The IELTS Speaking Test
Speaking a foreign language is a skill, like playing a musical instrument. You don't just learn how to do it – you have to practice.

Welcome to my website. My name is Chris Green (男). I was an IELTS teacher (口语) and an IELTS Speaking and Writing examiner in Beijing. I'm now in Sydney, Australia.
This website used to exist as "www.yasi-kouyu.com.cn" but now it has a new name and a new home here at http://englishlab.net.
Please excuse the amateurish appearance of this website. I am an amateur at website creation! And I am using the cheapest, simplest software to do it.
[This is my real website! See here for my comments about the other copies of this website.]
The purpose of this website is to provide documents and audio files to help students prepare for the IELTS Speaking test. I plan to develop and add to this site over time and you will be able to see a record of the changes that I make by going to this page: Last Change - November 24, 2016
For about half of the current speaking test topics (Sep-Dec 2016 period), go here. This costs $10.
For non-Chinese readers of this page: "yasi" is the way Chinese people say "IELTS". This website was originally written for students in China and you will occasionally see some Chinese writing here. But don't worry, if you are not Chinese you will still be able to use this website!
