The IELTS Speaking Test is designed to be a fair test of a candidate's English regardless of where the candidate is from. Whether a student is from China, Brazil or Germany, the test should be a fair test of speaking and will give no advantage to a particular cultural background.  The IELTS Speaking test is divided into three sections, all requiring candidates to speak and produce language. On this page, you will find our free IELTS Speaking Test Practice Questions and Teaching Pack PDF. There is a range of IELTS pracice questions for speaking and also some good IELTS speaking tips and IELTS teaching tips for speaking.

Part 1 of the IELTS Speaking Test

Part 1 of the IELTS Speaking Module consists of personal questions about you, your family, your work, your education or other familiar topics. A nice list of example topics and questions is given for you in this pack. You can use these sample questions to practice and rehearse for this part of the speaking test. Make sure you can speak correctly, clearly, and with ease and confidence. Practice makes perfect!! Remember to make your answer interesting for the IELTS examiner by providing more than the most basic information. The more you can speak and the more language you produce, then the higher your mark will be. Try to use a range of different grammatical structures to get your score even higher! Some of these sample IELTS Speaking questions are highly likely to appear on your exam, so practice them with your teacher.

Part 2 of the IELTS Speaking Test
In Part 2 of the IELTS Speaking Module, you need to give a short talk, of about 1-2 minutes, on a simple topic. The questions do not require any specific knowledge, but are based on your own personal experience. The questions could be answered by anyone. You will be handed a card with the topic and you have one minute to prepare your talk. You can and should make notes and use these notes during your talk. The examiner will not ask you any questions during this part of the test, so try to make sure that you mention during your 1-2 minute talk all the points on the card. Some sample IELTS Speaking Test Part 2 cards are given below. Practice using the cards to make notes for one minute before giving a 1-2 minute talk. A good tip is to record yourself, so you can listen back and try to find any mistakes or problems which need fixing.

Part 3 of the IELTS Speaking Test
In Part 3 of the IELTS Speaking Module, the examiner will ask you a question based on the topic of the question card in Part 2. This will then become the basis of a two-way discussion between the candidate and the examiner lasting around 4-5 minutes. The candidate should try to speak as naturally and fluently as possible, and it is here that candidates can really impress the examiner and score as highly as possible. A good tip for teachers is to record students in the days and weeks leading up to the exam and error correct with the student together looking at the video. This is something which IELTS students would rarely do on their own, so having their teacher do this with them is especially useful IELTS teaching and ideal preparation for the IELTS speaking test.

A Nice Tip for IELTS Speaking Test Preparation for Both Candidates and Teachers
As good IELTS reading practice and good preparation, ask your student to read news articles on current affairs and international news. Not only is this good as reading practice and as a vocabulary expansion exercise, but the student may even be able to discuss current events in Part 3 of the IELTS Speaking Test and impress the examiner still further.
