Expand Your Answers
In your IELTS, or TOEFL and Cambridge exams, it is important to say more, so that you can demonstrate your English fluency and vocabulary skills.
This is a very simple technique that you can use to help you say more, to give more details, in a fluent and natural way.

You can use this technique for any occasion when you want to impress others with your English speaking skills, sound fluent and use more vocabulary.

Never Be Lost for Words Again
If you could put your ideas into a box, then each side of the box could represent a different way to view its contents.
This is the simple, but extremely effective method of cubing.
Each side of the box represents one of the core questioning words:
Who, What, Why, Where, When & How
These 6 simple words can allow you to expand what you want to say and help you to demonstrate more vocabulary and fluency skills. This is an ideal technique for IELTS exams, where you have to expand your answers, but you can also use it in any other situation where you need to speak more.
