IELTSスピーキングの内容

IELTSスピーキングの流れ

IELTSスピーキングは試験官と面談する形で実施され、試験時間は11分~14分

❶スピーキングのテスト会場に入る

テスト時間の30分前~15分前に会場に入ることができる。会場に入ったら、IDの確認、写真や指紋を取り、順番を待つ。

❷テスト部屋に入る

スタッフはテスト部屋を案内してくれるので、自分のテスト部屋を見つけて入口の前で待とう。

❸個人情報の録音

テスト部屋に入ったら、試験官はまず今回のテストの日付、場所、受験者の名前と試験官自身の名前等の情報を録音する。そして試験開始!

 

試験の内容

IELTSスピーキングテストは、Part 1, Part 2とPart 3に分かれている。

Part 1

Part 1は日常会話の感覚で、3つぐらいのトピックについてそれぞれ3-4問聞かれる。所要時間は3.5-4.5分程度。

Part 2

Part 2は試験官がランダムにトピックカードを選び、トピックカードに基づいて1分間準備、2分のスピーチをする。所要時間は3-4分程度。

Part 3

Part 3はPart 2の延長線上にあり、試験官が聞きたいことが出題される。4-5分程度。

Part 3はより抽象的な質問が多く、質問内容は試験官の好みに左右される。

 

問題プールと入れ替えルール

知らない人もいるかもしれないが、IELTSスピーキングのPart 1とPart 2は決まった問題プール(約50個のトピック)があり、この問題プールは4ヶ月ごとに更新されている。

事前に該当の期(1期目:1−4月、2期目:5−8月、3期目:9−12月。1月・5月・9月はスピーキング問題の入れ替えの時期)の問題プールを把握しておけば、ある程度答えを用意し、該当の期(4ヶ月の間)の本番でスムーズに対応することが可能なのだ。

問題の入れ替えが行われても、100%新しい問題を入れ替えることはない。基本的には、問題プールに下記の三種類の問題がある:

 

①完全に新しい問題

該当の期において、出題頻度が相当高いので学習の重点になる

 

②今まで出題頻度の高い過去問

これも学習の優先順位度が高い。

にゃんこ先生
例えばPart 1の「Work or Study」や「Home」は出題頻度の高い過去問で、必ず準備しなければならないね。

 

③過去に出題された問題(普通の過去問)

できる限り対策準備する。

IELTSスピーキング例題集+解答例

パート1過去問とモデルアンサー

Topic 1 Study

1. Do you work or study?

I’m a freshman/sophomore/junior/senior student at Tokyo University. Currently, I’m studying Finance and I hope to become a trader after graduation.

 

2. Which university are you attending?

The university I am in is called Tokyo University, which is a famous/a leading university in Japan. I’m really proud to be a student there. Personally, I hope to join the workforce as an engineer after graduation.

 

3. What are the most important qualities of a teacher?

It seems to me that the key qualities of a teacher are patience, dedication, and caring. Teachers are expected to treat their students well. So, they have to be patient and shouldn’t get angry at students a lot. They should also dedicate themselves to teaching and educating students. Beyond these, teachers need to provide care to students who encounter difficulties to make sure their students can succeed at school.

 

4. Who is more important for you at school, teachers or students?

I think students are more significant. I mean, the teachers play a critical role at school. But the other students enrich my experience of the classes. The diverse background of my classmates provides me the exposure to different ideas, which arouses my interest in attending school. I really enjoy that. So, to me, the students are more important.

 

5. Who helped you more at school, teachers or students?

I think the teachers probably assisted me more at school. Even though I really loved hanging out with the other students, teachers were definitely far more helpful. They taught me things that contribute to my future career and life. This is huge.

 

6. What do you do when you are not studying?

I like to explore different kinds of gourmets when I am not studying. You know, our country is second to none in the food culture. Traditional food such as ramen noodles and sushi are my favorite. I have discovered many good restaurants, and it is enjoyable to invite family and friends to dine there.

 

Topic 2. Running

1. Do you like running?

Yeah, I enjoy running. It’s one of the simplest ways to exercise. All you really need is a pair of running shoes. It’s a good way to destress while also improving your health.

