Understanding Section One of IELTS Speaking Test

BY almio harjanto ON March 29, 2017 
Knowing the types of questions in IELTS Speaking Test helps us a lot to demonstrate our ability as required. In this article, we will see what is expected of us to perform when the examiner asks the questions in Part One of IELTS Speaking test.
The following are the types of questions that ask your ability in typical areas and sample questions as well as answers. I am bringing up Sport as example topic since it is quite popular and many enjoy talking about it.

1.    Identifying question:
What kind of exercise do you enjoy?
è I am really keen on running because it’s quite easy, since you don’t need fancy equipment and it doesn’t require specific time to do it.
2.       Expressing an opinion:
Is it important to exercise regularly?
è Yes, it is. Doing this on schedule will keep our mind and physique healthy and fit especially in order to do our routines every day.
3.    Comparing
Do you think people are exercising more these days compared to 50 years ago?
èNo, I don’t think so. Nowadays, there are more activities to do as responsibilities due to the ever expanding varieties of aspects of life. These people are so banded with their duties that that have to sacrifice workouts.
4.    Describing
Can you tell me what the facilities in your sport center look like?
èYes, I have the impression that all equipment installed are of well-known brands and technologically quite advanced
5.    Expressing preferences
Is it better if you exercise alone or with a partner?
èI can see that since there are more attractive activities to partake or at least issues to share about, I would say doing workouts with a partner is the best.

There are no in-depth answers on this stage of interview but we can extend the answer with some long sentences. To get high IELTS Test Score, make sure you are familiar with vocabularies related to the topicsandknow the verb tense. For example, “I provide my own racket and shuttlecockanytime I go for my scheduled practice.” This response uses essential terms that are related to badminton. “What exercise do you enjoy?” This question calls for the usage of Present Tense.

In our IELTS Preparation course we heavily emphasize these types in our classes. We alsoexpose them to various topics that are common to be tested in IELTS Test.

How Long Should You Write?

IELTS Writing Test consists of two tasks. In Task 1, you must summarise and compare information from a graph, chart, table, diagram, or a combination of these, and Task 2 is a topic on which you have to write an essay. Task 1 tests your ability to analyse data objectively without giving an opinion, whereas Task 2 usually requires a subjective piece of writing on a fairly general topic. In addition, it is worth noting that the exam is not testing knowledge of English language, but rather competence in using English.

In the exam, the minimum word limit for Task 1 is 150 words and you need to spend about 20 minutes on this task. Task 2 must be at least 250 words, on which you need to spend about 40 minutes. There is no maximum word limit for both tasks. Many candidates frequently exceed the minimum amounts by a very wide margin, which creates several problems. Rather than concentrating on producing a good essay, candidates write beyond what is necessary, thinking that there are extra marks for writing more. This is usually not the case.

It is very important that you try to keep the word limits, and perhaps write just a little more. You could write between 150 and 170 words for Task 1 and 250 and 280 for Task 2. If you write too few words, you will lose marks. If you write less than the limit of 150 words for Task 1 and 250 words for Task 2, you will lose marks too.

How to tell we wrote enough to pass the minimum word count? While practising for the IELTS Test, count the number of words you write per line and then work out how many lines you need to reach the 150/250 word limit. It might be worth trying to draw a line to mark the word limits when you are practising. This will help you to keep to the limits and help you to focus on where you are going and what you are aiming for.

Another important reason for writing just a little more than the word limit is to give yourself enough time to check what you have written. During the actual exam, for example Task 2, you should spend 5-6 minutes analysing the question, about 30 minutes writing your essay, and 4-5 minutes checking your essay for mistakes.

What should you do first? Task 1 or Task 2? From the psychological point of view, it is probably wise to do Task 1 first as it gives you a sense of accomplishment when you have finished it. However, note that the value of the marks given to each task is different. There are twice as many marks for Task 2 as for Task 1. The marks are combined to produce one Band Score from 1 to 9 for the whole test.
