Hi, there. Welcome to EngVid.
Today, we are looking at how to maximize your points on IELTS speaking tests, in particular one and three.
I'm going to be giving you some very valuable tips for how to make the most and how to do your very best in these tests.
So what do you need to do? You need to answer with a little bit more detail.
You need to extend your answers a little bit, okay? Answer the question that they ask.
Okay. It doesn't matter if you prepare something and they don't -- they ask a question that your answer is no good for, drop it.
You have to make an effort to answer their question.
Now, today, we're gonna be looking at using some relative pronouns and some relative adverbs to lengthen out your sentences a little bit, okay?
So extending your answers, answering the question.
As you may be aware, IELTS speaking tests one and three,
they're particularly looking for you to give information about yourself, to tell people about yourself, okay?
So I'm saying that these pronouns and adverbs are gonna be particularly helpful.
So these pronouns you put in the middle of sentences to continue the sentence and give a bit more information.
So you'd use "who" to describe people.
"The person I met who is a shopkeeper" --
比如" The person I met who is a shopkeeper"（我碰见的那个人是个商店老板），
"The person I went to school with who is now a famous movie star" -- okay?
" The person I went to school with who is now a famous movie star" （以前跟我一起上学的那个人，现在成了一位著名影星）。
So "who", when you're giving more information about the person, okay, who's doing something, who's the subject. Okay?
所以，如果你们要讲述关于某个人的一些情况，就用" who"，知道了吗？某个人在做什么之类的。这里的" who" 指的就是主语。
