Sets of Tongue Twister to Improve your Speaking


The last part of the IELTS is the Speaking test, where you will find yourself having a discussion with a certified examiner. The assessment criteria will be the same with the Writing exams, which will be assessed in four parts – task response, coherence and cohesion, vocabulary, and grammar. Your IELTS score will reflect your proficiency of the English language, but the Speaking test, in particular, will define your command of the language by having an actual interactive conversation.

The test will be 11-14 minutes long, and the discussion will be about real-life situations – like talking about yourself and your family. The examiner will then ask you to speak about a topic, in which case you will need to keep the conversation flowing naturally.

If your oral command of the English language needs work, strengthen the muscles necessary for proper speech with the use of tongue twisters. It may sound crazy, but tongue twisters can greatly help you with your articulation and it’s exactly what you need as training for IELTS!

The International English Language Testing System examination (IELTS) plays an important role in visa applications of non-native English speakers who are applying for work, study, or immigration in English speaking countries. For Filipinos, the IELTS is a requirement that must be completed.

Among the four sections of the IELTS examination, the speaking test makes IELTS examinees anxious and nervous.
