IELTS Speaking Tips: How to Improve Your Score

Part 1 – Introduction and interview (lasts for 4-5 minutes)

The examiner will ask you general questions about yourself and a range of familiar topics, such as home, family, work, studies and interests.

Part 2  –  Individual long-tern (lasts for 3-4 minutes)

You will be given a card which asks you to talk about a particular topic. You will have one minute to prepare before speaking for up to two minutes. The examiner will then ask one or two questions on the same topic.

Part 3 – Discussion (lasts for 4-5 minutes)

You will be asked further questions about the topic in Part 2. These will give you the opportunity to discuss more abstract ideas and issues.
