Comment adverbials and set phrases for a higher speaking score.
Updated: April 28th 2022.
In the IELTS speaking exam you will be judged on the range and accuracy of your vocabulary, so having a wide range of expressions helps your score.
Comment adverbials are a good way to show emphasis that something is surprising, true, disappointing, coincidental, unbelievable, fortunate or unfortunate.
Key point: These are mainly used in speaking because in IELTS writing they look too informal.
