Band 9.0 Sample Answer Ideas.
I have known my interesting neighbor, Mrs. Patel, for about 5 years now. She is a retired school teacher in her late 60s and has lived in our neighborhood for most of her life. Mrs. Patel is a very kind and friendly person, and she is always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. She is also very active in the community, and is often involved in various volunteer projects and charitable events.
I see Mrs. Patel fairly often, as she lives just a few doors down from me. We often chat when we run into each other on the street or at the mailbox, and she is always interested in hearing about my life and what I am up to. She is also a great source of advice and wisdom, and I often seek her counsel on various matters.
Overall, I consider Mrs. Patel to be an interesting neighbor because she is a very warm and caring person who is always willing to go out of her way to help others. She has a wealth of life experience and is always willing to share her insights and perspective on various issues. I feel fortunate to have her as a neighbor, and I value our friendship greatly.

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 interesting neighbour IELTS Game”
1. Do you think (good) neighbours are important? (Why? How? Why not?
Good neighbors are important because they are our family apart from our real family. When we are alone, and we need somebody then neighbors are the first people who can give us company.
When we are sick and need to go to the hospital, the neighbors are the first people who can help.
When we have guests and need a helping hand, then neighbors are the first people who come to our rescue
2. What are the qualities of a good neighbour? (What qualities would you like your neighbours to have?)
Good neighbors should have many qualities. They should be cooperative. They should be helpful.
Good neighbors should respect boundaries, which means that they should know when they are being helpful, and when they are interfering.
3. Do most Indian people know their neighbours?
In smaller towns and cities, and in villages most people know their neighbors, but in big cities and in metropolis, people are leading self-centered lives and do not know their neighbors.
In small towns and cities life is slower, and so people have time for their neighbors, where as in big cities, life is fast and so people do not have time for their neighbors.
4. What are some of the qualities of a good community?
A good community should care for each other. All people in the community should cooperate with each other. This should help each other in times of emergency. They should all keep the environment clean.
They should have frequent get-togethers, and celebrate festivals together. If all
people of the community know each other, then miscreants could be spotted easily and everybody would feel safe and secure.
5. In India, are there any facilities for improving relations between neighbours?
Yes, the government authorities such as, PUDA, Punjab Urban Development Authority, has provided well-maintained parks at regular intervals so that people can socialize.
Such facilities have been provided by all states. Even the private housing societies, which make and sell apartments, have some combined facilities for all people in that society to use.
