Description

This course is designed for anyone who wants to take the IELTS exam and achieve a satisfactory score in the speaking test.

This course will provide complete knowledge and practical examples so that you can have effective strategies to approach the often-dreaded speaking test with confidence. You will be assured that you will be well-prepared for questions on a variety of topics and you will know how exactly you should respond and tackle questions in your test.

Section 1 will give you full information on how the speaking test is structured and marked. You will learn how to achieve a better score in different parts of the test through detailed explanations and clear examples.

In Section 2, you find out what expressions you should use in different contexts of your speaking test. For example, you’ll learn what to say when you have nothing to say, how to fill silence during your test and how to stall for time.

The third section is all about intelligible pronunciation. Typical pronunciation mistakes will be discussed and exemplified and you’ll learn how to avoid them.

Finally, the last section will be a sneak peek of a real IELTS exam. You’ll watch how a candidate responds to questions of different topics in part 1,2, and 3 and see what vocabulary, idioms and expressions are used to form a good answer.

I've been teaching English since 2001. I've taught numerous students from different backgrounds and helped them make improvements in their English proficiency. I believe teaching is my thing and it enriches my life as well as others. I constantly develop myself to be a better teacher and I care about my students and their progress.

In my former career, I worked as a high school teacher, an interpreter in many events including IDP Australia education fairs, and academic staff at the University of Sydney. 

In my spare time, I love playing music, cooking delicious dishes, baking cakes and reading novels.
