IELTS Speaking Sample Questions # Ideal House


I currently live in an apartment with two rooms and a kitchen and although I like my house, I would love to move into a cottage in the near time. The idea of living in a cottage in the countryside, truly makes me feel excited about life. The cool breeze, the no traffic, the less stress and the beauty around to savor.

Being brought up in different parts of the country and having lived in Dehradun for around 6 years, it is in the hills that I find my solace. So, my cottage will definitely be in either Almora or the hills of Mussoorie. It will be a cottage with two floors. On the ground floor will be three rooms, where I will be living with my family and on the first floor, I would love to have two rooms. One of them will be a study room and the other will be a library.

I would love to decorate it with all the things that I have collected over a period of time traveling across the country. There are some paintings and then some of them are the collages of different pictures collected, some are memories of people I met. I want my cottage to have all of the memories of people I have met in my life. I want to share my life with my husband and my parents. It would be great fun for all of our families to live together in a beautiful house and make our own living.

House is the most important part of our lives and having the house of my dreams along with the people I love the most, that will definitely be life for me.

Shifting is always a problem and involves a lot of things that need to be taken care of. But, if they are not taken care of properly, they tend to cause issues like management and adjustments. Some people face issues because they are not able to adjust to their new house. Or the new people around them!

Do you think people in your country like to live with their parents?

Most people in my country love to live with their parents, but then with the new generation and the concept of modernization and westernization creeping in, there are some people who tend to not live with their parents. They want to enjoy their own freedom and become more independent. Our country is seeing this shift, with more and more people moving towards the independent life style, whereas there are many who deep rootedly wish to live with their parents.
