11/24/18, 12:52 PM - +353 89 982 2568: SPEAKING TIPS �

1. DO NOT MEMORISE ANSWERS


Lots of people think that the best way to do well in the speaking test is to
remember scripted answers and simply use these in the test. This is a bad idea
because memorised answers are very obvious and examiners are trained to spot them.
You will not only lose marks, but the examiners may also ask you more difficult
questions to test your English and establish your real level.
2. DO NOT WORRY ABOUT EXAMINER'S OPINION
I was surprised when some students told me that you can only do well on the
speaking test if the examiner agrees with your opinion. Nothing could be further
from the truth. Examiners are not concerned with your opinion; they just want you
to demonstrate your speaking ability. Focus on giving a fluent answer that responds
to the question and is grammatically correct.

3. DO NOT USE LOTS OF BIG WORDS


A common misconception is that you must have very long, ‘complicated’ words in
every sentence to get a high score on the test. If you listen to how native
speakers talk, this just doesn't happen, unless you are at a conference of
university professors. You should try to show the examiner that you have a wide-
ranging vocabulary, but you should not try to use words you don’t fully understand.
If you try to use ‘complicated’ words you don’t fully understand, it is very likely
that you will make mistakes and lose marks.

* If you are not 110% sure about the meaning and form of a word, don’t use it.*****

4. DO NOT SHOW OFF YOUR GRAMMAR


This point is connected to the previous one. Many candidates feel that they need to
show the examiner how amazing their grammar is in order to get a high mark. Again,
the danger here is trying to use grammar you are not 100% sure about and then
losing control of the sentence. There is no point in using the future perfect
continuous tense if it is not appropriate to do so. Think about the tense you need
to use when practising, and familiarise yourself with functional language for
giving opinions, contrasting views, emphasising, and so on.

5. DO NOT LEAVE THE QUESTION UNATTEMPTED.


This seems like an obvious piece of advice but you would be surprised by how many
students prefer to say nothing rather than attempt to give an answer. It is always
better to attempt an answer than simply say nothing. Many students feel this way,
perhaps because their old teacher told them to say nothing or criticised them if
they didn't know the answer. In the IELTS speaking test, you are not expected to
give a perfect response to a question or to be an expert in many different areas.
The main thing is to demonstrate your speaking ability. If you don’t know the
answer, it is always acceptable to say something like ‘I don’t have much knowledge
of this subject, but I think…’ or ‘I'm not really sure, but if I had to say….’, and
attempt an answer.

6. DO NOT BE LATE
Make sure you give yourself lots of time to get to the examination centre and find
out where your speaking test will be. By getting there early you will be able to
get comfortable in your surroundings and concentrate solely on the exam. Don’t be
afraid to ask the staff any questions you might have; they are there to help.

7. DO NOT RELY ON EXAMINER.


Some students think the speaking examiner will prompt you if you are talking too
much or too little, or not speaking loudly enough, or if you are not sticking to
the question asked. In fact, the examiner has no duty to do any of these things and
she or he will allow you to make mistakes and not tell you. Take control of your
own speaking and don’t look to the examiner for cues or help.

11/25/18, 1:03 AM - +353 89 982 2568: Put a #frog in a pot, full of water and start
warming up the water. As the water temperature begins to rise, the frog adjusts its
body temperature accordingly. The Frog continues to adjust its body temperature
with the increasing #temperature of water. Just when the water is about to reach
the boiling point, the frog can't adjust anymore. Right now, the frog decides to
jump.

The Frog tries to jump, but is not able to do so because he has lost all his
strength by adjusting with the temperature of the rising #water. Very soon the frog
dies.

What #killed the frog?

Think about it!

I know many of us are going to say #boiling water. But the truth about what killed
the frog was his own inability to decide when to jump.

We all have to adjust to people and #situations, but we have to be safe and sure
when we have to adjust and when to move on.
If we let people exploit us #physically, #emotionally, #financially, #spiritually
or #mentally, it will continue.

