Ielts Speaking Model: A Show or Performance - Part 2

Ielts Speaking Model: A Show or Performance - 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 Show or Performance’

Describe a show or performance that you enjoyed watching

You should say

What kind of performance it was

When and where you saw it

Who you saw it with

Who the performers were

And explain why you attended this performance

I have seen many performances but I guess magic shows would have to be my all time favorite. Last week I went to see a magic show by a not-so-famous magician with my girlfriend - he didn't even have an attractive assistant. Actually I'm a little bit of a magician myself and often go to shows like this one to see new tricks and try to learn them or at least figure out how it's done.

Anyway most of the tricks he performed where really old fashioned such as cutting a person in half or the flying daggers with eyes blindfolded. However there was one trick that really amazed me. It was actually a trick that looked simple but I haven't seen before. The magician got a very long piece of string, about 2 meters long and cut it in half. Then tied a very strange knot. After that he asked 2 people from the audience to pull on both sides of the rope and it turned into one piece of string again. There was no way he swapped the string so I'm still dazzled.

Although the rest of the show was lame, I would definitely watch his show again to figure out how that trick is done.
