IELTS Speaking 2017 Questions # Home and Mirror

This time we present to you a series of questions on home and mirror along with their answers that have been recently asked in the IELTS speaking section.


Where are you from?

I am originally from Almora, a hill station in Uttarakhand near Nainital and is around 300 kms from the capital of India, Delhi. But, due to my father’s frequent transfer, I have lived in lot of places in India. Presently, I am in Bhubaneswar for my job.

Is it a nice place to live in?

Almora is a beautiful place to live in. It is surrounded by Himalayas and other hills. Everytime you get out of your house, you feel as if you are in heaven. The climate is amazing, even after the global warming happening across all over the world, it is one of the places where we still don’t require fans during summers. Being a small town, most people know each other so it seems like an extended family.

Are you planning to live there in future?

Definitely yes. Right now, I have just begin my career and I am trying new things out and learning how things work. But, ultimately I wish to go back and settle in Almora in my paternal grandfather’s house and most probably do some sort of business there.

Do you often look in the mirror?

Not frequently. But, if I am going out for a party or may be on a date or if sometimes when I try a new look, I do look at mirror more than the usual times. So, one can find me catching a glimpse of me in the mirror of the car or the flash of a shiny thing, just to make sure that I am looking good. Apart from this, while preparing for a speech, well I usually prefer mirrors for that. But, otherwise mirror is surely not my best friend.

Do you have mirror at home?

Presently, I am living in a furnished apartment. So, everything that is there was already placed and yes I do have mirrors in my home. There are two mirrors, each in one room and then there is a mirror in the bathroom as well.

Is it a good idea to use mirrors in the interior design?

I believe it depends on the individual’s choice. Someone who loves their own reflection, can probably have lot of mirrors in their interior designs, otherwise one may choose not to have. But, for me, I would love to have mirrors in the interiors of my house. But, I would prefer having them in such a way that they reflect the outside beauty in the mirrors.
