Speaking IELTS - Part 2 & 3 (Model notes)

PART 2
 
Describe a journey (e.g. by car, plane, boat) that you remember well. You should say:
  • Where you went (destination)
  • How you travelled (transport mode)
  • Why you went on the journey (holiday, work, to visit a friend etc.)
  • and explain why you remember this journey well (the landscape, how you spent your time e.g. chatting to an interesting stranger, watching a good movie etc.)

PART 3
 
REASONS FOR DAILY TRAVEL
 
Why do people need to travel every day? (to go to work, school, shopping, visit others etc.)
What problems can people have when they are on their daily journey, for example to work or school? (accident, traffic jam, miss a bus/train, pick-pocketed etc.)
Some people say that daily journeys like these will not be so common in the future. Do you agree or disagree? (people are increasingly working from home as everything can be done on-line these days, however children still need to be physically present at school)

BENEFITS OF INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL

What do you  think people can learn from travelling to other countries? (culture, history, geography, knowledge of food and lifestyle, habits, respect others, become open-minded, new experiences)

Can travel make a positive difference to the economy of a country? (many countries and citizens depend on income from tourists. Tourism encourages development and growth of an economy)

Do you think a society can benefit if its members have experience of travelling to other countries? (citizens will be well-informed, knowledgeable, accepting of others, open-minded, tolerant of differences in their own surroundings)

  1. Just got my cheque for $500.

    Many times people don't believe me when I tell them about how much you can earn taking paid surveys online...

    So I took a video of myself getting paid $500 for participating in paid surveys to set the record straight.
