IELTS Speaking Actual Test in Canada – April 2017 & Sample Answers

Speaking Part 1

1 What is your full name?

 Well, I am Shayari Dey.

2 Can I see your ID?

 Of course. Here it is. 

3 Where are you from?

I am from Delhi. It is the capital city of India. It is widely famous for its historical monuments.It is also famous for its metro. The culture and heritage of this place belongs to Old Delhi whereas New Delhi is the epitome of modernisation. 

4 Do you work or study?

I am working as an intern in TCS as a content developer. If things go well, I will be settling in this company as a permanent content developer. I am paid a handful. The employees here are really helpful. 

5 Do you often invite friends to visit your home ?

I do but only when we have known each other well for quite a long time. As most of my friends also enjoy staying inside like me, normally I just invite one friend then we buy some snacks home and exchange some chitchat for hours. I sometimes invite 3 to 4 friends so we can have a girl-night-in with movies or a small pyjama party.

6 Do you like visitors coming to your home ?

Only if I’m informed about the visit. I typically don’t like sudden visits that they pay when I have to open the door in my pyjamas. That kind of visitors to me is so impolite. Oh, and I also don’t like a big crowd visiting my place. They’re too noisy and most of the time I’m afraid of my property secretly being stolen.

7 Do you prefer to have friends visit you, or relatives ?

Both friends’ and relatives’ visits are meaningful to me. Since our relatives live far away, we really appreciate their efforts and time to visit us. My friends only come when they’re invited, so we don’t have much problem with time.

8 Do you often watch TV ?

I actually prefer watching TV to surfing the Internet due to its selectivity and accessibility. Because the audience can be children, teenagers and families, the content of TV programs is examined carefully and suitable time frame is arranged in order to avoid having negative impacts on them.

9 What types of TV programme are popular in your country ?

In my country these days reality shows and comedy shows are among the most popular TV programs. I guess it’s because its content is suitable for audience of any age from children to the elderly. The fans of reality shows feel interactive and familiar with the competitors while that of comedy shows generally want to be entertained with jokes and laughters.

10 What (types of) programmes did you watch when you were a child ?

Like other children, I watched a number of cartoons and music programs for children when I was a child. Tom and Jerry, Barbie, Disney series are my favorite which still get me excited whenever I see them on TV now. My mom said I also was kinda attracted to music programs for children that I focused on them completely while eating.

Speaking Part 2

Describe a kind of foreign food you have tried/would like to have

You should say :

  • When you had it
  • Where you ate it
  • What it was

Sample Answer

Well, I spent 2 weeks of the summer vacation in Malaysia to visit my friends, thus I had chances to try a lot of local foods. However, the food that I miss most since I cannot find it in my hometown is called ‘Roti Susu’.

Indian food in Malaysia is highly diverse, yet my favorite one is this food. Basically, in Malaysian, ‘Roti’ means ‘bread’ and ‘susu’ means ‘milk’. We can add some curry sauce for more flavors. Because of such simple ingredients, this food can be found in any Indian restaurants in Malaysia.

My friends who were studying in Malaysia were also big fan of ‘roti susu’ so they introduced me this food on the first day I came to visit them. Because it is sold by an Indian food court on campus, they could have it most of the time. I prefer having it without the sauce and usually it’s my everyday-favorite. Probably as the soft bread with sweet condensed milk has often been my breakfast when I’m in my hometown, the taste of ‘roti susu’ seems familiar to me.

In the future, I would love to return to Malaysia someday to enjoy ‘roti susu’ again.

Vocabulary For Cue Card

  • To be familiar with: to know someone or something very well
    Eg: Rose is familiar with the scientific names of plants. 
  • Highly diverse: including many different types of people or things 
    Eg: India is a highly diverse country 
  • Ingredients: any of the foods or substances that are combined to make a particular dish.
     Eg: The main ingredient to prepare the cake is missing. 

Speaking Part 3

1 Why do some people’s tastes change?

Well as we grow older, our tastes are also likely to change as well. The reason for this can be we don’t have time for a decent meal as most family members are on the go, meaning that the father and mother have to work longer hours to make ends meet, whereas the students must attend extra classes to keep up with their peers at school. So, we end up eating fast foods or take-aways and become used to them. The second reason is when we grow older, for health protection, we force ourselves to refrain from certain types of foods, like meat or fast food because they contain many health hazards.

2 Which are more popular in your country: fast food restaurants or traditional restaurants?

They’re both popular, but in different ways and for different reasons. I think fast-food restaurants are popular for grabbing a quick bite or snack, as they are fast and you can usually find one nearby. Traditional restaurants are more popular for special occasions or going out for lunch or dinner at the weekend when people have more time to sit and enjoy the food and the ambience of the place. They usually cost more too, so maybe people don’t go as often, but they’re still popular. I don’t think anyone would consider going to a fast food place for a special occasion – unless it was a kid’s birthday party or something similar, in which case it makes a lot of sense, as some of these places cater specially for such events.

3 Do you think there will be a greater choice of food available in shops in the future, or will there be less choice?

That’s hard to say, but I think that due to the fact that most industries are becoming more and more consolidated and there are less and less independent producers of anything, you could safely say that the choice will probably be less, as it will be dictated by only one or two giant global conglomerates in the food industry.

Vocabulary For Speaking Part 3

  • Make ends meet: earn just enough money to live on. 
    Eg: The old man found it hard to make ends meet. 
  • Keep up with: to do whatever is necessary to stay level or equal with someone or something
    Eg: She still keeps up with her childhood friends. 
  • Take away: a meal cooked and bought at a shop or restaurant but taken somewhere else, often home, to be eaten, or the shop or restaurant itself
    Eg: After a long journey, my mother was very tired to cook, so I ordered takeaway. 
  • Grab a bite: Eat something, especially quickly eat something small like a sandwich or a quick dish in a bar.
    Eg: She grabbed a bite of sandwich and left for work. 
  • Ambience: the character and atmosphere of a place. 
    Eg: The ambience of the newly inaugurated mall is awesome. 
  • Consolidated: to combine several things, especially businesses, so that they become more effective, or to be combined in this way 
    Eg: The two units were consolidated into a single division.
  • Conglomerate: a  company that owns several smaller businesses whose products or services are usually very different
    Eg: John works as a financial analyst in a financial conglomerate.
