1 The Introduction First of all, don't repeat any part of the question in your introduction.

This is not your own work and therefore will be disregarded by the examiner and deducted from the word count. You can use individual words but be careful of using "chunks" of the question text. Your introduction should first say what you understand by the question. Then give the main issue or issues that you intend to bring into your answer. Don't go into any detail; you can save that for the later paragraphs. Finally, the question often asks you to take up a position over an issue. There is no right answer for putting your views at the start and then explaining this through the essay, or developing your opinion though your essay and stating your final stance at the end. I personally like the opinion at the start of the essay. Quickly and clearly answer the question, making your attitude plain. Don't give any reasons. Again, that's what the body of your essay is for. You don't have to do it this way though. You can w ait until your conclusion to give your position as regards the question. 2 The Body of Your Essay You should aim to have 3 or 4 paragraphs in your answer. This is not exact. You can write more or fewer paragraphs, as your answer requires. Remember you've only got about 40 minutes to cover all the question areas so don't be too ambitious and try to write too much. In the body of your essay you should do several things. You need to examine all parts of the question. Remember there is often more than 1 question contained in the essay question text. You need to look at all that is asked and look at both sides of every issue. IELTS essay questions usually ask you something which has two or more points of view, and you need to consider both sides of every argument no matter what your opinion is. Look below at the example. The question asks whether or not you believe whether societies should use capital punishment. There are, of course, two points of view: (1) capital punishment should be used and (2) capital punishment shouldn't be used. Let's say for example that you don't believe that capital punishment should be used by societies. No matter what point of view you have, you should look at both sides, though naturally your writing will favour the position that you have taken. Give the reasons why you don't believe in

your ideas need to be supported by examples and it is in the body of your essay that they should appear. Here I will try and provide you with an example question and then go through the stages of thought to show you how to approach an IELTS General Training Writing Task 2 essay. You need to sum up your points providing a final perspective on your topic. Simply review the main points (being careful not to restate them exactly or repeat all your examples) and briefly describe your feelings about the topic. For every idea that you present try and give an example from your own experience that shows that your idea is right. The example below should illustrate what we have been discussing here. What does it ask? Straight away. you can see that it asks 2 things. In this way you will show the reader your powers of analysis when looking at such an issue. You can actually invent examples if you need as long as they seem realistic and believable. this provides an answer to all parts of the question.capital punishment but then look at the opposing view and say why you don't accept it. The examiner is probably not going to research anything you write about. An Example of the IELTS General Training Task 2 Writing It's very difficult to visualize and understand all the things that I have said above. from your country's news or history or anything that you have read anywhere. . Here is a possible question that would be typical for a Task 2 essay question. which do not need to follow any set formula. All the conclusion needs is three or four strong sentences. 3 The Conclusion This doesn't need to be a long paragraph. An example from your own experience means something that you know from your life. An anecdote can also end your essay in a useful way. As we said earlier. "Do you believe that societies ought to enforce capital punishment or Are there alternative forms of punishment that would be better used?" First of all you need to consider the question. Don't forget that when you have finished looking at this issue there is a second part of the question to be analysed too.

There are alternative punishments. Conclusion I don't agree. Example Essay for the IELTS General Training Task 2 Writing Capital punishment is the killing of a criminal for a crime that he has committed. Examples. Intro y y y What cp is. We can do other things. The above is a basic plan of how I want to write my essay. I don't believe in cp. Body 1. Where it's used. You can present any point of view as long as you can support it. Killers deserve nothing less. So. Costs more but society has a duty to care. Prisons too full. So. What is important to realize is that there is no correct answer here. (not my country). I can change my ideas and format as I write if I feel I can do better. Previously most countries employed this method of punishment but nowadays it is much less widely used. prisoners can be released if there's an error. Some crimes deserve it. good ideas as you write and the skill is to get them into your essay without upsetting the balance of the essay. below is an example essay using the plan above as a basis. Mentally ill. 2. We can get convictions wrong. Inhumane . You won't get good at writing essays and adapting your writing well without practice.It wants to know if you believe that society should use capital punishment and it also wants to know if you can offer any alternatives to capital punishment. I can also add things that I've forgotten as the essay goes on. Many countries favour it and they say it works. Your answer should give a balanced view of both parts of this question. each paragraph and the conclusion. hospitals for criminally insane. I personally do not . 4. 3. It's not rigid.we shouldn't sink to the level of criminals. Not my morals though. in your planning stage you should have a roadmap for the introduction. Avoid mistakes and make modern society a humane one. Here is my brief plan for the essay. How do you do this? It's practice again. Alternative punishments: life means life. Differing opinions. It's normal of course for you to have new.

