Skill Description

Speaking and writing are referred to as productive skills. A person with good speaking and writing skills will be able to make themselves clear to the addressee(s). A student with poor speaking and writing communication abilities, however, may fail to get their message across to others which necessitates their staying remote from others. In other words, for communication to take place efficiently, there are three pre-requisite conditions: sender of a message, receiver of a message and a means of communication. The sender and receiver of the message are meaningless with no effective means of communication. Academically speaking, no full justice can be done to a test/ an exam with low proficiency in speaking and writing. IELTS is no exception. In short, sound communication skills in speaking and writing are the key to effective communication of all aspects, academically and personally.

Skill Details

An attempt will be made to improve the participants' competence and proficiency in speaking and writing skills in general. Apart from this, they will be exposed to sample IELTS speaking and writing tests. They will also be trained to use right test-taking strategies which should come in handy when sitting an IELTS Test.
