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 describe a person you think has interesting ideas and opinions IELTS Cue Card 2020.

1. When do children begin to have their own ideas?

It is an interesting question. I think children begin to have their own ideas at a very young age.

Even very small children talk and amaze us as to where they got those ideas from.

2. Why are there more and more differences between children and their parents?

There are more and more differences between children and their parents because their thinking is different.

This is precisely what we call as the generation gap. Parents have their own ideas of right and wrong, but children question everything and want to know why there are some things they shouldn’t do. 

Children don’t have the experience which comes with age, but they don’t want to accept everything their parents say because they can’t see the negative side of it.

Parents sometimes lack the patience to explain things nicely and in a friendly way to their children. So, there is a conflict between parents and children.

3. What are the advantages and disadvantages of setting rules for children?

The advantages are that children become well behaved, responsible and productive adults. They also don’t land into any trouble.

For example, if parents set the rule that children should watch TV or play computer games for limited time, then they don’t get addicted to these things and have time for their homework and outdoor games. 

My father doesn’t allow us to be out of the house after 7 pm.

We follow that rule because we realize that it is for our safety.

4. Is there someone with good ideas that has changed many people’s lives?

Yes, there are many people with good ideas that have changed many people’s lives. 

For example all great scientists who have invented things have changed the lives of people.

The inventors of cell phones have changed peoples lives. The inventors of the automobile have changed people’s lives.

In our village, there was a problem of too much underground water because of which there was a seepage of water in the houses.

One of my neighbours planted about 150 eucalyptus trees around those houses. Eucalyptus is known to suck out underground water.

Now, the trees are fully grown; they look beautiful and there is no problem of seepage of water in the houses.

So, that one person’s idea has changed the life of many people.
