Bite-size IELTS Grammar - How to use WOULD in IELTS Speaking

Using 'would' in IELTS Speaking to impress the IELTS examiner

Write your awesome label here.
In IELTS Speaking, the IELTS examiner is listening for a range of tenses for Grammatical Range and Accuracy. Many IELTS candidates get nervous and just use the present simple or the past simple. This is not going to get you a high band score for Grammatical Range and Accuracy in IELTS Speaking. Remember that Grammatical Range and Accuracy is 25% of your overall band score for IELTS Speaking so you need to use a range of different tenses and structures. In this video, we show you how to use 'WOULD + infinitive' in the IELTS Speaking exam. This is a great way to impress the IELTS examiner because it is a complex and unusual (for non-native speakers of English) way of talking about repeated actions in the past.
