Describe An Unusual Thing That You Did Recently

You should say:

– What is it?
– Why was it special for you?
– Would you do it again?

Model Answer 1:

I can tell you about a trip I made a few months ago. I went to London in the UK with one of my professors from university. We were part of a research team that went from Bangladesh to meet with some other teams from around the world in London and discuss an international project that we have been working on for the last few years.

I had never been to london before, so it was amazing for me. I had often seen pictures from my father, who used to spend a lot of time there on business, years ago, but I never dreamed that I would be visiting it myself this year.

My professor and I spent about a week in London, three of the days were basically for work and then we had one free day and the weekend to see some of the local sights and experience a little of the culture of London.

It wasn’t a lot of time but it was still nice to be able to see some of the famous places and see all the people from around the world. It’s such a cosmopolitan place.

We spent hours looking at famous buildings and every now and then we would stop and sit in a cafe and drink something, to rest a little before continuing. On the second last day we actually got lost on ‘the tube’, that’s what they call the London underground train system, it’s massive and we got our directions completely wrong.

Luckily for us some local people helped us get to where we wanted to visit. I think they must be used to seeing lost ‘tourists’ all the time.

It was a really wonderful and interesting experience for me, as I had always dreamed of visiting England, I just didn’t think it would be this year – the trip was a surprise, but it was the most unusual activity I did recently.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Question and Sample Answer:

1.What are the difficulties most people face while learning new skills?

To my mind, I believe that it is the initial motion that is difficult to set off. After that everything becomes easy. Another important factor is the allocation of time from a hectic schedule. To vouch for it, I’d like to illustrate my experience that many new year resolutions have ended up in disguise just because of shortage of time


2.Do you think children have a good childhood nowadays?

I’ve mixed views regarding the childhood in this contemporary era. Actually, many factors, like education, parental care, contribute to the positive development of a child. However, in most of the cases, either weak economic condition or a dispute between father and mother can end the childhood in disguise.

3.How important is free time for children? Why?

Childhood is rightly called as the developmental stage. Therefore, free time enables the tiny-tots to do physical activity by playing a game. This allows them to grow both physically and mentally.
