Recent IELTS Speaking Exam in Iran – May 2018 & Model Answers

Speaking Part 1

1 What is your full name?

My name is Raina Mitra.

2Can I see your ID?

Sure. Here is my ID.

3Where are you from?

I am from Bangalore, the most technically advanced state of India. I have been living here since i was two years old. I was born in Kolkata.

4Do you work or study?

I am a working woman. I work in this organization as a web developer. I have been working for a long time now.

Newspaper

5Do you often read newspapers?

Yes, I read the newspaper everyday to keep up to date with the latest news and see what the hottest topic of the day is. I’ve been in the habit of doing this for a long time.

6 Do you prefer to read local news or international news?

Well, I suppose that I prefer/have an inclination towards international news, especially news about relationships among countries around the world. This is probably because I really care about diplomatic issues and want to keep track of what’s happening outside my country.

7Does your family read newspapers?

Yes, my family usually have breakfast and read newspapers together. I really love to spend a quality time for those with whom I share my life and discuss about some current affairs in the newspapers. It also helps strengthen our family bond a lot, so I want the habit of reading newspaper with my family to go on for ages.

8Do you read any news online?

No. I usually read a hard copy of the newspaper,which is delivered to my home every morning. Sometimes when in a hurry, I choose to read it online.

9What section of the newspaper do you read first? Why?

I generally read the regional and the national news to see what is happening around the nation. Then I shift to the sports section for entertainment purposes.

Handwriting

10Do you usually write by hand?

Not really anymore. These days I find myself typing a lot on computers and texting on my phone, so I rarely use paper and a pen anymore. Having said that, I still have to jot down notes in class because laptops are not allowed. I think it’s a pain, really.

10Do you think handwriting will be replaced by computers?

Well, you know, in this day and age, modern technologies have largely marginalized handwriting, and you don’t see people writing by hand as much as they did in the past. However, I still think some things need to be handwritten. For example, you should always handwrite a wedding invitation to show respect to the guests.

11Do you like handwriting or typing?

Typing is faster and convenient than writing by hand. In this modern world, typing is more convenient and I personally prefer this.

12Did you write a lot when you were a child?

When I was a child, my parents used to make me write passages to check my handwriting or would dictate sentences so that I could learn to write fast.

Speaking Part 2

Describe an important lake/river/sea in your country

You should say

  • What is this place?
  • Where is this place?
  • Why you like this place
  • And explain what you would like to do there

Sample Answer

XYZ [your country] has several major rivers and hundreds of minor ones. The longest river in my country is BC which flows through more than five states in the northern part of the country.

This river is the lifeline of millions of citizens of my country. Not only does it supports farmers through irrigation canals and aquaculture, but also helps smooth business operations by acting as a navigation system. Moreover, it is a sacred river of the Hindus and they perform various rituals on the banks of the river. Thus, the river has both economic and cultural significance.

When I was a little kid, I always dreamed of visiting it. Yet, not until I turned 22 years old did I have chance to see it. Immediately, I was overwhelmingly impressed by its breathtaking beauty and historical value. And I have to say that it is so far the best trip I have ever had in my entire life, and I hope can visit the river again soon.

Vocabulary for Cue Card

  • Minor: secondary one
    Eg: She is overreacting for  minor  issues
  • Major: main specialisation 
    Eg: Though he opted Science, his major for physics.
  • Irrigation: artificial process of applying controlled amounts of water to land to assist in production of crops
    Eg: The government authorized an irrigation project
  • Aquaculture: the rearing of aquatic animals or the cultivation of aquatic plants for food.
    Eg: Aquaculture is a very popular technique in the foreign countries.
  • overwhelmingly: very great in amount.
    Eg: the idea she gave for the project is overwhelming

Speaking Part 3

1What are the threats of the ocean?

The oceans being so beautiful and appealing can be a threat to human kind. The most important is the tsunami. The tectonic plate movements under the sea can cause this disaster and wash away everything in its grasp. But interestingly in recent times , we are more of a threat to them than they ever were.

2What water sports and activities do people in your country usually do?

The most common activities people in my country do is swimming and sailing. They also play several other water games like  water polo, skiing, Scuba diving, rafting, snorkeling etc.

3Should water sports be a subject in schools?

This is a very controversial topic. But I personally feel it is important to keep a water sports subject to get oneself accustomed with the norms of the sea and ocean.

Vocabulary for Speaking Part  3

  • tectonic movement: movements of plate movements located below the earth’s surface
    Eg: Tectonic movements  causes earthquakes
  • Controversial: arguable topic
    Eg: The topic of the debate was very controversial.
  • Accustomed: getting used to
    Eg: she got well accustomed with rules of her new school
