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 an ambition that you have for long time”
1. What kinds of ambition do people have?
I think ambitions vary with age. In school student’s ambitions is to get into a good college or a university.
Some youngsters with a creative mindset also dream about becoming a successful celebrity or a successful singer.
As people finish their education, the ambition is to get a high-paid job in reputed firm and then after children, children’s ambitions become the parent’s ambitions too.
2. Why should parents encourage children to have ambitions?
I think ambitions give direction to children. It makes sure they are dedicated and less likely
to fall off the track.
Moreover, if children are ambitious they are less likely to fall down on failing. They are always willing to try again.
3. Should parents interfere with children’s ambitions?
I think if parents interfere with children’s ambitions, it would create a feeling of resentment among the children for the parents.
It would have disastrous long-term consequences for their relationship.
I think parents should be supportive of their children’s dreams, but they can encourage them to keep backups and not put all their eggs into one basket.
4. Is there any difference of ambition of grown-ups and that of children?
I think grown-up’s ambitions are much more realistic than children because they know that life is full of problems and hurdles.
Children, on the other hand, sometimes have very unrealistic ambitions.
Children also don’t get much disheartened on failing to achieve their goals, while adults sometimes even go into depression on failing.
