Speaking Part 2

Describe an interesting neighbor

You should say:

  • Who the person is
  • How long do you know the person
  • And explain the reason why you think the person is interesting

Sample Answer

My family live in a truly friendly neighborhood where people are more than willing to support each other whenever somebody is in need, which is also why we are all very close. Among them, Charlie – a kind middle-aged man and my father’s best friend – is the one I find most intriguing, yet mysterious at the same time.

IELTS Actual Tests Questions (February - May 2021) with Answers

Charlie has been living next door for how long that I can hardly recall, but I know for certain that his baking skill is off the charts – another reason why he’s my favorite. When I was younger, Charlie and his wife usually came over our house on weekend where we had barbecue and cold drinks together and Charlie would make special chocolate cookies for me everytime. My first impression about him wasn’t that pleasant though since he grew full beard and had a scary eagle tattooed on his bicep, which was terrifying for any little girl. In spite of his not-so-friendly appearance, Charlie is a true softie who acts like a mother hen occasionally. Then I understand why there’s a saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. Besides his talent in the kitchen, he is such an amazing story teller that I kept tailing him, literally, as a kid for more extraordinary tales. What makes his stories appealing is not only his warm voice but the underlying messages that he tries to deliver through them. I have learnt a lot from Charlie and he is like my unofficial god father, which makes him hold a very special place in my heart.

  • Mother hen: a person who likes to care for and protect people and who worries about them a lot
    Eg: “This coach will be a mother hen to your new team”. 
  • Underlying: important in a situation but not always easily noticed or stated clearly
    Eg: She was not sure of his underlying motives. 
  • Appealing (a): attractive or interesting
    Eg: The red velvet cake looked appealing to me. 

Speaking Part 3

1 How is the neighborhood in your home country?

Neighbourhood in my country is truly great as it syncs with my current lifestyle and caters to my specific needs. There’s a departmental store, a supermarket, a medical center, a pharmacy, a mini mall, 4 to 5 food outlets, and a town library located in my neighborhood. 

2 Is it difficult to get along with neighbours in city areas?

In my opinion, there’s no difficulty in getting along with neighbours in the city. Of course, some people can take time to become friends with. But if a person learns the basic neighbourly etiquette, then it becomes easy for him to get along with people.

3 What can be done if your neighbours are loud and noisy?

People are more likely to have disputes with neighbours. Out of all such disputes, the most common one is neighbours being loud and noisy. Such neighbours will render the whole area uninhabitable. Therefore, you can catch up with your neighbour in a public place and talk to them regarding the issue.
