HOW CAN YOU PREPARE FOR IELTS IN A SHORT PERIOD?

Are you one of the students who is preparing for IELTS and is nervous at the moment?

Not an issue anymore. We have always got you back. English is not our native language and is one of the foreign languages we learn to be able to understand and communicate with the world. It is okay to feel nervous while being examined but we will focus on some special techniques which can help you go through all the process smoothly.

Speaking marking criteria

  1. Pronunciation:

It is one of the most important aspects of the test. The examiner is not likely to judge you based on your accents but on the clarity of your speech. You must be able to use intonation. The clarity must be accurate and very sound to listen to.

  1. Fluency:

Do you make many pauses like hmm, ahh, oh, umm… while speaking? THAT IS A BIG NO! Speak freely. Listen to BBC, CNN, etc. channels or listen to phonetics to have a better understanding of words. You don’t need to use hardcore words, but very clear and accurate ones.

  1. Vocabulary:

Never use basic vocabulary over and over again. Don’t rely on lots of ifs and buts. Bring variety to your vocabulary. Learn 3-4 synonyms for every word. Try to structure your sentences in different manners.

  1. Correct use of the word

While the English language has many types while you speak, but focus on the exact spelling. In certain languages people do not make the use of, “ing” and usually pronounce words like ‘doing’ as ‘doin.’ This is not how you are going to pronounce in the IELTS test. The examiner always has his/her eyes on the correct usage of words. This marks for Vocabulary, Pronunciation, and Clarity.

  1. Grammar and Accuracy:

The use of correct tenses and forms of grammar is necessary. This is one of the major areas where candidates lose their marks.

Important Tips:

  • Always write questions that are common or in your mind.
  • Find answers to them
  • Always make sure you get feedback from an expert or someone who checks the exams.
  • Don’t forget the stuff once they are answered. Review them almost thrice a week.
  • Ask yourself the same questions over days and answer without skimming again
  • You can always record yourself to better analyze your preparation
  • You don’t have anyone to talk to? YOU HAVE YOURSELF, YES! Talk to yourself in the mirror. This will help you boost your confidence and help in better pronunciation understanding.
  • Ask an expert to read your answers for you. Listen and look at them carefully while they are reading and pronouncing.
  • Find a native to practice with.
  • The course doesn’t intend to make you memorize things, so try to be very natural.
  • Nervousness can kill the whole preparation. Be confident.
  • You are not a radio or a robot. Don’t speak like that too. Be in your personality and style. Remember that personality matters a lot.
  • Don’t choose to answer in one word, like Yes or No. Always try to elaborate and elucidate.
  • If you have made a mistake, don’t overthink that. Fix it in the next sentence and don’t demonstrate your nervousness.

IELTS stands for International English Language Testing System

The whole idea of penning down this blog is to make things convenient for you at every step. We all know that IELTS consists of 4 parts i.e.

  1. Listening
  2. Reading
  3. Speaking
  4. Writing

This blog concentrates on the reading part. It’s usually hard for non-native speakers to listen or read efficiently. Businefy services are here to assist you with a team of highly qualified members.

The reading part requires almost an hour. The part entails comprehensions in which one is required to read carefully and answer the given questions. Here are some pro-tips before attempting the part:

  1. Reading everything is not necessary

Question-based reading is a unique strategy. Focus on that.

  1. Skim things

The overall readings in 60 minutes are kind of not possible. The best way to cater to this part is to skim and know what is important to your stances and questions.

  1. Learn the skill of scanning

Details are always important apart from reading everything. Pay attention to definite particulars to trace things.

  1. Take note of key-words

You can always find answers quickly by noticing the keywords. One tip is to read the questions first and then read and respond. This helps in configuring and deciphering the required information.

  1. Paraphrase

This helps in comprehending the collocations and synonyms.

  1. Check spellings

Spellings are the most important part while reading and writing. It helps in exact phonetics and pronunciations.

  1. Time-Management

Time management is the key to attempting timer-based tests. Most people are very much clear about what and how to write but fail in managing time. This is the key to acing the tests. It is all a game of mind and time.

  1. Always Attempt

Never leave anything as a choice. Don’t leave things because it doesn’t hurt your parts. Always attempt the given parts, for you never know when luck plays its part.

  1. Abide by the rules

Read the instructions carefully. For the reading part, “READING THE INSTRUCTIONS” is the most crucial part.

  1. Be precise about the word limit

There’s always a lot to write but paraphrasing your words precisely and logically is the main key. This will help one to avoid losing marks.
