101 IELTS Speaking Part Two Topic cards that tie in with IELTS Speaking Part One Students often find moving from practising the question and answer format of speaking about themselves in IELTS Speaking Part One to speaking more generally for 1 or 2 minutes non-stop in IELTS Speaking Part Two to be quite a jump. Luckily, the 6 to 8 most popular topics in IELTS Speaking Part One (e.g. Friends and Families) can also come up in Part Two (although the same topic is never used twice in the same test). You can therefore easily use easily use both Part One and Part Two exam practice questions in the same class, using the Part One questions as a warm up for the Part Two presentations. It is not possible to say which topics are most likely to come up in the IELTS Speaking Test Part Two, but the most typical questions for each of the topics that are the same as IELTS Speaking Part One are given near the top of each section below. The topic cards further down each section are ones that are more difficult to answer and/ or less likely to be in the exam. For example, it is very unlikely that students will get a task where they have to speak mainly about the future like “Talk about a subject you would like to study in the future…”. The reason for including tasks like this is to give students practice in answering a question that is very different from any they have practiced before (there is about a 50% chance of this happening in the exam, however much preparation they have done), and to help teachers tie IELTS Speaking Part Two tasks in with any topic covered in class.
