IELTS Speaking Test: TIPS AND TRICKS
To begin with tips and tricks for IELTS speaking test, firstly, I would like to share some basics of the IELTS Speaking test. Secondly, the speaking test of IELTS lasts for 11-14 mins. Also, it consists of an introduction (IELTS speaking part-1) section plus three more sections. Thirdly, it doesn’t vary for General and Academic for the test. Above all, the linguistic provocation increases with each part of the test. So, now let’s discuss each part quickly.

Four parts of IELTS Speaking test:-
- Long turn (Cue Cards)
- Discussion or follow-ups
Band distribution of IELTS Speaking Test:-
- Fluency and coherence
- Lexical resources (Diction or vocabulary)
Introduction (IELTS Speaking Part-1)
The introduction will occupy 30 seconds and includes Name, Nationality and ID check. It is the easiest part but here too we have some tricks. As we know, the part occupies only 30 seconds, many of the individuals try to be quick. But, this is where we make a mistake. Firstly, be calm and let examiner asks you want he wants. Don’t be so quick that you amalgamate the whole interview part in the introduction. After tackling the introduction part, here comes the main part Interview.
Interview (IELTS SPEAKING PART-2)
Many of the students fail in this part, but they think that Cue card went wrong. In actual, the coherence and confidence are measured here. In this part many of the aspirants make a error of conveying that information which they have read. But in actual it is considered less effective. Aspirants need to understand that interview is the interaction with the examiner, not the formal job interview. Examiner is asking you regarding your family, so you knows much better aspects of your family, not your book which you are using to prepare yourself. Also try to give brief replies. If you have ever used “BRITISH COUNCIL” for IELTS preparation, you must know have read that, IELTS test is a conversation and the informal style of answering the question is accepted. You do not have to give formal, academic replies to all the questions.
Cue Card (IELTS SPEAKING PART-3)
Now comes the part of Cue cards and discussion (follow-ups). Here is a special trick, which is founded by me, after spending a few months in this field in institutes and students. I named this trick as “CHATUR SINGH TRIPATHI TRICK”. This trick is followed by many of my mates and students and they were able to score 7+ bands in speaking test. So what actually is CHATUR SINGH TRIPATHI?
Chatur Singh Tripathi Trick (FOR IELTS Speaking PART-3)
CHATUR SINGH TRIPATHI in IELTS speaking test is referred to the term ‘loopholes’. While speaking and expressing your Cue card you have to keep a thing in mind; i.e, you have to create some loopholes for your examiners. Like CHATUR SINGH TRIPATHI knows the score of the match before it starts you can also know what exactly examiner is going to ask.
HOW THIS WORKS?
To create some loopholes in your speaking test, the very first thing to keep in mind is to be honest with the answer. Not only in cue cards also in interview questions, this trick plays a vital role. to be honest means, to speak the concept that actually happened or you are ready with. While answering the question each in cue card’s discussion or in interview round, you need to stress on the word that you want the examiner to listen. Also, think about the answer you are going to speak and always create questions in your mind, about what examiner will ask.
To exemplify, If examiner asks about my hobby, I would have said, “To whistle”. After hearing this the examiner would be surprised, and he will have less questions to ask from me. He can only ask ‘how to whistle, ‘types of whistling’ and, ‘the different situations where I would whistle and how?’. In this case I know every possible question that an examiner can ask to me. This is what I call “CHATUR SINGH TRIPATHI”.
In the same way I can create many loopholes in every question, that examiner will ask me. So that the next question to be asked should be of your choice not the examiner’s choice. But the examiner should think that he is going to bowl a delivery which may beat you, but you are ready to play a classic shot.
Follow-ups (IELTS SPEAKING PART-4)
In this final section of IELTS Speaking test. It lasts between4-5 minutes. Here, firstly, the examiner will engage you in a 2-way discussion based on the topic in Part-2. The examiner is likely to ask you questions based on your experience or opinion of the subject. To be more impressive in this part of IELTS speaking test, one should be very honest and real with the cue card. Then only, the examiner will be trapped in the Chatur Singh Tripathi trick.
BUILDING CONFIDENCE FOR IELTS SPEAKING TEST
The another vital role is of “gestures”. Have you ever thought which is most important part of human body in a face-to-face interaction? Our “hands”. So, while you are interacting with your examiner, your hand movement, your smile, and body language are the three aspects those matters a lot. These three, shows your confidence. Whether you are comfortable in front of examiner or not. Keep in mind that while interacting, more than your head movement your hand movement matters. Your easiness in speaking will be determined by these aspects. Follow this and you will definitely hit 7+ bands.
I don’t think I need to remind you of the thing of scoring 7+ bands if you have read this skill carefully. Show your reaction below in comment box for “CHATUR SINGH TRIPATHI TRICK”.
