Today you’ll hear four band 9 sample IELTS Part 1 answers about mirrors.

As mentioned in the previous video lesson, ‘mirrors’ are a topic you could be asked about in IELTS Speaking Part 1.

In that lesson, you learned some high-scoring vocabulary about mirrors you could use. Today, I’ll feature some of those words and phrases in my Part 1 sample answers.

Take notes on how I introduce each answer in a natural way. Also, note any transition phrases I use, along with additional lexical items that are new to you.

Additionally, you can use this video for pronunciation practice. Listen carefully to about 10 seconds of my answer, pause the video, and repeat what I say. Try to sound exactly as I do, with all the stress and intonation.

It may feel weird, and that’s OK! Practice mimicking by yourself, and then try to utilize this expressiveness in your own answers.



Finally, practice your own answers to these IELTS questions:

After you practice this group of questions, keep going! You must rehearse your approach to a wide variety of IELTS Part 1 questions.

On that note, though, don’t over-practice the easy topics, such as work/studies and leisure time. This will lead to your performance sounding mechanical and unnatural on test day.
