Over to you

Here is a sample IELTS Speaking Part 2 task. Practise answering it – give yourself one minute to prepare, then speak for two minutes.

You can record your spoken response to the task using Vocaroo or SpeakPipe. You can add a link to your recording in the comments below.

We won’t be able to listen to everyone’s examples, but make sure you look at our Educators’ comments and see if they could apply to you too. You can also comment on other people’s examples.
