PDF for IELTS cue card

PDF IELTS cue card

PDF for IELTS cue card

The IELTS cue card question is in Part 2 of the IELTS speaking test. It consists of a topic statement (question) with three bullet points indicating information or details that you should include in your response.

You will be asked to talk about the topic in the cue card for between 1 and 2 minutes. Note: 1 minute is the absolute minimum you must be able to talk for otherwise your IELTS speaking score will be negatively affected.

Ideally, you should be able to talk for around 2 minutes on any topic which you are presented with – as this will provide a much better sample of your English speaking for the IELTS examiner to evaluate; and therefore your IELTS speaking score should be higher.

The examiner will give you the topic cue card, you can see an example above (download PDF for IELTS cue card guide at the end of this post) – and explain that you have 1 minute to think about your answer (plan it); the examiner will also give you a piece of paper and a pencil so that you can make some notes about what you want to say in your answer. TIP: don’t rush to start – take the full 1 minute to think of examples and vocabulary you want to include as part of your response.

The examiner will indicate when it’s time to start.

Try to keep talking and avoid any long unnatural pauses while you are talking about the topic on the cue card during Part 2. The examiner will let you know when to stop (normally after 2 minutes) so don’t worry if he/she interrupts you while you are speaking – it means that the time limit has passed and if you are still speaking then you’ll probably have given a good confident and fluent answer.

The PDF for IELTS cue card download contains some examples of IELTS speaking test cue cards with sample answers, all of which are approximately 2 minutes when spoken naturally.

You can use the examples in the PDF for IELTS cue card as a guide to practice and develop your own speaking skills for the IELTS speaking test. TIP: record yourself speaking your responses to the questions and then listen to yourself and analyse how you could improve your answer. Then practice some more.

Good luck with your IELTS test!
