For both the actual IELTS exam and TakeIELTS.net’s online IELTS mock tests, the Speaking test is made up of three sections. By understanding what happens in these three sections of the Speaking test, you will be better prepared.
In Section 1, which lasts about 4 to 5 minutes, the examiner will ask you questions about yourself. Topics might include your work, your family, your home life or your interests.
In Section 2 of the Speaking test, the examiner will give you a card with a topic and a few set of questions. You will have one minute to prepare yourself and take notes on the topic; you can then speak on the topic for two minutes.
In Section 3, the examiner will ask you questions around the topics given in Section 2 and allow you to discuss them in more details. This section will also take approximately 4 to 5 minutes to complete.
