IELTS Speaking Part 1 Reading

1. Do you like to read books?

Being voracious, I find immense interest in reading books. I developed this habit in childhood, and books were my best friend.

Since childhood, I have had this habit of visiting the library to find books of interest. Fortunately, my neighbourhood has a library, and whenever I have free time, I read various types of content.

3. Do you prefer reading books or watching films?

Although video content is emotionally enriching, it cannot match the benefits of reading. Reading is an active activity where your central focus is a must. On the other hand, watching films is a passive pursuit because it allows you to multitask, like ironing clothes, surfing mobile phones, or doing other activities.

4. What was your favourite book or story as a child?

The best story I heard in childhood was of a farmer and his five sons who always used to fight over petty issues. The farmer was really upset and tried his best to convince them but did not succeed.

Then he planned to teach them a lesson, giving one stick each to his sons and telling them to break it, which was an easy task for them.

Afterwards, the farmer gave his sons a bundle of five sticks and told them to break it. His sons tried hard, but they could not break it.

Then, he formally told his sons that unity is important because if they stay united, other people and circumstances will not affect them. However, if they fight each other, they cannot handle the conflicts adroitly.
