IELTS Speaking Part 2: describe your feelings

IELTS Speaking Part 2: describe your feelings

The last bullet point on the task card for speaking part 2 usually asks you to describe your feelings. Often, this last point contains the word ‘why’ e.g. explain why you liked…

So, it’s a good idea to prepare some good words and phrases that help you to express your feelings in a more interesting way. Instead of saying “it was nice”, why not say “it was an unforgettable experience”?

Study idea:
Go back through my speaking lessons and search for full sample answers for part 2 (like the one I wrote last Friday). Go to the last bullet point in my answer, and copy any words or phrases that I use to express feelings.

For example:

  • I was filled with a sense of panic and fear
  • I felt so embarrassed
  • What I liked most about… was…
  • I was amazed at how…
  • I enjoyed learning…
