(1) IELTS speaking Part 1: try to make 2 points in your answers.
Do not make a speech.
You can make your answer to a simple question more interesting:
What are you doing in England?
“Studying.” “I’m studying” “I’m studying Finance”
OK – but, better:
“I’m studying for an MA in Finance at Manchester University – I finish in 2 month’s time.”
“I’m studying for an MA in Finance at Manchester University – I want to work in international banking when I finish.”
(1) Adding a second short piece of information in (a) personal (b) natural (c) shows confidence in the language.
(2) In Part One of IELTS speaking you want to establish that you are comfortable chatting in English.
(3) Even with simple answers it is easy to make mistakes: eg prepositions / collocations / use of natural patterns.
You can practise your answer to this type of question and make sure there are NO mistakes!
(2) Express yourself (give true answers):
(1) What are you doing in England? (if you are in England)
(2) Would you like to go to England? (if you are not in England)
