Band 6,5 Answer by IELTS candidate:
The most interesting animal I’ve ever seen is the hamster. It’s so cute that I cannot resist the temptation to play with it whenever I see it. A lot of my friends keep the hamsters at home and I always want to have my own hamster. Three years ago, I was thrilled that my parents bought me a little white hamster as my birthday gift. I played with my hamster every day during my leisure time.
My hamster lived in a huge hamster cage. I put a lot of wood chips at the bottom of the cage in order to provide it with a comfortable living environment. I also put a tiny bowl, a running machine designed especially for hamsters, and a water machine in the cage. My hamster looked really fluffy, round and lazy. Its everyday life was all about eating, drinking, playing and sleeping. Sometimes, I let it out from its cage and played with it on my table. Hamster’s cute appearance and funny actions always made me laugh.
I felt really happy to see my hamster grow up healthily day by day under my meticulous care. Sometimes, I even thought that it would be great if I could live like a carefree hamster. Since hamster can only live for two to three years, my hamster left me several months ago. I missed it so much and its photos would always remind me of its tiny fluffy body.
IELTS Speaking Part 3
1) Have you seen any TV programs about animals?
Well, I have seen a TV program named ‘The Animal World’. This program is a popular program in CCTV. The host will introduce a kind of animal to the audience in every episode of the program. For example, I have watched an episode about: the lion last month. In that episode, the host has not only introduced the living habits, the different species of the lions; through videos, but also introduced the whole evolutionary process of the lion in detail. So, I think I have benefited a lot from the program, and it makes my extracurricular life more colorful.
2) What should we do to protect endangered animals?
Well, I think that the people in the modern society should protect our environment in order to provide a comfortable home for the endangered animals. We cannot deny that the modern people cut down a lot of trees and exhaust the wasted gas into the air in order to develop the economy, all of which will have a bad influence on the inhabitants of the endangered animals. In this case, I think the whole society should work together to improve the quality of the natural environment in order to provide a comfortable home for those endangered animals.
3) Do you support doing experiment on animals?
Well, as far as I am concerned, I do not support doing experiments on animals. What I want to mention firstly is that those experiments are too cruel for animals. I remembered when I was a student in the university, the students in the medical campus always use little rats and little rabbits to do the experiment in order to test the side effects of the medicine. They injected those chemical medicines into the animal, and some of the animals die of the pain. I think this process is too cruel for the animals. Secondly, doing experiments on animals is a kind of disrespect to lives. Although the animals cannot talk in human’s languages, they have their own thoughts and I think they should have the right to choose their own lives. Based on the reasons mentioned above, I think we should not do experiments on animals.
4) Why do some people refuse to eat animals?
Well, there are several reasons. What I want to mention firstly is that some people think it is not healthy to eat animals. When people eat the animals, they always eat meat as well as some internal organs. However, those stuffs contain too much oil and fat, which is harmful to people’s health. In order to keep healthy, some people refuse to eat animals and prefer to eat the fruits and vegetable. Secondly, some people think that it is too cruel to eat animals. Those people think that killing animals is too bloody and cruel, since the delicious food is based on the animals’ lives. So, I think those are the reasons why some people refuse to eat animals.
5) What would happen when some species disappear on earth?
Well, the reason why some species disappear on earth is that the people do not focus on the environmental protection, and they cut down the trees in the forests as well as contaminate the air in order to promote the economical and industrial development. Their behaviors do a great harm to the animals’ inhabitants and will lead to the extinction of some species directly. It is widely acknowledged that every species plays its own role in the ecological system. The disappearance of some species on earth will lead to the ecological imbalance and is also harmful to people’s life in the long run.
