In IELTS Speaking Part 3, you often have to talk about travel and culture.

Are you able to use interesting, native speaker vocabulary to talk about this common IELTS topic? Can you speak fluently and confidently?

Travel is actually a very common topic on all parts of the IELTS exam- Speaking, Writing, Reading and Listening. Having knowledge in this area, therefore, is extremely beneficial for IELTS candidates.

In IELTS Speaking Part 3, it is vital that you organize your answers well. Give your opinion straight away, support with specific examples and details, and then give a one sentence conclusion.

Watch this video about organizing your IELTS Speaking Part 3 answers in this way, and hear me explain why this strategy is so important to get a high score.

Returning to the topic of travel, it is important to note that Americans say vacations, while Brits say holidays. So, don’t start talking about Christmas, for example, when you are asked about travelling on holiday!

In today’s video, I will give you sample Part 3 answers for the following questions:

What are the advantages of taking one long holiday, instead of several short ones?

How might air travel change in the future?

As you watch the video, please complete the following exercises: (You can watch the video as many times as you need!)

  • Take notes on how I organize my answers.
  • Write down all the linking and transition phrases that I use.
  • Jot down any interesting words and phrases that I use.
  • Then, practice answering the questions yourself.
  • Lastly, try to write your own Speaking Part 3 questions about travel, and ask a speaking partner. Also practice answering the questions yourself.
