We would like to say thank you so much for assisting me with my working visa application recently. I was so thrilled when you contacted me to advise that a company offered work with them. From then, everything went so quickly. We did all the skills assessment and preparation of my visa, and it was granted less than 6 months. There is nothing I can say, except thank you for helping me achieve my dream in this beautiful country. I would now like to ask for your help again to bring my partner to Australia. Thank you for keeping me updated with the progress and any changes to the rules. I am sure that many people are very happy with your service!

I will be forever grateful to Mbak Indah for taking care of my permanent visa application in Perth. It got approved faster than I thought and I am now happily residing in Australia with the freedom to pursue my dreams. I found ONE derland Consulting through a simple search from the migration agent database. I chose her because I felt I could trust her and because she gave me great advice and handled my application very professionally. She keeps you up to date and it has been a pleasure cooperating with her. I fully recommend her to anyone who is looking for migration consulting services, may it be a study visa, graduate, or permanent visa. You can’t get any better advice and representation than this.

Tips to Pass Speaking Test IELTS for Australian Visa

How I Am Be Able To Pass Speaking Test IELTS for Australian Visa

Do you want to apply for an Australian visa application? Do you know some of the visa applications need IELTS? One of the parts is the speaking test. Now, you must be wondering how to pass Speaking Test IELTS for Australian Visa. If you wish to migrate to Australia via a skilled or working visa, you need to demonstrate that you have an above-average level of speaking skills. 

In the speaking section, everything happens very quickly. Make sure you give your best effort the first time, as you cannot go back to fix your errors in this section. These tips are to prepare you efficiently, speak fluently, and be confident in your responses.

Take A Look At Scoring And Timing

It would be a great idea to really go over the timing of this section of the test as well as, how it is scored. There are currently three parts to the speaking section:

  • The interview is part 1: This interview should last about 4 to 5 minutes and should be relatively easy, it’s mostly an introduction. The examiner will most likely ask you what your name is, where you’re from, how you spend your free time, why you’re studying the English language, etc. In this part it would be a lot easier to just give yes or no responses, but please do your best to give longer answers. The trick here is to give longer responses. For example, “Do you like studying the English language?” Response: “Yes (don’t stop here), I think English is a harder language to learn, but I enjoy the challenge as it is very practical to know.”
  • The long answer is part 2: In this part, you will be given a topic you must speak about uninterrupted for 1 to 2 minutes. This can be really hard for some candidates. Just remember, you will have one minute before you respond to the topic. In this one minute, don’t try to write out your complete answer but just write some notes on the points you can hit. This way it will sound more natural and flow better, as well as have your response mapped out.
  • A discussion is part 3: This can be difficult as well; you have to discuss a topic with the examiner for 3 to 4 minutes. If you wish to make your conversation more unique, see if you can make a point using a personal anecdote.
  • The scoring of this section is a lot easier to understand, there are four sections that are worth the same percentage (for these it’s 25%). These sections are: Pronunciation, Fluency and Coherence, Grammar, and the last section is Vocabulary. A set of balanced skills with get you the highest score.

Try To Be More Fluent, Rather Than Use More Vocabulary

While both carry the same weight overall, it’s so much better to be fluent and fluid, then to spend too much time thinking of more complex words to use. Chances are you can add them in here and there when they come to you. This will give you a much better overall impression, as speaking without pausing can show the examiner you are comfortable with the language.

Try To Avoid Sounding Monotone

You couldn’t be less impressive and more inspiring of yawns, by speaking in a flat monotone voice. It is how beginners of a new language may speak, but even speaking perfectly, a bland tone can end you up sounding less fluent than you really are. All you would need to do to sound more fluent, accomplished, and interesting, is add some range to your tones.

How To Buy Yourself Some More Time

Understanding everything in the exam would be a rare occurrence. Even if you somehow did, you may need some time to formulate your responses. In part 2 there’s no wiggle room for more time, as they give you time in the beginning. You can employ some tactics in parts 1 and 3 though:

  • If the examiner asks, “What was your favorite part of growing up in Tokyo?” Some would advise you to repeat the question back, this can be very unflattering to show your ability to understand a language and can be very obvious as to what you’re trying to do. Instead, you could make a compliment about the nature of the question. This would buy you the same amount of time saying something like, “I’ve never thought of that before, that’s a really interesting question.” Wouldn’t this be better than taking the words right out of the examiner’s mouth? It flows naturally and shows you are considering the question.
  • It’s okay if you don’t understand something, don’t let panic set in. Be honest and show that you can flow naturally to the situation: “I’ve never heard that expression before, would you mind elaborating?” or even “I haven’t come across that word before, could you please explain?” or “My apologies, could you clarify as to what you mean?”

How Much Should You Speak? Let’s Go Over Two Rules.

  • First rule: These are unspoken rules, pertaining to how much you should speak during the speaking section. Speak as much as possible, using a variety of language. You can’t talk too much if the conversation is interesting and lively, only don’t repeat yourself for the sake of talking or talk constantly about unrelated topics.
  • Second rule: If you aren’t the talkative type, don’t worry, just make sure you talk more than the examiner. So if the examiner asks you a one sentence question, try to respond with two sentences, and so on.

No Need For Those Prepared Answers, Throw Them Away

If you have spent the time to have prepared answers to some questions, throw them away. Part of being fluent is speaking on the spot, and the examiner will instantly know if you’re using prepared responses. This will hinder your score as the examiner can not these answers, as they are memorized. The key to this is to have fun using the English language, respond directly to the questions, and be relaxed. When you relax, you can also be more confident in your responses.

Made A Mistake? Here’s What To Do If You Do

It can happen to anyone, the making of a mistake. Even when you’re talking in your native language, the wrong words can come out. It’s what you do with that mistake that is of pertinence. If you can fluently and quickly correct yourself, have at it. Make sure it is the right answer you are correcting yourself with, it will then show the examiner that you knew the right answer, you just misspoke. If not, just keep going in what you were saying. You don’t want to try to correct it and mess that up, turning everything into a disaster.

Vocabulary Help

It can be harder with speaking to use a lot of more complex words, but as before you can’t go back and rewrite. You must already have some at your disposal, to use naturally.

Your opinion is very important in this section; you learn words or phrases that allow you to express yourself in your responses. Just do not use the same phrase repeatedly, learn others, and use them each once if you can. Use phrases such as, “I like” or “I prefer”.

Match Up With The Grammar In The Question

This easy trick can help you stay on track during your responses. Pay close attention to the grammar the examiner uses when they ask you the question. This can really help with verb tenses. For example, as asked by the examiner above, “What was your favorite part of growing up in Toyko?” They used the past tense was, so you would not respond by saying, “My favorite part is…” This will help you avoid simple grammar mistakes.
