Free Lessons, Videos & Practice Resources

This page is your gateway to high-scoring success in the IELTS Speaking test.

Here you’ll find all the IELTS Speaking resources I’ve created for you both on the website and other platforms. They’re brought together in one place to make it easy for you to find them.

They include:

  • Information
  • Tips
  • Advice
  • Techniques

Some people learn best by reading, others by listening, so most of my teaching has a dedicated web page and related videos. Above all though,

'We Learn Through Practice'.

So, use them all and Practice, Practice, Practice.

To help you do that, I’ve included hundreds of IELTS-style practice questions and lots of sample answers on many of the pages.

The IELTS Speaking Test


Topic Vocabulary

There are many common topics that come up regularly in the IELTS Speaking test. You can’t know what you’ll get in your test but it’s still a good idea to learn vocabulary related to popular subjects.

To save you time, I’ve created word lists to make it quick and easy for you to practice using the vocabulary, which will also help you to learn it. Each topic list contains IELTS-style practice Speaking questions with model answers.

Here is the current list of topics. I’ll add more as I create them. Just click the image to go straight to that topic page.
