You will be surprised to see how interesting questions people are asking about various things on Google. Although some of them are legitimately necessary questions, most are not. Just like today’s topic- how to answer the IELTS cue card question.
No tutor on earth can give an answer to this question. The closest useful question could have been like this – how to improve speaking for IELTS, or, how can I score better in IELTS speaking, etc.
Anyway, we will answer to the interpretation that this question is asking for a strategy on how one can make the most out of those 2 minutes and achieve a high score in speaking.
Your preparation for those two minutes does not begin only a few days before the exam but long before that. It could be months or years, based on the level of speaking skill you have.
It is better to plan ahead, if possible at least six months ahead of your official registration time. Because, to improve your cue card skills you need to level up your overall speaking skill.
You need to accumulate a lot of information and consume a lot of various contents to improve your overall knowledge of things in the world. You need to go out more, meet more people, and enrich your real life experience.
Trust me, your experience talks in a conversation. Without your experiences, you are nothing but an empty canvas.
So the first step is to get your speaking skill assessed. Then get a tutor to help your practice. So, you can either take a mock test or get a teacher first. Getting a teacher will serve both purposes – two birds with one stone. Then practice with your teacher to improve your skills.
While you practice with your teacher, try to follow the tips below for cue cards.
