Các câu hỏi trong phần thi thứ nhất của bài thi IELTS Speaking, sẽ nói về những chủ đề xung quanh bạn như:

  • Cuộc sống
  •  Công việc của bạn
  • Việc học hành
  • Sở thích của bạn và những điều bạn không thích
  • Thói quen của bạn

Những từ như kiểu sau đây sẽ xuất hiện rất thường xuyên trong những câu hỏi

Chỉ khoảng trên dưới 30 giây là vừa đủ cho câu trả lời trong part 1

Mỗi câu trả lời nên có hai phần như sau:

  • Phần để đưa ra câu trả lời trực tiếp Do you - yes

Dạng câu hỏi hay gặp IELTS Speaking Part 1

Các bạn cần nhớ rằng các dạng câu hỏi trong phần thi IELTS SPeaking part 1 bị lại đi lặp lại rất nhiều

Ví dụ trong chủ đề Reading, shopping hay cooking giám khảo sẽ hỏi Bạn

Hoặc một trường hợp khác

  • How often do you watch television? [Why/Why not?]
  • How often do you use email?
  • How often do you write something by hand?
  • How often do you eat out in restaurants?

Các câu hỏi trong IELTS SPeaking part 1 có tính lặp, nắm được quy luật này, chúng ta cũng nên nhóm những câu hỏi cùng một dạng lại cùng nhau để có sự chuẩn bị tốt nhất cho mỗi dạng.

Ở mỗi một dạng, bạn cần biết được giám khảo mong đợi bạn điều gì, và hay đưa ra câu trả lời mà giáo khảo điều mong đợi

Dưới đây là các dạng của phần IELTS Speaking part 1

Chỉ cần một chút thông tin ngắn gọn và trực tiếp liên quan tới chủ đề của câu hỏi

Câu trả lời mẫu cho dạng 1 IELTS SPeaking part 1

Tell me about anything you didn’t like at your school.

Answer: Well, my high school was great for me for the most part except the fact I didn’t exactly like the idea of wearing the same shirt, the pant and the same shoes every day. Neither did I ever like the fact that my school offered us the same “boring” tiffin every late morning. Another thing that I really dislike about my school was that I had to face more “bullies” than I was perhaps ready to deal with.

Câu trả lời mẫu cho dạng 2 IELTS SPeaking part 1

In fact, I never have a “dull” moment at my job since I have been given the authority to “try” new things to improve the supply chain process of my company. Another thing that I really like about working at my company is that it makes me feel “important” since I am allowed to voice my concerns and opinions without any fear.

Sau khi đề cập mức độ ít thường xuyên

Câu trả lời mẫu cho dạng 3 IELTS SPeaking part 1

How often do you watch television? [Why/Why not?]

Answer: I am studying to pursue a post-graduation degree at one of the leading Engineering universities in China, and I also work at a shopping mall after my school hours until 9:00 pm. By the time, I arrive home after finishing everything, either it is a bit too late to do anything, or I am just exhausted. Therefore, I don’t really get to watch TV often unless there is a valid reason to do so.

Dạng số 4: Difficult - khó hay dễ

  • Is it difficult to learn to play a musical instrument?
  • Is it difficult to learn another language?
  • What do you find difficult about learning English?

Thường dạng này đi kèm với câu hỏi Yes No để bạn lựa chọn hành động này là quan trọng hay không

Nếu giảm khảo đã chắc chắc hành động này quan trọng thì họ sẽ đặt câu hỏi tại sao chúng quan trọng

Dù câu hỏi hay câu trả lời như thế nào, bạn cũng cần đưa ra phần giải thích cho lựa chọn của bạn

Một số từ có thể sử dụng cho dạng này

  • is key/ main/ crucial/ integral

  • What kinds of dancing are popular in your country?
  • Tell me about some popular dancing in your country?

  • Do you think that traditional dancing will be popular in the future? [Why/Why not?]

Ở dạng này các bạn có thể lựa chọn hai cách trả lời khác nhau

Cách đầu tiền: Trả lời thẳng rằng đối tượng nhắc tới có phổ biến hay là không và đưa ra một số ví dụ

Cách khác bạn có thể đề cập nó phổ biến hay không phụ thuộc vào từng huống: 
Ví dụ thả diều thì phổ biến ở nông thôn, còn thành thị thị không phổ biến

IELTS Speaking Part 1: Đơn giản hoá câu trả lời

Ưu tiên của bạn trong  IELTS Speaking Part 1 là phải thể hiện sự trôi chảy, không cần đề cập ngữ pháp và từ quá khó

Bạn sẽ nói trôi chảy hơn nếu bạn giữ cho câu trả lời phần 1 của mình đơn giản.

Dưới đây là một số ví dụ về cách tôi đơn giản hóa câu trả lời của học sinh.

Lưu ý: câu trả lời của học sinh còn một số sai sót.

Student's answer:
Logically people from different generation will have taste variation. Depending upon the maturity, music stars of their own age, impact of globalisation as well as technological development in music industry will divide younger and older generation.

My simplified answer:
Of course, people from different generations have different tastes in music. Popular music changes all the time, and most of us are influenced by whatever style of music is popular when we are growing up.

Student's answer:
Yes, I am fond of music. It is simply the medicine for my mind. When I am stressed, music remove stress. When I am happy, music inspires me to be more. It always in the centre of all my parties with friends. When I am sad, music takes me out glue and move forward.

My simplified answer:
Yes, I love music, mainly because it helps to put me in a better mood. When I'm stressed or sad, music picks me up and puts me in a positive frame of mind.

  • Do you enjoy the advertisements on television? [Why/Why not?]

  • Do you think most programmes on television are good? [Why/Why not?]

  • How often do you watch television? [Why/Why not?]

  • Answer: I am studying to pursue a post-graduation degree at one of the leading Engineering universities in China, and I also work at a shopping mall after my school hours until 9:00 pm. By the time, I arrive home after finishing everything, either it is a bit too late to do anything, or I am just exhausted. Therefore, I don’t really get to watch TV often unless there is a valid reason to do so.

  • Q. Which television channel do you usually watch? [Why?]
  • Answer: As I have mentioned earlier, I don’t really have much time to watch TV, but when I do get some time and opportunity, I like to watch “Discovery” and “AXN Asia”.

