There is nothing better than an amazing desert after that lovely dinner you had. Sweets do form a very important part of our lives and no matter whether we are crazy about them or not, we do like to have a small amount of it either ways.

But, I think out of sweets and chocolates, I will prefer, chocolates. The only reason being the fact that they are so easy to carry and so easily available. I never have to wait to get rid of the chocolate craving. Even more, when I do burst out, it is the chocolate that helps me.

Q2: What’s your favourite flavour of ice cream?

I love orange flavor in ice creams,  especially the ones that you can buy for 10 bucks. There is nothing better for me than having to sip the ice cream for every drop of that flavor and the tension of eating it before it melts. The fun that I do get when making those funny noises and teasing friends that makes eating the ice cream fun.

Well, I have had so many chocolates, i really don’t remember exactly when I had my first chocolate. But, once my brother got a Bournville and I was very young and he asked me to taste it. I think that was the first time I tasted a dark and expensive chocolate. Although, I did not liked it back then it is surely my favourite chocolate.

Q8: Have you ever given chocolate as a present to someone? Why?

Oh! I have given chocolate to so many people as present.

IELTS Speaking Sample Questions # Leisure Time

Work is surely worship but then there is so much more than work. Life is when you let your work take a chill pill and relax some time with people you love doing things that you enjoy doing. This time we are looking at some sample questions that can be asked in the IELTS speaking section Part I.

What do you do in your spare time?

I love reading and writing when I have some free time available. Apart from these, I also like playing badminton. So, whenever I do get time, I usually read, write or play badminton.

What do you do to relax yourself?

For relaxation, I prefer taking a short nap. It could be either for 20 minutes or may be an hour. But, nothing helps me relax better than some sleep.

What do you usually spend your weekends?

During the weekdays, most part of the evenings usually gets lost doing the office work. But, during weekends, I work on my blog for the entire day and so during evenings I usually spend some time with my friends, going on long walks together or have dinner at their place.

What do you usually do after work or classes?

There is nothing much that can be done after work because it really becomes quite tiring. So, most of the times I am either working on my blog or writing something or some drafts, here and there.

Do you prefer staying at home or going out during evenings?

I love taking long walks. So, if I am not busy at something during evenings, I usually take long walks with my friends or for that matter even alone at times.

Do you think modern lifestyles give enough time to people for leisure?

I think it depends on the kind of modern lifestyle an individual is leading. So, a person doing a corporate job might have less time to spare for leisure activity but probably a person who does freelancing will find more time to leisure. Not because a work is less time consuming but because the way things get done in each. Even more, I think it all depends on how the person sets priorities for themselves.

Do you think people today have more time to relax as compared to that in past?

I certainly believe that people are more busy when compared with their past counterparts. Earlier people lived a content life but with changing times people are less satisfied with what they have and are always on the look out of doing more. This has made lives much more hectic than ever.

What do you think is the importance of leisure time in life?

Leisure is the one thing that makes the life worth living. I surely believe that apart from the daily mundane activities a person should always try to do things that makes him or her happy. It could be either something that he or she likes doing or could even be some person one likes spending time with. It is only through this that a person is able to enjoy life.

Do you think old and young people spend their leisure time in the same way?

I believe it is not about young and old, it is more about individuals. I have seen old people party harder than some of the young chaps out there and then some young people reading better than the wiser older people. In my opinion, it is all about the individual choices that people make.

Do you like to travel in holidays?

Well, I love travelling not only because everyone else does but because for me travelling teaches so much more to me than anything else can ever do. Also, travelling allows me to explore myself and the world in ways that opens up my horizons, giving me a broader aspect of life.

If you had a child, what leisure places would you go with your child?

I think I would like to take my child to library and a field ( could be of any game) as part of leisure activity. Also, I would love to travel with my child because in my opinion, a child learns so much more from travelling, history and art than he or she can ever learn from any of the text books or any motivational videos.
