NEW IELTS Speaking Part 2 in 2020 (Jan – May 2020) – Updating 

Speaking test in IELTS is a test about which the student does not have much confidence. The reason behind this is that many students scared about which kind of question the examiner may ask them. This is why they find it hard to do this because they need to think about the answer for a while and in the between the answer they do not have time to think. Also, a pause in your answer can be the reason for your less band in the test. So, it’s better to think about your answer first that you can finish in 2 minutes. For this, you need to practice well. Here for your practice, we are going to provide you some expected IELTS topics of all the time.
