4 Tips for Expressing and Justifying Opinions in IELTS Speaking

Some questions in Part 2 of the IELTS Speaking test would require you to talk about your opinions. Here are some tips for you to properly answer them.

1. Always remember to provide reasons for your opinions. Likewise, it would really help you get good scores if you could give examples for your points.

2. In Part 2, you would also be given a task card and 1 minute to think about what you're going to say. Take advantage of the time by jotting down notes.

3. When you answer, use linking words and phrases to connect your ideas. Avoid giving one-word answers or short phrases.

4. Finally, in making your notes, just write down keywords since you only have 1 minute to organize your thoughts.

Next week, you'll be seeing some tips when you're required to speculate in IELTS speaking.

Cheers. :)
