IELTS Speaking – Three Reasons to Use YASI Website

IELTS speaking

Most of my IELTS students were happy to use Yasi website, which really helped them in efficient preparation for IELTS speaking. Though the site doesn’t have a fancy design, beautiful pictures or exquisite fonts, it has tons of valuable information.

Reason 1

You can find a high-quality extensive database of IELTS speaking topics.

Just click here, and you’ll see all the topics that have ever existed for Part 1 over the last years.

To see Part 2-3, follow this link  - you will land at Page 7 of the topic archive. After exploring its topics, you can go to Page 6, 5 and so on.

Reason 2

Topics are real. All of them were reported by different candidates taking IELTS all over the world. That means that you can prepare amazingly well for tricky questions or challenging topics. Make sure that you follow useful tips in this and this article  and stick to time limits in each part.

Reason 3

Sometimes it’s possible to order “current speaking topics”. That’s a bit of a grey area because IELTS examiners would probably be against such service, but it’s tremendous help for candidates who can focus on 30-40 topics and practice them ideally.

So far, all my students who ordered the service, reported that they really got one of the topics at their exam, maybe with slight variation of questions inside the cue card.

When you start to practice Part 2, you can use my recording for Part 2 here

in order to control your time. Make sure that you always record your answers and then listen to your own recording making mental notes what to improve.

If you need a really high IELTS band like 8 or 9, you can use some software, e.g. GarageBand, and create your own podcasts with questions for Part 1 and 3. Just record the questions first yourself and then use some app to compile the podcast inserting spans of silence after each question (15 seconds in Part 1 and 45 seconds in Part 3). Then you can practice answering real exam questions without reading them and without stopwatch. Again, you can see the examples how it works here  (see Part 1 and Part 3 of any IELTS Speaking practice).

Good luck to you and may you get the highest result possible for your level of English!
