Produce Better Notes in 60 seconds
The IELTS Speaking Test Part 2 can be one of the hardest parts of the test for a lot of students.
You might be asking yourself: Will I be able to talk for long enough? What if I can’t think of any ideas? What if I just end up repeating myself? While there is no magic solution (apart from practice!) there is reliable technique I’ve been using with my students to help them take on Part 2 more confidently and coherently.
When you start taking notes in the 60 second preparation time, it’s tempting to scribble down everything you know about the topic. Unfortunately, this can lead to unorganised, unhelpful notes that just confuse you when you glance at them while you’re giving your answer. Here’s a strategy that can help: P – D – F
- P stands for ‘Past’
- D stands for ‘Describe’
- F stands for ‘Future’
This means you should start in the past, continue to describe, then finish in the future.
These are the only three things you need to keep in mind to create a coherent, natural and high-scoring IELTS Speaking Test Part 2 answer. Instead of writing down everything you know, write down a grammar-specific sentence in each section. You’ll see 3 examples of this technique in action in the video.
