Tips for passing IELTS from Eugene Efremova
Does emphasis matter in evaluating the speaking part?

Accent is a peculiar and unique way of reproducing sounds in a foreign language, which is caused by a different pronunciation system in the native language of the speaker. One part of the IELTS exam is Speaking, where you demonstrate the ability to express your thoughts in English verbally. On its official website, the IELTS developer suggests that the majority of those who pass the test speak with an accent. Does emphasis on a point affect Speaking? And is it worth it to spend precious time and effort on its “smoothing”?

In his video, the academic director of Global Ambassador Evgenia Efremova says:

  • how exactly the emphasis affects the assessment in the part of Speaking;
  • what factors determine the presence of a strong or weak accent;
  • and what is the difference in emphasis for getting a score of 6.0 and 8.0.
