IELTS Speaking Sample Questions # Weekend
Weekends or so to say Saturday and Sunday; the days that strike most to the corporate people. These are the days that people forget about their mundane routine and try to do something they are passionate about. This time we are looking at some sample speaking questions related to weekends.
How do you usually spend your weekends?
I work for an IT firm in my country and weekend is the time I have for my own interests. So, on weekends I usually go out and explore the city or write on my blogs. This is also the time I get for practising speeches and there is a dance class I have to attend. So, Saturday and Sunday usually goes on in extra curricular things that I have planned for myself.
In your country, do men and women usually do the same kind of things on weekend?
Generally speaking, men and women do have different interests in my country. However, with time I believe the line of difference has got blurred between men and women. It has become more of an individual approach. So, people from IT industry usually go out and meet people or do some activities like Toastmasters or any other club. Then there are others who go to a cafe or read books or travel.
When do you spend time with your family?
I live quite far from my family so spending time with them involves a lot of planning. It is usually twice a year that I get to spend some time with them. On daily basis, we simply talk on the phone or over a skype.
Do you have any plans for next weekend?
There are some weekends I do plan for but then most of the time times there is no plan. But the next weekend is something I planned for almost a month ago. There is a camera workshop that is happening in my city over the next weekend. It is organised by Canon for women and they will be teaching the nuances of photo taking.
Is there anything new that you’d like to do on weekends?
There are some weekends I wish to travel and click photographs and get to know about the city more. Also, I am planning to join dance classes over the weekend. Presently, I am living in Orrissa and want to leran the regional dance of the place.
Do you like working on weekends?
Well, if the work revolves around things that I love, like writing or photography then yes I do love working on weekends. It makes working for others so much more easier. But, doing things that I am doing on weekdays even on weeknds is something I try to avoid.
Do you think employees should work on weekends?
We as individals are accountable first to ourselves and then towards others. So, working for teh company even on weekends is something I do not support. In my opinion, a person should work on himself or herself on weekends as it will help him or her to improve their personality.
Do you feel that weekends now are more important to you than when you were a child?
Weekends for me have always been the source of entertainme me since childhood and I remember cherishing them for as long as I can go back down the memroy lane. They are important for me even now and so there is not much of a difference. However surley, an there is more of awareness on what differnet things cna be doen on weekends.
