By now, you realize that the IELTS Speaking Exam is not like daily conversation. You cannot just answer even simple questions with short, simple sentences.

That’s why even some native speakers don’t impress immediately in Speaking Part 1.

All IELTS candidates need to know exactly what the examiner is looking for in order to satisfy expectations.

Rule #1: Keep Talking

  • In Speaking Part 1, aim for 3-5 sentences.
  • However, don’t talk forever and wander and repeat yourself though!
  • For example: I’m studying Spanish at the moment because last year I went to South America and couldn’t communicate with anyone. So, I’m studying Spanish 3 nights a week. It’s a short subway ride from my house, and the professor is from Chile.
