IELTS Speaking Part 3 : Follow up Questions

Here some examples of follow up questions that you may asked during your speaking part 3 by examiner related to cue card “describe a person who impressed you the most when you were in primary school”.

1. Why do people always miss their childhood?
I think it’s because that is the only time when we are free of worries, tensions, and stress. We know that our parents would take care of any problem we face. It is also because after childhood we are never able to spend that much time with our family again.

2. Are kids happier than adults? Why?
Yes, I believe most people are happier during their childhood and it’s because of the same reason, they don’t have to face the responsibilities and stress of adult life.

3. Why do people still remember many of their friends from primary school?
I think it’s because of the amount of time we spent with them. We never spend as much time with friends during adulthood because of work and familial responsibilities. Also, because we all like to reminisce about our childhood, and childhood friends are a big part of our childhood.

4. What kinds of primary school teachers impress students?
I think primary school teachers need to be patient and understanding. All children are different in different ways. For example, some have a difficult time reading but are good at math. Teachers need to be able to understand these differences and have the patience to be able to guide students at their own speed. This is especially important at an early age because children are not mature enough to explain their problems to teachers.
