IELTS Speaking exam in Peru
Speaking Part 1
1What is your full name?
My name is “Naleen Dey”
2Can I see your ID?
Sure, you can
3Where are you from?
I’m from the dream city Mumbai also known as the financial capital of India. Mumbai was formerly called Bombay and is also the capital of the state Maharashtra which is also the biggest metropolis of this state
4Where do you live now?
Currently I’m living in the city named Kolkata which is considered one of the largest city and also is among the top metro cities in India and is capital for West Bengal. The city has earned the nickname ‘city of joy’ because of its soulful culture and heritage
5How long have you been living there?
I was born and raised in Cusco. I’ve lived there for my entire life, except for when I went to Lima, the capital city, to study my Bachelor’s Degree. After that, I needed to escape the hustle and bustle (noise from a big city) and come back to my lovely town.
6What do you like (most) about your hometown?
I love that it’s a mix between the ancient and modern world. Furthermore, I like the mix of the indigenous (native people) and Spanish influence. Sometimes it feels like I’m walking in the shoes of the Incas. Furthermore, there is definitely a warm, friendly feel to the town which makes it a pleasant place to live.
7Would you like to live there in the future?
Although my city is magical, I would consider moving somewhere else in the world. I think sometimes people become too accustomed to (used to) their daily routine. So, perhaps when and if I have a family, I would consider moving to another country in South America or to Spain. It would be our adventure!
8Do you have patience?
Not at all! I’m quite an impatient person. I often feel on edge (stressed), especially when I’m behind the wheel or waiting in line. Moreover, I like immediate gratification, so I tend to lose my patience when I cannot obtain this. This is one my biggest downfalls (bad personality traits).
9Do most people in your country have patience?
Not really. Since I come from a country of people who are used to having all conveniences at their fingertips (something easily accessible), they often become impatient when this doesn’t happen. Furthermore, people spend a lot of time commuting (traveling from home to work) to their offices in the mornings, which tends to leave them feeling antsy (anxious) as well as angry at other drivers.
10Have you ever lost patience?
Who hasn’t? There have been several instances. I once became quite impatient while I was waiting in a convenience store, not to mention with people cutting the line repeatedly, and I just left my items there idly (not doing anything) and stormed out (left angrily) of the store.
11When do you need patience the most?
That’s a difficult question. I think having patience in general is quite a virtue (a good trait). I think it’s good to have it with your life in general. When you have this, I imagine your life goes more at ease from step to step. Moreover, I think it’s important to have it with your children so that they aren’t raised in an angry environment, and furthermore so they can develop it later on in life.

12Do you drive often?
Luckily not, as I despise driving. I usually take Ubers around the city, cycle, or walk when possible. I try to avoid driving at all costs (avoid no matter what), considering the traffic in my city is incredibly chaotic. Furthermore, there is a huge air pollution problem in my city, so I try to take this step to be more green (environmentally friendly).
13Do you want your children to drive in future?
Out of necessity, yes. I would like for them to go through the process of getting their driver’s license just in case. For example, it would be helpful if their friend who drove them to a place gets too drunk to drive them home, etc. However, I would urge (push) them to drive as little as possible, since it’s quite risky and not environmentally friendly.
14Do you have a driver’s license?
Yes, I do. I’ve had one for 10 years now. I still remember initially failing the test my first two tries, then eventually nailing it (doing it perfectly). Although I don’t use it very often, as I much prefer cycling or walking when possible, it’s still a benefit to have it.
15At what age are people allowed to drive a car in your country?
Since I’m from a country that was made for cars with hardly any public transportation available, it’s almost necessary to have a car unless you live in a big city. With this said, we allow teenagers to get their license when they’re 16. Although it seems really young, I think it’s necessary to make life more convenient!
Speaking Part 2
Describe a time when someone didn’t tell you the whole truth about something/describe a time when someone did not tell you the complete truth
You should say
- when this happened
- what the situation was
- who you were with
- and why the person didn’t tell the whole truth
I’m going to tell you about a time I was really upset about someone lying to me. As I whole-heartedly value the truth, I feel very disappointed when I find out that someone has lied to me, especially when it’s someone close to me. So, I’ll share this situation with you.
I had just started dating a new guy and felt that I really liked him. I was 24 at the time, and he had said that he was 30. He appeared to be a bit older than that, so I tried to clarify his age twice, which he insisted was exactly 30. So, I decided to believe him. I was chatting with his best friend one day who was 32, and he made a comment saying that he was younger than Manny, which I was confused about at first. Later that day, I called Manny out (confronted) about that over text, in which after several lies finally confessed that he was actually 33 years old. I knew it wasn’t the most terrible lie someone could tell, but I felt that my trust in him was tested. I thought, “if someone lies about simple personal details, what else do they lie about?”
He never stated his intentions about his lie, but I would imagine that maybe he felt he was too old for me. I guess that he was afraid to lose me if I knew he was 33, which wasn’t a problem for me. Furthermore, maybe he was struggling with accepting his age himself, so he wanted to keep believing that he was 30. I’m sure it was related to his insecurities one way or another. Anyway, whatever his reasons were, I decided to give him another chance although I wasn’t happy that he was dishonest.

We often punish children telling lies. But if we want to teach them we should set an example. We should explain the advantages of speaking the truth . Try to remunerate the honesty of the child with loads of hugs and praises which will build confidence to speak truth rather than lies and also reinforce the positive behaviour .