 

2. Do you think running is an excellent way to stay healthy?

I think running is an excellent way for people to stay in shape. A lot of times, those people who enjoy running tend to be in good health. Also running is a cardiovascular exercise, which is good for your heart.

 

3. Where do you usually go running?

I usually run in a park near my home. It’s perfect for running because there’s a path that goes through the whole area. Actually, I think anywhere quiet and beautiful is nice to run in. I really like parks and other public spaces.

 

4. How often do you go for a run?

Usually, I try to go for a run at least once a week or so. Unfortunately, due to my hectic schedule, I haven’t gone for a run in over two months now. I think I will go back to my old routine after finishing my current project.

 

5. When was the last time you had a long-distance run? Have you run a long distance before?

I think the last time I had a long-distance run was in college. I was competing against other athletes in an event. We had to run around a huge track four times. I won third place in the competition.

 

6. Do schools organize running activities?

Yes, most schools do. We had running activities to help us keep fit. We even had races to motivate us to run as fast as we could. It was really fun.

 

7. Do you like watching running races on TV? Why?

Yeah, I do. Even though it’s not live, it’s still really exciting. I like trying to guess which runner will win. It keeps things exciting.

 

8. What kinds of sports programs do you like?

I really like watching NFL games. They’re so intense. There’s always something exciting happening. Actually, football is one of my favorite sports. So I like watching professional league games whenever I can.

 

Topic 3. Concentration (Low frequency)

1. When do you need to be focused?

Whenever I’m studying for exams, I need to be focused. I tend to get distracted easily, therefore I have to stay completely focused. Otherwise, I won’t be able to study efficiently, I will end up with difficulties in recalling what I have prepared. So I often ensure there is no distraction before I jump into the study.

 

2. What may distract you when you are trying to stay focused?

When I’m trying to stay focused, my biggest distraction is definitely my phone. When I have my phone next to me, I can’t resist playing it. I might frequently pick it up to check if there is a new message or anything fun on Twitter. There is no way for me to study with my phone by the side.

 

3. What do you do to help you concentrate?

Basically, I choose to find a quiet place and put my phone away. A quiet place, such as the corner of a library, can largely reduce the distractions, so I can easily stay concentrated. Besides, it is equally important to ensure my phone is not in front of me. When I have my phone next to me, I can’t resist playing it. So better to leave it in my school bag.

 

4. Is it difficult for you to stay focused on something?

Staying focused can be difficult because of potential distractions. I mentioned my phone is my biggest distraction, because the temptation to keep checking my phone is a serious problem. The solution is to turn it off and put it in my briefcase until my task is completed!

パート2過去問とモデルアンサー

Topic 1. School in childhood

Describe a school you went to in your childhood

You should say:
Where it was
What it was like
What you learned there
And how you felt about it

Ever since I can remember, the first educational institution I went to was the kindergarten, which is the only school that gave me no stress at all.

The kindergarten is within walking distance of my home. It’s very easy to identify because the outside of the building is very colorful and painted with all kinds of cartoon characters. Other buildings nearby are all in one very dull color, so you can see a very obvious contrast. I remember when I was in kindergarten, there was a giant blue slide and some other playground equipment like a sandbox and a seesaw. There were also tons of toys in the classroom, like toy blocks and puzzles.

As for the teachers there, well, I can only remember one teacher who was a nice young lady. The only thing I can recall is that she taught us how to play puzzles. I was obsessed with them and always tried to solve questions with them by myself. The teacher always asked us to play puzzles together. We often tried to see who can figure the puzzle out first.

Anyway, in the three-years I spent there, I was really carefree. I had a close bond with the kids there because I was never tired of playing with them. Even though I was kind of naive and innocent at that age, I was able to enjoy the happiness of attending kindergarten.

過去問・例題の使い方、パート別の練習方法

今回紹介した模範解答だけでなく、ネットで探せばいろいろな人が書いた模範解答があると思うが、回答例をそのまま使うのは絶対ダメ!

