ielts speaking part 1 questions and answers | Home

1.Do you live in house or flat?

I currently live in a house with three bedrooms, a bathroom and an open living space, with a dining area and kitchen. It also has a large yard at the front of the house and a large veranda at the back of the house, which has great views.

2.Can you describe the place where you live? / Please describe the room you live in?

Briefly, my humble house is located in a small and quiet street, so coming home to me is like all the craziness happened outside is left behind. Just beside my house stands a big old tree. I have my own room with walls painted white, which is kind of a peaceful colour. The air outside is fresh. I usually open the window to enjoy the wind and sunshine, which will help cool down my room without an air conditioner. Since I spend most of my time staying at home, my room means the whole world to me. It’s like a friend who is always there to share ups and downs with me. So yeah, I would always miss my house, my room whenever I’m away.

3.What’s your favourite room in your home?

I love my house and my favorite room in my house is my bedroom. I spend most of time in my bedroom. The first thing is that I sleep in my bedroom, so it is the place which gives me the ultimate relaxation. I also like to watch movies in my room. I want privacy and my bedroom is the only place where I can get it.

4.Who do you live with?

I live with my family. There are 5 of us and we all have our own room, which is way more comfortable as the older we grow, the more privacy we need for ourselves. I think our house is big enough for us yet still a warm and cozy place that I call home.

5. Which part of your home do you like the most?

It’s the dining room where my family spends our time together.  Not only lunch or dinner but all our family reunions take place in the dining room where we can enjoy a harmonious atmosphere. We always try to keep the family dinner as something we cannot go a day without, since for us it’s the family bonding that lies behind.

6. How long have you lived there?

Although during my childhood my family had to move a lot, I’ve lived in the most recent house for almost ten years. Comparing to the old houses, I think this house has been the best so far.

 7.What’s the difference between where you are living now and where you have lived in the past?

As I’ve already mentioned my family moved several times when I was younger. And the most current house where we’ve been living for about ten years is the best house so far. All of us have separate rooms for our need of privacy yet a big dining room where we can spend the whole evenings together watching TV or having dinner.

8.What do you usually do in your house/flat/room

Well, definitely I’ll spend some me-time there. I study, I chill out by reading, drawing and dancing all by myself. Sometimes I also invite one or two friends to spend time with. We’ll watch some movies together and tell each other endless stories.

9. Are the transport facilities to your home very good?

Not at all. Actually, my house is not nearby the main road, so it takes me about 10 minutes to walk to the nearest bus stop. Besides, the bus service from my work place to my home is usually over-crowded, so I often drive my own car to work.

10. Would you like to move to a different home in the future?

Although my current accommodation is perfectly fine, I would love to experience living in a villa once. Since it was my childhood dream to have a swimming pool and a garden of my own, a villa seems like an ideal house for me.
