In Part 2 of the speaking test you have to speak about a topic for two minutes. You have one minute to make notes and it is important to be able to make effective notes. This will help you a lot when you are speaking. 

Describe a memorable journey you have made

You should say:

  • where you were going
  • how you were travelling
  • why you were making the journey

and explain what made the journey so memorable

The topic is a memorable journey and you need to say where, how, why and what was memorable about it. These four things should be the things you make notes about to ensure you stay focused on the task.

Here is one way you could organise your notes:

Memorable journey

1. Where

Beach, La Guajira desert in Colombia

2. How


3. Why

Travelling, holiday with friends, guidebook

4. Memorable

Scenery of desert, local indigenous people

Some people like to make mind maps:

Other people prefer to just write key words without headings:
