- What kinds of things are boring to you?
- What do you do when you feel bored?
- What was the most boring thing you did when you were young?
- Do you think school is boring?
What kinds of things are boring to you?
Listening to politicians, Being stuck in traffic, and Standing in line are some of the most boring things to me. We all love to see the bright side of life, but let’s be honest, some things in life aren’t as fun as others.
What do you do when you feel bored?
It’s actually a fact of my life that whenever I get a little bit of downtime, I attempt to distract myself by thinking about nicer, more enjoyable things. My favourite way to pass the time when I’m bored is to fantasize about holidays and my future career.
What was the most boring thing you did when you were young?
The most boring thing I’ve ever done, and most likely will do again, is sitting in a doctor’s office waiting for them to call your name. They appear to call everyone except you, so you’re left watching and waiting.
Do you think school is boring?
School is boring only to those who haven’t made the choice to engage. Look, school is not there to provide you with entertainment. You are there to get an education. It is in fact a two-way street. In order to get something out of school, you have to proactively be engaged in the business of learning.
Topic #2 – Advertisements
Following are the probable set of IELTS Speaking part – 1 questions that may be asked around Advertisements:
- Are you interested in watching TV advertisements or internet advertisements?
- What kinds of advertisements do you dislike?
- Do you share advertisements with others?
- Do you want to work in advertising in the future?
Are you interested in watching TV advertisements or internet advertisements?
I enjoy watching many ads – and I think lots of people do, so long as they are tastefully made and especially if they are relevant to the person to whom they are being served.
What kinds of advertisements do you dislike?
It’s not that all ads stink. Online pop-ups, Fraudulent ads, and Full-page newspaper ads are some of the advertisements I particularly dislike.
Do you share advertisements with others?
Not always! Most of the time I share job recruitment advertisements with people in my circle. I do remember once I shared a lady’s handbag advert with my Mom, and she actually bought the product afterwords.
Do you want to work in advertising in the future?
I would love to work in Marketing and advertising in the future. Advertising is a burgeoning career path for anyone who has chosen it, so growth and climbing through the ranks is quite an obvious feature of working in the field.
Topic #3 – Films/Cinema
Following are the probable set of IELTS Speaking part – 1 questions that may be asked around Films/Cinema:
- Do you like to watch films?
- Do you prefer foreign films or Indian films?
- How often do you go to the cinema to watch a movie?
- Do Indian people like to go to the cinema to watch a film?
Do you like to watch films?
I am a huge fan of Adventure and Sci-Fi movies. I live in India, a country that is obsessed with two things – Cricket and Bollywood. Every other person you see or meet is a movie lover and religiously follows one film star or the other.
Do you prefer foreign films or Indian films?
I enjoy both Indian and foreign movies. I believe that Bollywood keeps us tied to our culture and roots, while international films educate us about other civilizations like the Greeks and Romans. Both are excellent sources of knowledge and amusement.
How often do you go to the cinema to watch a movie?
I go to the cinema almost every weekend. It’s my perfect pass time. The big screen, the sound system, and recliners – all make for a couple of hours of escape from life. I become completely engrossed in the story and forget about everything else.
Do Indian people like to go to the cinema to watch a film?
Yes, Indians enjoy going to the theatres to watch movies. It is clear from the growing number of multiplexes that are opening in every city and are almost always jam-packed.
