The IELTS speaking test takes between 11 and 14 minutes and is in the
form of an oral interview between the candidate and an examiner.
During the interview you will need to answer questions asked by the
interviewer, speak at length on a topic selected by the interviewer and
give and justify your opinions on a range of issues related to that
The interview has three main parts:
* some general questions about yourself, your life and your interests
* a short talk on a particular topic
* a discussion of issues linked to the talk in part 2.
