Did I mess up the IELTS speaking
I took my ielts speaking test few days back.
My exam was in the morning but it took me ages to have the speaking, it was at 6 in the evening.
Being a native speaker, I never really thought I would have any trouble with this particular part but unfortunately I think I have messed it up!
The lady looked irritated and worn out! She seemed knackered.
The first part was fine. She asked me when was the first time I brought a flower and a magazine etc. I told her I have never been fond of gardening.
Anyhow, she seemed so uninterested and least concerned that it got me confused.
Her: do you believe in sharing?
Me: no! I don't really share my stuff with anyone. I am quite possessive.
Her: okay. How you promote sharing in children?
Me thinking omg, I have messed it up. I got confused. Part Two
For part 2, she asked have I ever shared something with someone? When? How was it etc etc?
I said "my graduation day" and shared the memories and stuff about that particular day. But she was like "say something more".
I didn't know what to say :/ I was like "What should I say 😳?". I couldn't think of anything,.
I repeated few stuff .. She again said "can you speak more on this". Part Three
God!! Part 3 went fine but now I'm super nervous and scared about my results.
She could tell I was born and brought up here.
And Another mistake "I said privacy in the American accent. While the rest of the conversation was all in British English".
Please! You think I'll cross the 7 mark.
I would love a response. And I'm sorry for such a long post, but I'm petrified and it's getting on my nerves :(
Predicting IELTS Speaking Score
Hello, i did not complete cue card round. I fumbled in middle and examiner stopped me. Also, in part 1 he ask me the season in my country. Though I answer it but afterwards I fumbled. In task 3, he asked me about how we can teach children. I made grammatical mistake. Instead of ourselves, i tell themselves. Can you predict my score. Should I get at least 6?
Contradicted myself in IELTS Speaking
Today i appeared in my IELTS speaking exam and i spoke fine, i gave answers to every question in a professional way. But i am bit worried about one thing.
When my test started examiner asked me do your work or study? i told her that i am computer scientist and work in software company, but when part 2 (Cue card) started i spoke that i used to work with my grandfather and right now i run his car business in a city.
I want to ask is this okay that i have mentioned different working fields in different parts?
The examiner's behavior was very friendly and fine.
Did these mistakes affect my IELTS speaking score?
I had my IELTS Speaking interview today and I wanted to clarify a few things regarding the mistakes I made during the test.
I was quite nervous during the test but tried to maintain my composure.
My Part 1 went well I guess except for the fact that he cut me in the middle of my speaking about the place where I live. I am assuming this was because of time restraints.
I think I spoke alright in part 2 as well and was able to answer the following questions and quoted examples too however I gave short answers for a few and making few mistakes and maybe repeated statements.
However in part 3 I made the biggest mistakes. The question was about archeology and in 2-3 questions I made a few mistakes. One of them I answered shortly and made a few grammatical errors.
However when the question was asked about objects that will educate the future generations or something, out of nervousness I said rockets and flacon 9 and that it will help to learn about the culture or something. I didn't even correct myself and stopped speaking after that sentence.
How badly will these affect my band score?
A reply would help me work on my weak points for the future.
Wanted a band 7.5
by Blank Face
Hi Ielts buddy,
I usually get a band 7 but this time I wanted a 7.5 in the speaking test. So I was quite nervous in the speaking exam, I even told the examiner this. He had to ask why sometimes after some questions in part 1, where I did give answers in the end.
I also had to pause sometimes and in part 3 I just couldn't think of an answer to the last two questions. I just didn't know the answer to those last questions since I never really thought about the topic before. I tried answering them but it took a long time for the words to come out, so the examiner had to stop me in the middle.
Overall, I think my English was good but I think the nerves got the better of me.
Now I'm afraid I'll get a very low score.
Saying the wrong word in IELTS speaking
by Sophia Hale
Okay so I was taking the IELTS speaking exam earlier today and I was asked a question about the safety of social networking sites and I started a sentence saying “there can be...” and I panicked cause I forgot what I was saying and said pedophiles.
Now I’m worried that it’s going to affect my score because I’m not sure if I was allowed to say that or not. Everything else went really smoothly, my pronunciation was perfect and I answered all the questions really well, so will that word affect my score or not?
I really need to know if I’m going to get a 6 or 7 just because I said something stupid.
Difficulty with Questions in the IELTS Speaking Test
by Ashi Kichu
I did my IELTS exam yesterday. But, I didn't answer well 2 or 3 questions. Examiner always asked for the reason and also I didn't use any range of vocabulary.
In the cue card section, last sub question I didn't answer and that question was my first question of third section.
In the discussion part, I didn't understand the question and the examiner repeated it. Finally, at the last question I can't answer.
How will affect my band? Please Help me?
How did I do in my IELTS speaking test?
(Yangon, Myanmar )
Today, I had a sit for IELTS speaking test. But I didn’t satisfy because I couldn’t do well in part 3 questions even though I answered all questions .
And I did some mistakes and 2 incomplete sentences ( ...to prevent dis.) I forgot the word discrimination. That’s why I skip that sentence and tell her different reasons.
The examiner asked me my opinion about wearing uniform by student and also why do staffs from company or cabin crew wear uniform? For those 2 questions, my answer is similar.
Can I get band 5 in speaking?I Worry so much now although I haven’t taken my listening, reading and writing task?
by Mary Tjiu
I just did the IELTS Speaking test today. I messed up in the Part 1 where I was hesitant to speak between Disruption and Disturbance, and repeated that for 3 times with the third attempt I said Disturbtion which is no exist.
But for the rest of the speaking test I think it wasn’t that bad. I’m afraid will that mistake reduce my score? Am I still able to get the band score for at least 7 with that mistake? :(((((((((
IELTS Speaking Long Pause
I was confident at speaking Parts 1 and 2 but at Part 3 I had a long pause and hadn't answered properly in one question but I was able to answer the other questions. Will this greatly affect my marking? I am aiming for 7.
How was my speaking test
by Manpreet kaur
Maam in my speaking I firstly initiated well but in between my speaking I got confused and stopped speaking and said sorry. After that in my cue card i spoke and the examiner said add more and i went on with at least 3 lines more and then she said ok that's enough. In follow ups I got confused but answered and now I think I have messed up.
So will i get 6 or not?
