Tip #1 Talk out loud to yourself

This is a vital first step.

There’s no one else there, so you don’t have to feel nervous.

What do you talk about, though?

Well, you can’t just practice IELTS questions.

You have to develop your confidence in flexible, spontaneous, natural speech.

Search online for ‘conversation starters’.

Then, talk out loud to yourself for at least 10 minutes a day.

Tip #2 TV scripts

Think of a TV show you really like, especially a sitcom in which people sound confident and relaxed.

  • Friends
  • Cheers
  • Seinfeld

Then, go online and search for a script from this show, choosing an episode that you really enjoyed.

Focus on a character that you want to sound like.

Watch the show, and then read the script out loud.

Tip #3 Talk to someone else!

You must do this step.

If you don’t practice speaking English to another person, you will be very nervous in front of the Examiner on test day.

You can talk to a friend who is also learning English, or find a speaking partner online, like in one of our Facebook groups.

Also, at some point before your test, you should practice the Speaking Exam with an IELTS professional, like one of the experts from our 3 Keys team.

We can give you your estimated band scores, and tell you exactly what you need to practice and improve in order to get the score you need on test day.
