Ielts Speaking Model: An important plant - Part 2

Updated on June 14, 2013


Ielts Speaking Model: An important plant - 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 important plant’

Describe an important plant in your country

You should say

What the plant is

How you know it

Why it is important

And explain how you like the plant

There are many important plants in my country but I guess I’ll talk about the apple tree. As you know there is a saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” so of course you can see how important the apple is to humans. The tree produces apples which are high in vitamin C and also quite delicious too. Every year billions of apples are eaten by people world wide so you can imagine how important they are to farmers cuz they need them for money.

Furthermore apple trees have a lot of leaves. My biology teacher says that the world needs more plants with a lot of leaves because the leaves of plants can turn carbon dioxide in oxygen and without oxygen the human race would be over – I believe this process is called photosynthesis.

In addition animals also eat apples and because this plant is tall and green it can attract many animals - some birds even make their nests on the apple tree sometimes.

As I just mentioned the apple tree is a really multifunctional plant and that is why I'm really fond of the apple tree. I even think without the apple tree the world would be a sadder place.
