Speaking part 2 Q 31 – Model answer

Here’s a model answer to last week’s IELTS Speaking Part 2 question.

A key event in my life was when I moved to Singapore at the age of 15.

My father was transferred to Singapore and so, I studied from Grade 10 to 12 in an international school there and completed my schooling.  I was excited because I had lived in several cities in India but it would be the first time I was moving abroad.

Shifting overseas changed my life as I was exposed to a variety of cultures, not only in school but also around me. Living in such a diverse environment helped me develop an understanding of the importance of a globally interconnected world.

I feel it changed my life in a good way because I got the opportunity to study a different curriculum in school which allowed me to pick a range of subjects from humanities to science as opposed to India where you need to specialize in one of the prescribed streams. This helped broaden my horizons.

Speaking part 2 Q 30- Model Answer

Here’s the model answer to last week’s IELTS Speaking Part 2 question.

I would like to talk about the Sri Lankan town of Galle. It was a town built by the Dutch several hundred years ago and retains the Dutch style of architecture. The streets are quaint and narrow with shops on either side selling a variety of tokens for tourists.  The Galle fort is, now, on my list of magnificent historic sites.

However, the most impressive historic place I have visited is the Palace of Versailles in Paris. Having been the erstwhile seat of the French royals, it is a splendid sight showcasing beauty and opulence together.

It was during my holiday to Paris that I managed to visit the Palace and many other famous sights such as the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre Museum. It was a lovely holiday and Paris is indeed as beautiful as everyone says.

IELTS SPEAKING PART 2 – Q.15 MODEL ANSWER

Here’s the answer for last week’s Speaking Part 2 question.

I am going to talk about Hindustani and Carnatic music. They’re the traditional forms of music in India.

Hindustani music is prevalent in the northern part of the country while Carnatic is associated uniquely with the southern states. They’re both based on ragas, but the style differs according to the “gharanas” that one trains in. There are also many instruments such as the sitar, the tabla, the harmonium, etc., that are integral to these forms of music.

Neither form of music is widely popular, however, fusions with Western music are becoming increasingly popular. Most commercial singers are trained in classical Indian music to some extent.

Personally, I enjoy both forms of music. Although, I prefer instrumental performances as I have never been trained in classical music and so feel that I cannot appreciate the nuances of a vocal performance.
