Some Techniques to Strengthen Conversation Skills

 Imitate.

 After listening and reading for a while, new words come to mind and you can use them.  I recommend repeating them when you come across a new word.  If you see the word in the text, in addition to the meaning, check its correct pronunciation.  When listening to audio files, play the part where the word is used several times to get acquainted with the context of the sentence, the expression of the phrase and the tone of the speaker.  After listening, read the transcript of the file, the words and phrases aloud and as closely as possible to the speaker.  Pay attention to the melody and weight of the sentences when they are uttered and try to pronounce them like them.  Repeat this exercise several times.

You do not need to start this exercise from the first time you listen to your audio file (or watch the movie).  You can practice for the first time just to get acquainted with the phrases.

 Record your voice.

 In addition to using different words properly, their pronunciation also affects your IELTS interview score.  Record your workouts from time to time and compare with your files.  In this exercise, you will find a good opportunity to check the various words and sounds with great accuracy and find your mistakes.

Speak.

 Try to find a conversation for yourself at home or with co-workers to use the skills practiced and test yourself.  If you make a mistake in your conversation, put the worry aside and move on.  If you can’t find someone to talk to, I suggest you practice with yourself on a variety of topics from IELTS Cue Cards.  You can even record your own video to evaluate your body language during a conversation in addition to pronunciation.
