How to prepare for ALL IELTS Speaking Introduction questions

Any IELTS Speaking test starts with introduction questions. What are they? The introduction questions are always about where you live, what you do for work, or what you study. After these questions the examiner goes on to some other topics. It is important to have a good start to your Speaking test, because it will help you feel more confident and calm for the next part.

To start your next IELTS speaking test feeling fully in control and ready, watch this video.

Adam will give you all the possible introduction questions you might be asked. He will act as the examiner and ask you the questions, and you can pause the video and practice answering them.

Adam has been an examiner for 10 years, and he can guarantee that the intro questions never really change! Even though they mix them around, there aren’t many ways to ask someone where they live, what kind of job they have, or what they are studying.

All the questions Adam is asking also appear on the screen for you to read, if you missed something he said.

Let your practice begin… now!
