This is the IELTS Speaking test. I would like to ask you a few questions so that I can get to know you.
Read the given instructions carefully then start speaking on it.
I’m _________________, let us begin your test. Please speak for 4-5 minutes.
Now in the first part of the test, I’m going to ask you some questions about ‘Shopping.’
Let us talk more about shopping.
1. I do like going shopping. Though I don’t shop often, I thoroughly enjoy myself during my select few trips to the malls. I am particularly fond of festive shopping; one can find a great deal of discounts and amazing deals everywhere.
2. Coming to my shopping habits and where I generally go shopping, I must say that I am not particular about any brands or outlets. I tend to shop wherever I feel like. It also mostly depends on the collections at a given store, discounts, and so on. I mostly prefer going to malls where one can find a myriad of brands and outlets. I visit a few outlets, look at the clothes, make a note of what I like, compare the quality and price, after which I make a final decision.
Now we move on to Part Two of the speaking test. Have a look at this card and read it carefully. You have about one minute to think about your answer. Then approximately one or two minutes to talk to me about what’s on the slip. You can use a pen and paper to make some notes.
Describe a profession that you believe is highly useful to the society.
You should say:
> what it involves
> what are the educational qualifications necessary> and why do you think it is useful to the society
If you had a chance, would you be willing to take up the profession you just described?
In my opinion, the profession of a research scientist is highly useful and beneficial to the society. The profession of a research scientist involves a plethora of responsibilities and tasks that include designing, undertaking, and analysing information via controlled lab examinations, experiments, and trails. Research scientists work in both public and private sectors; for instance, a research scientist in the public sector works for government laboratories, on the other hand, a research scientist in the private sector may work for specialist research organisations. In layman terms, a research scientist picks an intricate problem and performs controlled experiments to understand and study it. Let’s say there’s a research scientist working to cure cancer. He or she may have to perform a plethora of lab experiments, investigate several patients suffering from cancer and learn about various treatment methods to be able to conceive a better treatment option or cure for cancer. Most research scientists pursue an undergraduate and a graduate course in their chosen field, followed by which they pursue a Ph.D degree. Regardless of what stream it may be, a research scientist will help uncover interesting patterns and findings. Finally, research scientists not only uncover new things, but also validate both new and old practices, principles and processes to establish the most factually accurate ones, making them a highly invaluable part of the society. If I ever get a chance to become a research scientist, I will love to become one, but I am not sure if my current level of dedication, hard work, and intellect can even come close to that of an actual research scientist.
