        Hello liz
        when I am speaking my que card question in the middle the examiner stopped me so I didn’t answer complete que card question does it effect my band score.

        • The examiner cannot stop you in the middle of part 2 before 2 mins have passed. The examiner will stop you after 2 mins have passed. No one is allowed more than 2 mins for their talk.

  2. Hello Liz,
    Thank you for guidance. Today I had my computer based exam .
    Writing task 1:
    Write a letter to a friend mentioning that the product which you borrowed from his/ her got accidentally damaged

    Writing task 2
    Why do students prefer doing part time jobs during their studies.
    Do you think this has more advantages or more disadvantages?

    For writing task 2, i mentioned as it has more benefits over drawbacks and dedicated an extra paragraph for disadvantages.Even though it is of 2 liner i am worried whether
    it will reduce my score.
    Please reply.

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ When you explain that the advantages are more and the disadvantages are less – it would mean two body paragraphs. All body paragraphs must be equal in length. There is a limit on the band score for Task Response if some ideas are more developed than others. Take a look at this page: https://ieltsliz.com/ielts-writing-task-2-band-scores-5-to-8/

      • Thanks Liz.
        Fingers crossed.I am awating for my results. Hope I won’t be penalised much for this.Will that be only in task response or over all task score?

    • hello, Mrs vim is it possible for you to post the writing task 1 in detail I,e what were the bullet point questions that were given in the exam?

        B.how it got damaged
        C. What would you do from your end

  4. Hi Liz! Hi everyone! I took my Academic IELTS exam yesterday, 13th of June. These were the following topics that I can remember:

    Listening:
    Completing sentences exercises
    Listening map
    A lecture about weapons in the past

    Reading:
    A passage about Green roofs with T, F, NG questions
    How well do we concentrate with multiple choices and matching titles questions

    Writing:
    Task 1- Bar chart about Car ownership from 1971 to 2001
    Task 2:
    In many countries, women and men are working full-time. It is therefore, logical for women and men to share household works.
    To what extent do you agree or disagree?
    Give relevant examples.

    • For those having difficulty in Reading and Writing, I suggest that you start to answer the last parts (Last passage in Reading and Task 2 in Writing) because they usually require more time and this will save you from rushing to finish the exam. Furthermore in Writing tasks, a day before my exam, I wrote a model answer in the sample ielts paper, which I got from Liz’ page to know how many lines I need to fill in the actual exam. I thought that it will guide me in estimating the number of words I’m writing without counting. I didn’t counted my written words because I almost consumed half of the back part in writing task 2 and my penmanship is small. I’m hoping to get a good band score. Thank you Liz for your valuable page. It’s the only material I used reviewing for the exam.

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

  5. Hi Liz,

    First of all, thank you very much for your valuable tips and lessons. Those were really helpful to me when preparing for my exam in a very short time. I had my IELTS Academic on June 12th. Given below are the questions I got (what I remember now :)).
    Writing Task 1 – A diagram with 2 bar charts regarding average time spending on 2 leisure activities (reading & listening to songs) based on different age groups.
    Writing Task 2 – Discuss both views essay on “Libraries are a waste of resources and money and computers can be used to replace them”. Though I’m not exactly sure about the wording, it was the topic.

    Speaking
    Task 1 – About my house, rooms, favorite room, throwing trash
    Task 2 – About an advice I’ve given to someone

    However, I was unable to complete my 2nd paragraph of the essay (actually the last sentence of it) due to poor time management. I was able to write the conclusion. Word count was enough (about 200 for task 1 and 270 for task 2). Now I’m worried about the impact of not completing the 2nd para :(.

    Thanks again.
    Regards,

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ I’m glad you wrote the conclusion. Missing one line in a body paragraph means that it will affect the supporting points for that paragraph. This is a much less problematic issue than missing a conclusion. There is no way to know how this will impact your score, but whatever impact it has, it will only affect one marking criteria out of four.

