Ielts Speaking Model: A Shopping Street - Part 2

Updated on June 14, 2013


Ielts Speaking Model: A Shopping Street - 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 Shopping Street’

Describe a street where you like to go shopping

You should say

Where it is

What you buy there

How often you go there

And explain why you like go to the street for shopping

There are quite a few shopping streets I frequently visit in my hometown but I guess I’ll talk about Yaohang Rd. It’s actually quite a unique place for shopping. On one side of the street are big department stores and supermarkets on the other side are small shops and food stands.

As you know I’m as student so I usually only visit the side of the street with food and small shops since the clothing stores there are normally cheaper – even though they are knock offs. I once bought a pair for fake Nike shoes there for only 50Yuan – what a bargain! The food from the snack stalls also aren’t too bad but I try not to eat there cuz the food may be a little dirty.

There is only one reason why I would visit the other side of the street and that is because there is a cinema there. I’m a huge movie buff and would watch all the good movies that come out – luckily I’m a student so my classmates and I can get a 50 percent discount which is the student price.

When I get back too my hometown the first thing I’m gonna do is go to this street cuz I need to buy new clothes for summer and I hear there is also a new movie out.
