IELTS Holiday vocabulary

You probably know the meaning of individual words like ‘flight’, ‘tour’ and ‘view’. However, the key to showcasing your advanced English is to show you are able to use these individual words in combination with other words to form set phrases and expressions.

Read the following IELTS-style questions and answers below and pay attention to the phrases in bold. Use the ‘Definitions’ section at the bottom of the page to check the meaning of any phrases you don’t understand.

Part 1-style questions

Examiner: What kind of holiday do you like?
Miguel: I try to avoid tourist traps … I like to get away from it all and prefer going somewhere off the beaten track … last year I had the holiday of a lifetime … a two week wildlife safari in Kenya.

Examiner: What do you like to do when you’re on holiday?
Anna: I enjoy visiting the local places of interest … I like to go sightseeing and always sign up for guided tours as it’s a chance to be shown around and take photographs … one of my hobbies.

Examiner: Do you have many tourists in your country?
Amy: Yes … we have a lot of holiday resorts along the coast that are popular with tourists … most people come on package holidays and stay in one of the many hotels and self-catering apartments.

Part 2-style task

Describe a beautiful place you once visited. You should say:

  • when you went to this place
  • where it was
  • who you went with

and say why you liked it so much.

Sally: A few years ago I went on a long weekend to the Lake District in the UK … it’s a very popular holiday destination in the north of England … I went on my own and had a wonderful time … I stayed in a youth hostel and met some really nice people … but the most memorable thing about the holiday were the breathtaking views … and lovely picturesque villages … it can get very busy with hordes of tourists so I decided to go out of season in the autumn … the weather was fantastic and the shops were full of local crafts … a really great holiday … it’s certainly not the kind of short break for someone looking for a busy nightlife but if you want to relax in the middle of stunning landscape I would certainly recommend a holiday to the Lake District.

Part 3-style questions

Examiner: What do you think has led to the growth in the tourism industry?
Miguel: It’s much easier and affordable to travel now … nowadays you can get cheap charter-flights or all-in packages … to somewhere near or to a far-off destination.

Examiner: How do people tend to choose a destination?
Anna: The Internet is a great source of information and high street travel agents are still very popular … that’s where I like to go to get holiday brochures for the place I’m interested in.

Examiner: People sometimes say flying is the most glamorous form of travel. Do you agree?
Amy: I’m not so sure really … flying can be quite boring … queuing up at the check-in desk … going through passport control … sitting for ages in the departure lounge … then the flight itself can be quite uncomfortable … no … I’m not sure I agree.

Some people think that in the modern world we are more dependent on each other, while others think that people have become more independent.
 Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

People have different views about whether we are more or less dependent on others nowadays. In my view, modern life forces us to be more independent than people were in the past.

There are two main reasons why it could be argued that we are more dependent on each other now. Firstly, life is more complex and difficult, especially because the cost of living has increased so dramatically. For example, young adults tend to rely on their parents for help when buying a house. Property prices are higher than ever, and without help it would be impossible for many people to pay a deposit and a mortgage. Secondly, people seem to be more ambitious nowadays, and they want a better quality of life for their families. This means that both parents usually need to work full-time, and they depend on support from grandparents and babysitters for child care.

However, I would agree with those who believe that people are more independent these days. In most countries, families are becoming smaller and more dispersed, which means that people cannot count on relatives as much as they used to. We also have more freedom to travel and live far away from our home towns. For example, many students choose to study abroad instead of going to their local university, and this experience makes them more independent as they learn to live alone. Another factor in this growing independence is technology, which allows us to work alone and from any part of the world.

In conclusion, while there are some reasons to believe that people now depend on each other more, my own view is that we are more independent than ever.

Speaking Fillers

Speaking Fillers

در زبان شناسی، Filler کلمه یا صدایی است که توسط گوینده به کار می رود تا به مخاطب اطلاع دهد که لحظاتی برای فکر کردن به موضوع گفتگو صحبت خود را متوقف نموده است، اما هنوز صحبتش به اتمام نرسیده است. زبان های مختلف انواع متفاوتی از این صداها دارا هستند.

پرکاربردترین Filler ها در زبان انگلیسی صداهای /uh /ʌ/، er /ɜː و /um /ʌm هستند.

در میان قشر جوان اما Filler هایی مانند “Like”، “you know”، “I mean”، “so”، “actually”، “basically” و “right” متداول ترند. رونالد ریگان رییس جمهور سابق آمریکا به استفاده از کلمه ی “well” به عنوان Filler و باراک اوباما به استفاده از کلمه ی “…look” به عنوان Filler شناخته شده اند.

همچنین، گاهی از Filler ها برای پر کردن فضای خالی میان صحبت هایمان استفاده می کنیم. مثلا هنگامی که مدتی نسبتا طولانی در حال صحبت هستیم، در میانه ی صحبت هایمان نیاز به اندکی درنگ و جستجو برای یافتن لغات مناسب داریم، در چنین مواقعی سکوت می تواند نشان دهنده ی ضعف ما باشد. این فضای خالی را توسط کلمات و عبارت هایی با نام Gap Filler پر می کنیم. این عبارت ها می توانند با معنا و یا بدون معنا باشند.

به شما زبان آموزان توصیه می نماییم که برای بالا بردن توانایی خود در هنگام صحبت کردن و نشان دادن تسلط خود بر زبان انگلیسی از Filler ها استفاده نمایید. مثلا عبارتی مانند “… Oh, let me see” در هنگام صحبت کردن درباره ی مسایل پیچیده یا طولانی، به راحتی به شما فرصت می دهد تا به انتخاب کلمات مناسب و فکر کردن درباره ی موضوع صحبت بپردازید.

Fillers in conversation (used only in speaking):

um, uh, yeah, I mean, I guess, you know, ok, oh, so, well

Usage of Gap Fillers:

  • Tell me.
  • Tell me something.
  • Don’t tell me.
  • Wow!
  • If you say so…

  • Do you mean to say?
  • Do you know what I mean?
  • Well!
  • You see!
  • You know…
  • I know.
  • I see.
  • Oh! I see.

When choosing a job, the salary is the most important consideration. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Many people choose their jobs based on the size of the salary offered. Personally, I disagree with the idea that money is the key consideration when deciding on a career, because I believe that other factors are equally important.

On the one hand, I agree that money is necessary in order for people to meet their basic needs. For example, we all need money to pay for housing, food, bills, health care, and education. Most people consider it a priority to at least earn a salary that allows them to cover these needs and have a reasonable quality of life. If people chose their jobs based on enjoyment or other non-financial factors, they might find it difficult to support themselves. Artists and musicians, for instance, are known for choosing a career path that they love, but that does not always provide them with enough money to live comfortably and raise a family.

Nevertheless, I believe that other considerations are just as important as what we earn in our jobs. Firstly, personal relationships and the atmosphere in a workplace are extremely important when choosing a job. Having a good manager or friendly colleagues, for example, can make a huge difference to workers’ levels of happiness and general quality of life. Secondly, many people’s feelings of job satisfaction come from their professional achievements, the skills they learn, and the position they reach, rather than the money they earn. Finally, some people choose a career because they want to help others and contribute something positive to society.

In conclusion, while salaries certainly affect people’s choice of profession, I do not believe that money outweighs all other motivators.
