Ielts Speaking Model: Accommodation - Part 1

Updated on June 14, 2013



IELTS(International English Language Testing System) is the world's leading test of English for higher education, immigration and employment. Below are some sample questions and model answers for the topic ‘Accommodation’.

Can you describe the place where you live?
Sure, I guess I should mention that I live in a small apartment which is about 80 square meters. There are 2 bedrooms, but only one bathroom so sometimes my parents and I have to fight over who gets to use the toilet first.

What do you usually do in your house/flat/room?
In fact I spend most of my time on the Internet. I don't go out much and normally I communicate with my friends online rather than meet them face to face. To be honest I'm so fond of the net that I even do 70 percent of my shopping online.

Please describe the room you live in.
Well, my room is small but quite cozy. It consists of a bed, TV, computer and a wardrobe. I usually spend most of my time on the computer cuz my favorite pastime is to chat online with my friends. My wardrobe is quite small, I'm thinking about throwing out some of my clothes or buying a bigger one.

Is there anything you don't like about the place where you live?
If I really had to say something I guess I'm not too fond of the fact that it’s too high - I live on the 14th floor so I usually have to wait for the elevator for quite a long time. Also I guess I'm not that keen on the color of the wallpaper - blue is not my color.

What kind of decorations does it have?
Well, my mother decorated the living room with a Christmas tree one year and it has been there ever since. Also on the wall there are a ton of family photos to show others what a loving family we are.

How do you think this room could be improved?
As a matter of fact a bigger TV would help - maybe a 70inch flat screen so we can watch movies at home with surround sound. In addition to that maybe another fridge would be useful since my mum always has to shove things into the refrigerator – there just isn't enough space.

What can you see when you look out the window of your room?
Well I said before that my home is on the 14th floor so the view’s fantastic. I'm able to see the cityscape and nearly everything that happens around my neighborhood. People are about the size of ants and I spend a lot of my time looking at them walk around.

How well do you know your neighbors?
To be honest I don't really know my neighbors. Like most people in the city I normally keep to myself and when I do see my neighbors I just greet them with a "hello".

In the future, what type of place would you like to live in?
Well in my opinion a big house by the beach is probably where I would like live in the future. The environment in the city isn't very fresh so living by the seaside might be better.