  6. Dear Liz,
    I took my computer-delivered General exam on 8th June. Your tips and practice questions are quite helpful. I enjoyed learning.
    Here are questions for the Speaking section.
    Part 1
    What is your name?
    Where are you from?
    Do you stay in an apartment or house?
    Which room do you like the most?
    Do you often use social websites? Why?
    What are the advantages of social websites?
    Is it a good idea for people to spend more time on social websites?
    Would you like to spend more time on social websites? Why?
    How do you feel when you see people throwing rubbish on the street?
    What do you think why people throw rubbish on the streets?
    Do you think transportation on the streets damages environment? Why?
    Which development is required in transport facilities in your country?
    Part 2
    Describe an occasion when the vehicle you took broke down during your travel.
    You should say:
    Where were you going
    Who you were with
    How you felt it
    Also, explain how long did it take to repair the vehicle
    Part 3
    Which kind of transport is famous in your country?
    Do younger people prefer public transport most or older people?
    How comfort of people walking on the street can be increased?
    There were a few questions more based on my answer to previous questions.

    Writing Task 1
    You recently travelled on a train which arrived very late and you faced many problems. Write a letter to the owner of the company.
    Include the below points:
    1. Where were you going
    2. What problems did you face?
    3. What action would you like the owner to take?

    Task 2:
    Some people think that money is the best gift for teenagers. Others disagree.
    Discuss both these views and give your opinion.

    My experience for the computer-delivered test:
    1. The online timer shows only minutes and not seconds. Hence I stopped my editing in the last 1 minute. The screen automatically submits questions when time is up.
    2. There is a highlight and notes feature available in the Reading section where we can highlight keywords. This makes easy to locate answers for lengthy paragraphs.
    3. In my test, all reading passages were quite lengthy. Hence I just scanned passages for locating answers.
    4. I ran out of time for writing and couldn’t get time for reviewing typo errors, spelling and punctuation. I mainly focused on covering the points and my thought process.
    5. In the speaking section, I was fluent in part 1 and 2 but lost fluency in part 3 as it made me think a lot while answering.
    6. I prepared for this test in 5 weeks.

    Thank you Liz for your wonderful study materials and All the best for other learners for their exam.

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ Also a big thank you for sharing your experience of the computer based test πŸ™‚

    • Hey! Great to hear about your experience with CD IELTS. You apparently was served by lazy staff because they should have told you if you place a mouse pointer on timer then you will see minutes and seconds you have.

        I think i m a confident speaker but my examiner was kind of rude , he never looked at me while i was speaking and interuppted me a lot …like i was not even able to say complete answers cuz of that , Last time when i appeared for this exam my examiner was really a sweet lad7y so probably i was expecting the same this time but my bad ! I hope he gives me good score though ! 😊

        • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ Not all examiners behave in the same way. It is 100% normal to be interrupted in your answers. It is a natural part of the speaking test and everyone should be ready for it. It is not something to be worried about and doesn’t affect your score – but if you are not prepared, it might affect your confidence. However, it is not normal or polite for the examiner to avoid eye contact. The examiner should always have positive body language. Unfortunately, some examiners are overworked. I wish you lots of luck with your results πŸ™‚

  15. Liz,
    Thank you so much for such an incredible personal commitment to those who you have never met!
    I have been preping for my AE and using your page quite often these days, and the other day I was told that in order to secure myself during the writing, I can leave a blank line after each line, so I can go back and make corrections, or insertions in case any good idea pops into my mind during the proofreading. My question is: won’t be I penalized if I follow this strategy? If yes, what could you recommend to ensure that I can still go back and make changes without having to erase the entire paragraph. I wouldn’t want to jeopardize my score.
    Thanks in advance!

    • I don’t usually answer comments on this page, but I will in this case because it will help everyone. You certainly should not do that. It will make it really hard for the examiner to see your paragraphs clearly and this could have a very negative impact on your score. If you plan your essay properly, you should not need to make so many corrections. If you need to change some words, just put a strong cross through them and write them again above – neatly, so that the examiner can easily see what you have written. See this page for all my free lessons, model essays and tips: https://ieltsliz.com/ielts-writing-task-2/

  20. Hi Liz

    Need your help.

    I forget to write β€œYours sincerely; XYZ Name” at the end of writing task 1 in GT IDP.

    How much will it impact on my scoring?

    Will that mean there is no chance for Band 7?

    • Missing that from your letter does not dictate your final score for writing. But it will have a negative impact on your score for Task Achievement which is 25% of your writing task 1 score.

