Spread the love


Hello, everyone!
Today I would like to share some info about my IELTS exam. This is a good thing to know whether yours is coming up soon or even if you are a Teacher that would like to share it with your students and help them get prepared for their test.



I took IELTS twice: first time in 2015 and last time in July 2016.
I didn’t write anything down after my first exam. But the last time I took the test I made sure to write down everything I could remember, so I could share it with other test takers and teachers.


Both times I did the General Training IELTS.
In this last time particularly, the Speaking part of the test was on the same day of the rest of the exam.
Below you can check the subjects of each part of my exam:


Consumer behavior / Shopping habits / Marketing
Do you think people buy too much nowadays?
The ways people buy today
What do people buy
Online X in stores: whats more popular now?
2 min talk = Tell me about an item you recently bought and that you are very pleased with: what is it / where did you buy it / why are you happy that you bought it.
Computers: do you think you still have a lot to learn about computers so that you can succeed in your job?

What computers skills do you have?
Which computer skills would you like to learn?
