Congratulations to 3 Keys IELTS student Warisa, who just got the overall 7 she needed!

A subscriber to our YouTube channel reported on her recent Speaking Exam, and asked for some help with those questions.

In Part 2, she had to “describe a piece of clothing you wore for a special occasion.” So today, I’ll give my sample answer for this IELTS Part 2 cue card, and in the next lesson I’ll give sample answers for the related Part 3 questions.

Before watching today’s video, I recommend watching my other videos:
