In this video, I go through an answer to this Part 2 IELTS Speaking cue card:

Describe a lazy person you know

You should say:

  • Who it is

  • How you know the person

  • What makes this person lazy

  • And explain how you feel about this person

The language in the video is useful for other Part 2 IELTS Speaking topics as well.

Often in IELTS Writing Task 2, you get questions that ask you to write about the government. As a former IELTS examiner, I have marked many IELTS Task 2 essays and one of the most common things I saw was 'the government' used over and over again. This is a red flag to an IELTS examiner (a warning) because they do not like repetition. Watch this video to learn some useful and complex words and phrases for writing (and talking in IELTS Speaking Part 3) about the government.


In IELTS Speaking Part 1, you might get asked about lists. In this video, I teach you complex language that can be used in other topics and in Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 of the IELTS Speaking test.
