A person who has interesting new ideas or opinions – IELTS Speaking Part 2 Sample
Describe a person who has interesting ideas or opinions
- who this person is
- how you know this person
- what interesting ideas/opinions he or she has
- and explain you think why his/her ideas are interesting.
I’m going to talk about my friend, Hardy, who is very good at languages and always has a lot of interesting ideas when it comes to language learning and teaching. He is a fellow teacher at my workplace so we have had a lot of opportunities to work together.
He is fluent in THREE foreign languages, English, Chinese and Japanese, in addition to his mother tongue. So you can imagine, as a language teacher, he has great advantages.
Although language comes to him naturally, he knows that for others it may not, and always tries to come up with new methods to help language learners improve faster and achieve better results. In addition to imparting knowledge, he also does it in an interesting way. For example, at the start of each class, he would have all the students stand up and play some warm-up games instead of going straight into doing routine teaching stuff. Some of the games are even invented by himself and I must say they are all well thought out. I learn a lot from observing his classes and look forward to working more with him in the future.
