IELTS Speaking Part 3: questions related to parties/celebrations


Question. 1: What are the main reasons why people organise family parties in your country?

Answer: Family parties are very popular in my country. Most People organize special parties on birthdays and marriage anniversaries. Some young adults give parties after getting good grades in their exams or after being promoted to a high level position.

Question 2: In some places people spend a lot of money on parties that celebrate special family events. Is this ever true in your country? Do think this is a good trend or a bad trend?

Answer: Yes, wealthy people in my country throw lavish parties to celebrate special family functions. The pictures of their parties are often shown in newspapers. Even though it’s their own money, I feel that it’s a disturbing trend. It promotes discrimination in society and widens the gap between the rich and the poor.

Question 3: Are there many differences between family parties and parties given by friends? Why do you think this is?

Answer: Yes, there are. Family parties tend to be more formal as compared to parties organized by friends. Social decorum and elegance both are maintained in family functions. On the other hand, people feel freer in the parties of their friends. They normally don’t mind too much drinking or dancing, but in family functions any kind of misbehaviour can create a lot of problems.

National celebrations

Question 4: What kinds of national celebrations do you have in your country?

Answer: My country has two main national celebrations: the Independence Day and the Republic Day. The Independence Day is celebrated on 15th August and the Republic Day is celebrated on 26th January.

Question 5: Why do some people think that national celebrations are a waste of government money? Would you agree or disagree with this view? Why?

Answer: Some governments spend huge sums of money on national celebrations. If a country is facing problems like unemployment, illiteracy, poverty or poor infrastructure, then people will certainly complain about the money spent on national functions. In my view, the government should focus on the development of the nation rather than showcasing their military might in national celebrations.

IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # Concentration

Describe something that helps you concentrate. You should say –

  • what is it?
  • how does it helps you to concentrate?
  • how do you use it?

also, explain, when did you discovered it is the best method for you?

SAMPLE ANSWER

For a very long period of time, I had concentration issues and was not able to focus on one thing for a long period of time. I remember, being miserable at job and relationships until one day while reading an article, I read that the best way to be able to concentrate is to have a routine. Once you have a routine which includes exercise and proper nutrition, you can focus better.

I tried going to gym and even jogging only to find solace in yoga. I joined yoga at a near by place and have been doing it for few months now. Doing yoga in the morning not only provides me the right mindset required for the entire day but also calms me from any thoughts of the past. There are different yoga techniques that we do in the morning, but the best part is there are some I can try while working as well.

For instance, when I am really tired at work I try pulling up and down my toes. It not only relaxes my toes but also helps in making me concentrate better. Yoga has taught me that life is more than just have a great body, it is more about the balance in life.

IELTS Cue Card Sample Questions # Public Transport

Public transport is the common medium of transportation across the world. For all those, who often are not able to commute using their own vehicle prefer the public transport. This time we are looking at a cue card that talks about a visit that a person made using public transport.

Describe a visit that you made using public transport. You should say –

  • what was the visit?
  • when did you make?
  • with whom did you make the visit?

also, explain, how was your visit?

SAMPLE ANSWER

Being a solo traveler, public transport is the only medium that I confide in the most. It is the safest and one gets to interact with the local people on the bus. I remember visiting Shravanbelagola a few months back and it was on my journey to the place that I extensively used the public transport. Not knowing the places and the language, public transportation really did helped.

It was the time when people all over the country came to the place for the festival of Jains and so the government had also made the arrangements in that manner. I visited the place and on interacting with the locals got to know about the places near by and visited them using the public transport.

It was an amazing experience travelling to the place and although public transport did not made it seem simpler, but sure it made me feel more comfortable and safer. Also, using the public transport never made me feel as if it was a solo trip. I always felt surrounded by people.

IELTS Essay Sample Questions # Animal Abuse

You should spend 40 minutes on this task.
Some people say it is okay to use animals for our benefit while others believe it is not right to exploit them.
Discuss both the point of views and give your opinion.
You should write at least 250 words.

SAMPLE ANSWER

Over a period of two centuries, we have advanced exponentially in the area of medicine. From cancer to tuberculosis, we have almost cured everything with the help of animals. Although some people believe that it must be illegal to use animals for the testing of drugs, others argue that it is for the benefit of humanity.

The major medical treatments have been made possible through animal testing including cancer and HIV. Testing new drugs often has several side effects, sometimes even causing death. Considering this, it could be very strenuous to get human volunteers for testing, hence hampering the progress. Secondly, we as humans share similarities with animals. Testing drugs on any other species would not give the expected results.

However, with animals being used for testing, countless animals are experimented on and then killed after their use. Others are injured and have to live their remaining life in captivity. Even more, often many drugs never see the light of public use. Most animal activists stand against the death of innocent animals because many times the tests fail without any positive outcome. In addition, animal testing often costs an enormous amount of money as animals must be fed, housed and cared for testing.

Overall, in my opinion, each animal is an integral part of our Earth’s ecosystem. The ongoing experimentation on animals can have devastating implications in the long rung. Keeping in mind that many animal species are becoming endangered, this issue deserves immediate attention. We should start looking for alternatives of testing drugs on animals.
