devonrey ferrer says:

Actually there is no shortcuts… The secret is practice, practice and practice.. English is a skill, and skills are learnt through constant practice. Read more current news particularly the editorial page, and do not forget to time yourself.

You think so? I wonder why thousands of people watch my videos and why this video has 97% likes and only 03% dislike!

Buzz Duzz says:

Its 30th Aug 2012. i’ve given my Ielts speaking test! test was easy but the appearance of Examiner was not good. she was a young lady& wear a open shirt, you can now understand a 24 year old candidate & 28 year old examiner with a dress like that? how much should i have to obtain then? 3 or 4 ?

Syed Mahmood says:

Hopefully I’ll post some videos about IELTS Reading soon IA

@Munwar H

The first time I took IELTS in British Council Dhaka in 2009 and achieved an Average Band score of 7.5.

Then I moved to London in 2010 and attempted IELTS again for the second time (because the test result has a 2 year validity period) at the BITE centre in 2011.

This time I got 8.5 in Listening, 9.0 in Reading, 7.5 in Writing and 8.0 in Speaking. Overall 8.5.

@Shehzadi Uhch
Please don’t comment without understanding the context. I know Bimal. He is always in touch with me. So, I did not need to give an elaborate answer here on youtube.

don’t act as if ur a star.. he replied to u with love and encouragement, n u sed it took time.. :/

marianafaf says:

You speak really nicely. I am doing the test in a few weeks and I am trying to practice but It gets hard if you don’t have so many people to talk to.

I have to get 6.5 overall. I am practicing with a lot of tests (original Cambridge ones) and they are going pretty well I think.

I wish I get the score I want :P or higher

Thanks for the video.

Syed Mahmood says:

It took time :)

Syed Mahmood says:

All the best. I hope you get the score you are aiming at. Let me know if you do :)

Syed Mahmood says:

You are welcome

rumee01 says:

Thanks Syed :)
Now I got the pattern of speaking test which hopefully will help me to prepare myself.

athulabar1 says:

Dear Syed,
Actually, this video is very useful because you are just explaining your own experiences as an individual who speaks English as a secondary language. It seems that you are actually very fluent in managing English language, and please let me know about how you improved your speaking skills to such a remarkable degree within your context. Please comment on it. Actually, I have a limited chance to practice English daily.
Good Luck to You all the time,
Bimal from Sri Lanka
