IELTS SPEAKING TEST PART 2

Describe an occasion when you changed school or home.

You should say:
  • when it was
  • the reason for the change
  • if the change was easy/difficult
and explain how you felt about the change.


A Few months ago, I decided to go back to my hometown, because I really needed a decisive change, I had lived outside it for almost 11 years in a cool and large city and it was the right time to go. When I came back, I felt like a stranger in my own city, and everything had changed, even me. The people I used to know when I was a child were different, they had another life. I didn’t have family in the city anymore. All I ever knew before (my friends, the places and my home) had changed so much.

However, the new circumstances weren’t bad at all, because, they involved transformation, movement, and the implicit idea of taking the whole array of my own life experiences and facing up to the new situation, so that I could be a stronger and better person.

Moving back to my hometown was a bittersweet experience. The change implicated challenges and some deep learning, and I was ready for that. For starters, I tried to find a small, beautiful place to live, as well as a job and everything else that could be need. This was a process of adaptation and re-encountering what I used to know, while conceiving it in another way.

Usually, people have two strong feelings that arise in relation to returning to their hometown: a feeling of either regressing or progressing. I think experiencing each of them depends on your decision, the way you understand life and all those unexpected things that always happen and you can’t control. This is one of the most beautiful aspects of life: its unpredictable path that always surprises us. As far as I am concerned, I decided to come back and progress, looking at the horizon while walking towards it.

Almost 8 months after coming back to my hometown, I can say it was a good choice. My re-adaptation has been great. It has been a process of finding answers, and discovering myself has been positive and stirring. I enjoy the weather and the afternoon breeze. I also love walking around the city, because its small size offers a good quality of living, and the warm and peaceful people makes you feel comfortable. I think returning was not only coming back to the city, but it was also a process of rediscovering my roots, so that I can get back to me and understand myself better.
