Ielts Speaking Model: A Gift - 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 Gift’


Describe a gift you gave to someone

You should say

What the gift was

Who you gave it to

Why you gave it

And explain whether this person liked the gift or not


Well I have given presents to many people for all kinds of reasons but I guess I'll talk about my best friend's last birthday present. Last month was my best friend, Tina's birthday and a few weeks before that she accidentally lost her iPhone 4S on the bus. As a result she was quite upset - her parents were really angry as well and told her they wouldn't buy her a new one.

Luckily for her I won the school singing competition and the prize was a brand new black iPhone 5. I already had one so I gave it to her at her birthday party. I still remember her face light up when she saw the iPhone box. She actually thought I was playing a joke on her and that I just gave her an empty box. However when she saw the phone inside she seriously cried and hugged me so hard I wasn't able to breathe.

This was probably the most pricey gift I have given to anyone in my life but I believe it was worth it. After all, you can't buy friendship.
