1.Should I be relaxed and easygoing or serious and formal?
Try to be relaxed. You don't need to sound academic in the speaking interview. Just imagine that you are discussing the interview questions with your friend so that you sound more natural and fluent. Examiners are your friends!
2.Is it OK to give short answers to avoid making too many mistakes?
No. Try to give full, extended, complete answers and sentences. You need to demonstrate as much English as possible in the time given.
3.Will I lose points if the examiner disagrees with my opinion?
No. You are judged on your English, not your opinions. There is no right or wrong opinion.
4.How is my performance assessed?
Yes. As long as you keep talking and use a wide range of English, you can get a high score as this is not an IQ test. Boring or obvious opinions are fine if you can produce a wide and accurate range of language when expressing them.
5. I have a North American accent, is that OK?
Yes. American English is not penalised in any part of the test whether it be pronunciation or spelling.
6.How is my performance assessed?
No. You will receive your IELTS result within 2 weeks but not on the day.
7.What happens if I disagree with the result I was given?
You may ask the IELTS test centre to arrange another IELTS examiner to reevaluate your speaking. This is possible as all interviews are recorded. You may incur an extra expense depending on whether your score changes or not.
8.How is my performance assessed?
In your home country is often thought to be the best place to do the speaking test. However, do keep in mind that all examiners receive exactly the same training around the world which is moderated by a central body. The only justification for why it may be better to do the test in your home country is that you may score higher in pronunciation as it is seen as more subjective; examiners in your home country will be used to the Chinese accent whereas those in England may not.
9.Is there anything I can do if 1 don't understand a question?
Yes. If you don't understand you may ask the examiner to repeat the question at any time during the interview. However, if after repeating you still don't understand, only in Part 3 may you ask the examiner to explain or rephrase a question. In Part 1 the examiner will simply move on to the next question.
假若你不明白间题，可以请口试官再叙述一次。但如果口试官重复后，你还是不理解，只有在Part 3时你才可以请口试官换个说法让你明白问题;在口试的Part 1，口试官会略过该问题而直接进行下一个提问。
10.What happens if I misunderstand the question?
You may lose some points under fluency and coherenceas the examiner may have difficulty following your answer. In Part 3 the examiner may rephrase or explain the question again to give you a second opportunity. This will not happen in Part 1 though, the examiner will move on to the next question.
你可能会在流畅性及连贯性这部分被扣分。在Part 3，口试官有可能会再重述或解释该题，给你第二次机会回答;但是在Part 1时，口试官会直接问你下一个问题。
11.What should I do if I can't think of the right vocabulary?
Keep talking by paraphrasing (explaining the meaning of the word). It's better to say something than nothing. If you simply pause and hope that somehow the word miraculously pops into your head, the examiner will be unable to assess you. In other words, long silences are penalised in each criterion as you are producing no vocabulary, grammar or pronunciation features and showing no fluency.
12.How is my performance assessed?
Preferably not. Although there is no way of knowing if you are telling the truth or not, it's OK to be honest and more importantly you will sound much more natural and fluent if you are. Just remember to use good English. If the examiner asks you if you like your hometown, you don't need to pretend that you do if you don't. It's quite fine to say you hate it as long as you do so using appropriate English. Similarly if the examiner asks you if you have ever had a pet, but you never have, then say so and give a reason why you haven't.
13.How much should I say?
In Part 1 you have 4-5 minutes to answer at least 3 and up to 10 questions which works out to between 20 to 90 seconds per question but do not rely on slow speech to fill up this time. In Part 2 you must speak for I-2 minutes and it is advisable that you speak closer to 2 minutes than 1. The examiner is required to stop you if you speak for longer than 2 minutes for which you will not be penalised. In Part 3 you have 4-5 minutes to answer between 2-6 questions which works out to between 40 to 150 seconds per answer. Try to find a happy medium between these time frames so that you can answer a range of questions as this will produce a wider range of language.
14.Do I need to speak really quickly?
No. Just speak at a steady, constant speed which can balance your fluency and accuracy.
15.Do all examiners have a British accent?
No. Examiners come from a variety of backgrounds andtherefore accents may vary. You may even have a Chinese examiner if they themselves have scored an IELTS 9 on the test.
