Hi there. My name is Emma and in today's video we will be looking at the IELTS,
which is a test that ESL students take when they want to immigrate to certain countries such as Canada, Australia, England.
It's also a test some universities require students take.
So if you want to study at an overseas university, you may have to take this test.
So we will be looking at specifically the speaking section of this test, part three.
So the speaking task has three different parts to it; part one, part two, part three.
We will be looking at part three.
Okay, so first I will explain what happens in part three of the IELTS speaking test,
and then I will look at some tips on how to do well, and also things you should not do.
So let's get started.
First of all, it's important to know how long this test, this part of the test will take.
It takes between four to five minutes.
And it's different than part two. In part two, the student is expected to speak for about two minutes and there's no interruption.
In this part of the IELTS, it's more like an interview.
The examiner asks you some sort of question, you respond.
They ask you another question or they might ask you to go deeper into the first question.
Okay? What types of questions are there?
Well, sometimes they'll ask you to predict something, to analyze something, to compare.
They might ask you to give your opinion.
Often times, you're looking at the future as well.
So for example: what sports do you think will be played in the future? Okay? So often --future questions.
Part three is based on a theme.
In part two, you're given something to describe often --
it might be a historical building, it might be a teacher you really liked, it might be an object precious to you.
Part three continues from part two, so whatever you talked about in part two,
you're going to talk about in part three, but at a more abstract level.
