Model Answer 1:

Well, its is quite unfortunate that most people remain indoors most of the time these days and do not take part in outdoor activities, but I am not the one and I spend healthy time outsides, enjoying some outdoor activities and for this, I visit my locality park on regular basis.

Where is it located?
There is a park which is huge in size, not too far from my home, so in the evening I visit this place with my friend. We are in habit of visiting this park for some time and now what we do here, I would like to tell you for sure.

What activities you can do at this place?
First thing is that this part is huge in size were there is a jogging track so firstly where we go there, we do jogging for a while. It really helps us to warm up our bodies and after that we do some other activities.

Why do you like this place?
This park has some gym equipment installed and visitors can enjoy or use them without paying any charge.

So, the best thing about visiting this park is that we don’t have to join any gym and pay the membership fee, we can do some light exercises and do some workout without paying a penny.

Another thing that we do here is that when we visit the park, we always carry out rackets and shuttles because we both are badminton players. As playing is the most effective way to stay fit and active so we play badminton for around 30 minutes here.

How often do you go there?
Yet another interesting thing about this park is that free yoga classes are offered. As on weekend, a yoga instructor visits this park and anyone who visit can take the yoga classes.

So, on weekends especially, when we are free, we also visit there in the morning time and do some yoga.

It really helps me to improve my concentration and helps me to feel mentally relaxed. So, this way, we do so many different things and spending time outdoors, enjoying the lush green grass, the beauty of flowers, sitting under the shade of trees is really health boosting.

So overall, I can say that this park is one place where I go to enjoy some outdoor activities.

Model Answer 2:


  • I belong to Chandigarh and there are many places in my city where one can go to play sports or do some outdoor physical activity.
  • Some of them include international cricket stadiums, hockey stadiums and government run sports complexes, where one can play a variety of sports like lawn tennis, badminton, squash, swimming, etc.

Where is it located?

  • Today I would like to talk about the Lake Sports Complex which is located near Sukhna lake, and I go to play Lawn tennis over there.
  • This Complex was earlier known as Lake Club and was set up in 1961 making it one of the oldest sporting clubs in the city.
  • It is said to be spread over 10 acres of land and is one of the most popular Sports Centre of our city.

What activities you can do at this place?

  • It is the single largest centre that houses the facilities of gym, squash, tennis, table tennis, billiards, archery, swimming, squash and a hi-tech gym having imported machines and access for using other club facilities.

Why do you like this place?

  • I got to know about the sports club from one of my school friends whose house was just a stone’s throw distance from it.
  • It was because of his reference that I was able to gain membership at the club.
  • People can take monthly, quarterly or annual membership and the charges are very nominal.
  • I have been practicing there for the last two years and I really love playing there.

How often do you go there?

  • I have made it a habit to go there at least 4-5 times a week. Every member gets an hourly slot to play at the club and my slot is at 7 in the evening.
  • I believe that playing sport is a great way to relieve everyday mental stress plus it helps one to stay physically fit as well.
  • Recently an open fitness centre has been opened at the Lake Sports Complex for local sportspersons and members of the club.


  • The fitness centre has the facility of a running track, rope climbing and balancing apparatuses, and other equipment for the usage of players and members.

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 place where you go to do outdoor activities or play a sport”.

1. Are outdoor activities better than indoor activities?
I believe that both types of activities have their own advantages and disadvantages and there are a lot of factors involved behind. For example, in countries with extreme cold or hot climate, it is not possible for people to do many outdoor activities, so they have to rely on indoor sports for staying busy and fit. However, in countries with moderate weather people like to enjoy nature and play outdoors.

2. What outdoor activities do young people like to do?
To be honest young people hardly step out these days as they have a hectic life schedule. But for those who find it suffocating to stay indoors all the time, love to go for walks or morning runs in the nearby parks. Off late lot of youngsters have become cycling enthusiasts and I can see a lot of them cycling especially during the late evenings.

3. Do you think that people who like to do adventurous activities are more likely to succeed?
I don’t think there is any direct link between adventurous sports and success. There are so many successful people in the world such as scientists, politicians, and businessmen who would have never done any adventure sports activity. In fact, I hardly know any adventurous sports enthusiast who became a successful leader.
