Ielts Speaking Model: A Science Subject - Part 2
A Science Subject
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 Science Subject’
Describe a science subject that you studied in high school
You should say:
the name of the subject
what you did in this class
how the teacher taught it
and explain how you felt about this subject / this class.
It has been a while since I was at high school but I guess the most memorable science subject would have to be biology. Out of the 3 science subjects it was the most fascinating due to the fact that it was about the study of life and I have always been an inquisitive child – I really like to know how things work or why things happen.
I was a huge fan of this class due to the fact that the class wasn't just learning about theories and doing math calculations like chemistry and physics. We also were able to do meaningful experiments such as dissecting a cow’s eye or a sheep’s brain.
I guess my teacher was also one of the mean reasons I was fond of Biology. He always taught in an interesting way with funny jokes and interesting examples. He wasn't like my history teacher, who was a textbook teacher – he only read from the textbook while teaching and told us to memorize names and dates.
Biology was my favorite class in high school and I would like to continue my further studies in biology when I go abroad.
