IELTS USA Speaking Test Part 1

What is your full name?
It’s … / My name is …/ My full name is …

Can I see your ID?
Yes, of course, here’s my ID card / passport

Where are you from?
I’m from… / I come from…

Do you work or study?
I study; I’m a third year Economics student at the moment.

Are you a morning or an afternoon person?
Definitely a morning person, I like to get up early and get things done while I feel fresh and energized. I tend to feel a little lazy in the afternoons so I try to do all the most important things I have to do in the morning and then the less urgent things later in the day.

What is your favorite wild animal? Why?
It would probably be the lion because I like its majestic manner and it’s considered to be the king of the jungle. I love the way lions move when they run and also the male lion looks very impressive with its mane of hair and it always looks so proud when it’s standing there.

Do you like watching animals in zoos?
Sometimes, yes. It can be quite interesting but really I prefer to watch wild animals on the TV or internet… some of the wildlife channels are excellent and they have superb photography and videos showing wild animals up close in their natural habitat. For me that’s more interesting than seeing animals in the zoo.

What kind of music do you like to listen to?
What I call happy music… what I mean is that if the music makes me feel happy then I like it. I don’t really care who sings it or plays it or what kind of music it is… if I feel happy when I hear it then I like it. It also means that I have favorite songs more than a favorite singer or band, sometimes I only like one or two songs from a particular artist but none of their other songs, it all depends on how the music makes me feel.

Have your music preferences changed over the years? Why?
No, not really. I mainly listen to popular music on the radio or sometimes on You Tube. I’m not really a big music fan, I just listen to whatever is popular at the time and that’s what I’ve always done. I have a friend who’s really into music in a big way but I’m not like that. I don’t have a particular style of music or artist that I like better than any other. Maybe in the future I’ll be more choosy about what I listen to but at the moment it isn’t really important to me.
