IELTS Speaking Part 1 Topic Sport
Questions and Answers
1. Do you like sport?
Oh yeah, I do as it’s the only way for me to release stress and improve my general health. What is more, it’s my favourite way to make friends and enjoy social interaction. So, definitely yes.
2. Do you play any sports?
Not as much as I should. I’m really busy with my job these days, so I don’t get the chance to do as many sports as I would like. I try to play basketball on Saturdays for a couple or hours and I occasionally play golf.
3. Have you played basketball for long?
Since I was about 10 years old. I remember playing a computer game about basketball when I was about 10 and it made me obsessed with the sport. From then on I played basketball every day until I went to university and then other things took priority, but I regret not maintaining it because it was something I loved doing.
4. Do you watch sport on TV?
Football is my favourite sport to watch on TV. I’m terrible at football but I love watching it on TV, especially big games like the Champions League. I follow Liverpool Football Club and so do a few of my friends, so we normally go to the pub every weekend and watch whoever Liverpool are playing and a few of the other big games in the Premiership
5. What sports do people in your country like to play?
Oh, I would say all kinds of ball games. People in my country are fond of football because it has simple rules, can be played just with a ball almost anywhere, is very entertaining to watch and play and very short which makes viewers actively involved in the game from the beginning to the end. There are also a lot of basketball and volleyball fans.
6. How do people in your country stay fit?
We are blessed with beautiful countryside and a nice temperate climate so most people either go running or walking. Lots of young people play field sports, but more and more people are joining gyms. Gyms have really took off recently as people worry more and more about their appearance. I think it has much more to do with how good people look rather than actually keeping fit.
7. Is it important for children to play sports?
Definitely. Sport not only keeps them healthy, but it also teaches them discipline and keeps them out of trouble. For instance, in my school the kids who were dedicated to sport also achieved the highest grades in school and went on to good universities where they continued to work hard.
8. What kind of exercises do you do?
Well, I mainly do aerobic exercises such as running or swimming in order to improve my cardiovascular fitness and increase endurance, and pi I ates or yoga exercises to improve my flexibility, build muscle strength and perfect my posture.
9. What kinds of exercises are popular in your country?
Oh, I think aerobic, strength and stretching exercises top the list of most popular sport training in my country. I think it’s because altogether they help people burn fat, build muscles, improve flexibility and perfect heart and lung heath.
10. Do you like extreme sports?
Oh yeah, I do. Extreme sport help me overcome my fears, expand my personal boundaries and develops my self- affirmation as a person and helps me handle physical threats in life.
11. Who is your favourite sports star?
Oh, undoubtedly, it is roger Federer. He is the greatest men’s tennis player of all time. I love the way He plays tennis: the movement, the timing everything bg is just perfect. I also admire his impeccable manners and remarkable patience in dispensing his many obligations in everyday life. For me, roger us memorable and never to be repeated
