When I was little, my grandmother’s home was my second family as I came to visit her every day without fail. Of course, I love her so much, but another reason why I loved coming to see her was her little puppy. My grandmother got the puppy from her neighbor as far as I can remember. The first time I saw it, I fell in love with the puppy’s adorable eyes. I named it Jerry because I like Jerry Mouse. Since the day Jerry came to me, my life was turned upside down.
As I went about my normal routine, I decided to leave aside at least one hour a day to play with Jerry. Also, I tried to change my daily schedule to fit Jerry’s. Everyday after school, instead of going home and watching TV, I headed to my grandmother’s house and took Jerry outside. Jerry was an outgoing and a little bit scrappy puppy so whenever we went out, many people would come and greet her.
As many other dogs, Jerry loved to chew so I needed to help my grandmother put everything out of her reach. It was a bit annoying at first, but then when our home became “puppy-proof”, nothing happened with our stuff. I even joined the local dog lovers community at my town and attended meetings every other week.
To be honest, my life was completely reversed for the better because of Jerry. Even though Jerry left us a long time ago, I still miss her so much and really want to get another cute puppy like her in the near future.
IELTS Speaking Part 3: Animals
1. In what ways are humans different from other animals?
Humans and other animals vary primarily in our capacity for complex reasoning, our use of complex language, and our capacity for problem-solving. Only humans possess the capacity for creation or the capacity to experience joy or sorrow. Humans can perform many of these tasks because of our highly evolved brains.
2. What are the main roles of animals in your country?
I have to say that animals play a crucial role in our society. We have many mythological animals that you can see in ancient tales. They are part of our religious beliefs and perspectives on life. For example, people’s longing to be liberated from constraints and limitations is reflected in the dragon. The lunar calendar’s 12 months are also represented by pictures of the 12 zodiac animals.
3. Do you think modern farming methods are cruel to animals?
I believe so. In an effort to increase productivity, animals are mistreated and crowded together in factory farming. Factory-farmed animals are jammed together in barren pens, crates, or cages in order to save space, which prevents them from engaging in typical behaviors like nesting or foraging. As a result, the animals frequently hurt each other to relieve their boredom, irritation, and stress.
