Ielts Interview Preparation-What to be Expecting from the interview Ielts ?

The interview is maybe the worst part of the IELTS exam for every candidate, IELTS. Most people think worried because they know that every word they say would be appreciated. I have seen candidates take the IELTS test five times and even the fifth time; they were so tense for the first time. If you know how a prepared interview, you will not be surprised by anything that should make you a little more relaxed about the whole experience. Here's what to expect:

4-5 min Part: General questions about your work / home and main topics
2 min Part 2:   Monologue. We need to talk about two minutes non-stop
4-5 min Part 3: Discussion. During this part, you will connect in a conversation with the examiner.


When you enter the room for the interview, you will be sat in front of the examiner. You'll see more than a few documents and forms in front of the examiner. During the interview, the examiner will take notes, but this should not worry you. He / she only takes note of the time (examiners must follow very strict time format), but never on your score.

The examiner will welcome you and introduce him-/herself then he / she will ask you for your name and your ID will then either be asked about your work / studies or where you live. Since this is how every interview begins, you should get ready possible answers to these questions.

After asking questions about your home or your work / studies examiner will ask you two sets of everyday issues. It can be read or music or something that everyone knows about. In any case, you need to give long answers and try to sound natural.


Then 4-5 minutes part, the examiner will ask you to speak for one to two minutes on the topic for which you get 1 minute to prepare. You will get a piece of paper and pencil to take notes and your topic. The examiner will read the topic for you, and you will have one minute to take notes and prepare. Read this post for note taking IELTS tips.

After one minute, you will have to speak for two minutes non-stop. The examiner will not say anything during this part. We need to keep talking until the examiner stops you.

The last part will be a discussion / conversation that will last 4-5 minutes. In this part, you will be asked a few questions on the subject; I had to speak for two minutes. This time the examiner will respond to what you say and ask questions according to what you say.

In the end, the examiner will say “Thank you. This is the end of the talk test. “When the interview ended, he / she will let you know the result, so no need to ask.

Stay tuned for another post in which I will explain how the test is scored talking.
