IELTS examiners have a lot of topics and the above are only a sample posted by candidates. You MUST prepare a range of topics which include the above and also common topics. See below for the useful link.

Tips Relating to Above Topics

  1. These topics are not predictions. They are topics that students have posted after their test.
  2. This list is not complete. There is always a chance you might get a topic not listed below.
  3. I will continue to up-date this list when candidates report new topics.
  4. You should prepare ideas for all topics listed on this page.
  5. Also prepare:  Common Part 2 Topics
  6. Do not memorise your talk. IELTS do not accept memorised answers. Instead you should prepare ideas and useful words. Then your talk will be natural during your test.
  7. You cannot change the topic, but you can adapt it. For example, if you get the topic of a poisonous plant, you can say “I don’t know about any poisonous plants, but one plant I often see in the local park is…”. It is fine to do this. You are still following the main topic which is plants.
  8. You cannot ask for the topics to be changed. You must talk about what you are given.
  9. You do not need to follow or use all prompts. But I recommend using them because they provide good structure for your talk.

    Hello Liz, I follow you in this web and Youtube. Congratulations for the quality of the publications.
    I want to know if you will post topics too for the next months, I have my exam in June in Brazil.

    Thanks

    Natalia

    • http://Liz says

      The topics are not predictions. As explained on the page above, they are reported topics. This means when someone takes the test, they tell me what topics they had. In May, they will report new topics.

  2. http://DxbRN says

    Describe a free day at work or study that you enjoyed.

  3. http://M says

    My speaking was today, in Portugal and the cue card was about a time when a electronic device broke down

  4. http://A says

    I took the speaking test yesterday. My cue card topic was ‘An outdoor sport you woukd like to try’.

  5. http://Bipin says

    Same case here and i also went out of topic.

  6. http://S says

    hi Liz

    I gave exam today and they asked me about:

    part 1 : Work, cooking
    part 2 : An item you borrow – when, who, what , how you felt about it.
    part 3 : follow up on borrowing, habit of not returning, condition of item that was being returned etc.

    I finished too early. I feel I spoke too fast 🙁

  7. http://Violet says

    Good afternoon, Madam.
    I have a question about one of the topics reported by students. It’s sometimes given as “An effigy in your city” but in your list of current topics it’s written like “A statue in your city”. Am I supposed to talk about an ordinary statue or about an effigy that’s created for the purpose of burning it further? If the latter is the case, then I have nothing to say since we don’t practice such things in our culture. I’m a little confused 🙁 Thanks in advance.

  8. http://Pallavi%20Singla says

    Hello Liz,
    I would like to seek ur help to confirm if facial expressions and hand movements really effect our band scores in speaking.

    • Your score is based on fluency, grammar, vocab and pronunciation. Body language and hand movements are not part of the marking criteria.

  9. Hi Liz
    I would like some advice on the below speaking topics
    1. Speak about important date’s / day in ur country
    For this can we speak about more than one date or should we develop ideas about one particular day.
    2. An old person you met
    Can we talk abt saying have not met any but would like to talk about my grandfather will this be off the topic
    Please advice on these , it would be of great help

  10. Hi Liz,
    i faced for my IELTS speaking test and the topic that i received at the test was talk about

    A public or private building that recently opened in my country
    What was it,
    When this has opened,
    What has changed in there after this opened,
    What people do there

    An Liz, i don’t think that i performed well and i want to know about something as you are an instructor of IELTS.

    Liz, i have noticed that examiner marked down some points in a separate sheet which provided by the British Council, and he has put my marks as 2,3,4 (Min was 2 and Mam was 4 ). So i want to know what will be the actual results based on this mark and i really hope you will answer to this question.
    Also he asked more that 15 questions apart form the cue card at that time and he doesn’t allow me to build up my answer, even when i talk about my self. I just spoke two line and he stopped and move to next question that bothers me lots. Is this normal ?

