By Christopher Pell 71 Comments. My plan is to add to this about once a month, so please check back from time to time for more common IELTS speaking topics and sample answers. Remember that these are personal questions and you should therefore give personal answers. You should not memorise answers and if the examiner thinks that you have done this, you will lose lots of marks.

What is your job? Why did you choose that job? Oh yes! Do you enjoy your job? Most of the time. Do you get on well with your co-workers? Yes, fine. What was your first day at work like? There were lots of teachers starting at the same time as me, 10 I think, so we all had a big induction day. The more senior teachers ran workshops with us to familarise us with the different systems they had and then we went for a team dinner in the evening.
What responsibilities do you have at work? On top of that we have several admin. Would you like to change your job in the future? Yes, as I said before, I like working by myself, so I would like to be my own boss. This will also give me more time to work on other projects. What is your typical day like at work? I normally have 2 or 3 classes in the evening and I start the day by doing all the planning at home. This normally takes between an hour or two depending on the lessons.
I then take the rest of the day to spend with my family, before going to work around 3 to print off my materials and then I teach all evening. What would you change about your job? As with most English teachers, we have to teach what is on the curriculum and this can mean that you are teaching some things that are quite boring or not very useful for your students, so I would like to have more freedom to teach outside the syllabus.
What do you study? Is it a popular subject at your university? Do you enjoy studying it? On the other hand, modules like Land Law and Equity are really boring. Do you get along with your classmates? Yes, they are all really great. Most people like to socialise together in the evenings and this makes us a very tight group. If you know someone socially, it is much easier to work together in class. If you could change to another subject, what would it be?
I planned to study medicine, but then when I went on work experience I fainted at the first sight of blood, so definitely not that. Do you plan to use the subject you are studying in the future? We normally have to secure a job a year before we graduate and then work very hard to get a high overall mark. After that, I will probably do a Masters in law to become a specialist in one particular area.
What is the most difficult part of your subject? You have to remember lots of legislation and cases and not only remember their names but also how the effect each part of the law and how they interact with each other. Physically it can also be exhausting because we have to read very dense texts for a few hours every day. What would like to study in the future? Why did you choose your university?
Mostly because it is close to my hometown and most of my friends were going there. I kind of regret it now. My hometown is on the south-east coast of Northern Ireland. What do you like about it? It has everything; fantastic beaches, rolling mountains, dense forests and picturesque countryside.
What do you not like about it? How often do you visit your hometown? Not as much as I should. There is an old Norman castle that sits on top of the highest hill of the town. Do many people visit your town? Thousands of tourists visit every summer. They come from the capital city mostly to get away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Is there any way your hometown could be made better? If I had to say something, it would be to improve the roads, they are in a terrible state and cause a few car accidents every year.
How has your hometown changed over the years? Since I was a child the town has almost doubled in size and population. It used to consist of just one main street, but now there are many new housing developments and apartments next to the water.
With all these new people moving in, it has changed the character of the town a little bit, people are not as friendly as before. Are there good transportation links to your town? The public transport system consists of just buses that pass through the town on an hourly basis. Would you recommend the town to people with children? Yes and no. It is obviously a great place to bring up kids because there are so many things for them to do like swim in the sea, play in the forest and run on the beach.
However, the good schools are pretty far away and I remember having to get up really early every morning to catch a bus to school that was 20 miles away. Do you live in a house or a flat? I live in a 3 bedroom flat on the 11th floor of a big apartment building. Who do you live with? I live there with my wife and little baby son.
Is it a big place? It has 3 large bedrooms, one for my wife and I and one for my son when he gets older. It also has a smaller bedroom that I use as a study and to store things in. The kitchen is small but it is part of a big open plan living room, so there is lots of space for the family. What is your favourite room? How is your apartment decorated? The walls are all white and the furniture is also either white or black. There are very few ornaments or pictures because again, I like to keep things quite minimal and I hate clutter.
Is there anything you would like to change about your flat? I would like to have a big balcony. We have a sort of balcony at the moment, but we mainly use it for washing and drying clothes. It would be really nice to have some tables and chairs on a proper balcony, with maybe a few plants, so we could sit there in the evenings and relax.
Do you plan to live there for a long time? I really like where I live but it is really far from where I work in the centre of town. It takes around 45 minutes to drive there by motorbike and in the hot season and wet season it can be really uncomfortable, so we will consider moving closer to the centre in a year or so. Do you have a garden? It takes around 40 minutes to walk around it. It has a few play parks for the kids, a number of gyms and four small lakes.
We are really lucky to have it and I try to go for a walk around it every day, if I have time. Are there many amenities? Not really, because it is on the edge of town. If you want to go for a nice meal, use a swimming pool, go shopping or head out for a drink, you really have to drive for about 30 minutes.
