Getting to know IELTS Listening Test

IELTS Listening test is the same for both Academic and General Training modules. It lasts approximately 30 minutes with four separate sections. At the end, you will be given 10 minutes to write your answer onto your answering sheet.

The listening test features a number of questions types. Knowing how to do these different questions is important to achieve well on the test. One of the question types is multiple-choice questions. You will be given a question and you have to choose one out of three possible answers or two answers out of five choices. The first thing you need to do is look through the questions within the 30 seconds given before you hear the audio. The correct answer can only be selected through careful listening.


Omit any obvious incorrect answers. Mark any key words that you believe would be a possible answer. Check for words that might change the meaning. Do not answer the question based on your personal knowledge or opinion. Listening to a word or phrase from the recording does not necessarily means it’s the correct answer. There would be statements that are quite similar to the correct answer to distract you. So concentrate! Even after you have heard the answer, keep listening, as the speakers may change their mind or add other information.

Improving Vocabulary Skill


Vocabulary plays a significant role in achieving higher IELTS Test score, as it is very useful for all bands being tested. Particularly for IELTS Writing and IELTS Speaking, the more vocabulary we know how to use and to apply, the broader in content the discussion we can write and the more fluent the explanation we can speak.

Even though we are not going to be able to memorize all English words, the subject is still important for us to master the IELTS. That is why we need to focus on certain vocabulary and classify the right words, which can help us improving the score, into different topics.

Here are some general suggestions to improve your vocabulary skill for IELTS:
·         List a new word to a notebook in terms of various topics (with its translations or definitions)
·         Write the words and definitions on a small piece of paper (try to write the new word on the front side and its definition on the back side, so that you can only turn the note back when you forget its meaning)
·         Speak the new words out repeatedly; if you don’t know how to pronounce them, you can use the help from the online dictionary
·         Make associations (in pictures or with other words)
·         Have somebody test you about the vocabulary 
·         Utilize them for practicing your IELTS Writing or IELTS Speaking

As it is crucial to actually practice the vocabulary in writings or talks, we need to have the facility to help the attempt. IELTSCourse is definitely one of the better possibilities as we here in IELTSJakarta always try to provide the best efforts to ensure people achieving their needed score through IELTS Course carried out by SpecTa Education. Practice makes perfect!

If the examiner offers to shake your hand, return his or her handshake firmly.
Do not shake hands with the examiner as if your extended hand were a cold wet fish.
Answer the questions you are asked clearly and in some detail (using at least two or three sentences).
Do not cut the interview questions short with one-word or very short answers.
Show that you are in control by talking freely about yourself and your past.
Do not wait for another question -  the examiner wants you to answer each question in full.
Make sure you have practiced well enough before the test so that the past tenses you use are accurately formed and appropriate.
Do not be afraid to correct yourself if you make a grammatical mistake, but fluency is just as important. Your grammar practice should take place in the classroom or at home.

How to write an overview on Ielts Writing Task 1

To achieve a high score on Academic Writing Ielts Task 1, you need to have a good overview which shows that you can identify the most important information from the given chart, graph, table, process or map.

What is an overview?

It is simply a summary of the main or most important thing. You do this by picking out several of the most significant things that you can see visually and write them in general sentences. You are just looking for something that describes what is happening overall which covers the main changes that took over the whole period without looking closely at the data.

To select the correct features, you need to understand that there are two different kinds of charts and graphs.
                First, the charts that show data over a period of time.
                Second, the charts which show data at just one point in time.

There are also things that you have to pay attention to. On describing a graph over time you will need to use the language of change. On writing an overview of tables, you have to find the patterns under the horizontal and vertical headings.

To obtained a 5 score for task achievement, you must write the overview. When you manage to write a clear overview, you might get 7 for this part of the test. The overview must be written on the second paragraph

Fillers in IELTS Speaking

IELTS Speaking requires every participant to be able to speak fluently without hindrance, though most of the time what happens is those participants might find such requirement to be troublesome due to several aspects. Some of those aspects that might hinder anyone from speaking fluently are different native language, the lack of English training skills, nervousness, anxiety, fear of public speaking, uncommon environment, and new people and acquaintances who we haven’t really gotten to know yet. Those elements are quire general in terms of being an obstacle against a participant in speaking as excellent as they could. Furthermore, those elements directly cause people to speak with natural fillers without the correct fluency which is needed to obtain amazing score in IELTS Speaking Test.

Fillers are the type of words or sounds when people utter in situations such as, when they forget what they want to say, when they get confused by their own speech and when their nervousness attack them from within while they are being interviewed. Some people that are unfamiliar with IELTS might find the word “Fillers” to be confusing and to make it easier to understand, I’d like to inform some examples of fillers and they are hmm, um, like, you know, totally, uhh, and ok so. 

Those filler words are often uttered by participants who have trouble in speaking fluently and it is not their fault to utter those words, because fluency is not given, it is earned through training, habit and discipline. The IELTS Preparation program in SpecTa Education actually provides and teaches potential participants the key skills in mastering English speaking fluency while naturally decreasing their anxiety and nervousness. Therefore, the fluency that is taught to participants will be applied in their speaking skills on a day-to-day basis while maintaining their calmness.