  • Answer: Well, it depends on what kinds of programmes I am watching.  However, having said that, I would say that many programs on television are not good because they offer a few educational perspectives. Even the news shows these days are not “objective” enough to offer the values of “news” and therefore, are not trustworthy. 

Chủ đề 7: Music

  • What types of music do you like listening to?

  • Can you play any musical instruments?

  • Do you think it’s important for children to learn to play a musical instrument?

  • Do you prefer listening to live performances or recorded music?

  • Do you like listening to music?

  • So far I haven’t met anyone who dislikes listening to music. However, when the workload is too heavy that requires me to stay highly focused, music is a huge distraction. Unlike many people who like listening to instrumental music because it highly benefits their concentration and study, in my case the music makes me feel instantly sleepy.
  • When do you listen to music?

  • Well, music is essential to humans in the whole world so I’m no exception. I usually listen to music when I’m in need of relaxation or a quick escape from the stressful world of work, or when I need to stay focus.
  • How much time do you spend listening to music every day?

  • Not very much, only when I commute to work in the morning and when I go back home in the evening. I always put on my earphones listening to my favourite music artists when I’m on the train as it helps me relax my mind and at the same time uplift my spirit. I cannot imagine my everyday life without music.
  • What kinds of music do you like to listen to?

  • Well, I only listen to one type of music and that is independent music, either indie rock or indie pop. I am supportive of indie artists as they are giving their best to showcase their raw talent in music without restrictions from record labels. As a result, they produce meaningful songs unlike some other pop artists’ music that is too commercialized - the artistry has been compromised because of the main goal which is to make a lot of money.
  • Does your taste of music change from the past?

  • Yes, of course. When I was in high school, my teen music taste was dominated by pop music with catchy tunes and fast tempos. However, now I prefer listening to instrumental music with gentle melodies to find peace and relaxation.
  • Do you play any kinds of musical instruments?

  • Due to my total lack of rhythm and the fact that I am tone deaf, I would not even consider embarrassing myself with any attempt to play a musical instrument. On a related subject, on the race occasion that I attempt to sing a hymn in church, along with everyone else.
  • How do you feel when you listen to music?

  • Everything depends on the type of music I’m listening to. For example, when you’re happy and listen to some happy music, it will boost your happiness. On the other hand, if you’re sad, sad music might get you even more sad. But most of the time, listening to some music helps me pick up my energy and chill a bit.
  • Do you like any foreign celebrities?

  • Absolutely. The person that I have had a soft spot for is Miley Cyrus. I guess most people at the same age as me grew up with Disney Channel and among its successful series, Hannah Montana starring Miley Cyrus would always be on top of my list. Although now she’s grown up, I’m still a big fan of her amazing voice and highly inspiring songs.

  • Have you ever been to a musical performance?

  • Once in a blue moon, I attend a concert, since the ticket price for foreign artists’ concerts is so out of my reach that I can only stay home and watch online. It was 2018 that I finally did go to a concert on my own, obviously, it was an international music concert. It was absolutely mind-blowing and unforgettable for me. 

Bạn đã biết hay chưa: Làm gì nếu bạn không hiểu câu hỏi do giám khảo đưa ra

Chủ đề 8: Musical Instrument

  • Which instrument do you like listening to the most? [Why?]

  • Have you ever learned to play a musical instrument? [Which one?]

  • Do you think children should learn to play a musical instrument at school? [Why/Why not?]

  • How easy would it be to learn to play an instrument without a teacher? [Why?]

  • Which instrument do you like listening to the most? [Why?]

  • Answer:  I mostly like the sound of a piano. The note that a piano produces is so delightful and melodious. It soothes the ear and refreshes my mind. The guitar is perhaps my second most preferred musical instrument and it is widely used with most of the music types.

 

  • Q.  Have you ever learned to play a musical instrument? [Which one?]
  • Answer:  I once tried to master the skills of playing the guitar. I even got admitted to a music school to learn to play the guitar but could not finish the whole course. I can play some basic tones and music in the guitar but I am not a skilled guitarist.

 

  • Q.  Do you think children should learn to play a musical instrument at school? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer:  I believe schools should have the facility for the interested students who want to learn to sing and play a musical instrument, but it should not be forced to all. If a child at school feels passionate about learning it, he/she should be given the choice to do so.

 

  • Q.  How easy would it be to learn to play an instrument without a teacher? [Why?]
  • Answer:  I think it was quite impossible in the pre-internet era. However, the online courses and the interactive video tutorials make it a bit easier to learn to play a musical instrument like a guitar or a drum without the direct supervision of a mentor these days. Nevertheless, having a teacher is tremendously beneficial as he /she inspires to learn and can be a role model for mastering the skills of playing a musical instrument.

  • Tell me about a school that you went to when you were younger.

  • What did you like about that school?

  • What subject did you like best at that school?

  • What would you like to change about that school?

  • Q. Did you go to a secondary/high school near to where you lived? [Why/Why not]
  • Answer: Yes, I did attend a high school which was close to where we lived.  In fact, it was very much within the walking distance which would take me only about 8 to 10 minutes to reach my school at a moderate pace. I attended that high school primarily because of the convenience, safety and security. Having lived close to my high school, it would always be easy for me to commute back and forth from my home without getting tired. Besides, my father had to live away from us because of holding a government service, so living close to high school would provide my father with a greater sense of safety and security for me as I wouldn’t need to travel far to attend my school. 

  • Q. What did you like about your secondary/high school? [Why?]
  • Answer: Getting an opportunity to study in a high school, after passing the elementary/primary school, is completely a new experience with new teachers, new books and new library to be accustomed to.  However, one of the best things, which I really liked about my school, was that it had plenty of open space in and around it with beautiful garden and a lake with crystal clear water for students like us to enjoy during the breaks in between our classes. Another thing that I really liked was our school would provide funds for us to organize picnics every month so that we could travel to some remote picnic spots (not too far from our school, of course), like in a park or forest site, and enjoy the outdoors while enjoying some delicious meals, cooked by none other than ourselves. Of course, the best thing about my high school was the opportunity, I got, to make friends who I still treasure to this date.

  • Q. Tell me about anything you didn’t like at your school.
  • Answer: Well, my high school was great for me for the most part except the fact I didn’t exactly like the idea of wearing the same shirt, the pant and the same shoes every day. Neither did I ever like the fact that my school offered us the same “boring” tiffin every late morning. Another thing that I really dislike about my school was that I had to face more “bullies” than I was perhaps ready to deal with.   

