IELTS Speaking Sample Questions # Patience

Patience is the key to success. There are people who believe that waiting for the right thing to happen is the best thing to do, when you don’t want to lose everything. While there are even some who believe that it is the desperation to do things that help people to be successful in life. This time we are looking at some questions related to patience that can be asked in the IELTS speaking section.

What do you think patience is?

Patience, I think is a quality of an individual who knows the work he or she does and also is aware of their own potential. A person who does not possess either of these things, can get frustrated by not getting any results. For example, a business man may know rightly when the next opportunity will strike or even, a right analysis of the opportunity in hand.

Do you think patience is important?

I think definitely yes. Patience according to me is someone’s stubbornness of not falling down or losing hope. It is not about waiting for something to happen, but rather of not allowing the unnecessary to take a toll of life. So yes, definitely it is important.

Do you think patience is important part of being polite?

In my opinion, politeness is not about the tone of your speech but also what you say. So, if I very calmly ask you to get lost, it is still rude. But, then too an extent, yes patience does help in being polite. So, a person who is patient enough to listen to the other person, is more likely to have a better understanding of the others opinion.

Would you say you are a patient person?

Well, I am a patient person in parts. So, there are some things I can wait for but then there are things that just make me go mad. And for them, I am not at all patient. Overall, I think I am not a very patient person, but I am trying to be one.

Have you ever lost your patience?

Well, there have been times I do lose my patience, but it is after a certain threshold. So, recently I lost my patience at my house. I was working on the staircase late night and when I came down to have a sleep my flatmates had already shut the door. I did understood their point of view but the next morning when I tried to knock again, no one opened. That moment I did lose my patience because I had not slept the entire night and was dying to sleep. So,I banged the door several times.

What do you become impatient about?

Mostly, I do get impatient when I am doing some work that I don’t like much but because of it I am not able to do things that I love. So, for example, there are days when I get stuck with my 9 to 5 job but then I don’t get time to meet my friends or write for my blogs. These things make me very impatient.
