IELTS Speaking Part 1 – Drawing

Examiner Questions:

May I see your identification?

Yes, sure, here is my passport which I used to register for the IELTS exam, please have a look.

What is your full name?

My given names are Cassandra Erika, and my family name is Hermosso, please just call me Cass for short. 

How are you doing today?

Do you use technology to help you draw or create pictures? If yes, why?
