Are clothes and fashion important to you?

Well, if I think about it, I guess that in many ways, it’s fairly important, particularly when it comes to the matter of showing my professionalism at work or my respect to other people in different situations. Although I am not a slave to fashion and don’t really follow up-to-the-minute garments, I always tend to play importance on choosing my clothes.

What different clothes do you wear for different situations?

As I have mentioned previously, the most essential criterion for me to choose clothes is the situation. I would say that at work, formal garments like sleeved shirts, long skirts and trousers in neutral or pastel color are usually my first choice. However, at usual life, something that is more casual and jazzy such as jeans, leggings, T-shirt and sneakers often makes me feel more comfortable. When it comes to party, I always have to choose dresses that enable me look hot and turn head but show my elegance at the same time.

How different are the clothes you wear now compared to 10 years ago?

Well obviously my choices for clothes have changed significantly for the past 10 years. I guess the reason lies mainly in the fact that 10 years ago, I was a student and most of the time, I wore uniforms. However, now that I have come to the business world, my clothes tend to be way more formal and professional.

Do you think the clothes we wear say something about who we are?

To some extent I would say that clothing in general often help people to make the first impression on other people. Dressing smartly in suitable situation would bring the sense of politeness and elegance. However, it is not one hundred percent true because I always consider that the most beautiful clothes a person can wear is their soul and confidence and clothes is just a tool supporting you to reflect the truly inner side of yourself

IELTS Speaking Part 2

Describe a piece of clothing that you like wearing.

You should say

  • what the item of clothing is
  • where and when you bought it
  • when you wear it
    and explain why you like wearing it.

Band 8.0 Sample Answer

To begin with, I’d like to get cracking by pointing out what type of clothes it is, and I have to go for the hooded sweatshirt which my mother gave me as a gift on my 18th birthday.
In fact, it is not only an often – worn item, but also becomes something old for me since it was a gift in my turning age of 18 milestone. This piece of clothes is in deep ocean blue and with unique black polka – dot, which is a perfect fit for my bright tone of skin. Its zip is made of pure bronze bringing a sense of comfort whenever I open or close it. The thing that also makes it so special is the large pockets attached on two sides of the shirt enabling me to store a myriad of odds at my own convenience.
To say the truth, this sweatshirt fits me like a glove and I always enjoy the comfortable feeling when I wear it. Therefore, I have used it like a thousand times and still can’t get enough of it. It is also a reminder of how my mother love and care for me in every aspects of life. Although it has become a little worn – out now, I still keep it as a precious memory in my teenage years.


IELTS Speaking Part 3

1) For which jobs are people required to wear a uniform in your country?

In answering for this question, I guess I could begin by saying something about the fact that uniform is a must – wear for the majority of jobs in my country. In manufacturing factories, for instance, it is not unusual to see for a people in labour clothes with preventive caps, gloves and shoes…whether he is a worker or a manager, all have to comply with the strict rules. Let’s turn to the corporate world, here employees are also required to follow a formal dress code like suits, shirts, or long skirts…all is for the purpose of maintaining the company’s professional image or enhancing productivity and safety among the workforce.

2) Do you think people are treated differently when they are in uniform?

When a group of people are in a unified dress code, that means there is barely any distinctions in their clothes. Therefore, I am of the opinion that there is a low chance that people would be mistreated when they all wear the same garments. That explains why nowadays, a myriad of companies are encouraging or ordering their staff to wear uniform in order to enhance their productivity.

3) What are the advantages of making children wear uniforms for school?

Well I suppose there are quite a few benefits obtaining from uniforms for children, one of them is that it eliminates economic inequalities and reduce the competition among students for showing off stylish clothes. Parents would need not shop for expensive wardrobes of their children. At the same time, the second bonus might be that there will be less distraction at schools and children will not strive to keep up with the fashion trends but focusing on their main duty – studying

Main Tips

In speaking part 1, your answer should focus on fluency.

  • Don’t hesitate and answer quickly.
  • Don’t be too short and go absolutely straight away to the point (never go off the topic). For example, when asked about Yes/No Questions, don’t simply answer “Yes” or “No”, try to make your response longer by using a wide range of language features, for example:
    “Is healthy eating important?”
    X Yes, healthy eating is important because….==> limited answer
    V Well. I guess in many ways it’s vital, especially when we consider that a healthful diet can help to prevent a variety of diseases and health problems, such as diabetes, and obesity. Nonetheless, we also have to understand that eating unhealthy food in moderation is not overly harmful so my answer is yes – a big yes

For IELTS Speaking Part 2

You should pay a sharp focus on ideas and vocabulary with redundant languages, linking words, linking phrases, uncommon vocabulary and idioms. This is your best chance to impress the examiner with a myriad of uncommon vocabulary and idioms. If you want to prepare for common topics (Relationships ,Family, Love, Friendship)HolidaysEnvironmentSportPeople – Physical AppearancePeople – Personality and CharacterAccommodation, etc.) in IELTS speaking part 2, you can follow this lesson.

In IELTS Speaking Part 3,

Focus on your answer structure, not grammar or vocabulary. You don’t really have time to think about good vocabulary or grammar in this part; therefore, just concentrate on answering the question, following step by step answering structure. You should follow 4 steps below to give long, detailed answers in part 3.:
Step 1: Answer the question directly
Step 2: Explain your answer (give out the reasons for your answer)
Step 3: Give an example
Step 4(optional): Explain the opposite/alternative (what would happen if…)

These steps will help you give longer answers without repeating yourself. You can read the following example by Simon to fully understand them and know how to put them into practice.
Question: Do you think that it’s better to have clear aims for the future, or is it best to take each day as it comes?
===>(Answer)I think it’s best to have a good idea of what you want to do with your life, especially in terms of studies and career. (Why) Having aims allows you to plan what you need to do today and tomorrow in order to achieve longer-term objectives. (Example) For example, if you want to become a doctor, you need to choose the right subjects at school, get the right exam results, and work hard at university. (Opposite) Without a clear aim, it would be impossible to take the necessary step towards a career in medicine, or in any other profession.
