Below are sample answers for the the topics of travel and transport for part 1 of the IELTS speaking test.
Q. Do you often travel abroad?
A. Not much, to be honest. I don’t get many days off in a year but when I do have time off, I mainly spend that time with my family in my hometown.
Q. When is the best season to travel in your country?
A. I guess it would be spring. That’s when the weather starts warming up and all the flowers start blossoming. It’s a really beautiful season and most places are at their best at that time. Unfortunately, it’s a busy time for tourists as well but that still doesn’t diminish the beauty of the countryside.
Q. Where would you recommend a foreign to visit in your country?
A. Without doubt, London. Not only is it our capital, but it also has some of the most iconic buildings in our country. I don’t think any visit to England is complete without seeing the Tower of London, London Bridge or Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. They really are very impressive pieces of architectural work and can’t be missed.
Q. How did you get here today?
A. I came by bike because the roads are pretty congested at this time and a bike is quicker. It only took me about 15 minutes to get here.
Q. Do you often use public transport?
A. Yes, I do. I use the bus almost everyday. It’s the cheapest way to get around even though it’s really overcrowded and not particularly punctual.
Q. How could the transportation system be improved in your country?
A. Well, I think the first step to improvement would be to widen the roads and build to overpasses and underpasses to help traffic flow more freely which would reduce the congestion in the city center. Also, it would help if the bus service was improved to make it run more frequently which would help with the overcrowding in rush hour. I think those are the two main changes that need to happen.
