Therefore, it is really useful and convenient to master speaking in English using topics and questions for them for IELTS. The topics remain unchanged for many years, the questions to them are updated a little. For example, questions about mobile applications that have not been there before were added. However, the essence of these questions - communication, has remained the same.
