IELTS preparation: review your life in English

It is as reviewing your life in English since there are so many topics to be prepared in IELTS speaking test. You went back to your childhood to read the stories again when you prepared for a fairy tale topic. Or you recalled the people and events for relative topics. Sometimes you had to explore the area that you are not familiar with. Taking me as an example, I am fear about the topics on arts or fashion. I am afraid that I even cannot speak well in my native language, not to mention in English. However, there is an advantage: I cannot use the translation skill for these topics, which I believe should be the effective learning method. This is also a discovery that I discover through the preparation. I remember that I never do the translation between Mandarin and Cantonese which is my mother tongue. But for English, I still do the translation, which affects my fluency.

I am still working hard to achieve the score I need in the IELTS exam. Taking apart from the score, I acquire something which is more valuable than the band itself during the preparation. I seldom review my life in my native language, which leads to some precise experiences disappeared or misunderstanding of the past events. Preparing for the exam make me review the past in English and learn a lot from it (not just language). Therefore, enjoy your preparation of IELTS.
