SAMPLE ANSWER

Dear Pooja,

I hope you are in your best of health. Happiness was all over my face when your letter came last week where you mentioned about your prospective visit to Delhi. I already had made few plans for us together but recently I was informed of a 15 days corporate training program organized by my employer. Sadly enough, the dates clash with your visiting dates.

But, my house is open for you. I live in the same place as earlier and although I won’t be there, my friend can host you.  You can stay in my room and feel free to use the kitchen, bathroom, and other amenities. My friend has agreed to go shopping with you on Saturday and there will be no issues with the food.

It has been a long time since we met and it would have been amazing if things turned out our way. But, I would be coming to Bombay next month. Hope to meet you soon.

Yours lovingly,
Anuradha

IELTS Speaking Part I Sample Questions # Walk

Walking is one of the best ways to stay fit, especially for those who don’t find time for exercising. However, for some people, it is a part of their daily routine while others do it only if they have a spare time for it. Jogging and brisk walking are popularly followed by people interested in fitness. Moreover, walking is also one of the best stress busters as it helps in reducing anxiety and fatigue as well. This time we are looking at some of the questions related to walking that can be asked in IELTS Speaking.

Question 1: Do you like to walk?
Answer:  I like taking long walks with my friends and sometimes alone as well. Apart from the many health benefits that it has, walking helps me to relax and spend quality time with my people. Also, it saves fuel expenses.

Question 2: Do you like to walk on your own or with others?
Answer: I usually prefer walking alone as it allows me to manage my own pace. I find it as an excellent way of keeping my body fit and also reducing the mental stress. However, I do go for walks with my family members or friends sometimes, especially to spend quality time with them.

Question 3: Would you say that your city is a good place for walking?
Answer A: Yes certainly, my city has many well-maintained parks, public lawns and pedestrian paths which make it ideal for walking.

Answer B: Not really. I live in a metropolitan city so there are very few places to walk. Nearby parks are the most popular places for walking, exercising or practising yoga/meditation.

Question 3: Do people in your country walk a lot?
Answer: Well, people residing in cities really don’t walk too much as they usually travel long distances in routine. However, the ones living in countryside walk a lot within their vicinity. The city residents consider walking as a fitness medium and prefer early morning walks.

Question 4: Do you think walking is important?
Answer: Yes, I think walking is the best and the simplest way to stay fit in today’s busy life. People hardly have time to exercise and on top of that most of the jobs are limited to the desk. Hence regular walking is indeed very important.

Question 5: Do you think walking in the countryside is better than walking in the city?
Answer: Yes, walking in the countryside is definitely better than walking in the city. The greenery and fresh air that you can enjoy in the countryside is scarce in the crowded cities. Plus, rural areas are more peaceful and pollution-free which makes them perfect for long walks.

Question 6: What could be done to improve the experience of walking in cities?
Answer: Actually a lot can be done to improve the walking experience in the cities like planting more trees, constructing parks and separate lanes for walkers all across. Moreover, there could be special walking zones with no vehicles allowed during some hours of the day.

Answer: Indeed, there are a lot of advertisements. Apart from television commercials and print adverts, outdoor advertising is also very popular in my country.

Dear Megha,

I got the wonderful news of your baby girl’s birth. So, our lovely princess is finally with us. I saw her pictures on Instagram. She is really adorable.

I extend my heartiest congratulations to you, your husband and the entire family. I’m sure that her arrival will bring a lot of happiness and fortune in the family. I just can’t wait to see her. I have already bought a gift for her. I checked out several items and then finally selected a carrycot as I found it quite useful for the little one. You can carry the baby in it while going out or even at home to soothe her with the toys hanging in the cot.

Finally, I’m planning to visit you next Friday, the 5th of October, at around 4 pm. So, please let me know if it is convenient to you. In case, you have any other plan for Friday, I can come later as well.

Yours lovingly,
Sakshi
