IELTS Speaking Part 1: Opinions/ideas

Topic : Opinions/ideas

1. When children should have their own ideas/opinions?

→ Well, I suppose that children should be encouraged to form their own ideas when they start school. At that time, kids can not always be reliant on their parents so it’s necessary to develop the ability to think for themselves and even make their own decisions in some cases.

2. What are the benefits when children have their own ideas/opinions?

→ An obvious advantage is that children will become more independent. Well, it’s true that there will not always be someone to guide or tell them what to do; therefore, developing their own ways of thinking will gradually help kids find solutions to their own problems later on.

3. What are the responsibilities of teachers to help children develop their ideas/opinions?

→ Well, quite a tough question since I don’t usually spend time with children or teach them actually. But I guess the best way is to ask questions and give prompts or examples so that they can spark ideas themselves. On top of that, teachers also need to encourage them and let them be creative.

4. Do you think children are taught to have the same ideas with their parents?

→ Honestly, I don’t agree with that. You know, there are always differences between generations. I mean, children are influenced by other people rather than just their parents and they will definitely have their own perspective on life. Sometimes, they may come up with different ideas from their parents, so forcing kids to think like adults
