Before you start practicing for achieving a score of at least 7 in IELTS Speaking, you should first make sure that you fully understand on what grounds your speaking skills are assessed and what elements in speaking contribute to your overall IELTS speaking score.
In IELTS Speaking Test, your speaking skills are evaluated on the four assessment criteria that are all equally weighted:
- Fluency and Coherence – learn cohesive devices for IELTS
- Lexical Resource – read news, books or watch TV series
- Grammatical Range and Accuracy – have a grammar book next to you to dip into every now and then
- Pronunciation – you are not expected to sound like a native speaker; you need to sound clear enough
