9 important IELTS Tips for Speaking

1. Deliver a full answer. Don't answer in a word. Try to say in detail. If you are asked “Where are you from?” speak in detail, the area you are in from and how long you are there. This focuses that you have skill in speaking English. Do not unnecessarily exaggerate your answer.

2. Clarity is first: Stress and accent are important but less important than a wrong answer. The important point is that you speak the best you can so the assessor can evaluate you. If you make a mistake, don't be anxious, just correct yourself and continue going.

3. Use exciting words that express emotion. Apply advanced vocabulary for every easy word you know – such as delighted instead of happy etc.

4. Keep Speaking. In some situations, students speak unclearly and softly because they feel nervous or are not confident of their words. Advanced vocabulary does not mean complicated vocabulary.

5. Don't use colloquial words. Pick to be formal rather than informal while communication. Keep a stable speed - neither too fast nor too slow.

6. Ask questions, if necessary, in Part 3 only. You can’t ask questions in Part 1 and 2, but you have an option, if required, in Part 3.

7. Live with topic. Don't go out of topic, otherwise the examiner will consider you have misunderstood and may give you a poor mark.

8. Do regular discussions with friends or family members. Develop your skill to speak about any subject, using diversified sentence structure and vocabulary.

9. Use a watch. To catch an idea of how long two minutes is and approximately how much content you will have to deliver.
