You have probably read a lot about what you need to do to get a good score on the IELTS speaking test.  Unfortunately, a lot of this information is hard to understand.  But the British Council has recently published a series of videos that I think really explains these requirements well.  In the IELTS speaking test, you will be given scores in 4 areas:

  • Fluency & Coherence
  • Lexical Range
  • Grammatical Accuracy
  • Pronunciation

To understand exactly what is included (and not included) in each of these categories, watch the videos on the British Council’s Teach IELTS website.
