IELTS Interview part three
In this post i will teach you what Part three in speaking module is compare it with Part one, how
to understand questions in it and what expressions to use for supporting your ideas.
Speaking Part three is called two way discussion in which examiner asks you variety of longer
questions based on Part two(Que card) to evaluate competency in comparing and contrasting,
expressing a personal opinion, providing evidence, arguments and presenting and supporting
points.
Part three is difficult as compared to part one. Part one has simple and short questions while part
three has lengthy, mature and abstract questions.
To do well in part three is to understand questions. Understanding them requires complete focus
on listening and finding out main topic and planning your answer in organized way with
information, reasons, opinions etc. If you do not pick main idea of the question you will
probably answer it wrong which will not satisfy examiner. The most important tip for part three
is to listen to questions carefully by focusing on key words to get main idea. Once you get main
idea of a question it is easy to answer.
Below are the phrases can help you express your ideas in more effective way.
Comparing and contrasting
but / on the other hand / while / whereas / more…than
Expressing a personal opinion
i think / i believe / it seems to me that / in my opinion / in my view
providing evidence
Because / because of / as a result / so / such
presenting arguments
on the whole / generally speaking / on the other hand
presenting and supporting points
When presenting an argument, it’s important to make it clear whether you are stating a reliable
fact or expressing an opinion – your own or someone Else’s.
When you have more than one supporting reason, you can use linking expressions like the
following.
in the first place... on reason for this is... Another reason is... in
addition... Furthermore... moreover...
Answering abstract questions
It is suggested to answer abstract questions fully with relevant information and reasons. Do not
forget to link your ideas appropriately, and to use a good range of grammatical structures and
vocabulary.
