What not to do in the #Speaking test
This Facebook page includes a lot of advice on what you should do in the Speaking test. There are some things you should NOT do. Read this advice from Road to IELTS:

1) When the examiner asks you a question do NOT simply say, "I don't know", or request a different topic or question.
2) Avoid short "yes" and "no" responses; always try to include extra detail.
3) Do not worry if you realise you have made a mistake. It is OK to correct yourself. (If you cannot correct yourself, forget it and move on.)
4) Do NOT ask the examiner if what you say is correct.

This advice comes from the Speaking eBook from Road to IELTS (http://goo.gl/DQuC4w).

Understanding all the words in the Listening test
Remember, listening effectively does not mean you need to understand every single word you hear. In fact, you should not even try. When native speakers listen, they pick up on the most important words and phrases which carry meaning, and that is what you should try to do. Do not panic if you do not understand each word!

Practise this now using Road to IELTS (http://goo.gl/nYFHRS). Road to IELTS contains dozens of #IELTS #Listening activities and six full IELTS Listening mock test papers.

What should I do in my one-minute ‪#‎Speaking‬ preparation time?
Use the one-minute preparation time to make notes or bullet points before you make your short presentation. You can then look at the card and use these ideas as a guide. This gives your talk a good structure, and leads you naturally to signpost your talk, e.g. "first...", "another thing...", "the main thing...", "finally..."
For example, if your question is about whether it is better to access news online than on TV, you might write:
- Online: more sources / perspectives
- Online: instant access 24/7
- BUT can become obsessed, waste time
- TV news: more reliable
- TV news: can watch with others and discuss
Having these points on paper will make you much more confident when you start speaking. Learn more about ‪#‎IELTS‬ from our 30-day IELTS Tips app: http://goo.gl/yzPBTw

#‎IELTS‬ ‪#‎FAQ‬ : "give me ielts tips plzzz"
We often get this "question", but when it gets asked, there's not much we can do without knowing more about your level of English. Familiarise yourself with the IELTS test format and learn how to answer common question types. Practise using English as much as possible. In the one or two months before the test, try to use English properly. At least ask us to "give me IELTS tips, please!"

Test day advice for the #Reading test, from Road to IELTS:
1) Do not forget that you must write your answers directly on your answer sheet. You will not be given extra time to do this at the end of the 60-minute Reading test.

2) Remember that your written answers need to be grammatically accurate and spelled correctly. You will lose marks for incorrect spelling.

3) Think about skipping difficult questions and coming back to them later. If you do this, make sure you highlight the questions you skip so that you can find them again.
