IELTS USA Speaking Test Part 3

Is it necessary to be well-informed?
It might not be absolutely necessary but it’s probably better than being ignorant about what is happening or going on in the world around you. Everybody is always talking about how globalization affects everyone and everything so it makes good sense to know what’s happening in the world because it can affect lots of different things. Obviously it’s impossible to know everything about all the events that are happening, but you can certainly keep up with the main ones that are happening just by spending a little time watching the news.

IELTS Speaking Part 2 Sample Answer

When I was a child I became interested in kick boxing and took classes for two years. Through that I discovered that I really like physical activities and especially training and I’ve tried most types of training exercises such as weight training, TRX and Crossfit. I usually train all the time with just a rest day or maybe two every week but even when I don’t go to the gym I usually do something active even on a day off. Maybe I’ll go biking or hiking or swimming just for a change.

IELTS Speaking Test Part 3 Questions

What mode of travel do you prefer? Why?
Actually, I quite like most types of transport, so when I travel I enjoy going by plane or train or even boat sometimes. It depends where I’m travelling to.

Sometimes they’re good, I mean there have been some funny ones and the video ads on the internet are sometimes interesting, but generally I don’t pay much attention to advertising unless I’m really interested in buying something, and even then I’d probably go and read some reviews or stuff like that rather than make a buying decision based just on an ad.

When was the last time you used a taxi?
Actually, it was about a month ago when I was on vacation – to go from the airport to the hotel we’d reserved.

Why did you use a taxi?
Because when we arrived we were very tired and couldn’t be bothered figuring out the bus system and how to get to the hotel on public transport, we’d probably have gotten lost. It was much quicker and easier just to take a taxi.

Did you think the taxi service was good?
Yes, I suppose so, the driver seemed to know where he was going, he knew the hotel, apparently it’s quiuite popular with tourists so we didn’t have to try and explain directions or anything like that to him. And the cost seemed to be reasonable for the distance we travelled, so really, no complaints about it.
