Tổng hợp những mẫu câu hỏi và câu trả lời trong IELTS Speaking Task 1
1.1. Have you ever been to any island?
Yes, I have! Actually, I lived on an island for 3 months back in 2016. My mother was offered to work at a resort for 2 years, so I joined them there for 3 months. Island life was quite an interesting experience!
1.2. Are there any islands in your country?
Yes, there are. There is one famous island called X, famed for its crystal clear water and white sands. I’ve heard the pagodas are very interesting to visit there, as well. I haven’t been yet, but I dream of going there for a girls getaway (when women go on a trip together) sometime in the future.
1.3. Do you want to live on an island if you have a chance?
Not really. Islands are beautiful, but I felt really isolated (separated from others) when I lived on one before. As I’m an active person, I felt there wasn’t much to do. Sure, the beach is great, but it gets boring day after day.
1.4. What do you like to do when you are on an island?
Beach of course! Behind that, I like getting to know the local culture and food. I especially enjoy drinking coconut water fresh off the palm trees and trying local fish recipes. Moreover, I enjoy getting hair braided (hairstyle) by local people.
2.1. Do you often wear makeup?
Yes, almost everyday. If I’m just bumming (relaxing) around the house, I don’t bother putting make-up on. However, I have a very professional job, so I always put on my best attire (clothes) and make-up when I go to work. If I go without make-up, I feel sloppy (messy) and unprofessional. I also like to wear make up when I go out, just so I feel more confident with my appearance.
2.2. What does wearing makeup mean to you?
To me, it’s a way of taking pride in (be proud of) my appearance. It makes me feel like the best version of myself. Furthermore, I’m artistic, so I see my face like a canvas (a picture painted with oil paints on canvas or other cloth)
2.3. Do you give makeup as a gift?
Sometimes, but I’m always hesitant, as I don’t always know the right shade of make-up to buy for another person. If someone requests make-up, I would certainly buy it for them. However, I would feel too nervous to pick it out myself, so I would opt for buying a gift card instead.
2.4. What do you think when you see a man wearing makeup?
Nothing in particular. Everyone has the right to express themselves, so who am I to judge? I wouldn’t even blink an eye if a guy walked by me wearing make-up. Actually, I often see it in my city, so I’m quite used to it.
3.1. Do you like perfume?
Yes, I do! As I’m an athlete who sweats a lot, I tend to (usually) have a strong odor. Because of this. I buy perfume in case I don’t have time to take a shower before I go out.
3.2. Do you use perfume?
Everyday! I always use it after my soccer practice as well as before dates with my boyfriend. It makes me feel a lot more feminine and confident.
3.3. How much money do you spend on perfume?
Although I don’t earn a great salary, I budget (plan an amount of money to be spent) to be able to buy a new bottle of Chanel perfume every few months. make-up, I feel sloppy (messy) and unprofessional. I also like to wear make up when I go out, just so I feel more confident with my appearance.
3.4. Have you ever given perfume as a gift?
Hmm let me think. Actually, I haven’t. I feel nervous to choose a scent for someone in case they don’t like it, so I would rather (give them a gift card to a department store so they can choose their own.
3.5. Would you ever give perfume as a gift?
Although I don’t prefer it, I would definitely give it as a gift. However, I would make sure that I knew the brand or scent that they like before I buy it. I know that perfume is a sensitive gift to give someone!
4.1. What’s the most popular means of transportation in your hometown? Without any doubt
I would say motorbikes. Almost everyone travels by motorbike. The reason why motorbike is so popular I think is due to their reasonable price and convenience. They also extremely varied in terms of size, color and quality, thus a wide variety of choices is available for everyone.
- Without any doubt/There is no doubt that (expression) a phrase expressing certainty or agreement; yes
- A wide variety of (collocation) a number or range of things of the same general class that is distinct in character or quality.
4.2. How often do you take buses?
Almost every day. Since my house is so far away from my university, it’s impossible for me to travel by motorbike. In addition, the air is heavily polluted by exhaust fumes and traffic jams always take place, especially during peak hours. Thus, I’d prefer to take the bus, to save time, save gasoline and causing less pollution.
- Exhaust fumes (n) waste gasses or air expelled from an engine, turbine, or another machine in the course of its operation.
- Traffic jam (n) a line or lines of stationary or very slow-moving traffic, caused by roadworks, an accident, or heavy congestion.
- Peak hours/Rush hours (n) the busiest hours
4.3. Can you compare the advantages of planes and trains?
Planes and trains regularly depart and arrive on time. Plus, there are many convenient facilities catering particularly to certain groups of passengers. However, traveling by plane is clearly time-saving and enjoyable in terms of on-board services like meals or comfortable seats, while traveling by train offers you a chance to see the world outside, admire the views from their seats. It’s totally a great experience for most train-travelers.
- On-board services (n) provided on or within a vehicle
- Cater (v) provide with what is needed or required
4.4. Is driving to work popular in your country?
Although cars themselves and gasoline are expensive, a lot of people prefer driving, possibly because driving is more comfortable in such weather, with such polluted and noisy surroundings.
4.5. Do you think people will drive more in the future?
If you’re talking about India, no, I don’t think it’s possible, even in the future. Cars and gasoline are becoming unaffordable for many people these days. Plus, the transport infrastructure in various regions in India is not appropriate for cars.
- Transport infrastructure (n) the framework that supports our transport system
4.6. Would you ride bikes to work in the future?
Definitely not. Riding a bike means you’re exposing yourself to the unpredictable weatherand to air pollution. What is worse, I’m afraid the main streets or the highway are too dangerous for cyclists, as cars, motorbikes and buses will travel at a very high speed. Thus I’d rather ride a motorbike or take the bus instead.
- Unpredictable weather (n) to not able to be predicted; changeable
4.7. What will become the most popular means of transport in your country?
I think buses will take the lead. You can travel the distance without much worries about ticket price or rainy weather outside. Also new buses now offer better services like comfortable seats for the elderly or good air conditioning systems.
- To take the lead (v) to start winning a race or competition
4.8. Do you prefer public transport or private transport ?
I think I’d prefer public transport. It’s much more inexpensive and because it can contain a large number of people, it helps ease the intensity of traffic jams during peak hours and reduce the greenhouse gas emissions caused by vehicles. Private transportation is more costly in terms of fees, taxes and gasoline.
- Intensity (n) of extreme force, degree, or strength
- Greenhouse gas emissions (np) the emission into the earth’s atmosphere of any of various gases, especially carbon dioxide, that contribute to the greenhouse effect
