IELTS Speaking Parts Two and Three on friends

IELTS Speaking Part Two Friend

Student A- Examiner

Read out the sentences below to your partner. Don’t give your partner their worksheet until you finish speaking:

“Now I’d like you to give a presentation for one or two minutes on the topic I will give you. First you have one minute to prepare what you are going to say. You can make notes to help you. This is your topic sheet” (Hand over “Student B- candidate” sheet now).

Describe a friend who has played an important part in your life. 

You should say:

how you met this person

how long you have known them

the kind of thing you do or did with them

And explain why they have been important in your life

 

                                         

 

After a maximum of one minute, interrupt the preparation by saying something like “Please start speaking now”.

 

If the candidate speaks for less than one minute, wait silently and gesture that they should continue.

If the candidate speaks for between 1 and 2 minutes and stops speaking, ask them one more question about what they said (see below).

If the candidate continues speaking for more than 2 minutes interrupt them using gestures/ taking back the question sheet etc. and ask them a question about what they said (see below).

 

When they have finished speaking or their time is up, ask the candidate one more question about what they have just said that is not on the worksheet, e.g.

“You said…. Why do you think that?” or

“You said… Do you also think…?” “Why/ why not?”

IELTS Speaking Part Three- Friendship

Choose any questions from the list below, or ask other questions depending on what your partner says

If they don’t understand any of the questions, ask the same question again more slowly. If they still don’t understand, explain the question in easier English. Because you need to read out and explain the questions below, make sure you understand and can pronounce all the questions before you start the test.

“Generally, are friends or family more important to people your age?”

“Who do people tend to speak to about their personal problems?”

“What do you think the most important quality in a friend is?”

“Do you have any friends now from when you were very young?”

“Do you think it is possible for men and women to be just good friends?”

“Do you think it is better to have a few good friends or many different friendships?”

“For you, what is the difference between a friend and an acquaintance?”

“Do you think teachers should try to be a friend to their students, or should they keep a distance?”

“Can you give me some examples of what a friend could do that would make you break off the friendship?”

“Would you say anyone in your family is also your friend?”

“Which friends you have now do you think will continue to be your friend when you are much older?” (“Why do you think so?”)

“Do you think you will have more friends or less friends as you get older?”

    Some IELTS questions in speaking require a candidate’s profound knowledge and experience. If you are not sophisticated enough, you can not answer them straight away, which is a great disadvantage to you in this kind of test For example, ” What are the benefits of reading?” When you are asked this questions, do you think you can reply in a seconds without much thinking? I think it must take a lot of people hours to prepare a good answer. meanwhile IELTS says that you needn’t be knowledgeable to answer the questions!

    IELTS are right. You are not judged on the quality of the logic etc in your answer, just on the language. If you say something incredibly stupid with great English, you will get a high mark.
