A student who gave his exam in February reported the IELTS Speaking Part 1 questions as asked to him by the examiner. You can first read these questions and practice on your own. Then, you can compare your answers with the sample answers below to know what it is needed to say in order to score at least Band 7 in IELTS speaking.
What is your name?
My name is Rohit Verma.
Are you studying or working?
I am currently studying in the final year of my graduation studies. It’s a 3 years degree programme in Bachelor of Arts and I am completing it in the prestigious Delhi University.
Which is your favourite subject?
I like economics subject the most though all the subjects are quite interesting. It is because economics is the subject which deals with studying about GDP, consumerism, finance, wealth, banking etc. It is about the study of how people, in their real life, utilize resources. Since it is more practical and applicable in my life, I find this subject as the most fascinating one.
Why do you like this subject?
As said earlier, I find this subject very much close to my real life. All the principles and concepts that are taught in this subject are useful to deal with the real life financial problems as well. This is the reason I think learning this subject would be really helpful for me.
Why did you choose to study in your chosen discipline?
I chose to study Bachelor of Arts since I am quite concerned about learning arts subjects such as history, geography, economics etc. which, if I learn, would help me to clear civil services exam which is my future career goal. Other than this, I think it is quite easy for me to learn subjective courses which I like to study in my free time also. When I study these subjects, I don’t feel my studies like a burden. Rather, I enjoy learning more and more about these subjects.
