IELTS Speaking Part 1 Band 9 Sample – Topic: Hometown

1. What’s (the name of) your hometown (again)?
Well, I was born and brought up in ABC town, which is located in the Mekong Delta. This place is well-known for its spectacular national park which preserves thousands of bird species, including some endangered ones.

2. Is that a big city or a small place?
I’d have to say it is a very small and rural area. I mean there are only a few people residing there, and you can hardly find any modern facilities like cinemas or supermarkets, like in big cities.

3. Please describe your hometown a little.
If I had to choose one word, it would be “peaceful”. I mean noises, pollution or hectic workloads will never be a problem there. You can enjoy fresh air with no pollution, get up late without worrying about deadlines or deactivate your mind with the tranquility of the natural beauty.

4. How long have you lived there?
Well, I had been living there since I was born until the day I went to college for further education in a big city. However, whenever I take long holidays, I still set aside time for returning to my hometown to see my parents.

5. Do you like living there?
Yes of course, as I was saying, I love the peacefulness in my hometown. You know, I am planning to return to where I was born for my retirement.

6. What do you like (most) about your hometown?
Besides the peacefulness, I am really into the natural beauty of my hometown. You know, almost every spare meter there is covered with greenery. I mean you can hardly find a place without any trees or flowers. This really makes my hometown a picturesque place.

7. Is there anything you dislike about it?
Although I really love my hometown, I have to admit that it is quite boring to live there. There aren’t many types of entertainment. Also, the transportation is not very good. I mean the streets are poorly constructed and there are many holes in them.

8. Do you think you will continue living there for a long time?
Not for now you know. But as I was saying, I will return to my hometown permanently when I retire.

9. Where would you like to live in the future?
In the future, of course my hometown is the number one priority, but I’d still consider somewhere with a mild climate like A or B. I am working very hard now to save enough money to afford a place to live there.
