  1. Hello! I really enjoy this site. Thank you very much for giving so good explanations!!! To be honest, I am poor at speaking part 2. In my past exam I was asked to describe the work of art I had seen last time. I got confused and couldn’t answer well. As a result, I got a 6.5 I think I would have got higher if I had covered this part better. What do you suggest? Thank you in advance.

    • Hi I have a few ideas:

      1. Look at lots of different part two questions and think about how you would respond to them in the real test. And if you’re lucky you might get something similar!
      2. Realise that even though you were asked to talk about a piece of art in your last test, you can actually talk about something else that you have prepared. Let’s say you have prepared to “describe place of natural beauty you have been to ” … And let’s say you have prepared to talk about a beach. Well, you could talk about a painting of a beach… And that each could be the beach that you have prepared to talk about. So in this case you will have lots to say and lots of high-level language preprepared for this topic.