  • Q. How do you think your school could be improved? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer: Again, I liked my high school, for the most part, as it always tried its best to bring the “best” among us academically. But, it didn’t exactly encourage us enough to take part in “extracurricular” activities such as creating a school debate team or culture clubs. So, my high school certainly would need some improvements on those fronts. Besides, little works on to fixing and repairing some of the old building structures (by the way, it was a really old high school) of the high school would also go a long way to improve the “looks and sights” of an otherwise great school.

Chủ đề 14: Restaurants

  • How often do you eat out in restaurants?

  • What types of restaurants do you like best?

  • What types of restaurants are common in your city?

  • What are the advantages of eating out in restaurants?

Chủ đề 15: Friends

  • Which is more important to you, friends or family? [Why?]

  • Answer: To be honest, family comes first. However, there are some friends who become our family members. The bond between family members is often stronger but this does not mean that we do not have friends who are less important in our life. Being with the family makes us who we really are and friends make our life worth living.

  • How friendly are you with your neighbours? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer: I must say I am quite lucky to have good neighbours who are always supportive and well-behaved. I am quite close to them. We have been living in our neighbourhood for more than a decade and our neighbours have become our close relatives. We have a mutual understanding and an invisible bond that ties us together as good neighbours. I respect their opinion, privacy and try to step forward whenever they need me.  

  • Tell me about your best friend at school.
  • Answer: My best friend at school was John and he was a great friend. He was tall and brave. He taught me how to show courage when we are in trouble. He has a great impact on my life. Though he lives in Australia now, we regularly communicate via Skype. I specifically liked him because he was more like a brother than a friend to me.

  • Do you have many friends? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer: I have more than 10 friends and I am not sure if I should say this is many! However, I had more than 30 friends in my school days. With the passage of the time, the number plummeted. If I count my Facebook friends as real friends, the number would go high! 

  • How often do you go out with friends? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer: I meet my friends almost twice a week. I love to spend my weekends with them and sometimes I visit different places, watch movies and discuss different topics with them. I do not go out with all of my friends. I mostly hang out with 2-3 close buddies and go out with them almost 3-4 times a month.

  • Tell me about the most important festival in your country.

  • What special food and activities are connected with this festival?

  • What do you most enjoy about it?

  • Do you think festivals are important for a country? [Why?]

  • Tell me about the most important festival in your country.
  • Answer: Malaysia is a multicultural country where people of all religions and faiths live in peace and harmony, and one of the most important religious festivals in my country is called “Vesak day” (or Wesak) to commemorate the Lord Buddha’s Birthday which is usually observed during the first full moon in the month of May. To all Buddhist people in Malaysia, this is a very, very important festival because they believe that the Lord Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and death had occurred on the same calendar day.

  • Q. What special food and activities are connected with this festival?
  • Answer: A typical Wesak Day usually begins at dawn at Buddhist temples throughout Malaysia by getting devotees to gather in order to meditate on the Eight Precepts as well as having Monks in saffron-coloured robes to chant the sutras in unison. A candle procession is also the highlight of the celebration, and at the same time, offerings of prayers and burning of joss sticks/incense also run in full swing.

  • Q. What do you most enjoy about it?
  • Answer: What I enjoy the most about the “Visak” is that it manages to bring people from all walks of life in the spirit of “giving” and “charity” in order to the help the “less privileged” section of our society.

  • Q. Do you think festivals are important for a country? [Why?]
  • Answer: I don’t just think, but I actually believe the festivals are absolutely important for any country as it helps bring all kinds of different people together so that they could learn about each other and appreciate them, in a world which has seen too much hatred and animosities already towards each other. They spread brotherhood, faith, love, sense of respect and duty among the people without destroying others emotions and beliefs.

  • Is traditional dancing popular among young people in your country?

  • Do you enjoy dancing? [Why/Why not?]

  • Tell me about some popular dancing in your country?

  • Do you think that traditional dancing will be popular in the future? [Why/Why not?]

  • Do you enjoy dancing? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer: I don’t exactly dance primarily because I am not really good at it. But, please don’t get me wrong as I don’t have anything against “dancing”, and I do like to watch “dancing” but it is just that I never feel the “desire” myself or the passion to “shake” my body at the beat or sound of any music. I guess that it is just not in my “gene”. However, I do think that “dancing” is a “domain” which should be left only for the people who know how to dance.

  • Q. Has anyone ever taught you to dance? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer: Nobody has ever taught me how to dance because I was never really interested in learning it and nobody in my family was a dancer.

  • Q. Tell me about any traditional dancing in your country.
  • Answer: Our country has a rich culture, because of its multi-cultural and multi-racial heritage, with its fair share of traditional dance and music. Malaysia, sometimes referred to as ‘truly Asia”, has at least 15 different kinds of dances.  However, the most popular type is called “Joget” which is a lively dance with an upbeat tempo. It is usually performed by couples who combine fast, graceful movements with playful humour, and it has its origins in Portuguese folk dance, which was introduced to Melaka during the era of the spice trade.  Some of the other dances are also a bit more popular than the others, depending on which part of Malaysia you live in. 

  • Q. Tell me about some popular dancing in your country?
  • Answer: In Malaysia, Chinese Lion Dance is very popular which is performed during the Chinese New Year festival. Dragon Dance, another popular dance type, is typically performed to usher in the Chinese New Year. 
  • Besides, the Indian Bharata Natyam, a classical Indian dance, is famous in my country which is poetry in motion based on ancient Indian epics. Moreover, I can recall  "Bhangra" which is lively folk music and dance form of the “Sikh” community. Then "Zapin" is a popular dance in Malaysia that has its root in Islamic tradition finally, "Bamboo Dance" is a highly popular and entertaining traditional dance in which two long bamboo poles are held horizontally above the ground at ankle-height and then they are clapped together to a high-tempo drumbeat. 

  • Q. Do you think that traditional dancing will be popular in the future? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer: Malaysia is a very diverse country with many traditions and heritage which have survived for centuries. Many traditional dances have also survived for centuries just as they exist today because we, Malaysians, always try to promote and practice them in every kind of celebration and social gatherings one way or another. Therefore, it is only natural to assume that traditional dance in Malaysia will become more and more popular in the coming days. 

