IELTS Speaking Test : Topic Journey

IELTS Speaking Part 2

Describe an important journey that was delayed

You should say:

  • When it was
  • Why it was important
  • How it was delayed
  • And how you felt about it

Model Answer

I would like to talk about the time when my journey was delayed due to the bad weather.

I can’t remember precisely when it was because I have a terrible memory for dates, but it was several years ago when my besties and I decided to make a 3-day trip to Nha Trang, which is a coastal city in the South of Vietnam.

We booked a flight to Nha Trang. I expected we would arrive in Nha Trang in the afternoon, and then we could enjoy sunny weather and beautiful beaches. However, the weather, unfortunately, is unpredictable . To my great disappointment, when we arrived at the airport on our departure day, it rained heavily and was so windy that our flight to Nha Trang was delayed for 4 hours.

To say we were disappointed is an understatement. We had already checked in, so we had no choice but to stay in the waiting room.

When we finally arrived in Nha Trang, it was quite late. Therefore, instead of sunbathing and swimming in the water, we just ended up staying in the boring hotel and complaining about the unexpected weather.

Luckily, the weather was really nice the next day, and we could enjoy the sun and the beach to our heart’s content .

IELTS Speaking Part 3

  1. Why do people have to travel every day?

Well in general, there are thousands of reasons for us to travel, and it’s impossible to know all of them. Some people have to travel to work or to school every day. Some others just simply go out for a coffee, to see a movie with friends or to visit someone they know.

  1. What problems can occur during people’s daily travel?

There are a lot. Congestion might be the most popular problem, especially in big and crowded cities. Besides, there’s also a chance people may encounter an accident when travelling. There are many careless or even drunk drivers out there and who knows when we’ll bump into them.

  1. Do you think people won’t have to travel to work and instead work from home in the future?

No, I don’t think so. Working from home might be a thing in the future, but it can never erase the need to travel. Doctors still need to be present at the hospital to treat their patients, for example, and it still requires them to travel. I don’t think that we can do some kind of remote operation, not in at least the next 50 years.
