IELTS Speaking
Part 2
 The IELTS examiner will give you a topic card. On the card, there will
be a short description of a topic, with some ideas for what to
include.
 The topic will be related to some of your personal experiences, for
example about a gift, someone gave you on your birthday or an
interesting place you visited during summer holidays, etc.
 The examiner will give you one minute to prepare your talk. After
one minute, the examiner will ask you to start. (speak loud enough
so, the examiner can easily understand you)
 The examiner will let you speak without any interruption.
 After 2 minutes the examiner will interrupt and ask you one or two
extra questions about the topic.
 Then, you move to IELTS Speaking Part 3.
 IELTS Speaking
Part 2: what
happens?
You don’t
have to
follow every
bullet points
on the card.
The bullet points are there to help
you in structuring your talk, however,
there is no instructions or rules that
you must include all of them in your
talk. If there are one or two that you
don’t feel comfortable talking about,
leave them out and talk about
something else. Important is that
your talk should be related to the
given topic.
Do not repeat the bullet points to
link a new topic.
 Do not try to
memorize
complete
answers. It is
fine to lie.
 Some of the cue cards will ask you to talk about things
you might not have experienced in your entire life. It is
fine to lie. The examiner will never check your
answers.
 Use your imagination and you will be fine. The best
strategy is to use real experiences first and add in
some lies to help you speak for a longer time.
 However, the best answers are always about things
you have experienced in your life. You will be able to
describe these things with much more confidence.
 Do not try to memorize answers. The examiner will
know if you are repeating something you memorized,
especially if it has nothing to do with the topic card.
 Ask for
clarification
if you don’t
understand
something on
the topic card
but don’t just
say “I don’t
understand.”
 You can ask for clarification if you don’t understand
something on the topic card.
 But, don’t just say “I don’t understand.”
 Use one of the following phrases for asking
clarification:
 “By…., do you mean…..?”
 “If I understand correctly, it means that….”
 “So, in other words, I should….”
 “So, is it ok if I talk about…?”
Make notes
before you
talk.
The examiner will give you one
minute to prepare your talk. It is
better to write down some notes.
It will be to difficult to manage your
thoughts If you have to think about
what to say when you’re talking.
You can refer
to your
notes while
speaking.
It is fine to refer to your notes while
talking. By looking at your notes you
can think of what next to speak and
recap the structure you plan to follow
during your talk.
But make sure you look up from
your notes and make eye contact
with the examiner when you are
speaking.
 Few minor
mistakes are
fine.
 Everyone makes grammar and vocabulary
mistakes. This is fine, and you should
therefore not panic when you speak.
 Being nervous and stressed affects your
ideas, pronunciation, fluency and normally
leads to further grammar mistakes. Few
minor mistakes are fine.
 Memorise some
good opening
statements.
 Starting your talk is difficult, so it is good to memorise few good
opening phrases.
 Here are some good examples:
 For example, if your topic is “describe your favourite teacher”.
Instead of saying: “I’d like to talk about my favourite teacher.”
 Say: “Well, there are many good teachers who I could talk about,
but I suppose the favourite teacher I’ve had was …I choose this
teacher because of many reasons like……”
 If your topic is “describe a beautiful place to visit in your
country”. Don’t say: “I’d like to talk about a beautiful place in my
country.”
 Say: “Well, there are many beautiful places which I could talk
about, but I suppose the most beautiful place I’ve been to is….I
choose this place for many reasons like…….”
Use
transitions
words and
phrases.
Without using transitions, it will be much more difficult to fill two
minutes.
• For example, these are your main points:
• My necklace is important to me.
• I got it from my grandmother.
• I’ve had it for 10 years.
• I use it to dress up for special events such as weddings.
• It has been passed down from generation to generation.
Connect your ideas together with transitional words and phrases
like this:
•The most important thing I own is my
necklace because I got it from my grandmother. I’ve
had it for 10 years. It is not only beautiful but also full
of memories. I wear it to dress up for special events
such as weddings for the most part but I also wear it
on days that I’m missing my grandmother. In fact, this
necklace has been passed down from generation to
generation. Therefore, this necklace is very important
to me.
It is much easier to think of a few relevant ideas and
develop them, then it is to think of lots of different
ideas.
When you are practising, a good way to expand your
main ideas is to add some details about:
Who
What
Why
Where
How
When
This will help you quickly and easily develop your
main ideas.
Expend your
ideas - Add
details.
Expend your
ideas - Add
details.
Finally, do not just rush through your
answers. Remember that you need to
speak for up to two minutes. Be
descriptive and give details to your
story.
*Introduce the topic in detail.
*Give some background information.
*Include examples.
One minute for preparation – Not enough
 You will get one minute to prepare your 2-minutes speech as per the
cue card topic and its four prompts (guiding points).
 One-minute time is not enough for preparation on an unknown and
mostly an unfamiliar topic.
 A better strategy is to focus on the first two points and develop them as
much as you can. Rest two points will come to you once you have taken
a confident start. If you try to think on all four points before you start
you will be confused.
Speak as much as on the first 2-3 points
 Keep the last point in the reserve. Try to extend
your answer as much as you can for the first two
or three points of your clue card because if you
finish first two or three points fast you will find
very hard to continue talking one single point for
remaining time.
 Don’t focus on time. Focus on the topic.
 Although, the question asks you to speak for 1 to 2 minutes, it
is not strictly necessary that you must speak for 2 minutes.
 While speaking, don’t focus on time. Focus on the topic. If you
cross two minutes limit the examiner will interrupt you.
