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

0:18

Today we'll look at some aspects of discussing a topic, which is something you are expected

0:23

to do in Part 3 of the IELTS Speaking Test.

0:28

In Part 3 of the Speaking Test you participate in a two-way discussion to test your ability

0:33

to discuss a topic in depth in a number of ways. These may include speculating,

0:41

comparing and contrasting or identifying a trend.

0:46

The speaker in the next clip identifies a trend. What is the trend?

0:52

The fastest-growing area of identity fraud is in internet services, such as people breaking

0:57

into Internet banking accounts, credit card fraud over the internet, people using fraudulent

1:04

credit cards, fraudulent identities to, essentially, break into other people's accounts and, essentially,

1:10

steal their money.

1:12

The trend he's identified is the fastest-growing crime in the world, identity fraud.

1:18

If we listen further he explains why it's a problem.

1:22

The traditional way to protect internet banking and other secure applications is through passwords

1:28

and PIN numbers. And these are totally inadequate in an area where identity-related fraud is

1:35

growing at such a high rate.

1:37

He tells us it's a problem because the traditional ways to protect internet banking are inadequate.

1:44

But he has a solution. Let's hear what it is.

1:48

What we've actually developed here is a technology that allows us to analyse a person's voice

1:53

- a person that is actually sitting at their computer screen accessing a secure website.

1:57

We're able to analyse their voice in order to confirm that they actually are who they

2:01

say they are. [Voice Authentication Demo: Big bird - Congratulations you have been successfully

2:07

verified].

2:08

His solution is to use technology which produces a voice signature.

2:13

He demonstrated three of the language functions which are used to assess your communication

2:19

skills.

2:21

He identified the issue - that identity fraud is a problem and then explained why it's a

2:27

problem.

2:29

The third language function was providing a solution - he talked about what could be

2:34

done to prevent identity fraud.

2:36

Now let's listen to this woman responding to the question: What makes a person famous?

2:46

I think there are different ways to see what makes a person famous. One is the publicity

2:52

and the marketing around a person, but I don't think that's a real, honest way to be famous.

2:58

I think if I have to choose I'd rather be famous for being honest, for being kind and

3:04

for trying to help and solve conflicts or problems in the world, instead of being on

3:10

the cover of a magazine. So my characteristics for a, a famous person, I will go for honesty

3:19

and kindness.

3:21

She shows that she understands the question by incorporating it into her response at the

3:26

start. By repeating the question she is clarifying the topic.
