Many people taking the IELTS exam don’t prepare fully for the Speaking Test. This is a great shame, because with help (plus, of course, lots of practice) you can learn some very powerful ways to get the best possible Band score, even if your English has some errors or your vocabulary is limited.
This book is based on our years of experience preparing candidates for the IELTS exam. We have found that by following these methods, a candidate can improve a Band score by up to 3 levels just by improving their test strategies.
This book shows you our proven strategies for each part of the Speaking Test, plus transcripts of candidates giving spoken answers at a Band 9 standard, so you can see what is possible. There are also FAQs on the Speaking Test, and 2 complete practice Speaking Tests for you to use to prepare for the exam.
If you need a dictionary while reading this book, we recommend the free Cambridge Dictionaries Online from Cambridge University Press.
