Model Answer:

Many foreigners have been coming to Beijing from all over the world; but for me, one girl; ‘ from the United States, has stood out more than the rest. Her name was Jane. I invited her to my house a few times over the summer.

Honestly, at first, I think we both just wanted to practice our language skills; but I believe that something more grew out of this relationship. We became close friends.

We both played basketball and badminton together, and we talked about many interesting ‘ topics. We skipped past the common cliche conversations like, ” Where are you from, and what is your home town like?” to more meaningful topics such as our fears, passions, life ; dreams. I never thought that I would have so much in common with someone from another country. For example we both wanted to become fashion designers. We loved watching foreign fashion shows from Paris. More than just our similarities we had fun together. We ‘ began joking around, acting silly together.

I now feel like I have known her all my life. I was surprised how open and understanding she was, and how open I became with myself. I think in the short time we had together we became closer than any of my other friends. I was very sad when she had to return home, but I think that we will both remember our experiences together. I also believe that we both learned something new about the world. Despite all of our differences, we are still somewhat the same.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Question and Sample Answer:

When you travel to another city, do you prefer to stay in a hotel or with friends?

When I travel to another city, I prefer to stay in a hotel rather than with my friends. I do not like to be an inconvenience to my friends; also I like to have privacy. When I get up in the morning, I can move freely without the awkwardness. I Know everything in the hotel is mine to use, so I do not have to worry about my friend getting upset if i touch something I am not supposed to. Also if I am traveling I like to relax, so it is nice to have someone else clean up after me.

What qualities should people who work in hotels have?

I think hotel employees should be helpful and knowledgeable at the front desk. They should be warm and friendly. The receptionists should know the tourist spots of the city and where there are good restaurants. The room service should be quiet, almost unseen, and respectful for people’s privacy. Everyone in the hotel should always answer with a smile and never make a guest feel unwelcome.

How should employees in the hospitality industry be trained?

Employees in the hospitality industry should be constantly evaluated. They should practice friendly ways of answering common questions. Everyone should be taught what to do if they do not know an answer to a question, and how to deal with uptight people. Employees should know how to handle difficult situations with grace. They should be taught organization skills. And most of all, they should do their jobs professionally and efficiently.

How do you think hotels could attract more guests?

A hotel can create its own buzz by the services it provides, and by how it provides them. Hotels can attract more guests with excellent and memorable service. The best advertisement is word of mouth. If a hotel can provide a guest with a remarkable experience and good advice, that hotel will leave a lasting impression. Be sure that guests will tell their friends. A hotel can exist or not exist in the mind of a traveler. It is up to the hotel and its employees to make a lasting impression with good advice, useful tips, and excellent service.
