IELTS Speaking Test Model Part 1

After you have introduced yourself and the Examiner has checked your ID, he or she will ask you questions on three topic areas. The first topic area will be about your studies, your work or where you live.

Examiner: Let’s talk about your home town. Where were you born?

Candidate: I was born in a place called Rochester in the Medway towns in Kent.

Examiner: Do you still live in Rochester?

Candidate: No, I haven’t lived in Rochester for a long time now, since I went to college. I live in London.

Examiner: Do most people like living in Rochester?

Candidate: I guess they do. I always wanted to live in London, so… my family still live there, but I guess it’s a nice place.

Examiner: Why?

Candidate: Well, it’s got beautiful architecture and it’s the home of Dickens and so there’s quite a lot of historical interest there and you’ve got countryside nearby and it’s easily accessible for London.

Examiner: Do you think you’ll stay in London?

Candidate: Oh, I don’t know. I’ve been here for quite a while now and although I love it, I can’t imagine spending my whole life here.


The next two topics will be more general.


Examiner: I’d like to move on to talk about sport. What’s your favourite sport?

Candidate: My favourite sport to watch is football, but to participate in, it’s swimming.

Examiner: When did you first become interested in swimming?

Candidate: Gosh, when I was a child, my dad used to take me swimming every week and I swam for my school.

Examiner: How often do you participate in swimming now?

Candidate: I try to swim at least two times a week.

Examiner: What equipment do you need for swimming?

Candidate: The great thing is that you don’t really need any equipment apart from goggles and trunks.

Examiner: Where do you go swimming?

Candidate: Anywhere I am. I love swimming in the sea but mainly I swim at my local pool.

Examiner: Now, let’s move on to talk about shopping. How do you feel about going shopping?

Candidate: I don’t mind going shopping. I like to know exactly what I’m going shopping for, though, I like to get in, buy it and go home again.

Examiner: Do you like buying clothes or goods on the Internet?

Candidate: I’ve never bought clothes on the Internet because I like to try them on before buying them but I’ve certainly bought electrical goods and other things on the Internet.

Examiner: What don’t you like about shopping?

Candidate: I don’t really like big crowds of people and fighting my way through them to get what I want. I guess I don’t like paying for it all.

    Welcome everyone ! I’m Jen.
    Even though I jokingly credit my aunt for my writing talent, I know that it is a skill I have fostered from childhood. Though my aunt is a writer, I also started out young.
    I’ve always had a way with words, according to my favorite professor . I was always so excited in science when we had to do a research writing assignment.
    Now, I help current students achieve the grades that have always come easily to me. It is my way of giving back to students because I understand the obstacles they must overcome to graduate.

    Hello, it’s Jena Berry here!
    I work as an academic writer and have created this content with the intent of changing your life for the better. I started honing my writing talent in my school years. I learned that my fellow students needed writing help—and they were willing to pay for it. The money was enough to help pay my tuition for my first semester of college.
    Ever since college, I have continued to work as an academic writer. I was hired by a writing service based in the United Kingdom. Since then, the dissertations that I have written have been sold around Europe and the United States.
    In my line of work, I have become used to hearing, “Jen, can you help me meet my writing assignment deadline?” I know that I can save their time.