    Please tell me what can be my result it would be a great help for me , waiting for your reply

    Thanks

    • The numbers written by the examiner have nothing to do with your score at all. You should know that your score is not even considered until the end of the test. They relate to timing and you should pay no attention at all to them.
      Part 1 has on average about 12 questions and part 3 on average about 6 – but this can vary and it also has nothing to do with your score.
      It is 100% normal for the examiner to interrupt your answers and move on to a new question. Task achievement has no place in IELTS speaking. If you produce the target language, the examiner will quickly move on. You should have been prepared for this before you entered the test room.
      If you prepare properly, there will be no surprised for you at all.

  11. http://Alexandre%20LEGRIS says

    Hi Liz, I just passed the IELTS test today and I would like to know if we can already find the answers of the Listening and Reading part on the Internet. Thanks for your help.

    • http://Liz says

      IELTS do not publish the tests or the answers. They only publish about 4 tests once a year in the form of the IELTS Cambridge Test books.

      • http://Danushka says

        Hi Liz,
        Thank you very much for sharing ,upcoming predicted cue card topics ,I just want to check have you got any sample answers for those ??
        because I am having my speaking test on tomorrow.
        Thanks.

        • You should be developing your own ideas for these topics. This means to think of your own personal experiences, your own memories, your own opinions, your own future hopes etc. This is about you and your life.

  12. http://Umang says

    Hello Liz,

    Hope you’re doing well.
    First of all, i wanna thank you for your tips and advice, in the past I’ve achieved scores of 7 in all modules.

    Today i went for Speaking test, it started really well, I noticed as I was answering, the examiner was kind of moving on to next questions, I wasn’t speaking too much, i mean i was answering in 2/3 sentences but i had more to answer and he was moving on to next ones. So I don’t know if it was normal or not.

    Now coming to my main query, In part-2 i had cue card regarding “tell me about an Intellingent person you know” & i blanked out, but still i had to speak so i started speaking about my father, and mentioned his qualities like friendliness, multitasker, having sound knowledge of things going around in country and kept on going why I thought he was intelligent. I knew it wasn’t 100% on topic but i continued for a minute. Then he asked a supplementary question in part 2 from cur card (may be because he knew I didn’t speak for that long).

    So finally my question is, will me being off topic affect my speaking score? What you do think of the points i covered in part 2 as compared to what was asked on cue card?

    I’ve my LRW tomorrow but I’m stressed about my speaking disaster.

    Again, Thanks a lot.

    • http://Liz says

      It sounds to me like you didn’t prepare properly for the speaking test. You should know that it is 100% normal for the examiner to interrupt answers and move on quickly to a new question. You should also know that being on or off topic is NOT marked in IELTS speaking. You should know that it is 100% ok to adapt the topic on the cue card and speak loosely around the main topic. Your choice to topic was 100% fine. This means without being properly prepared – everything was completely fine. So, relax and think of tomorrow – good luck! 🙂

  13. http://Christina%20Katsyubka says

    Hi, Liz!
    I’m going to take IELTS tomorrow.
    I just want to ask you something about listening:
    Can I turn to another section whenever I want or only when it is told?
    I’m really nervous about it, can you give some advice how to deal with it?

    Thanks for your advice ❤️

    • http://Liz says

      You can do what you want, but it is a waste of time doing it. When you have time to review answers, use the time to read a few questions ahead, highlight keywords and prepare paraphrases. Don’t jump sections, just read a bit ahead. Have you done full practice tests at home? You should always do about four FULL REAL IELTS tests at home before you do your actual test in the exam room. The real practice tests are 100% the same as in the exam. They are published by IELTS for candidates at use at home.

  14. http://Farsali%20Ali%20Carr says

    Hi!

    Just a question, in the part 3 of the speaking test, is the interviewer allowed to ask specific questions about politics like: What do you think about these 3 persons running for senate in the Philippines? Are you going to vote for them? Why? Are you familiar with the scandals they’re involved in?.
    To add to this, the interviewer is constantly interrupting me. He cannot wait for me to finish my answers but I always tried to end my statements as complete sentences. It was very challenging to remember his questions because he is throwing them like there is no tomorrow while, I was talking.. Is this okay? Thank you and more power!

    • http://Liz says

      IELTS is a non-political test. The examiner should NEVER ask you about your views on politics in that way. It is highly inappropriate. The only types of questions the examiner can ask about the government is, for example, “Do you think the government does enough to protect the environment?” All questions are topic based and politics is not an IELTS topic. You can complain about this. Because the test is recorded, something will have to be done about it. You can also complain to IELTS Official to take it further.

      About being interrupted, it is 100% normal for this to happen. You should be ready for this before entering the test room. Whenever you need thinking time, you can say “Could you repeat the question, please?” If the examiner is speaking too fast, you could say “Could you speak a bit slow please, I’m not feeling well today”. That is completely fine.

  15. Hello Ma’am

    I had my speaking test yesterday.

    My cue card topic was Describe a situation where someone didn’t told you the complete truth.

    I fumbled at the beginning but after that I spoke fluently. The examiner stopped me after 2 minutes but I was not able to cover my topic’s last point. Will it affect my band score ?

    • Thanks for sharing 🙂 There is no such thing as task achievement in IELTS speaking. You are marked on fluency, grammar, vocab and pronunciation – nothing else counts.

  16. http://Ana says

    • Use atleast 5-6 strong words.
    • Use atleast 1 phrase or proverb in cue card.
    • Do not stop and be fluent!

    All the Best 😉

    • http://Liz says

      Thanks for sharing 🙂 I do need to contradict one of your suggestions. It is not recommended to use a proverb in any part of the IELTS test. IELTS is a language test which tests your own personal English. Each sentence should be created by you and not come from memory. If you want to say something, use your own words to express it. The more you express things in your own way, the better.

      • http://Raksha says

        Hello Glo, Thank you for sharing your experience and suggestions. In the part 3 discussion round you mentioned above, aren’t all the three questions conveying the same meaning? How would you differentiate your answers? As I am mentally preparing the answer to this, I am running out of points. Can you please reply when you get a chance.

  19. Hey Liz,

    Today I took my speaking test, and I think it went well,

    Part 1 topic was about -> crowded places and photo taking picturesque views
    Part 2 topic was about -> A person you know who is beautiful or handsome (which you predicted in No. 8, I owe you a gratitude 😉 ).
    Part 3 topic was about nature and beauty

    Thank you Liz, you’ve been very helpful

  20. http://Kash says

  21. Hello Ma’am

    I had my speaking test
    My cue card topic was: Describe a situation when someone didn’t told you the whole truth

    I spoke on this topic very well but a fumbled a little towards the starting but after that I spoke fluently and in the end examiner stopped me after 2 minutes so I was not able to complete my topic. Will it affect my band score ?

  22. http://Nelly says

    Hello Liz
    Thank you very much for all the help you offer! I had my speaking yesterday and would like to share the topics!
    Part1: where I lived, how long i’ve Lived there, what I like about the place, what i’d Like to change about the place, do I think people’s choice of films is affected by the actors involved, do people in my country watch films with international actors, have I met any film star in real life?

    Part3: Comparing how people got news in the past and present, is the electronic media a trusted source, do the different age groups all have interest in the same kinds of news, why do some people still wait to hear/read news from tv/radio/newspaper although they have electronic media?
    I just hope to get a good band score, I have the written part on Saturday!

  23. http://Sundar says

    Suppose say I don’t like or don’t relate to a particular topic, can I ask for an alternate one?
    For example, let’s take the topic, ” A sport on TV that you would like to try?
    Now, I don’t like to play or watch any kind of sport, can I ask for another topic

    • http://Liz says

      No you can’t ask to change the topic. If you don’t like sport, you can talk about why you don’t like and why other people do like it. You can talk about how sports have changed and how people’s views to them have changed. You can talk about your past experiences with sport when you were a child. You can talk about how you would approach the topic of sports if you had a child of your own. There is lots to talk about even if you don’t play sport.

      • http://Sundar says

        So is it fine to go off topic? instead of talking about the sport that I’d like to play, I can answer why I don’t like sports at all. Won’t I be penalized for going off topic, like in the writing section.

        • It is fine for part 2. There is no score for being on or off topic in speaking. But if the examiner thinks you changed topic from sport to weather because you prepared for the topic of weather, your answer could be invalid.

  24. http://SAI%20NAGA%20MANOJ says

    Hi, I recently completed my speaking exam last month.
    I got a cue card to describe how i would spend a leisure time?