as there are less barbaric alternatives available. In the UK. All these are fairly similar tasks. in conclusion. Another argument against capital punishment is that people can be wrongly convicted and executed. If he is dead. I don't believe in the old religious maxim of "an eye for an eye. there is nothing that can be done. Yes. Marking for the IELTS General Training Task 1 Writing Your task will be marked in three areas. There are arguments for capital punishment. he can be released if later proved not guilty. Also a lot of horrific crimes are committed by people who are mentally sick. If they had been executed. You will get a mark from 1 to 9 on Task Fulfilment. Coherence & Cohesion and Vocabulary and Sentence Structure. It's cheaper and keeps the prisons manageable. For bad crimes prison life sentences can be given with criminals imprisoned for the rest of their lives. These people are not responsible for their actions and can be kept safely and permanently in secure hospitals. this costs a lot more but I believe it is the duty of society to do this. There are alternative punishments available. Many people feel its threat stops serious crime and that criminals deserve nothing less. General Writting Task 1 Tips: The IELTS General Training Writing Task 1 asks you to write a letter of a minimum of 150 words in response to some situation or problem. to make arrangements and/or explain a situation. more weight is assigned to . The task will probably ask you to complain about something. Task 1 writing is less important than Task 2 and to calculate the final writing mark. to request information. ask for help. We can avoid horrific mistakes and make modern society a humane one. I don't believe in capital punishment." Modern societies shouldn't turn to such barbaric punishments. I can understand this poi nt of view but I cannot agree with it. So.believe that societies today should use capital punishment and I also believe that there are alternative punishments that can be used. Your final band for Task 1 will be effectively an average of the three marks awarded in these areas. innocent people would have died. My main argument against capital punishment is that I believe we do not have the right to kill another human being regardless of the crime. If a man is in prison. They were proved innocent about 15 years later and released. a group of supposed terrorists were convicted of murder in Birmingham in the 1970s.

Paragraphing for the IELTS General Training Task 1 Writing This is a very easy thing to do but it can have an enormous effect on the clarity of your writing. Task Fulfilment This where you can really make a difference through careful preparation. the reader does not understand what the writer wants to say. Probably the writer of this sentence does not mean "because" as people don't usually go to the beach when it is raining. This mark grades you on basically have you answered the question? Cohesion and Coherence These two are interrelated which is why they are done together. The marker will look whether the right grammar and words are used and whether they are used at the right time in the right place and in the right way. Does your writing with its ideas and content flow logically? Coherence is how you are making yourself understood and whether the reader of your writing understands what you are saying. This is an exaggerated example but it shows what I mean. It shows and gives organization to your writing and makes it more readable. both tasks have to be well answered so don't hold back on Task 1 or give yourself too little time to answer it properly. . the best writings are those where there are paragraphs separated by an empty line and also indented. Cohesion is how your writing fits together. For me. The writer should have written: 2 We went to the beach although it was raining. Very often people use no paragraphing and the examiner is faced with a "sea" of writing with no breaks from start to finish. Sentence 1 has made a cohesion and coherence error (as well as a vocabulary one). grammar is only half of one section of three used to grade your writing. as a result.the Task 2 mark than to Task 1's mark. IELTS is much more interested in communication rather than grammatical accuracy. To get a good overall mark though. An example of bad coherence and cohesion would be as follows: 1 We went to the beach because it was raining. Vocabulary and Sentence Structure This area looks at the your grammar and choice of words. In this way your ideas are separated clearly. as you can see. Most people are predominantly worried about their grammar but. "Because" does not join the ideas of the sentence together correctly and.