ネットで公開している回答例をそのまま使うと、本試験で似ているような答えが複数出てきて、低いスコアになるか、高いスコアであっても無効になる可能性がある。

 

模範解答を書き換える

回答例は全ての受験生に適用できる訳ではないので、自身の状況に合わせて答えをアレンジし、自分の言葉で書き直すことがおすすめだ。

例えば、回答例では、サッカーが好きだということであれば、同様の表現や言葉遣いを使って、野球や水泳などに書き換えたり、友人と一緒に食事するのが楽しいという答えを、図書館で本を読むことが楽しいというように書き換えることができる。

このように回答例をアレンジしながらご自身の回答を作っていこう。

 

録音して練習

スピーキングは、口に出さないとなかなか上達しない。普段から過去問で練習することがもちろん大事だが、練習の際必ず録音し、その後自分の録音を聞いて、自分の口癖を把握するのも重要。

1分2分の回答の中、5、6回も「I think」「Well」「You know」「Very」とか使っていない?

 

一つの単語が繰り返しに使われそうな場合、必ずパラフレーズの言葉を用意しよう。

例えば、「I think」を、「I suppose that」、「 to my best knowledge, I believe that」で言い換えるとか。

また、練習の時、回答の途中で止まってしまうことは良くあるはず。どういうタイミングで止まりがち、そこはどうやってうまく繋げていけるかを考えてみよう。

 

イディオム・フレーズを蓄積

同じ意味を伝えるのに、少し言葉遣い(イディオムやフレーズも)を変えたらスコアが変わるかもしれない。

例えば、sameをmake no differencesに、totally differentをmake a big differenceに、like to read booksをbook loverに。このようなパラフレーズの品詞が違う場合は、文法が間違いやすいので注意しよう。

IELTSのスピーキングに使えるフレーズやイディオムは、下記のフォームから無料で提供しているため、活用してほしい。

パート1:頻出問題は必ず準備する

頻出問題は以下のようなトピック。

  • Home(どんなところに住んでいる?周りの環境はどう?将来どんな家に住みたい?等)
  • Movie(どんな映画が好き?いつもどこで映画を見る?)
  • Study(専攻は何?自分の専攻が好き?どの科目が好き?等)
  • Weather(どんな天気が好き?)

 

Part 1の回答ポイント

Part 1の回答は、短すぎると流暢さが見られない、長すぎると試験官に止められるので、数センテンスで十分。

身近なトピックをご自身の言葉で、流暢に問題に答えるようにしよう。

 

パート2:複数のトピックに対応できるようなネタをいくつか用意

約50個もあるPart 2のトピック。

我々のIELTS Speaking 7.0+パッケージにはそれぞれのトピックに応じてストーリ・回答を用意しているが、実際の対策では、50個のストーリーではなく、複数のトピックに対応できるようなネタがあれば、対策準備の負担はかなり軽減される。

 

Part 2の回答ポイント

2分程度で話せる内容にする。ロジック的にストーリーを伝える能力を見せる。

ここのロジックとは、論理的に何かを分析することではなく、単純に文と文の前後関係のことを指してる。ストーリーを伝える際、but, so, while, althoughなどの接続詞を正しく使えることが重要。

内容の真偽は採点対象ではないため、自身の経験ではなくても構わない。

 

パート3:Why・How・What等のキーワードから、聞かれそうな質問を想定する

Part 2でスポーツのトピックが聞かれていれば、Part3では

  • Why「なんで(Why)このスポーツやる?」
  • Which「どの(Which)スポーツが流行っている」
  • What「このスポーツをやるにあたって何(What)が必要?」
  • How「(メジャーなスポーツじゃない場合)どうやって(How)やる(ルールの説明等)?」

などが延長線上で質問されることが予想される。

 

また、良いところ・悪いところ(Advantage・Disadvantage、Benefits・Problems)もキーワードの一つ。

例えば、What are the advantages and disadvantages of online education?

 

Do you think 〇〇 should…/Do you think it’s good to (if)…?もありがちな質問。

例えば、Do you think it’s good to work in a big company? Do you think schools should teach students how to cook?

 

比較(男性と女性、若者と高齢者、過去と現在、日本と海外等)も考えておこう。

例えば、Do children learn faster than adults? What’re the differences in shopping behaviors between men and women?

 

Part 3の回答ポイント

個人の主張(論点)を話す。

正解・不正解がないので、自分の観点をロジカルに説明できる理由があり、その理由を支えるDetailがあって、人に納得してもらえるような回答であれば問題ない。

5-6センテンス程度で十分だ。
