Part 1 Speaking test questions: holidays

Some people might tell you that Part 1 of the IELTS speaking test is not that important because it is the shortest part of the test and it contains the easiest questions. Wrong!

Part 1 is equally as important as the other parts of the test, and in many ways it is the most important because it the part of the test when the examiner will make an initial judgment about your level in relation to the IELTS band scores.

The examiner expects you to be a bit nervous at the beginning of the test so don’t worry if you make a few mistakes, but at the same time you should try your best to demonstrate a good range of structures and some colloquial language that is commonly used in everyday conversation.

This video gives you some useful expressions you can use on the topic of holidays and relaxation.
