What speaking ability does a score of IELTS Band 6 represent? Watch this Speaking test sample, where Gabriel from Brazil talks about 'Hobbies'. Here's why this performance was given a Band 6: This test taker is able to keep going and produce answers of sufficient length, but his performance is characterised by hesitation, repetition and self-correction. This limits his fluency and causes some loss of coherence but, overall, he is not hard to follow as he uses linking words and markers quite effectively (first; because; for example). His vocabulary is wide enough to deal with the topics at some length (way to escape; driving over the limit; day-today activities; you need to pay your bills), but there is a lack of flexibility. In spite of some inaccurate word choices and expressions, he is generally able to express his ideas and opinions sufficiently, if not very effectively (they need to be pleasure; forget what’s bad; we need to have other thing to be relax). He produces a mix of short and complex sentence forms and a variety of structures, but with limited flexibility. Errors occur with word order, articles, redundant subject pronouns or subject omission, but these do not impede communication (they need always have something to do; is something that you don’t do always; if you spend too much time doing hobby there’s something wrong; if you are doing a lot of hobby; if you do always everything). The test taker uses a range of pronunciation features but with mixed control. Rhythm is sometimes affected by his hesitation and some lapses into syllable-timing. Not all sounds are well articulated and he occasionally omits syllables (activit(ie)s). Although these negative features reduce clarity at times, he can generally be understood throughout.
