IELTS Speaking Tip

An unwritten rule of the IELTS Listening test is that if a candidate stops speaking for
more than 10 seconds at any point during the task, the penalty could be the loss of a band
point. This is particularly true during the so-called “Long Turn,” when you are expected
to speak unassisted for one to two minutes.
One of the main thing the IELTS Listen task tests is a candidate’s “fluency,” which does
not mean the ability to speak like a native-speaker but simply to speak “flowingly,” that
is, without long pauses. The solution to any problem that may come up in the IELTS
Speaking task is simple and always the same: speak. Find a speaking solution.
