IELTS Speaking Part 3 : Follow up Questions

Here some examples of follow up questions that you may asked during your speaking part 3 by examiner related to cue card “describe a company where you live that employs a lot of people”.

1. Is it easy to find a job in India?
In this competitive era, it is tough to find a job in India and other countries. People do their best to get the job which increases the level of competition.

No, definitely not easy. India is a diverse country and has a population of more than 120 crores. Obviously, there is a lot of competition in getting jobs.

2. What should the government do if there is unemployment?
well, no work is big or small so government should encourage people to accept the small job if someone offered them and try to give the best performance to achieve higher position. Moreover, the government should motivate people to do self-employment.

The government should encourage self-employment and also set up cottage industries, so that more and more people can be employed. MNCs should also be encouraged, so that the
problem of unemployment can be mitigated.

3. Is a high salary important?
It varies from person to person. Some people accept the job because of its higher pay scale; it doesn’t matter whether they are interested in the job. On the other hand, some people are passionate about their work they want satisfaction, so they accept those jobs they want to do, it is ok if they receive a low salary.

Yes, a high salary is very important. Money is of course the most important motivation to work. But sometimes, it is OK to get a job one loves, even if the salary is a bit less.

4. Is it ok to do a job you like with a low salary?
As I said earlier, it depends on the situation and person. Some people accept lower-salary jobs because they want satisfaction. On the other hand fresher’s won’t experience, so they get lower salary job in the starting of their career.

If I have to choose a job with a slightly high salary, but I don’t like it, then I wouldn’t do it and choose the job of my liking. However, if the difference in pay is very high, then I would go for that job even if I don’t like it much.

5. Are there many big companies in your country?
Yes, there are many big companies in India, and some are establishing in the coming time. India is a developing nation, so developed country’s companies launch branch in developing nations.

Yes, there are. India is a fast developing country. There are many Indian companies, which are very big such as Tata, Mahindra, Godrej, Reliance, Onida, and so on. There are also many multinational giants which have opened branches in India, such as Samsung, LG, Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai, and so on.

6. How can a small company grow big?
Many things are required to make a small organization big such as men’s power, good strategies, offer excellent customer services, use social media, and, most importantly, money.

Small companies can do so in many ways. They can work hard, employ skilled workers, focus on quality, and employ good marketing strategies.

7. Should big companies donate more to charities?
More businesses, large and small, are discovering advantages of supporting charitable causes because doing so can improve their companies. Moreover, the company will receive charitable activities, and you will also gain numerous social benefits when you give back.

Yes, they should. I believe that anyone who has enough should help the needy on humanitarian grounds. Many big companies help NGOs and NPOs. This is a win-win situation for both. When they get publicity for their charity work, they are getting advertisement for free.

8. Should big companies be punished more seriously if they break the law?
The law is equal for all, so it doesn’t matter how big or small a company is. So I think the government should give strict punishment to the company for breaking the law.

No, they should not. Law should be the same for all – big as well as small companies. Usually, big companies have big connections. So, they try to get away with their wrongdoings. This also should not happen. Punishment should be equally serious for all law offenders.

9. What are the good things about working for a big company?
Benefits: Lots of Perks One of the apparent benefits of working for a large company is many perks. For example, most large companies can offer a range of insurance options. Opportunities Decision making High lifestyle
