Hi Atul …First of all, I would like to thanks you for such an amazing blog. Your blogs are highly useful for someone like me who’s a self learner.
I was stumbled upon your site a month back when I was preparing for my IELTS exam. I appeared for my 1st IELTS test (GT) on 5th of March in NewZealand and had scored the following scores: L-9, R-8, S-7.5 and W-6.5 .. I was aiming for 7 in each module but missed it because of the writing section.
So I decided to resist the exam. I had my speaking test today (30th April 2016) at 8 in the morning and these are the set of questions I was asked.
Task 1-
Questions about hometown- where did I grew up, what do I like about the place where I grew up?
Would you like to live in the countryside?
Questions about History- Do you like reading History book/novels?
When did you last read about History and what does it tell you?
Do you like visiting museums and why?
Task 2 (Cue card)- mention an occasion or an event where you had experienced a lot of noise
When and where was it?
What did you do to stop it ?
Task 3- A lot of questions about pollution -specifically about noise pollution.
What are the various forms of noise pollution you encounter on the roads?
How is noise pollution or in general pollution different in different parts of the world?
Steps people should take to control pollution?
Do generally people like noisy environment or not? If yes/why?
Why do some people lie peaceful environment?
Do you prefer noisy of peaceful environment/why?
How has pollution changed over time.. Increased/decreased? (Not sure how to put this question in words but it was more about the changes in factors causeing pollution)
And there were a few more questions in Task 3 relating to pollution which I don’t remember clearly but were mainly the causes and solutions to avoid or control pollution.
The speaking test went well and now I have written exam at 12. I hope it goes well and I manage to get my desired scores in the writing exam.
Hope for the best ;).. FINGERS CROSSED ..!!
