Mock Exam 3- IELTS Academic – Speaking 1


The Speaking section of the IELTS Academic is composed of 3 parts:

Ex 1 – Introduction & Interview: The examiner asks you questions about general subjects (family, work or studies, hobbies, interests) for 4 to 5 minutes.

Ex 2 – Individual Long Turn: The examiner gives you a card asking to speak about a specific subject and to include certain specific points. You have 1 minute to prepare a 2-minute speech.

Ex 3 – Two-way Discussion: You discuss with the examiner some general, abstract problems, linked to the subject of Ex 2 for 4 to 5 minutes.

The Speaking section of the IELTS Academic evaluates your oral comprehension and your coherence, fluidity, vocabulary, and pronunciation.



This part of the test begins with the examiner introducing himself or herself and checking the candidate’s identification. It then continues as an interview. this interview feels more like informal conversation with 5 questions …

I have had a job, I used to work in a restaurant as a waiter. It was a really busy restaurant and I would be on my feet for long hours. It was a really enjoyable experience, though, for the most part, and it helped me a lot in other areas of my life, too. Before I started working, I was terrible at organising my time, and learning what to prioritise. Thanks to that job, I’m much more adept at those skills, these days.
