IELTS Speaking 1

Speaking Tip

1) Don’t speak too quickly. It can make it difficult for the examiner to understand you.
2) Don’t mumble. Speak clearly or the examiner won’t understand you.
3) If you can’t answer a question, tell the examiner. He or she will explain a word (Part 1 and 2) or re-phrase the question (Part 3).
4) Look at the examiner when you are speaking; this is not considered impolite.
