IELTS Speaking about friend

IELTS Speaking about friend.


Speaking question 1: Describe a friend.

Answer A: In my time of teaching, I met some really lively colleagues, the most memorable being a girl named Shweta, who had newly joined. As far as I recall, we met at a formal meeting in the staff room which turned out to be the beginning of an everlasting friendship. She was an average looking girl with a true golden heart and a radiant personality. I found a helping and compassionate person in her who believed in honesty. She was not only a responsible human being, but a notable professional in the same way. I will always be thankful to her to bring out the best out of me.

Answer B: I can proudly say that the God has gifted me an unpretentious friend like Raghav, who is there for me throughout my thick and thin. He is the most helpful person I have ever known. There were many times when I felt that I was always being tagged by a person who was my biggest critic. But, he eventually made me a better person by telling me all my faults. Although, being in different cities we can’t spend much time together now, but it doesn’t limit our friendship. We certainly find occasions to be together and experience some moments worth living for.


Speaking question 2: How long have you known each other?

Answer A): We have known each other since childhood as we were in the same class till the time we completed our degrees.

Answer B): We have known each other for three years as we were working for the same organisation. We have spent a lot of quality time together.


Speaking question 3: What do you usually do together?

Answer: As both of us are fun loving people, so we love to go out to different places. Now, we are working and have families. But, we manage to spend time together when we see each other on weekends. We like to eat out, discuss various things related to each other’s life and play outdoor games. Sometimes, we plan to go out on a tour with our families. Meeting each other not only revives me but makes me glad as it allows us to share some old memories.


Speaking question 4: What do you like most about him/her?

Answer: Well, she is a bundle of joy and has many qualities which are exemplary. But, one quality which attracted me towards her magnetic personality is, her helping nature. She extends a helping hand to everyone who needs her. She is girl with a kind heart and a strong conscience. I have seen her supporting her family and found her with me whenever I needed her. I have learnt a lot from her.


Speaking question 5: How often do you see each other?

Answer: Actually, when we were working for the same organisation, we used to meet daily and spend quality time together. But, when I shifted to another city, our meetings became less frequent, but that didn’t affect the bond between us. We still feel close to each other and we communicate through social networking sites.

There is a big parking lot in the back.

In addition, it has a study table, a chair and a dressing mirror on one of its wall. I have put a comfortable full-sized bed and mattress in my room. Its interior reflects my hobbies. There is a beautiful garden in front of my room which soothes my eyes when I look at it from the window. All in all, I think that my room is the best room of my house.

When I am at home, I enjoy the delicious homemade food which my mother cooks, and if there is a cricket match on that day then it’s a golden opportunity to spend time with friends and family with heavy pizza orders. Sometimes, I help my mother in her household chores.
