It is difficult to improve speaking by yourself, but with our IELTS Speaking Correction Service you have a great opportunity to do so.
The greatest difficulty is knowing what your grammar problems are and how to improve them.
With this service you can email or share an audio sample of you doing a two minute talk. This is what you have to do in Part Two of the speaking test.
You will also need to send through a written transcript of your talk (you could speak into an automatic transcriber to save you time).
From this sample, you will be provided with a full analysis using the official IELTS marking criteria, which is based on:
So you will be advised on any problems with your fluency, coherency, vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. Once you know this, you can focus on the aspect of your speaking that you need to improve.
But most importantly your grammar errors will be noted and you'll be given corrections.
From this you'll be able to note what kind of issues you need to focus on to improve and see exactly where you are going wrong.
The cost is $20 for one speaking feedback.
After purchasing, you will be directed to download a PDF document with instructions about how to get started.
Please note that you'll have to make your own recording on your computer or anything else you decide to use, so make sure that you can access the software to do this.
If you have a microphone on your computer then your computer should have some software to make a recording. Some advice on this will be sent in the PDF.
Your recording must be clear and no more than two minutes (the length of the Part Two). Anything over two minutes will not be graded.
You'll get your grading back in 1-3 days.
