IELTS Speaking Part 1 Topic In a hurry
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
1. When was the last time you did something in a hurry?
The last time I was in a hurry was the time I rushed to work one morning because I woke up late. The night before that I had a birthday party with friends till midnight so the exhaustion after that led me to oversleep in the morning.
I guess it was last month when I was finishing a project at university. I was in tearing hurry because the deadline was night at hand but there was still too much work to do. If I had worked hard long before the final dtg, I wouldn’t have failed to meet a project schedule.
2. What kind of things would you never do in a hurry?
Well, I think I would never finish work for my customers in a hurry, otherwise it would cause lots of errors that might lead to a terrible loss for them. That is not acceptable.
Well, I never drive a car in a hurry for reasons of safety. I also never eat hastily because I take good care of my health. And, of course, I never make irrevocable choices or important decisions when I am pressed for time because this can result in financial losses and damage.
3. Do you like to finish things quickly?
No, I don’t stand finishing things too soon because I would probably make mistakes without careful and considerate work.
4. What helps you to finish things quickly?
I think the thing that plays a key role and helps me accomplish my goals swiftly enough is quitting being a perfectionist and trying to be flexible in managing things. One more feature I consider extremely important is making a plan and sticking to it.
5. Why do people make mistakes more easily?
I guess it happens because when people are in a hurry, they are least equipped to handle problems because they are not in the mindset to notice the little things. As a result, they leave some parts of a puzzle resulting in one or a series of mistakes.
