Hello, Mr. Green! 

My name is XXXX, I'm from XXXXXX.

I have registered for IELTS test on July 4, 2016.

I would like to know if it's possible to get the Speaking topics which are valid for that date in my country.

I'm ready to pay you 20 AUS dollars to get that topics using PayPal, if it is. 




My Reply

Right now, I'm still working on updating the information from the January - April questions and I have only just started looking at the May - August information. So, sorry, it's not much use sending any money to me at the moment. 

The topics and questions in use in your country should be about the same as in China, although there might be slight differences. 

You can find "pretty good" versions of the current information (although there are a few minor English errors in this information) at these web pages - 

Part 1

Part 2 

When I have finished my preparation, my information will be better than on those web pages, although the main topic titles will probably be mostly the same, and sometimes my information will be almost exactly the same as on those web pages.

The progress in updating my information on the Speaking test questions has been a bit slower than I expected it would be. So I won't have the information available until early next month, July.

I am no longer updating this website and I am no longer following candidates' reports of the IELTS Speaking test. So I am no longer sending people updated information by email. But I can give you the following information about the Speaking test topics & questions for January to April, 2015 -
