Q3. Why did you choose to study that major?

There are many reasons for my choice. Primarily, I have an interest in Accountancy. Another reason could be because of Accountancy itself since I’ve found that my personality has changed positively. I’ve become more patient and skillful.

Q4. What’s the most difficult part of your study?

Well, for the most part, I’d say it’s the workload. I mean there are so many assignments, and students are always under a lot of pressure to meet deadlines. But on the other hand, exams are a piece of cake. They are entirely predictable, and I can pretty much breeze through them with a bit of revision.
*pretty much = almost

A piece of cake (idiom) very easy
Example: The job interview was a piece of cake for Jessy

Breeze (through) (verb) to easily complete or win something
Example: The Indian team breezed through the Pakistanis in the first test match

Q5: What do you like most about your school?

I guess the aspect I find most enjoyable is the environment. I mean, I get to study in English-speaking classrooms, and the facilities are top-notch; I mean, all the classrooms are air-conditioned and equipped with projectors. My friends and teachers are all adorable, so, all in all, it’s a great place to study.

top-notch (adj) excellent
Example: Columbia Asia is one of the top notch hospitals in the city.

Speaking Tip :

Bear in mind that you should explain your topic ideas to lengthen your sentences and show off some more advanced vocabulary. For example:

  • top school ==> competitive admission + very proud
  • accountancy ==> deal with numbers ==> overwhelming
  • workload ==> many assignments ==> pressure
  • top-notch amenities ==> air-conditioned classrooms + equipped with projectors

You can get our IELTS speaking ebook titled “IELTS Speaking Actual Tests & Suggested Answers (Ebook)” which covers all the latest IELTS Speaking Actual Tests in 2017 with Band 9.0 Model Answers to boost your IELTS score.

FAQs

Is the ebook “IELTS Speaking Actual Tests & Suggested Answers (Ebook)” for Academic or General module?

The Speaking test does not vary for Academic and General module.

What does the ebook “IELTS Speaking Actual Tests & Suggested Answers (Ebook)” contain?

It offers the following:
-> Latest IELTS Speaking actual tests in 2017
-> Band 9 model answers

Can I answer the questions with just a ‘yes’ or ‘no’?

By answering with just a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ you are not allowing the examiner to judge your language ability. Eventually, it will lead to poor scores.

What if I made some mistakes while Speaking?

It is quite common to make mistakes. But when you are conscious that you have made a mistake, attempt to correct them even as you are speaking. By doing this, you are letting the examiner know your abilities in grammar and vocabulary.

Is it ok to have a few “Umms” and “Aahs” while Speaking?

You should avoid using them, as much as possible. By using “Umms” and “Aahs” you are hinting the examier that you are in search of words.
