IELTS Speaking Model: Sleeping - 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 ‘Sleeping'

How many hours do you sleep everyday? Why?
To be honest I only sleep about 6 hours a day. I know it's not healthy but for some reason I can never fall asleep before 12am and I normally have to wake up at about 6am for school.

Is it necessary to sleep enough?
Definitely! If a person doesn't get get enough sleep they may fall a sleep on the job or even collapse due to fatigue. I heard that a person's judgement and coordination may also be affected.

Is taking a nap important?
Well I guess it depends. If it's for the elderly and babies then I believe it's quite important cuz they need that boost of energy from resting in the middle of the day. However for teenagers or middle aged people it isn't that important even if they don't take a nap they could function normally.

Do old people sleep a lot?
Personally speaking they sleep about the same as a young person. It appears they sleep more cuz they take naps but actually for most of them they only sleep about 5 or 6 hours at night so it works out to be around the same.

Do you think staying up late is a good thing?
Well once or twice a month isn't that bad however if its every day it may strain the body and cause all kinds of health problems. From my point of view it's not a very good idea to stay up late too often.
