Talking about pets or animals in IELTS Speaking can be a challenge, not only for the vocabulary, but also knowing what to talk about. The IELTS Speaking Module is designed to assess your English Language Speaking Skills. To ensure a good score in the IELTS Speaking Module, you must study and practice the common Speaking Question types.
Get ideas on the sample answers below and practice to achieve your target band score. Here are some of the questions asked:
1. What’s your favorite animal?
Answer – Hm.. I would have to say whales. I’ve been fascinated by them ever since I was a child. There’s just something so majestic about them, maybe it has to do with (is related to) their size. Plus they are highly intelligent and family-oriented creatures. It’s believed that they even speak their own languages!
2. Do you like to see animals in the zoo?
Answer – Not really. Sure, it’s interesting to see them, but I also feel sad seeing them in cages. In my opinion, wild animals should not be in captivity (caged) unless they have some sort of injury. Actually, I think it’s a shame that humans feel the need to see nature so badly that they cage them and charge people to enter.
3. Do you keep a pet?
Answer – Not currently. I would like to, but I’m actually not allowed to because of my apartment regulations. Additionally, I live in a small studio apartment so it wouldn’t be the best environment for a pet, unless it were a cat or small animal. Moreover, I work full-time so I wouldn’t have a lot of time to tend to the pet.
4. Did you have a pet when you were young?
Answer – Yes, I did. My parents were both animal lovers (people who love animals), so we always had a house full of pets.
My first pet was a lizard named Charlie, then onto my very own black kitten named Pal. Although I played too hard with my pets and made them annoyed, I still got a lot of joy from them. Additionally, I also learned a sense of responsibility from a young age.
5.What pet will you have later?
Answer – Hmm. I think I want a dog and a cat. When I think about it more, I cannot imagine having a family without a dog for my children one day.
I can envision them playing with a Golden Retriever or a Labrador retriever, as they have a friendly demeanor (way of being). On the other hand, I’m more of a cat person (a person who prefers cats to dogs), so I would like to have one as well.
6. If you raise children in the future, will you allow them to keep a pet?
Answer – Yes, for sure. I would like to make their dreams come true of having a pet, as many children want. Moreover, I feel a pet is a great addition to a family.
Lastly, I think allowing them to have a pet is a good opportunity for them to begin to have a sense of responsibility when it comes to walking their pet, changing the litter box (the box where cats go to the bathroom), feeding them, cleaning the cage, etc.
