IELTS Speaking Sample Questions # 2018Series

Water is the basic necessity of life. One cannot imagine life without water and neither can one think of drinking bad one! With all forms of life surviving on water, the body loses it through breathing, sweating, and digestion, which is why it is so important to rehydrate by drinking fluids and eating foods that contain water. The body uses water in all its cells, organs and tissues to help regulate the temperature and maintain the other bodily functions. This time we are looking at some recent questions asked in the IELTS speaking test asked in 2018 in some country.

Do you drink tab water or bottled water?

I live in an area that is near to the ocean and so in tap water, we mostly get a lot of chlorine. Bottled water is therefore what I prefer, or even purified water.

Is it affordable? Why?

Drinking bottled water is very much affordable in our country because it is available across all the main street corners at a cheaper price. Most sellers have aqua guards installed in their shops and generate the purified water which further is sold through water bottles.

Do you think people should drink the good bottle of water? Why?

Definitely. Water is the basic necessity of life and one cannot deny the importance of it our lives. Drinking water from a good bottle helps an individual not only benefit in health but also in life. Drinking good healthy water from the bottle helps in keeping the brain sharp and ensures that you take better life decisions.

Have you been thirsty and there was nothing available to drink?

So many times, it has happened that I have felt thirst down my spine but did not have anything to drink. Once, I was traveling to Bengaluru and mid way the bus went down. There were no shops around and I could not find anything to drink or eat. It was only when the bus started and landed us in the next place, that I could drink some water.


IELTS Speaking Sample Answers #Internet


IELTS Speaking Sample Answers #Internet

Internet is one of the greatest discoveries mankind has ever made. We live in a globalised world where it has become so easy to pass information from one end of the globe to the other. Internet has changed the way we communicate and generate new ideas. It has given rise to numerous new organisations and billion dollar companies. Internet has become such an integral part of modern day society that most of our day to day activities depend upon the internet.
Q1.Do you use much during the day?
Ans.Yes, a lot of my day to day activities revolve around the use of internet. I majorly use internet for social media and to read news online. As internet has made banking services so convenient and its available 24*7, I use it to check my balance and keep a record of my transactions. For work related purposes I tend to use a lot of email and I have recently started writing content as a freelancer for a social media site. Writing content involves huge amount of research and access to loads of material which is only available on the net hence, I can say my life revolves around the internet nowadays.
Q2.What are some of the advantages of the internet?
Ans.The internet offers goods of advantages to the end user. There is an endless list that I can discuss here but my main focus will be on online shopping. Internet has changed the way we buy products. Global brands competing against each other selling millions of products over the internet has made it very convenient and beneficial for the consumer. With the click of a button goods are delivered to your doorstep and before buying the product one can read the reviews on the product left by various shoppers. Return policy is also very easy and it has also uplifted the postal services in the country as millions of products are shipped throughout the country using different courier and postal services.
Q3.Do people in your country use the internet a lot?
Ans.India is one of the largest users of internet in the world. With a massive population of 1.3 billion people and huge connectivity it has certainly changed the way we behave as a country. Smart phones are very cheap and internet tariffs cost second to none due to the ever growing competition in the telecommunication sector. Social media sites such as Facebook, Instagram, twitter etc are very popular among the young generation in the country. India has the largest number of active Facebook users in the world and global internet giants are looking at it as the next big destination to expand their business. Whatsapp (an end to end encrypted messaging application) is also very popular as it does not cost anything to send messages or to make calls through this app. This app uses data rather than using talk time or message allowance provided by your network provider.
Q4.Do you do any shopping on the internet?
Ans.Yes certainly, I shop for most of my stuff online. Busy schedule and massive work load has made it very difficult for me to step out and buy products that I need for my daily needs. Toiletries, clothes, electrical devices and groceries are products that I generally buy from the internet on regular basis. Recently I came across a website that sells fresh organic fruits and vegetables and offers next day delivery so I will be trying their services in the near future as I believe in sustained farming and organic farming promotes a healthy lifestyle.
Q5.What type of internet services do you use at your office?
Ans.Most of the work at my office is related to writing mails and marketing. We have various clients across the world and we have to communicate with them in their own language. Google translate and other translation websites are used very often to make contact with these clients and develop a professional business relationship. Financial transactions and card payments are also processed through internet as the client base is international. We have to process a wide range of electronic payments and use the banking facilities on a daily basis.

