IELTS Speaking Part 1 Topic Accommodation

1. Do you live in a house or an apartment?

I live in a semi-detached house with three bedrooms in a suburb of Manchester. I’ve lived there for just over a year

2. Which is your favourite room in your home? Why?

I don’t really have a favourite room. But if I had to choose, I’d say the living room because that’s where I go to sit and relax

3. Would you change anything about your home? Why / why not?

Yes, I’ve been meaning to redecorate it since I moved in last year. It needs a new kitchen, so that’s what I’d change first

4. Would you like to move to a different home in the future?

Yes, I’d definitely move again at some point if I could afford to. I’d like to live in the countryside, or maybe in a different city or country

5. How is your apartment decorated?

I don’t like lots of over the top decoration, so I guess you would describe it as minimalist. The walls are all white and the furniture is also either white or black. There are very few ornaments or pictures because again, I like to keep things quite minimal and I hate clutter

6. Do you plan to live there for a long time?

I really like where I live but it is really far from where I work in the centre of town. It takes around 45 minutes to drive there by motorbike and in the hot season and wet season it can be really uncomfortable, so we will consider moving closer to the centre in a year or so

7. Do you have a garden?

That’s the best part of where we live, we have a huge garden. It takes around 40 minutes to walk around it. It has a few play parks for the kids, a number of gyms and four small lakes. We are really lucky to have it and I try to go for a walk around it every day, if I have time

8. Are there many amenities?

Not really, because it is on the edge of town. If you want to go for a nice meal, use a swimming pool, go shopping or head out for a drink, you really have to drive for about 30 minutes. That’s the major drawback, but if you are organised and buy everything when you are in the centre of town, it’s not so bad
