Do people in your country wear sunglasses?

Absolutely. But since the UK has a rainy climate, they aren’t as needed as in other places. Still, people like to wear them as a fashion statement or as an accessory to their outfit.

Do you like to wear sunglasses?

Why yes of course, especially when I feel that I look tired. Moreover, I like that they can tie a whole outfit together (make the outfit look better). Moreover, when I drive on sunny days, sunglasses are a must.

Do you often wear sunglasses?

Not too often actually because of the climate here. I’d say I have to wear them a couple times a month on the rare occasion that the sun comes out. As I mentioned before, I feel I need them most when I drive on sunny days or when I go on holiday to the beach.

IELTS Speaking Interview

Where do you buy sunglasses?

I tend not to splurge on (spend a lot of money; luxury) sunglasses since I have the tendency to lose or break them, so I usually just buy knock-off (copy) brands from street vendors. I’ve bought and lost several pairs of knock-off Ray Bans which were just fine for me. I feel that the shape of them suits my round face shape.

What do you prefer, tea or coffee?

I’m definitely more of a tea person. However, I need a cup or two of coffee to shift myself into gear (to get started) in the morning. After this, I always stick with (choose) tea. Coffee tends to make me feel a bit anxious, whereas tea gives me a natural, energized feeling. Moreover, tea has more health benefits for me, especially since I’m prone to (easily get) colds and coughs.

What do you usually prepare for your guests, tea or coffee?

Definitely tea. As I don’t have a coffee-maker or French press, I wouldn’t want to serve instant coffee, so I always heat up water in my kettle and serve some tea, either in bags or fresh. Since I have quite a collection of different teas, I feel prouder to share this with my guests.

When was the last time you drank coffee or tea?

Just before this exam actually! I drank 2 cups of green tea this morning with my breakfast. As I was a tad nervous, I decided not to drink coffee this morning, as it sometimes causes me to feel jittery (nervous and shaking).

Describe a time when you were stuck in a traffic jam.

You should say:

– When and where it happened?

– How long you were in the traffic jam?

– What you did while waiting?

And explain how you felt when you were in that traffic jam.


Well, traffic jam is quite a common scene, especially in big cities where people waste a lot of time in these jams. 

I am going to talk about one such experience that I lately had where I was stuck in a jam for a long time. Actually, my friend and I planned a weekend. We decided to go to Ludhiana on the weekend and have a lot of fun. We planned to go shopping, watch a movie in the cinema and later have a meal in a restaurant and come back home.

I was pretty excited about the same, and we were planned to travel by bus. The next morning, when I reached the bus stop, I received a phone call from my friend who cancelled the program for some reason, but I decided to travel alone. I vividly remember it was a pretty hot day, and I boarded a non-air condition bus. It was fully packed, and Somehow, I managed to get a seat, but the journey was quite uncomfortable. It had been hardly 30 minutes, and the bus suddenly stopped. 

IELTS Speaking Interview

There was a huge jam, and there was a long cue of vehicles ahead. The bus driver stopped the engine and went out to enquire. It was really difficult to spend the time waiting in this bus. So I decided to play a game on my phone or listen to music. I hardly spend 15-20 minutes and my mobile battery got flat. In the meantime, we got to know that the jam is because of a road accident and it may take a long time before the police let the vehicles to move. 

It was the height of my patience because I couldn’t wait anymore and I was too much irritated because of the constant honking and toxic fumes of other vehicles, and that’s a reason why I decided to get off the bus and board a bus going the other direction. 

Finally, after wasting around four hours, I was back home, and I was really frustrated because a traffic jam completely ruined my weekend.

Are traffic jams common in Indian cities?

Yes, India has a huge population, and traffic jams are not uncommon, especially in big cities like Delhi, Bombay, Chennai, and Kolkatta. Moreover, there is also a bad culture of parking cars on the roads in India, which reduces available space for parking and leads to jams.

Why are cities today facing serious traffic issues?

I think the main reason for the serious traffic issues is increasing urbanisation. More and more people are moving to cities for a better quality of life, but this leads to more cars than roads can handle. Moreover, some older cities have narrow roads as they were not designed, keeping today’s use of cars in minds. These narrow roads restrict traffic flow and lead to jams.

IELTS Speaking Interview

What can be done to improve traffic conditions in cities?

First, I think the government should promote the use of public transportation by making it more comfortable and faster. For example, the traffic conditions in Delhi have improved considerably after the launch of the Delhi Metro. Also, the roads need to be widened wherever possible to accommodate more cars.

Can developing public transport help resolve traffic issues in cities?

I think public transportation can resolve traffic issues but if it is fast and comfortable. Delhi had local trains for a long time, and people did not prefer them because they were slow. However, the construction of the Delhi Metro, which is quite fast and comfortable, made a real dent in traffic.