Chủ đề 22: Languages

  • What languages do you speak?

  • Do you think it’s important to learn a foreign language?

  • What languages are spoken in your country?

  • Would you like to learn another language in the future?

 

Chủ đề 23: Weather

  • What’s the weather like where you live?

  • What do you do when the weather is bad?

  • What type of weather do you like best?

  • Would you like to have that type of weather all year round?

  • Have you ever been in very cold weather? [When?]

  • How often is the weather cold where you come from?

  • Are some parts of your country colder than others? [Why?]

  • Would you prefer to live in a hot place or a cold place? [Why?]

  • Have you ever been in very cold weather? [When?]


  • Answer: I live in the Southern Bhutan area bordering India where the weather is hot and humid with the effects of a monsoon season. However, I did live in very cold weather for some times when I visited the northern part of Bhutan, bordering with Tibet, in order to live with my paternal aunt for sometimes when I was about a 10 years old boy before almost 20 years ago. Of course, I loved the snow there, but it was just way too cold for me probably because I am born and raised in a different kind of weather.
  • Q. How often is the weather cold where you come from?

  • Answer: Where I live in Bhutan, the weather remains cold for about 3 to 4 months from Mid-November to February, sometimes stretching till the month of March. However, our winter period can be really dry where temperatures can vary from 10 degree Celsius to 25 degree Celsius.
  • Q. Are some parts of your country colder than others? [Why?]

  • Answer: Bhutan is a rather small country, but its temperatures can vary extremely from the North to the South as well as valley to valley, depending on the elevation. For example, the northern part of Bhutan, bordering with Tibbet, can be extremely cold, and can be covered with snow because it sits on a rather high altitude while the western, the eastern and, central Bhutan (cities like Ha, Paro, Thimphu, Wandue, Tongsa, Bumthang, Trashi Yangtse, Lhuntse) mostly experience European-like weather because of its little lower altitude where winter typically lasts from November to March.
  • Q. Would you prefer to live in a hot place or a cold place? [Why?]
  • Answer: Sometimes, I feel cold even during the summer time (probably because of my low body temperature, I suppose). Therefore, the hotter the weather is, the better it so for me. Besides, I feel that putting on too many clothes every time I go out, and then take them off after coming back to home, is just a terrible waste of time. Then again, I could be wrong too about this “whole practice” of changing clothes!

 

Chủ đề 24: Hapiness

Chủ đề 26: Film or movies

  • Do you like watching films?

  • What types of film do you like watching?

  • How often do you watch films?

  • Do you prefer watching films at home or at the cinema?

  • Would you like to be in a movie?

Chủ đề 27: Weekends

  • What do you usually do at the weekend?

  • What do people usually do at weekends in your country?

  • Do you think your weekends are long enough?

  • How important do you think it is to have free time?

  • How do you usually spend your weekends? [Why?]
  • Answer: I usually spend my weekends by mostly doing the outdoors like enjoying swimming (on summer days), fishing and gardening. I enjoy these outdoor activities mainly because I spend too much of a time indoor at my work. Oh, by the way, I also like to go to my favourite restaurant with my friends in order to enjoy some “relaxing and fun” time. I enjoy doing all these outdoor activities because they make me strong, positive and rejuvenated to deal with “all-so-familiar-struggles” of our modern, tough and complicate world.

  • Q. Which is your favourite part of the weekend? [Why?]
  • Answer: My favourite part of the weekend is certainly the “morning” when I don’t have to worry about waking up early and getting ready quickly to get to work. Then, of course, I also like the part when I don’t really have to worry about going to bed “early” or staying up late at night. Even more special are the Friday nights when my mind is pretty much “occupied” with the very thoughts of enjoying a long weekend, waiting ahead of me. 

  • Q. Do you think your weekends are long enough? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer: Yes, I do think that my weekends are long enough because it helps me to rejuvenate for the challenges of the next week by allowing me to do the things that I really enjoy. Of course, an extra weekend day would certainly be welcome by many people like me, but I don’t see it happening in the near future. So, essentially, whether our weekend is long enough or not depends on how we plan to spend the time.

  • Q. How important do you think it is to have free time on the weekends? [Why?]
  • Answer: There is no doubt that work is important, but so is the recreation, families and friends. But, without enough free time, be it on the weekends or some other times, we just won’t be able to “recharge” ourselves, nor will we be able to interact with our families and friends enough in order to show them that they really matter in our lives. Therefore, it is absolutely important that we have enough free time in order to ensure a “balanced” life so that not only we can succeed in our professional life but also in personal life.

  • Are your weekday and weekend routines different?

  • What’s your favorite time of day?

  • What’s the worst part of the day for you?

  • What would you like to change in your daily routine?

  • Are all your days the same?

  • Tell me about your typical weekday and your typical weekend.

  • What is the balance of work/study and free time in your normal day?

  • What would you like to change in your daily routine?


  • Answer: Spending too much time in watching too much television after coming back from my work has become like a daily routine to me for the last several months, and I would really like to change it. It is not that only my wife dislikes this terrible routine, I also dislike it a lot because this extra television watching habit/routine doesn’t allow me to have enough sleep at the end of the night.
     
  • Q. Are all your days the same?

  • Answer: No, all my days are not the same just like a day in the winter time and a day during the summer season are not the same. And, as a result, I remain happy some of the days while “not-so” happy during the others. Also, some days, I become very productive at my work while some other times, I only wish that I could be more “productive.”
     
  • Q. Tell me about your typical weekday and your typical weekend.

  • Answer: My typical weekday starts with paying little “tribute” to my “Goddess” mother (which I do every day regardless of the weekday or the weekend). Then after taking my shower and breakfast, I hit the road in my motorbike to go to my work and arrive there at around 9 am. I finish my work at around 6 pm and then go to a nearby and local market place to buy some fresh groceries and meats/fishes. By the time, I return home, it is almost 8 pm in the evening. I finish my meal after that and immediately start watching TV and continue watching it until I go to bed after midnight most of the days.  My weekends are pretty much the same as the weekdays except I don’t go to work on the weekends. Of course, sometimes, during the weekend, I do take my wife and family out to a nearby park or restaurant to enjoy some quality time together.
     
