Movies are our favourite pastimes. Who doesn’t like watching movies? A good movie with a bucket full of popcorn can make anyone happy. Do you know that movies are also an important topic in your IELTS cue card section? Well, if you are fond of movies and never misses a movie of your favourite actor, this is going to be one of your favourite topics.
The questions which the examiner may ask related to this topic can mainly be categorized into two types:
- movies that you might have already watched
- upcoming movies that you haven’t watched yet.
Now for the first part, it is very easy to answer questions related to movies you have already watched. You’ll have plenty to speak on this topic. The only thing you have to keep in mind is to choose a movie you have enough insight into. Even if the examiner asks you to speak about your favourite movies, you should not choose the one that is your favourite but the one you have enough to discuss.
And for the second part, when selecting the film you will discuss, it is extremely important to make a good selection. The examiner may ask you about a movie you are planning to watch. Take time to choose one and make a list of points that you are going to cover. Don’t select the one on which you have very little knowledge because the examiner can also ask you questions based on your selection.
Your good vocabulary will always give you extra credit. Here are some good words you can use related to the topic “movie”
