IELTS Speaking Part 3

  1. Do you think people prefer indoor or outdoor activities?

Well, I guess it depends on the age. The youngsters are likely to flock to fitness centres where supplied with cutting-edge facilities. It’s easy to track their workout and there are trainers helping them with exercises. On the other hand, outdoor activities are much more favorable to the elderly.They  can do exercise anytime at the park without any charge. Outdoor activities allow old people to be closer to nature so they will work out harder and be as fit as a fiddle

  • cutting-edge facilities
  • track sb’s workout
  • closer to nature
  • be as fit as a fiddle: strong
  1. Nowadays, the youngsters tend to take part in risky sports. What do you think about this?

I personally believe that dangerous sports have both pros and cons. The thrilling of the sports stimulates youngsters to (1) step out of their comfort zone and challenge themshelves. Besides, fortune favours the brave  so that’s why at boxing matches, the winners receive  lots of money .(2)Adventurers develop self-confidence  and become more mature than their(3) fellows. However, (4)everything comes with price tag so (5)the juniors face many(6) life-threatening consequences like injury or even death.

  • fortune favours the brave
  • Adventurer
  • Fellow
  • everything comes with price tag
  • the junior
  • life-threatening
  • follow strict safety rules
  • defend
  1. Men are likely to join in risky sports than women. Why do you think this happen?

In my opinion, different gender have different interest. Women tend to take part in some gentle physical activities like doing yoga. On the other hand, men love living on the edge and pushing their limit with boxing, rock climbing. While men are born with adventurous spirit and carefree, women are likely to be prudent and wary. It takes guts to join risky sports so it’s suitable for men as they have passion to overcome natural barriers. 

  • gentle physical activities
  • live on the edge
  • push sb’s limit
  • prudent and wary
