Noise – 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 Noise category:

Question – Do you mind noises? (Do any noises bother you?)

Answer – Yes, I can’t stand certain noises, like construction work goind on in my apartment.

Note: Not really, somehow I don’t seem to notice noise. I could sleep through an earthquake. When I fall asleep I am dead to the world.

Question – What type of noise do you come across here in your daily life?

Answer – Where I live you can hear a lot of noise from the construction and the traffic. At night I can almost literally feel the hum of all of the TVs and people talking in the area. People say that I am very sensitive to noise.

Question – How do you feel if you work in a noisy environment?

Answer – I feel irritable and I can’t concentrate. I need to work in a quiet, orderly environment.

Question – Are there any sounds that you like?

Answer – I like the sound of rain falling, and of music, and of birds singing. I also like the sound of my mother’s voice calling me to dinner. This is one of my favorite sounds.

Note: I love the sound of the waves. I also love to hear babies laughing, it’s so cute.

When you walk on the snow and it crunches under your feet.

The sound of the ocean waves breaking on the shore. To me it’s one of the world’s most relaxing sounds – nature’s lullaby.

Question – Are there any sounds you don’t like?

Answer – I hate the sound of snoring, or of babies crying, or of people talking very loudly. I also really dislike the sound of people complaining, this is one of my pet peeves.

Note: Scraping a fork against a glass/china plate.

The sound of people chewing their food up with their mouth wide open finger nails scratching a chalk board wet rubber shoes on a hardwood floor

Question – Are cities becoming noisier?

Answer – I suppose they might be, since cities are getting larger. But I think that we are all becoming a little deaf from the noise in the city and we don’t even know it.

Question – What about noise pollution? How do Chinese people feel about this form of pollution? Is it a problem in your hometown?

Answer – Well, if you have 1.4 billion people crammed into only about a fourth of the country’s space you’re bound to have problems with noise. In big cities noise is just a fact of life that you have to live with.

In my hometown, it didn’t use to be a problem, but when more people started getting cars, and construction sites started popping up all over the place, the noise went from bad to worse. Maybe someday it’ll get better, although I’ll probably go deaf before that happens.
