IELTS SPEAKING TIPS:

How to Answer Interview Questions Accurately and Effectively

The Speaking Module of the IELTS consists of three parts. Let's look at part 1: The Interview


Part 1
You will need to answer general questions about yourself, your homes/families, your jobs/studies, your interests, and a range of familiar topic areas in four to five minutes.

Exhausting the Possibilities
Part 1 will ask basic questions. There are only so many possible basic questions that can be asked about someone. You can easily be prepared for every possibility. Go through and write down all the possibilities and a good answer for each. When you’re asked about your family, don’t have to struggle to come up with descriptions for your family members. Practice ahead of time and know what you’re going to say. Right now as you’re reading this, stop and take a minute to answer each of these following questions. If you were asked these in an interview, what would you say?

  1. Please describe yourself.
  2. Please describe your family.
  3. Please describe your home.
  4. Please describe some of your interests.
  5. Please describe your job.
  6. Please describe your studies

This is important practice. Make sure that you can spend a minute or so answering each of these questions without having to take time to think of a good response. These are basic questions and you should have your basic answers ready.
