4 Tips for Providing Information in IELTS Speaking

Happy New Year to all. It has been a long holiday for us. Now's a great time to start the year for sharing our IELTS tips for speaking. Read on.

1. In IELTS speaking, you are scored in relation to the following criteria:

-fluency and coherence
-lexical resource
-grammatical range and accuracy

2. When you answer, neither give a one-word answer nor provide short answers. You are there to show that you have the ability to communicate well in English. Such one-word answers won't enable you to receive high scores.

3. Should you need a few seconds to think before you speak, then you could use phrases like "Well, let me think about that for a moment." or other similar phrases so you'd be able to give yourself time.

4. In IELTS speaking, it is important to keep in mind that you don't get marks on WHAT you say, but on HOW you say it.

Next week, you'll be seeing our tips whenever you need to express or justify opinions in the IELTS speaking module.

Cheers. :)
