i got the following question on my exam in March:

describe a person you know who travels a lot by plane.

Hi Simon, thank you very much for your interesting website.
To answer at your question, I found these three questions in the official Cambridge Books:

1. Describe a conflict at work you once had ( the nature of conflict, why the conflict occurred, what you felt at the time of the conflict, what you had to do to resolve it)

2. Describe an important choice you had to make in your life.

3. Describe a meeting you remember going to at work, college or school


Describe a habit in your friend that you want it ?
Describe a TV programme that you enjoy watching it ?

I got there two questions in my exam in Liverpool Community College

An interesting story you shared with someone.
a. From where did you hear it?
b. Whom did you share it with?

Describe a beautiful sky you watched.

I got this question on 2 Dec last year which nearly drove me to despair. After the exam, I worked extremely hard in an effort to work it out. Fortunately, I found the example of a sky with amazing auroras and I successfully adapted it to a range of topics including a holiday, a foreign country, etc.

hi Simon

Hi I wanted to share my cue card question (IELTS speaking part 2 GT 2/4/2016)

What the thing you borrowed from other which was really meaning to you?

I share the writing task 2 question I got today in China.

When new towns are planned, it is more important to include public parks and sports facilities than shopping centres for people to spend their free time in.

To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?

I tried my best to keep it to be exactly the same as the original one for obvious reasons.
