In this video, you’ll hear IELTS band 9 sample Part 3 answers about small business.

IELTS Part 3 questions are about more academic or formal topics than Part 1 or Part 2. You will be asked to discuss and support your views on questions related to a one central topic, such as small business.

In order to score highly, you must use impressive, high-level vocabulary, and present specific support.

These examples and details can come from your own life; however, you should try to also include support from other sources, such as current events.

Also, remember that the topic of Speaking Part 3 will always be related to Part 2. Thus, if you are asked to describe a successful small business you know of in Part 2, ‘small business’ will be the topic of Part 3.
