Как готовиться к устной части IELTS?

Для того чтобы подготовиться к устной части экзамена по английскому языку IELTS, необходимо как можно больше тренировать свою речь, обязательно выучить различные полезные выражения и фразы, которые помогут сделать ее живой, легкой и красивой. Самой простой способ — это отвечать на вопросы оп разным темам. Это полезно также и для письменной части, так как позволит вспомнить грамматику и лексику.
