Ielts Speaking Model: A Book - Part 2

Updated on June 14, 2013


Ielts Speaking Model: A Book - Part 2

IELTS(International English Language Testing System) is the world's leading test of English for higher education, immigration and employment. Below is a sample question and model answer for the topic ‘A Book’

Describe a book you enjoyed reading

You should say

What the book was

What the book was about

Who wrote it

Why you read it

And explain why you liked this book

I have read many books as a child but I guess that my favorite book would have to be Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roal Dhaol. I read this book when I was in high school cuz my English teacher was a huge Roal Dhaol fan and force the whole class to read it. At first I wasn’t really into this book but by the end I loved it.

It was about a boy who was quite poor and by chance he won the opportunity to be the contestant to be the owner of Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. Of course in the end he won the competition. This book has taught me a lot, especially to be an honest person and have a good personality and that is the only reason why Charlie won. Not because he was clever or talented but because he was an honest, down to earth guy.

I am a huge fan of this book because when I was a kid I really liked the idea of owning a Chocolate Factory - it was also the first English book I have read. Just talking about this book brings back memories. Maybe I would read it again when I have the time.
