Recent IELTS Speaking Part 1 Questions 2020

I’ve asked my students who took the IELTS test this year to report the question they were asked in the exam. I collected all of them and made a list below so you can practice at home.

Even though IELTS comes up with new questions every time, we can “predict” what examiners might ask based on what they have done before. For that reason, it is important to investigate and gather different types of questions in order to practice our answers and study some vocabulary.

Below are some IELTS Speaking Part 1 Questions reported by IELTS candidates who took the exam between the months of January and June 2020. You Can Also Check the Speaking Part 2 Questions 2020
