Ielts Speaking Model: A Good Teacher - Part 2

Updated on June 14, 2013



Ielts Speaking Model: A Good Teacher - 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 Teacher'

Describe a good teacher you had when you were a child

You should say

Who the teacher is

What he or she taught you

How often you spoke to him or her

And explain why you think he or she is a good teacher.

Like most students I have had many terrible teachers and a few good ones but the one I’m going to talk about is my middle school science teacher, Mr. Li. He looks like a typical teacher who dresses neatly, wears very thick glasses and has messy hair however his teaching style is really different.

He is a teacher who is always polite and always has a smile on his face - although he has been my science teacher for 3 years, I have never seen him yell at any of my classmates or even raise his voice. Furthermore he would always make sure that we were wearing our safely gear correctly during science experiments and stay after class if we had any questions about the work he talked about in class - he is a teacher who cares about all his students.

His personality isn’t the only thing that makes him a good teacher. He is quite knowledgeable about science; he even memorized the whole periodic table. He isn’t just a textbook teacher; he would use activities and games in his class to make sure we know the theories and mathematical equations inside out.

In the future I hope my child would have a teacher like Mr. Li.

      Only students comprehension and analytical skills are important. Constant practice and confidence are needed for the IELTS. Review and train harder since the test fee is not that cheap. It is need to give it all.
