EngVarta is an English-speaking & Practice platform and here you get connected to live English Experts, who will help you to get prepared for the Speaking test of your IELTS Exam.
So let’s explore the format of the IELTS speaking test.
Test Format – Speaking (11-14 minutes)
The Speaking component assesses your use of spoken English and takes between 11 and 14 minutes to complete. Every test is recorded. The Speaking component is delivered in such a way that it does not allow people to rehearse set responses beforehand.
Part 1: The examiner will ask you general questions about yourself and a range of familiar topics, such as home, family, work, studies, and interests. This part lasts for about 4 to 5 minutes.
Part 2: You will be given a card which asks you to talk about a particular topic. You will have 1 minute to prepare before speaking for up to 2 minutes. The examiner will then ask one or two questions on the same topic to finish this part of the test.
Part 3: You will be asked further questions related to the topic in Part 2. These questions will give you the opportunity to discuss more abstract ideas and issues. This part of the test lasts for about 4 to 5 minutes.

Here at EngVarta, you’ll get an assignment after every session. You need to prepare yourself for the assigned topic and you’ll be asked to speak on that topic for about 4 to 5 minutes in your next session. After that, the expert is going to give you a topic on the spot to speak. The idea is to make you spontaneous when it comes to expressing yourself on new topics.
During the session, if you get stuck - or your grammar is wrong or your pronunciation is off then the experts will guide you. They will also help you to improve your sentence structure and help you to pick better vocabulary whenever you require.
All the sessions are recorded here - now what you need to do is just listen to your session recording & wherever the expert corrected you during the session, just repeat the correct version 4 to 5 times and your chances of making the same mistakes will be reduced.
Now one thing you must make sure is that, do not hold yourself back from speaking just because you might make mistakes. Here at EngVarta, we encourage you to make as many mistakes as you can so that the experts can fix those for you and you can improve.
