IELTS USA Questions & Sample Answers Part 3 Speaking Test

This is another example of a Part 3 question from a recent IELTS speaking test in the USA.

Is it important to be part of a family business?

It’s not necessary… I suppose each person should be able to choose what they want to do. I guess that if your family starts a business then the hope is that one day you might begin working with them and eventually take over the running of the business one day when they are old. And let’s be honest, there’s not much point in a family trying to persuade their son, or daughter, for example, to work in the family business if they are really not interested in doing so – it is just creating problems for the future.

So, while it might be nice or good for children to be part of a family business from the parents’ perspective, it’s not necessarily important for the children to end up working in the business if they have other plans.
