IELTS Speaking Question # Animals

No matter how many times, we humans proclaim this Earth to be ours, it truly is not completely ours. There are so many more species that we share our resources with. There are birds, animals, nature and so much more. Today, let us have a look at some of the questions related to animals.

Do you like animals?

I would say I don’t hate them. I am not very much of an animal lover but I like them if they exist and I am able to see them. But, owning an animal might be something I won’t prefer.

What’s your favorite animal? Why?

I love cows a lot. I think they bring in lot of peace and care in a house. You see them, they rarely make any noise and still for some reasons when I look into their eyes, it feels very peaceful and lovely.

Are people in your country fond of animals?

Yes, they are. People in my country love animals. You could find a dog or a cow being owned by a family. And it is not for any monetary reasons but because they like being around them and caring for them. Animals do bring a certain extent of happiness and togetherness in a family. 

What kinds of animals as a pet do the people have in your country?

As a pet, most of the people have dogs in their house. Dogs are preferred over other animals because firstly they are very friendly and loyal to their owner. Also, they help in guarding the house against all the possible odds.


Compared with the past, have there been any changes concerning pets in your country/hometown?

I think yes, there have been many observable changes in our country since past few decades. With the coming of globalization and people going for modernization, there has been a steep decline in people owning cows. Earlier one could see most of the houses having a cow, because first it is treated as God in our country and then there are some monetary benefits associated with cows. One can sell its milk and other milk products.

Do you think cities are suitable places for keeping a pet?

A pet requires 24/7 care and if in a city one can provide that care, there should not be any issue in keeping a pet. I think with houses in cities so close to each other keeping pets like cows or other big ones is not possible. But, for the ones smaller in size like dog, cat or fishes, it is completely feasible and one should definitely go for them. But, yes if one has a very strict working lifestyle, keeping a pet will only be disastrous for the pet.

Do children like animals?

It all depends, I assume. There are some who love animals and then there are even those who are scared of them and not like them. Also, there are some who like to irritate animals just for the sake of fun.

What kind of animals do you think children like?

I think for most part, children love dogs and cats. Because these are the animals children can have lot of fun with. They can play and roam about with them.

What was your favourite animal when you were a child?

I was not a very particular animal lover as a child. I used to get irritated when people annoyed or irritated animals, but going out and playing with them was not my idea of having fun.

Did you have any pets when you were a child?

Yes, my father got a dog for us as we were child. But, I remember he was so aggressive that we rarely played with it. He used to kept only for guarding the house. However, later on when he started recognizing us he allowed us to come near him. I remember, my brother actually bonded a lot with him and so when he died it was a true shock for my brother.

What do you think are the benefits of a child having a pet?

I think a child learns a lot from a pet, especially unconditional love and that is really important. In times when people just do things for the benefit of doing it, a pet teaches you that apart from the money and the fame and the success there are so many other things which are important in life.

If you have children in the future, will you allow them to raise a pet?

Definitely yes. I think having a pet in the house is very important because it allows the kids to learn about love, patience, respect and so much more. It brings happiness and togetherness and tells you that no matter if the other person is more or less powerful you should stand for the right.

IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # Favorite Website


Describe a website you often browse.


You should say:

  • what is it
  • how long have you been using it
  • give details about the website

Why do you love the website?

Sample Answer

I have been using internet for now about 6 years, out of which I think 3 years I have used it extensively, visiting lot of websites and doing research and lots of fun work. There have been many sites which I love to visit, but I think the one that I go back to when I am not able to find anything else, is I believe it is one of the most amazing sites to be made in the history, because there are so many opportunities over there. You can learn lot of things from the website and then you can earn lot of money from it.

I have been using since past four years, I believe. With so many videos about events being uploaded onto it, it becomes very exciting to use it. So, there is this video about Steve jobs and you can hear him. His Stanford speech, his interview about Macintosh and his opinion about how life is lived. It is exciting because it seems as if you are actually interacting with the other person. And then there are video lectures by some great personalities. You get to learn and the best part is that it is for free. You learn because you want to and you enjoy it. I think the freedom that youtube gives is completely exciting.

