Time:​ 11-14 minutes   

Format:​ Interview   

Note: ​These questions are designed to help you simulate the IELTS speaking exam.  Unfortunately, it’s impossible to recreate the IELTS interview fully on this practice test.  However, there is a lot you can do to prepare for this section of the exam!  Here are  some ideas to help you get the most out of the questions in this section:    

BEST OPTION:​ If possible, find a native English speaker (or someone more fluent in  English than you) to act as your interviewer and read the questions to you.
He or she can  give you useful feedback about your pronunciation and grammar, and help you think  about ways to improve your responses.      

GOOD OPTION: ​Ask a friend or family member to read the questions to you. Even if this  person’s English skills are not strong, it is best to answer questions provided to you  verbally, rather than reading them on a page. Make sure to record your answers so you  can analyze what you said and think of ways to improve.    

JUST DO WHAT YOU CAN!! (OPTION):

 ​If nobody is around to help you, just read the  questions and answer them yourself. Again, record your answers to get the most out of  the experience.
