Ielts Speaking Model: A Singer - 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 Singer’
Describe a music group/band/singer in your country
You should say
Which person or band
Who often likes listening to their/his/her songs
What kind of music they/he/she/sing(s)
And explain why you admire them/him/her
There are many singers in my country that I’m a huge fan of but I guess my favorite one would have to be a woman called Faye Wong. She is a middle aged woman who has been famous in China for over 10 years so I have been listening to her songs since I was a Child.
She usually sings pop songs not only in Chinese but also in English. The reason why I admire her so much is because her English pronunciation is fantastic – there are many Chinese singers who try to sing in English but to be honest most of them have really bad pronunciation. Also the lyrics are really moving and the rhythm of her songs is quite catchy.
My favorite song by Faye Wong is an English song called “Eyes on Me”. It was the theme song of a very famous video game and it’s about a love story between a man and a woman but in the end they didn’t end up together – I nearly cried when I first heard this song, it’s quite moving.
Faye Wong is a singer who is nationally renowned in China and if you have the chance you could listen to her songs too.
