• Initially, he just simply refused.

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 encouraged someone to do something that he/she didn’t want to do”
1. How could leaders encourage their employees?
There are many ways by which leaders and managers can encourage employees like leading through example, incentives and appreciation.
I think each individual is wired differently. So, while one method may work for some people, it may not work for another person.
2. When should parents encourage their children?
I think parents should always encourage their children. But children need encouragement especially if they are afraid of failing or trying out something new.
Parents should tell them that success is secondary and trying is a much bigger achievement.
3. What kind of encouragement should parents give?
I think parents can encourage their children in many ways.
If children are afraid of embarrassment, parents can do the same thing in front of children first. For example, once in school, one of my friends’ father encouraged him to dance by himself dancing.
But I think the biggest achievement is supporting children when they are trying something new and telling them that success doesn’t matter as long as they try something.
4. Do you think some people are better at persuading others?
Yes, I think some people are able to motivate others much better. I think it depends upon
If people are able to understand other people’s emotions, they are able to better understand and motivate them.
