Ielts Speaking Model: A Good Parent - Part 2

Updated on June 14, 2013


Ielts Speaking Model: A Good Parent - 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 Good Parent’

Describe a good parent you know.
You should say:
who the parent is
how you know the parent
what the parent looks like
and explain why you think the parent is good.

In this world there are a multitude of different types of relationships parents choose to have with there kids. Some parents choose to be the servants of there children, willing to do anything for them. Others would rather dominate there children, meaning they would try their best for their children to comply with them. However the good parent I’m going to talk about is my uncle who chose to be his child’s friend.

My uncle is a tall man who has a gentle looking face. He is a little bald and has a good figure, not too thin and not too chubby.

He has an extremely good relationship with my cousin, his son. They are able to interact freely and even share secrets. You know, communication is quite important for family members to maintain a good relationship.

I even think my uncle works harder than most parents. Because he is divorced, he tries extra hard to play the role of both the mother and the father. He has to do all of the parenting such as cook my cousin’s meals, take him to school AND bring home the bacon at the same time - Seriously a super dad.

My uncle is a role model for parents everywhere; I wish my father was more like him!
