Sports and Exercise – 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 Sports and Exercise category:

Question – What is your favorite sport?

Answer – My favorite sport is definitely soccer. I love the feeling of being out there on the field and just running with the wind.

Note: Soccer! It’s one of the most highly athletic, demanding, and competitive sports!

My favorite sport is basketball. I like watching it. I’m not really good at any sport, because I’m not athletic.

Volleyball! I like serving in V-ball. It is all I can do well. When I was in high school, I was not popular, but I was ALWAYS called on to serve in V-ball. It was the only time I was popular!

Question – Why do you like it so much?

Answer – In soccer the rules are not too complicated, but it’s very competitive and takes a lot of skill and talent to play well. I always have fun when I’m playing or watching it on TV.

Note: These sports make you move a lot, thus giving you more adrenalin and exercise!

It’s just awesome, the thrill, the rush and then there are the dunks which can be so cool!

Because those are really the only sports I excel at. In track I am the best girl long-distance runner and in softball I am one of the better pitchers. They are also very fun and get you in shape!

I grew up in Huntington Beach California, so it was as natural to me as breathing.

Question – What is the most popular sport in your country?

Answer – I think it’s basketball. Football also has always been the most popular sport in China. Badminton and ping pong are close behind.

Question – Do you like to exercise daily?

Answer – No, I don’t. I’m awfully lazy. I know that I need to change this habit or I’m afraid it is going to come back and bite me in the butt.

Note: No. I like to wald but that’s it.

I do enjoy exercising but finding the time is the hard thing.

Walking is very good and cheap. Sit-ups and push-ups are great too. I do them when I wake up and before I go to sleep. The push-ups and 25 crunches. It’s not a lot, but it’s better than nothing.

Question – How much time do you spend exercising?

Answer – Probably five or six hours a week. I know that I will not make the Olympics at that rate, but then again sports is not my field.

Question – What are the advantages of regular exercise?

Answer – There’s the obvious advantage that if you regularly exercise you will stay stronger, more fit, and healthier, but you also get better sleep and it helps calm your busy mind.

Question – Where do people in China usually exercise?

Answer – Young people go to the gym or go to a playground and play basketball. Older people will just go outside their apartments and do Tai Chi.

Question – What forms of exercise are most popular in China?

Answer – Badminton or ping pong are very popular here in China. Basketball and football are also very popular.

Question – Do you think primary school children should have sports classes at school?

Answer – I certainly think so, because primary school children have a lot energy and if they must remain cooped up at a desk all day, they will not be able to concentrate because they will want to go out and play.
