Sometimes i feel nervous to talk clearly and fluently to the examiners,even i may have prepared for that for a long time,,so how can i improve my spoken English? And is there any better and more effective ways to enlarge my vocabulary?

Kishore:   It is natural to be nervous in this situation. You need to develop your confidence, and this confidence will come from practising your English speaking and communication. Preparation is important but it needs to be the right type of preparation. This also applies to enlarging your vocabulary - I'd suggest these steps: when you learn new vocabulary do not just learn a translation, thibk about all the other elements you need to be able to use this vocabulary (eg the pronunication, the grammar/part of speech, the collocation ie which words this goes with, any synonyms or antonyms etc); read/listen to English as widely as possible, this will help you pick up new vocabulary in context; regularly brainstorm vocabulary in themes or topics like travel, feelings etc - it is always easier to remember and use new vocabulary if you learn/remember this in relation to a subject or theme.

hi.Mr.Roy.Is it always neccesary to give reasons for you answers in speaking?

Kishore:   Good question. This depends on the part of the test, but in general it is useful to give reasons for your answers, it helps you extend your answers. This is less important in Part 1, more important in Part 3, and sometimes relevant in Part 2 (usually included in the bullet points if this is so). Doing this also allows you to demonstrate your signposting skills - these are very important for coherence - such as "I think this is due to the fact that ......."

I always can not finish reading test in the given time because I read all passage before answer questions.I make more mistakes if I read part of the passage. Shall I change my reading method?

Kishore:   I'd suggest you change your reading method, yes. It takes too much time to read the whole passage first before answering questions. it is better to identify and read the topic sentences first - this will give you an idea of the theme of each paragraph. The topic sentence is usually the first sentence in a paragraph (75% of time) or the last sentence in the paragraph. Then analyse the questions carefully, look for key words, and guess where you will find the answers. Do not start reading from the beginning of the passage. You should have an idea of which paragraph you will find the specific answer. Don’t worry if you do not understand all the words – you may not need to understand everything.

I felt too nervous to talk naturally and fluently as usual when I meet native speaker in speaking test because I am not confident.Could you give me advice?Thanks

Kishore:   This is understandable. It is not easy speaking in a foreign language. The best way to develop confidence is through practice. Remember you can practice speaking, even by yourself, on as many different topics as possible. Talk for one minute, then make it 2 minutes, then increase again and again. Also, make sure you learn the right aspects of speaking, see these videos to give you a comprehensive insight: http://www.chinaielts.org/guide/band_descriptors_speaking.shtml

In writting task 2, question like "What are the advantages and disadvantages relates to this topic", do you have to state your own opinion in the essay?? Thanks

Kishore:   Simple answer - yes, you are expected to state your opinion. For example, you could say that, in your opinion, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages, or the opposite, or that they two are equal.

hi, kishore,nice to meet you here.I just graduated from high school and i want to go abroad for futher study.I stareted perparing the IELTS Test these days.My targer is to get a band of 7 to 8.Can you give me some advice on improving my speaking and writing please?It's hard to find opportunities to practice my spoken English in our university .How can i make progress in the two aspects with a relatively tight schdule? I feel it difficult to strike a balance between my regular courses and IELTS Test preparation.Do you have any suggestions?I also need some advice on expanding my range of vocabulary.

The first time I took part in the exam,I got 6 in written work.But the second time I got5.5 in writing.I don't know why,because the method I prepare it is the same as the first time.I want to know what I should do and how I take exercise now to prepare my third time exam in October 26.

Kishore:   Hi. The slight difference in those writing scores can happen - there could be any number of reasons, perhaps your ideas and arguments were not quite as strong in the second exam, perhaps you made a few more grammatical or vocabulary-related mistakes. I cannot say for sure. In terms of preparation, I suggest you look through all the videos here to understand precisely what is expected in the writing test, and also learn the tips that are suggested ?http://www.iqiyi.com/v_19rrhtfbv4.html. Also look at the writing section on Road to IELTS where you will have the chance to practice some techniques. Good luck!

I am very confused about how to use "-"symbol. For example, "low-risk investment". Will I loose mark if I write "low risk investment "?

Kishore:   You would not lose any marks for this specific example. It is difficult to generalise so I cannot say this will always happen in all cases.

Hello, I want to know in the Task 1 of the Writing (map), should I describe the position of every buiding and all changes that pictures give ?

Colin:   Hello! You are usually asked to summarise the main features/changes and make comparisons where relevant. So no, you don't have to describe positions of every building. There are examples and more advice about this task type in our preparation Road to IELTS http://www.chinaielts.org/guide/road_to_ielts.shtml

Hello, Colin,nice to meet you and waiting for your reply,thanks.I usually feel confused about cohesive problems in writing .I know Chinese people's essays sometimes seem to be incoherent.But i don't know how to improve coherency.I mean it seems that English essays usually focus on more details,but Chinese one is not.When i write some details about a problem,i usually go astray that is writing to much superfluous things.Anyway,i want to know how to write a good essay with proper details,not too much details but express my thought in proper way(logical and coherent).Thank you.

Colin:   hello thanks for your question. A good writer or a good English teacher will be able to help your specific situation. Ask them to read for your message and idea - this will help you know if your writing is coherent or not. One thing that many candidates do that affects coherence is not spending time planning their writing. Make you are doing. Have a look at one of our videos which helps with that http://www.chinaielts.org/guide/suggestion_professional/51886.shtml Hope that helps

I feel nervous to speak out,however I prepared,and tend to forget what I have prepared.What should I do?And I feel it hard to improve my accent,how to practice?Thank you very much.

Colin:   hello... keep going! you're doing a great job I'm sure. Some people I know have similar challenges. Sometimes it's because they over-prepare... they rehearse exactly what they are going to say and in the end they suffer from performance anxiety. Remember that spoken language is filled with pauses, hesitations, stops and restarts. IELTS knows this and accepts that these are natural things and are acceptable. A good teacher will be able to give you feedback and guidance on your pronunciation. Keep up the good work

i want to how to arrange the time of the reading part, i always spends a little more than one hour, not too much, just five minutes

Colin:   well done for being able to achieve that already! Remember two things: 1) in the exam you will have to stop when they say stop. Don't risk trying to finish 2) you are given points for each correct answer - you don't lose points. You are not given bonus marks for completing every question in the paper. Keep going - sounds like you are on the right path
