Ielts Speaking Model: A Childhood Game - Part 2

Updated on June 14, 2013

Ielts Speaking Model: A Childhood Game - 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 Childhood Game’

Describe a game you enjoyed when you were a child.
You should say:
what the game was
when, where and with whom you usually played it
how you played it
and explain what was special about this game.

When I was a kid I played a multitude of games but my all-time-favorite would have to be monopoly, of course it's the Chinese version. It’s a dice game for 2-8 players where players move pieces on a board. In the game you are able to invest in properties and even gamble – basically a game of chance – the higher the risk the greater the reward, of course you could lose everything as well.

I used to play this game with my middle school dorm mates. If we had time after doing our homework we would play this game secretly at night. This game takes several hours to play so sometimes we would spend a couple of days to just finish 1 game and usually the losers would have to buy lunch for the winner the next day.

This game was a great time killer and also allowed me to have great relationships with my classmates. The game involved many skills such as trading, working with money and of course a little luck is needed as well.

Monopoly is a game that is popular world wide. It is not only a game or children but also adults because it actually needs a lot of strategy. Just talking about this game brings back memories.

      Hai friend, Thank you for sharing this. I am also very interesting for playing a game like Monoply. But here (In India) it is not available.
