What did you do at work today? I wrote a report.
This is called Grammatical Accuracy.

Patrick is the man who Ann said will tell us all about the Church.
This is called Grammatical Range.

It’s quite easy, all you just need to do is just to stay with me Michelle to learn more about Grammatical Range and Accuracy for the IELTS Speaking Test.

You might be surprised to hear that grammatical range and accuracy is one of the four criteria used to assess your IELTS Speaking test performance and that it carries 25% of the points. Many test-takers assume grammar in speaking is only about accuracy and not making any mistakes. This is only half the story. Making errors is natural, and IELTS understands this: even IELTS Speaking Band 7 description expects that “some grammatical mistakes persist”.

1. Grammatical Range – for upper intermediate and above.

Meaning: How widely can you use grammar structures? i.e. Complex structures- sentences with multiple bits of information. (Simple sentences use single bits of information).

Aim: to use complex sentences naturally

Example: The picture of the children standing in front of the Palace talking to the Prime minister is wonderful.

2. Grammatical Accuracy – For Intermediate and below:
Aim: To know the possible tenses required in each part of the speaking test.
Meaning: Many tasks in the part 1 & 2 of the IELTS Speaking Test relate to the past experience, so you most likely use past tenses: How: Ensure you know the past simple tense of some of the common verbs. And You can try to use these in simple sentences and at least attempt complex sentences sometimes.
For example:
feel – felt
Fight – fought
Wait - waited
Want – wanted

Examiner (task 2): Topic: Describe a foreign language you have learned.
You: The first foreign language I learned is English. I decided to learn it because I needed it for job purposes.

Task -3
Meaning: Also many tasks in part 3 of the IELTS Speaking Test ask us to talk about future possibilities. So be prepared to use future tense for the answers.

HOW: THERE ARE DIFFERENT WAYS OF TALKING ABOUT THE FUTURE – please see my video “talking about the future” to learn about future tenses.

For Example: Topic - EDUCATION
Examiner: Do you think computers will one day replace teachers in the classroom?
You: I think that digital learning will soon/ is going to replace classroom teaching.