 Also, don’t memorize answers since this can seriously affect
your scores.

IELTS Speaking Part 2 - Storytelling Tips

  • 1.
  • 3.  The IELTS examiner will give you a topic card. On the card, there will be a short description of a topic, with some ideas for what to include.  The topic will be related to some of your personal experiences, for example about a gift, someone gave you on your birthday or an interesting place you visited during summer holidays, etc.  The examiner will give you one minute to prepare your talk. After one minute, the examiner will ask you to start. (speak loud enough so, the examiner can easily understand you)  The examiner will let you speak without any interruption.  After 2 minutes the examiner will interrupt and ask you one or two extra questions about the topic.  Then, you move to IELTS Speaking Part 3.  IELTS Speaking Part 2: what happens?
  • 4. You don’t have to follow every bullet points on the card. The bullet points are there to help you in structuring your talk, however, there is no instructions or rules that you must include all of them in your talk. If there are one or two that you don’t feel comfortable talking about, leave them out and talk about something else. Important is that your talk should be related to the given topic. Do not repeat the bullet points to link a new topic.
  • 5.  Do not try to memorize complete answers. It is fine to lie.  Some of the cue cards will ask you to talk about things you might not have experienced in your entire life. It is fine to lie. The examiner will never check your answers.  Use your imagination and you will be fine. The best strategy is to use real experiences first and add in some lies to help you speak for a longer time.  However, the best answers are always about things you have experienced in your life. You will be able to describe these things with much more confidence.  Do not try to memorize answers. The examiner will know if you are repeating something you memorized, especially if it has nothing to do with the topic card.
  • 6.  Ask for clarification if you don’t understand something on the topic card but don’t just say “I don’t understand.”  You can ask for clarification if you don’t understand something on the topic card.  But, don’t just say “I don’t understand.”  Use one of the following phrases for asking clarification:  “By…., do you mean…..?”  “If I understand correctly, it means that….”  “So, in other words, I should….”  “So, is it ok if I talk about…?”
  • 7. Make notes before you talk. The examiner will give you one minute to prepare your talk. It is better to write down some notes. It will be to difficult to manage your thoughts If you have to think about what to say when you’re talking.
  • 8. You can refer to your notes while speaking. It is fine to refer to your notes while talking. By looking at your notes you can think of what next to speak and recap the structure you plan to follow during your talk. But make sure you look up from your notes and make eye contact with the examiner when you are speaking.
  • 9.  Few minor mistakes are fine.  Everyone makes grammar and vocabulary mistakes. This is fine, and you should therefore not panic when you speak.  Being nervous and stressed affects your ideas, pronunciation, fluency and normally leads to further grammar mistakes. Few minor mistakes are fine.
  • 10.  Memorise some good opening statements.  Starting your talk is difficult, so it is good to memorise few good opening phrases.  Here are some good examples:  For example, if your topic is “describe your favourite teacher”. Instead of saying: “I’d like to talk about my favourite teacher.”  Say: “Well, there are many good teachers who I could talk about, but I suppose the favourite teacher I’ve had was …I choose this teacher because of many reasons like……”  If your topic is “describe a beautiful place to visit in your country”. Don’t say: “I’d like to talk about a beautiful place in my country.”  Say: “Well, there are many beautiful places which I could talk about, but I suppose the most beautiful place I’ve been to is….I choose this place for many reasons like…….”
  • 11. Use transitions words and phrases. Without using transitions, it will be much more difficult to fill two minutes. • For example, these are your main points: • My necklace is important to me. • I got it from my grandmother. • I’ve had it for 10 years. • I use it to dress up for special events such as weddings. • It has been passed down from generation to generation. Connect your ideas together with transitional words and phrases like this: •The most important thing I own is my necklace because I got it from my grandmother. I’ve had it for 10 years. It is not only beautiful but also full of memories. I wear it to dress up for special events such as weddings for the most part but I also wear it on days that I’m missing my grandmother. In fact, this necklace has been passed down from generation to generation. Therefore, this necklace is very important to me.
  • 12. It is much easier to think of a few relevant ideas and develop them, then it is to think of lots of different ideas. When you are practising, a good way to expand your main ideas is to add some details about: Who What Why Where How When This will help you quickly and easily develop your main ideas. Expend your ideas - Add details.
  • 13. Expend your ideas - Add details. Finally, do not just rush through your answers. Remember that you need to speak for up to two minutes. Be descriptive and give details to your story. *Introduce the topic in detail. *Give some background information. *Include examples.
  • 14. One minute for preparation – Not enough  You will get one minute to prepare your 2-minutes speech as per the cue card topic and its four prompts (guiding points).  One-minute time is not enough for preparation on an unknown and mostly an unfamiliar topic.  A better strategy is to focus on the first two points and develop them as much as you can. Rest two points will come to you once you have taken a confident start. If you try to think on all four points before you start you will be confused.
  • 15. Speak as much as on the first 2-3 points  Keep the last point in the reserve. Try to extend your answer as much as you can for the first two or three points of your clue card because if you finish first two or three points fast you will find very hard to continue talking one single point for remaining time.
  • 16.  Don’t focus on time. Focus on the topic.  Although, the question asks you to speak for 1 to 2 minutes, it is not strictly necessary that you must speak for 2 minutes.  While speaking, don’t focus on time. Focus on the topic. If you cross two minutes limit the examiner will interrupt you.  Also, don’t memorize answers since this can seriously affect your scores.
