IELTS Speaking: work or study?

These are common questions at the start of the speaking test:

  1. Do you work or are you a student?
  2. Do you like your job / course? Why / why not?

Example answers:

  1. Before I came to England I was working as an accountant, but at the moment I'm studying English because I hope to do a Master's here.
  2. Yes, I really like my job because it's interesting and I work with a great team of people. OR: Yes, I enjoy studying English, but my real aim is to do a Master's and then find a job in an international company.


Don't ask the examiner: "Do you mean in my country or here in England?" - it doesn't matter. Don't worry if you have a job and study at the same time - you can mention both.
