IELTS SPEAKING PART 1
What will you bring when you go out?
Oh, this is such an interesting question to me. Being a girl means that being neat and beautiful is her top priority. Hence, whenever I go out, I often carry a black leather backpack which contains a comb, a pack of tissues, a bottle of water and a jacket that would protect me from the severe sunlight of the sun during a day.
Neat [a] A neat person likes to keep themselves, their house and their possessions tidy and in good order
Priority [n] something that is very important and must be dealt with before other things
Contain [v] to have something inside or include something as a part
Tissue [n] soft paper which is used for cleaning, especially your nose, and is thrown away after use, or a small rectangular piece of this
Severe [a] causing very great pain, difficulty, worry, damage, etc; very serious
Did you ever forget to bring things?
I’m kind of absent-minded so I sometimes forget to bring the keys. I tend to toss keys everywhere so I have lost them several times.
Absent-minded (adj) forgetful
Will you bring different things in the daytime or at night?
I would say that most of the time when I go out during the daytime or night, I always bring along a purse which contains my credit and debit cards, small money, and driving license. However, I will bring some make-up and skin-care products like sunscreen in my vintage bag when I go out in the daylight hours.
Bring along (phrasal verb) to bring someone or something while going somewhere
Skin-care (phrase) things that you do and use to keep your skin healthy and attractive
How would you remind yourself of something you need to bring?
Well, I have never ever thought about it. Such an interesting question, though. I think that I can refresh my memory by taking note of every single thing I should bring along during the day shortly after I get up. This is because in the morning, I can recharge enough energy after a healthy sleep, thereby being able to avoid forgetting things to carry along.
Never ever (expression) an emphatic way of saying never
Take note of (phrase) to give attention to something
Refresh my memory (phrase) to help you to remember something
When you go to different places, do you carry different kinds of things?
Well, I’m a kind of person who prefers the same things all the time, so it’s not very easy for me to change my stuff. Whenever I go out, I hardly carry a lot of things. Hence, when I arrive at different places, I still bring my favorite backpack with the same personal objects, such as: a pack of tissues, a bottle of water and a jacket.
Stuff [n] used to refer to a substance or a group of things or ideas, etc., often with a description of their general type or quality or saying who they belong to, without saying exactly what they are
Hardly [adv] only just; almost not
Personal object [phrase] things that belong to someone
