2 steps IELTS speaking test

Do you ever run out of things to say on the IELTS Speaking test?

What should you do in this situation?

This happens a lot in Part 2 of the Speaking test.

Follow two steps if your mind goes blank and you run out of ideas:

  • Be honest. Say something like “That’s all I can think of to say on that topic.” “I can’t believe it’s not two minutes yet.” This will also help with your anxiety. If you say what you are experiencing, you will feel much more relaxed.
  • Next, think of something else to say. Think of anything in your personal experience that connects to the topic in any way.
