IELTS Speaking Actual Test in India & Model Answers

Speaking Part 1

We have given some sample IELTS Speaking topics which are frequently asked in the test, practising on these topics will improve your band score.

1 What is your full name?

Well, I am  “Mohit Kumar”.

2 Can I see your ID?

Of course! Here it is. 

3 Where are you from?

I am from Chennai, Tamil Nadu, which is the 4th largest city in India and is also the leading commercial center of South India. The capital city, formerly known as ‘Madras’, is widely famous for its culture and white-sand beaches.

4 Do you work or study?

Recently, I graduated and joined a digital marketing company where I am working as a social media Intern. I contribute to website redesigning, perform keyword and cost/benefit analysis, monitor and assist with online outreach and promotion using social media platforms. And I closely work with different team members who are amazing and friendly.

5 Do you like rain?

Yes, absolutely! I love the smell of the damp soil when it rains. The typical showers that occur either seasonally or at unexpected times are just the best. They freshen your mind and bring a cool atmosphere.

6 Has it happened to you that you were without an umbrella or raincoat, and it started raining?

Yes, it has happened to me, a number of times. The weather is unpredictable and downpours can occur at any time. When I was in school, I never carried an umbrella or a raincoat as a result of which I got drenched.

7 Do you think rain affects people’s mood?

Of course, it does! My mood gets elated during a downpour. The heavy rains indeed have a negative effect. But it is also true that they have a soothing effect on everything around us. The rare arrival of rain brings a sparkle of happiness and life on earth and this uplifts our spirits.

Speaking Part 2

Describe an interesting neighbor

  • 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 neighbourhood 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 favourite. When I was younger, Charlie and his wife usually came over to our house on weekends where we had a barbecue and cold drinks together and Charlie would make special chocolate cookies for me every time. My first impression about him wasn’t that pleasant though since he grew a 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 storyteller 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 learned a lot from Charlie and he is like my unofficial godfather, which makes him hold a very special place in my heart.

Vocabulary For Cue Card

  • Middle-aged: no longer young but not yet old
    Eg: The startup was found by some middle-aged men. 
  • Intriguing: very interesting because of being unusual or not having an obvious answer
    Eg: The movie had an intriguing climax. 
  • Be off the charts: much better than usual
    Eg: The new song by Taylor Swift is off the charts. 
  • Impression: an idea, a feeling or an opinion that you get about somebody/something, or that somebody/something gives you
    Eg: The genuineness of the little girl left a great impression on her grandparents. 
  • Softie: a kind, sympathetic or emotional person
    Eg: Although my grandfather looks terrific, he’s a real softie at heart. 
  • Mother hen: a person who likes to care for and protect people and who worries about them a lot
    Eg: The coach mother hens the players. 
  • Underlying: important in a situation but not always easily noticed or stated clearly
    Eg: You never knew the underlying motives of a robber. 
  • Appealing: attractive or interesting
    Eg: I bought this painting as it looked appealing to me.

Speaking Part 3

1 Do you think people’s relationships with their neighbours today are the same as they were in the past ?

It’s noticeable that relationships among people in this modern society have significantly altered over the last few decades and I reckon that it’s a positive change. Most people are no longer as friendly and helpful as they used to without getting something in return, especially in urban neighbourhood. If you could easily run into a small group of women gathering to talk about nonsense things many years ago, it probably takes you a while, if not forever, to find one in the city nowadays. People live in their own world with limited contact with their neighbours.

2 What are the differences between neighbours and friends?

These two are first different in definition. Neighbors are those who live geographically near you, while friends are people attached to you by affection or esteem. They don’t have to be near you; however, they are always there for you in one way or another.

Vocabulary For Speaking Part 3

  • Significantly: in a way that is large or important enough to have an effect on something or to be noticed
    Eg: Health issues can be significantly reduced if you follow a good diet regime. 
  • Alter:  to become different; to make somebody/something different
    Eg: She altered her version of the story. 
  • Reckon: to think something or have an opinion about something
    Eg: The teacher reckoned that the student will get good marks.
  • In return: as a way of thanking somebody or paying them for something they have done
    Eg: We gifted our neighbours a beautiful vase in return for a painting. 
  • Attached to:  liking someone very much, or loving them
    Eg: Meera is attached to her grandmother. 
  • Affection: a feeling of liking and caring about someone or something
    Eg: She has a great affection for her pet. 
  • Esteem: a feeling of admiration and respect for someone
    Eg: The veteran faculty members are held in great esteem in my institute.
