|IELTS Speaking Questions & Topics School ( Part 2 ) |
One of the biggest problems about a question like this is that there is not much to talk about. If you talk for 50 seconds (less than a minute) and then stop talking because you can not think of anything to say, you will get a low score, because they have to give you a low score if you talk for less than one minute.
What you say does not have to be important. It does not have to be accurate. It does not even have to be true. It does have to be good English, and it does have to be more than one minute long. All they care about is having an example of your English to determine its quality—compared to a native English speaker. Think of it as if you were talking to a friend. A good strategy is to use a lot of examples (they do not have to be important examples.)
“Describe a school which you went to.”
“A school that I went to was the elementary school that I went to in my home town in the United States. An elementary school includes kindergarten and grades 1 through 6. Then there is a separate school called junior high school and a separate school called high school. My home town is in the middle of the United States. I went to this school a long time ago. At that time my home town was small, so the school was small. I was there from kindergarten to the sixth grade.
“At first, I did not like school. Just like many children, I was afraid and did not like to be away from my home. Gradually, I liked it more. I made friends that I had all the way through high school. I think that is a good thing about a small town. As a child at school, I loved to play on the playground. We played many games that included a ball and lots of running. Here are some examples. “Dodge ball” is a game where the children stand in a circle. Other children stand in the middle of the circle. The children on the outside throw the ball back and forth and try to hit the children on the inside. The children on the inside try to “dodge” the ball. That means they try to run away from the ball so it does not hit them. If the ball hits them, they have to leave the circle and go and sit down. When they all are sitting down, then they change teams. The team that was on the outside is now in the middle. This is just one example of the many games we played.
It was hard to learn things in elementary school. I thought math was difficult. Sometimes it was boring. But there were also fun things. I loved art. The teacher also used art to teach us other things. For example, after we studied history, the teacher let us make pictures of what we learned.
