IELTS introduction IELTS important information


Of course this comes in every candidate’s mind that what is important to do in IELTS. Remember always, whenever you ask what is important in IELTS, it is just like that as one asks what is important in English Language. As it is already mentioned that IELTS has FOUE modules so just fix your attention in improving these four basic skills of English Language. Overall what you need is;

1. Fluency

2. Proper grammatical use

3. Pronunciation

4. Vocabulary

5. Confidence

6. Logical thinking

Fluency

As it is already explained that IELTS is the English Language Testing System, the one that is universally acknowledged and recommended on the larger scale than any other test in the world. Fluency is the major thing in any language. Unless you are fluent you just can’t prove to have any skill. Fluency works most of course in the interview. The interview has particular purpose. At the start of the interview examiner ask just very simple routine matters which aims to make you feel at home with no any stress or nervousness. In fact interview is a friendly matter a thing to be assessed is your fluency, logical thinking and confidence so it’s far better to just be relaxed and don’t stuff your mind with an obsession that you are being examined.

Once you are settled down you are asked about any general thing that relates to everyone’s routine life. Discussion may get started on various such things like; society, female segregation, deforestation, scientific breakthroughs, health, education, music, etc. It means that they are going to check your language skill not your practical knowledge about things, so no any such specifications. You are not supposed to discuss any matter which is not of the general concern and give in-depth analysis of anything. The key to this part of interview is just to be relaxed and think logically.

Once you get started you are given a prompt card with any topic written on it and you have to speak for one to two minutes on that. You are also given a paper to make your own notes before you start speaking. It’s better to make few notes and then get started. Once you are done examiners begins asking questions about your topic.

What does examiner assess?

The examiner in the interview tries to assess your following abilities.

1. The acceptability of your language

2. Grammar

3. Your thinking and responding ability

4. Pronunciation

5. Your opinions

The use of grammar

Proper use of grammar is of course very important. Once you used a wrong grammar it spoils your image. Good English does not altogether mean using complicated structures, but the one you can easily use. So it is important on your part to have good practical knowledge about the grammar. Examiner doesn’t ask any direct question on grammar. They just want you to speak because speaking is the only way to tell how good you are in grammar. The modern analyses that indicate the fluency of your language are prescriptive in spirit, in a sense that the more you use the language and make mistakes the more you acquire you skill in that language. So it is good that you remain close to English language by reading English newspapers and books. The more you get close to it the more proficient you will be. The mere grammar makes many people hesitate in speaking because they don’t get their ears use to with English. That means you must have practical knowledge of English grammar.

Logical thinking

Apart from grammar one another important thing is whether or not you are thinking logically, because meanings are more important than mere accurate grammar. For example if I say “The cat was barking” you will laugh at this blunder whereas there is nothing wrong in the grammar of the sentence. What is wrong is its being entirely illogical. Similarly in a sentence that says “I died yesterday”. So it is very important that you must have logical mind don’t say anything which indicate your wavering mind and opinion.

Confidence

Confidence is the root of all learning. Since learning demands practical demonstration, and you can well thrive in it if you are confident. Confidence is fed by the practical skills in language which in turn give you a power to make you convincing and dominant figure with reasonable mind. You must be able to support you arguments by thinking with free mind. It is never essential to give answer readily which doesn’t matter. Just have a balanced approach about anything with is asked.

Pronunciation

Pronunciation too is one of the most important things in IELTS. If you cannot pronounce well, you won’t make your examiner in your favor. It doesn’t matter whether you use English or American pronunciation or even the spellings but this is important that whatever pronunciation you use you must stick to it rather mixing them. internationali and Indian people no doubt are considered to be the better English speakers than Middle East and many other non English parts of the world. Still most of the people make fatal mistakes in pronouncing words. Such as immediately, coup, coupon, pizza etc. They in most of times don’t know the plurals like data and bacteria etc and do apply the pronunciation of a noun to the adjective like photograph and photographer, philosophy and philosophical, psychology and psychological etc. All these things need practice in IPAs which you will find in any good dictionary. In Oxford Advanced Learners they are explained on the starting pages that shall give you the whole idea how to pronounce any word.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary of course is one of the major things in any language in the world. Every idea needs to be expressed and how can one do it with no storehouse of words to give that idea an expression. You need to improve your vocabulary and this can be achieved well by giving yourself maximum exposure to English language. You must read English books and listen to English news, movies and programmes. Vocabulary is not only feeding words to your memory rather you must know how to use them. It is better that you get acquainted with idiomatic expression, slangs, formal and informal words and phrases. This too is not enough that you have a knowledge of certain expressions, words or phrases, rather those words and phrases must be the part of you active vocabulary that means you should be used to uttering those words and expressions in your routine language. If I use “for example” every time when I mean to say it instead of “for instance” although I know what “for instance” means, this shows that “for example” is the part of my active vocabulary and “for instance” is my passive vocabulary. When we stop developing our language with new expressions this makes our language stop growing and become boring and less attractive. So it is always advisable that you make every good expression a part of you active vocabulary to make your language more acceptable and agreeable. Try to be near to English and make this your habit. More you listen to it your pronunciation and vocabulary will go on increasing.