a question I have seen somewhere gives the candidate the following task: You have some library books that you are unable to return as a member of your family in another city has fallen sick and you have had to go and look after them. Answering the question in a way that will get you a good Task Fulfilment grade needs a number of things for you to do. 1) Write at least 150 words. say what you are going to do The important part is to fully do these things. see GT Writing Task 2 Tutorial. Even if you have covered all that the question itself asks.For a longer section on paragraphing and how useful it can be. Apologize for the inconvenience called and say what you are going to do. which tells you to write at least 150 words. In this case it asks you to do 3 main things: 1. You should write at least 150 words. however. 2) Fully do all the things that the question asks you. Write a letter to the library explaining the situation. apologize for the inconvenience 3. Don't take 1 line to explain about your relative . Task 1 is the best for preparation. If you write less than 150 words. the examiner marking your paper will give you a maximum of 5 for Task Fulfilment or even less. What you must do is to write a letter. This is often. This seems a fairly typical IELTS General Training Task 1 writing question. As I said above. not the case. For example. explain the situation 2. which would fully answer the needs of the problem in a real life situation. Areas to Prepare As I said earlier. have you included everything in the letter needed to realistically perform its function. Below are some areas for you to consider: 1 Answering the question. Writing less does not answer the question.people who do this often don't make the 150 word . task fulfilment (answering the question) is one third of your total mark and it is an area in which everyone should do well.

eg: Dear John. theoretically. Use your imagination. 2 The Opening Greeting of the Letter Your letter will probably need to be a reasonably informal letter to a friend or a semi-formal letter. which it may not ask you for. Enlarge on what the question tells you. A friendly letter will open with Dear followed by a name which should then be followed by a comma. anyone. Without this information. Dear Sir/Madam. This involves adding other things to the letter. You're writing to a library and you won't make it too personal. when you borrowed them and when they were due back. even though the question doesn't ask you specifically to include it. It must be something fairly serious to make you leave town and you must be the only one possible to look after the relative so go into these things. the examiner reading your work will be looking for such things. Dear Sir. Phillips. For this question. Apologizing won't take up much space but you can still devote a couple of sentences to it. . the situation might involve you getting a fine for the late books so you could ask politely for that to be cancelled due to the circumstances. telling the library the titles of the books that you have borrowed. the letter wouldn't help the library much in real life and. it would mean introducing yourself by name. Finally. whatever their level of English. Dear Mrs. but without which your letter would not perform its function. Madam (if it's a woman) or Sir/Madam if you don't know. Phillips. their library reference numbers. in this question. should be able to get a good mark here. the names of their authors. Dear Madam. A semi-formal letter will also open with Dear and then be followed by a name. 3) Make your letter realistic so it would function in a real life situation. giving your library card membership number. Saying what you are going to do should be a full explanation as well. Be realistic as well.limit. (if you decide that in the situation you would know the name) or by Sir (if it's a man). These are things that are needed to get a 9 for task fulfilment and. The opening of your letter should reflect which one you are writing. eg: Dear Mr.

.. the reason I'm writing is. I am writing to.. Through great experience with IELTS.. I'm writing to express my anger at. I'd like to ask for information about.. I am writing in response to..... .. You could use the following to help you: I am writing to ask/ tell//inform you that....... I am writing in connection with.. Here I will give you some ideas about some language to use in the substance of the letter which will help you to answer the task well. Anyway... I feel it is important to state the reason for the letter straight away.. EG: Dear John. ... I am writing with reference to.. I hope you are doing well and I hope all you family are doing fine. (if the question indicates that you have had a letter) If the letter is a less formal one to a friend then you should open the letter in a friendlier way. is not what I expected/was expecting... I am writing with regard to. I would be grateful if you could. I'm pretty good in spite of working hard. Asking for Help I would like you to. 3 The Opening Paragraph of the Letter In a semi-formal letter.The question also might specify how you are to begin so follow what it says. Complaining I'm writing to express my dissatisfaction/annoyance/ about.. Hi there! It's been so long since I've heard from you. In reply to your letter. I can say that questions tend to ask you to do certain things. I am writing to ask/inquire.. 4 The Substance of the Letter I've already gone into detail about answering the question fully and using your imagination to produce a realistic letter fulfilling all functions so I won't repeat that. What I'm looking for is..... I need to ask your advice about.. I am not happy about... I want to know what you are going to do about this situation.

