IELTS Speaking questions from India and China – February 2010

Before we get to the questions, I’d like to thank two IELTS teachers for their generosity, P. from China and R. from India. These caring educators shared the questions that their students remembered, for the sake of all the IELTS test-takers out there.

I think this is a very good development for everybody, because clearly IELTS teachers have access to many students and they are in an excellent position to contribute to IELTS-Blog. I would be very happy if more teachers who use IELTS-Blog to prepare their students for the exam were sharing with me the IELTS topics they got from their students.
