IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is the most popular English efficiency test and is essential to study in overseas countries. The test is divided into four sections, out of which, the speaking section is the most challenging of all. The IELTS examiner tests the speaking of students based on 3 parts.
Part 1: This is your preliminary round which involves you speaking for 4-5 minutes straight without being interrupted. You will be asked about your home, interest, work, life, etc.
Part 2: In this round, you will get a particular topic and you will be given 1 minute to prepare. You then have to talk about that specific topic for about 2 minutes and will be asked follow-up questions.
Part 3: In this part, you will engage in a conversation on more abstract ideas and issues. This part of the test lasts between 4 -5 minutes.
