Trust me. It will take more time to prepare six different templates. With some practice, you will be able to use just one template to deal with many ielts speaking part 2 questions. Simon's approach is less efficient and less flexible, which is very likely to restrict your thoughts. Don't make yourself become less creative and less productive.

These are common topic areas, not templates. Trust me, it’s a good idea to be ready for them.

Mr.Simon Greetings,
I would like to ask you about IELTS Speaking test part 2 in the Cambridge IELTS_8

the question is:
Describe a time when you were asked to give your opinion in a questionnaire/Survey

So here I should answer under "Describing an activity" that I have done?

Please some advice to help me prepare well.
Thank you,

Dear Elias, You may describe about your university presentation in terms of projects, publication or thesis. Because during any presentation we might have some specific queries from our teachers who generally act as judge.

Hi Simon,

You are absolutely correct. In my opinion, the preparation of these topics can give us confidence, and during the exam, it helps to make a story from our preparation.


Here's an old lesson in which I gave advice about that topic:


is it possible to get an 8 band score of speaking by having prepared and memorized answers?

I want to improve my general language skills to get IELTS score 7 at least and apply a job I need
thank you
