Do you want to know your IELTS speaking band score?

by | Feb 18, 2017 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

This is an example of a typical speaking test. If you want an assessment of your IELTS speaking band score and a personalised plan to improve it, I have detailed a special service below.


In the first part of the test the examiner will ask you some questions about yourself. The ones below are examples:

  • Do you work or are you a student? Do you like this course/job?
  • What is your usual daily routine?
  • Do you expect to change this course/occupation in the future?
  • I’d like to move on now and ask you some questions about parks.
  • Do you like going to parks?
  • Are parks popular in your country?
  • Are the park facilities good?
  • How could you local park be improved?

Now, let’s talk about eating out.

  • How often do you eat out at a restaurant?
  • What sort of restaurants do you like best?
  • What sort of food don’t you like?

The examiner will give you a topic and ask you to talk about it for 1-2 minutes.

You will be given one minute to think about what you are going to say and you will be able to make notes during that one minute. You will be given some paper and a pencil to make those notes and the topic will be on a piece of card and the topic will look similar to the one below.

Cue Card
Describe a time when you waited for something or someone.

You should say:

  • What/Who you waited for
  • When it was
  • Why you were waiting

And explain how you felt about waiting.

You may be asked one or two follow up questions, such as “Do you think about this event very often?”

After you’ve talked about the topic in part 2 the examiner will ask you some questions related to that topic.

  • Do you think it’s important to be on time for all appointments?
  • Which do you think is better, a culture where it is important to be on time, or a culture where people don’t care so much about time?
  • Do you think young and old people have different views about the concept of punctuality?
  • Do you think mobile phones have changed peoples attitudes to waiting?


A personalised service for you.
An assessment costs $60 and will include detailed explanations of your band score, you strengths and weaknesses and a personalised plan of how to increase your band score to the next level.
