IELTS Speaking Task 2 Sample Questions

Task 2 topics and questions

Most people have some difficulty in the task 2 or individual long-turn section of the speaking test. This is due to the nature of the test where the candidate has to talk for a relatively extended period of time.

Remember that:           -   you will be given a minute to think about your answers and to make notes

-   you will be given 2 minutes to answer all the questions in the task card

-   you need to talk for at least a minute and a half

!IMPORTANT ADVICE!

- Practice these questions aloud; there is a wide gap between just thinking about your answers and actually saying them.

- If you can, record yourself while practicing. You can even use your mobile phone for this.

- Taking notes is essential. The candidate must be able to answer all of the questions in the task cards. The card is usually taken away after a minute and requests to view the questions again will not be entertained.
