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.

Jedd - Libya (New Zealand)

I was Jenny and Nigel's student in sept, 2013... I took IELTS more than 2 yrs ago while working in Tripoli, Libya. I celebrate my first year here in New Zealand this January, and so far, looking back it was a tough journey. I would like to take this opportunity to say "thank you!" All of this was made possible with your guidance to ace IELTS beyond the band score I was hoping for. Happy new year iPass IELTS team!