  21. Hello Liz,
    I took my exam on June 1st. Last time I wrote IELTS i got 8 overall, but got only 6.5 in writing. This time i prepared using all your videos and material and practised a lot.I bought your advanced writing -100 essay ideas which were also extremely helpful for speaking part 3 .The recent questions section helped me a lot, so I thought I should contribute too. I have a question for you, I was very nervous during my first question and fumbled a lot and had gaps, but by the time I got further I really improved and spoke fluently. Will one question affect my score a lot ? Do reply if possible. Anyways, these are the questions:
    – do you work/study
    – do you like your work?
    – how much time do you spend working
    – what do you think would make your work easier?
    – Are there a lot of public holidays in your country?
    -which is your favourite holiday?
    – what do you do on a public holiday ?
    – Do you think modern technology will help in crime reduction ?
    – Why do you think people are not accurate when they act as witnesses ?
    Part 2 :
    Talk about an instance where someone you know hid a truth from you, who was it ? what did he/she say ? How did you feel?
    follow up Q: Do you think you would have told the truth in that person s place
    Part 3 : lots of questions about honesty
    Do you think honesty is important?
    Do people expect public figures to be honest?
    Should children be taught to be honest ?
    Do you think honesty is more important than any other virtue?
    WRITING:
    part1 : line graphs about male and female prisoners in a European country between 1911 to 2001.
    Part 2 : Some people think that books should be stopped in school and that videos, films and computers should be used instead.To what extent do you agree ?

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ Examiners are trained and experienced people when it comes to language production and testing. They know that people are often nervous at the beginning which is one of the reasons that the questions are quite simple in part 1 – it gives people a chance to relax and get used to the test. Your score is not based on your performance in each part, it is based on your overall performance and what your “real level” of English is. If you were nervous in part 1, but you felt better in part 2 and 3 – that will show and will be taken into account. The test is aimed at assessing your actual level of English. If your English in part 2 and 3 was band 8, you can’t be given less because you were nervous in part 1. Try not to worry. Lets wait for your results and I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you πŸ™‚

    W2- more and more developing countries are expanding their tourist industries. Why is this? Is it a positive development?
    Speaking – general questions about where I live, house or apartment?
    Questions related to cousins and relatives.
    Cue card – talk about a person who encouraged you?

    From my own experience, I have found that it is very important to manage your time especially in reading and writing. Otherwise all of your hard work will be wasted.

    Finally, I want to say thank you Liz. Your lessons are quite helpful:)

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ You are absolutely correct – time management is essential in reading and writing. Glad you lessons were useful πŸ™‚ Good luck with your results πŸ™‚

  26. Vishnupriya Panchal says

    Hello Liz,
    My husband and I sat for our test on 1 June, 2019 in Surat, India. We had a truly terrifying experience, section 4 of our Listening test was missing from the CD given to the test centre. 400+ candidates were taking the test besides the two of us. We were told to continue with the Reading & Writing sections while the team tries to resolve the issue in our Listening section.
    All of us were hoping, after 6 gruelling hours of waiting and writing the test, that we’d have just the one part of Listening to complete. However, when we finsihed our Writing test, the invigilators asked us to take the entire Listening test again as there was a “technical error” and this issue was faced by test centres all over India!
    Though we had not choice since the invigilators said they have been instructed by IELTS to make the candidates re-appear for the Listening part of the test, we felt utterly flabbergasted with the overall experience with our IELTS test. Neither could we focus on our Reading and Writing test, nor could we do justice to our second Listening test.
    Although I personally went and spoke to the highest authority present at the venue, my words fell on deaf ears, all they could respond is, “Please raise your concerns to the Customer Care. Our hands are tied!” They even made us erase the answers we had written on our original Listening answer sheet to utilise the same for the new test.
    I have posted this to know if others in India have faced a similar issue on the IELTS test dated 1st June, 2019 and also as a reference to all the test takers in India, such things do happen.. So be prepared!
    Furthermore, I was wondering if you (Liz) could guide us in taking action and bringing this to the notice of the relavent authorities at the British Council and/or IDP.
    Eagerly awaiting your response.
    Warm regards,
    Vishnupriya

    • I’m really shocked to hear about your experience. Awful! If you wish to take it further, you could try IELTS Official and go through official channels. IDP and BC are both part owners of IELTS along with Cambridge – so go to IELTS Official which is the main company – post on their FB page – in public – and by email – in fact any possible method of communication. However, I rarely hear about IELTS “doing the right thing” which would be to give everyone a free test and let them choose which test results to use. When equipment fails in the IELTS test, they seem to expect candidates to struggle on, often causing them hours of extra waiting and stress, which all affects their performance – not acceptable. I wish you luck with your complaint – I hope you let us all know if you got a satisfactory result from the complaint – it would be nice to know if IELTS “do the right thing”!!

