IELTS Speaking Part 1 – Library
IELTS Speaking Part 1 (Library)
Do you often go to the library?
- Last year, I frequently studied in the library as the atmosphere was more conducive to learning compared to my noisy dorm room. I spent two to three hours there on weekdays and five hours on Saturdays and three hours on Sundays on weekends.
- During lunch breaks, I usually go to the library to check the latest news since we cannot access our phones for information.
What do you usually do in the library?
- In the library, I mainly read books and complete my assignments.
- Apart from reading books and newspapers, I sometimes meet up with friends there to hang out silently.
- I often go to the library to study, read books and complete my assignments. I find the quiet atmosphere and lack of distractions to be very helpful for my focus and productivity.
- Besides studying, I like to explore the library’s collection of books and other resources. I often discover new authors or topics that I’m interested in, and borrow books to take home and read at my own pace.
- Sometimes, I meet up with friends in the library to work on group projects or assignments. We find that the library provides a good environment for collaboration and discussion, while also allowing us to concentrate on our work.
- Occasionally, I attend events or workshops hosted by the library. These can range from author talks and book clubs to skill-building sessions on things like research methods or technology tools.
- In addition to academic work, I also use the library as a space for personal reflection and relaxation. I might meditate, journal, or just sit quietly and think in a comfortable corner of the library.
Did you go to the library when you were a kid?
- When I was in elementary school, I lived near a library that had a children’s section with books and comics. My mom took me there often, and I had fun.
- As a child, I never had much motivation to go to the library, preferring to read at home for comfort. However, when I was 15, I entered our school library and appreciated the atmosphere and quietness.
Do Chinese kids often go to the library?
- Many parents are now encouraging their children to study harder, especially after the pandemic, so it is common to see kids studying in libraries.
- Public libraries are not very common in China, so parents often take their children to parks or the cinema instead.
