The IELTS Speaking test is designed to assess a wide range of skills.

The examiner will want to see how well you can

  • communicate opinions and information on everyday topics and common experiences; to do this you will need to answer a range of questions
  • speak at length on a given topic using appropriate language
  • organise your ideas coherently
  • express and justify your opinions
  • analyse, discuss and speculate about issues

Make sure that you relax and talk fluently. You will need to speak naturally.

Things you learn

We believe the key to your success in the IELTS speaking exam comes from 3 things.

Firstly, you need to feel at ease and be confident speaking about yourself and presenting your ideas. The key to this is plenty of practise under exam like conditions!

Secondly, you need to be ready with a range of ideas about potential IELTS topics. On this course you will have plenty of opportunity to explore ideas for typical IELTS themes.

Thirdly, watch how others express themselves in front of an audience. This is why we have created the Confident Speakers Masterclass for native and non-native English speakers to coach you in spoken communication with a professional speaker.