      • ankit gupta says

        Same with us in Jaipur. We did it again

      • Amandeep Kaur says

        Same happened here in Mississauga, canada. Listening CD stopped playing after section 2. They took the booklets back and gave us reading. After reading they played listening from section 3. There no time to read the question and the mind was totally blank after reading. I almost missed section 3. When few of us complained then they were making weird faces like we are doing wrong by complaining about it.

    • Elizabeth Thomas says

      I took the exam from Bangalore, India on 1st June 2019. We did not have any issues here

    • Same issue at listening at anand, Gujarat,India πŸ˜‘

    • Navjot singh says

      Same problem in patiala,india we should take action against British councils because its enhance our stress

      The same happened in Hyderabad,The should give us grace marks for all the stress!

  31. Hi Liz,
    I took my IELTS ACADEMIC test today June 01 2019
    Writing Task 1: The table gives information about the salaries of high school teachers in 5 countries ( Australia, Korea, Japan, Denmark, Luxembourg).The table consisted of of the starting salary, salary after 15 years, maximum salary and number of years to achieve the maximum salary.
    Writing task 2: Many developing countries are expanding the tourist industry.
    Why do you think so?
    Is this a positive development?
    Sorry I can’t recall the listening and reading test as I did them in a rash. As for the listening test, there was an echo in the room and it was not able to hear the recording clearly, I told one of the exam invigilators, but she said that she can do nothing about it. Also during the fourth section one of the candidates that was sitting in the same row as me, started coughing and I couldn’t hear the answers of some of the questions. I was really disappointed at the end of the test and I’ve raised a complain about it, so I was wondering if that is a valid complain and what are they going to do about it?

    Thank you so much Liz for the useful content it really helped me prepare for the test.

    Regards,
    D

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ Unfortunately, I’m not sure what can be done. They can’t alter your score and it is unlikely they will give you another test. I rarely hear of IELTS tackling customer complaints in a proactive way – they certainly never seem to learn from bad customer experiences and also don’t seem to change their test procedures. My advice is if you don’t get the score you expected for the listening test, take the test again in a test centre that uses headphones. This is something all people should check before booking their test at a particular test centre.

  34. I had my speaking test on 30.05 the questions were :
    do you work or study?
    What do you do exactly?
    Do you like your job?
    Garbage topic: what do you think about people littering the streets instead of using the wastebaskets? Something about resycling (do you participate in it?) do you help maintaining the streets tidy?
    Perfumes: do you like perfumes? What type of perfumes do you like? Would you ever buy a perfume as a gift?

    Second part: describe a situation when the vehicle you were in completely broke. Cue card questions were: who you were with, where were you going, I don’t remember the third, and the outcome and consequences of the situation.

    Third part was about regular public transport in your country, how should the government develop transport system, do you agree that it should concentrate more on the environmental impact of the transport, do you think zebras for pedestrians crossing the streets are safe enough.

    I was speaking pretty confident and fluent at the beginning but I totally lost my concentration when the test reached the third part, and I used several local words while speaking. How bad that is?

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ It all really depends on how well the examiner could follow what you said. Also don’t forget that part 3 is not marked separately – your score is based on your overall performance. This means individual questions won’t have a big impact. However, part 3 is usually the time to showcase broader language skills so if you struggled in that part, it might have an effect on the language you produced. There is no predicting a score for speaking – it really depends on your fluency, grammar, vocab and pron from start to finish. Good luck with your results πŸ™‚

  35. Liz your content is exquisite and particularly this trend is awesome for ielts test takers.

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ Your score is based on what you say, not on what you understand. This means it doesn’t matter if you didn’t understand the question or you misunderstood it. Whatever English words you produce will decide your score. There are no right or wrong answers. Even the answer “I haven’t got a clue about that but I think …” is a great answer because it shows high level English. So, your score for speaking will depend on the level of English you spoke during your test – nothing else matters πŸ™‚

    Will it affect my score?

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ If the examiner interrupts or not is the examiner’s choice – it is not about your score. Your score is not based on how many questions you answered or if the examiner interrupted or not – it is based on the fluency, grammar, vocab and pron you used throughout the whole test.

