IELTS Speaking Test in Iran – June 2018 & Model Answers

Speaking Part 1

1 What is your full name?

Hello. My name is Taniya sen.

2 What should I call you?

You can me taniya.

3 Can I see your ID?

Yes. Here’s my ID

4 Where are you from?

I am from delhi, the capital of India. It is one of the most advanced states of India. Most of Indian history evolved around this place.

5 Do you like music?

So far I haven’t met anyone who dislikes listening to music. However, when the workload is too heavy that requires me to stay highly focused, music is a huge distraction. Unlike many people who like listening to instrumental music because it highly benefits for their concentration and study, in my case the music makes me feel instantly sleepy.

6 What kind of music do you like?

My music taste varies widely from West to East and from the 90s to modern EDM. But if Korean pop is considered as a kind of music, then yeah, that’s my favorite of all time. More than half of my playlists are Korean songs and I always keep myself updated with the news related to Korean showbiz.

7 Were you listening to music when you were younger?

Since my parents are music-lovers and they also have very good tastes, I was exposed to the old kinds of music at a very young age. Sometimes my mom sang me to sleep with her lullabies. Although I can’t get the message at that time, my mom said that I buoyed up when listening to them.

8 How often do you use your dictionary?

As an English learner, I use dictionaries to look up new words regularly. Without them, it would be really hard for me to write a complete IELTS essay or understand an English article.

9Do you like paper dictionary or electronic dictionary?

E-dictionary, absolutely. It’s very convenient and portable. I can use my smartphone and look up new words whenever and wherever I want without having to carry a heavy book with me all the time.

10 What kinds of dictionaries have you used before?

I’ve used quite a lot of dictionaries; but 3 dictionaries that I make use of the most are Cambridge Dictionary, Collocation dictionary, and Thesaurus dictionary. All of them are absolutely necessary for any English learner, I believe.

Speaking Part 2

Describe your favourite season

You should say

• What the weather is like
• Why you like this season
• What activities you usually do during this season
• How different kinds of weather in this season affect people

Sample Answer

Today, I am going to tell you about my favourite season. Honestly, I love all the seasons but I think my favourite is spring. Usually, it starts at the end of December in our country and lasts till the middle of March.

The weather in my country is the best during spring because you will not suffer from the excessive heat of summer or the freezing wind of winter. The temperature is tolerable both day and night. One of the best things about spring is that, during this poetic season, nature displays itself in beautiful green and flowers are noticed everywhere. Fruit trees are in full blossom, and colourful flowers such as daffodils and marigolds bloom in parks and gardens. The sounds of spring are wonderful too. A typical spring day will begin when some birds start their morning chorus as they look for a mate. We also celebrate New Year, one of the most anticipated holidays by people. This is an occasion for pilgrimages, family reunions and many festivals. Parties full of palatable traditional dishes are the main theme for the whole holiday of New Year Eve.

I am of the opinion that different kinds of weather can affect people’s health. Even among those in the prime of health, an excessively hot or cold day can lead to illness or injury, let alone the elderly, who can be more susceptible to extreme weather conditions. Weather can also make a huge impact on people’s lives. Obviously, the weather dictates what you are going to wear for the day, often depending on the time of year. Also, winter snow storms in Western countries can cancel school or make your morning commute a hassle.

Speaking Part 3

1 Do you think people should go on holidays? Is it beneficial?

I think it’s very much important for people to go on holidays. It’s very important for people to take some time off from their daily schedule and spend quality time with their loved ones.

2 Do you think companies would benefit if the employees were to take long holidays?
