Part 1 Speaking test questions: holidays

Some people might tell you that Part 1 of the IELTS speaking test is not that important because it is the shortest part of the test and it contains the easiest questions. Wrong!

Part 1 is equally as important as the other parts of the test, and in many ways it is the most important because it the part of the test when the examiner will make an initial judgment about your level in relation to the IELTS band scores.

The examiner expects you to be a bit nervous at the beginning of the test so don’t worry if you make a few mistakes, but at the same time you should try your best to demonstrate a good range of structures and some colloquial language that is commonly used in everyday conversation.

This video gives you some useful expressions you can use on the topic of holidays and relaxation.

An overall band score of 7.0, that was the target IELTS score for me to qualify for a nursing job overseas. With iPass, you get a band score of 7.0 and even more!

I remember during my English proficiency test practices and reviews, the iPass team was always a helping hand. Their intensive proofreads of all the Writing practice tasks helped me to achieve a band score of 7.0, and for a non-native English speaker like
me, the team’s toolkits and immediate response and correction helped me identify common mistakes and have given me tips to improve my writing abilities.

Jenny helped me through the Speaking tests really well! The Skype calls and video conferences helped me survive the actual Speaking test through immersive conversations and actual simulation of the sub-test. With their sessions, the iPass team made it easy for me to overcome my jitters and anxiety.

My experience with the iPass team was the easiest and most convenient tool that helped me with my exam. With continuous practice and with the team’s help, you will eventually land where you desire. Kudos to the iPass team and may they continue to prosper!