Let's decide when to jump!


Let's jump while we still have the strength.

want to get your required band in a satisfying way so this is not a challening
issue.I am going to pen a few techniques for you people to cross the river of IELTS
in a comfortable boat.
Writing Task1
1) Read the question for specific information.
2) Use various sentence structures simple, compound and complex as well as
advance vocabulary with accuracy.
3) Do not copy words from the question.
4) Pen down specific information from the question to achieve task requirements.
5) Donot share your own ideas in task1.
6) Passive structures are more than essential for higher band.
7) Pay specific attention to cohesive devices.

quickly. Answers may come slowly. There may be a gap between answers. Don't panic.
This
is common in section 4.

Look out for answers which are


plural. IELTS know that students have difficulty hearing the plural “s”. So, these
answers will certainly be given to test your listening ability.

12/11/18, 3:38 PM - +353 89 982 2568: SPEAKING TIPS �

1. DO NOT MEMORISE ANSWERS


Lots of people think that the best way to do well in the speaking test is to
remember scripted answers and simply use these in the test. This is a bad idea
because memorised answers are very obvious and examiners are trained to spot them.
You will not only lose marks, but the examiners may also ask you more difficult
questions to test your English and establish your real level.

2. DO NOT WORRY ABOUT EXAMINER'S OPINION


I was surprised when some students told me that you can only do well on the
speaking test if the examiner agrees with your opinion. Nothing could be further
from the truth. Examiners are not concerned with your opinion; they just want you
to demonstrate your speaking ability. Focus on giving a fluent answer that responds
to the question and is grammatically correct.

3. DO NOT USE LOTS OF BIG WORDS


A common misconception is that you must have very long, ‘complicated’ words in
every sentence to get a high score on the test. If you listen to how native
speakers talk, this just doesn't happen, unless you are at a conference of
university professors. You should try to show the examiner that you have a wide-
ranging vocabulary, but you should not try to use words you don’t fully understand.
If you try to use ‘complicated’ words you don’t fully understand, it is very likely
that you will make mistakes and lose marks.

* If you are not 110% sure about the meaning and form of a word, don’t use it.*****

4. DO NOT SHOW OFF YOUR GRAMMAR


This point is connected to the previous one. Many candidates feel that they need to
show the examiner how amazing their grammar is in order to get a high mark. Again,
the danger here is trying to use grammar you are not 100% sure about and then
losing control of the sentence. There is no point in using the future perfect
continuous tense if it is not appropriate to do so. Think about the tense you need
to use when practising, and familiarise yourself with functional language for
giving opinions, contrasting views, emphasising, and so on.

5. DO NOT LEAVE THE QUESTION UNATTEMPTED.


This seems like an obvious piece of advice but you would be surprised by how many
students prefer to say nothing rather than attempt to give an answer. It is always
better to attempt an answer than simply say nothing. Many students feel this way,
perhaps because their old teacher told them to say nothing or criticised them if
they didn't know the answer. In the IELTS speaking test, you are not expected to
give a perfect response to a question or to be an expert in many different areas.
The main thing is to demonstrate your speaking ability. If you don’t know the
answer, it is always acceptable to say something like ‘I don’t have much knowledge
of this subject, but I think…’ or ‘I'm not really sure, but if I had to say….’, and
attempt an answer.

6. DO NOT BE LATE
Make sure you give yourself lots of time to get to the examination centre and find
out where your speaking test will be. By getting there early you will be able to
get comfortable in your surroundings and concentrate solely on the exam. Don’t be
afraid to ask the staff any questions you might have; they are there to help.

7. DO NOT RELY ON EXAMINER.


Some students think the speaking examiner will prompt you if you are talking too
much or too little, or not speaking loudly enough, or if you are not sticking to
the question asked. In fact, the examiner has no duty to do any of these things and
she or he will allow you to make mistakes and not tell you. Take control of your
own speaking and don’t look to the examiner for cues or help.

