Sunglasses: IELTS Speaking Part 1 Sample Answer
Speaking Part 1
Here is an audio of the sample answers given below. Please listen to it for more clarity on the Speaking Test.
1 Do people in your country wear sunglasses?
Absolutely. But since the UK has a rainy climate, they aren’t as needed as in other places. Still, people like to wear them as a fashion statement or as an accessory to their outfit.
2 Do you like to wear sunglasses?
Why yes of course, especially when I feel that I look tired. Moreover, I like that they can tie a whole outfit together (make the outfit look better). Moreover, when I drive on sunny days, sunglasses are a must.
3 Do you often wear sunglasses?
Not too often actually because of the climate here. I’d say I have to wear them a couple times a month on the rare occasion that the sun comes out. As I mentioned before, I feel I need them most when I drive on sunny days or when I go on holiday to the beach.
4 Where do you buy sunglasses?
I tend not to splurge on (spend a lot of money; luxury) sunglasses since I have the tendency to lose or break them, so I usually just buy knock-off (copy) brands from street vendors. I’ve bought and lost several pairs of knock-off Ray Bans which were just fine for me. I feel that the shape of them suits my round face shape.
