(Tip) How to sound more fluent in your speaking and writing

Our community friend, cov, has shared an excellent link containing a thorough list of cohesive phrases (see below).  These phrases can be used in your speaking and writing and will do a lot to make you sound more fluent.  To do this, first try simplifying your sentences.  Don’t try to cram too many ideas into each sentence.  Link your ideas with the phrases found in this list and instantly your thoughts will sound much more natural.  Of course, the key to doing this well is practice.  Commit these phrases to memory so you can quickly access them when you need them.

Here is the link (thank you again, cov):

    Hi Ryan,

    Thank you very much indeed for your writing tips. They are absolutely unique and tremendously helpful. Following your tips I could score an overall band score of 8 (listining 8.5, reading 7, writing 7.5, and speaking 8)in the Academic IELTS, New Zealand.

    Previously I was extremely scared of the writing section and scored only 6.5. However after going through your online video classes for writing I got a perfect format for presenting academic essays. They are wonderfully structured and provide clear cut information on writing each and every sentence step by step, which is amazing. I would like to recommend your blog to every prospective IELTS examinee.

    Thank you once again from the core of my heart. Credit of my success goes to you.

    New Zealand
