IELTS Speaking Test: Sample Questions Part 2

IELTS Speaking Test Sample Questions Part 2

I remember the time when I was preparing for IELTS Speaking Test. Sometimes, you try to find a list of sample questions and it can take good amount of time. There is a number of websites which provide good ones. However, I decided to compile my own list.

I know, it is very useful for IELTS candidates to have such lists. When you have sample questions,  you don’t need to look for them each time you want to practice. It is also important to have extensive  ready-to-use list of  sample questions, because you are less likely to be distracted when trying to find something  online.

As for me, part 2 was the most challenging. I believe, a good proportion of people who prepare for IELTS speaking test are of the same opinion. Why? Because, It is really difficult to keep speaking  for 2 min and have well-organized answer. In this article I will give a couple of links to lessons teaching you how to give good answer and focused on most important aspects of  part 2 speaking test.

As always, the more you practice, the luckier you get 🙂 That said, I encourage you to read this article as often as it possible. Choose one question at a time and give your answer. It would be great if you will have this done at least once per day.  Don’t  be upset if initially  you feel that your answers are not as good as you wish they would. Keep on moving!
