IELTS Speaking Test | Part 1
What is your full name?My name is ...
Can I see your ID?Yes, of course, here you are.
Where are you from?I’m from [name of city].
Do you work or study?I work, I’m a Marketing Manager.
Describe your job, please.
Under me there are several key account managers, who deal directly with clients and then they have their own teams of specialists and assistants.
My role is a key position within the company and I have to work closely with many other departments such as the sales department, finance, and production, in order to coordinate certain aspects of our marketing campaigns.
My job also involves many meetings and regular contact with our head office in the USA. That is where the head of marketing is located and the marketing department there is responsible for a lot of the global marketing initiatives which then become national ones handled by my department.
Would you like to do the same type of work in the future?
What is your aim?
How important is writing for you?
Do you prefer handwriting or typing on a computer?
Why do you think handwriting is vanishing from our society?
I don’t believe handwriting will ever vanish completely, but it will certainly become less and less important in everyday life. Like many other things in the past – it has become almost obsolete thanks to the various technologies we have and use on a daily basis.

IELTS Speaking Answer | An important conversation
We all sat down, I think it was a Sunday afternoon, to talk about it. My parents and my brother were there, and me. I told them all the reasons why I wanted to move to Australia and why I thought it was the best option for me and my life in the future and then I asked them all individually to tell me what their thoughts were on the matter.
They all took turns to tell me what they thought and also to ask me some questions and I answered them as best as I could. We discussed what the difficulties there might be, how it would affect the future of the family as a whole, and how we could make things easier throughout the whole process.
My parents were most concerned about me being in strange country all by myself, but they also realized that it would be a tremendous opportunity for me to build a very different life to the one they have had here.
My brother was all in favor of the idea and was very excited at the thought being able to come and visit me over in Australia.
It wasn’t a particularly difficult conversation, although it was still a long one; we talked for hours about all the different aspects and things that would be involved. At the end, we were all clear about what I would do, and more or less the timeframe within which things would occur.
It was definitely one of the most, in fact probably the most important conversation I’ve had in my life so far, because it was about a big change in my life, and one that also affects the people most important to me - my family.
Overall, talking with them about all the things I had already thought about related to moving was a very helpful process, as having to explain everything in detail made things even clearer in my own mind, which was a good thing.

What is the role of conversations in our life?
What are people talking about on a daily basis?
What are the basic differences in conversations between men, and between women?
For example, most men love talking about sport and cars and things like that, I know that’s being very general, but, anyway, while many women prefer talking about things which they like. I sometimes think that the conversations that women have might be a bit more serious than those men have – but that’s just an impression I have.
A lot depends on the actual individuals involved in the conversation. I mean, we can all be silly, funny, or serious when we want to be, can’t we? And I know I’ve had some silly conversations with some friends – and serious and deep conversations with others.
Why do you think this is so?
I guess if you studied all the conversations you would probably find that both men and women talk about the same things throughout their life – just at different times and in different ways – it’s because we’re all different; men think differently from women, there are some things which are more important to each of us, but we still talk about all the same important things - we just do it in different ways.
You could say the same about almost everything, couldn’t you? Men drive differently from women, men and women work in different ways too – there are many things in life which men and women do differently, not just the way they have conversations.
