His work has been an inspiration for me and has motivated me to pursue a career in science. I also find his work fascinating and would love to learn more about his theories and research.

Model Answer 2:

Introduction:
Well, being a student, I have to study long hours and I really enjoy it when I get the company of someone while studying.

Who is that person?
For this reason, I prefer to study with my best friend Karan and there are numerous reasons why I like to study with him.

He is not only my best friend and among one of the most intelligent students in the class but he is my neighbour as well. So, after school, we often get together in the evening and we study as long as we wish together. Generally, we prefer to study at his place because there is no kind of disturbance and there is a special study area where we sit and study together.

Why would you like to study with him/her?
Now the best thing why I prefer to study with Karan is that he is really good at mathematics in which I am pretty weak but at the same time, I am really good at science so we really complement each other. This way, we study together and help each other improve in these subjects another thing about Karan is that he is a very focused person.

While studying he does not get involved in any unnecessary gossiping at the same time he never makes use of his mobile phone while studying, unlike my other friends who can be quite disturbing. One more thing that I would add here is that Karan’s father is a well-learned person so while studying if we have any kind of trouble we can easily approach him and he always is more than ready to help us and clarify our doubts.

What will you study?
In fact, he is very much into reading books for interest and there is a kind of library at his place and we often make use of those books for references as well. Last but not least, when we study together for long hours his mother is always there to serve us coffee, some snacks or dry fruits to keep us up and running. I always enjoy studying with Karan.

Conclusion:
Especially during the examinations when we sit and study till midnight. So, considering all these factors I must say that Karan is the person with whom I love to study.

Model Answer 3:

Introduction:

  • I normally study alone as I find it hard to study with someone else.
  • However, there are times when I don’t feel like studying and it helps if someone can motivate me.
  • Moreover, there are subjects like history, which I find really boring to study alone.
  • In these cases, I do prefer studying with someone else.

Who is that person? and Why would you like to study with him/her?

  • I had a classmate, Yash in 10th standard and many of my friends told me that he was a very good study partner.
  • So if I do get a chance, I would like to study with him.
  • He has many unique qualities.
  • First, he has a very good grasping power, so he was always able to understand things really quickly.
  • He is also very patient. I have heard from friends that he can sit and explain things for hours.
  • One of my major problems in studying has been my inability to memorise facts and figures and he is very good with mnemonics, which I feel like can be really helpful for me.
  • I remember in school days, he made a mnemonic for the first twenty elements of the periodic table and it became so popular in the school.
  • Everyone used it and that’s why perhaps my entire class found chemistry very easy.
  • That’s one more reason I would like to study with him. He is willing to share his knowledge.
  • I have heard him saying many things in class that the best way to increase one’s knowledge is to share knowledge.

What will you study? and Conclusion:

  • At the moment he is doing masters in economics in Canada.
  • He is at the same college I am interested in attending.
  • Hopefully, I would get a chance to meet him there and study something together.

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 would like to study or work with”.

1. What kind of people do you like to study or work with?
I like to study or work with people who are intelligent, cooperative and helpful.

2. Do you think managers can be friends with their subordinates?
Yes, they can. But the subordinates must realise that such a friendship can be affected if they become complacent at their work well because of their friendship.

3. Which one is more important for you at work, development in work related skills or the recognitions from your supervisor?
Both are equally important for me. Development in work skills is very essential to progress and get promotions at work. Recognition from supervisors gives me the impetus to work even harder.

4. Should children be allowed to choose whom they want to sit with or it should be decided by the teacher?
In the primary classes, it should be decided by the teachers, because the teacher will know better which students could be more helpful for each other if made to sit together. In senior classes, children can figure out for themselves about whom to sit with.

5. Should children be involved in management activities of the school?
I believe that they should be. They feel important and they learn confidence. They can voice out their problems and help the school authorities find answers for them.

6. How should one behave in office to get along well with others?
One should behave nicely. One should be polite to others and cooperate with them. One should not do leg-pulling of other colleagues.

7. Is it important for children in school to get along well with others?
Yes, it is very important for children to get along well with others. If children learn how to get along with their peers at school, they will learn how to get along with others in life when they are older.
