If the examiner offers to shake your hand, return his or her handshake firmly.

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.

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.

HOW TO MEMORIZE WHAT YOU READ

Reading has been one challenging part of IELTS Test because it contains not only many unfamiliar words but also complicated sentence structures. This, though, adds up the perplexity of the band especially when having to solve the riddles in the question side that comes in several types.
In IELTSJakarta we provide materials from various sources to supplement our IELTSPreparation participants that mostly are comprised of individuals with distinct likeness to certain topics and ease inclination of difficulty levels.
IELTS Reading’s one key comprehending point is remembering details in the passage so IELTS Test takers do not have to go back and forth sections of paragraphs and questions.
Here are some recommended ways, which come in handy so long as practised recursively, to easily memorize what you read.
1.       Make prediction.
As you read do this. Making a prediction is a way of using clues from a reading passage, as well as things you already know, to make a good guess about what might happen next. Predicting outcomes is the same as making your best guess about what will happen next.  Read the title, and then make a prediction about what you will be reading.Clues are often in the facts and details in a reading passage such as time, place, names, numbers, characters, and many others.Clues are also often presented in any pictures included with the passage as they often show something that has happened or is happening or will happen soon.
2.       Underline keywords or phrases.
This forces you to decide what's important in what you are reading and how ideas are related. As itcondenses and filters substantial information that need to, thus can easily be stored in memory, the information will be able to be recalled effortlessly.This also stimulates mind as to focus and thus arouses curiosity and molds interest. By putting more concentration on the article, you will actively rather than passively be involved in the reading.
3.       Focus on understanding not memorization
To further make memory of the reading materials last even longer, when dipped in the reading focus on understanding should take place. This way, the texts will be more impressive than just knowing the word(s) and recalling them when needed. Understanding also means associating facts with the existing background knowledge so at any time the information is called for, it is there. Association can also translate the words to other commonly used expressions that are written in either the questions or passages.
To say it briefly, tackling IELTS Reading means remembering the words in the provided passages as to handle the given questions easily. You need to put these skills into application in your IELTS Preparation classes so when dealing with the real IELTS Test, you will find reading section as a piece of cake.

3 Ways for Producing Consistent Written Content


There are several methods to make our writing easy and comfortable to read especially to the examiner of IELTS Test. At every IELTS Course standards of writing styles are simplified. The following are three of many guidelines for simplifying how your IELTS Writing can bring forth colossal IELTS Test result.

1. Minimize Personal Style
“Personal style” refers to treatment of specialized terminology and treatment of spelling, capitalization, numbers, or punctuation that differs from the norm. This individual writing habit should be dropped and or otherwise rectified. Some instances of house styles are as follows: spelling a word differently (for example, writing archeology instead ofarchaeology), capitalizing generic words (“The Company is dedicated to excellence”), using a numeral rather than spelling the number out (“We have 5 guiding principles”), or going against custom in formatting punctuation (for example, employing single quotation marks instead of double quotation marks).

2. Always Use the Serial Comma
Serial commas are often omitted in many publications especially those of journalistic-styled articles in magazines and/or newspapers. A serial comma is the last comma in a list such as “apples, oranges, and pears.” Deleting this punctuation will certainly complicate matters particularly when a list contains an element that includes a conjunction: “apples, oranges and tangerines and pears.” The sentence organization is unclear thus compromised. To make it clear and simple, always include a serial comma: “apples, oranges and tangerines, and pears.”

3. Capitalize Only When Necessary
Capitalizing comes only when there are proper names, and job titles before names. Generic abbreviations of entity names (“the company,” “the board,” “the department”) and references to concepts (“human resources”) are not proper names (though “Human Resources” is correct as the name of a specific department). Capitalization rules about art movements, medical and scientific terminology, geological and historical eras, and other scientific or cultural phenomena can seem (and sometimes are) arbitrary, so double-check reliable editorial resources.
Make sure your IELTS Preparation contains these three IELTS Writing techniques to assure your score as satisfactory as it is expected to be.
