Strategi IELTS Speaking Test: Practice Test 1 Buku Cambridge Practice Test for IELTS edisi 3

Pembelajaran bahasa yang baik, adalah pembelajaran yang bersifat alamiah (Harmer, 2007). Alamiah disini mengacu kepada runtutan pembelajaran kemampuan (skill) yang terintegrasi antara kemampuan reseptif dan produktif; di awali dengan listening sebagai kemampuan reseptif, karena pada dasarnya belajar bahasa itu bersifat immitating, sebagai manusia kita cenderung mengimitasi atau meniru bahasa dari apa yang kita dengar di lingkungan sekitar kita atau pun dari sumber manapun yang sering kita dengar. Selanjutnya proses immitating atau meniru di listening tersebut tentu saja terlihat pada kemampuan produktif kita, khususnya speaking.

Harus anda ketahui, dalam tes IELTS terdapat beberapa aspek yang penguji nilai dalam speaking section.

  • Fluency

Fluency terlihat dari bagaimana kelancaran anda dalam berbicara dalam Bahasa Inggris. Kelancaran disini dilihat dari banyaknya anda berbicara dan tanpa atau hanya sedikit melakukan hesitation (banyak jeda). Fluency juga dapat dilihat dari kemampuan anda untuk mengorganisasi arah pembicaraan, bagaimana memulai pembicaraan membahas secara detail isu permasalahan dan menyimpulkannya. Hal tersebut ditujukan untuk memperkaya dan memperbanyak pembicaraan yang coba anda sampaikan, anda dapat menjawab pertanyaan secara penuh dalam artian menjabarkan secara detail secara kompleks ucapan anda.

 

Misalkan di sesi pertama pada tes speaking, yang berarti berhubungan dengan informasi pribadi Anda, the examiner atau penguji akan bertanya apa Anda hobi, jangan katakan

Loading...

My hobby is writing, beres saja. Tetapi seharusnya Anda harus memberikan jawaban penuh dan rinci seperti:I am really passionate about writing because it is very pivotal for me to have good works on writing, since i have a dream to become a novel author, beside I also really hope by having good written works, I can create such a comprehend essay in order to fulfill the requirements of the scholarship.

Terlihat kan perbedaannya?

 

  • Vocabulary

Vocabulary dinilai dari how is your vocabulary build up?, hal tersebut dapat dilihat dari pilihan kata-kata yang digunakan dalam pembicaraan. Pilihan kata yang digunakan mengemukakan konteks yang anda coba bangun., contohnya: kata MENDAPATKAN dalam Bahasa Inggris. Untuk mengatasi hal ini, Anda harus memilih kata-kata yang tidak biasa atau kata-kata formal, hal itu dapat diatasi dengan mencari synonim dari kata-kata dari kamus yang baik seperti cambridge atau oxford, ada tesaurus, Anda dapat menemukan kata-kata yang memiliki arti yang sama dengan konteks yang tepat

 

Kata MENDAPATKAN dalam Bahasa Inggris yang dapat dikemukakan sesuai konteks:

Get

Accept

Receive

Acquire

Achieve

 

  • Grammar

Grammar dilihat dari susunan atau struktur kalimat yang anda gunakan dalam berbicara dan menunjukan konteks dan situasi. Tes pengukur kemampuan berbahasa Inggris tentu saja tidak akan terlepas dari penilaian tata bahasa atau grammar.Untuk mengatasi hal ini dalam tes speaking IELTS, Anda dapat berbicara dengan aman menggunakan simple present, karena terutama, pertanyaan-pertanyaan yang diberikan oleh pemeriksa adalah tentang menjelaskan, menggambarkan yang mengharuskan Anda untuk menggunakan simple present. Kemudian, jika Anda ditanya mengenai peristiwa masa lalu, Anda hanya dapat dengan aman beralih menggunakans simple past

 

  • Pronunciation

Pronunciation dilihat dari kejelasan anda berbicara dan intonasi yang membuat pembicaraan menjadi menarik.

Pronunciation menuntut Anda untuk berbicara secara benar, Anda dapat berlatih dengan immitating pembicara yang baik, mungkin di youtube atau di film. Atau jika Anda menemukan kosakata baru Anda hanya cukup mencari kamus dan mencoba untuk mencari tahu bagaimana kata-kata yang diucapkan. Dalam kasus jika Anda khawatir tentang aksen Anda, mungkin seperti Inggris sunda, Inggris jawa, atau latar belakang asal anda mempengaruhi aksen, jangan khawatir, tidak apa-apa. Karena penguji atau the examiner tidak akan mempermasalahkan hal tersebut

Untuk meningkatkan nilai anda, 4 aspek penilaian di atas dapat dijadikan sebagi patokan untuk belajar atau latihan dalam rangka menigkatkan kemampuan Berbahasa Inggris anda dan juga  tentunya meninkat skor IELTS anda.

