IELTS Energy 383: Do You Stammer and Stop on the Speaking Test?

stammer stop speaking testToday we answer a listener’s question about stammering and stopping on the IELTS Speaking Exam.

In the speaking module I stammer a lot and most often run out of things to say. I cannot speak in the rhythmic way that is required. I am practicing a lot but haven’t been able to reach to the satisfactory level yet.

I stammer a lot…

Stammering is when you stumble on your words, or stutter.

This can happen because of nerves, but it can also happen because you just haven’t practiced speaking English enough.

If you stutter, it will lower your Fluency and Coherence score!

To help you get over this, you should sit down for 10 minutes a day and read out loud. You can read from newspapers, novels, anything!

In this way, you will take away your worries about vocabulary, grammar and ideas, and simply practice getting the words out in a smooth way.

I cannot speak in the rhythmic way that is required…

Pronunciation is key to getting high scores!

Remember, using emotion in your voice is more important for your score than pronouncing every sound correctly.

To improve here, try watching YouTube clips, listen for 10 seconds, and then pause and try to speak exactly like the native speaker in the clip.
