IELTS Speaking Advice: record, transcribe, analyse


Here are some steps that you could follow when practising for the speaking test:

  1. Choose a real speaking test from one of the Cambridge books.
  2. Record yourself answering one or all of the parts of the test.
  3. Listen to the recording and transcribe it (write down everything you said).
  4. Analyse the transcript. How could your answers be improved?
  5. Take some time to prepare better answers for the same questions.
  6. Try the same questions again! Record yourself, transcribe and analyse.
  7. Repeat the process a few times until you are happy.

Imagine if you did this kind of hard work every day for a month. I'm sure you'd be more confident and better prepared than you are now.
