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.


IELTS Speaking Latest Questions # Shopping

The third section of IELTS speaking i.e. the discussion section is where you will be asked more general questions. The answers to these questions need to be complete and not simply one or a two liner. This time we are looking at some questions that were recently asked in IELTS speaking third section related to shopping.

Do you believe shopping is more popular than it was in the past?

With globalisation and factors like advertisement and media improvement, definitely yes, shopping has become more popular than it ever was!! But, I think the due credit does goes to the shopping malls and the fancy ads or the display of lives of public figures. People want to look or behave a certain way and shopping surely helps. With the coming of credit cards, it has become so much more easier for people to buy things that they want, no matter they can afford it or not.

Do you think shopping affects our society positively or negatively?

Anything done under limits is always good. So, shopping surely is a positive thing when it is done in limits. It only worsens when people start doing it for show off or to become someone like. So, a person who is shopping for some change of clothes or to buy things required, is doing well for the mental health of himself or herself. However, someone doing excessively merely to show off is affecting the society because others follow soon.

How does advertisement affect our shopping trends?

Advertisement have a very major impact on our shopping trends. With people leading a busy life, most people take decisions very fast. So, if there are ten companies trying to sell a particular product, the one with the best ad is surely going to take away the maximum customers. The bigger impact is, ads often elude people in buying things they might not necessarily need. So, for example, a person with mattress may go and buy a new one because there seem to be more benefits in the new one.

What kind of shops do teenagers like in your country?

We are living in a world where people are so different and that shows off right from the teenage years. So, there are some teenagers in our country that love to shop for clothes or the new video games. But, then there are even some, who love books and you would find them grounded in book shops. Overall, most teenagers in our country and mugged up in books with little time left for other activities.
