IELTS Speaking part 3 Follow Up Questions.
Here are some follow up questions you may be asked during part 3 IELTS Speaking exam by the IELTS examiner related to 1st cue card:
“Describe a live sports match that you have watched”
1. Do you prefer to watch live sports or watch it on TV?
I prefer watching sports on the TV. I think the Televisions have improved so much over the recent times that the experience is the same as watching it live.
Moreover, the luxury of sitting in the comfort of one’s house cannot be matched.
2. Why do some people like to watch live sports?
I think watching sports live is much more about spending quality time with friends and family.
People go there to break the monotony of everyday life and do something different. For some, it is also about the possibility of meeting or getting an autograph from their favourite sportsperson.
3. What kind of sports do Indian people like to watch?
Indians are crazy about many sports like hockey, football, but I think nothing can come close to the popularity of cricket. I think nearly everyone watches cricket and many play it also.
In fact, many Indians in foreign countries also play cricket even though the game isn’t popular there.
4. Do you think competition is good for students?
Certainly, I think competition makes us students work harder. Life without competition would be very boring.
Moreover, the growing population means that competition is only going to increase in the future, so it better for students to learn to handle competition from early childhood.
