  • Hi.

  • I am Jessica Beck from IELTS Energy Podcast and the online IELTS course Three Keys IELTS.

  • Today I want to give you some more Sample Answers for Speaking Part Three.

  • I get asked a lot by students for example answers and model essays and such, and I know

  • you guys learn a lot from hearing examples and reading models, so today we're going to

  • do some Speaking Part Three Sample Answers about the topic of health.

  • The topic of health is very common in IELTS, guys.

  • Reading, listening, speaking, writing, it could pop up anywhere, so we're going to follow

  • our strategy for answering Part Three questions, which is a very simple three-step strategy

  • just like our course Three Keys IELTS, where all the strategies are simple and easy to

  • follow, and they all get you the highest scores.

  • On Speaking Part Three, when you are answering, you should try and follow this general strategy

  • of giving your opinion right away.

  • Follow that with specific reasons and examples, very specific examples and details, guys.

  • Remember, always use your own experience.

  • Go to your own experience.

  • It's ready in your mind.

  • Don't think about it too much or it ruins your fluency score.

  • Then, after the very specific information we give, we want to have a short one-sentence

  • conclusion.

  • That way, the examiner knows you're finished and can move on to the next question.

  • All right?

  • Let's see.

  • How would I answer these Speaking Part Three questions?

  • These are real questions that you could get on the exam, guys, so pay attention, write

  • them down, practice them on your own.

  • All right.

  • The first question is would you say that people in your country are generally healthy?

  • My answer would be, honestly, it depends on what part of the country you're talking about

  • because, if you're talking about the middle of the country, some people call it the Bible

  • Belt, I think, in general, and I don't want to be mean here, but I have been to that part

  • of the country, and I did notice there was a higher likelihood of obesity in that part

  • of the country but, however, if you're talking about where I live in the Pacific Northwest,

  • people are really healthy here, especially in Portland, Oregon.

  • People bike commute to work every day.

  • People are out walking their dogs all the time.

  • Although we do love to eat, we love to eat healthy food here for the most part.

  • My answer to that question is, depends on what part of the country but, in my part of

  • the country, definitely yes.

  • All right, so you can see that I immediately directly gave my opinion.

  • I used interesting vocabulary to describe my details, and I did draw those details from

  • my own experience, and then I gave a quick one-sentence summary.

  • I want you to notice that, in my answers, I am not going on and on and on.

  • That is not what the examiner wants, okay?

  • You should try and keep your answer, I would say, like a minute, more or less, because

  • the examiner does want to ask you three or four questions, approximately, in Speaking

  • Part Three, so allow him or her to do that.

  • A next question might be are there any recent changes in your country that have impacted

  • people's health?

  • My answer would be, well, honestly, I think there are some positive recent changes in

  • the way that people are eating and viewing food.

  • There's a big movement, especially, as I said, in my healthy part of the country, in my neck

  • of the woods.

  • There's some movement towards eating locally.

  • This movement is called the locavore movement.

  • You know carnivore and herbivore, right?

  • This is the locavore.

  • This is where people are trying to eat food that is grown and made locally.

  • That way, we cut down on the transportation costs, the transportation, which impacts the

  • environment in negative ways, noticeable negative ways.

  • Yeah, definitely, I think just that alone, that by itself is encouraging people to eat

  • fresh food and healthier food, so that's a very positive recent change.

  • All right.

  • Again, I follow that three-step strategy.

  • I would recommend, guys, that you go back to the beginning of this video and go ahead

  • and listen to my answers and write them down, and I want you to highlight the way I link

  • my ideas because, for that coherent score, you have to have linking words the examiner

  • will notice, right, and will see, "Oh, this person can organize their ideas well."

  • I also want you to notice that I do work in some idioms, like I say, "My neck of the woods,"

  • right?

  • That's a cool idiom to say, "My area," so please listen to this.

  • Watch this video a couple times.

  • Listen to my answers, write them down, and then practice your own answers.

  • All right?

  • For more tips, and awesome tricks, and advice, and examples, please visit our website ielts.allearsenglish.com.

  • Also, please check out our course with more easy-to-follow strategies to get you the highest

  • score on the exam.

  • All right.

  • Thank you so much for watching.

  • Have a wonderful day.
