IELTS Speaking part 3: Two-Way Discussion
This part of the IELTS speaking test lasts for 4-5 minutes. Here the examiner will ask you to discuss some abstract ideas (intangible, complex), non-personal questions. You might be asked up to 7 questions on a variety of themes related to the same topic that you discussed in part 2. This last part of the speaking test actually gives you the opportunity to possibly speak more about some points you missed in the part two. In most cases you will be asked to say whether you agree or disagree
- Use key phrase from the topic to introduce your opinion and connecting words to link ideas
- Express your opinion with confidence and justify them with relate examples
- Speak at length but stay on the topic
