Hello to you all!I took the IELTS Academic on the 20th of April, 2017, in London.
– pottery in New Zealand,
health in space (what health problems do astronauts have and possible solutions for them) and
-the last one (the hardest article I’ve ever encountered since I started training for IELTS) about reading emotions, I don’t remember the title exactly, but it was talking about how artists have always tried to capture the personality of a person in their pieces of art, the debate going on around it, modernism and how this current is regarded nowadays.
-Task 1: 3 pie charts with different job fields that English graduates chose first after their graduation in 1992, 1997 and 2002.
-Task 2: some people think that in order to solve traffic and transportation problems people should be encouraged to live in cities rather than in suburbs or at the countryside. To what extent to do you agree or disagree?
-Part 1: are you working/are you a student?, where do you come from, do you like your hometown, where do you like to go in your hometown, do you think you’ll ever leave your hometown. What do you do with the photographs you take when you travel, do you take a lot of photographs, do you have a lot of pictures with you when you were a child
-Part 2: describe a place you like to go in order to relax (where it is, when you go there, what you do there, why is it a relaxing place for you)
-Part 3: do you think leisure is important during work or study? how can a employee relax at work? do you think some people find stress useful? has technology affected the way people relax? should the government invest more in leisure objects for people such as laptops, tablets?
This are all the questions I can remember. All in all, it was a wonderful experience, very well organized and with no surprises. Invigilators were extremely nice (still doing their job obviously!) not to mention the speaking examinator, who was great and really as you say Atul, someone that does not want to see what you don’t know but what you know.
