The IELTS Speaking section is a test of your ability to speak in an English-speaking environment. You will be asked to answer questions, talk about a familiar topic and give opinions on different subjects.
The test is divided into three sections:
Section 1: You will be asked to answer a question on a given topic.
Section 2: You will be given a task card on a particular topic, and this will include key points that you should talk about.
Section 3: You will be asked a broader range of questions based on your topic in speaking part 2.
The IELTS Speaking test is scored out of 9 bands, with Band 9 being the highest and Band 1 being the lowest.
TIP: Record your practice sessions and evaluate yourself based on the four IELTS assessment criteria: fluency, lexical resource (your range of vocabulary), grammatical range and accuracy, and pronunciation.
Go over your recording to identify your weaknesses. Could you have used better vocabulary? How fluent were you? Could you have used more complex structures? How was your pronunciation? Work on your shortcomings until you produce a better recording.
