IELTS Speaking Part 1 Topic New activities
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
1. Do you like trying activities? Why?
I am very much excited about trying new activities. Anything new or unique gives me a freshness from my daily routine. Personally, I get bored of repetitive things and always looks for a change. They motivate me to do something new which I am very fond of.
2. Did you enjoy trying new activities when you were younger?
Yes. I did. Before I got my job, I hanged out quite a lot with my friends and did exciting activities. But since I started going to work, I haven’t had much time to try new things like I used to.
3. Is there a new activity you would really like to try?
Yes. There is. I’ve been thinking of learning how to ski recently. I have a friend who is really good at it and I will have him teach me some skiing skills when I have free time.
4. Is it good for people to try new things?
I think yes because trying something new broadens people’s horizons and gives their soul a boost. Of course, it’s a bit daunting at first but anyway it is worth doing as it allows people to expand their minds and makes them feel like they are high in the sky. Trying something for the people learn more about themselves and even might help some of them discover unknown talents. It help people break out of a rut and has a positive impact on their personal growth and heath. It also helps men and women vanquish their fears and gives them afresh perspective, which feeds their creativity and increases their confidence. So yeah, its definitely good for everyone.
5. Why are some people afraid of trying new things?
Well, I think, they are, first of all, afraid to be outside their comfort zone opting for those actions they are used to doing. They might also be afraid to fail or feel insecure in the face of the unknown. Some people can just be afraid of changes and have a fear to lose something they already have. Others might not want to try something new cause they do not know what it is like and are worried that the action.
6. What help do people need when they are trying new things?
Oh, first of all, psychological support, I guess. I mean help to deal with various feelings I i ke threat, anxiety, relief as well as simple tips and techniques to effectively manage change- related stress. They also need trust in their ability to pull through and praise even for little accomplishments. Some people may need help to see gains from trying something new cause the benefits can become the key factor which will help them overcome their fears. I also guess some people might need expert guidance to feel safe and secure and not worry about physical or material harm.
7. What are some of the difficulties a person might have when they try something new?
Oh, one of the hurdles people might face is committing mistakes which wi harm them or others in someway. Another one is the fact they can lose interest to what they are doing and become bored, which can trigger some negative emotions and spoil their mood. One more problem I can think of is loss of confidence because it was not as good as they thought it would be, which will discourage them from trying new things and actions for sometime. Well, I guess these are the most significant difficulties people can run into while doing something for the first time.
8. Do you think it’s better to have new experiences when you are young or when you are older?
Well, definitely when you are young cause older people often feel they have already had all experiences they need and do not even take any steps to trying or learning something new. What is more, the older people become, the more tired of learning they get and, as a result, often make the conscious decision to stop learning even though they may not realize it. Older people also need more time to learn new things as they have physical changes such as reduced vision and hearing ability which have an effect on their ability to learn and master new skills. So, no doubt, young age is the best time for new experiences and new skills.
1. Freshness (n) the quality of being new or different
I like the freshness of his approach to the problem.
