Next: stay on topic.
So, even though I said speak in sentences, don't use too many sentences to answer any one question.
So that...because if you do that, then the examiner will think that you don't understand the question.
You want to make sure that you answer the question and don't go way beyond that.
Okay? They always have enough questions to ask you, don't worry.
Next: don't use slang.
Again, you want to use your best English, and slang can even be things like: "kids".
A lot of my students don't realize that you should be using the word: "children" instead of "kids".
Or you should use the word: "items" instead of "things", "stuff", this is all slang.
Okay? Slang is not just bad language, but also this kind of casual language. Right?
You don't want to use that kind of language in your English test or on your IELTS speaking test, use the best English that you know.
And last of all: don't memorize answers.
A lot of students read model answers, and it's good to do that, it gives you an idea of how to answer.
But what you should do from that is to take ideas about how to structure your answer, take some vocabulary, take some expressions,
but don't try to memorize the answer because it's going to sound very artificial.
And if you forget, it's going to completely fall apart, and also, the examiners can...are quite experienced;
they can usually tell if you're suddenly giving like a little speech.
They'll know that's not you, because you also answered, you know, 15 other questions, and you didn't sound like that.
And all of a sudden, you give this little mini speech, and it doesn't sound good,
and they might not give you marks for that at all because it's not you speaking; you just memorized something.
They don't want to know what you can memorize, they want to know what you can say when you're using the language by itself in a natural way. Okay?
So learn how to benefit from those kind of model answers, but don't memorize. Okay?
And I assure you that if you do, a lot of these things or all of these things,
you're definitely going to get a much higher score on your IELTS speaking test, and also on any oral English exam. Okay?
