IELTS Speaking Model: Countryside - Part 1

Updated on June 14, 2013


IELTS Speaking Model: Countryside - Part 1

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 ‘Countryside'

Have you ever been to the countryside?
Sure, my grandparents live in a country town so I would visit them about once a year usually around the spring festival.

Do you like living in the countryside?
I'm afraid not, although I'm fond of the fresh air, I really can't stand the bugs there. There are usually mosquitoes and flies everywhere you go and they are quite big and creepy. Also I'm not a fan of the lack of leisure activities - there is seriously nothing fun you can do in the countryside, even the internet is slower

What are the advantages and disadvantages of living in the countryside?
There are plenty of benefits such as the clean air and the people are more helpful and friendlier to their neighbors. As for the drawbacks I guess there are a ton of insects and also it's very far from the city so it's quite boring - there's nothing to for fun there.

What is the difference between the relationship of neighbours in the countryside and that in the city?
From my opinion people from the countryside are nicer to each other. They may often visit each others homes and even look after each others children. Whereas in contrast the neighbours in the city probably don't even communicate or know about each others lives. The most they may do is to greet each other in the hall way.
