IELTS Speaking Model: Leisure - Part 1

Updated on June 14, 2013


IELTS Speaking Model: Leisure - 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 ‘Leisure (relaxing)'

When do you have free time?
Sadly, only during the holidays. I'm like a studying machine and all I do is either homework or reading from a textbook. My parents really push me quite hard so I can only have a few days break during the summer and winter holidays.

How do you like to relax?
Well, usually I read novels. My parents are kinda strict and if I play computer games or go out with my friends they may complain so the only thing left to do is to read.

Do you have enough time for your hobby?
I wish I did! Most of time I'm either at home or at school and my hobby is playing tennis. I only have the chance to play tennis with my friends about once a month - my parents are quite strict.

What can people do to find more time for relaxing?
Well, one way I don't really recommend is to sleep less. When people aren't sleeping they have more time to do other things. Also I guess people could study or work less so they they have more time to do things they are fond of.

Do you prefer to do things in a family group or a group of friends?
In fact I prefer to go out with my parents, especially my mother cuz she will buy me things that I want such as clothes. She also takes me to pricey restaurants. Going out with my friends is also pretty fun but nothing compares with doing stuff with my mum.

Do you think it's important to spend your leisure time with your family?
Definitely! When you are socializing with your family you're bonding. This kind of relationship in my opinion is the most important for a person cuz your friends can change however family is forever so maintaining a good relationship with your family is extremely important.
