IELTS Speaking kiểm tra PART 2 Sample Question và Answer

by Jane Lawson at

Question: Describe a place you have recently visited. You should say:

where you wentwho you went withhow you got thereand explain why you enjoyed it.


Answer: A couple of months ago I went lớn the Greek island of Crete. We stayed in a town called Xania, which is on the coast in the north west of Crete. It is a really picturesque town with small cobbled streets, a large harbour và many ancient buildings. I went there with my husband Brendan for a one-week holiday.

We got there by various means of transport, taking a train khổng lồ the airport, then a four-hour flight, followed by a twenty-minute xe taxi ride from the airport khổng lồ where we were staying. The whole journey took around eight hours from door to door, which was a bit longer than we expected it to take, although we didn"t have any major delays, thank goodness. 

I enjoyed my stay there very much, as I had not had a holiday for ages & needed lớn switch off from working. We didn"t vày much sightseeing, although Xania itself has a long & fascinating history so went to lớn the local museum in order khổng lồ learn more about it. I spent a lot of time reading books & swimming in the sea, which I must admit was quite a lot colder than I thought it would be. I also enjoyed eating the delicious Cretan food, và walking around the ancient streets in the town. 

One of the things I enjoyed the most was going khổng lồ a restaurant called Xalkina, where they had live Cretan music every night. The musicians were playing instruments that I had never seen before, and I loved the style and tempo of the music they played. I would definitely like to go back lớn Crete one day, though next time I would probably make more effort to see the amazing sights of the rest of Crete.

This sample answer took around 2 minutes, which is the maximum time you need khổng lồ speak without stopping in Part 2 of the IELTS speaking exam. Now, try this yourself, and if possible record your answer so you can listen back khổng lồ it.