    • http://Farrukh%20Safdar says

  25. http://Vel%20Tod says

    Hello, thank you for your helpful website. My speaking part just passed and the questions were about patience, about my study or my job and the part 2 was to tell about a situation recently when I had to change my plans, then the last part was about plans and planning a city. Good luck to everybody!

  26. http://Violet says

    Hello.
    I’ve recently come across this amazing website and I really love it! Thank you very much, Madam, for everything you post here, it’s really helpful!
    I’d like to ask you a question about the Speaking Section (Part 2). Do you think it’s important to prepare ideas for the cue cards from Cambridge IELTS books (3-11) or it’s better to concentrate on the common topics + recent questions from your website? Thank you in advance 🙂

  27. http://John says

    Hello,

  30. Hey Liz,
    how do examiner grade if we speak fluently but off the topic ?

    • http://Liz says

      If you choose to speak off topic because you want to change the topic, you might get a very very low score. You cannot change the topic. However, it is fine to add detail that is not asked for to extend your answer such as your opinions or comparisons etc, particularly in part 2.

  31. http://zena says

    Hi liz
    I took my speaking exam on 18 jan.

    Part 3: questions about freetime and job

  32. http://Sara says

    An important plant, flower or tree of your country.
    Q what is it?
    Q where it seen easily?
    Q why is it important?

  33. http://Dana%20loay says

    Hi lez my speaking test was 18 jan and the first question the examiner asked was if i work or study i explained that i have graduated fron university 6 years ago and now i dont work i am a housewife then he moved to another topic was my answer proper or should i have said that i am working something or what?

    • http://Liz says

      You answered correctly. If the person does not work and does not currently study, the examiner will change the topic. It is the only time that it happens in the test. The examiner chooses the topic, not you.

    Hi Liz

    I had the test in December and my part two topic was about a good law in my country, which I found really hard to answer because if my country had good laws I wouldn’t try to emigrate from it.

    I had to retake the test cause I need 8 in each skill.

    Cheers,

    • http://Liz says

      As long as you speak close to your topic it’s fine. If you can’t speak about a good law, you explain to the examiner at the start of your talk and you continue to talk about a bad law in your country or a law that you would like to see in your country. You can still get band 9 doing that.

      • http://Kitty says

        Even I got same question on January 12th and I attempted the exam with positive energy but they gave me 4.5 band. Can you please tell how to score 6.5 in speaking.

        • You are marked on the language you produce. Your ideas are not marked and task achievement is not marked. If you want a higher score, you need to deliver a better level of English with a broader range. You need to show the ability to speak in different tenses. Offer a comparison – offer a second conditional statement. Example in detail because descriptions offer more language. etc etc

  42. Hi Liz,

    Dear Liz,

    Hope you are doing good ?

    I would highly appreciate if you can kindly provide your inputs on the below queries :

    1. In Reading and Listening , which sections have questions that appear in the same order as the passage ?
    2. In Reading and Listening , which of the particular sections should we attempt first in order to maximize our scores in respective sections ?

    I have been searching for an answer on the above queries for a while now and getting different versions on various websites.

    Your kind response on the same will be very highly appreciated.

    Best Regards,
    Ankit Prakash

    Hi liz
    I send my wt1 academic for a correction service. One of the comments were that if i want a higher score i need to write what was the reason for the increase-make an assumption and extend the information from the graph… Is that correct? Because i thought i shouldnt add any information not relevant or not given and stick to the facts… Would appriciate your comment since my writing task is on 17.1.. And I’m a bit Confused😕

    • http://Liz says

      You are NOT allowed to give your opinions or try to guess the reasons for information. Task 1 is not an essay, it is a factual report based on what you see. If you can’t see it, you can’t write it.

    Today was my speaking exam. My cue card topic was health related. in part one national holidays , receiving emails this kind of questions the examiner asked me… He was asking me questions one after another constantly… it was really stressful experience though I tried to smile all the time.
    Thank you.

    • http://Liz says

      It is 100% normal that the examiner will ask one question after another without a break or pause. Did you expect something different? This is standard procedure in IELTS speaking.
