by Ling BingRui
I have a question about IELTS speaking test. Just wondering what I should say if the examiner asking about some questions that I have no experience. Which I may not familiar. Can I tell about something that is my imagine? Or just say "sorry I don't have this experience". Appreciate your help on this.
Thanks in advance.
If I could not answer one question in the IELTS Speaking Test, will it harm my score?
I Just finished my speaking test (25.9.2015)..
In section 1, examiner's first question was quite tricky (after all the introduction questions).. however I still answered the question..
but the examiner repeated the question again because she could see that I did not answer the question correctly.. I even asked her to repeat the question but I still did not understand nor give her the answer...
after about three times she repeated the question, I gave up and asked her if we can moved to the next questions.. the next questions even in section 2, 3 I did not had any big problem to answer the questions and i think I did well after the 1st "nightmare" question..
I really need to achieve at least band 6 in speaking.. could the "next question" issue will harm my score??
What if I have no experience of an IELTS part 1 speaking question?
When the examiner asks questions that demand response (What is your job? Or which city have you visited?) are we allowed to change it?
I mean, I do not like cheating. I have never visited any foreign city. But I must extend the answer.
Then what can you advise?
I missed out a question on the speaking test - can I get a band 7?
I had my Ielts speaking test last 23rd of september.
I missed out one question for the second task, can I see get a band score of 7?
What happens if I did not answer the last part of the question?
Hi, i took my ielts speaking yesterday. I am freaking out because i haven't answered the last part of the question. I need a band score of 5... will it be taken against me.. i am so nervous. I also did not look at the interviewers eyes.. oh god can i have 5 for that sense?
Will my score be affected?
Will it affect my score?
Hi there, I did my speaking test this evening and I just have a few questions to ask.
Well, first of all, in general for my speaking test I think I did okay. However, in part 2 speaking I found myself less fluent and lack of ideas to express the examiner. For part 1 and 3 were alright, although there were some hesitation and not many academic words include I managed to go smoothly and be careful of the tenses that I used. Plus, I there were repetition words and also I corrected myself a few times. But as I said before I kinda lacked in ideas but tried to expand my answer though.
Will it affect my score? And I just only want to get 6 or 6.5 in speaking. Well, I'm a bit worried whether I could get the scores that I want.
What should I say if asked to speak about my family in the IELTS Speaking test Part 1?
I am preparing for my IELTS exam by the help of your website. But I am in dilemma about speaking.
As I am a married woman, what should I tell about my family in speaking? If an examiner asks question about the family in part 1, should I talk about my husband's family or my father's family? I am clueless. I would be grateful if you could give your opinion on it.
I am hoping to hear from you soon.
Speaking question about hats
i had my exam few weeks ago, i have been asked by the examiner something like that:
"Is there any special(particular) place in your country where people mostly wear hats".
I know that I need to talk about that topic but there is nowhere in my country not even in the world, as far as i know.
I asked whether caps or berets are included. The
examiner said no, and also interrupted when i tried to say some thing about those.
Now the question is, should we talk about the topic even it is not real. in other words are we expected to talk about the topic in any means even by creating a virtual place like in my subject?
Unfamiliar topics or questions
How do I respond to unfamiliar topics or questions?
