Talking about time management 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. How do you organize your time?
Answer – Hmm, well I’m not always the most organized person, but the good thing is that I’m not a procrastinator (someone who waits until the last minute). I always do what needs to be done first, such as my errands or work tasks. After I do what I need to do, I will then allow myself to relax.
I often prioritize things that matter to me most, in the order of urgency and importance. Usually, I often spend the evening planning out what to do the next day.
2. Do you make plans every day?
Answer – No, I don’t. I’m more of a spontaneous (unplanned) person. I don’t like to plan every second of every day, as plans can quickly change. I only plan out what I need to do and how to get it done, but I let my social interactions come up (arise) unplanned.
3. Would you say you manage your time well?
Answer – More or less. I’m not the most organized nor disorganized person on the planet. However, I can say with certainty that I always complete what is asked of me. On the other hand, I sometimes can’t do things like plan vacations very well.
4. Are you ever late for anything?
Answer – Once in a blue moon (very rarely)! I am a stickler (serious) about time, so I am almost never late. When I think about it, the only times I’ve been late for work were because of a traffic jam or an accident.
5. Do you think young people organize their time in the same way?
Answer – No, I don’t. I think that’s too general of a question. I believe everyone organizes their time in different ways. However, young people tend to have heavy work and study schedules, so they may not be able to manage their time and tasks as well as someone who doesn’t. So, in this case, young people have to prioritize(decide what is most important) more.
No, it depends on each individual. Some prefer to have no plans at all as they can improvise quite well no matter what situations. For me, I always plan out my schedule in advance as I’m a safe guy/girl and don’t want to take risks.
6. What’s the biggest difficulty you have when managing time?
Answer – I would have to say my social life. As I have a demanding work schedule, I tend to lose track of time and forget to add in time to spend with my friends and family. I am looking for a way to manage this better.
7. How do you feel when you are late for an appointment?
Answer – I really don’t like to keep others waiting. I feel very apologetic and guilty of not being punctual. Usually I’m late because I’m trying to fit too many things into my schedule.
