Housing and Accommodation – 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 Housing and Accommodation category:

Question – What kind of housing/accommodation do you live in?

Answer – I live in an apartment building. My family owns two apartments right next to each other and I live in the smaller apartment with my sister. My mother and father and my father’s parents live in the other.

Question – How do you like it?

Answer – Oh, I like it very much; I live quite high up and I have a wonderful view of the city. And it is very convenient to live near my parents, as my mom often cooks for us when we are very busy.

Question – What kind of decorations does it (do the rooms) have?

Answer – The apartment is very nicely furnished, though simple. We have a brand new living room set, a couch and two chairs, which my parents picked out. My sister and I picked out the curtains and lamps and knicknacks, so that it has kind of a Middle Eastern style. We decorated our own rooms with all the things we saved from growing up.

Question – What kind of house or apartment do you want to live in?

Answer – I want to live in a little house in the country, with two floors and a big attic and basement, and wide gardens and orchards around it. I would probably have to live in an apartment in town most of the time and I would like my apartment to also have two floors.

Note: I would love to own a nice brickfront townhouse close to work. Something with a deek above a patio, a big kitchen, and plenty of room to entertain. That would be so wonderful…

Question – Which is your favorite room in your home?

Answer – My favorite room is my room, because it has my bed and things in it and a little window seat where you can sit in the sunshine and look outside. When I want to get away from everything for a while, I can escape to my room surrounded by the things I love that remind me of happy memories and if I want to chill I can play computer games whenever I want.

Note: I like the living room because there I can relax on the couch.

Of course. My bedroom, because I can do whatever I want in it. No noise, but my own.

I would have to say that it would be my room. It’s clean, well kept but comfortable and relaxing.

It’s my territory. I could do what ever I want and it wouldn’t matter because it’s my room.

The kitchen. It is the hub of the house. More activity there than anywhere else. And I like to cook.

Question – Which room does your family spend most of the time in?

Answer – My family spends most of their time in the living room. We often watch DVDs together or we just talk about our day. And if we have friends or relatives over, we will all go into the living room to sit and talk and eat some snacks.

Question – What would you say is the best thing about your home?

Answer – My favorite thing about my home is the big terrace we have; it’s a very pleasant place to sit in the warm weather. There is a “secret” door inside a closet that leads out onto the terrace and we have a picnic table and chairs out there, so you can just go out there under the sky and read a book or look up into the clear blue sky.

Note: Probably my comforter set. I didn’t like it much when I first bought it – I originally wanted another design – but it’s grown on my in the past few months.

It depends. If you’re talking about my apartment or my parent’s house. Their house, I like the family room – awesome couches and big-screen TV. In my apartment, my bedroom – comfy king-size bed.

Question – Would you like to move to another place?

Answer – Not now, but eventually yes, because I think I would be bored to live in the same place for too long. I would miss my parents so it would be hard to move away from home, but at the same time I am anxious to have a life of my own. Plus I think that living in a big city is very impersonal and I would like to live in a different place.
