Today I’ll talk about how to learn English fast, and if that’s important for IELTS.

There was a question during my recent Facebook Live IELTS Q and A session about how to learn to speak English fast.

I assume the student wants to improve his speaking quickly, but the question brought up another good point for the IELTS Speaking Exam.

You do not have to speak quickly on your exam.

In fact, you should slow down! Speaking a little bit slowly allows you time to think of ideas and vocabulary. Plus, it gives you space to be expressive.



If you speak too quickly, you won’t be using expressive intonation and stress, which is required for a 7+ for Pronunciation.

Now, as to actually improving your speaking skills, there is no magic key.

You simply must speak English out loud as much as you can every day.

You could talk to yourself, or you can find a speaking partner. Many students in our course use the closed Facebook group to connect with other motivated students.

Also, you could find a script for a favorite movie or TV show and read it out loud. That would be a fantastic and motivating activity!

To increase fluency, try to talk about as many different things as you can- narrating your thoughts out loud, reflecting on a book you read, and expressing your opinions on the news are all great ways to get yourself speaking English!

Put these ideas in your study plan, and prepare to exceed your English speaking expectations!
