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 time when you felt bored”
1. When do people feel bored?
Most of the time people feel bored when there is no change in their routine and they are doing the same thing over and over again. Boredom happens due to monotony in life.
Sometimes, it may also depend on an individual’s mood or if a person does not find interest in the things he/she is doing.
2. What can people do when they feel bored?
People can do a lot of things when they are bored. They can watch a good movie, listen to some nice music or go for a walk.
They can also talk to their loved one’s or may be play a game with them. Basically they should try to do something different than usual.
3. Do people get bored about daily routines?
Definitely yes, I think it is the leading cause for boredom. There are numerous examples when people get bored because of daily routines.
For instance, I cannot eat homecooked food for more than 5 days in a row, it makes me feel like that life is dull and there is no fun. Similarly, the weekend brings a nice change from the boring monotony of weekdays.
4. Is it easier for younger people to feel bored than for the old?
I believe so, it could be due to the fact that old people are more experienced and patient as compared to young one’s.
They have seen most of the things in life so they do not have high expectations, whereas the young one’s, especially today’s generation is always looking for something to feed their mind. They easily become bored if they don’t get something new.
