Do you have strategies for increasing your score in Speaking Part 3? Do you know what the examiner is listening for?

Speaking Part 3 is your last chance to show the examiner that you deserve a 7+ on your Speaking exam, so take notes on these strategies and PRACTICE using them!


These strategies are guaranteed to increase your Speaking score:

Organize your Speaking Part 3 Answers Clearly

If you haven’t already watched it, please watch my video about how to organize your Speaking Part 3 answers.

Opinion → Specific details/examples → One sentence conclusion

Keep your answer tightly organized, or else you start to wander off topic, repeat yourself, and ramble on for too long. All of these things will lower your Speaking score.

Talk about Interesting Ideas

If you listen to our podcast, you have heard Lindsay and me talk about the “culture of thinking.”

Basically, if you want to give interesting, strong and high-scoring answers on IELTS Speaking and Writing, you need to start developing your ideas now.

Read the newspaper and watch movies. It’s fun, and it’s IELTS preparation!

Use Impressive Vocabulary

Firstly, this also encompasses the linking words you use. Use the same high-level linking as in Writing Task 2.

Secondly, you will acquire interesting, native-speaker vocabulary when you follow rule number 2- read the newspaper and watch movies!

In our online IELTS course, 3 Keys IELTS, we give you all the strategies you need to score highly on all parts of the IELTS Exam.
