Recent IELTS Speaking Cue Card Topics August 2019

August Update: Here we are with updated Recent IELTS Speaking Topics which include part 1 introduction questions, cue card, and part 3 discussion topics. Sometimes examiner asks you from one particular speaking test. In this case, you will ask all related question like if in part one something started with hobbies then part 2 cue card will surely relate. However, some examiner doesn’t strict to one set. They just turn on the pages and ask you questions of a totally different type.

Like in my case, in the first part it was about my likes. Do you like travelling? Something like that. Then cue card was described as a library you visit frequently. However, part 3 was related as it was all about reading. Do people read while travelling in your country?

Leaving my test, let’s talk about the most recent questions. Which could be helpful for candidates preparing for the IELTS Speaking test. For my personal tips to improve your score read Ways to improve score IELTS 6.5 to 7.5.

Going through the Speaking Topics would surely give some idea about the real test. Just use it for practice, it’s not a good idea to give the examiner the prepared answer.
