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.

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 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 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 learnt a lot from Charlie and he is like my unofficial god father, which makes him hold a very special place in my heart.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 :

Topics : 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 contacts with their neighbours.

Significantly (adv): in a way that is large or important enough to have an effect on something or to be noticed

Alter (v): to become different; to make somebody/something different

Reckon (v): to think something or have an opinion about something

In return: as a way of thanking somebody or paying them for something they have done

What are the differences between neighbours and friends ?

These two are first different in definition. Neighbours 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.

Attached to (adj) liking someone very much, or loving them

Affection (noun) a feeling of liking and caring about someone or something

Esteem (noun) a feeling of admiration and respect for someone
