|IELTS Speaking Questions & Topics Work (Part I) |
I’d just like to ask you some questions about your work.
Remember that English is the opposite of Thai: in English the missing information is at the beginning of the sentence: “What work…”
Use logic. This sentence means the same thing as, “What is your job?”
The worst thing you can do is to give no answer, or an answer that is too short--for example, “I do not work.” The examiner does not really care about your life—he is paid to evaluate the quality of your English. So good answers would be:
“I do not work now. I am a student. So I think that my job now is to be a student.”
“I do not work now. I am a student. I study engineering. I want to be an engineer in the future.”
“I write computer programs. I am a computer programmer.”
“I am a computer programmer. “I write computer programs.”
Notice that each sentence must have one subject noun and only one verb: “I write….”, “I am….”
If you say “I am write computer programs.” That is not English. It is just two verbs. It will get you a low score. Use only one verb.
Do not waste time thinking of a good answer. A good answer will not get you a higher score. Only good English will get you a higher score. So think of anything, and make sure you use good English. For example:
“What I enjoy most about my work is this: I like the people I work with. They are very nice. We help each other with our work.
“I study accounting. I want to be an accountant. I think I will enjoy this the most: Businesses can not do well unless they know their profits and losses. Accountants help to guide the business.”
“My main duties are these: I work part-time to help my family business. Sometimes I answer the phone. I answer questions for customers. I also take orders. I write what the customers want on order forms. I also do other things for the business.”
“There are several main duties. I must talk to the customer to plan the computer program. Then I must make a list of the important steps. Then I must draw a diagram of how the program will work. Next, I write the program. I test it. I correct any problems. Finally, I show it to the customer.”
“Yes. I am a nurse now. I want to get a Master’s degree and become a lecturer or professor. I want to teach other nurses.”
“I study business now. I want to get a degree in business. I do not know anything else that I want to do. I think I will love business. I want to have my own business someday.”
