IMPORTANT NOTE ON IELTS SPEAKING ANSWERS

Many students request us to provide sample speaking answers on all the listed topics. Please bear in mind that mugging up answers is not the right approach for the IELTS speaking test. In this blog(also available as a PDF), we do provide answers, but not for all questions. This is done so as to discourage you from rote learning(mugging up) sample answers.

Now, few of the Sample answers that you’ll find here may be YouTube videos, or blogs with audios. PLEASE DO NOT COPY THESE SAMPLE ANSWERS IN THE ACTUAL TEST. RATHER, USE THEM TO UNDERSTAND THE STRUCTURE OF THE IELTS SPEAKING TEST. YOU MAY USE THESE SAMPLE ANSWERS TO FRAME YOUR OWN ANSWERS.

Nevertheless, if you need answers for a particular cue card topic then do put in a comment and we would love to answer it for you.
