Hats: IELTS Speaking Part 1 Sample Answer
Speaking Part 1
1 Do you like to wear hats?
Although hats help shield your hair and face from direct sunlight, to be honest I don’t really like wearing hats daily. My hair is always a mess after I take them off. Instead of wearing hats, I think I prefer bringing an umbrella with me.
2 What kinds of hats do you have?/ Which hat do you like?
As I’ve mentioned, wearing hats is definitely not my daily style, so generally I don’t have any hats at home. There is the only type of hat I’m particularly fond of, which is baseball caps. This kind of hat can give me a sporty and strong look, you know.
3 Where do you like to buy hats?
Since there isn’t a good selection of hats at my local apparel store, I have to buy hats from specialty headware stores, or even online.
4 Is wearing hats popular in your country?
It’s not much sought after in my country where the motorbike is the most common means of transportation, and it is a must to wear a helmet whenever you ride a motorbike for safety. I think you can imagine how much uncomfortable it is to wear a hat under the helmet. Thus in most of the case, hats are for pedestrians and fashionista.
- Sought after: In-demand; generally desired
