IELTS speaking part 1 sample questions and answers:
How many members are there in your family?
There are 4 members in my family. I, mom, dad and one sweet younger sister.
My father is a government employee. He has been doing his job for 20 years. He is a hard worker and honest person. My mother is a housewife with a very compassionate heart and workaholic mind. My sister is studying in 12th standard.
Do your grandparents live with you?
No, I wish they would live with me. However, they prefer noise free and serene environment of village. So, they live in my hometown. But I visit them whenever I get time in the vacation. Sometimes they come to our place to give us some time. We enjoy their company a lot especially my grandfather.
Do your family members get along with each other?
Yes, definitely. We are very much close to each other. We care for each other. There is a respect for elders and love for Youngers in my family. My father always respects my grandfather and mother and so do I.
We are emotionally attached to each other. There is a strong sense of responsibility in my family. I feel privileged to have such a family.
Do you think family’s support is important for getting ahead in life?
Certainly, family support is the first thing required in getting ahead in life. Family helps in taking good decision either for study or business. It also fulfills the financial requirements. The most important thing which family gives us the moral support. We never get tired of fighting the world if our family is in support.
Who is the closest to you among your family members?
Well, all members of my family are close to my heart. But I feel my mom has same mindset and personality as I. in that sense I am having more conversation and spending more time with my mom as compared to any other members of my family.
Do you think living in a joint family is better than living in a nuclear family?
Of course, living in joint families is far better than living in a nuclear family. There are numerous reasons. Usually there is more emotional support in a joint family. We can share our problems with other family members. By that way we can feel relaxed, and our problems will also get sorted out.
What are the advantages of living in a nuclear family?
Well according to me, one should not live in a nuclear family unless and until some circumstances arise. But that’s what I believe. There are myriad people who are in favor of living in a nuclear family.
There are some benefits of living in a nuclear family. First of which is a privacy. Some people give utmost importance to privacy specifically the people of today’s generation. One more benefit we can enlist here is the less conflict between members. As there are fewer members in nuclear family. The chances of dispute are also less.
Do you think families in the past were closer than nowadays?
It is actually debatable whether the families in the past were closer or todays. As far as I believe families in the past were closer than today’s families. The very first reason I see is the overuse of technology in today’s generation.
Nowadays, every family member is bust in his mobile. He does not get time even to look from his mobile. It is actually an addiction. In the past mobiles were not there so families had plenty of times together. They talked frequently.
