IELTS, the International English Language Testing System, is one of the world’s most popular English language tests for entry into university or higher education where English is the language of communication. In other words, it is your academic passport!
The Speaking test, although relatively short (11-14 minutes), is often the most nerve-wracking module in IELTS because you are face to face with the examiner. Not only that, but you have to listen, process the examiner’s language, and answer the question clearly, using correct grammar structures and with only a minimum of hesitation.
This book is designed to help you to prepare for all these elements of the test in a systematic way. Firstly, you will learn a lot of useful words for dealing with familiar and abstract topics, and you will be encouraged to expand your vocabulary. Having a wide range of vocabulary will give you confidence in the test.
You will also find extensive pronunciation exercises to help you with some of the more problematic sounds of English. Grammar exercises have been chosen specifically so that you are able to answer familiar questions, using appropriate tenses, and to talk about unfamiliar, more abstract issues, using appropriate functions (for example, expressing opinions, comparing, contrasting, analyzing, or speculating).
