IELTS Speaking Revision – A Full Sample Speaking Test with Three Parts



Part 1 (Interview):


Personal questions:

- Can you please show me your identification?

- How should I call you?

- Are you working now or are you a student?


Now let’s talk about your childhood.

- What outdoor activities did you enjoy doing as a kid?

- When you were at school, did you have to do much homework?

- Are there things in your childhood that you would like to change?


Now let’s move on to the next topic – music.

- What is your favorite music genre? Why?

- Do you have a favorite singer or music band? If yes, please describe.

- Do you enjoy listening to music alone or with others?


Part 2 (Cue Card):


In this part, you are given one minute to prepare and one to two minutes to talk about the following topic.


Describe a situation in which you were surprised.


You should say:

- When and where the situation was

- Whom the situation involved

- What you initially expected as results of the situation


And explain why you were surprised.

Follow-up question:

- Did you learn any useful lessons from that occasion?


Part 3 (Discussion):


Now in the final part of the IELTS Speaking test, I would like to ask you about education in the digital age.

- Should students be allowed to use mobile devices, such as smartphones, in classrooms?

- Has technology affected the student-teacher relationship in a positive or negative way?

- How can schools further apply technology to improve their teaching quality?

- Do you think that one day, students will be completely instructed by robots?
