Hello, and welcome to Study English, IELTS Preparation. I'm Margot Politis.

0:18

Today we'll look at the IELTS Speaking Test.

0:21

There are three parts to the test. Each part has a particular purpose.

0:26

The examiner will record the interview to ensure the test is to standard and conducted

0:31

fairly for all candidates.

0:33

Let's watch someone begin their interview. Good morning, my name is Maria. What's your

0:43

name? My name's Sanjay.

0:45

Thankyou. Can I just check your ID please Sanjay. Thank you, that's fine. What are you

0:54

doing at the moment? Are you a student, or do you work?

0:58

I'm currently a student. And what are you studying?

1:01

I'm studying a Diploma in Business.

1:05

The purpose of Part One is to settle you down and get you used to the test situation. So

1:11

you will only be required to answer some general questions about yourself on some familiar

1:16

topics such as: studies, travel, sports, family, food and exercise.

1:30

Let's see how another candidate answers questions about exercise. The first question is designed

1:37

to test her skills at identifying:

1:40

What kind of exercise do you enjoy? I enjoy running, because I think it's easy,

1:50

and I think you should need, er, good shoes and you can run and I can run at morning,

1:54

it's really good I think.

1:58

The next question is to see how well she expresses an opinion:

2:02

Is it important to exercise regularly? Yes, I think it's really important, because

2:07

you can, um, keep your body healthy and you can keep fit, especially for girls' health,

2:15

keep fit. And it's good for your health as well.

2:19

This question tests comparing:

2:21

Do you think people are exercising more these days, compared to 50 years ago?

2:27

No, I don't think so. Because, you see, like me, they don't have enough time. I think it's,

2:33

a lot of people don't have enough time as well, so they don't have enough regular exercise.

2:39

Other skills that are assessed include: describing;

2:43

expressing preferences; and giving reasons

2:48

You are not expected to give in-depth answers at this stage of the interview but you can

2:53

extend your answer with a longer sentence.

2:56

To help prepare for this section you can develop vocabulary around the topic areas and make

3:02

sure you know the verb tense that is appropriate for answering the question.

3:07

For example the question 'What kind of exercise do you enjoy?' is in the simple present tense,

3:15

so she replies with the same tense: I enjoy running. Listen again:

3:22

What kind of exercise do you enjoy? I enjoy running.

3:31

In Part Two the examiner will give you a topic on a prompt card to talk about for one to

3:36

two minutes. You will be allowed one minute to make some notes. After your talk, the examiner

3:43

will ask you a follow up question.
