IELTS Speaking Test Tips
Part 2, known as the “long-turn” in the IELTS speaking test is not easy, because you have to speak on your own about the topic which is presented to you for 1-2 minutes with very little time to prepare.
The short video below gives you some useful tips on how to organise your answer.
It’s really important to use your 1-min preparation time to note down as many key words related to the topic as you can, because you can use them as prompts to help you to keep talking for up to 2 minutes
You might also want to use the preparation time to ask yourself additional questions that are not on the task card. That way, you won’t run out of things to say.
Remember that your mini speech should be personal, interesting, relevant and above all natural, just as if you were telling an anecdote to a friend
