IELTS Speaking Part 1: Band 8+ Topic Voice

1. Is your voice different to when you were young?

I’m not sure but I don’t think there have been any significant changes in my voice. Since I was a small girl, I’ve always had this high-pitched and soft voice. To be honest, I don’t like my voice because it doesn’t sound “mature” at all.


2. Is your voice similar to that of a family member?

I don’t think so. My parents have heavy local accents from central Vietnam, while I don’t. I guess it’s because I was born and raised in the south. Not to mention that my parents’ voices are much thicker than mine.

3. Do you enjoy recording your voice and listening to it?

I used to feel quite awkward when recording and listening to my own voice, but now, I really enjoy it. Actually, it’s the thing I do every day to become more fluent at speaking English. By listening to my voice, I can easily check my pronunciation, fluency and intonation.

4. Does everyone have the same voice?

Absolutely not. I have never met two people with the same voice, let alone everyone. Voices vary from person to person and it will be different in pitch, volume or tone.