  • Q. What is the balance of work/study and free time in your normal day?
  • Answer: I like to believe that my work life and free time for leisure and other activities in a normal day is pretty balanced since I almost always have enough time at my disposal, after my work hours, in order to interact with my family members and attending other important things, like doing grocery shopping and worshipping at temples.

Speaking IELTS part 1 chủ đề daily routine

Chủ đề 31: Family

  • Tell me about your family.

  • What kind of things do you and your family do together?

  • Who does the housework in your family?

  • Would you prefer to have a larger or smaller family?

  • Do you have a large family or a small family?

  • Answer: I have a small family of 5 people which includes me, my brother, my sister, my father and my mother. We all live together, except my sister, who is married and has her own family now. We enjoy our life as caring members of an extended family.

  • Q. Can you tell me something about them?
  • Answer: My parents are retired old citizens, and they have raised their family and children really well. My father used to work as a Director at the Agriculture Ministry in our country before retiring from his job about a few years ago while my mother has been a housewife for all of her life. Both my parents have lived most of their lives in the countryside before moving to (...say the name of the city where you live now...) with us because of our careers. My elder brother is a software developer and married to a lovely lady while my sister lives in another country with her husband. We are a family of great traditional values where we love and care for each other as best as we can. 

  • Q. How much time do you manage to spend with members of your family?
  • Answer: In this busy modern life, unfortunately, I don’t get as much time as I would have preferred to spend with my family members except during the weekend. Of course, if I ever manage to get back to my home from works earlier than usual, then I certainly try to make the best use of the extra time, added to my life. 

  • Q. What sorts of things do you like to do together?
  • Answer: They say that nothing brings a family together than a great meal.  So, as a family, our most favourite time also is when we all get to cook some of our favourite dishes and enjoy them together. And, we do this whenever we get an opportunity, but it happens mostly on the weekends. We also like to enjoy a nice movie, when my sister is around, together during the holidays and at the weekends. By the way, my younger sister has a “bubbly” personality, and she just loves birds. So, whenever she is around, she never forgets to “force” (to put it jokingly) all of us to join her in visiting her favourite “Bird Park” which is home to pretty much all kinds of birds from all over the world. 
  • However, another thing, that we really enjoy doing together, is when we all get to travel to our hometown which is located far outside of the city. We all enjoy being there as this place reminds us of a lot of our memories. 

  • Q. Do you get on well with your family? [Why?/why not]
  • Answer: We are blessed to have such a family where we all get along with each other very nicely primarily because we all try our best not to “impose” anything on the others. Besides, the mutual respect and appreciation, we have for each other, helps us get on well with each other. On top of that, as a great functioning family, I never shy away from sharing my thoughts and experience with any of my family member which always helps us to put things in proper perspectives. Finally, we never stop offering “gifts” to express our love for each other because “gifts” help build a stronger bond among the family members in my opinion.

Chủ đề  35.1: Travelling to work or college

  • How do you usually travel to work or college? [Why?]

  • Have you always travelled to work/college in the same way? [Why/Why not?]

  • What do you like about travelling to work/college this way?

  • What changes would improve the way you travel to work/college? [Why?]

  • Q. How do you usually travel to work or college? [Why?]

  • Answer: I usually travel to work on my motorbike since I live in a remote village area where we don’t really have any reliable public transportation system to commute back and forth from our works.  Besides, I like my little motorbike as it is convenient to use, and I can park it anywhere very easily.
  • Q. Have you always travelled to work/college in the same way? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer: Yes, I have always travelled to my work in the same way with my bike mainly because using a bike is very convenient for me since I have the freedom to go anywhere at my own pace. Besides, I have found out that travelling on my bike costs me significantly lesser than travelling in a public bus which, by the way, is not very reliable because of the poorly-built roads in the area where I live.
  • Q. What do you like about travelling to work/college this way?
  • Answer: The best thing, which I really like about travelling with my little motorbike, is that I can reach my destination within a short period of time which certainly wouldn’t be possible if I was to commute by a bus. Besides, after finishing my office works, I have to go to different places sometimes, such as visiting my relatives and doing grocery shopping, and doing those things on time would be really difficult for me if I didn’t have my bike with me.
  • Q. What changes would improve the way you travel to work/college? [Why?]
  • Answer: As far as changes are concerned, I would certainly like to see a much better public transportation system in the area where I live because, sometimes, on the rainy days, it becomes really difficult and dangerous to commute on a motorbike. Besides, the roads in my areas need to be rebuilt since they haven’t been repaired or rebuilt in a long time.

Chủ đề 36: Names

  • Do you like your name?

  • Is your name common or unusual in your country?
  • Answer:  Statistically speaking, this is not a very common name. However, from my experience, I can tell that I have personally met at least 10 others with the same name but with a different family name. 
  • Does your name have any special meaning? 

  • Does your name have any special meaning?
  • Answer:  My name is very special to me as it is to my parents. The first part of my name, Clyde, came from the name of a river, more specifically it is a Scottish river. The river was close to the location where I was born and I believe my parents wanted me to be as big as a river! The second part of my name, which is Entriken', is the family name of a famous ancient dynasty from Great Britain.
  • Who usually chooses babies’ names in your country?

  • How did your parents choose your name(s)?
  • Answer:  I learned that they were inspired by a name they found in the book and they took the surname from my grandfather. Thus they combined the name and selected it for me. However, this was the final step they went through to pick my name. As far as I know, they had to choose from hundreds of names, spend considerable hours to finally become satisfied with the name.
  • Would you ever change your name?

  • Did your parents choose your name(s)?
  • Answer:  Yes, my parents selected my name. When I was born, my parents wanted me to have a great name, at least to them. I have heard from my mother than my father brought a baby-name-book even before I was born. So the credit of my name solely goes to them.

  • If you could change your name, would you? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer:  My name is very special to me and I would never change it. For anyone, his/her name is quite unique and significantly important. I might take an alias someday if I need to ghost-write some articles, but changing my real name to something for the sake of modernism or style, is something I will never accept.  

Chủ đề 37: Food

  • What food do you like eating?

  • What sorts of food do you like eating most? [Why?]
  • Answer:  I prefer homemade food and a fan of my mother's recipe. She is an amazing cook and I always enjoy her cooking. Whenever we go to a restaurant, we like to order Chinese menus. Apart from that, I like buttered popcorn, pizza, Indian Masala dosa, Mexican Tacos, doughnuts and sandwich - a mixture of many foreign food items actually.
  • Is there any food that you don’t like?

