Band 9 Sample for Common IELTS Speaking Part 1 Topic: Study

IELTS Speaking Part1 Topic: Study

Describe your education

I’m on a 5 year study plan, so I’ll finish in 2 years. Next year, I’ll begin my internship at a clinic for substance addicts. I really look forward to that hands on experience. After my Bachelor’s, I plan to go onto my Master’s, perhaps even my PhD.

What is your area of specialization?

I’m a Psychology major with a minor in Spanish language.

Why did you choose to study that major?

As I’ve always been fascinated by how the mind works, I felt that Psychology was the ideal field of study for me. Furthermore, I believe I have wonderful interpersonal skills and can easily connect and empathize with others, making me the perfect fit.

What was your favourite subject as a child?

I’ve always loved Art because it helps me relax and well, I’m quite good at it. After all the strenuous hours of book work in the other classes, it was always a relief for me to come to my canvas. I feel that Art is an incredible outlet (a way to express feelings) for me.

Do you think your country has an effective education system?

To an extent yes, but I also think it can be too theoretical at times. I think they need to teach us how to use the information we learn more rather than just have us memorize for the exam. All in all, I cannot complain too much though.

Are you looking forward to working?

Absolutely! I cannot wait to put into effect what I’ve been learning for years now. I’m eager to help people with the psychological struggles that they face. I believe I can make a difference in the world.
