A collection of exercises to prepare students, who need practice, for IELTS speaking which tests the use of grammatical range and accuracy.
The aim is to get students forming complex sentences naturally in order to pass with flying colours.
So, without further ado, let’s go to London which is my hometown as well as being the capital of the UK.
Exercise 1 A day in London. The aim is to introduce aspects of London in the form of complex sentences, using
who where which whose
Please allow me to introduce you to London, where I was born, so you can experience first hand what it is like to live in this incredible historic city.
Firstly, we can visit the British Museum, which is a must-see sight, as it contains some of the world’s most amazing treasures such as a giant stone figure from Easter Island, Egyptian mummies and the unique Rosetta Stone.
Secondly, I would be pleased to introduce you to the buskers and street performers at Covent Garden. These artists, who work for tips, really lend the area a bustling, friendly atmosphere. In my opinion this area, which is close to many sights, is not to be missed although prices can be sky-high.
No trip to London would be complete without sampling fish and chips which, along with shepherd’s pie and the Sunday roast, is traditional British food.
We have a variety of ways to get around. The famous black London taxis are ubiquitous in central London however, they cost an arm and a leg. Most Londoners use the Tube, which is the subway system, as it connects most areas of the city. Having said that, avoid using at rush hour, because it will be chockablock.
In the example I mentioned one famous sight, some people, some food and how to get around.
Now … your turn
Work in small groups and plan a day for me in your hometown. Assign one paragraph to each student so that everybody prepares work and speaks.
Remember, the aim of the exercise is for you to use relative pronouns.
First paragraph a famous sight
Second paragraph about some people
Third paragraph about local food
Finally, how to get around.