Even more, people can now upload their videos and if they are able to bring in lot of viewers, google pays them and someone who has talent, it is such a great opportunity. You get to be your own boss and be creative.

favorite website was founded by Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim and the domain was activated on February 14,2005. The idea behind the founders was to be able to upload videos and share it with their friends. What was thought to be just a website where people could simply share their videos, turned out to be a great startup. It was in around 2006 that google acquired the website and since then it has been merged together with lots of google products like google+.

I think what makes me and so many people fall in love with the website is surely the freedom that it gives. You get to learn things and implement them and then earn lot of money out of it.

How long have you been using Internet?

I started using internet when I stepped into the college, but I remember, it was two years from then that I actually started using internet for lot of things. So, I would just go out and listen to lot of those videos and read the Wikipedia pages. For the initial two years, I used internet only for facebook and when I had to make presentations, but later in college I came to know about the importance it plays in our lives and have been using it extensively since then.

How has internet changed your lifestyle?

I would say it has made me more enlightened. So, earlier I was limited to the resources that I had, so the teachers and the people I used to meet in daily life. But now, it is more like, the approach from just adjusting with the average has changed to going for excellent and becoming excellent. There are no boundations anymore.

What do you think could be the possible uses of internet in the future?

My personal opinion is that our lives will revolve around internet in the future and that is for sure. So, we will be able to see automatic cars that work entirely on internet. It might be possible to figure out the emotions of the other person, just by scanning their face to the scanner and internet will find out the results. So, may be people will get to know what the other person is feeling. It might even be possible that we are able to figure out what is necessary to buy in a particular month, and may be internet will help us in finding out a good budget.

  • why do you want to meet him/ her
  • why he/she is famous

and explain what would you do if you meet him/ her.

Sample Answer One

There are so many people that I love and adore but the one person I would love to meet some day is Priyanka Chopra. She is the most successful Bollywood actress of our times, having won Miss world she entered into the Bollywood and has swept us all with her amazing acting. Then, she moved onto singing songs and has some great singles like In my city, I can’t make you fall in love with me. From there, she has even acted in TV seasons in Hollywood as the lead.

The reason I want to meet her is because I believe she is that one lady that is a walking promoter of girl power. She has taught so many girls, in so many ways, that if one is ready to work hard on their dreams the world is all theirs and that there is nothing in this world that is unachievable and one should never stop. Having achieved one thing does not mean it is the end of your story. From every achievement or failure begins a new path, the one that will take you to new areas.

Priyanka Chopra truly lives in the heart of many of our country men and so many of women get inspired from her. Not only is she amazing at her work, she has also been associated with lot of philanthropy work that helps people all around the world in education and help provide  better living facilities.

The reason I want to meet her is because I want to know her. What was that one defining moment when she realized that this is something that she will do. I want to meet her and interview her in sometime, to know what goes inside the head of the most successful person I have ever come across.

famous people

Sample Answer Two

We all idolize lot of different people and the one person that I truly admire is Mahendra Singh Dhoni. He is the captain of our Indian cricket team and has led us in some of the most toughest situations and made us victorious. It was under his captainship that India won its first T20 world cup and the world cup in 2011. He is often regarded as the captain cool because of his unwavering behavior in spite of any loss or victory.

The reason I want to meet him is because he is the true representation of a common man with so uncommon dreams. It was his journey that is so inspiring. From having faced issues that we all face, parental pressure, peer pressure, job insecurity, finding the right path and then landing into something that is true to his heart.

He has been an inspiration to many people and even after having achieved so much it is humble nature that charms everyone. The fact that he is close to his family and that he respects his country the most.

He is one of the most famous cricket captains the history of our cricket has seen. Not only because of the way he lead the team and made it victorious, but because of how he changed the environment of the dressing rooms in the cricket grounds. How he taught people to work together and in many ways the country that no matter how successful you become in your life, what is most important is that you love and respect the right people in your life. That you handle criticism and flattery in the same way and do what is important for you and your country.
