Describe a time that you got up early in the morning: IELTS Speaking Part 2 Sample Answer
Describe a time that you got up early in the morning
You should say
- when it happened
- why you got up early
- who you were with
- and explain how you felt about getting up early
The first thing I want to say is that I hardly ever wake up early, so when I do it is for something important.
So the most recent occasion when I had to be up early was last year when I took the IELTS test. It started at 8 in the morning so naturally I had to get up at 6. When I got out of the house it was still dark outside. It took me 20 minutes by motorbike to arrive at the hotel where the test was going to take place. Some other test takers had already come and were sitting inside the lounge, all looking quite drowsy and nervous.
I found myself a seat and started taking out a book to read. I normally find it useless to cram right before a test so I just do something to relax. At 8 everyone was called into a large meeting room where the organisers would have a short presentation on the test process. We were all required to leave our personal belongings outside the exam room.
Anyway, the test went well and I got the result I needed. I think I could’ve done better if I hadn’t been sleepy at the start of the test.
