engVid quiz

Test your understanding of this English lesson

Test your understanding of the English lesson by answering these questions. You will get the answers and your score at the end of the quiz.
Part three of the speaking module takes about ten minutes.

Part three is completely different from part two.

In part three, you may have to compare the past and present.

If you don't understand a question, you should ask the examiner to repeat it or to clarify.

Should you make eye contact with your examiner?

Which is a better way to study?

Is it a good idea to use modals (may, might, etc.) in part three to get a higher grammar mark? For example: "TV may be too violent for children."

Using "I think" a lot will help you get a high mark on the IELTS.

Which of the following will help you do well?

Using transitions correctly and dividing up your answer into parts ("There are three reasons...", "I believe technology will change in four ways...") will improve your score.

Thursday, July 25th 2013

hello emma, very well done lessons, I find them very useful!
two questions: what about canadian, american and australian accents? Are the definetly wrong?
I’m almost 30 and I am a bit shy when I talk…what can i do the break the ice since I cannot practice with native speakers?
What do you suggest?


Thursday, July 25th 2013

    Ciao, scusa se mi intrometto. To improve your speaking skills you should first of all record your voice while reading something or even better talking without reading. Then Listen at your voice, if it sounds too slow or hard to understand try again, you will notice that you have done better! first time i recorded myself i was like “is this boring voice me?!” then i tried a second and a third time and it went down a storm! (it means it went very well) i was delighted to listen at my voice, of course i still practising x) but if you wish to be more confident in a conversation with a native speaker then you should find someone to talk with, for example an english that is learning italian. You can help each other. I know it is hard. Sometime i use sharedtalk .com but it is unlike you find easly a native english speaker to talk with, because there are few english people and many people that wish to learn english. At least that’s the experience i had on that site but still a worth try.
    Sincerely Michele =)

    Sunday, August 4th 2013

    Sorry Cocinella if I have to talk to you about what you have to do because I suggest that you try to talk to native people but if you can’t do it. You might as well talk to international students as well. Either way, you can correct them and stay humble enough to be corrected by them. Thank you for listening. God bless.
