IELTS Speaking Part 1


1. Do you work or are you a student?
2. Is that a popular subject in your country?
3. What are the most popular subjects in China?
4. Why did you choose that university?
5. What are your favourite classes/ courses/ subjects at university?


I’m currently a first year student at Ningbo university. My mayor is education which I believe is a very meaningful subject. In the future I hope to give back to society by being a responsible high school teacher.

Actually I believe it is quite popular, but only for girls. Since the job most people will apply for after studying education is teaching – girls in China tend to favor this career cuz it’s stable.

In my opinion business is probably the first choice for most people. Nearly everyone wants to be rich so they think that majoring in business would help them  chieve this goal. I guess the second most prevalent subject would be computing. You know many students like to play computer games so there is no doubt that people are into that subject.

To be honest the main reason is because my score for the college entrance exam was not high enough to go to a better uni. Another factor I should mention is because Ningbo is my hometown and the uni is it’s quite close to now home – my parents might miss me if they don’t see me for a long period of time.

Children psychology is my all time favorite subject. As I have mentioned before, I would like to be a teacher and this subject teaches us how children think. It’s not only meaningful but also very interesting. I want to be a mother one day so I think its important to know why children do certain things or what not to say to children.
