IELTS Speaking Questions on Colours.

Practising for fluency means that you must speak English, and the good news is, you just need to answer a few IELTS style questions every day to begin to become more fluent. You don’t even need someone to listen to you to become more fluent; in some ways, it is similar to training at the gym or learning the piano because it is about brain and body coordination.

Watch this video on how to speak about colours in English then practice with the questions below. Read out each question and then answer it. It is that simple. Make yourself start speaking right away without pausing to think for too long a time.


Have you got a pen and paper ready so that you can give yourself one minute to prepare for the cue card?
