Ielts Speaking Model: Trees - Part 1
Ielts Speaking Model: Patience - 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 ‘Trees (forests)'
Do you like going into the forests?
Absolutely! I’m a huge fan of going to going to the forest. The environment there is just superb. Every now and them I would visit a forest just because there isn’t that much pollution so I could smell the fresh air. Also the animals there are also quite cute – especially some colourful birds.
Do you think we should protect the forests?
In my opinion people should do what they can to protect the forest and other kinds of woodlands. As you know global warming is becoming a huge problem these days and trees are the only thing that can slow it down or even stop it. Further more without trees many animals would lose their homes and may even become extinct.
Would you like to live in (near) the forests?
I’m afraid not. To be honest I’m not a big fan of the forest because there may be many dangerous animals that live there such as poisonous snakes. Also there are many insects and I’m actually quite afraid of bugs. The worst thing is that it is away from civilization and if I call the police it may take them I few hours to arrive which is far too long.
Is it important to plant trees?
Personally speaking I reckon it’s essential to plant trees. First of all they provide animals with homes and shelter. Secondly we are cutting them down for paper and if we don't replant the trees one day we may run out. And ultimately Earth has a problem with global warming and only planting trees can solve this problem.
How can we protect the forests?
Nothing can be done without the help of the government. The only way we can protect trees or forests is if the government makes a place protected. People who live near the forest can then also help by calling the cops if they see any suspicious activity around the place.
What kinds of trees do you like?
Well I'm quite keen on eating cherries so I guess the cherry tree would have to be my favorite type of tree - I wish I had one in my backyard. I'm also fond of oak trees cuz the furniture made of oak are quite durable and look quite stylish.