  • Who normally does the cooking in your home?
  • Answer:  My mother does the cooking in our house and as I have said, she is a magnificent cook. I often compliment her and inspire her to start a restaurant in the city and she always laughs hearing this. Sometimes, my elder sister Emma assists my mother in the kitchen. I, on the contrary, in charge of the grocery and daily shopping.
  • What food is popular where you live?
  • Is fast food popular in your country?

  • Do you watch cookery programmes on TV? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer:  Not much, I would say. I am not a big fan of TV programmes and mostly watch movies on my laptop. Once in a while, I watch programmes related to travel and cooking and 'Hell's Kitchen', 'Iron Chef' and 30 'Minute Meals' are my favourite. 

  • In general, do you prefer eating out or eating at home? [Why?]
  • Answer:  I like to eat at home. Homemade food has better food value and offers a wide range of choices. It is more hygienic and less expensive. However, we like to eat at a restaurant whenever we have special occasions to celebrate. As dining out in a restaurant offers my mom plenty of time to socialise rather than getting stuck in the kitchen, my father and I often insist her to go to an eatery on occasions like wedding anniversaries and birthdays.

Chủ đề 38: Birthday - Gift

  • How are birthdays usually celebrated in your country?

  • What gifts do people receive on their birthdays in your country?

  • When did you last receive a gift? [What was it?]

  • Answer:  Well, that's an interesting question and it reminds me of a gift that a close friend of mine gave me a few weeks ago. Maria went to Italy last November to visit her grandparents and after she returned, she gave me a perfume made in Italy. 'Gucci Premiere Eau De Parfum' that she gave me was expensive and I really appreciate her gift.

  • Do you ever take a gift when you visit someone in their home? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer:  Yes, I most often buy a gift on such an occasion. I do it as it is a broadly followed convention in our country, and the idea of giving a host some sort of gifts is exciting, especially when the host loves the gift. Besides, it's a token of appreciation and a good gesture as a guest.

  • Do you enjoy looking for gifts for people? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer: Yes, most of the time I love to browse different shops to find a suitable gift for someone I care for. Finding a suitable gift idea and then getting the item can be time-consuming, but it represents our care and love for the person we are presenting the gift. If the person likes the present, the time we spend to find it worths every second of it.
  • Do people eat special food on their birthdays in your country?
  • Which birthday is most important in your culture?

  • When do people give gifts or presents in your country?

  • Answer:  I often experiment with my camera and mobile phone camera and that's why I like to take a wide range of photos that include nature, people, gift items, sky, river, flower and so on.
  • However, I am inclined to take photos of people. Some of the best photos that I took were taken in unknown places where people posed for my camera. Their genuine smile, sad expression and sometimes bewilderment make the photograph worth cherishing
  • Would you prefer to buy a postcard or take a photograph of a new place?

  • What do you do with the photos you take?
  • Answer: After I take around 20-30 photographs in my camera or my mobile phone, I connect it to my laptop and sort out the best clicks. Then I name those phones according to the theme and prepare those to upload to my Flickr account. Flickr is a great photo storing and sharing website owned by Yahoo! and it offers enormous storage space. Sometimes, I share a few pictures with my friends on Facebook and Instagram. I usually print a photo if I want to gift it to someone or frame it.

  • When you visit other places, do you take photos or buy postcards? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer:  I used to buy postcards whenever I visited a new place with my parents in my childhood. Perhaps I did so to bring souvenirs of the places I had been to. But with the increasing use of the smartphone and cameras, we can now take our own picture and video and frame it to our digital storage. In this age of technological advancement, we are more inclined to take picture and video and then share those with friends and family rather than purchasing souvenirs, especially postcards.

  • Do you like people taking photos of you? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer:  If someone asks me firsts and I feel like being captured in a photo, I do not mind. Otherwise, I do not prefer to be in a photograph, especially with less known or unknown people. I think this is a personal choice and I am not the type of person who likes taking selfie or self-photograph now and then.

  • Answer: If I need to buy some common types of flowers, I go to a nearby floral shop that sells a good variety of flowers and flower bouquets. It offers fresh flowers and home delivery.

In fact, the majority of people used to ride bicycles to travel to and from their offices at that time. But, the motorized vehicles have become more popular these days and this trend has decreased the prevalence of bicycles. However, It's a good sign that many young people these days are using bicycles.
  • What are the advantages of cycling?

  • What are the advantages of a bicycle compared to a car? [Why?]
  • Answer: Bicycles have far more benefits than cars except for the fact that a car is faster. The most important advantage of riding a bicycle is that it keeps us healthy. Bicycles do not pollute the air and they are environment-friendly. They are cheap and requires no costly maintenances or services. While cars take larger spaces to be parked into, bicycles do not. Considering the environmental consequences, bicycles could be a great replacement for motorised vehicles in our hometown.
  • How often do you walk to places?

  • How often do you ride a bicycle? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer: Honestly speaking, I scarcely ride a bicycle these days. Busy lifestyle, faster speed of motorized vehicles and our apathy to get involved in physical activities have forced us to use a bicycle less often. Once in a while, I ride a bicycle and that's primarily to have fun and not to travel. Personally, I more often use a car than a bicycle because the former one is faster and more comfortable to ride in.

  • Do you think that bicycles are suitable for all ages? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer: Yes, I absolutely believe that bicycles are suitable for people of all age groups. Bicycles are cheap, have almost zero maintenance costs, and good for the environment and for our health. Since it doesn't take much physical labour, children, youth and senior citizens alike can ride it without any hassle. The health benefits of riding a bicycle are unparalleled and that's why people from all age groups should consider this as their primary means of transportation.

    colour ielts speaking part 1

  • Q. What’s your favourite colour? [Why?]
  • Answer: My favourite colour is pink and I guess many other girls like me also have a fascination with this colour. Pink, a delicate colour that means sweet, nice, playful, cute, romantic, charming, feminine, and tenderness. Pink is the colour of the universal love of oneself and of others. I love it more than any other colour.
  • Alternative Answer: My favourite colour is blue - the colour of the ocean and the sky. This colour is associated with depth and stability and symbolizes wisdom, trust, confidence, intelligence, faith, and heaven. From my childhood, I had been attracted to this colour and always preferred blue pairs of jeans.  I believe blue is a colour that suits me and perhaps this is one of the reasons I like it so much.

