IELTS Speaking Sample Answers

a) What do you usually do in the countryside?
Whenever I have the chance, I make it a point to visit Mount Tamborine, a town located about 1.5 hours away from my residence in Brisbane. There are countless activities that keep me occupied during my time there. One of my favourite spots to visit is the mesmerising Cedar Creek waterfalls of Lamington national park, which offer breathtaking views over the entire Gold Coast hinterland. Additionally, I love taking long leisurely strolls through the rainforest, immersing myself in the crisp clean mountainous air, and relishing the peaceful atmosphere that surrounds me.
b) Have you ever lived in the countryside?
Although I have never resided there, I have had the opportunity to spend a significant amount of time in Longreach, where my uncle and aunt had their home. Our family used to visit them every year during the Christmas school holidays, and I have fond memories of playing in the sugar cane fields they owned and riding around the plantation in the tractor with my uncle. Those days hold a special place in my heart, and I often find myself reminiscing about them.

a) Do you sometimes go to bed late?
The time I go to bed is contingent on whether I have completed my work tasks on time. If I haven't, I will work late into the night to finish them, and typically go to bed around 1:00 AM or 2:00 AM.
b) How often do you drink water?
To maintain proper hydration and overall fitness, I ensure that I consume a glass of water every hour, amounting to approximately 12-15 glasses of water throughout the day. This regular intake of water plays a crucial role in keeping me hydrated and in good shape.
