Hi, there. My name is Emma, and in today's lesson, we will be looking at how to do well

0:08

on the speaking part of the IELTS. So the speaking part of the IELTS is divided up into

0:15

three sections. Today, we're just going to be looking at section No. 1. So first of all,

0:21

I will explain how to do well -- oh, sorry. First, I'll explain what happens in Part 1

0:26

of the IELTS. And from there, we'll look at some things you should do to do well and some

0:32

things you shouldn't do, okay? So let's get started.

0:37

So what happens in Part 1 of the IELTS? Well, first of all, the speaking Part 1 of the IELTS

0:44

is for both those taking the General IELTS exam and the Academic. So whether you're taking

0:52

the Academic or the General IELTS, it's the same test with the same questions.

0:58

Okay. It lasts between four to five minutes. It's made up of first an introduction. So

1:06

the examiner is going to introduce himself or herself. Then, you will introduce yourself.

1:12

So for example, "Hi. My name is Emma. Nice to meet you." Okay, so there's an introduction.

1:17

And then, the examiner is going to ask you some questions about yourself. So these questions

1:24

aren't that difficult. Usually, they're about where you're from. So for example what city

1:31

you were born in, where you grew up. They might be about work. They might be about what

1:36

you study, about your friends, about your hobbies, food, sports, and another thing I

1:44

don't have up here, family. Family is also common on this part of the IELTS. Okay? So

1:51

usually, the examiner, after introducing himself or herself, they will talk to you about two

1:59

of these topics. Okay?"

2:02

Now, the way they mark this part of the IELTS is they're looking specifically for pronunciation,

2:10

okay? So can they understand what you're saying? Do you pronounce things well? They're going

2:16

to be looking at fluency. So what's "fluency"? Well, do you go, "Uh, um, uh, uh" a lot during

2:27

the test? Or do you speak very clearly, in a very nice rhythmic way? Do you use organizers

2:36

or transitions? "First of all, secondly, finally." Do you use words like this? "Another reason."

2:44

Or do you have problems speaking at a normal rate? So they look at that in fluency."

2:53

Then, they mark you also on vocabulary. Do you use words like "good, bad" a lot? Those

3:02

are very low-level words. Or do you use high level words that really show off your vocabulary?"

3:09

The final thing you're marked on is grammar and accuracy. So for example, do you only

3:17

use the present test for the whole test or are you able to correctly use the present

3:23

tense, the past tense, present perfect, future? How well is your grammar? Okay?

3:31

So don't panic. Maybe you're weak in grammar. Maybe you make some mistakes in grammar. But

3:38

you're marked equally on these four components, okay? So now, let's look at some tips on how

3:46

to do well on Part 1 of the speaking part of the IELTS.

3:52

Okay. So what are some of the things we should do to get a good mark in Part 1 of the IELTS

3:59

for speaking? Well, we have a list here of dos. Okay? So these are things you want to

4:07

do. So the first thing that's very important is when you first meet the examiner, okay?

4:14

If you're very nervous, and you don't make eye-contact, and you look at the floor the

4:18

whole time, you're not going to do well on the IELTS even if your English is pretty good.
