Ielts Speaking Model: A Library - Part 2

Updated on June 14, 2013

Ielts Speaking Model: A Library - 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 Library’

Describe a library that you know.
You should say:
where it is
when you went there
what books and facilities this library has
and explain what you like or dislike about this library.

Like everyone else I have been to a multitude of libraries but I believe the most impressive one would have to be my university library. I believe it was built by a world famous architect who was into Chinese culture - I can’t remember his name. His masterpiece – this library looks like an ancient Chinese palace on the outside, on the inside it was just like an ordinary library. I believe this library got a lot of funding because it has a huge collection of limited edition books.

I often visited this library because of the atmosphere in the studying area – it was a quiet place filled with students who are studying or reading books. If I were at home I never would have the motivation to even open my books to begin studying since computer games are just too enticing.

The computer room is also one of the most prevalent places because students who didn't have a computer were able to do some research on the internet or just surf the web – some students may secretly try to play games on the computer but this library has a fantastic security system. If people try to play games on the computer an alarm would go off and security would escort the student out of the library and he or she would be banned from the library for a month.

This library is truly a wonderful place for students to read and study, I hope I could find a library like that after I go abroad.
