IELTS Speaking Actual Test (Part 2) in August, 2016 & Band 8.0 Sample Answer

Describe a person (you know), much older than you, who you admire.

You should say:

  • who this person is
  • how you know this person
  • how this person has influenced you
  • and explain why you admire this person

Sample Answer

I would like to describe one of my teachers who taught me at high school. She had a great influence on me and was a role model whom I look up to.

Her name is Yen and she taught me Math for 3 years of high school. She was in her 50s, and so she had a lot of teaching experience. Actually, we met each other almost every day as she was also my form teacher. She cared about us as if we had been her sons and daughters. For example, she always brought some kinds of medicines so that whenever her students got a cold, coughed or something like that, she would give them the medicines immediately.

Above all, I was most influenced by the way she taught us in class. Her thoroughness in teaching inspired me to study Math, even though I had not been interested in the subject before. Thanks to her effective teaching method, I was able to pass the university entrance exam with a high Math grade. Besides, I was also influenced by her lifestyle, which was so simple and worthy of respect that I really wanted to copy her. As she is a warm-hearted person, she always gave us advice about any problems we faced. At times, I felt that she was like my friend who I could share everything with.

Although we have now all graduated from high school, my friends and I often visit her at the weekends to tell her about our daily life at university.
