grammar and his rhythm improved basically, an overall,
across-the-board increase in his speaking ability and we are going to use a similar
technique for the IELTS Speaking it's called the Echo 10 Technique and what we do is we
listen to a mock speaking and I've put some links to mock speakings that I've prepared
specifically for this technique and we listen to them and we pause them and then we repeat
it now I recommend you doing this at least 10 times and if it gets a little bit too easy
for you then you can always up the ante, so to speak you can just increase the difficulty
if you hear me say, I think crime is a very sensitive topic nowadays, you can transform
that into the third person and then you say he thinks crime is a very sensitive topic
nowadays pause also you could listen to the phrase and then you can transform it into
the past this is even more demanding it's an even more technical skill so you would
say he thought that crime is a very sensitive topic in the past what you're doing there
is you're practicing the tenses, you're practicing your agility with the language but when you're
listening we should aim to be as close as possible so we not only aim for the correct
pronunciation, the exact vocabulary, the right rhythm, but we also pay attention to the mouth
movements and this is why I want you to use my videos for this technique because one,
they're already on IELTS topics, they're already model answers, but also I speak at a slightly
slower rate than a native English speaker this is just because through practice and
through lots and lots of teaching if I speak at a normal rate, it's quite difficult for
students to understand me but as a non-native English-speaker speaking at this speed it's
perfect it's fine secondly, I vocalize a lot this is why it makes it easier for you to
understand me because I'm vocalizing vocalizing is a good skill to develop and what it means
is you open your mouth fully you do not swallow the ends of the words you know, like it's
quite common especially in British English but you vocalize and you pronounce every sound
of the word and it makes your speaking much clearer and easier to understand now if you
like the video, please press like below and also tell me what material you're going to
use this technique with are you going to watch James Bond videos and copy James Bond ten
times? or are you going to use the mock speaking videos?
let me know I'd be very curious to find out and also if you're interested in improving
your speaking without an IELTS partner, without a speaking partner, then have a look at the
app link below and all the best with your IELTS preparation
