IELTS speaking exam part 1 

IELTS Speaking Exam | Chủ đề: Friends & Family

Examiner: Do you come from a large family?

My immediate family is not very big. I have a large extended family that includes many uncles, aunts, and cousins. We are a close-knit family, and we like to keep in touch with one another, so birthdays, and other celebrations, are noisy crowded affairs.

Examiner: When was the last time you had a family function?

Our extended family got together last year to celebrate my grandfather’s eightieth birthday. He is very dear to my heart. He has kept up healthy relationships with the whole family, so it was a happy occasion that we all enjoyed.

Examiner: Would you take a friend on a family holiday?

I have. My family and my best friend got to know each other quite well, as she visited me quite frequently at my home. My family believes that we should nurture our friendships, so they encouraged me to bring my friend along when we took a seaside holiday last year.

IELTS speaking part 2

Examiner: Tell me about your best friend.

To answer this question in full,

  • discuss who the person is,
  • the circumstances of your meeting,
  • and what it is that you like about them.

My best friend and I got to know each other when we were still very young. We lived in neighboring houses. We had a lot in common, so we soon hit it off.

As we have grown older, we have moved apart. Because of this, we have to some degree lost touch, but anyone who has had a lifelong friend would understand that she will always be dear to my heart.

When we do find ourselves in the same city, we arrange a dinner date, so that we can enjoy each other’s company. We share the same ideas, and we share a common background.

We enjoy reminiscing about our past exploits. When we struck up a friendship, as children, we were inseparable. In those early days, we built up a relationship of trust that time and distance cannot break.

IELTS speaking part 3

Examiner: Do you think that after-hour friendships between working colleagues are appropriate?

I think that it is important to have a good working relationship. Colleagues should extend the hand of friendship to newcomers in the workplace. I don’t believe, however, that professional relationships should extend into the domestic domain as this may affect office politics.

Examiner: Do you think that social media is changing the way that we relate to our friends and family?

In some ways yes. Social media allows us to build up relationships with distant cousins, even with those that live on foreign soil. It also helps us to make connections with long lost friends, who we may never have spoken to or seen again. On the other hand, we often spend far too much time on our digital devices instead of socializing face to face.

Examiner: Do you think that people who enter into a long-term relationship, should continue with their friendships from their single days?

I think that it is important to nurture our friendships whether or not we are in a long-term relationship. Not all relationships stand the test of time, and if you have relationship problems you may one day need a shoulder to cry on. In my view, too many people abandon their friends when they become involved in relationships.
