Thanks to our kind friend from Zimbabwe we are sharing the Speaking questions he remembered from his very recent IELTS exam.
Preparation advice: Get a friend to act as an examiner and ask you these questions, answer them and record yourself. When you re-listen later, try to spot any pronunciation issues or grammatical mistakes, and think of ways to make your answer more interesting.

– What is your full name?
– Where are you from?
– Can you tell me about your hometown?
– How long have you lived in your hometown?
– What do you like the most about your hometown?
– Could you describe the climate in your hometown?
– What kind of food is your hometown known for?
– How has your hometown changed over the years?
