Ielts Speaking Model: An Interesting Historical Event - 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 ‘An Interesting Historical Event’


Describe an interesting event in history you know

You should say

Who the event was

When and where it occurred

Who was leading the event

How you know about it

And explain why you think it was interesting


As you know China has a 5000 year history so there are many historical events that have occurred but I guess I would talk about the establishment of the People’s Republic of China.

You know the current government of China is still quite young. On October the 1st 1949, Chairman Mao who was the first chairman of China announced to the world that China was changing its government and that is the government we know today. In Chinese we call this “The New China”

Because of this event there is a 1 week public holiday every year to celebrate national day which is why I’m quite fond of this event. In fact every Chinese person knows about this event because we are taught this in our history classes. In fact most I’m quite a big fan of history – especially modern history such as World War 1 and 2. I love my country and I believe a patriot should know how things began and that is why I chose to talk about this.

And yeah that’s sums up a historical event.
