IELTS Speaking Test Answers | An interesting conversation

A few years ago I met a person, her mane was Sue, while travelling in London and we got talking – it was an interesting conversation because I had never met a person who thought exactly the same as I do about so many different things, and yet we both come from different parts of the world.

It started as just a casual conversation, but as we talked it became obvious that we had a lot in common, and we were staying in the same place so we arranged to meet up again later, and we went for something to eat and ended up spending quite a bit of time together over a couple of weeks.

Anyway, we started talking about ourselves, as you do, and ended up talking about all kinds of things, our likes and dislikes, politics, spiritual philosophy and a whole host of different topics over the time we spent together – it was really surreal at times – almost like having a conversation with myself. I mean, I’ve met loads of people, and sometimes we agree on some things and disagree on others – but Sue was different, we seemed to like exactly the same things and have the same views about almost everything we chatted about.

As far as an outcome, well it wasn’t just the outcome of one conversation, but more as a result of talking to each other over a period of a couple of weeks, and we decided to stay in touch with each other. Since we first met I’ve travelled to visit her and she’s also come to visit me and we’ve become good friends. Like I said, we live in different countries but we stay in touch by phone and Skype and usually speak to each other once a week to catch up with what the other has been up to.
