Dont’s Of The Speaking Section

Sometimes it is better to know what not to do rather than knowing what to do. So, here are the Dont’s Of The Speaking Section-:

  • Don’t speak in a monotone. Speak with enthusiasm.
  • Don’t give yes or no answers.
  • Don’t repeat the question. For example-:Do you like sports. Yes I like sports. Prefer,Yes there are many sports I find fun and engaging.
  • Don’t go off the topic.Don’t expand too much that you forget the topic. For e.g. Don’t start with Toronto and lead to education and technology.
  • Don’t say I don’t know. You should know about yourself.
  • Don’t speak too quickly or too slowly.
  • Practice speaking in environments you get nervous.

Don’t worry about being perfect. Even if you are aiming for a band 9 you need not to be perfect! If you make mistakes and can correct easily, do that. If you can’t do that, don’t. It might be possible the examiner did not even noticed it.

Do’s Of The Speaking Round

Every interview, meeting or date that you are in has its own set of protocols. Going for an IELTS Speaking interview, well it has its own!! You may do your own experiments or try out the tested ones. Below are some of the tried and tested things that you can do –

  1. When you meet the examiner, present yourself with confidence. Go in the test knowing you will do great. Don’t be overconfident rather be optimistic.
  2. Be friendly.
  3. Body language is very important. So make eye contact and look at them but then don’t stare. Don’t talk in a monotone. Be a little excited about what you are speaking.
  4. Don’t use simple easy boring low-level words. For examples: I like Indian food because it is tasty. Good thing to do is look at the topics they will ask you. E.g. Food. Find vocabulary related to food. For example. Cuisine. So you may say, I love Indian cuisine because of the spices.
  5. Don’t overuse “I like”. Instead, use I enjoy. Or maybe I really love. I prefer sports etc. You may use others as well.
  6. Expand your answers. Maybe the examiner asks you some questions. Examples:Do you love playing sports? The answer you may say is no. Avoid doing this rather explain in detail. Don’t just say yes or no. Examples: Where are you from. I could just say I am from Almora. This won’t help. Expand the answer. I am from Almora and it is one of the most beautiful hill stations. Don’t be too large but then neither too short. One way to expand is by giving example. What is your favorite food? I love Indian cuisine. I like rajma. They make it using this and that.
  7. Practice. You know the types of questions they will ask. Practice a lot. Practice at places where you feel the pressure. With people that make you tensed.

Remember, practice and practice a lot. You are always just one step away from success. So, take the first step.


What is Speaking Section #IELTS


Speaking section takes place in the first part of the IELTS. This section is common for both the general as well as the academic aspirants.

There may be some queries regarding your favorite sports or food? Questions about your work also pop up.

What the examiner is trying to find out here is whether you can make some effective conversations or not. So, avoid using filler words like “umm” or “aaaa” while speaking. When the examiner checks for your fluency they also check whether you start from some topic and end in there or you wander.


You must have heard that a person vocabulary tells the mental growth of the person. So work on your vocabulary. Avoid using words with less rank. E.g., good, bad, okay. Rather use may be fantastic, disappointing, excited etc.


When the examiner checks for your grammar they don’t just see whether you used the tenses in a correct way. They also consider whether you make use of all the tenses or are you just stuck with one.


Make sure you always pronounce the word in the correct way. Why do they check this? To make sure that you are able to make meaningful conversations with people in their country. So make sure you pronounce correctly.

Remember, you are marked equally on all of them. So, focus on all of them. Go into the room with confidence. Be friendly and you surely will come out with success on your shoulders.
