IELTS 2017 Speaking Questions # History
History! Well, the one subject most of the kids have been frightened off! The dates and the baffling names of the kings! Who can, after all, remember all of that. This time we are looking at the recently asked questions in the IELTS speaking test on history.
- Which historical person do you admire?
History has never been able to make me stick to it. But, the one person who made an impact on me was Mahatma Gandhi. It was a few years back when I read his autobiography, I came to know the person more than his name. The fact that I really liked about him was that he stuck with his principles in thick and thin. Surely he was not born the Mahatma that people know him, but he definitely changed himself and learned things like no one else. It amazes me even today how his truth and non-violence proved to be the best asset that helped India and South Africa gained independence.
- Are you interested in knowing about the history?
Not particularly history but yes I have a keen desire to know about the culture of our country. In my opinion, with the globalization happening all across the world, the existing cultures are fading away. Religions are losing their importance and we are shifting towards a culture where people don’t have any grounds to live. Before that happens, I want to know about the culture of India, its history what made India what it is today.
- Have you ever seen a historical movie?
- Have you even been to a historical place?
