IELTS Speaking Part 1 : Topic Work/Job

Talk about your dream job, future job is a familiar and basic topic in the IELTS Speaking test.

Here are some frequently asked questions about Work/Job topics in IELTS Speaking Part 1

Topic Work/Job

1. Do you work or study?

Well, I’m a fresh graduate. Currently, I’m working as a Chinese language teacher, so I teach for a living. I’ve been teaching for about 6 months now in a famous educational company located in District 1.

2. Is there anything special about your job?

I would say that teaching is a dynamic profession, so it helps me become a more well-rounded person. Besides that, I can meet people from all walks of life. This helps me enrich my life experiences and improve my interpreting skills.

3. Is there another type of job you would like to do?

If I had a chance, I would go for doing business, especially selling stationery items. I love it because I can work flexible schedules without being stuck behind a desk. Moreover, it’s likely that I can earn more money as there is no minimum wage for being self-employed.

4. Would you recommend your current job to other people?

Absolutely. Teaching Chinese has gained in popularity in recent years due to globalization, so it is a financially-rewarding career. I would recommend this job to those who want to make great contributions to our national education system and economy.

5. Why did you choose your job?

Well, like I told you before, it’s a financially-rewarding job so that I can cover my living expenses like utilities. Moreover, the demand for learning Chinese has been growing. For example, big city workers who wish to get pay rises tend to sign up for Chinese courses.

6. What do you like about your job?/ Why did you choose to do that type of work?

One of the perks of my job is that I can get performance-related pay rises. This motivates me to work harder to gain recognition from my boss. Moreover, I have a chance to work with excellent and dynamic colleagues who help me become a more well-rounded person.

7. What do you dislike about your job?

Honestly, I have to work very tight schedules, so I don’t often get enough sleep. It’s hard for me to spend time on other recreational activities such as working out or painting. I’m thinking of asking my boss to reduce working hours so that I can be more energetic and productive.

8. Is there some other kind of work you would rather do?

If I had the chance to do a job swap in the future, I would love to become a psychologist. You know, I’m addicted to psychology. Reading a lot about it helps me understand my students’ behavior and figure out appropriate approaches to help them overcome their psychological barriers in learning a new language. I also want to help people suffering from chronic depression and anxiety disorders.
