IELTS Speaking | healthy lifestyles, restaurants, newspapers, natonal & international news, where you live

IELTS Speaking Test Part 1 Questions and Answers

Do you read newspapers?

No, not really, I prefer to read or watch news online. I find it easier and more convenient than buying just one newspaper to find out what’s happening.

What kinds of newspapers are there in your country?

There are the usual local, regional and national newspapers, and then there are the different styles such as broadsheets and tabloids.

Is reading newspapers essential?

No, clearly it isn’t. I haven’t read a newspaper in years, nowadays you can read about everything on the internet and in fact most newspapers publish the same news online that they print in the actual paper version, but apart from where you read your news or information – it’s not essential.

What do you find more interesting, the national or international news? Why?

Definitely international news, because it’s simply more interesting to see what’s happening in various parts of the world rather than just the news in your own country.

Describe the place where you live now.

Okay, so at the moment I’m renting a studio apartment – so there’s a small kitchen, one bedroom and a bathroom. There’s also a small balcony, but it’s really small. It’s in an old building near the city center but it’s convenient for all the amenities and facilities and it’s comfortable enough for now, as I’m by myself.

Compare it with the place you lived in before.

Well, before I used to share a house with some friends, it was a large family house with a large garden at the rear so there was obviously a lot more space to enjoy and the rooms were a lot bigger than what I have at the moment. There were 5 bedrooms two kitchens and several bathrooms so it was quite spacious, because it consisted of three levels. The only problem was that it wasn’t near the city, it was further out, so it wasn’t as convenient as where I live now.

Will you own a home in the future?

Maybe, I don’t know. Probably at some time in the future I’ll settle down and I suppose at that time it would make sense to buy an apartment or a house, maybe if I get married and want to have a family, it would be the smart thing to do, but it’s a long way in the future – I don’t have any immediate plans to buy a house and if I go abroad to work, which is my plan at the moment, I guess I could end up buying a home in another country eventually.

What would you like in your future home?

Probably the things that most people want, enough space, maybe a nice garden or area outdoors where you can relax, maybe eat with some friends, rooms that are comfortable and large enough so that you don’t feel cramped and a good location where it’s convenient for getting to work and so on, but quiet and safe at the same time so that if I have children I won’t need to worry about them playing outside.
