Ielts Speaking Model: A Seaside Place - Part 2

Updated on June 14, 2013


Ielts Speaking Model: A Seaside Place - 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 Seaside Place’

Describe a seaside place you like to visit
You should say
Where it is
What you like about it
What you do there
Who you go there with
And explain why you like to visit it

There are many places near the sea but none can compare with the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, Australia. It’s a place I have been to many times but every time I go there it still amazes me.

As you may know the Great Barrier Reef is one of the 7 wonders of the world and it really lives up to its name. The water is crystal clear without any rubbish and the view is just spectacular. My city is a coastal city called Ningbo and the beaches there are a little dirty and sometimes you can see people washing their clothes with sea water – not a wonderful site to see.

Every time I would go there with my friends and the first thing we would do is to build a huge sand castle. After that we would feel really hot and sweaty so obviously we would cool ourselves down in the water. We usually wouldn’t swim too far from the shore because we’re afraid the coast guard couldn’t see us and we might get eaten by sharks. Although some people say “sharks are more scared of us than we’re scared of them” I’m pretty sure those people are wrong

The Great Barrier Reef is a great place to visit and I look forward to visiting that place again in the near future.

      A high score represents a high level of proficiency; a low score shows a lower level.IELTS is an exam designed for people of any level to take. It gives a result which does not show a pass/fail according to a certain standard, but rather shows your current level in different areas
