Okay, another thing you should do: relate the question you're asked to your own life.
So if they ask you about technology, bring examples of technology you use.
Use examples of technologies you use, I mean.
Use your own experiences.
And if you don't have a lot of experiences in terms of what they're asking -- if they're talking about sports,
you hate sports, you don't have anything to say about sports -- again, you can make it up.
Use your friend's experiences, use what you know from the news.
It's good to use real-life examples.
Okay, this is another important point: it's good to divide up your answer.
Okay? So when they ask you a question, instead of just getting right into it,
you can say: "There are three ways that such and such works.",
"There are three problems with transportation in Toronto.",
"There are several points I'd like to talk about."
Okay? So it's good to divide up what you're going to say by giving a number for your answer.
Another good thing to do is... This part of the IELTS often requires you to use modals.
So what are modals again? "Can", "could", "may", "might", "should" -- these are modals.
You're going to be using them in this part of the IELTS. So brush up on that. Okay, practice using them.
For example, maybe they're asking you: "Who makes the best teachers?"
You could say: "Parents may make the best teachers." Okay? So use modals.
Also learn opinion expressions. So don't just keep saying: "I think", "I think", "I think".
Use something else. "If you ask me", "In my opinion", "It seems to me that", "It appears to me that",
these are all good expressions to use. "I think" is a little bit boring. Okay?
