What to expect from IELTS speaking

2017-08-28 14:32:28

This presentation is a task-focused lesson plan aimed at making students familiar with questions and strategies in IELTS speaking.

2: Common question stems - use these in combination with slide 3 topics to generate questions with the students in groups. Give some examples first.

4 - 5: Key words activity, students must learn to identify the important words in questions even if they don't understand it in full. Students identify key words and then work out questions from just the key words. Also, it may be necessary to give students some ideas about what they can say if they don't get the question:
Can you say the question again?
can you explain *word* please?

6 - 7 rephrasing: students must think of new ways to say the words and phrases on the slide. This is practice for starting answers by rephrasing the question instead of simply using the same words.

8: How to expand your answer using the question words
Who - when - where - why - how - what.
Start with a simple answer phrase and get students to add more information to it.

The present downloadable teaching material is best suited for high school students and adults at Pre-intermediate (A2) and Intermediate (B1) level. It is aimed at consolidating Questions and short answers and Questions: WH questions (open-ended questions) in English, and can be used for working on your groups' Speaking skills.
