Are you afraid that you are too shy to get a high score on the IELTS Speaking test?

A lot of our listeners feel being shy is going to hold them back from IELTS success.

Today we’ll show you what you can do if you have this problem.

One thing you can do is create a new character for yourself during the Speaking test.

You can imagine yourself as someone who is outgoing and gregarious.

Give yourself an English name.

Practice the Speaking test with your new character so that when you get into the Speaking test you will be someone else, not yourself. You will shift your mindset for the test.

Have fun with this technique.

3-step system to become more outgoing during the Speaking test:

  • Step 1: When you prepare by yourself, don’t worry about talking yet. During your preparation just write down 3-5 sentences to answer Speaking test questions. Use complete sentences. Add details. Answer the questions “who, what, when, where, why?”
  • Step 2: Read your answers out loud and practice saying them.
  •  Step 3: Practice answering the question without writing down the answer.
