Hello again,
I was looking through my website today and realised that I hadn’t posted the IELTS part 2 speaking topics for Jan-April 2020 (sorry for that). Even though it is likely that some of these topics will change in May, it could be a little more difficult than normal to find out the new questions with the test centres in many countries being closed. Therefore, I’d advise using this list to prepare for common topic areas rather than specific questions. For example, focus on travel as a topic and try to master speaking about the different places that you have been to/would like to go to in your life. If you work through this list systematically, you will be well prepared for any question that comes your way in part 2. 

I promise to have the new part 2 questions on my website as soon as possible in May 🙂