I'd like to apologize about. These can be included in most letters and will make your letter seem realistic and polished.. don't get too angry. make sure that they fit in with the rest of your letter. . do say that you're not satisfied but show that you understand and stay calm in your expressions. I look forward to hearing from you soon. In a polite semi -formal letter. this should not happen. If it's a reasonably small and understandable problem.NB When complaining. Be careful though! IELTS examiners quite rightly look for writing that has been memorised and just repeated so. Best wishes. For a formal letter. if you use expressions like the ones above. Better would be to use: Regards. I've had students who really became too heated in their complaints. do not over-exaggerate. Thanking you in advance for your help.. Please accept my apologies 5 Ending your Letter First of all. I'd like to thank you very much for. OR Yours sincerely. Thanks a lot for your help and I hope to hear from you soon. Please forgive me for.. I very much appreciated. love is not always appropriate though English speakers use it a lot.. For a more informal letter you could use: If you need to know anything else. in English we often end letters before the sign off with certain phrases. please do not hesitate to contact me. Apologizing I'm very sorry that/about. Thanking I'm very grateful for... Finally you'll need to sign off your letter.. Also. just get in touch with me as soon as you can. For an informal letter. Remember the commas (it makes a good impression on the examiner if you use good punctuation) and spell "sincerely" correctly (a lot of people don't!). Yours.. you could use: If you require any further information. For a formal letter use: Yours faithfully.....

only 11 to 14 minutes. So.5 minutes) Question Types for the IELTS General Training Speaking Test The types of questions that come in the IELTS General Training Speaking Test are very general in nature and are designed so that anyone around the world. The Speaking test is recorded. The speaking test is divided into 3 sections: Section 1 Section 1 begins with some general introductory questions.General Speaking Tips: The IELTS General Training Speaking Test is the shortest of the components of the IELTS test . The student has an optional 1 minute in order to prepare for his talk and is provided with some paper and a pencil in order to make some brief notes. The test is conducted with 1 examiner and 1 candidate. The questions will not be overly personal and will avoid contentious subjects such as politics. and so have the opportunity to show how good his English is. (3 . (4 . These questions will be more demanding and require some critical analysis on the part of the candidate. Finally the examiner asks a series of ques tions of 2 topics of general interest. All the questions will be open questions rather than closed questions. The examiner decides on the exact length. sex or religion. After the candidate's talk the examiner will ask 1 or 2 brief questions in order to finish off the section. regardless of what background or culture they come from.4 minutes) Section 3 Here the examiner will ask some more questions generally related to the subject spoken about in section 2. (4 5 minutes) Section 2 Section 2 is a monologue (1 person speaking) by the candidate. This is followed by some questions on personal information similar to the type of questions one would ask when meeting someone for the first time. The examiner will give the candidate a card with a subject and a few guiding questions on it. An open question asks the candidate to give an extended answer. y ou will not get a question like: . should be able to answer them. In this short time you have to convince the examiner who will be speaking with you of your level of English. The student must talk for 1 to 2 minutes on this subject. A closed question is one that can be answered by a single word or a couple of words. The IELTS General Training Speaking Test is the same for both the Academic and General Training modules.

IELTS Academic Speaking Test Marks. your accuracy at producing them and whether you use the right structure at the right time and in the right place. Any answers like this will just be followed by the question why? so you have to extend your answer (what you should have done after the "yes" anyway). Let's look at these areas in more detail. 4. These 4 areas are: y y y y Fluency and Coherence Lexical Resource Grammatical Range Accuracy and Pronunciation. Fluency and Coherence: The examiner grades your fluency.Do you like living in your town? A student could just answer yes. the question is more likely to be: Why do you like living in your town? Here the candidate has to give an explanation and therefore the examiner hears plenty of English which will help him or her evaluate you. logically and with consistency? Do you communicate well? Lexical Resource: This mark grades the range of words that you use in your speaking test and whether you use the words in the right way. For the first 3. the examiner looks at how easy you are to understand. This is the area that worries the candidates the most as it is the dreaded grammar. any gaps in your speaking should be associated with searching for the right idea rather than hesitancy with finding the right word or structure. Finally an average is taken to give you your final band for the Speaking. which is how easy. To get a good grade here. Anyway. The Three Sections of the IELTS General Training Listening Test . Bands and Results In the IELTS General Training Speaking Test you will be marked in 4 areas. Pronunciation: This mark grades you on how clearly you speak English. Grammatical Range and Resource: This mark grades your range of grammatical structures. For Pronunciation you get a 2. For the coherence part. Remember it is only 1 part out of 4. at the right time and in the right place. you get a mark out of 9. 6 or 8. Marking . smooth and flowing your speaking is. Does your flow of ideas run smoothly.

