IELTS Speaking Part 1 Topic : Patience

Topic : Patience

  1. What do you think “patience” is?

Well, I think patience is a virtue. Unfortunately, nowadays most people are quite impatient. For example, many people want to get rich quickly but are not willing to get their hands dirty. So they always complain about life.

  1. Do you think patience is important?

Absolutely. I think it’s a quality that everybody should try to learn. In my opinion, learning to wait until the right time is the key to success. In fact, most successful entrepreneurs are very patient.

  1. Do you think being patient is an important part of being polite?

Yes, I think patience is an indicator of politeness. A polite person would never chew someone out for keeping them waiting. If there’s a good excuse for being late, a polite person would be willing to overlook such minor mistakes.

  1. Have you ever lost your patience?

Well, yeah, without doubt, there has  been times when I lost my cool. For example, there was this one time, when I had to wait forever to be seated at a popular restaurant. Then someone suddenly cut in line and that really ticked me off.

  1. Were you patient when you were young?

I don’t really know, since I don’t have many childhood memories. It’s pretty common, however, for kids to easily lose patience as they don’t know how to keep their emotions in check. There may have been times I was patient, and times I was not.
