Q1. Let’s talk about your hometown. Where is your hometown?
My hometown is a tiny village in Malaysia. It is about 40 kilometers away from any major city. Most people probably wouldn’t be able to find it on a map.
Q2. What do you like about it?
I like how the people in my hometown are so friendly, and the way that everyone knows everyone. It’s a really close-knit community, which is hard to find in big cities.
Q3. What do you not like about it?
I suppose my least favorite thing about it is that there aren’t too many fun things to do or see. It’s not the most exciting place, so sometimes I feel a little bored.
Q4. How important is your hometown to you?
My hometown is very important to me, because that’s where my family lives. It’s where I come from, so it shapes a lot of who I am as a person. If I move away, I’ll likely be homesick for awhile.
Q5. Do you think you will continue to live in your hometown?
I’ve lived in my hometown since I was born, and I would be happy to continue living there. However, I’d like to try living abroad, even if it’s just for a short time.
Q6. Can you tell me about your hometown?
My hometown, Delhi, is the second largest in India. The capital of the country, New Delhi, is also there. There is an international airport in Delhi, so it’s easy to travel in and out of the country from there.
Q7. How has your hometown changed over the years?
It has developed much better public transportation, such as the metro, which has really improved the overall accessibility of the city. There have also been measures undertaken to reduce pollution and crowds, so those problems have slightly improved. Improvements are still being made to the education system, as well.
Q8. Is there any way your hometown could be made better?
I think one of the biggest issues in Delhi is women’s safety. The city does not have a good reputation surrounding this problem, and many women fear going out alone in the city because of it. More needs to be done to protect women in Delhi.
Q9. Are there good transportation links to your hometown?
Yes, there are trains, buses and major highways that connect easily to Delhi. There is an airport in New Delhi, and since it’s the capital of India, it is very well connected to the rest of the country.
Q10. What kind of jobs do the people in your hometown do?
Well, there are many different kinds of jobs, since it is a major city, but I think some of the fastest growing job markets are in computer programming and software development. There are also many jobs in marketing and retail. However, the salaries that people make can vary quite a bit depending on how much experience they have, so sometimes it can be hard to make a living even in a city like Delhi.
Q11. Where is your hometown?
My hometown is the city of Delhi, which is located in Northern India. The Yamuna River runs through Delhi, and you can also find the Yamuna flood plains and the Delhi ridge nearby.
Q12. How often do you visit your hometown?
I visit my hometown every two years or so when I have enough time off to make the trip. It is fairly convenient to travel there, since there is an international airport. The last time I was there was about a year ago.
Q13. How many people live in your hometown?
Population-wise, Delhi is the second-largest city in India, so the population is very high. The last time I checked was awhile ago, but I believe that there are over 16 million people living in the metro area of Delhi.
Q14. What is your hometown famous for?
Delhi is probably best known for its capital within the city, New Delhi, and the president’s house, which is called the Rashtrapati Bhavan. It is also well-known to tourists for its food and marketplaces. Those who enjoy history can also check out qutub minar, which is also an interesting sight.
Q15. What’s the oldest part of your hometown?
Old Delhi is the historical part of the city, and it was founded about 400 years ago. Within Old Delhi, there is one particularly old place called “The Red Fort,” that has been standing since 1648, and nearby to that is Chandni Chowk, which is often called the oldest bazaar in Delhi.

IELTS Speaking Part 1 Topic: Accommodation

Below are common IELTS Speaking Part 1 questions related to Accommodation. If you want to prepare for the IELTS Speaking Part 1, these IELTS speaking questions are a must study. If you want to record your answers and listen to the sample answers, click on IELTS Speaking Part 1 Practice 1
Q1. Let’s move on to talk about accommodation. Tell me about the kind of accommodation you live in?
I live in an independent house which has proper fencing and a secure entrance. It has a nice front and a lavish green lawn decked with variety of flowers. At the back side of the house, there is a parking space for two cars. Overall, it is a well-planned building.
Q2. Does the place you live in have many amenities?
Yes, the house has everything I need for my daily routines. There is a laundry room with a washing machine, a full kitchen with appliances, and my own bedroom where I keep all of my things. There’s also a 24-hour security guard attending the front gate to our neighborhood.
Q3. Is there anything you would like to change about the place you live in?
Overall, my house is more than satisfactory. However, if I had to change something, I would probably add a garden or outdoor space. It would be nice if my family could grow some edible plants and vegetables, but unfortunately there’s not a yard.
Q4. Do you plan to live there for a long time?
Even though I’ve lived here my whole life, I don’t think I will live in this house forever. At some point I eventually plan to move out of my family’s house, most likely when I begin a university program abroad.
Q5. Do you live in a house or a flat?
Right now I’m renting a little flat just outside the city in order to keep my living expenses down.
Q6. Is it a big place?
It’s enough space to get by, although I wouldn’t describe it as big. There are 2 bedrooms in the flat, in addition to a common area, but the kitchen is so tiny you could hardly squeeze more than one person in.
Q7. How long have you lived there?
I’ve lived in my current apartment for about three years now. It’s not much, but it has everything I need and is in a convenient location to get to and from work. I’ll probably re-sign the lease and stay another year.
Q8. What do you like about living there?
Well, like I said, the apartment I live in now is nothing special, but its location is practical and convenient. I would say that the location is probably my favorite thing about it, because I don’t have to waste time commuting to work, and there are plenty of restaurants and shops in the neighborhood.
Q9. Is there a garden in the place you live in?
No, since I live in a small flat near the city, there’s unfortunately no way for me to have a garden. We do have a few indoor plants, though. My flatmate grows some kitchen herbs like basil and thyme.

IELTS Speaking Part 1 Topic: Country

Well, Indian cuisine is famous around the world, and North Indian cuisine is the most popular kind. I think people like it because the flavors are bold and unique and there are many different kinds of dishes for those who eat meat as well as vegetarians.
Q2. Where do you live in your country?
I live in Delhi, which is the second most populated city in India. I’ve lived there for my entire life, and most of my family does, too.
Q3. Is it a interesting place to live?
Yes, I think Dehli is a very interesting place full of history and culture. People who live or visit Delhi can experience the past, present, and the future of India all in one place. The city is also very diverse and welcoming to those from different cultures, so it’s a good place for tourists to visit.
Q4. Are you planning to live there in the future?
No, in the future I hope that I can live in the UK, because I think it is a good place to live and there are more promising opportunities for work in my professional field. However, I will always go back to visit my family in Delhi.
