IELTS WRITING TASK 2 ESSAY QUESTIONS

Updated: Jun 10

When my students take their IELTS test, I ask them to come and see me so we can debrief about the test. My classroom is very close to two of the main testing centres in Sydney Australia. One is IDP Australia and the other is at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS). When they come to see me, I ask them to remember the essay writing questions. Then I try to find an official published test question to match their memory or I change their question to make it as clear as possible. Here is a collection of those test questions as my students remember them.
