IELTS Speaking: Speech, Communication and Language

Part 1 (IELTS)

Yes, I’m taking an intensive course at a lcoal private language school. I attend classes three times a week

Absolutely, I am always keen on mastering some new languages such as English, French. You know, if I am bilingual or multilingual, I can roam round other parts of the world with great ease and my whole journey will be transformed miraculously. 

Well,  my mother tongue is […..]. I’ve always wanted to learn Portuguese which is predominantly spoken in some parts of the world, but I don’t have enough time yet.

I’m actually studying two languages at the moment and find it so challenging, yet intriguing that everyone should try at least once. Since English is not my mother tongue, it’s the very first foreign language I’ve attempted to learn because of its widespread use and numerous benefits that come along. It’s the most spoken language for non-native speakers around the globe and is one of the most critical criteria companies look for when recruiting an employee, or at least that’s a reality in my country.

Absolutely. Learning languages, especially English, allows us to be able to communicate with others. It also helps us study more effectively, since we can search for almost everything on the Internet in English.

I think the most effective way to learn a language is to practice more with a native speaker. By doing this, you can improve both listening and oral skills simultaneously, you will be fluent in this language. Besides, I also do general readings in my spare time and keep a journal in English. 

I haven’t thought of it, but yes, I am quite confident that I can manage to learn 2 at once. I reckon that the most difficult thing to acquire 2 languages is to manage my time efficiently. Therefore, it’s more than worth it to plan out exactly how I am going to divide my time between the two languages I tackle. 

In my opinion, every single language is difficult to learn, and English is not an exception. I mean, it might be easy to learn grammar and vocabulary, but it takes quite a long time to practice using the language fluently.

I think it’s obviously in their best interest to pick up a few basic words or phrases in a local language. Firstly, it is an interesting experience to try to communicate with the locals in their mother tongue. You may not get the words right, but that’s where the fun lies. Hence, people will find you more approachable and charismatic because of your efforts and sense of humor. Besides, since language is an integral part of any culture, you can develop a cultural sensitivity while studying their very means of communication

Part 2 (IELTS)
