IELTS Speaking Sample & Feedback: Mohmad -Describe a member of your family

Rob3Hello everyone,

I am going to start a new series of sample part 2 speeches, each followed by a suggested band score and an action plan which can help the student improve. Please note that for the assessment the IELTS public criteria have been used so the score might differ slightly from an official assessment. You can find them here.

Here is a sample speaking task performed by Mohmad. It’s on a common style of part 2 topic, namely describing people. In this particular one, he describes a member of his family. Enjoy….

Describe someone in your family. You should say:

                Who he/she is

Mohmad
Mohmad

                What he/she looks like

                What kind of personality does he/she have

and say what kinds of things you do together.
