Stop Saying, “Maybe” in IELTS Speaking

To express possibility in the future, of course, we can also use the modal verbs as above (may. might, could), For example, let’s look at an answer to this question:

Will you shop online more in the future?

We can answer

I may (well) do. You know, it’s getting easier and saves me time.

I could (well) do. You know, it’s getting easier and saves me time.

We can also give short answers with adverbs, as below,

Conceivably, companies like Amazon make it so easy with their ‘one-click shopping’  

Feasibly, companies like Amazon make it so easy with their ‘one-click shopping’  

or with adverbial phrases, as follows,

There’s a good likelihood

There’s a fair chance

If we want to express stronger probability, we could say,

It’s highly/most/very probable

It’s a safe bet

It’s more than likely
