Do you work or study?
What do you do?

Do you like animals?

Yes, of course! I was raised by animal lovers, so I have definitely inherited that trait. I believe that all living things are connected, so we should respect and love animals. I think it’s incredible that pets like dogs for example are incredibly loyal and never fail to be excited and wag (move back and forth) their tails when you come home even if you’ve only been gone for 30 minutes.

What is your favorite animal?

Ever since I was a child, whales have always fascinated me. I think they are absolutely majestic (amazing, beautiful) creatures. I know that they are intelligent creatures that speak their own languages and are very family-oriented which makes me love and respect them. Furthermore, I think especially orcas are just gorgeous with their smooth, black bodies and white circles around their eyes. I’ve always dreamt of going whale- watching!

Did you have any pets when you were a child?

Since my mother was an animal lover, our house was full of pets! I used to have geckos (a type of lizard), hermit crabs, 2 cats, and 2 dogs. The most special animal I ever had was my cat named Blackie. I still remember his plump (fat), round body and his short little legs. Actually, he acted more like a dog than a cat. He was amazingly affectionate and loving.

Do many people in your country keep a pet at home?

Having pets is definitely a trend nowadays. Although cats and dogs have always been popular, people are now expanding their horizons. For example, mini pigs are becoming more common in homes. It’s said that they act like dogs. Apart from this, more exotic (not average; from a different area of the world) creatures are ending up as pets, such as boas, squirrels, chinchillas, tarantulas, etc. In my opinion, I think these animals belong (should be) outdoors!

Is there anything being polluted in your hometown?

Absolutely. As the industry and economy are on the rise (increasing), more and more factories are showing up, causing air pollution. Moreover, as people’s salaries have increased, more people can afford their own personal vehicles, which worsens this problem. Furthermore, there is waste dumped (thrown into) in the bodies of water, causing water pollution. Lastly, as there are many new construction projects and traffic jams, noise pollution is also on the rise.

What are the common types of pollutions in the countryside?

As many of the factories are built in rural areas, they are a cause of air pollution in the countryside. Moreover, the use of pesticides (chemicals to keep bugs and animals away from plants) and chemical fertilizers (chemicals added to make soil stronger) in farming does not help this problem. Furthermore, some people dispose of their personal waste into bodies of water, causing water pollution.

Have you ever done anything to help the environment?

I could definitely do more! However, I think that small actions do count.  I always carry my trash home with me to throw away if there isn’t a public garbage bin available. I would feel so guilty blatantly littering! Moreover, I choose to ride my bicycle or walk when transportation isn’t needed. Lastly, I opt (choose) to not get a plastic bag when they are unnecessary in stores.

Part 2

Describe an old person who is interesting

You should say :

  • who this person is
  • how you know this person
  • what you do with this person
  • and why you think this person is interesting

Band 9 Sample Answer

I would like to talk about my grandfather. I’ve always looked up to him (respected), as he has traveled the entire world on a low budget. Actually, as I’m now an avid (regular) traveler too, I feel that he planted some seeds in my head about this, since the rest of my family isn’t very fond of (like) travel.

To give you some more background, my grandfather and I have always had a close relationship. He always used to go out of his way (inconvenience himself to help me) to come visit me when I was a child. I remember he used to come pick me up from school pretty often as well. As I would sit in the backseat, he would tell me stories about his life and travels. Moreover, he was a history major, so he would always fill me in (tell me about) with facts about the world. If it weren’t for him, I would have never known about the history of these countries at such a young age. Although I don’t see him as often anymore, we always like to exchange travel photography, stories, and discuss history with one another.

I find him really interesting because he has traveled to 111 countries and counting at 81 years old. Furthermore, he has traveled to places that aren’t the typical tourist destinations, which shows how adventurous he is. Even though his body is aging, his mind is still sharp and full of knowledge about many worldly topics. Furthermore, he has a unique sense of humor which makes time with him enjoyable. All in all, there aren’t many people like my grandfather so I treasure (value) him.

Part 3
