IELTS Tips and Tricks

Speaking  Fillers

In IELTS Tips & Tricks Using speaking fillers in IELTS  enables the candidate to have some valuable time to think about what they are going to say rather than just rushing in and making lots of mistakes!
Most of the time, while talking to our friends or colleagues, we forget words while giving a response to someone. In such situations, we use fillers to continue smooth and effective communication. A filler word is an apparently meaningless word, phrase, or sound that marks a pause or hesitation in speech. Fillers are also called ‘Discourse Makers’. Let’s learn some filler words that can be used in communication.

a) To be honest

b) Well

c) I hadn’t thought about that before. Give me a moment to think, please

d)It’s difficult to say

e) It’s funny you should ask that

Following phrases and idioms can be used as fillers.

1. Wow

This is an expression of surprise or happiness that comes out unexpectedly.
E.g. Wow! You have amazing artistic skills.

2. Actually/basically

It is used while explaining concepts or facts from the initial stage.
E.g. Actually, Mr. Ram is our very first client.

3. You know/you see/I know/I see

It is used for creating familiarity between the concept and the listener.
E.g. You know, they are working for the last 20 years for our organization.

4. I mean/you mean

It is used to confirm the understanding of something.
E.g. You mean, the event is postponed?

5. Come on

It is used to motivate people.
E.g. Come on guys, this is the moment for which we were waiting.

6. Well/By the way

This filler indicates that the subject of discussion is going to change on a certain step.
E.g. The event was really awesome. By the way, when are our lectures starting?

7. Believe me

It is used to convince someone regarding something.
E.g. Believe me, I will complete this assignment.

8. How shall I put it?

This phrase indicates that the speaker wants to convey something but the words are becoming shorter and unorganized in his/her mind.

E.g. This concept is very challenging to put down, how shall I put it?

9. It’s on the tip of my tongue.

This is a very popular phrase used when a speaker is not able to recollect the very well-known word.
E.g. The name of that cricketer is on the tip of my tongue.

10. Now, let me think.

This phrase asks for a small gap of a few seconds for a speaker to think about certain things.
E.g. How did we allocate this activity, let me think?

IELTS Speaking is a face-to-face conversation and informal discussion with an examiner, and is the same for both General Training and Academic. The test is divided into three parts and is designed to test your grammar, vocabulary, fluency and pronunciation.


There are three parts to the speaking test. (IELTS Tips and Tricks)

PART 1: There are some introduction questions and question on familiar topics.

Part 1 of the will start with examiner asking you to state your full name and show your real identification.

Next, examiner will asked some general questions about yourself like where do you come from or what you are doing currently (studying/working).

After that examiner asked few questions about a range of familiar topics. For example, about the fruits and vegetables you like, cooking, weather, shoes, singing or movies. Examiner generally asked about one or two topics.

Moreover, examiner will ask some scripted questions and he/she will listen your answer, encourage you to extend your answer/response with a “how” and “why” or “why not?” if your answer in too short or not appropriate.

This part of speaking test mainly focuses on student’s ability to communicate opinions and relevant information on day-to-day topics by answering a range of questions.


PART 2: Cue-card/ Individual long turn

2 To 3 minutes

After Part 1, the examiner will give you a one familiar topic related with your everyday life and will ask you to talk about it for one to two minutes only.

The topic will be handed to student and examiner will also be given a piece of paper and pencil for making some notes on it. On the cue-card/ individual long turn student see speaking prompt and few bullet points with the help of that student prepare notes.

After that student have only one minute to think about it and prepare some notes on it before speak. Examiner will use timer and will tell you when your time is up.

The examiner will tell you when to start your conversation and examiner will remind you that they will stop you after 2 to 3 minutes. The points mention in the cue-card will help you to think what you say and with the help of that you should try to keep talking for the 2 to 3 minutes. Examiner may ask you a few questions about what you earlier said before going on to the next section.

The part of the test assesses your skill set to speak at length on a specific topic, using apt/relevant language and manage your ideas in a logical way. Student can use his/her own experience on the topic to help complete the cue-card or individual long turn.

PART 3: Two-way discussion/ discussion between two individuals and Follow-ups



4 To 5 minutes

The questions in part three will be related to the familiar topic that you spoke about in part 2 cue-card/individual long turn. Student will discuss the topic in a more abstract and general way showing to examiner that student is able to express and justify his/her opinions, discuss and speculate on the topic more deeply.

If your cue-card was about beautiful place in your city, in this section might begin by talking about places of interest or beautiful places and the first question might be, “Do you like to visit on different places?”

The examiner will speak more with you in follow-up section and may ask you to justify your views to see how well you are able to communicate about relevant ideas compared to the personal topics you spoke about in Parts 1 and 2.

In Part 3, you are assessed on your ability to express your opinions and to examine, share and hypothesize about a range of issues connected to the familiar topic you spoke about in Part 2.
