IELTS Speaking test – the perfect example

I’ve received hundreds of emails after my previous post about the Interview part of the IELTS Speaking test, all asking for more Speaking videos. So guess what – yesterday I spotted this one on YouTube, I watched it 5 times and thought that it’s a good demonstration of what the IELTS Speaking test is really like.

Robbie, the interviewer and creator of a helpful IELTS website, used to be a real IELTS examiner and is following the format of the test very well.

The video is very close to the length of a real Speaking test and includes all the 3 parts: Interview, Cue Card and Discussion.


The IELTS Speaking test video

Many people feel insecure about the IELTS Speaking test, they consider it the hardest part of IELTS. I think that the reason is being face-to-face with the examiner; the intense interaction is what scares the students.

And guess what, as I was thinking “If only I could show them what it’s really like, maybe they wouldn’t be so frightened anymore” – I found this great video on YouTube which shows what a real IELTS speaking test is like.

So here it is, enjoy and relax – it’s not that bad!

Thanks to for the video – great job, guys!