FORMAT TES SPEAKING IELTS

PART 1 – Introduction:
Family:
Q. Do you have a large family or a small family?
A. I come from a small family. I live with my parents and two siblings. As I recall we used to live with our uncles and aunts many years ago. But now we have a nuclear family.

  1. Can you tell me something about them?
    A. Yeah sure. My father is a lecturer and he has been lecturing inthe University for more than 15 years. He possesses a great and exemplary personality. People think that he has a very controlled personality but we know that he is very kind. I am proud to have such a great father. He is my idle in my life.

 

My mother is a number one mother in the world and she is the most kindhearted woman I have ever seen in my life. She is a teacher in a school and she teaches Mathematics. She is my best friend and I adore her very much.

My brother is 3 years senior to me and he is working in a telecommunication company in Jakarta as a System Analyst. He is around 28 years old and a very good friend and mentor to me.

My younger sister is only 12 years old and she is busy with her home works, study and computer. She is very sweet and helps my mother often to finish her household chores. I love her very much and she talks a lot to me. In our house, I am her best friend and I often help her completing her home works.

  1. How much time do you manage to spend with members of your family?
    A. I live with my family and I spent most of my time at home with my family members. When I am out of home for my classes, or go to hang out with friends are the times I stay away from my family. Apart from that, I mostly spend time with them.

I have a very close relationship with my younger sister and my brother. We often go out together to watch movies or to do shopping. We sometimes play computer games together. On an average I spend 5-7 hours with my family members in a typical day.

  1. What sorts of things do you like to do together?
    A. I like to discuss my plans with my father. I often take advice on important things from him. He discusses his experience, tells me history and often he teaches me morality and importance of being honest in life. He recommends me books and then we discuss about these books in our free time.

I do everything with my brother John. We hang out together, watch movies, read books, sometimes we fight, we often complaints to our parents about what I or he should not have done, we swim, catch fish, play football and many other countless things. Though he is very friendly, he often scold me whenever he things I did something wrong. He even acts like a mentor sometimes. Nowadays, he got busy in his office and that’s why we spend our time together on his days off.

I play computer games and chess with my sister and she often seeks my advice regarding things she can’t decide alone. We watch cartoons and documentary on History Channel together.

I love to talk to my mother and she is very fond of feeding us. She often shares her experience at school with us and we often watch TV serials and sports together. She loves to hear some classic music and I have become a fan of her favourite singers. So I often listen to music with her.  There are many more activities that actually I do with my family members and those are the frequent ones.

  1. Did/ Do you get on well with your family? Why?
    A. Yes, obviously I go well with my family. They are the most precious things I have in my life. They care for me a lot, they help me on my difficult times and my whole existence is surrounded with them. Whoever I am and whoever I become in future would be because of my family members’ love, care and affections.

I have a strong bonding and friendly relationship with my family. They share their thought and everyday experience with me. They always try to support me no matter what and all those mutual understanding makes us a small, happy family

 

PART 2 – Cue Card

Topic: 

Describe a teacher who has influenced you in your education.

You should say:

• where you met him/her.
• what subject he/she taught.
• what was special about him/her.

and explain why this person influenced you so much.

I consider myself lucky to get several very good teachers throughout my academic years. Among them I’d like to talk about Mr. Jajang who was an extraordinary teacher, a really good mentor and who has a great influence in my education.

I met Mr. Jajang when I was in 4th class and he was our math teacher. Initially we thought that he would be a moody teacher and we would have to be very polite in front of him. This impression came mostly because of his serious face and tidy dress-up. But soon we found that, he is a very friendly person and teaches us very well. He never made things complicated and tried over and over again to explain something to us. He had a very unique way of teaching. Seems like he would start an interesting story and later we would find that he would relate the math with the story. Thus everything we learned from him was interesting and that’s why we remember most of the theory and techniques of math he taught us.

I’d say he has a great influence in my education because he made a very strong foundation on Mathematics. Later on I studied Science and the Mathematics was the most important subject. I have always been good at math and that’ mainly because of Mr. Jajang who had a major role on making the subject interesting to me. Before I learned math from Mr. Jajang, my impression on math was not good and I considered mathematics to be a very difficult and uninteresting subject. But his teaching and influences changed my way of thinking about math and later on math became my one the most favourite subject.

PART 3 – Follow up Questions

Discussion topics:

Developments in education…

Q. How has education changed in your country in the last 10 years?
A. I live in a developing country where the education sector went through numerous changes including the government’s more fund allocation in education, more women enrollment in higher studies, changes in academic syllabus etc.

