Family Life – IELTS Speaking Questions By Mark Allen

The topics in IELTS Speaking Exam are always about something familiar to you, such as “What you do”, “How are you? etc.

You should not speak too quickly or too slowly. It is also important to have good intonation and stress. You will not get a high score if you are too hesitant and have too many pauses when you speak, although a few pauses to collect your thoughts are fine.

Try not to speak too quickly, either. Rapid speech often indicates a lack of cohesion in what you are saying and severely affects the rhythm and flow of your speech.

Below is the list of few IELTS Speaking Questions by Mark Allen in Family Life category:

Question – Could you tell me about your family?

Answer – My father is a manager at a bank and my mother is a nurse in a hospital. I am an only child, but I have many cousins that I’ve grown up with.

Question – Do you still have your grandparents?

Answer – I only have one grandmother, for my father’s parents died when he was young, and my mother’s father passed away recently.

Question – What influence do they have on their children or grandchildren?

Answer – They have a big influence on their children and grandchildren, especially grandchildren. They spend a lot of time with their grandchildren, because their parents are usually working during the day.

Question – How are you getting on with your parents?

Answer – I get on with my parents wonderfully; they’re easy to talk to, kind, and I trust them completely.

Note: If you asked me that when I was in juniorj high, it would be a totally different point of view. But now, I love them! There are times when I don’t like my parents and times when they argue – it tears me apart-but they always work through their problems and they care for their children like all parents should.

My Mom is like one of my best friends. She’s really smart, and I talk to her about everything. She helps me out of situations and gives me her honest opinions on everything.

I don’t. I am trying to become the person my mom wants me to be, she has a list of things that she thinks I need to become, and that I need to better myself and all. But no matter how hard I try she never seems satisfied.

I get along with my parents greatly… I haven’t been the perfect daughter by any means.

Question – Do you prefer to spend time with your family or with your friends?

Answer – In many ways, my family are my friends. But at the same time, I sometimes have more fun with my friends because they are closer to my age.

Question – Is family very important to you?

Answer – My family is one of the most important things in the world to me. When everything goes wrong and nothing is going right, my family is always right there for me.

Note: Family is important to me because it’s really all we have in the long run. Once you grow up and move out and away, you then realize how important your family is. You start to miss them and wish that you were around to go to b-day parties, births, and reunions. Friends can’t complete you like family.

Yes absolutely. I have been going through some very painful times. I do not know what I would do without the love, support and strength I have received from them. I love them and will always be there if they need me. Family is not always perfect, but most of the time they are there for you.

Question – If you were married, how many children would you choose to have?

Answer – If I were married, I guess I’d want about four or five children. I would love to have a big family, because then family members support and help each other, and my children won’t be lonely growing up.
