We’ve made practicing your English every day easy by designing two english speaking tips checklists you can use to tick of simple daily tasks.
Why Are Your English Language Skills Important?
While you’re living, studying and working in Australia, you’ll need to use English every single day to talk to people and understand what’s going on. It’s essential to work on your:
- Speaking skills – to talk to friends, teachers and workmates
- Listening skills – to understand what friends, teachers and your workmates have to say or want you to do
- Writing skills – to be able to complete your university or college classes and get good grades
- Reading skills – to read course material, books, local newspapers and magazines
It’ll also help you to pass your IELTS exam which is one of the requirements for student visa to Australia. The IELTS test is a task-based test that assesses the four areas of English speaking listed above. The results you need depend on the program you’d like to be accepted into.
