Model Answer 1:

Introduction:
Well, sports play a crucial role in everyone’s life as we all play one or the other game. It can be indoor or outdoor. Apart from playing, watching sports is also extreme entertainment, especially when it is live.

Honestly, I’m more into playing rather than watching. My favourite game Is football and I’m a die-hard fan of Messi. I’ve seen his performance in numerous live matches that telecast on TV.

What it was? and When you watched it?
But here I would like to talk about a football match which was organised last year by our local council to encourage more youngsters to play. Actually, I was a part of the team yet I was not able to play that match due to an injury.

What it was like?
Therefore, I watched it sitting in the stands. The experience was really unbeatable. As it was like riding a roller coaster. There was so much energy in the crowd, people were shouting to cheer up their players. If I talk about the match the competition was too tough between both the teams but at last, we lost by a margin of one goal.

And how you felt about it?
Moreover, It was amazing to see both the team members hugging each other to show the sportiness and celebrated the victory very positively. At last, prize distribution was the best part, as the players who performed well were awarded with trophies and incredible gift hampers. Man of the match won a bullet bike after which he was at cloud nine.

Conclusion:
So this was a match that I watched live and it was a really unforgettable experience.

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 live sports match that you have watched”.

1. Do you prefer to watch live sports or watch it on TV?
I prefer watching sports on the TV. I think the Televisions have improved so much over the recent
times that the experience is the same as watching it live. Moreover, the luxury of sitting in the comfort of one’s house cannot be matched.

2. Why do some people like to watch live sports?
I think watching sports live is much more about spending quality time with friends and family. People go there to break the monotony of everyday life and do something different. For some, it is also about the possibility of meeting or getting an autograph from their favourite sportsperson.

3. What kind of sports do Indian people like to watch?
Indians are crazy about many sports like hockey, football, but I think nothing can come close to the popularity of cricket. I think nearly everyone watches cricket and many play it also. In fact, many Indians in foreign countries also play cricket even though the game isn’t popular there.

4. Do you think competition is good for students?
Certainly, I think competition makes us students work harder. Life without competition would be very boring. Moreover, the growing population means that competition is only going to increase in the future, so it better for students to learn to handle competition from early childhood.
