Model Answer 1:

Well, not everyone is blessed with creativity, but I know few people who have extremely creative and innovative minds. 

Who he/she is? and How do you know him/her? 
Here I am going to talk about my science teacher Mr. Singh whom I believe to be the most creative person I have ever come across. 

I feel lucky to be his student during my school days. Science is one of the most difficult subjects, and a vast majority faces difficulty understanding the subject, but our science teacher is truly a genius who always had novel ideas to teach the students. 

What creative things he/she has done? and Explain why you think he or she is creative? 
He used to emphasize/accentuate more on practical learning than theoretical, and for this, he frequently took us to science laboratories for practical learning. 

In addition, there are some topics related to physics that are highly impractical to comprehend by reading books only and to clear such concepts he used to teach us with the help of technology.

For example, by playing videos and showing 3D images. In fact, it was also a fun way to learn for students, and we never felt bored in his classroom. 

Last but not least, he also used to request school management to organize some excursions to keep the fun element in education. 

He was such a genius and brainy person that he always had innovative ideas to bring improvements to the school. 

I had a wonderful experience of learning at school, especially the science subject, and the credit goes to the science teacher Mr. Singh.

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 creative person whose work you admire”.

1. Do you think you are a creative person?
Yes, I am a creative person, but all my creativity is for myself only. Every day I creatively mix and match my old dresses and make them look new.
I also like to make pencil sketches out of my imagination and create different characters.

2. Is it good for children to learn arts?
Yes, it is very good for children to learn arts. Arts bring out their creativity and break the monotony of tough academic studies. Arts also keep children in touch with their culture and tradition.

3. What kind of jobs require people to be creative? 
I think all jobs require people to be creative. If people are not creative, then their job may become dull and boring after just a few days. If any job has to be done over and over again, then some element of creativity has to be added to it. For example, an engineer needs to think of new ways to do things; the plumber needs to learn new things every day to make his work better and simpler, a carpenter needs to learn new ways of doing things that can add grace to his work, a teacher has to bring up innovative methods to teach so that children don’t get bored.

4. Do you think leaders need to have the creative ability?
Yes, I think leaders need to have creative ability. If they are not creative, people then stop following them as they would appear boring to them, but if they add creativity to their work, talk, and way they do things, they will keep having followers.
