Speaking Off Topic in IELTS Speaking Part 2
Today is my ielts speaking test.
In part 2 I made a mistake. I have been given a topic on the place where you go to read.
The answer would be library, but I talked about my aunts home where I used to go for reading. I think its cannot fulfil the question requirements.
How will it affect my band?
Will my score be affected if I went off topic in IELTS speaking part 2?
I did not speak for 2 minutes. I did a mistake in round 2 topic given to me is about article that i read in a magazine. But I told her about article I read on Internet. Will it effect my score.
I was fluent during entire exam. But she rephrased her question in part 3.
Did I go off topic and how will this affect my IELTS Speaking score?
Hi, i had my speaking exam this morning.
In task 2 probably i went out of topic. The question was talking about an event that was making me noise. I did not realise at the moment and i spoke about a friend of mine that left the soccer field and then we cannot play football because we were in odd number and we were angry with him.
I thought 'noise' like 'nuisance', is it correct or did I go out of topic?
If i went out of topic, how can this mistake influence my band?
I think part 1 and 3 were okay, with a good pronunciation and fluency.
Which is probably my final assessment in speaking?
1) task 1, task 2 and task 3 have the same value? There will be a medium of the three different band?
2) if my band is: listening 5.5, reading 6, writing 6, speaking 5,5. What will be my final score? 5,5 or 6?
I didn't stay on topic
by arslan ali
I want to know I have done my speaking test yesterday and my topic was:
"What's the indoor games you played as a child"
Yes I have covered all the question but I just forgot she asked me about childhood.
I said all the scenario I play that yet and in end I just talked about as a child as well but examiner stopped me I think I one mint can it be affect my band???
Off topic...Speaking part 2
Speaking part 2! Off Topic
I was asked to describe about a place where there is lot of water:
- Where is it?
- Why do you like it?
- What other people usually do there?
Unfortunately, I think I spoke off topic about some things.
I mentioned about a hilly region where there is lot of rivers and fresh water source, and people here do cultivation and such, with help of these water sources.
But now i think, beaches and other sports activities are the answers to this cue card.
Would like to know if this is fine or that I have misunderstood the question?
How likely am I to get band 6, considering part 1 and part 3 were fine.
Can we ask the examiner to change the speaking topic in the 1-2 minute talk?
Is it possible to ask the examiner to change the topic on which candidate has to speak for 1-2 minutes.
Did I answer my IELTS speaking part 2 correctly?
Hello IELTS Buddy,
I have just finished my speaking test.
For the section 2 I got a subject "you are planing to organize a very first out door activity"
The questions were:
What, where and what equipments etc."
I was explaining a birthday party that I'm planing to organize for my friends.
I explained that it will be my first out-door activity for my office friends and will be hosted in beach area.
Somehow I think I managed to cover all the question until the examiner stopped me.
So when I checked internet for the Outdoor activities there are lot relate to win surfing, mountain climbing etc.
Further, in 3rd section there were questions about physical fitness.
I think I have got the second question's topic wrongly :(
But do you think, that they will considered B'day parties organized in outdoor as an outdoor activity. If they do not what portion of marks I will be loosing for the damage? :(
Look forward to hearing your advise on this regard.
Should I have spoken about different things in the IELTS long-turn?
I did my speaking test yesterday, I did very well in section 1 and 3 but my task response for 2 is what I'm not comfortable with.
I spoke for a minute and was asked what I do when I want to relax and I mentioned going to the cinema, gym and doing shopping. But I think that's not a good response because there were better options like swimming and listening to music.
I was nervous that's why I couldn't give the right options am terribly worried because I'm aiming for a band 7. Pls advice me.

National instead of local news
by Adam chu
I made a off topic answer for speaking part 2. The examiner asked me about interesting local news, but I answered a national level news.
Today was very important test and I am very sad that I missed. I need at least 5.5.
Do you think this can strongly affect mu score?? Do you think I can achieve my score if I answered part 1 and 2 well?
A Short Journey
In speaking part 2 it was a question about short journey u disliked and i spoke a short journey i'm disliking to go often. I was good at speaking but this mistake was happened. What will be the effects on band?
An Interesting or Unusual Thing
In my speaking exam, my cue card was interesting/unusual thing you did recently.
I spoke on donating blood. Is it ok or is it going to cost me?
Sharing Something with Someone
Today is my ielts speaking test.
In part 2 I made a mistake. I have been given a topic on sharing something with someone.
I talked about my decision to share with my sister which field of study I have to choose in future. I think it cannot fulfil the question requirements.
How will it affect my band?
An interesting neighbour
(Chennai, tamilnadu, India)
I was asked about an interesting neighbour in speaking part 2. But I just explained about one of my neighbour and didn't talk anything about how she is interesting. I am so worried. Do thus effect my band score. Please reply me soon.
A country song
During my speaking test task 2 topic round I was asked to talk about a country song of my favourite and why do I like it?
I answered by saying that I like 'rock a bye baby' and the reason I like it is because of its soothing music and also the meaning of the entire song which takes me back to my baby days.
My kids I enjoy that song so much that we play it all nights to listen to it's wonderful background music. It might not be a 100% country song but we could call it a country cousin for sure.
Do you think this would make me loose my points?
Just asking. Thanks
Role or Rule?
I had my speaking test today. I wasn't sure if part two was to talk about a 'role' or a 'rule' u had at school.
I ended up talking of being responsible of the class for a month and how each student did that. Is that considered off topic? And do I get low score for doing that?
I look forward to hearing from you,
