IELTS Speaking Part 1 Band 9 Sample – Topic: Sleep

1. How many hours do you sleep every day?
 It depends on how heavy my workload is on that day. But I usually try to get around 7 to 8 hours of sleep so that I can always be wide awake and work effectively for the whole day.

2. Is it necessary to take a nap every day?
 Yes, I believe that people need to have a snooze after lunch because after eating, we can start to feel sleepy and lose focus. Therefore, a quick nap can bring our energy back and help us become more productive after that.

3. Do old people sleep a lot? Why?
 Actually, I think elderly people generally have the same amount of sleep as young people. But the thing is they often find it hard to fall asleep, so they go to bed earlier than young adults, which makes us think that they sleep a lot.

4. What time do you usually go to bed?
 To be honest, I’m a night owl. I usually go to sleep at around 1 or 2 a.m. I know it is not a healthy habit but if I can’t get all my work done, it’s very hard for me to get to sleep.

5. Do you always have a good sleep?
 I’m a busy person. I go to work from 9 a.m to 9 p.m, so at the end of the day, I often feel extremely exhausted and sleep like a rock.
