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 street market in your city”.

1. Do you like shopping online or going out for shopping?
I do a mix of both. Sometimes I shop online if I get a good deal. Many sites such as Amazon, Flipkart and Snapdeal have good discounts.

2. What is the difference between shopping with friends and shopping alone?
It’s fun to go shopping with friends. You can discuss things and take each other’s advice. When I go with my parents, they cannot guide me about the clothes, which are in trend.

3. What are the disadvantages of shopping in a big mall?
In big malls, nobody guides you about any product. You have to use your own judgement. Secondly, you cannot get things on credit, which a small shopkeeper in your town would give you if he knows you. Another disadvantage is that mostly big malls are outside in the suburbs, and so it is only possible to go by your car.

4. Why do people like to buy branded products?
Brands are popular because they provide quality, good after sale service, and also provide status.

5. In your opinion are big discounts real or just an advertisement?
Big discounts are real in the case of branded products, but in most cases, they are just an eyewash. Sometimes, outdated or defective pieces are sold by giving big discounts