the IELTS test always tries to mirror situations that you will encounter as a student or immigrant in an English speaking country. These questions are the type that people would use when meeting someone for the first time. 4. Section 1 (4 . The examiner will hand you a card with the subject written on it. This does not mean that by Section 3 they are impossible but they are more demanding linguistically. Section 3 (4 . origin and identification. your home or your work/study. You can refer to your notes while you are speaking. 3. he may ask you 1 or 2 general questions about what you have been discussing. Remember. In the second part the examiner asks some personal (not too personal so don't worry) questions about some familiar topics such as yourself. Like all the different modules of the IELTS. Here the examiner checks that he or she has the right person by checking the candidates name. In the third part the examiner chooses 2 sets of questions from his selection. You must use the one that he gives you. Section 2 (3 . along with about three questions on the subject in order to guide and help your speaking. the IELTS General Training Speaking Test gets more difficult as it goes on. This should last for a couple of minutes. After he has asked you to stop. The first part involves general introductions. The speaking test is no different and each of the sections has a specific purpose.4 minutes) In this section the candidate has to give a small "speech" or monologue on a general subject chosen by the examiner. This section is divided into three parts. 2. the examiner will ask you to start talking and you must talk on the subject until the examiner asks you to stop. These sets of questions will cover general ideas on a theme of general interest. . This only takes a few seconds.Here we will look at the three sections in more detail. The examiner will then tell you that you have 1 minute to prepare your mini-talk and he or she will give you some paper and a pencil to make some notes during that minute. The questions that are asked in Section 1 are easier than in Section 2 and so on. After the minute.5 minutes) 1. These questions will be of a more demanding nature and will require a more analytical and thoughtful answer. You cannot ask the examiner for another card.5 minutes) In Section 3 the examiner will ask you a series of questions thematically linked to the subject that you spoke about in Section 2. your family. You will also probably need to use more complex language as regards grammatical structure and vocabulary.

Try and give as full an answer as you can so that you show the examiner that you are comfortable at talking at length and can communicate well. If an examiner has to talk with someone who doesn't talk much. you won't be able to answer all questions at length. But be friendly. Try and be friendly and look as though you are enjoying the conversation. then it has a negative effect on the examiner. Without your talking input. You can't duck out of every question though . smile and look the examiner in the eye. The examiner will expect some mistakes . Similarly. The examiner understands that and will try and put you at ease. Different people can talk about different questions more and the examiner knows this. Perfection is not needed. Don't worry about the occasional mistake. the examiner can't grade you very well. If you try and extend yourself too much. Don't do this to extremes though. First of all practice. More important is your communication. When you're finished. So don't let making errors upset you. say so and then say what you do know. Just try and talk normally as that is when you will perform at your best. This would be impossible to do and concentrate on your speaking. The examiner is not making a note of every single mistake that you make.after all. He will more get a general impression of your English accuracy so individual errors don't matter. doesn't smile at all and who clearly doesn't want to be there. The examiner will see that you have finished and will give you the next question.How to do Better in the IELTS General Training Speaking Test There are a number of things you can do to have a better performance in the IELTS General Training Speaking Test. You have to talk. If you don't know much about something. English is a foreign language for you and people make mistakes in speaking foreign languages. Below you will find a separate section devoted to practising the IELTS General Training Speaking Test. Being nervous is fine. Get on with the talking and concentrate on your communication. then that is when you will make the most errors. You can still make some errors and get a 9 (not many errors though). Don't try and be too clever. When you are in the test. When you have finished what you have to say stop. This has a big effect on the examiner.the responsibility is on you to talk. This is the key to all the different modules of IELTS. Don't try and force more out as it will probably be strained and repetitive. . the examiner will give you another question. It makes a difference.

