Practice Test: Topic Accommodation

IELTS Speaking Part 1

Do you live in a house or an apartment?

At the moment, I am living in my parent’s house, but in future, I’ll be moving to University, and live on campus in a double room.

What kind of accommodation do most people live in your city?

It depends on where they live. For instance, people who live in rural areas usually live in houses while those who inhabit in urban areas would stay in apartments because there is not enough place for building houses.

IELTS Speaking Part 2

Describe a house or an apartment that you would like to live in.
You should say:
+ What kind of accommodation it would be
+ where it would be
+ who would live there with you
+ and why you would enjoy living in this place

Sample Answer

Since I was a young boy, I have always dreamed of my future home. Today I would like to share with you about the ideal place that I would love to live in. It seems to me that the urban environment is perfectly suitable for my personality and my needs, and living in an apartment block in a metropolitan is the best choice for me.

Owning my own home means that I could do whatever I like, I have constantly wanted to make my dreamed apartment come true as soon as possible. Over there I would live with my future family which would consist of my two children, my wife and me. The apartment will be in a high floor such as the 15th or above, and of course, my place will have to be spacious, which could be about 200 square meters that means my kids could have enough space to play. There might be a living room, a kitchen, three bedrooms and one balcony. My ideal apartment should be equipped with mod cons, so when it comes to cleaning the house, we will find it easier.

Also, I would put tables and chairs out in my balcony so I could sit in, have a cup of tea with my wife and experience the city’s view. This I believe will be a memorable memory for my beloved family.

IELTS Speaking Part 3

Is it better to own your own home or to rent?

I would go for rented accommodation because of its potential advantages. The first benefit is that people who rent a house will not need to take out a mortgage and just pay rent in advance, which normally costs them a small amount of money. Another benefit is this house will not be their permanent address, which means they can move to anywhere they like.

What are some of the pleasures involved in making a home for yourself?

The important thing is they can enjoy finding their own home, then another thing is owning their own home, which means that they could do whatever they like. For example, by doing up their property, they can organize and decorate their house in a way that suits their expectation.
