2. Do you watch sports on TV?

Football is my favourite sport to watch on TV. Since I a huge football fan, I have barely missed football matches of my favourite team including away games and home games. I prefer to spend my Sunday night staying at home to see a match with my father.

3. What is the most popular sports in your country?

In my opinion, I believe football is the most common sport in my country. This is because it is not too hard to take up sports. In terms of watching a football match, this can bring so much fun to the viewer, not to mention that the sports does not cost much money to play and watch, which allow people to find it easy to approach.

Band 8.0 Sample Answer 

Since I was a little boy, I began to fall for football, and until now I have ever stopped loving sports. At the very beginning, I first came to know football when my father took me to watch a football match in which our local team played against their biggest competitor. Although our team lose that match, I knew that they had trained hard to prepare for the big match, also during the match, they showed their determination to win that game. All of this made me love our team and to start to fall in love with the interesting sports. After that, I always followed our local team and asked my father to buy season tickets, then I would never miss any games of my favourite team.

Apart from watching football, I am also into playing it. Thus, whenever I have spare time, I prefer to spend on playing football with my friends, which is not only easy for us to take up but also give us a sense of enjoyment. Though it makes me sweat a lot anytime I play with the ball, I love the fact that I always have a great time with my buddy. In addition, I was proud that by playing football regularly I can get into shape, then my relatives compliment on my fit body each time we meet.

Finally, I believe that does not matter that how busy I will be in the future, I will constantly spend a part of my time on football, and my love for football will never be faded.

IELTS Speaking Part 3

1. Should people be encouraged more to take up a sport?

Definitely yes, the most important reason is that playing sports can be regarded as a recreational activity. Indeed, while in the modern world individuals have to suffer from a high level of stress at work or school, so this activity can allow people to reduce stress significantly and feel comfortable. Another reason is anticipating that sports will allow people to socialize, which means they can meet and make new friends.

2. Which sports do you think is best for people who aren’t used to physical activity?

In my point of view, this kind of people won’t prefer strenuous exercise, so brisk walking can be a great choice because sports do not require a high level of fitness. Also, going on a brisk walk regularly help people to keep fit and have a good effect on their health. People who aren’t used to physical activity can also choose swimming, which is easy to take up and after go swimming, they can feel a sense of freshness.

Sounding natural and confident during the IELTS speaking test is consequential to your overall performance. Thus, when answering questions related to sports during IELTS, make sure to use the right vocabulary in your responses. Hopefully, this article will help you improve your sports vocabulary and how to use it for the IELTS exam.