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ In speaking part 2, it is often a good time to plan the range of grammar you will use. This is because in part 1 and part 3 you do not have thinking time or planning time. However, your score for grammar is not decided only by part 2 – it is based on your entire performance throughout the whole test. Grammar only counts for 25% of your final speaking marks. Band 5 = frequent errors which cause difficulty for the reader. Band 6 = some errors, particularly with complex grammar, but the meaning is clear.
      Glad you have enjoyed using my site πŸ™‚ It’s nice to know I have helped people. Good luck with your results πŸ™‚

      • Hello Liz.
        I would like to thank you for your great job. Your new e-book with ideas for essays is a real treasure. It should cost much more! This was a pity that I got it just a week before my exam. If you don’t mind, let me ask you to add a little to the book. It would be very useful if after every topic in the book such as Education or something you add a list of the possible task 2 for the same topic. Yes, the general topics are already on your website and you can map them easily to e-book’s topics, but it would be very useful to develop your critical thinking and give topics a little bit different than the examples in your book. For example, in your book now there is an item about cause and solution for some problems, but in the task for this topic could be 2-question essay. It should stimulate people to modify and rephrase your ideas from the e-book, not just “copy and paste”. Thanks a million again, you are the best.

        • I understand your points. However, the free list of 100 IELTS essay questions (divided into common topics) are linked in free Useful Links Page that comes with the e-book. The link is there to be used. Also the free video lesson that comes with the e-book explains about adapting the ideas to suit the essay question. So, to be honest, it is unlikely I’ll be adding more to the book. In some ways, IELTS is endless – there is always more than could be added. I do appreciate your feedback though – it’s always useful for me to hear. And I’m very glad you like the e-book πŸ™‚

  44. Hello Everyone!, i attended my speaking and listening test on 24th may 2019

    4. How people get motivated?
    5. Why some people seem to be more motivated than others?
    6. How people can sustain motivation for long term given there are many internal/external factors that can affect them?

    In Part 3, I didn’t answer some questions straight to the point and sometimes given a different answer in the same context. How it would affect my score? I appreciate your help.

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ Your score is based on your overall performance based on fluency, grammar, vocab and pron. This means you can’t predict how your score is influenced by just one or two questions unless the entire speaking test is heard. Good luck with your results πŸ™‚

    • Kanika Mehra says

      Hi liz ,. I did not understand thelast question of part 3 posted by SHY please can you explain about it.

      • Manpreet Kaur says

        According to me ..
        Last question means How to maintain your enthusiasm which you have got due to motivation.. Because there are a number of factors which can demotivate you.. So how to get rid of the negative effect of deteriorating factors and how to focus on motivational factor only.. 😊

  46. May 23 , 2019

    I had a test (AC)

    Writing task 1
    – 3 bar charts about employment rate in agriculture , industry and services in three countries (A,B,C) from between 1980 and 2020

    Task 2
    There are fewer controls on the designs and construction of home and office buildings. So , people can build them whatever they like
    Do the advantages of this outweigh the disadvantages ?

    Speaking
    Part 1
    – Do you work or study ?
    – Social network topics (Frequency of usage , Pros and Cons)
    – Rubbish and garbage topics

    Part 2
    Describe a person who speaks foreign language well
    and then there was a following question
    – Do you learn any other foreign languages (except English) ?

    Part 3 (I can’t remember the questions exactly but the questions were about these)
    – Do you think it is possible to speak like a native ?
    – Benefits of studying languages in jobs/careers opportunity
    – To learn new languages , which one is harder between writing and speaking ?
    – Is it possible to use English as a global language ? I said no , and I explain why
    and then there was a following question
    – Which language you think it will be (instead of English) ?

    I think I didn’t speak well in my Speaking test because of being worried.
    I use few linking words : ( I also think that the examiner ask me lots of questions (But the questions were tougher) because maybe I give the answers too short (Just 2-3 sentences per questions).
    Do this will affect my scores ?
    Thanks

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ I’m not sure why you were thinking about linking words in your speaking test. The IELTS speaking is not marked in the same way as IELTS writing. While it is normal to use some linking words in speaking (and/but/because/so), it is not vital to use a range. I’m sure you used the linking words I mentioned. It is fine to repeat them again and again in speaking. Your speaking score will be based on the language you produced and the accuracy of the language you produced. Good luck πŸ™‚

  52. Hi Liz,
    Thanks for your help.

    Today, on 22 May I had speaking test.
    Section 1:-
    1.About my Hometown?
    2.Are you studying or Working?
    3.About street markets?
    4.Do you share your mobile with others?

