Q-card on :
Painting or photograph in house?
Third section :
Do paintings need to be compulsory module in schools?
Should elder people learn how to paint?
Images with camera are good ….or paintings are good ….?
Please guide me with below:
I got 7 bands (R-7.5, L-8 , S-6.5, W-6) last time in IELTS academic 4 years ago and it was 6.5 in speaking that time.
But this time my examiner interrupted me in every question she asked, therefore I did not answer any question completely.
And other thing when she provided q-card, I haven’t prepared for 1 minute and started speaking even she asked me are you sure you don’t want to prepare? (Is that will give her impression of crammed answer? )
But I completed 2 minutes.
And I think overall she spent just 7-8 minutes interviewing me, please let me know how I can take this kind of behaviour. I am really worried about my speaking module.
Thanks for sharing 🙂 It is normal that the examiner can interrupt your answer. This is because of timing and the examiner wanting to test various aspects of language using different questions. The examiner might have been worried that your answer was memorised if you needed no time to prepare. However, if you spoke naturally and followed the topic, I’m sure it will not affect your score. I always advise students to use the full minute to prepare. If you feel that your English language was strong and flexible, you will still get a good score. Let’s wait for your results.
All the best
Do the benefits of tourism outweigh the drawbacks?
Here are some ideas. I've organised the vocabulary according to different perspectives (different ways of looking at this issue).
Positives of tourism:
- Personal perspective: Tourism is a popular leisure activity. Tourists can relax, have fun, 'recharge their batteries', experience different customs and cultures (sight-seeing, sunbathing, visiting monuments, tasting new cuisine). Travel opens our minds. It can broaden our horizons.
- Economic perspective: The tourism industry is vital for some countries. People rely on tourism for their income. Tourism attracts investment from governments and companies. It creates employment due to demand for goods and services (hotels, entertainment etc.). It helps to improve the standard of living.
Negatives of tourism:
- Environmental perspective: Tourism can have a negative impact on the environment. Excessive building (roads, hotels etc.) destroys natural habitats and spoils the landscape. Tourism creates pollution and waste. It puts pressure on local resources such as food, water and energy.
- Economic perspective: Tourism may cause a rise in the cost of living. Prices of goods and services go up. Tourists buy second homes. All of this affects local people.
- Cultural perspective: Local traditions may be lost. Traditional jobs and skills die out (e.g. farming, fishing). Local people are forced to work in the tourist industry.
Thinking about topics from different perspectives can help you to generate better ideas. This technique isn't perfect for every topic, but it can be really useful.
