IELTS speaking: describing and family

This is my first ppt concerning IELTS speaking part 1, it includes a couple of general tips and also deals with the topic of family.

It starts off with a list of a few topics students will likely have to talk about in part 1. I have other ppts for these topics.

Next is a do or don't game where students decide what is good be behaviour for the exam, feel free to add more general things like smile etc :). I find that this works well with some example answers from another worksheet.

The family section starts with a table, have the students fill it out and then compare with their neighbours. Ask the students to define the words above the table and use a few in their descriptions.

Next is a skeleton answer. Students must construct an answer to the question using some of the points, but not all. They should also use the phrases on the right to add extra information to the points. Answers may vary but the aim is to ensure answers flow nicely and don't include anything unnecessary.

The next slide is an extension of the vocabulary from the first family slide. I recommend you go through them and ask individuals to make new sentences with the underlined phrases to show they know it.

Slide 7 is a selection of family questions from pat IELTS tests to give your students an authentic style test.

Slide 8 is an activity style I like to do often for IELTS where students must imagine something different from their real life and give answers based on that. Ask the students to choose a family picture and answer the questions from the previous slide in a new way.

Finally, there is a quick question slide with topics that you give at random to students for them to create questions on new topics, it is useful to test students on their quick responses.
