IELTS Speaking Practice: Changes

In this post, we discuss IELTS speaking topic “Changes ” with sample questions/answers.


Speaking Part 1:

1. Are you open to change?

Changes are constantly happening. Yes, I am open to change. In our monotonous life, it is the only thing that keeps us going. Getting habituated is human nature. Thus every time with the emergence of new changes, they tend to get habituated with.

2. Are there any changes in your city or hometown?

Yes, like I have grown, my city has also developed. What used to be a small stall selling fast food has turned into a restaurant today. The kaccha roads are reconstructed to pakka roads. All the grounds, where we used to play as a child, have turned into multiplexes.

3. How have the changes benefited you?

Changes have always benefited us even if we think otherwise. With the advancement of the city, no matter how sad you become to witness your childhood memories change, I have always looked at the greater picture. A trip from my workplace to my hometown used to take 3 hours and now it hardly takes 1 hour. Thus it is an advantage.

4. What do you plan to change next year?

I have nothing in mind specifically but I want to change and renovate my home this coming summer. On the contrary I want to make some changes in my CV, like learning a new coding language and a new foreign language.
