In IELTS Speaking Part 1, to answer IELTS examiner’s questions in a natural and fluent way, you should focus on one idea only and then expand that idea into a long meaningful sentence using grammar patterns and vocabulary, which can help you get Band 8.0+ for IELTS Speaking.
Let’s practice it with some easy questions about a popular topic: Study in the Morning or Evening.
Speaking Part 1
1. Do you prefer to study in the morning or in the evening?
I definitely prefer studying in the morning. I am at my optimal level of performance when I first wake up in the morning after a cup of coffee. So, I like to get my studying out of the way (to get something done so you don’t have to worry about it) so I can relax more throughout the day. When I try to study in the evening, I tend to be too tired and unfocused.
2. What do you do to improve your efficiency?
Exercise! When I feel unmotivated or unfocused, exercise is the number one thing that keeps me on track (keep me focused). Second of all, taking a short break and coming back to my work with new, fresh ideas helps a bunch (a lot). Last of all, balancing work and my personal life helps me to perform to my best ability.
3. Why do some people find it difficult to focus in the morning?
Well, there could be a few different reasons. For one, I think many people don’t feel energized. Second of all, they may be distracted by all of the tasks they must complete that day. Lastly, they simply just may not be morning people (people who like the morning).
- get out of the way: to get something done so you don’t have to worry about it
