IELTS SPEAKING PART 1: Questions and Sample Answers Band 8+

Here are some ideas and suggested answers for IELTS Speaking Part 1. Let’s learn some new vocabularies on birthday and clothing topics.

BIRTHDAY

– Do you enjoy your birthday?

I used to love them a lot, but now that I’m getting older and older they aren’t as much fun as they used to be. It’s simply another day like any other day in the year.

– Do you usually celebrate your birthday?

Yes, I do. Although it is not very huge party but I make sure that there is a party and that I have all my near and dear ones surrounding me during my birthday.

I usually am not a very big birthday fan. I think there should not be any reason to celebrate life and oneself. I am one of those who would give myself or any one else gifts out of the box with no reasons and at any time of the year.

– Is it important to celebrate one’s birthday? Why?

Well, everyone, regardless their age, deserves to have a meaningful birthday celebration not only to mark another milestone of their life but to share wishes and happiness with their beloved ones. Even though some might claim that birthday doesn’t matter much and it only reminds them of how old they are, they still probably secretly enjoy the warmth and attention from others on their special day.

– How birthdays of children are celebrated in your country?

Children are likely to be the ones who adore birthdays the most since they can be spoilt with plethora of presents and wishes. There aren’t any essential differences in how people celebrate their children’s birthday among countries, I believe. Basically, we are all going to throw a party with birthday cake which could be varied in shapes and flavors and, most importantly, express our love and support for our kids on their every stage of life.

– Which birthdays are considered important in your country?

Generally speaking, in India, every stage of a human’s life is destined for some specific activities and purposes. Therefore, we consider all phases of life with equal significance. Yet, if I had to pick one, 18 would be my choice since it is a turning point which signals maturity, opening a new chapter in one’s journey.

– How is it celebrated?

People always have their own ways to celebrate and enjoy life and their birthday parties are no exceptions. We often come across Sweet 18 or Coming of Age ceremony, which are relatively the same as any birthday party except with bigger scale and higher bills.

CLOTHING

– Do you think wearing a hat on sunny days is important?

It is widely understood that radiation from the sun has extreme detrimental impacts on our health, especially our skin which can cause several skin problems ranging from sunburn to cancer. As a result, applying sunscreen or wearing a hat on sunny days to reduce sunlight exposure is crucial. This not only saves you from skin issues but helps to decelerate aging process in general.

– Did you wear a hat as a child? Why?

Unfortunately, I was kind of stubborn and disobedient when I was younger, therefore, despite my mother’s warnings, I rarely put on a hat or jacket to cover my skin when playing outside. You don’t usually pay much attention to your physical appearance when you’re a kid, don’t you? Or at least that was what I and most of my friends used to think. However, it’s not too late to start wearing a hat and protect your skin now.

– What is the importance of a hat?

Many has considered a hat a trivial piece of clothing for covering purpose only, yet, stylists and designers around the world have turned hats into not only useful but fashionable accessories to meet market’s demands as well. Beside their initial and major function as sunshades, hats are now playing big roles in complementing one’s outfit, making them ones of the most necessary items in every girl’s closet.
