The first part of each unit introduces vocabulary related to the topic, as well as phrases and language that can be applied to any topic. The vocabulary exercises give you the opportunity to express complex ideas and opinions which prepares you for the actual IELTS Speaking test.

The vocabulary is presented using Collins COBUILD dictionary definitions. The pronunciation and grammar exercises help you to develop accurate pronunciation and good grammar which will enable you to succeed in the IELTS test.

In every unit, you are given the opportunity to practise the new language you have learnt by attempting questions from Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 of the IELTS Speaking test. These test questions increase your familiarity with the exam format and help to build your confidence.

The audio scripts for sample answers are at the back of the book. Learning from them will help you to achieve the desired score.

Using Collins Speaking for IELTS for self-study :

If you are new to IELTS, we recommend that you work systematically through the 12 units in order to benefit from the book’s progressive structure. If you are a more experienced learner, you can use the aims listed at the start of each unit to select the most useful exercises.

Each unit contains between three and four hours of study material.  You can either choose to work alone or study with a partner willing to give and receive peer feedback.

Avoid writing the answers to vocabulary exercises directly into the book so that you can try the exercises again after have completed the unit. As you attempt the exercises in each unit, if you find any language that you particularly useful or relevant write it down in a separate notebook. 

Try to revise what you have learnt before attempting the practice IELTS questions in each unit. This will improve the quality of your answers.

Record your answers if you can. It will develop your self-awareness: you will be able to understand your strengths and areas that need improvement. In addition, getting to know your progress will increase your confidence and motivation. Remember that there are no ’right’ or wrong’ answers to the exam questions: the examiner will mark you for the language and not for the subject.

Once you have answered the practice IELTS questions, listen to the sample answers. You can also read the sample answers in the audio scripts section at the back of the book. Write down all the useful vocabulary and grammatical structures. Be aware that vocabulary is not just single words. Please pay attention to collocations.

It is recommended that you play the sample answers a second time. This time, read the words as you listen, imitating as closely as possible the native speakers’ pronunciation.

It is very important that you do not memorise entire sentences or answers. IELTS examiners are trained to spot this and will change the topic if they think you are repeating memorised answers. With its structured approach, wide range of relevant exercises, and exam tips and techniques, “Speaking for IELTS” should equip you with the skills and language, as well as the confidence, necessary to tackle unfamiliar questions on the day of the exam.

Unit 12 is a complete practice speaking test. This unit should be done under exam conditions including setting yourself the time limits that are suggested. There is also a sample answer for this practice test. So you can listen to the audio and read the audio script to learn from the experience.
