Today you’ll hear sample band 8+ Part 3 answers about children and commercials.

The topic of advertising has become more and more common on the IELTS Exam.

It could definitely be part of a Writing Task 2 question.

Also, it has popped up in Speaking Part 1 recently, and in episode 440 of the IELTS Energy podcast, Lindsay and I give sample answers to these questions.

In Part 2 as well, candidates have been asked to describe a memorable commercial they’ve seen.

That is why we’ve offered specific vocabulary related to advertising, and, today, we’ll cover sample IELTS Speaking Part 3 questions and answers, focusing on the connection between marketing and children.



IELTS Part 3 Questions

Question 1: Do children care about advertisements?

Question 2: How can advertisements affect children?

Question 3: Should there be laws against advertisements targeting children?

As I am a parent, I have strong feelings about this topic.

In my answers, notice how this comes through in my pronunciation, and try to mimic all or part of my answers to feel how this expression comes out.

Remember, getting a 7+ for Pronunciation doesn’t only rely on your accent, it mainly comes down to your intonation and stress, or your ability to vary your tone according to the tone of the answer.

Also, note how I mostly use personal experience to support my Part 3 opinions and reasons.

Using personal examples is totally acceptable, even in this more formal part of the Speaking Exam, as long as you are using formal communication to express these ideas.

After watching the video a couple times, try answering these IELTS Part 3 questions yourself!