  • Q. Do you like the same colours now as you did when you were younger? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer: Yes, pink has always been my favourite colour. My father bought me a beautiful pink doll when I was only 4 years old and my parents painted my room pink in my childhood. Since then I am in love with this colour and interestingly it is still the same.
  • Alternative Answer: White and red were my favourite colours up until I turned 19. Strangely, I started realising the importance of blue colour when I started travelling extensively. I watched a movie titled ‘Blue’ and then did some extensive research on this colour. Besides, my fascination with the blue pair of jeans also enhanced my weakness in this colour.

  • Q. What can you learn about a person from the colours they like?
  • Answer: I believe the choice of colours often represents some personality traits and this tells a lot about a person. For instance, people who choose black as their favourite colour are often artistic and sensitive and those who love the green colour are often affectionate, loyal and frank. Clearly, these are generic descriptions but provides the clue to assessing different personality types that exist within a group. More scientifically speaking, the choice of colours defines someone's preference and could be used to speculate that a person's life experience and preferences.

  • Q. Do any colours have a special meaning in your culture?
  • Answer: White is considered the symbol of peace and red for violence in our culture. Interestingly, red is sometimes referred to as the colour of friendship and sacrifice which contradicts the earlier meaning of this colour! As far as I know, Green, in our country, represents nature and prosperity while yellow is the colour of sunshine and happiness. Finally, black is considered something gloomy and sad and relates to the dark past in history. However, black is often revered, by some people in our country, as the colour of intelligence and mystical world.

  • Q. What’s the most interesting part of your town/village?
  • Answer: Well, there are actually more than one interesting parts and facts that I can recall about our town and among them, the most interesting part is that the entire town is an island. You have to take a ferry or a launch or cross a bridge on a bus to reach our town. Perhaps the second most interesting fact of the city is that wind power provides all the electricity we need. If I tell about the most intriguing area of our town, it would be the north part of the town which is the hub of the town.

  • ?Q. What kind of jobs do the people in your town/village do
  • Answer: That would be tough to answer because the types of jobs people do in our town vary to a great extent.

Since it is a popular tourist destination, many locals are indirectly involved in the hotel and tourism sectors.

  • Tell me about the kind of accommodation you live in?

  • What sort of accommodation would you most like to live in?

  • Tell me about the kind of accommodation you live in

I also like the area because almost all the modern amenities we need are present in the vicinity.

  • Q. What sort of accommodation would you most like to live in?
  • Answer: Honestly speaking, I prefer a house over an apartment as a place to live in. However, due to increasing housing and accommodation demands, owning or renting a house in the city centre is really impossible. So for the time being, we are happy with the apartment we live in. But if I have a choice, I would relocate to a town and own a large house with a beautiful lawn in front of it.

Chủ đề 58: Neighbours


  • Q. How well do you know the people who live next door to you?

  • Q. How often do you see them? [Why/Why not?]

  • Q. What kinds of problem do people sometimes have with their neighbours?
  • Q. How do you think neighbours can help each other?

  • Q. How well do you know the people who live next door to you?
  • Answer: I know my neighbours very well. Mr and Mrs Patrick, who live adjacent to my house, are more than our neighbours and in fact, they are like close friends. Mr Albert, who lives across our house, is a great person and I often visit him to play chess with him. I have a few neighbours who are close family friends. Thus some of my neighbours are intimate and dear to us and we have a great relationship.

  • Q. How often do you see them? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer: I see them almost every day. Every time I go out, I see someone waving his hands at me and I do the same whenever I see them. Besides, some of our neighbours who walk in the park in the morning often exchange greetings with me. In terms of visiting each other, we go to their house, and they also visit us quite frequently - I would say at last once a week. Since our neighbours live close to us, we see them more frequently and have more conversations with them than our relatives.

  • Q. What kinds of problem do people sometimes have with their neighbours?
  • Answer: I believe the dispute with the fence and boundaries is a common issue among neighbours and that could be sometimes the reason for their animosity. Besides, lack of mutual respects, irrational behaviour, letting pets run wildly could be a few other reasons people do not have a healthy relationship with their neighbours. Sometimes jealousy can crack their bond as well.

  • Q. How do you think neighbours can help each other?
  • Answer: Neighbours are often more important than relatives in the sense that our neighbours would be on our side whenever we need their help and they share our happiness and sorrows alike. Thus a good neighbour can be helpful in a tremendous way by extending his or her supporting hands in times of distress and discomfort. They look after our property when we are away and can also become our good friends over time. To cite an example, when my grandfather became severely ill all of a sudden in the middle of a night almost six months ago, my neighbours came to our help and we could have been in great turmoil without their prompt support and assistance. Thus good neighbours are a blessing for us.

Chủ đề 59: Newspapers and magazines

  • Which magazines and newspapers do you read? [Why?]

  • What kinds of article are you most interested in? [Why?]

  • Have you ever read a newspaper or magazine in a foreign language? [When/Why?]

  • Do you think reading a newspaper or magazine in a foreign language is a good way to learn the language? [Why/Why not?]

  • Which magazines and newspapers do you read? [Why?]

  • Answer: I read the Indian Express, which is a daily newspaper, every day, and the magazine I like to read the most is “The Week”. I like reading newspapers and magazines whenever I get an opportunity in order to keep myself informed of what is happening in my part of the world as well as the rest of it. I like reading the magazine because I get to learn about the various subjects of my interest.  

  • Q. What kinds of article are you most interested in? [Why?]
  • Answer: I am into learning important tips about how to remain healthy both physically and mentally, so I read health-related articles. I am also interested in learning about the latest trends in computer technologies since I am a student of computer science, and as a result, I never like to miss any technology-related articles. But it doesn’t necessarily mean that I don’t like to read other kinds of articles such as those which talks about sports and foods.  