During the last 10 years the most significant change that has happened in education sector in my country is the people’s mentality regarding the necessity of education. Only 20-30 years back many parents showed little interest in sending their kids to school. But that has radically changed in my country and nowadays almost every parent sends their children to school. This is a giant leap in my opinion in terms of the advancement of our education. Government allocated a share portion of its budget to ensure the schools infrastructure, study materials and salary of the teachers and that has been proven effective to build a solid ground to make an education nation. Only in the last 5 years our literacy rate has almost doubled and I give a major credit to the government for ensuring free education in primary level, special scholarship and monetary rewards to women students.

I am not 100{d9775817d1000b7b9cd87670de73f89ee785f44791f9392668bc2eef96b49779} sure about the exact statistics but my best guess would be that more than 200-300 colleges and universities have been established in the last few years. We had only 4-5 engineering university back in 2000 but we have more than 30 such educational institutions now. More importance has been given to vocational education and thus a large number of underprivileged populations have come under the vocational education system.

In a nutshell, that was a massive change and I have witnessed some of those changes in my own eyes including how public exams’ quality have been improved, how the schools are emphasizing on English and Mathematics as academic subjects and so on and on.

  1. What changes do you foresee in the next 50 years?
    A. If you ask me about the type of changes that might occur in education sector in my country in next 50 years, I would need to rely on my own past experience and predictions mostly. My best guess is that, the education would be more practical than theoretical in future. Women’s participation and performance in education would excel to a great extent. More women would be in research and higher education than their male counterpart.

The education would be expensive and private education institutes would be more demanding than the public and state owned ones. More foreign students would come to study here and the number of higher education institutes would increase by many-fold than the current number.

The digitalization and computer based education system would replace many traditional education systems and the online education would be a very popular form during that time.

Curriculum and subject offered in the college and education level would see a dramatic increase and technology would be the most important and demanding subject in this era.

Not sure if I will be alive or not to see the changes but I hope many positive changes within the next 50 years in my country including 100{d9775817d1000b7b9cd87670de73f89ee785f44791f9392668bc2eef96b49779} literacy rate, more engineering and research based education system, some of our universities are raking in the world’s best university list and we are renowned as a country of a very excellent place for education.
A national education system…

Q. How do the expectations of today’s school leavers compare with those of the previous generation?
A. Well, the schools leavers nowadays are expected to study further and get involved in a part-time job to gain practical experience. The job market is pretty competitive compared to the previous time. Getting a good job requires talent, some practical experience, good grades in school and many other criteria. The competitions in public service or Government jobs are even higher. In the past decades there were very few school graduates in my country and hence securing a job both in public and private sector was not that tough.

The requirement is education is higher than the past. Twelve class degree is not enough to get a decent job. Recruiters are looking for candidates with prior job experiences and at least Bachelor degree. Thus the school leavers nowadays have no other option but to continue their studies. Getting a part-time job besides the study is a dream for many.

I heard from my grandfather that there were only few bachelor degree holders in his whole village while there must be more than 100 bachelor degree holders in a single community these days.

Those who leave school without completing the course have no other option but to either look after their family business or manage a job where physical labour is the only skill s/he has.

The population in my country has almost doubled in the last decade and that is pretty obvious that the completion the school leavers nowadays face is tremendous. Among the school leavers, many decide their major in college or university while other prefers vocational education. This facility was very narrow in my grandfather’s generation as I know. So I would say there is a whole lot of difference between current and past generations in terms of their opportunity, action and plan after leaving school.

Q. What role do you think extracurricular activities play in education?
A. Extracurricular activities sharpen the minds of students and enhance their creativity. Activities that require physical movements keep their body fit and thus the importance of extracurricular activities are immense. It is often experienced that kids who have interest in sports and games outperform the others in many fields. Extracurricular activities like singing, debating, painting can be very handy in terms of career enhancement. Students who have extracurricular activities possess better leadership and social activities. Finally from my experience I can say that such students have better knowledge about the world than students who are solely focused on academic lessons.
Different styles/ methods of teaching and learning…

  1. What method of learning works best for you?
    A. I prefer to work in pair for the complex topics and subjects. The group discussion in particular works best for me. When I study in a group I can discuss my views and learn opinions of others. Thus the discussion is always helpful and I can better perform in exam and remember the details for a long.
  2. How beneficial do you think it is to group students according to their level of ability?
    A. It’s always beneficial for students to make a group for study and discussion. If the group comprises students of similar caliber and talent levels, they are proven to be more helpful. Similar abilities of students in a group can be advantageous from mainly two points of views. They are more frank to participate in discussion and they have a good understanding among themselves. Secondly, they understand each other better and can advise in an effective way.

If a group is formed with different levels of students, there is a chance that a really talented student would get bored with the silly discussions by the others while a dull student among really talented group mates would not dare to opine whenever s/he likes.
