This page has two separate tests, so that you can repeat the exercise after you hear my feedback from your first test. Click the tabs below to change between the practice tests.

Listen to the instructions and read the text. Then take one minute to prepare your answer: if you listen to my recording of the text there is a one-minute pause during the playback and you can write some notes on a piece of paper. When you are ready, click the “Start recording” button and allow the plugin to use your microphone (follow the instructions on the player, it requires a click in the player and a click in your browser’s menu bar). You must talk for a minimum of 2 minutes. If you speak longer, the examiner will stop you after 2 minutes and 30 seconds. There is a timer on the voice recorder which you can use. When you are finished, use the form below to request a mark and/or feedback. Good luck!

Special offer! Because this is a new product, the first three individuals who take the CAE or IELTS quick speaking test will get a mark and feedback for free (normally €5)! 

Describe a party that you enjoyed.

You should say:

  • whose party it was and what it was celebrating
  • where the party was held and who went to it
  • what the people did during the party

and explain what you enjoyed about this party.

Describe an idea you had for improving something at work or college.

You should say:

  • when and where you had your idea
  • what your idea was
  • who you told about your idea

and explain why you thought your idea would make an improvement.

Now record your answer:

Now that you’ve recorded your test, how do you want me to mark it? Do you just want to know your score? Or would you also like a recorded message explaining what was good and what you can improve? Use the form below to request your feedback.

If you can see this message, free feedback is still available! Send an email to from the email address that you entered into the recording and I will put your feedback on the Quick speaking test feedback page. Thanks for participating!
