DRESS CODE AT WORK - IELTS Speaking Part 3
1. Speaking part 3 description
In part 3, you will be asked about broader questions which are related to the topic in Part 2. This part will last for 4 to 5 minutes. This will also be a conversation between you and the examiner. But in this part, you will need to show your understanding on those issues in a much deeper way than in Part 1. For instance, in part 2 you might get asked about a touristic place that you visited in recent years. And then in part 3, you might get asked about how Australians love to go to the beach.
