    Spoken English Practice Rating by Yurij
    Yurij From Russia
    I finally passed my IELTS exam and got the results I wanted (L-8.5, R-8.5, W-7.0, S-7.0, O-8.0). Thanks for the service. Emily was a great conversation partner. She always prepared good topics and questions. On the writing part of the exam I got a topic related to one of the topics we had discussed with her. It was about zoos and elephants and was very helpful. Practice is extremely important for learning to speak English. Spoken English Practice provided me with a lot of practice on a regular basis.In the beginning, it was hard for me to remember words and speak fluently. From time to time, I had to look up words in a dictionary. Sometimes I knew the word but could not remember it until I looked it up in dictionary. After some time it became much easier. I get accustomed to the words I use the most. I also learned to replace the exact words I cannot remember with other words that are not exact but have a close meaning. As a result, I became much more fluent and more confident in my speaking skills

    46- Have you ever laughed so hard that you cried?

    47- Did you ever climb trees as a child?

    48- What is the best prank you have ever pulled?

    49- Do you play any sports? When was the last time you were on a team?

    50- Do you think there is a possibility of life elsewhere in the universe?

    Discussing these questions will naturally open up other new topics you have never spoken about before. In addition, these question topics are varied and unique so there is plenty of opportunity for new English vocabulary!

    Of course, not all of these topics will apply to you or your conversation partner when you practice English speaking. That in and of itself is a conversation starter. Perhaps some of these questions have no answer because you’ve never experienced them. You can discuss why or why not a certain question is applicable. In addition, do not be afraid to delve into deeper, more personal, or controversial topics with your English conversation partner. Often times, our greatest language enrichment comes from our emotionally charged discussions and conversations.

    Question prompts are a great idea if you and your English partner are running out of topics to practice English speaking. Obviously, there are thousands of more question prompts to incorporate into your English lessons. Feel free to make your own list of question prompts after you and your conversation partner have discussed all these prompts!
