IELTS Speaking Sample Answer | Learning about another culture

When I was growing up I always wanted to visit London, in England. I remember watching a program about Sherlock Holmes on TV and I thought London was very interesting and exciting. Hopefully, next year I’ll be studying in London at the London School of Economics.

I wanted to learn more about English culture from British people so I joined an English conversation group here in my city where there were three different teachers from different parts of Britain, and one of them was from London.

We used to meet in a local school for a couple of hours each week, usually on a Friday evening, after classes, and the different teachers would take it in turn to organize different activities for the people who attended so that we could practice our English conversation skills.

There were about 12 to 15 people in the group and we usually had a good time, and most of us became good friends as well.

My main reason for going to the conversation group was to practice my English conversation skills for the IELTS Speaking test and learn as much as I could about England before my trip there next year.

These meetings gave me a chance to learn a lot more about life in England, and in particular London. It was really good to be able to speak with people who could tell me all about everyday life, social activities, how people think, some of their values, and talk about popular music there, food and everything else to do with their culture.

Now I feel that I understand a lot more than what I has simply read about in text books before and I’m really looking forward to spending time in London next year.
