字幕表 動画を再生する 英語字幕をプリント Hi, guys. This is Jessica Beck with IELTS Energy and the website ielts.allearsenglish.com. Um, I would like to focus on our part two strategy, uh, telling a story. If you guys listen to our podcast, also called IELTS Energy (laughs) just like this YouTube station, if you listen to our podcast, you know that there are so many reasons to, uh, use this strategy in part two. And, you can use it for any topic, okay? Any topic card you get in speaking part two, you can use this strategy. Why should you use this strategy? Well, guys, um, for some people, a lot of people, talking for two minutes in an organized, coherent way is not easy. Even for native speakers, it's not easy, all right? So, if you use this strategy, if you think of a story or make one up, which is fun, if you, if you tell a story, it's organized already. This is organized from beginning to end. So, it helps you reach that two minutes in an organized way, with linking words. First, this happened, after that, five minutes later, finally, blah, blah, blah. You can use these linking words to organize your story. So, fill the two minutes in an organized way. High fluency and coherent score. Also, um, if you tell a story, then, you usually add interesting details, either that you're making up as you go or that you actually call to mind to create an image in telling a story for the examiner. This allows you to offer very specific vocabulary, so raises your vocab score, and, um, it also increases your pronunciation score, because when we tell a story, we become more emotive. We use our emotions more. That will, I promise you, and again, you know this if you listen to the podcast. Putting emotion in your voice will raise your pronunciation score. So, those are the three categories that we always focus on raising our scores in vocabulary, fluency and coherence, and pronunciation. Telling a story does all of those things, all right? Let me, let's, let's talk about some examples, okay? So, one of the most difficult part two tasks out there, uh, ask you to describe objects. There are a bunch of different examples of this. One example might be, um, describe an expensive object that you want to own, all right? So, how do you turn that into a story? Well, first of all, guys, answer the question directly, all right? Um, say exactly what it is you want to buy, why you want to buy it, and then, create a story around this object, all right? Say, for example, you want to buy a new car. Tell me what new car you want to buy, why you want to buy it, and then, tell me a story of what you would do the very first day you had it, all right? Like, take a road trip to the coast with your two best friends and your dog. Take a tent, go camping on the beach. Drive into a cute little town to find some seafood. Um, drive to another little town to go fishing. You know, there, you can create a whole story around this object. Now, remember, guys, this is something you have to practice, just like any skill and strategy, especially if you want to try and make up stories, um, because that does make practice, all right? I can come up with stories w- about anything, right away, with no problem (laughs) without even taking notes or thinking about it, but that's because I, I practice inventing stuff all that time. I, I'm a writer. I love to be creative. So, this is something very fun. It's an awesome skill, and it will help you in part two, okay? All right, so, what if you have to describe an event or experience? Well, that's an easy story, guys. Tell the story of the experience. Boom, done. (laughs) Okay? Don't get sidetracked, all right? Don't start, don't weave in and out, and start talking about something, something else, like your friend that you saw there, or something. Focus on telling a coherent story from beginning to end. That's what you also have to practice taking notes on, all right? So you can organize these ideas before you start talking, okay? So, that one's easy. What about a person? Now, um, guys, you should go to our website, ielts.allearsenglish.com. Lindsay and I have done, um, three episodes on all, or is it four episodes? On all the possible speaking part two topics, the strategies for each of them, and sample answers. So, again, go to our website, ielts.allearsenglish.com. Type, "Part two strategy," in the search bar. All right? So, what if you're asked to describe a person? Well, tell me who you're describing. Tell me what they look like, their personality, and then, tell me a story about that person. All right? And again, guys, you can make it up. Um, if you can't think of a story right away, don't worry about it. Just make it up. Say you have to describe your best friend, okay? What if last week you guys went hiking, and, uh, and you guys got lost, and your best friend is so calm and intelligent that she didn't get worried. She sat down, looked at a map. Um, she picked a direction and i- you guys walked for another mile. Unfortunately, it was the wrong way, but your friend still stayed calm, which helped you to, um, also keep your wits about you. And, eventually, after a couple hours l- in the forest, you guys found your way out (laughs) to the highway and caught a ride back to the parking lot. I don't know. (laughs) Like, I guess, I'm just, I'm just making it up. Um, so, practice this skill and strategy, guys. It is the best way. It is the best way to get the highest scores in speaking part two, so practice this one strategy for all your answers.
