IELTS Speaking Popular Words
Under IELTS Speaking, the examiner tests your communication skills and how well you pronounce words related to everyday topics. This is done by answering various questions and speaking words in a limited amount of time. When speaking words make sure you maintain that fluency and do not lag too much. For example – if any word is coming after 3-4 seconds and you take pauses while speaking, your fluency is interrupted. Make sure your vocabulary is passive and not active.
