Ordinary Training Programs: Shortcomings & Consequences

Critical Success Factor 1:

The ability to quickly understand the inner meaning of the question as it is being asked.


SpeakEnglishGym understands that in order achieve a good score you need to use simple, compound, and compound-complex sentences; use effective coordination and subordination of ideas to express complete thoughts and deliver them effectively. SpeakEnglishGym helps you achieve this in the easiest way.


Thanks to Spoken English Simulator, where you need to understand the questions and respond to them as in the case of real IELTS style speaking test, you will be able to understand the question quickly and will be ready to answer immediately.

3. 95% of candidates say, they enjoyed the cue-card session. 68% of the candidates didn’t even think it was necessary to write notes for the monologue.

Ordinary Training Programs-Shortcomings:

In their attempt to ‘cover’ the ‘portion’ of the syllabus within the promised time, they fail to build quick responding skills without grammatical errors.


Ordinary Training Programs-Consequences:

Most candidates at these centres complain that they go blank when they are supposed to answer. The root cause is that they could not understand the questions well, and proactively prepare their minds to predict important ideas and words.

Ordinary Training Programs-Results:

91% of students, who used the primitive methods of Ordinary training centres come out of the IELTS Speaking tests complaining that,

1. They could not answer correctly because they could not understand the question.

2. They could not formulate an answer. They were caught in the web thinking about which grammar structure to use.

3. They found it difficult to keep-up with the information provided by the examiner.

Critical Success Factor 2:

The ability to formulate apt answers with bright ideas, organize the sequence of presentation and plan pauses:


SpeakEnglishGym helps students formulate adroit judgments about questions asked. They deliver focused and coherent answers of their own that convey clear and distinct perspectives and solid reasoning. They also use gestures, tone, and vocabulary tailored to the environment and purpose.

Ordinary Training Programs-Shortcomings:

I have trouble catching the actual sounds of this foreign language.” For most students here, English remains a foreign language because they never get opportunity to get friendlier with English. They develop a ‘fear psychosis’ towards English listening.

Ordinary Training Programs-Consequences:

Confidence and ‘presence of mind’ are key factors in the IELTS speaking test-to formulate answers while listening to the questions, knowing that it is not a good idea to repeat the question. Most candidates from these training centres fumble miserably because they don’t have ample practicing opportunity like SpeakEnglishGym.

Ordinary Training Programs-Results:

93% of students, who followed ordinary methods complain that,

1. They find it difficult to comprehend the question. They end up parroting questions multiple times.

It is crucial to develop skills to listen and respond through the test. This ability comes only through practice.

Ordinary Training Programs-Results:

95% of students, who followed ordinary methods complain that,

2. 95% of candidates say, they could present the specific information from the cue-cards and develop the the answer considering the correct grammar structure.

Ordinary Training Programs-Shortcomings:

Students from ordinary training centres consider ‘structured speaking’ is a difficult task. Why? Student’s grammatical knowledge is as important as their ability to control the flow of response. Why? Because answers should be grammatically correct within the given sentences.

Ordinary Training Programs-Consequences:

Candidates fail to organize information to achieve particular purposes by matching the message, vocabulary, voice modulation, expression, and tone to the audience and purpose.

Ordinary Training Programs-Shortcomings:

Students at Ordinary Training centres suffer because they are exposed to very limited number of real-time speaking tests. The tests available on Internet are not time bound, therefore the candidates do not get the experience of attending a realistic test by a strange person, under time pressure.

Many training centres make candidates to memorise answers.
