IELTS Speaking Part 1: ‘reading’ topic
Here are some part 1 questions with example answers. Remember to keep your part 1 answers short and simple.
- Do you like reading?Yes, I like reading a lot. I read all sorts of things, including novels, newspapers, magazines, and online articles.
- Do you usually read for leisure or for work purposes?Well, I have to do a certain amount of reading as part of my job, but I probably read more for enjoyment. I pick up a newspaper most days, and I usually have a book on the go.
- What was your favourite book or story when you were a child?The first book that I remember really enjoying was ‘……….’. It only took me a few days to read because I liked it so much that I couldn’t put it down.
