In today’s IELTS Speaking lesson Adam, our Speaking examiner who worked for the British Council for 10 years, will show you ways to answer a Cue Card (Speaking Part 2) question about a person who openly expresses their feelings, and the Speaking Part 3 questions related to it, about people and their feelings.
You will learn:
– what you can say (and whether it’s OK to lie!)
– vocabulary and how to use it in a sentence
– expressions for scoring Band 7 to 9
– grammar you can use to raise your score
So, grab a pen and paper and spend the next 15 minutes raising your IELTS score beyond what you thought was possible!
Go here to get Adam to assess your Speaking, estimate you the score you’re likely to get now and tell you how to score higher.
The Part 2 topic Adam talks about in this lesson is,
Describe a person you know who shows their feelings very openly. You should say:
– Who this person is
– How well you know this person
– How you feel about this person
– And explain why you think this person shows their feelings so openly.
Adam saw many test takers hesitate when they got this question, and that is why he knew he had to show you a great way to answer it. Make sure to watch Adam’s model answer for it here.
