IELTS Speaking Test in India – Part 1

The following questions were asked in an IELTS Speaking test recently held in India.

Examiner: What do you do?

Candidate: I am a teacher. I teach physics at the government higher secondary school in Palakkad.

Examiner: Were you playing outdoors as a child?

Candidate: Yes, I was. I used to spend a great deal of time outdoors. I have an elder brother and a younger sister. As soon as we got home from school, we would rush to the backyard. We used to make our own amusements. I still miss those days.

Examiner: What games were you playing then?

Candidate: I used to play badminton with my siblings. We had a swing in the garden and I used to spend a lot of time on it. When I was a child I lived in a village. There were several ponds in my village. On Sundays I would go swimming with my brother and cousins. Sometimes we played hide and seek.

Examiner: Do you allow your children to play outside now?

Candidate: Yes, I do. We now live in a city. There is a nice park opposite my home. On weekends, I take my kids there and let them play. Our home is built on a small lot and it doesn’t have a play area. So, my kids can play outside only when we take them to a park or to our native place.
