Noise

5What natural sound(s) do you like (the most)? (Why?)

Hmm, that’s an interesting question. I’m quite a morning person, and furthermore, I find nothing more relaxing than the sound of birds chirping (the noise birds make). I find that sound to be so fresh, which helps me to start my day energetically. Even though I live in a big city now, it takes me back to my childhood in the countryside.

6What sounds do you dislike? (Why?)

My biggest pet peeve (something that annoys you) is the sound of honking. They drive me mad! I find this noise almost unbearable (impossible to put up with), mostly because it’s a loud, abrupt (unexpected) sound that instantly disturbs my peace. Furthermore, it’s usually the sound of a frustrated or angry driver, which makes it even more unpleasant.

7Do you mind the noises? (Do any noises bother you?)

As I’m quite a light sleeper (wake up quickly), I get irritated by the noises around me. I’d have to say the most aggravating (annoying) noise is the sound of a barking dog. It’s so shrill (something that gets in your head)! I find it very disturbing and almost impossible to focus on anything else. Moreover, it makes me sad to know that a dog is in such a state of distress that they must bark like that.

IELTS Actual Tests Questions (May - August 2021) with Answers

8What type of noise do you come across in your daily life?

Well, quite a cacophony (a mix of sounds)! It varies from the sound of screaming matches (fights) from the partners and families in my apartment, street sellers shouting out their product for all to hear, motorbikes speeding by, all the way to the sound of blaring horns. I would say that the sound that defines my city most would be the sound of horns. As it has major traffic issues and un-defined lanes on the roads, it is quite natural that the sound of horns would fill the streets.

Science

9Do you like science?

That’s an interesting question. Science was thrust on me as a mandatory subject, and it was never my favourite. I found the topics quite fascinating, especially biology and chemistry, but I was not able to understand easily. However, I always wished that I was better at science since it’s a life-oriented subject.

10What’s the most difficult part of studying science?

The mathematical aspect of it. Since I’ve never been good at Math, this is the area of Science that kept me down (prevented me from succeeding). For example, I got decent grades in Biology class, but Chemistry and Physics were a huge struggle for me due to the Mathematical nature of them.

11How has the science that you have studied helped you?

Although I’m not conscious of it, I will not deny that Science has been beneficial. I see how Biology, Life Science, Anatomy, Chemistry, and Ecology have helped me understand my body and the world around me better, including animals. Furthermore, Chemistry has helped me to understand the chemical make-up of the items around me and what causes explosive reactions. For example, I know I should not drop mentos in my Diet Coke!

Speaking Part 2

Describe a time you looked for information from the internet

You should say
  • When you did that
  • What did you search for
  • Why you looked for it on the internet

Sample Answer

I’m going to tell you about how I used the internet to look for information about social events online. I had just moved to Seoul and didn’t know a soul (didn’t know anyone), so I began searching on Facebook. I found an ex-pat page called “Expats in Seoul” which became one of my greatest resources for meeting locals and ex-pats in the city. I came to believe that social media can be a great blessing (something great)!

It’s been ten months in Seoul now, so I began this search during my first month here. I initially wanted to find a meditation group and a language exchange group, and I found it by scrolling up and down the feed. I also wrote a post on my own. Countless people informed me about events in the area. From the first month, I have been attending a meditation group every Thursday and have met several friends via the ex-pat meet up. Since then, I’ve expanded my horizons (opened up more opportunities for myself) and even began attending a Philosophy Forum on Wednesdays and have joined a yoga club, too!

I decided to opt for the internet to start building my social life because I didn’t see many other options, as I am a freelancer. With this said, I don’t have co-workers, and I’m a bit standoffish (shy; doesn’t approach people) when I go out to the bar. Although you must use your judgment when meeting people from the internet, I think it can be a great tool when you arrive in a new city, alone. I find it, quite an efficient way to put yourself out there (put effort into) to meet others. Although it can be a curse at times, I certainly feel thankful for it!

Vocabulary for Cue card

  • Didn’t know a soul: To not reveal some confidential information to a single person or more
      Eg:Sorry,I didn’t know a soul about this piece of news.
  • Blessing:  A prayer or asking for divine favor and protection
     Eg: It is indeed a blessing from God
  • Expanded my horizons: Pushed my limits a bit more
     Eg: Everyone should expand their horizon to gain insightful experiences.
  • Standoffish: Unfriendly 
     Eg: She seemed to be a bit standoffish with her sister-in-law
  • Put yourself out there: to make an effort to do something 
     Eg: Don’t put yourself out there. I have already gathered a bunch of information

Speaking Part 3

1Do you think online information is reliable enough?

There is a lot of information you can find on the internet, and all are reliable too.There are many websites where the articles are written by the doyens in the field. So they can be trusted. For example, Weight loss. There are a plethora of websites which offer tips by recommended doctors. Millions of people have benefited from those tips and techniques.

2Do you think there is too much information on the internet?

Yes , there is a lot of information provided on the internet and that could be very mystifying. It can overload you at times. It can be quite annoying when every web site shows different information for the same subject of matter.

3Is the information on TV useful?

Yes, mostly information provided on tv is useful . It does not give wrong or misleading information. Also it gives us exact facts and provides us with proper substantiation. Television is one of the most important inventions of the millenium. Without it, we would not be able to visualise important facts about the world. Also television is the bridge between the governing party and the normal public

Vocabulary for Speaking Part 3

  • Astonishing : Extremely surprising
    Eg: That was a astonishing achievement
  • Mystifying: Confusing
    Eg: Her attitude towards her parents is mystifying
  • Substantiation: Evidences
    Eg : Do you have any substantiation to show in regards to the allegations that have been put against you ??

FAQs

Can I improve my band score in the Speaking test by learning synonyms of various words?

Definitely, yes. But you should be careful that you use them in the right context. Out of two words having the same meaning, one word may fit into a sentence whereas the other may not.
Example: Start(informal) and Commence(formal)

Can you tell me words which can be used interchangeably?

Example : Goal/target/aim, huge/enormous.

How do I answer the question: “Is online information reliable”?

Sample answer:
The user is responsible for verifying the authenticity of the site. You cannot trust content on the internet blindly.

How do I answer the question: “Do you think there is too much information available online”?

Sample answer:
Yes. There is too much content available for every topic under the sun.

How do I answer the question: “What are some other ways of searching for information”?

Sample answer:
Newspapers, books and magazines are other good sources from which one can gather information.
