  • 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
