Ielts Speaking Model: A Polite Person - Part 2

Updated on June 15, 2013

Ielts Speaking Model: A Polite Person - 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 Polite Person’

Describe a polite person you know

You should say

Who the person is

How you know the person

What the person looks like

And explain why you think the person is polite

I know many people but sadly not many of them are polite. I’d like to talk about my middle school science teacher, Mr Wang. He looks like a typical teacher who dresses neatly, wears very thick glasses and has messy hair. When people see him for the first time they usually have the impression that he gets angry easily and is quite mean. However, looks can be deceiving.

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. Most teachers might talk to parents in a nice manner but treat students really poorly but not him. He treats us really well and sometimes even plays basketball with us.

I guess the reason he is polite is because he has lived over 10 years in Japan and has been influenced by some of there culture or it may be because he is still only a low level teacher. Some people change once they get power – like my Uncle. He used to be a nice person until he became a big boss of company.

Mr Wang is someone I look up to because he has a good personality and is polite. I hope to be like him one day.
