Band 9 Sample for Common IELTS Speaking Part 1 – Topic: Music

IELTS Speaking Part 1 Topic: Music

1. Do you like music?

Yes, of course I like music. I couldn’t live without it. It’s what allows us to escape from reality. Furthermore, it connects people. I think no matter what country, religion, or culture we come from, we all enjoy music.

2. What kind of music do you like?

Well, this is a bit of a tough question because I have a diverse taste in music, but I’ll say my favorites are modern pop, 90’s alternative, and hip-hop of all ages. I can always sing along to pop songs and I enjoy keeping up with the modern hits. 90’s alternative takes me back to my childhood and makes me feel so nostalgic. Lastly, who can resist moving and shaking when you hear hip-hop beats?

3. Do people in your country like music?

Yes, people in my country are a big fan of music. As the US leads the entertainment industry, I would say people are really into music and that it is a big part of all of our lives. It has played a large role in telling our history, such as the blues and jazz, and will continue into the future.

4. Were you listening to music when you were younger?

I would definitely say so! 90’s songs are the soundtrack of my childhood. I remember driving along old country roads bobbing my head to the sound of 90’s alternative and pop hits. As my parents were both into music, they always brought their love of music to my sister and I. When I hear those songs now, it triggers bittersweet memories.

5. Do you think music will change in the future?

As with all things, I believe music will continue to change in the future. Firstly, I believe it will rely on technology even more than now. I wonder if there will even be like humans playing music then. I could imagine robots playing songs that are programmed into their brains. It’s tough to say!