    Section 2:-
    Cue card:-You invited someone to have meal/lunch/dinner at your home?

    Section 3:-
    1.In the future, where people will be treated? Restaurant or home?
    2.Where will be more advantages to treat someone you know? Restaurant or Home?

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

      • Hi Liz,
        If you are presented with a question like Man has above in his Section 3, how do you go about it knowing that treat has 2 meanings? Treat could be “treat a sickness” or “provide someone with food or drink or entertainment”. The options of restaurant or home gives a cue that it might be the second meeting but could it also be a trick question? Does it not matter seeing that the Speaking section tests vocabulary and pronunciation? Is it okay to spot the different meanings in your response or ask the examiner which one he means?

        • You need to remember that the questions posted are written by candidates based on their memory and on their level of English. The question is not actually written with accuracy which is why you don’t understand. The examiner would not ask the question using those words. If there is ever a time (in part 3) when you don’t understand, you can say to the examiner “Can you explain what you mean?”

  53. I had my speaking test today
    Speaking questions as far I remember;

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ There are only 3 parts to IELTS speaking. Your part 3 and 4 mentioned above are the same part. Part 1 is mostly about you and your country. Part 2 is mostly about you. But part 3 is where you talk about world issues and keep away from personal stories – this is something you need to prepare for. The examiner was trying to help guide you, but in your confusion, you didn’t understand. It is not possible to predict your score as it is based on fluency, grammar, vocab and pron – so you will need to wait for you results to see how you did. Good luck! πŸ™‚

    • Muhammad Saeed says

      I need one clarification: We can’t ask examiner to repeat question In speaking test part 1 but I asked one because I did not understand either he was asking about enjoying weather outside or inside the county. Will it affect my score?

      • It is 100% fine to ask the examiner to repeat the question in part 1. However, they can’t explain it in part 1, they can only repeat it. In part 3, you can ask them to explain it.

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

      • Neha khan says

        Hi Liz, thank you so much for being a great help. I just had my speaking exam and I am quite worried. Actually, I couldn’t cover the last question of the cue card and I stopped answering 10 seconds early. Is this a major mistake?

        • There are no questions on the cue card. There are prompts which are guidelines that you do not need to use if you don’t want to. Fluency is not measured in seconds and is based on your performance in all parts, not just part 2. I see nothing to worry about. Your score will be based on your language performance.

    • I’m glad you specified that you took the “Computer-delivered test”. No one does it. I wish everyone do it.

  59. Hi Liz,
    First of all I would like to say thank you for your site,it’s been a useful tool for my review. More power to you!

    Your preparatory material helped me to get a gist of the test and also enabled me to be confident. Listening and reading were quite easy. Though I didn’t have much time for writing I managed to complete both tasks with the required details. Speaking was my main concern, as I get nervous during interviews. During the speaking part, there was some technical problem with the recorder so I had few minutes to relax. Moreover, the examiner was friendly and I felt like I was having a smooth conversation with her as the test progressed. I’m so grateful for your website. You are an excellent teacher! God bless!

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ Sounds like you had a good speaking test – good luck with your results πŸ™‚ Glad you found my preparation materials useful.

    • I also got same questions for Writing and speaking

  61. Vishnupriya says

    Hi Liz,
    Hope you’re well.
    I’d like to know if we can switch to the next section of the test once we’re done with the previous section and have time to spare.
    For example, if I complete the Listening section of the examination and do not want to use the allocated time of 10 minutes to transfer my answers to the answer sheet, can I then utilize those 10 minutes to begin the Reading section instead?
    I have the same query if I have time to spare between the Reading and Writing sections of the test.
    Look forward to your reply.

    • I don’t normally answer questions on this page, but I will for you because I think it will help others. You have one hour for the reading test and one hour for the writing test. This is fixed. All candidates around the world have one hour for reading and writing – it is equal for everyone. If you finish reading early, you must sit and wait for the hour to finish. Then everyone will start the writing test at the same time and everyone will be given one hour.

