IELTS Speaking Interview: All Questions May – June 2017.



I’ve compiled almost all IELTS interview questions asked during the months of May and June. These questions (after removing repetitions) boil down to just 64.

As I explained in an earlier post, the purpose of IELTS speaking is to judge your communication skills. Whether you’re able to carry our a fairly intelligent conversation in English? A crucial element of that conversation is “Breaking the ice”. The first part of the speaking test is devoted to breaking the ice, that is getting familiar. Here are a few questions you need to prepare for this section. Keep visiting this post as I’ll be adding more questions to this already long list.
