Mistakes That Must be Avoided When it Comes to the Speaking Part of the IELTS

Speaking in English is very common for Filipinos. We often listen to folks talking in English all over the place - in college, in the company, in restaurants and even at home. Because of the integration of the English language in our education system, Filipinos have already been exposed and have a long expertise in the English language. Therefore, as Filipinos, we are very privileged to have the opportunity to have English as our second language. In the eventuality of taking an English skill exam such as the IELTS or the International English Language Testing System, taking the speaking exam brings panic to the candidates making them commit mistakes throughout the test. For that reason, the applicants for the IELTS exam seek support for methods and practices to keep them aimed at their examination. What is apparently the typical problems candidates do in the speaking test?




One thing the applicants need to keep from is having long breaks in answering. It is okay to temporarily halt for a few seconds but not long. Temporarily halting too long creates an effect that one does not obviously know what the question is all about. Rather than taking long pauses, one can say, This query is a little rough, but I think…. By doing this, the candidate is able to buy some time for him or her to think of his or her answer.



A great deal of candidates have gone through training in IELTS review centers. Centers give training and give styles in giving solutions. The only matter with this is when candidates use the same template in answering in the real assessment. The solutions do not come out naturally and these can be noticed by the interviewer. If one does this, there is a great deduction on the candidate’s score.



Avoid repeating the question. For example the interviewer asks, What is your preferred book? Avoid saying “My preferred book is…”. The interviewer gauges how well an applicant can modify syntax and play with grammar. Echoing the question will not give candidates a high score.



Listen to the question properly. Some applicants answer the question right away without really understanding the task. Consequently, they are not able to answer the question properly. Prospects should listen carefully on what the task needs to create an efficient response.

Being in front of a native speaker is obviously one factor that makes these applicants feel anxious in the evaluation. The condition with getting worried is that it causes mental block for the choice. Even so, when applicants are enrolled in an IELTS review, these complaints are wiped out and given solution to be able to properly succeed in the speaking examination.