You can do this sat at home. If you do give a yes/now answer. sit down with your dictionary and try and think of all the vocabulary you would need to completely describe all parts of your life. There are various things that you can do to improve your performance. you'll probably ge t a why next anyway. then you can do it by yourself. family and work/study. You just look at your list and imagine that someone has asked you the question. You don't have to do either method i or ii. the speaking can be re-marked. This doesn't happen very often. off you go. Section 1 In section 1 you start with personal questions suchabouts yourself. then this could not be done. The more often you practice this.One thing that puts candidates off is that the IELTS General Training Speaking Test is recorded. Prepare the types of questions for each of the different sections. full answers. So. Do this again and again. If the speaking was not recorded. as you will give better and better answers with more and more information. Sample recordings are also sent to the IELTS administration to be monitored to make sure that examiners are doing a good job and assigning the correct bands. try and forget that the recorder is there and get on with answering the questions. It doesn't matter if you do the same question frequently. 2. Get a friend to ask you the questions and practice giving long. talking by yourself. home. If the bands for a candidate's writing and speaking for instance are very different. then the candidate's test is re -checked. So. if you don't have a friend who can do this. It all helps. . this is the one thing that will really improve your band. your home or your work/study. It gives a bad impression. if necessary. It may feel a bit strange at first. your family. Then sit down with a piece of paper and write down every question you can think of about these ideas. you can mix both. Then. you can talk to the cat. You can then practice them in 2 ways: 1. This is done so that. Don't forget your ID! You need it at the start of the test. Don't give yes/no answers unless you continue with a because. the mirror or do it driving on the way to work. Practice for the IELTS General Training Speaking Test As in all parts of the IELTS. Try and come up with about 20. the better you'll get. but it works and you will improve.

you can start to make your own examples and practice answering them in the ways (i and ii) above. Students doing this. Once you have an idea of the types of theme and question. And explain why this place is so special for you. These are not complicated but are more demanding than the ones that you did in the part before. how do you get better at it? By practising it again and again. talking for 2 minutes without stopping won't be a problem. . How you get there.In the second part of Section 1 you have to answer questions on themes of general interest. Then practice them with someone or by yourself. You should say: y y y y When you first went there. Speaking for this time in your own language is quite hard. I have done this with classes and it works very well. so in a foreign language it is harder. The first question could be: Do you enjoy traveling and why/why not? Then this could be followed by: Where would you like to travel to and why? You can find other sample themes and questions in IELTS Practice Now Question Papers and from other sources. So. Remember you don't have to talk fast or without breaks. Let's say for example that the theme the examiner chooses is travelling. They want you to talk normally. The reason it is hard is that you don't often talk uninterrupted for 1 to 2 minutes about anything. pause to take breaths and take time to consult your notes to give yourself ideas about what to talk about next. Check out other question types and soon you're be able to develop your own. Soon. The examiner will have a set of questions to ask you. The practice procedure is as before. come up with actual themes and questions from the test itself!! Section 2 Preparation and practice for Section 2 is similar to the practice in Section 1. Talk at a normal speed. How many he asks depends on how long you talk for in your answers. What you do when you're there.You have to talk for 1 to 2 minutes in English. So. whether it is in your language or English. Let's say that your task is as follows: Describe a favourite holiday destination that you like. more often than not. you can see the format of this section.

An example question from the examiner for the subject above could be "Do you think I would enjoy a holiday in this place too?" The candidate would just be expected to say something like: "Oh yes. Some people think that they don't need the time at all and will start straight away. you will have 1 minute to prepare for it. if you have time.The follow up question to end Section 2 is not so important that it needs to be practiced as it only requires a few words as an answer. First of all. use your preparation time and make notes. However. Finally. don't try and write out your whole talk word for word." Or: "Maybe not. I think so. Someone starting straight away does not get any advantage at all over someone who takes the full minute to prepare. You could say: ." You can see that nothing very long is required. maybe make a note of something from your own experience connected to the talking theme. You could be saying why the place is so special to you. You don't have enough time. you could be just finishing and still have 45 seconds left to talk. how you get there what you do when you're there and explain why this place is so special for you). Looking at the question above (which is a typical layout for this section) you can see that there is a main question (Describe a favourite holiday destination that you like. what should you write in your notes? First of all. For example. In your notes quickly jot down one or two ideas for each of the questions. It might be too hot for you. Very often these people will dry up early and be at a loss about how to continue. so that they will remind you about things to talk about when you look at your notes during your talk. These questions are here to help you as they give you ideas to talk about and give your talk a bit of structure. So. Use your time.) and then 3 mini-questions following (Say when you first went there. it asks you to talk about these things so you should talk about them. Before you begin your monologue. it is easier to talk at length. As you run out of ideas you could give an example out of your own experience. At this point I'd like to explain about the 1 minute preparation time and the notes that you can write during it. When you are talking about something from your own experience. for the question above.

Section 3 Section 3 really carries on from where Section 2 left off. the examiner might choose to ask you questions about tourism and the airline industry."Actually why I like the place so much is shown from something that happened to me the last time I was there.
