Cambridge IELTS 9 Speaking Test 1 Answers

What games are popular in your country? [Why?]

I think the most popular games, especially among young people are online games and video games, without doubt. Young people in my country aren't really that interested in most of the traditional games, although we may play some board games sometimes with our families. Console games and online gaming are a big thing because it's cold where we live for many months every year so we spend a lot of time inside at home or with friends, and gaming is good fun.

Do you play any games? [Why/Why not?]

Yes, some of my favourites are Final Fantasy and Medal of Honor because I used to play them a lot. I play them because I like the interaction and the intensity of it - it's more interesting than watching TV or other activities. If I didn't have to do anything else, I'm sure I could spend all day gaming.

How do people learn to play games in your country?

In general, as kids we learn to do all sorts of things. Some of us learn to game, others learn to play soccer or other sports. I started playing games with my older brother when we were both younger, then I had some friends at school who also played and right through university I always found other people who played the same games as me. Of course with multi-player online games you meet players from all over the world and we all learn from each other.

Do you think it’s important for people to play games? [Why/Why not?]

Is it important? If you like playing them, then yes. If you don't like them, then no. I mean it's not like going to school or learning to drive a car and other things like that which are important in life for your future and to make life easier. There are many people who live without playing games, it's a personal thing, like a hobby or interest, but it's not important in the sense that everyone needs to do it. My parents never did.

i think, the answers are not in line with what IELTS are looking.
For instance, 3 points is a generic question but the answer is mentioned as "what i like to play game".

hi, thanks for commenting. So what do you think the IELTS examiner is looking for in your opinion?

These are sample answers which are relevant to the questions, and an appropriate length for Part 1 IELTS speaking questions. Obviously there are many possible ways to answer these questions - but there is no right or wrong answer in the IELTS speaking test.

You are evaluated on how well you express your ideas in English.

How would you answer these questions?

Again, thanks for commenting. Good luck with your IELTS test!