12/15/18, 8:26 PM - +353 89 982 2568: Task 2 advice: Don't write main points
without explanations and examples.
Some candidates write paragraphs that contain many main points but without enough
simple explanations or examples. This is one way to guarantee that your TA score
will be no more than 6 (and also damage your other scores).

Sometimes, students think that they are actually developing their main points,
instead of making new ones. One way to tell if your sentence might be a main point
is if it contains a number of abstract words or phrases. In the following paragraph
written by a student of mine, look for the abstract ideas that you think needed to
be explained and/or exemplified:

"The main reason why grandchildren do not have enough time is the pressure from
their own study. The younger generation generally has heavier expectations on them,
which leads to a highly tense social environment. This environment gives them a lot
of push on working on themselves but often ignores the relationships between
grandparents and grandchildren."

This is my list:
the pressure from their own study
heavier expectations
highly tense social environment
a lot of push on working on themselves
the relationships between grandparents and grandchildren

It would be impossible for anyone (even me) to develop well all the main ideas in
this paragraph in exam conditions.

When planning, candidates who want more than 6 in writing need to be selective
about which ideas they are going to develop and be prepared to forget about some
good ideas that they brainstormed.
12/15/18, 8:26 PM - +353 89 982 2568: Plan For Learning Vocabulary
1. Make a list of key topics to learn, such as: "1. for meetings / 2. for phone
calls" etc..
2. Make a priority for each one - such as "phone calls" is priority 1 etc..
3. Think how quickly you need to learn each topic.
4. Make a plan for learning a certain amount each week.
5. For example, you could say, that you would learn 50 new words a week + check all
the other recent previous ones you have learned.
6. Make an excel sheet or other document to record words, which are being
learned/have been learned, to check again.
7. When you are learning new words, try to use them as much as possible, in your
speech/writing in letters etc. to strengthen your memory.
8. You can choose which words to learn by looking in vocabulary lists / words that
people sent you in emails etc. that you need to learn and remember after.
9. In English, sometimes words have different functions, such as "well" can mean
adjective/aderb "good" or noun "a place to get water"/ verb "to well" etc, - only
learn the important usages for your situation and clearly here "well" the
adjective/adverb are the frequent useful options.
12/15/18, 8:26 PM - +353 89 982 2568: Helping verbs
Is, am, are, was, were, have, has, had, will, will have...
There are 3 reasons due to which we use helping verbs
1) When we are 100% sure about someone or something for example
(Ali is a teacher ) In this case I am sure about Ali that's why I used (is)
2) We use it when we want to discuss various era like past present and future
For example
I was a teacher in 2007
I am a teacher
I will be a teacher in 2019
3) if we change helping verb in a sentence it will change main verb of that
sentence for example
I am playing cricket
I have played cricket
In first sentence( am) is helping while playing is main verb
Where in the second sentence( have) is helping while played is main verb
12/15/18, 8:26 PM - +353 89 982 2568: Modal verbs
Can, could, would, should, have to, has to, ought to, may, might, must, may have,
might have, must have...
There are 3 key reasons due to which we use modal verbs
1 we use it when we are not 100% sure about someone or something
For example
Ali may be a student
So in this case the speaker is not sure about the person.
2) If we change modal verb in a sentence it will not change main verb
For example
I can teach English
I could teach English in 2007 so main verb remains same.
3 We use modal verbs to talk about ability possibility prediction and compulsion
12/15/18, 8:26 PM - +353 89 982 2568: You have to compare the verb in question with
the verb in the passage if there is helping verb in the passage while modal verb in
the question so the answer must be No or false
For example
Passage
Ali is a student
Question
Ali may be a student
So answer is No
12/15/18, 8:26 PM - +353 89 982 2568: You have to compare main of question with the
passage in order to get correct answer
For example
Passage
He ate mango
Question
Mango was eaten
So answer is yes
Because both sentences hold same meaning
So you have to pay specific attention to sentence structure and main verb
