IELTS Speaking: How to improve your fluency

When you are preparing for the Speaking test, it’s really important to improve your fluency. Here’s an idea that might help.

A simple exercise

Join with a few friends to practise for Part 2 of the Speaking test, which is the 1-2 minute talk. Each person writes a topic on a piece of paper, folds it up and puts it in a bowl. Topics might be: a friend, a book, an advertisement, a building or a TV show. Then, one by one, you pick a topic from the bowl at random and talk about it for one to two minutes.

The advantage of doing it this way are that you practise talking about a topic you are not familiar with, and you have to talk in front of other people. It’s more difficult than it sounds!

    That’s a wonderful idea. In fact, I do it slightly differently by adapting the Table Topic speech of Toastmaster club.

    While one student is speaking, others evaluate with 4 IELTS speaking criteria. Finally compare the score with that of the Trainer.
