Daily Routine – IELTS Speaking Part 1, 2 & 3 Topic in 2018 Sample Answers

Speaking Part 1

1 When do you wake up?

Well, I’m a morning riser, and I wake up at about 5 o’clock. Getting up early not only makes me feel refreshed and productive, but it also prevents my skin from having wrinkles.

2 What is your daily routine?

Well, in the morning, I get up early to have a light breakfast and hit the gym at about 8 a.m. After one hour of workout, I leave the gym club and go to the supermarket to buy food to prepare lunch and dinner. In the afternoon and evening, I go to my workplace and start working from 14.00.pm until 21.00.p.m.

3 What part of the day do you like most?

I enjoy late night when I come home from work, and everything is filled with dim grey light. To me, it’s a great time to kick back on the bed to have a chit-chat with my roommates, surf the Internet, listen to music, or watch a favourite movie.

4 Do you think it is important to have a daily routine?

Yes, it is. A proper daily routine will help you arrange your activities in the most sensible way. Without a daily routine, people usually do things spontaneously, which could waste their time and reduce their work efficiency. I think those who are disorganized can gain more benefits from creating a daily routine.

5 What’s the difference of routine between you and your teenager’s times?

Well, I can say that there’s a vast difference between my life then and my present life. You know, when I was a teenager, besides focusing on study, I had much free time to pursue my interests like watching films or listening to music. In contrast, my routine and time management has become stricter now. Since I graduated from university and began working as an English teacher, I’m so occupied with my work that I have little leisure time.

6 What is the busiest part of the day for you?

Afternoons are the busiest time of the day for me. I work for an UK company and my day starts at 2:00 PM. So by 3:00PM I will be bombarded with client calls and emails and will have no time to breathe.

7 Do you usually have the same routine every day? (or) Do you usually do the same things at the same time each day?

Mostly yes. I’m an early bird though I go late to bed. On weekdays, my work starts at 2:00 PM and I wind up by 11:00 PM. On weekends, I go shopping and sleep a little early. I follow this schedule every week and there aren’t any major changes unless we have celebrations.

8 Have you ever changed your routine?

Yes, it underwent a change about a month ago. I had a very tight schedule and was struggling to manage my targets. So I had to work late until 2:00 AM.

9 What would you like to change in your daily routine?

My work starts at 2:00 PM. So I laze around until then. I want to use that time productively. Some of my friends go to the gym and I would like to start an exercise regime as well.

10 Do you like to plan what you will do each day?

Yes, I would like to. Planning keeps the day in your control. The more organized you are, the better your life becomes. I’m pretty orderly at work and I want to be the same way in my other activities as well.

11 What do you usually do at this time of day?

[Assuming it is morning] It is 10:30 AM now. You can find me watching television or reading a magazine. Sometimes I go out and talk to my friends.

12 How do you organize your study time?

I’m pursuing a course in Management along with my work. I usually study on the weekends because I want an entire day to myself. I don’t study on weekdays as it becomes stressful.

Speaking Part 2

Describe an occasion when you got up very early.

You should say :

  • When it happened
  • Why you got up early
  • Who you were with
  • And explain how you felt about getting up early.

Sample Answer

I’m a night owl who usually gets out of the bed quite late, ranging from 9 am to 10 am every morning. However, there were some occasions when I was forced to get up early, and I still remember the last time that I had to get up soon.

In September of last year, I was offered the first job in my life. At that time, I was a fresh graduate. Thus I had to move to X city to join training sessions at the Head Office of the company. My supervisor booked the flight ticket. Unfortunately, she had no choice but to book an early flight for me at 6 a.m. As I received the ticket information, I was quite anxious about whether I would miss the flight or not. I set off the alarm on my phone, asked my mother to wake me up in time. Finally, I made it, though I felt so sleepy. I fell asleep as soon as I was on the plane. It was such a nerve-racking experience as it was the first time I went on a plane, dealing with all kinds of stuff at the airport in the early morning on my own. Luckily, some kind people were willing to help me with my suitcase, which made that experience less harrowing to me.

As a youngster, I was on the habit of staying late at nights and getting up late, too. However, I feel I should change this custom to improve my health.

Describe your favourite part of the day.

You should say:

  • when it is
  • what you do then
  • how long this part of a day lasts
  • and explain why this is your favourite part of the day.

Sample Answer

This is an exciting topic for me to talk about. I want to share with you my favourite part of the day.

I am not an early riser because I often stay up late at nights, that’s why I can’t enjoy the morning much. In contrast, the evening is part of the day that I love the most.

To me, the evening starts at the time my working day ends, at 5 pm every day. After that, it’s my choice to do anything I want. There is no fixed things for my evenings. I keep an open mind and do what I want.

For example, in some evenings, I would ask my friends out for a meal, a movie or a coffee. We get time to share with others anything we want or to keep us updated about others. In some other evenings, when there are some interesting seminars, I would join and listen carefully to the speaker’s sharing. When I am moody or tired, I would prefer a private time in my room, turning on soft music, and reading books or just let my mind free. To some people, the way I enjoy my evenings is wasteful as they believe that I can do more useful things. However, to me, those kinds of evenings help me to refresh myself & recharge my energy, thereby making my life more enjoyable.

I firmly believe that we should take a certain amount of time off, doing nothing, do what we like and take a look back. It can help us to discover more things about life and ourselves. This kind of exploration is critical for us to know about ourselves; thus, it can set up an excellent way to develop our strength as well as minimize our weakness. It also boosts our performance in study or work. For this kind of activity, the evening is the best option. 

Vocabulary For Cue Card

  • Early riser: someone who often get up early in the morning
    Eg: He is an early riser, thus, he can enjoy mornings.
  • Keep an open mind: to let  go with the flow, don’t have a fixed plan
    Eg: I just keep an open mind on what to do when I go on holidays.
  • Ask someone out: to invite someone to go out (to something or someplace) [on a date].
    Eg: Finally he asked her out for a movie.
  • Take time off: be duty-free in a certain period.
    Eg: If possible, I would take time off to go on holiday.

Speaking Part 3

1 Do you think people need to have a day-to-day plan? | Do you think people can still do their tasks if they don’t plan them?

Yes, because a day-to-day plan is a key to effective time management. And if you have a clear plan for the day,  you can make the most of your time and accomplish other tasks of the day. In my opinion, not everyone needs a plan. Few can still do their daily tasks without a plan.

2 Do you think it is possible to learn how to manage your time?

Yes! I plan my tasks for the day and implement them accordingly which helps me to manage my time. One can learn to manage their time by setting goals and prioritizing them wisely. It’s better to set a time limit for each task and complete them at the earliest.

3 What are some possible advantages of using a time management app for your phone to help you plan your time?

Some of the possible advantages of time management apps are that we can quickly review the profitability of our projects, prioritize and deliver work on time, reduce our stress levels, make bill payments on time, and so on. The time management app can be ideal for understanding all the extra budgets as well. Hence, they are productive and effective.

4 Why do you think some people don’t plan their day in advance?

Some people avoid planning their day in advance because they are worried that their plan won’t work or is not good enough. While some people are good at making a plan, they procrastinate when it comes to implementing the same.

Vocabulary For Speaking Part 3

  • Effective: successful or achieving the results that you want
    Eg: The coronavirus vaccine is effective.
  • Prioritize: to organize (things) so that the most important thing is done or dealt with first.
    Eg: It’s always difficult to prioritize between work, school, and family.
