IELTS Speaking Tip Number 3


Now..a little qualification to IELTS Speaking Tip Number 1 . It is essential to be yourself in a speaking test as previously mentioned, yet at the same time you have to look like you should be taken seriously. So..if you are one those people who likes to dress casually for every occasion then you better invest in some smart clothes for your IELTS exam.

 Now call it unfair, or even superficial, yet the the fact remains that you need to dress to impress. The IELTS speaking test is a formal interview, as I mentioned in my first post. You are introducing yourself to a stranger who knows nothing about you, and you are trying to impress them with your fluency in English.  If you dress smartly and seriously you will be taken more seriously…it is simply human nature.

 Showing concern over your appearance implies that  you also work hard on other things; such as improving your English ability. It also confers respect on the examiner as they invariably  have to dress professionally.

 Now you don’t have to go overboard and buy an expensive tailored suit (though that would certainly impress the examiner!) All you have to do is put some consideration into what you are going to wear on the day of the speaking test. This sounds like common sense, yet I have interviewed numerous candidates who obviously haven’t put  the slightest thought into what they were going to wear! I know unbelievable, yet sadly true.

Remember taking care of how  you present yourself implies that you take care  over other important things in your life as well.
