Do you have the confidence in your vocabulary to fill the 2 minutes fluently?

In Speaking Part 2, you are given a topic card. The topic card has one sentence at the top, telling you what to talk about. There are also 3 bullet points and one further question underneath.

Remember- you are not required to cover the bullet points. You simply have to talk about the topic in that first sentence for 2 minutes.

Part 2 topics are usually asking you to describe one of the following: a person, a place, an event/experience, or an object.
