Part 2-Ielts Speaking Model: An interesting Animal
An Interesting Animal
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 answers for this topic.
Describe a time when you saw an interesting animal.
You should say:
what animal it was
where you saw it
what happened when you saw it
and explain why you thought it was interesting.
The animal I want to talk about is an endangered animal of China. It is called the panda. I am sure you have heard of it since it is the national treasure of China. The panda has black and white fur and are part of the bear family. Further more they are fat, can weight up to 200kg and have sharp teeth and claws. They like to eat bamboo but sometimes they will also eat meat.
Pandas currently live in the Si Chuan province of China. Si Chuan has an area in the forest specifically for the protection of pandas. The temperature there is not too hot and not too cold so it is very suitable for the pandas to live in.
There are 3 main reasons why I like the panda. Firstly I think they are very cute, I have many panda dolls and they are my favorite animal. Secondly they are rare and therefore unique. One day they may die out so we should treasure them now. Thirdly they are friendly; the pandas that I have seen at the zoo are people friendly and will not hurt others. The panda is a dying breed of animals and we should protect them the best we can or they would be extinct.
