IELTS Writing Task 2 Sample Questions

To help you prepare for IELTS writing task 2, I’ve compiled some sample questions. These are based around some of the more common topics seen in IELTS tests over the last few years.

To prepare, choose a topic at random, and think about how you would answer the question.

  • What type of essay question is it? Opinion (one side of an argument) or discursive (discuss two sides of an argument)
  • How would you structure your essay? What would each paragraph contain?
  • Brainstorm some vocabulary and language structures for the essay.