      • Vishnupriya says

        I really appreciate your response to my query, Liz! Thank you for making an exception to address my doubt, this will help me prepare better for my test on 1st June.
        I’d also like to thank you on behalf of all the students who benefit from the content on your website and in your videos.
        Best wishes,

    Best Regards,

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ It’s best to review all common topics for IELTS writing: https://ieltsliz.com/100-ielts-essay-questions/. Mostly practice the structure, ideas and supporting points rather than full essays. Just a few full essays is enough. Make sure you practice two full essays under exam conditions. Getting used to concentrating for 2 hours and 40mins is essential. Good luck!!

    Writing Task 2
    Some people think to learn a secondary language well it is necessary to live in a country which that language is spoken.

    What is your opinion about this?

    I did the CBT exam for the first time. Unfortunately, I missed my focus in the listening part 3 for few seconds because I couldn’t find the next question. It was a silly mistake because I was clicking the next question button on the bottom right corner rather than scrolling down. I lost focus for that entire section and had to guess answers for all 5 questions in that part. When doing paper-based exam I was able to achieve 8.5 for listening but this time I’m not sure whether I get even 6. Sad

    Anyway, Thanks Liz a lot for all the great tips and sharing valuable information. Your essay package is extremely useful. I highly recommend that for those who need to improve your writing.

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ That’s such a shame about your listening test. It’s really easy to lose your place in the recording. Hopefully, your guessed answers might be correct. Fingers crossed πŸ™‚ Glad you like my Advanced lessons πŸ™‚

  69. Hello Liz, i’m one of the study who use your strategies and followed your advices or tips. I couldn’t thank you enough for this. Well, I took my ielts exam on 19/05/2019 (ACADEMIC) but to be honest, I cannot remember the questions 100% correctly.

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ Which questions did you need help with? The examiner doesn’t mark your ideas at all in IELTS speaking. Even if you have no idea and said “Actually, I haven’t got a clue. I’ve never thought about ……..”, you would still get a mark for the use of idiomatic language “have a clue”.

  75. Hi Liz,

    I took my IELTS GT exam on 11th May. Following were the speaking topics asked during the test. The examiner was smiling throughout the test. It really motivated me to be comfortable and communicate my ideas naturally. I hope I didn’t get carried away during the test.

    Part 1:
    Job
    About sky watching- do you like to watch the sky? when- in the day or at night? Is there any place where you like to watch the sky?
    Keeping secrets- Do you think that you should share everything with everyone? Why?
    I don’t remember the questions asked about this topic. Sorry.

    Part 2:
    Talk about a job that your grandparents did.
    what was the job
    was it the only job they had
    would you like to do this type of job

    part 3:
    do you know any person who still does this type of work?
    Is there any job which requires a higher salary? Why?

    ## My doubt here is related to the answer that I gave- Job that deserves a higher salary is of a call center executive. I certainly provided ample arguments to support my answer. However, I was asked to name one more profession/occupation to which I replied, the job of a journalist. Since these people have to go out and interview people irrespective of the outside conditions. I’m not sure if that would count, though I explained enough.

    Should companies invest in training their employees? what will be the benefits?

    Also, If you could kindly help me to let me know the correct answer to the below questions which I got in my reading test.

    Q- The museum has a collection of shoes worldwide. (t/f/ng)
    Not able to recall much. But, a close paraphrased info from the text: The museum displays a collection of shoes. It represented historical and cultural values from around the world.

    Q- Adults can pay less on a specific day of the week.
    Info- Adults- $20 Seniors- $15 Children- $10 Infants- $5
    Pay-less Thursdays
    To encourage people to visit the museum more often, you can visit here on every Thursday of the week and pay less than the actual ticket price. (paraphrased and tried to put the meaning of what was stated in the text in the test as much as I could.)

    I appreciate your kind services for the IELTS aspirants. Also, your website is truly beneficial.

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ Every question in the IELTS Speaking test is a chance to show your English. You are not being marked on your ideas at all. Ideas are not marked in IELTS speaking. So, your marks would be based only on your fluency, grammar, vocab and pron. For anyone else taking the test soon, examples of jobs that should get a higher salary can be doctors and nurses – they provide a vital service to the community and often work very long hours – particularly nurses who are often very underpaid.
      For your reading questions, it is not possible to comment unless I see the precise wording of both questions and passage.
      Good luck with your results πŸ™‚
