Our subscribers J and P took their IELTS tests in India and Iraq a few days ago and were asked the same Speaking questions.
Test tip: Review these questions and come up with some potential responses and the vocabulary you’d use in them. IELTS is known to retest the same questions in multiple countries. Being prepared for past questions and topic areas increases your chances of success.
After putting together a list of ideas and vocabulary, answer the questions and record yourself. Later, listen to the recording, self-assessing your fluency, intonation, any vocabulary shortcomings, or potential mispronunciations. Rerecord anything you could have done better, and you’ll notice an improvement in the very next attempt!
