IELTS Speaking Task: Part II – Business Talk

Woohoo! Back with a speaking task! Super excited about this one because it’s been a long time coming. I will advise all of you to tune into my YouTube video so you have more of an understanding. Here’s your speaking task II!

Describe someone you know who started a business.

Who this person is…..

What work this person does….

Why this person decided to start the business…

Describe whether or not you would like to do the same work as this person.

All right, everyone. It’s time to dissect these sentences one by one.

Look at the keywords (the who, what, where, etc) and make short notes in Roman Number style.





After you’ve done this, try remembering the most important events that occured in the individual’s life. The “Why” is the big one that you should create a sound story from.

After that, your explanation should be an additional 30 seconds. This will total out to the allotted time needed to complete the task.

What I don’t want you guys doing is answering the questions. I want you to tell a story, and given this topic, this is the perfect time to do so. Check my YouTube video down below!
