Today you’ll learn band score 8 IELTS vocabulary about plants.

You never know what you’ll be asked about on the IELTS Speaking Exam!

There are some random topics out there, such as mirrors and robots in Part 1, or cake in Part 2.

Recently, a YouTube subscriber to IELTS Energy TV said that she was asked to talk about a plant in IELTS Part 2, and was lost not only in that part, but in Part 3 as well, because the topics for both are connected.

So, today we’ll learn some vocabulary about plants, and in the upcoming videos you’ll learn from my sample Part 2 and Part 3 answers.
