Here are some high-scoring Part 1 model answers for the Speaking Test that was shared by a student from Italy. The answers show a good way to respond to these questions.
Part 1 (Interview)
1. What is the weather like in your hometown?
I would say that the weather is very pleasant there, we get mild winters with occasional rain and hot summers moderated by the ocean breezes. It’s a great place to live or visit, especially if you like warm temperatures year-round!
2. Do you have a favourite season?
I absolutely love springtime. I used to love summer when I was younger, because it was the longest break we had from school, but I found that as I got older, spring became my favourite season.
3. Why is this season your favourite?
I love spring because the weather is finally starting to get nicer. The flowers start blooming, the sun comes out more often, and it’s not as cold outside. It’s a great time to go on walks and enjoy nature.
4. How often do you check the weather? Why?
I check the weather every day, sometimes multiple times a day. I’m a very weather-sensitive person and need to be prepared for all kinds of possible conditions. I know that some people find it obsessive, but it’s just part of being conscientious and taking care of myself. I’d rather be safe than sorry!
5. Have your plans ever been affected by the weather?
Yes, my plans have been constantly affected by the weather. Most recently, I was supposed to fly to Europe for a vacation, but my flight got cancelled because of the snowstorm that hit the east coast. I had to reschedule my flight and lost a lot of money.
