Model Answer for IELTS Speaking Part 2 Topic:
Describe a photo that you remember well.
You should say:
What is in the photo
When it was taken
Who took that photo
And explain why you remember it so well
(What is in the photo) Everyone at least takes a photo once in their lives, and of course, I am not an exception. However, there is one photo which imprinted my memory with so much to remember is the group photo in Malaysia with the Petronas Twin Towers in the background. My cousins and I went on a trip to Malaysia last year and we paid a visit to Malaysia’s biggest pride – the Petronas Towers. The towers used to notch up world’s tallest building before witnessing the strong rise of other skyscrapers. The Kuala Lumpur’s top tourist attraction and most photographed landmark is located in the heart of the capital city, surrounded by a cluster of the smaller, but by no means small, skyscrapers. People say that you haven’t been to Kuala Lumpur if you haven’t got a picture with the towers.
(When it was taken) The photo was taken on our trip to Kuala Lumpur in 2017’s summer. It was one of the most memorable trips I have ever gone on in my entire life. We had to wake up at 3 am so that we could get a ticket to the Sky Bridge when it flung free tickets to early birds. Of course, it was not easy whatsoever as one of the members of our group passed out for more than 15 minutes at the base of the towers before coming round.
(Who took that photo) We all wanted to be in the photo. Therefore, we had to get other tourists to take photos for us. This is what made that photo so special.