  • Q. Have you ever read a newspaper or magazine in a foreign language? [When/Why?]
  • Answer: I have always wanted to read and communicate in a different language(s) other than English and Hindi. But, I have found out that it’s not really easy. However, I know “Bengali” (mother tongue of a neighbouring country of India called “Bangladesh”) a little which has helped me to read and understand some “Bengali” texts on their newspapers lately. I became interested in reading Bengali newspapers after meeting a Bangladeshi girl who happens to be one of my best friends now.
  • Q. Do you think reading a newspaper or magazine in a foreign language is a good way to learn the language? [Why/Why not?]
  • Answer: Of course, I think reading a newspaper or magazine is a foreign language is an excellent method to learn the language because it helps us to understand the texts of a particular language and their meanings at our own pace and also at a time of our convenience. In fact, English is also a foreign language to me, and I have learnt it by reading English newspapers and journals in addition to following the language on radio and television

Chủ đề 60: Countryside

  • Can you tell me your full name, please?

  • What shall I call you?

  • Tell me about the countryside outside your town/city.

  • Would you like to live in the countryside or a metropolitan city in the future? [Why?]

  • Why do some people move to a city from a rural area? Do you know someone who did so?

  • Do you enjoy visiting large cities or small villages? [Why?]

  • Can you tell me your full name, please?
  • Answer: Sure! My full name is Hoang Pham. People call me by “Hoang”.

  • Q. What shall I call you?
  • Answer: Please call me “Hoang”. Thank you.

  • Q. Tell me about the countryside outside your town/city.
  • Answer: I live in Hanoi, the bustling capital city of my country. But, our countryside, at least 60-70 kilometres outside of my city, is peaceful and has a very tranquil atmosphere, surrounded by amazingly refreshing landscape. You will also get to see shades of green, covering the entire landscape, as far as your eyes can see, so much so that you will not ever want to leave!

  • Q. Would you like to live in the countryside or a metropolitan city in the future? [Why?]
  • Answer: In the future, I would want to live in the countryside mainly because I love nature, and I like to stay close to Mother Nature. Besides, I firmly believe that living in the countryside is healthier than living in the city as it would allow me to breathe fresh air and drink fresh and uncontaminated water. Finally, I love the simplistic lifestyles that people in the countryside have.

  • Q. Why do some people move to a city from a rural area? Do you know someone who did so?
  • Answer: I would assume that some people move to a city from a rural area primarily because it allows them to have better income opportunities. Besides, some people would move to a city because they become attracted to the “flashy” city life in order to enjoy life more. Finally, some people would move to a city because of better educational opportunities. For example, I know of one of my distant cousins who moved to Hanoi to attend a good technical university a few years ago.

  • . Do you enjoy visiting large cities or small villages? [Why?]Q
  • Answer: I always enjoy visiting small villages, instead of large cities, mainly because small villages in my country don’t have traffic problems. Besides, more often than not, people in the small villages are way friendlier and simpler than the people in large cities. Finally, of course, I enjoy visiting villages in my country, whether it is big or small because they are very beautiful with clear lakes and natural green.

Chủ đề 61: Laughing - Smile

  • What kinds of thing make you laugh?

  • Do you like making other people laugh? [Why/Why not?]

  • Do you think it’s important for people to laugh? [Why/Why not?]

  • Is laughing the same as feeling happy, do you think? [Why/Why not?]

  • What kinds of thing make you laugh?

  • Answer: They say that laughter is a great medicine, and I also believe it. So, I like to laugh whether my friend is cracking a joke or watching a comedy movie with my family and friends. But, what really makes me laugh the most is the funny activities of my pet cat. In fact, my cat makes so many “funny” moves to make me laugh that I even record them in my video camera.

  • Q. Do you like making other people laugh? [Why/Why not?]


  • Answer: Well, it depends on how much I actually know them, and what kind of circumstances is prevailing. But, in principle, I don’t really like to make people laugh because sometimes, the humorous act might actually offend them, since I wouldn’t really know what they have been going through, or what kind of mood they are really in.
  •  
  • Q. Do you think it’s important for people to laugh? [Why/Why not?]

  • Answer: Yes, I do think that it is important for people to laugh whenever an opportunity arrives because a good laugh almost always helps us relieve physical and mental tension and stress. Besides, laughter also helps promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain in us. Finally, laughter is important also because it brings us closer to each by remaining positive about ourselves and our lives.
  •  
  • Q. Is laughing the same as feeling happy, do you think? [Why/Why not?]

  • Answer: I do believe that we like to laugh when we are happy and that is a universally accepted expression for us- the human.
  •  
  • But, that does not mean that laughing is the same as feeling happy. In fact, people can be in pain and sad and still they are able to laugh to cheer others. Then, there also are many people in this world for whom laughter is just an “expression”. For example, we can laugh in a “party” or some other social gatherings in order to just go along with the “flow”, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that we are happy.

Chủ đề 62: Keeping in contact with people

  • How do you usually contact your friends? [Why?]

  • Do you prefer to contact different people in different ways? [Why?]

  • Do you find it easy to keep in contact with friends and family? [Why/Why not?]

  • In your country, did people in the past keep in contact in the same ways as they do today? [Why/Why not?]

  • How do you usually contact your friends? [Why?]


  • Answer: I usually contact my friends by phone or email if they are far from me because it is more convenient and easy than meeting them in person. However, if my friends live within the close proximity of where I live, I always try to meet them in person because the practice helps create a stronger bond of friendship.

  • Q. Do you prefer to contact different people in different ways? [Why?]

  • Answer: No, I don’t try to contact different people in different ways. My preferred method of contacting people, be them my friends, family members or relatives, is to call them on their phones because it helps me to convey my message and feeling in a more direct and effective manner. Of course, if there is a situation where no phone number is listed to reach, and if somebody prefers me to contact him/her in email for more formal reasons, then I don’t mind using email to contact.

  • Q. Do you find it easy to keep in contact with friends and family? [Why/Why not?]

  • Answer: With the advent of mobile phones and the internet, contacting friends and families has certainly become very, very easy. In fact, contacting with friends and family has become much more personal also these days because we can not only talk with them but also “view” them at the same time on our phones or computers, no matter whether they live next door or in another corner of the world.
  •  
  • Q. In your country, did people in the past keep in contact in the same ways as they do today? [Why/Why not?]

Answer: No, people in my country didn’t exactly keep in contact with each other in the same ways in the past as they do today. In fact, in the past and before the arrival of smartphones and the internet, people used to contact each other via postal mails and land phones. And, if there was a situation where one would need to contact the others on an urgent basis in the past, people would choose to take the help of “telegram” as well.
