IELTS Speaking Part 1
1. Do you Think it’s Important to be on time?
Yeah, I think it definitely is, because it’s basic manners to be on time for things. You know, I think you’d agree it’s pretty rude to keep people waiting, and so it kind of leaves a bad impression on people.
2. How do you Feel When others areLate?
Well I guess it kind of depends, because I mean, if there’s a good reason for being late, you know, like getting stuck in traffic, then I will not really mind that much. But you know, if the person does not really have any excuse and it’s simply because they could not be bothered to arrive on time, then I suppose I might feel a bit annoyed.
3. Are you, Yourself, Late very Often?
Yeah, I am. And I know it’s a bad habit, but for some reason, no matter how hard I try, I always seem to end up being late for things !
No, I would not say I am. You know, most of the time I’m pretty good with being on time for things, because I always make a quite big effort not to be late.
4. How do you Feel When you are Late?
I feel pretty bad, especially if I’ve kept the other person waiting for a long time. So if I know I’m gonna be late, I will always try to let the person know in advance, you know, like send them a text message or something, so at least they know when to expect me.
5. How do you Think you could be on time Improve and More Often?
I guess the best thing to do would be to always allow lots of time to get anywhere. So for example, if it normally takes me, say, half an hour to get to the city centre, then I should probably leave home about an hour before I need to get there.
6. Do you Wear a Watch?
Yeah I do – you can see it right here !
No I do not, because I do not think it’s really necessary to wear a watch anymore. You know, if I wanna know the time, I’ll just look on my mobile !
7. When does time SEEM to move fast, and When does it SEEM to move
Well, I think most people would agree that time moves fast when you’re having fun. And a prime example would be when playing computer games, cos I mean, whenever I play online with my friends, it always seems that only an hour or two has passed, but in actual fact, it’s probably been four or five hours !
And time normally goes slowly when you’re bored or simply just not enjoying yourself. For example, I remember at school, some of my classes felt like they would never end, when in fact they were just, like, 45 minutes long !
8. If you could go back in time, What Would you do Differently?
That’s a good question. What would I do differently? Um ………., ok well first of all, if I could go back in time, I would definitely spend more time practicing the piano, because you know, I never really practiced that much when I was younger, and I kind of regret it now, because I’d love to be able to play the piano well
