How to ace your IELTS speaking Examination?

The International English Language Test System popularly known as IELTS is a passage that leads to the dreams of an immigrant aspirant. There is no movement of application until and unless the aspirant clears the IELTS examination. So, for those who aspire to opt for foreign education or want to settle in Canada in the professional quota or even those who are moving with their spouses or families requires to clear the IELTS. It is compulsory to move your application.

If you are wondering why it is compulsory then the answer is it will help the aspirant to communicate effectively. If a person is not aware about the foreign language in a foreign land, how will they communicate their thoughts and requirements to the other people. So, it is an important requirement to survive in a new or foreign country. If you are not able to communicate then you may not be able to share your feelings, thoughts and knowledge. So, the motto behind the IELTS is that those who are going to the foreign land can easily communicate and explain themselves.

Well, the examination is divided into four important parts including reading, writing, listening and speaking. If an aspirant is able to ace all these sections of the examination with good bands then they have successfully attempted the paper and cleared it.

All the sections of the examinations are prepared according to a particular format. There is no change in the format during the paper. As in the reading section there are three paragraphs which the student needs to read and answer the given questions. The similar pattern goes for the listening section. There are three conversations that one needs to hear and then answer the given questions in stipulated times. For the writing section, the student is required to write two articles of 150 words and another of 250 words. Topics are shared by the examiner and the aspirant is required to complete the writing section in a given time frame.

The last but very important speaking section is conducted by an individual examiner on a separate day after the other parts of the examination. Again the IELTS speaking format is shared by the aspirants and the examination is conducted on the lines of the same pattern. But the important part is the examiner is right in front of the student as according to the IELTS speaking format and the aspirant may get confused or lose their cool while attempting their speaking test.

So, the point is how to ace the IELTS speaking test. How to maintain the cool and calm as the examiner is right in front. Well, we have some effective tips that will help the aspirants to understand the concept and also will relax them in front of the examiner.


Stay Calm- No matter what you are going through inside. Take a deep breath and stay calm. Do not get nervous or confused. Just take it easy as a conversation.

Do not learn your answers- We urge you not to learn your answers. Memorised language does not give the examiner an accurate measure of your English-language skills. The examiner will be able to tell if you have memorised your answers and this may influence your final band score. Rather, be easy, smile a little and pursue it as a conversation between two acquaintances.


Do not use big or complicated words- You may want to use big words to impress the examiner. But to be safe, avoid using words you are not familiar with. Only use those words which you know and you can pronounce better. If you pick uncomfortable words then you have a higher chance of making mistakes by either mispronouncing words or using them in the wrong context. Such mistakes can affect your final band score. Though you may use a range of vocabulary and it may look good when used in the right context.


Do not worry about your accent- In a face-to-face Speaking test, the IELTS examiner understands a wide range of accents so will be able to understand what you say. If you can communicate well, then there is nothing to worry about. But you have to be aware of sounds that you have difficulty with and make sure to use stress and intonation. Practice with friends and they will tell you if they can't understand what you are saying. Do not give a fake accent just to impress the examiner, just be yourself and have a normal accent.


Pause to think- To be honest, there is no harm in taking a brief, genuine  pause to think about what to say. We all do it to process questions. So, if you need to take a pause it is fine, but then come-up with an effective answer.
