Okay, here are a few important tips and answers to common IELTS Speaking questions.

IELTS Speaking Test is not a test of content or knowledge. It is a test of your language ability. Students are often worried about the quality of their ideas. Do not worry whether your answer is relevant or not as long as it is delivered in correct English.

Moreover, it is not a test of how accurately and truthfully you give an answer. In other words, you can LIE. Just make sure you do not make any grammar mistake or lose fluency while thinking of something creative.

Do not repeat your statement and/ or words. “I believe the sports are important because ….. important because …….”. No. You’ll lose score for that. Even if you’ve said something wrong, do not try to correct it. Doing so will unnecessarily create stress and will consume energy that you could have used in delivering the right answer (right = correct English).

Should I repeat the question statement? Well, try not to. Repeating the question statement is often construed as the candidate’s inability to present an answer in her own words. Practice speaking in your own language. Develop your vocabulary.

Speaking English is not meant for the IELTS class only. I advise students to speak on various common topics at home. Observe the things around you closely – family, technology, neighbors, city, television, newspaper, furniture, clothes, jewelry, books, college, job. The list is endless.

Record your voice and you can share it with me. I’ll be happy to offer some feedback. My WhatsApp number is +91 9888922203.

The more you practice speaking on these topics, the better will be your command over the language. This will not only give you greater firepower to extend your answers, but also develop the ability to talk about likes, dislikes, habits, and opinions.

Best wishes for your endeavor!


Why you need expert guidance in IELTS exam?

Most of us live life in an autopilot mode. We leave things to fate. How many times do we blame our condition on circumstances merely by saying “I could not have done anything better.” IELTS students often say “I worked extremely hard this time but could not increase score above 6.5. What else could I have done?”

What else could I have done? That is a million dollar question. To give an answer to that question, let me draw an analogy.

Have you ever wondered why airplanes, mostly, arrive at intended destination in time? The reason is simple and it holds an important lesson in everyone’s life. Airplanes, unlike our lives, are perpetually on course correction mode. Pilots get expert guidance on actual events and course from ground staff. What can happen if they fail to take directions from the ground staff?

Well, a lot of unfortunate things may happen. For instance, a passenger jet left New Zealand in 1979 with 257 passengers on-board for a sight seeing trip to Antarctica. However, a two degree flaw in flight coordinates placed them 28 miles east of their actual position and the plane came in path of an active volcano Mount Erebus. The plane along with its crew and 257 passengers met with an unfortunate end.

A minor error of two degrees brought an unfortunate and enormous tragedy.

It is an analogy of our lives. Imagine how off-course do we live our lives. More specifically, how off-course we are when we’re preparing for IELTS. Most of us prefer to save a few dollars and score 6 bands than paying a well trained tutor and improving to more than 7 bands. Remember:

“Small things – if not corrected – become big hurdles, ALWAYS.”

At ELTEC our trained team makes sure through consistent practice that you are never off-course and that you achieve your targeted bands to cherish your dream of studying in a western country.
