Speaking IELTS - Part 2 & 3 (Model notes)


Describe a film you have seen that made an impression on you.
You should say:
  • What it was about (plot)
  • How popular it was (blockbuster, low ratings, independent film)
  • What you thought about the actors (performed well, convincing)
  • and explain why it made an impression on you (storyline, acting, settling, special effect etc.)



What kinds of entertainment are popular in your country?
(cinema, theatre, clubs, restaurants, caf├ęs, watching sports, paintball etc.)

Could you compare types of entertainment children like and adults like?
(children like fun activities where they are physically involved, activities that involve colour, music and other children)

Why is entertainment important in people’s lives?
(need time to relax and break-away from daily routine, time to forget their problems for a while)


Why do you think people are interested in the private lives of famous actors?
(gossip, believe their lives are better and more exciting than their own, time pass)

In your own opinion, is the amount of money earned by film stars justified?
(they earn too much for pretending to be other people, important life-saving jobs are not paid as much)

What would it be like to be a famous actor?
(receive a lot of attention but under pressure to maintain a public image, have money, power and influence but no private life)


How much influences does American culture have in your country?
(youngsters copy the language, dress style and music they find in Hollywood films and American music)

What are Hollywood films like in comparison with films produced in your country?
(Hollywood has a huge budget, professional actors, special effects and a great international audience so the films produced locally can’t be compared)

How can a country avoid being dominated by a foreign culture?
(they need to be isolated like North Korea, have no contact with the outside world, restrict movement of people)
