IELTS Speaking Model: Television - 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 ‘Television'

Do you like watching TV?
Sure who doesn't? I'm a fan of many television shows such as Chinese idol. I'm so keen on watching TV that if you put me in front of a TV I could stay at home for a month without going out.

What types of TV programmes do you (most) like to watch?
Well, I guess my favorite kind would have to be comedies. I enjoy a good laugh after a day of hard work. I'm also a fan of cop dramas. I'm actually pretty good at finding out who the killer is before the cops solve the crime.

Do you prefer reading a newspaper, (or reading a magazine) or watching TV?
Obviously it would have to be watching television. Reading can only allow a person to imagine what is happening and to be honest I'm not good at imagination. So for me TV is the better form of entertainment.

What types of programme do children in China like to watch?
Well, it's gotta be cartoons for sure. Many of my classmates are fond of and still watch cartoons and it's probably the first thing they do when they get home from school. I guess kids are also quite keen on cop dramas cuz there is a lot of action.

How do you feel about advertisements on TV?
Well I guess some of them could be interesting and funny however in my opinion they are normally quite annoying. When a TV program gets to the best part and then an ad break appears I sometimes feel like throwing a chair at the television.