IELTS Speaking Sample Questions # Communication

IELTS SPEAKING SAMPLE QUESTIONS # COMMUNICATION , IELTSBAND7 DEHRADUNCommunication is the way of interacting with people and this interaction is often two ways! You express your opinions and talk your way out. Opinions need to be shared and there are different ways of doing it. You can do it either using spoken words or using written words. This time we are looking at Part III of the speaking section which talks about the ways of communication and the different ways of communicating.

What are the main differences between spoken and written communication?

Spoken and written communications, I believe are two different aspects of communication and come with their own varied differences. Written communication is stronger as compared to the spoken words because it is only when the words are written down so they get the meaning and confirmation to be true.

To what extent do you think the media influences how people communicate with each other?

Media has a major impact on the way people communicate with each other, it is the media that provides the people with the content. Even more, hearing too much of negative news often brings out the worst in individuals as they are surrounded by negativity all the time.

Do you think there are differences in the way men and women communicate?

Men and women are two different species and so do have different ways of communicating. Their thought process is different and their way of communicating henceforth is unique. Although I am not in a favor of grouping the two, most men are likely to be a bit louder, use more humor and while communicating tend to use more flamboyant words. On the other hand, women are slightly gentler when talking. They tend to be more respectful of the other person and use gestures while interacting.

Do you think that people become better communicators as they get older?

Communication is something I believe comes with time. Some people tend to become better as they grow old, but I think it is more of a matter of experience rather than just age. For instance, someone who has always lived a bit aloof with most people might not be good at communicating with people when compared with someone who has been very indulgent with people around.

Do you agree that education has a strong and positive effect on people’s ability to communicate effectively?

Education does not teach much about communication when only going to school or colleges is considered. This is something that most of the generation gets to do. What matters is how the students have utilized the education system. Some of the students get bullied in schools and colleges and this does impact the way of their communication in later life.

What impact has the growth of technology had on the way people communicate and how do you think this will develop in the future?

Technology has seriously impacted the way people communicate more than anything else. Gone are the days when people communicated using letters, we are now communicating in a click using smartphones and the internet. With technologies advancing, things are definitely going to get better or for that matter different. There is a possibility of being able to interact with people in virtual environments as well.


IELTS Speaking Cue Card Questions # Leisure Time

IELTS SPEAKING CUE CARD QUESTIONS # LEISURE TIME, IELTSBAND7, DEHRADUNLeisure time is the one where you are the master of the time! There is nothing to do that has been ordered by someone! You do what you wish to do, so it could be cooking or driving or sleeping or for that matter even dancing. This time we are looking at an IELTS Cue card that talks about the things that an individual likes to do during their leisure time.

Talk about something you like to do in your leisure time. You should say –

  • what is it?
  • why do you like it?
  • when did you picked it up?

also, explain, what will if you do if sparred from doing that activity.


Leisure time is the one time that I rarely get, but whenever I do get the time, I prefer reading books or listening to music. Reading has been my favorite since I was in my teenage years and it has helped me to grow as an individual. It taught me so much about different domains and helped me in understanding the new things that often come up in my life. For instance, it was when I read the autobiography of Gandhi that I learnt about the Indian politics.

It was during the final year of my college that I picked up the habit of reading and have not stopped much after that! During reading I used to mark the vocabulary words and read them through. Also, I would sometimes mark the paragraphs in the book and try to make notes of good learning’s provided in the book.

If someone tells me to never read a book in my life, I think I would then go for dancing. Dancing is something that fills my soul, it just energizes me and makes me feel happy about life. So, if not reading, I would be dancing my life through songs and making others happy.


Leisure time is the one time that we get to learn so much about ourselves. it is the time of our own and I usually prefer dancing in my leisure time. Dancing fills my soul with joy and helps me to understand life better. It helps in gaining different perspective about life and broaden my horizons.

I picked up dancing when I started working at a corporate company and started doing the basics. I enjoyed my time doing dancing in different clubs and the different forms of them. Sometimes, I enjoyed doing Bollywood and the other times I would enjoy doing Zumba.

After a few months, I started learning Kathak and now growing in Kathak. If not dancing, I think I would have went for acting. Acting is quite similar to dancing, one is allowed to be expressive and share their thoughts and opinions.
