You will be given a cue card with information that you must address in your speech.He has amazingly funny stories to tell and he always gives so much of his time and energy to his fans.I don’t really know what I’d do if I met Bryan Cranston because I’ve never actually met a famous person before.In the above speech I’ve addressed all the points from the cue card, although not necessarily in order.I first said who Bryan Cranston is and then explained why he is famous, before moving on to why I want to meet him and what I would do in that situation.When describing famous people for IELTS, remember to include some appropriate adjectives and adverbs for descriptive purposes, and always give reasons and examples to justify your statements.This will boost your IELTS speaking score significantly.
