IELTS Speaking Test Strategies to Speak Without Hesitation and Fear
You must be knowing English but do you speak English well? That is the question you need to answer first. There are many candidates who are good at English. They know grammar. They know how to create sentences. They even write much better, perfect sentences in English but when it comes to speaking, they do not make a good impression. What goes wrong? What stops them? Often, it is due to hesitation or the fear which makes it difficult even for the smart candidates to speak well in front of the interviewer
So, how can you overcome hesitation or fear?
Here we have listed down a few simple strategies which will make you fluent in English so that you get through your IELTS Speaking test much more easily.
Use English Daily
Make use of English as much as you can. You do not have to fear the unknown or the unfamiliar. You will have to make use of it whenever you can. Whether you are with your friends or family, make sure that you make use of it. This may feel very scary in the beginning but you do not have to focus on it.
Creating an Alter ego in English
Who do you admire when it comes to speeches? Who is your favorite English movie actor? You can emulate your favorite actor or the people you admire in order to improve your language.
Cramming useful sentences is a necessary evil for the beginners in English
If you are a beginner and you feel less confident in your language then it makes sense to prepare word-groups, phrases, sentences which you can use daily when you are with your friends or family members. The biggest advantage of cramming some highly spoken sentences is that you can say them with no hesitation.
Of course, you will also have to be intelligent enough to learn to make the sentences on your own. For this purpose, you can focus on learning and improving grammar because good grammar is the soul of the language.
Do you know good speakers practice their speech before they speak in front of the public? A good speaker always spends a lot of time in preparing for the speech. This actually boosts up confidence. The key element here is practice. If you are going to face the IELTS test, then it makes sense to get prepared for the interview. The more you practice the better it is for you. You can speak fearlessly and with a lot of confidence.
Lastly, stop being unconfident. Yes, you will have to build confidence in yourself. This will ultimately grow when you will start talking with people around you in English or when you make English a part of your life daily.
