IELTS Speaking Practice: Read Book

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


Speaking Part 1:

1. Do you have many books at home?

As I am an avid reader, I have spent all my savings on books. That is why you can easily find a large book collection arranged neatly in the book case in the living room of my house.

2. How often do you read books?

Reading has become my habit, and I read books on a daily basis. A book of any kind is a must-have item in my bag when I go somewhere as it can be a good activity to make good use of waiting time. Also, it is hard to imagine a day without something to read before bedtime.

3. What was your favourite type of books as a child?

Just like other kids, comic books were my favorite when I was a little girl. I still remember how excited I was when I flipped through the colorful pages and got lost in the world of my favorite comic characters.

Speaking Part 2:

Describe a book you have recently read

  • What kind of book it is
  • What it is about
  • What sort of people would enjoy it
  • And explain why you liked it.

Sample Answer

Speaking Part 3: Follow-up Questions

1. What kind of books do children like?

I’m not sure, but I guess they enjoy fairy tales and folk stories since the plots are usually quite bright. For example, most kids read Cinderella and love the book very much. I guess it is because it has beautiful characters and a happy ending.

2. What should parents do to encourage their children to read books?

It is necessary that parents encourage their children’s reading activities at an early age. This can help kids develop a habit of reading for pleasure. Also, parents should not be too controlling over the books their children read letting them read what they love will keep them more interested in reading.

3. Why do adults still have to read books?

I think because people can learn a lot from reading books, as books not only are stress-relieving but also enrich one’s soul and enhance one’s knowledge, and learning is a process of a lifetime. For that reason, people of all ages still read books.
