Updated on July 29, 2013



IELTS Speaking Model: Housework - Part 1

IELTS(International English Language Testing System) is the world's leading test of English for higher education, immigration and employment. Below are some sample questions and model answers for the topic ‘Housework'

Do people in your country do much housework? Definitely! The older generation does. People like my mum does most the housework at home. I help her sometimes but because I'm lazy I do as little as I can.

What housework do you like to do? I not really fond of any housework but I guess if I really had to choose it would have to be washing dishing. Ever since I was a baby I've been into playing with water and washing dishes is a bit similar.

Do you think children should do housework? Absolutely! It's a wonderful way to get them to be more independent which is actually a serious problem in china. Also it's a form of exercise and in my opinion kids need to do more exercise.

If a child helps do some of the family housework, how do you think this affects the child's development? I'm not too sure but if I would have to guess it may improve their independence. One problem with kids these days is that they are too reliant on they parents and it's not a good thing

Have there been any changes in the housework people do since the time when your parents were your age? I guess the major change is that people tend to use more electronic devices to help them with housework nowadays such as washing machines and vacuum cleaners. Where as in contrast people in the past generally did everything by manual labor.
