Introduction:
Well, in my school days I really enjoyed learning English and it was my favourite subject as well, although not many students find learning languages interesting at all.

I particularly remember one lesson that was delivered by my English teacher that I would love to share right now. My English school teacher Mr Singh is one of the best teachers I have ever come across.

He always used to teach in an interactive and very interesting manner to make language learning fun as well as interesting. One day he has to teach us how to write an essay if I am not wrong I was in 6th class when essay writing was introduced to us since the topic was also a little tricky as it was Tourism so most of the students were totally blank about the topic and about how to write an essay but to make this interesting and practical he decided to take us to the school library.

What did the teacher do that made you enjoy it?
Reaching the library he divided the students into groups or and handed us over a few travel magazines and books to read. These magazines and books were full of tourist places photographs and interesting information about them. After spending some time in Library, we were back in the classroom and here Mr Singh shared some interesting and useful vocabulary. He taught us how we should introduce our topic, develop the body and finally conclude it which every student followed very clearly.

In fact, we enjoyed the lesson to the fullest as we got the opportunity to learn a language in a very practical manner. In fact, this lecture is still among one of the best memories of my school days.

Introduction:
Well, in this contemporary epoch, English is not solely the mandatory subject in every institute but also has become a crucial part of every individual’s personality.

Here I would like to talk about an English class I enjoyed. Actually, I’m an innovative person and have the curiosity to learn something new in my life. That’s why I always try to bill my time by learning new vocabulary words to enhance my knowledge.

When did you take the class? and Where it was?
I vividly remember when I was in elementary school. At that time, our English mentor arranged a special class of language literature. As I have been interested in English since childhood, I was agog to attend that class.

What was taught in the class? and What did the teacher do that made you enjoy it?
All the students gathered in the auditorium; In that class, the lecture was about cinderella’s story. The most fantastic thing was that there were six aspirants on the stage who represented the distinct character of the story.

As there was a character of cinderella, the princess and main character of the story, a stepmother and two stepsisters of her, a character by her, a character of a prince and a fairy Godmother.

Finally, the class started, and there was pin-drop silence in the hall than our mentor; cinderella is the most important chapter of our syllabus, so listen carefully.

Honestly speaking, those chapters represented the whole story in an exquisite way as how the princess was tortured by her stepmother and stepsisters. They represented how she came out of the cruel world, and hot marry to a charming Prince with the help of the fairy Godmother.

After finishing a class, all students were talking about the special class. Moreover, I learned a lesson that beauty is a treasure, but kindness is priceless.

Conclusion:
Overall, this was the English lecture that I enjoyed, and it was an electrifying experience for me ever.

Model Answer 4:

Introduction:

  • English is not my mother tongue.
  • I had learnt English in my childhood.

When did you take the class?

  • However, because of a lack of practice, I thought I needed to revise my basics before I took the IELTS exam.
  • So, I recently attended an English class while I was starting my preparation.
  • Actually, when I started the preparation, I got some of my writing tasks evaluated by teachers.
  • My teachers told me that I was making grammatical mistakes and I was making errors in the usage of tenses, especially.
  • At first, I picked up the grammar book by Rennin Martin, but it was too big.
  • I think I read the first two chapters and then gave up.
  • I didn’t have the time or the patience to read the whole book.

When did you take the class? and Where it was?

  • So, I searched for some English tenses lessons on YouTube.
  • There I came across a group of lectures on various tenses on a channel called Learn English with Milly.
  • The lectures had me hooked from the get-go.

What did the teacher do that made you enjoy it?

  • The most interesting part of the lectures was that they made comparisons between the tenses.
  • It was like the lectures had been custom-made to address the problem I was facing because the main problem I was facing was in tenses.
  • The teacher explained everything in detail, and although the lectures were long, I didn’t get bored.
  • I think it was because of the humour.
  • After every few minutes, the teacher said something that grabbed my attention and made me alert.
  • I never felt like I was attending a lecture but rather enjoying a fun conversation with time.
  • I think my English has improved a lot because of those lessons, and I am really glad I stumbled upon those videos.

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 English class/lesson that you enjoyed ”.

1. What are the benefits of learning a foreign language?
There are many benefits of learning a foreign language. Firstly, it helps students academically, as the skills they learn in one language like comprehension and finding out the main theme of a paragraph can also be applied to their language. Secondly, it opens up more opportunities in the future. For example, it can help students pursue higher education in a foreign country. Similarly, a foreign language can help people secure a job in a company, which deals with foreign clients.

2. What are the benefits of being a foreign language teacher?
The main benefit of teaching another language is that the person can enhance their knowledge of the language. I think people learn much more about the language when they teach than when they study it.
Secondly, foreign languages also tend to get paid better and they might also get opportunities to travel abroad. Finally, I feel the language classes have the most diversity in terms of age. I have seen people as old as seventy learning French and German. So, it never gets boring teaching a foreign language as people get to meet different people.

3. Will computers replace foreign language teachers in the future?
I think computers are certainly beneficial in helping students learn a foreign language. However, I do not think computers can replace language teachers completely. Computers can help students improve their grammar and pronunciation but they cannot help students develop or express ideas. Moreover, there are cultural aspects to a language, which can be only taught by a teacher in my opinion.

4. Is grammar the most difficult part about learning a foreign language?
No, I don’t think grammar is the most difficult part as there are certain rules of grammar. I think it is logical and so it can be learnt with practice. However, pronunciation can be very tricky as I find there are no fixed rules to it.

5. Do you think grammar is important in language learning?
Yes, I think grammar is really important in language learning. If the grammar is wrong, the sentence can give out a completely different meaning and it can lead to misunderstandings and embarrassment.
For example, I taught, and I was taught mean completely different things, just the presence of was in the middle – changes the meaning completely.
