Today I took my first lesson here in italki. I’m preparing for my IELTS test, so my teacher Rumbi, who is a wonderful and very patient teacher, gave me a little test in speaking. After the test with the teacher’s advices, i realize my main problem is that I talked too little. Almost every topic I talked about is very short. The thing is I’m not good at speaking even in my native language. Actually I’m more like a listener, and I didn’t think this troubles me until I realize how difficult it is for me last a conversation. I have friends who is good speaker, and sometimes i was really surprised by her talking art. And her idea of pushing conversations going is really good. Rumbi also told me good ways to expand a topic like explaining and giving examples. Anyhow, practice makes perfect!(though I don’t have much time left for preparing my test 😅 )

Great! Your vocabulary is very expansive, the only thing I’d practice is your use of tenses. Good luck for your test!
