IELTS test in Canada – January 2023 (General Training)

Our friend S.N. took IELTS in Canada very recently and remembered the following questions:

Writing test

Writing task 1 (a letter)

The sports centre that you regularly visit has a problem with some of its equipment. Write a letter to the centre manager. In your letter

– Let them know about the problem
– Describe how it has affected you
– Explain why it should be fixed soon.

Writing task 2 (an essay)

Some people believe that schoolchildren should be allowed to make decisions about the school rules, while others think that teachers should be responsible for making the rules. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

Speaking test

– Can I see your passport?
– What is your name?
– Where do you live?
– What do you like about it?
– How often are you involved in your community?
– Do you drive or use public transport?
– How is today’s public transport in your city different from the past?
– What is the condition of public transport?

Part 2 (Cue Card)

Talk about a recent outing you had. Please say

– where you went
– who was there with you
– what you did
– and explain why you remember this outing.

Part 3 (Discussion)

– Why do you think people go out frequently?
– Who goes out more, younger or older people, and why?
– Should the government encourage the public to go out by offering incentives?

1) The Listening test was in the same format as in the book Cambridge IELTS 17.
2) Reading Passage 1 was the exact same text from Cambridge IELTS 17.
