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 person you met at a party and enjoyed a conversation with.”.

1. Under what circumstances do you meet new people, and when do you communicate with people you don’t know?
I think I meet new people mainly when I am travelling by public transportation or at parties. I think I communicate when I find someone interesting and I want to know more about them. Also, I communicate when I come know to know that I share an interest with that person.

2. What topics do you discuss with new acquaintances?
I think it can be anything I am interested in, which is in fact quite broad. I love talking politics, sports, coffee, movies, tv shows, video games, fashion products. I sometimes also talk about studies but that’s rare.

3. What topics are not suitable for discussion?
I think there are very few things, which I find unsuitable. Firstly, I don’t like talking about money or how much people earn. In India, its quite common to talk about salaries even when we meet someone the first time, but I don’t find it suitable. I also don’t feel its appropriate to talk about religion.

4. What’s the difference between chatting with friends and new people?
Firstly, I think I am much less reserved with friends. There are very few topics, I don’t talk about with friends. Secondly, the conversation gets much more personal and detailed with friends. For example, I have talked about mundane things like what I ate last night or what time I woke up with my friends. Finally, I don’t mind discussing embarrassing stories with my friends, but I would never do that with strangers.
