Overview

Everything you need to know about IELTS Speaking in one book! What exactly do you have to do to get a particular band score? Which easy-to-learn words and phrases can improve your score quickly? What should you include in your answers to impress the examiner? Which aspects of grammar or pronunciation should you focus on?

Anyone aiming for band 6 or higher in IELTS Speaking needs targeted practise and easy-to-follow explanations. This book – the result of years of IELTS examination experience – provides the most up-to-date information and an extensive bank of topics and questions with suggestions on how to create impressive answers that demonstrate to the examiner that your English is of a high standard.

Having taught IELTS preparation courses in China for twelve years and having extensive experience as an IELTS examiner, I have become familiar with the main problems students from different cultural backgrounds face when getting ready to take the test. This book aims to help students deal with these problems. The first part of the book gives an overview of the speaking test and its requirements in terms of the test criteria. This section also includes information on the use of grammar and various parts of speech. The second part of the book provides topics for the three parts of the test with questions and suggestions for active practice. These topics and questions are based on actual topics and questions that appear in the IELTS Speaking Module.

So how is this book different – and better – than other books on the market? First of all, it takes the user through the test and through the test criteria in greater detail than other books. It looks at problems that candidates actually have during the test. Furthermore, it provides candidates with various structured ways to create their own original answers. For each topic, for each part of the test, there are questions followed by suggestions for answer development. Of course, these suggestions are not the only ways to answer the questions, but they provide starting points for candidates who are having difficulty finding ideas. Students should, of course, aim to supplement them with others that they have learnt during their English studies.

Meet the Author

I have been teaching English as a foreign language since 1990, mainly in the Czech Republic and China. I first became an IELTS examiner in January 2001 and have written several books on IELTS that have been published in China, selling over 200,000 copies. My work has also been used to create various apps which have been downloaded tens of thousands of times. The books that I will be publishing on Smashwords are updates of my published works, modified for the international market. The majority of books will be in the 'English 101 Series' which has proven so popular in China. The cover photographs on the Smashwords editions are all by the author.
