IELTS Speaking Sample Questions # Childhood Toys
No childhood is complete if you don’t have toys to play with. Being such an obvious thing in the lives of children, it is very likely that you may get some questions related to toys in Part I of the IELTS speaking section. This time we are having a look at some of the questions and their possible answers.
Did you played with toys when you were a child?
Yes, of course. I enjoyed playing with toys as a kid. I remember playing with bey blade with all my gang and having those chats about whose beyblade was the best.
What other kind of toys did you liked to play with?
I loved playing cards, the ones with WWE or a sportsperson in it. We used to collect those cards and then exchange cards, play with them. I still remember, once we had a competition for who has the highest number of cards and I won in it.
In you country, do boys and girls play with the same toys?
If you look at it at a larger scale, no they don’t. Most girls prefer, barbie dolls or the other outdoor games like Kho-kho or i spy. With boys, it is more about video games and collecting cards or playing cricket outside. However, I think there are both sets of people. Some girls prefer video games and bey blade as well while some boys do love kho-kho as well.
Do you think toys help children to learn?
Definitely yes. There is so much one can learn if it is done right. So, with toys they learn to invent new games. They learn how to play in a team and then how to be competitive as well. These are big words but I think it is these games that help the children realise, once they grow that in life it is the small things that bring the biggest happiness.
I am a little sceptical about it. I think it is not only toys that help but there are so many things that teach a child. More importantly, it is not about toys or games, but about how they play it or with whom they. A pack of card is of no use if the child has no one to play with.
