IELTS Speaking Sample Questions # Walking

No person in this world can every be too busy to miss a physical exercise. With more and more people getting busier these days, the importance of body in some ways get over looked. However, there have been many initiatives being made to ensure that people do a certain kind of exercise to maintain a healthy life. This time let us have a look at some of the questions related to walking that can be asked in IELTS speaking section.

Do you like to walk?

Yes, I do prefer having long walks with my friends and even sometimes alone, when I need to clear my thoughts. I think walking in so many sense help you to bond with the other person. Because, it is that time when we are slow and really talking to the other person. There is no rush, no deadline to meet, nothing on mind apart from what is coming out from heart. And, then times when I walk alone, it does help me get clarity on life.

Would you say your city is a good place for walking?

I live in an eastern state of India, in Bhubaneswar and surely it is a good place to walk. With not much hustle and bustle of big city, you can actually just go out without any thoughts on getting hit by a car and have the street food.

Do people in your country walk a lot?

Most of the people in my country do go out for an evening walk. With IT becoming such a major market and the youth shifting towards it, not much of youth goes out for walk, but I think they tend to do some other form of exercise for that matter. But, apart from them, you can find women and children, going out for walk to catch up with their friends.

Do you think walking is important?

Definitely yes. Walking is surely an important part of our lives because it helps us in so many ways. You not only get positive results in terms of physical health but it helps improve your mental health, hence giving you the entire advantage. Also, with walking people become much more aware of the surroundings they live in, which is surely an important thing.

Do you think walking in the countryside is better than walking in the city?

Surely yes. On the countryside, you are more likely to find greenery, free roads, more parks, but with cities, there are certain issues. Like, most of them have got big building so while walking there is not much that you can capture about nature. Also, with cities, there are issues like pollution, which do affect us in many ways.

What could be done to improve the experience of walking in cities?

I think having bigger and better parks can be one thing. So, a park where you can find lot of trees and garden and may be a lake could give the feel of the country side. It is not necessary that these parks are built in every locality but may be more frequently. So, that people can come here and relax and feel good about life

Do you like walking on your own or with others?

It depends. So, if I am really messed up with my life and want some clarity, I prefer walking alone. But, in times when I am tired and feel emaciated, I prefer going out on a walk with my friends. It helps me to relax a bit and then carry on with life. So, for me both go fine, my mental state is what makes the difference.

Cue Card – Speaking part-2

IMPORTANCE OF EXERCISE

  • What kind of exercise do you do?
  • When do you exercise?
  • How do you feel after exercise?
ANSWER

I believe that no one in this world can deny the importance of exercise, whether it is yoga or cycling or jogging. I think that people who do daily exercise tend to live a healthier life.

Exercising is very important for me. I make it a point that I am able to do it on regular basis. I usually do cycling in the morning for an hour, although I sometimes even prefer jogging. There are even days when it is raining and in those days I mostly do yoga. The point is I make sure that I am doing some or the other form of exercise daily in the morning.

Sometimes it become quite tough for me to do exercise in the morning. In those days, I usually take a stroll in the evening in a nearby park.

Exercising always helps to begin the day on a fresh note. I feel as if the entire day gets perfectly scheduled if I exercise. I am a writer and for most of the times I am sitting and typing. Exercising helps me to give my body the required time and also often I get great ideas during exercise. It seems as if it just provides me the right adrenaline rush. And I think that every individual must exercise daily.

IELTS Speaking Sample Questions # Patience

Patience is the key to success. There are people who believe that waiting for the right thing to happen is the best thing to do, when you don’t want to lose everything. While there are even some who believe that it is the desperation to do things that help people to be successful in life. This time we are looking at some questions related to patience that can be asked in the IELTS speaking section.

What do you think patience is?

Patience, I think is a quality of an individual who knows the work he or she does and also is aware of their own potential. A person who does not possess either of these things, can get frustrated by not getting any results. For example, a business man may know rightly when the next opportunity will strike or even, a right analysis of the opportunity in hand.

Do you think patience is important?

I think definitely yes. Patience according to me is someone’s stubbornness of not falling down or losing hope. It is not about waiting for something to happen, but rather of not allowing the unnecessary to take a toll of life. So yes, definitely it is important.

Do you think patience is important part of being polite?

In my opinion, politeness is not about the tone of your speech but also what you say. So, if I very calmly ask you to get lost, it is still rude. But, then too an extent, yes patience does help in being polite. So, a person who is patient enough to listen to the other person, is more likely to have a better understanding of the others opinion.

Would you say you are a patient person?

Well, I am a patient person in parts. So, there are some things I can wait for but then there are things that just make me go mad. And for them, I am not at all patient. Overall, I think I am not a very patient person, but I am trying to be one.

Have you ever lost your patience?

Well, there have been times I do lose my patience, but it is after a certain threshold. So, recently I lost my patience at my house. I was working on the staircase late night and when I came down to have a sleep my flatmates had already shut the door. I did understood their point of view but the next morning when I tried to knock again, no one opened. That moment I did lose my patience because I had not slept the entire night and was dying to sleep. So,I banged the door several times.

What do you become impatient about?

Mostly, I do get impatient when I am doing some work that I don’t like much but because of it I am not able to do things that I love. So, for example, there are days when I get stuck with my 9 to 5 job but then I don’t get time to meet my friends or write for my blogs. These things make me very impatient.
