IELTS Speaking Test Part 1
What is your full name?My name is ....
Can I see your ID please?of course, yes, here it is.
Do you work or study?I'm a student at the Asian University for Women in Dhaka.
What is considered typical food in your country?In general, the most common ingredients consist of flat bread and rice, but there are many regional foods which are also popular. We like to eat chicken, beef and mutton, and vegetables, dal and many dishes are prepared in the form of a curry. I think chatpati, mutton rezala and kheer are the favorites in my family.
Do parents usually have dinner with their children in your country?Traditionally, yes, and in my house we always eat together unless my father is away travelling on business. Maybe things are changing slowly as more young people seek employment in the large cities and develp their own livies independently of their families, but in general mealtimes are very important and sharing food together has a very strong tradition and is seen as important for families to share this time with each other.
In your opinion, is it important that parents and children eat together?Personally, yes, I think it's very important. As I was growing up as a young girl I can still remember my father telling us about things while we ate together, I also remember when maybe some other family members, like one of my uncles, would visit, eating together was always very interesting and an opportunity to share and learn more. I still like having meals with my family.
IELTS Speaking Test Part 2
IELTS Speaking Cue Card Answer | Describe an unusual activity you did recentlyI can tell you about a trip I made a few months ago. I went to London in the UK with one of my professors from university. We were part of a research team that went from Bangladesh to meet with some other teams from around the world in London and discuss an international project that we have been working on for the last few years.
I had never been to london before, so it was amazing for me. I had often seen pictures from my father, who used to spend a lot of time there on business, years ago, but I never dreamed that I would be visiting it myself this year.
My professor and I spent about a week in London, three of the days were basically for work and then we had one free day and the weekend to see some of the local sights and experience a little of the culture of London.
It wasn't a lot of time but it was still nice to be able to see some of the famous places and see all the people from around the world. It's such a cosmopolitan place.
We spent hours looking at famous buildings and every now and then we would stop and sit in a cafe and drink something, to rest a little before continuing. On the second last day we actually got lost on 'the tube', that's what they call the London underground train system, it's massive and we got our directions completely wrong.
Luckily for us some local people helped us get to where we wanted to visit. I think they must be used to seeing lost 'tourists' all the time.
It was a really wonderful and interesting experience for me, as I had always dreamed of visiting England, I just didn't think it would be this year - the trip was a surprise, but it was the most unusual activity I did recently.
