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 an area in your home where you feel relaxed”.

1. Do you think exercise is important for mental and physical health?
Definitely, physical health is directly dependent upon exercise. With today’s sedentary lifestyles it is nearly impossible to be healthy without exercise. Similarly, when we exercise, we feel more confident about our looks and this makes us much more social, which in effect is good for people mental health.

2. Why do people feel stressful all the time?
I think there are many reasons for the increasing stress in our lives. One is the growing competition, which has reduced job security. So people are always stressed about their work and job. Secondly, today people have very high expectations. When we expect much more than it is possible, we are bound to be stressed. Finally, stress is relieved by talking to friends but as people are spending less and less time with each other. As a result people feel stressed all the time.

3. Do you think there should be classes for teaching young people and children how to be relaxed?
Yes, I think it has become essential in today’s time. The growing rate of mental issues and depression among youth are evidence that it is very crucial that we teach young people how to deal with stress. I think it can be done by having relaxation classes in school itself. Moreover, if they learn to deal with stress at a young age, they can deal with it much better when they become adults.
