Here are some common questions about family in the IELTS Speaking Test Part 1.
Tell me something about your family.
What do you like doing most with your family?
Who are you close to in your family?
In what way is your family important to you?
Examiner: Tell me something about your family.
Candidate: Although I live abroad now, my mum’s family is from Paris and my dad’s family is from Toulouse. So I’m from a very French family. I would say I come from quite a small family, really. For example, I just have one older sister and four cousins, but it’s true that my extended family is fairly big.
Examiner: What do you like doing most with your family?
Candidate: I like having nice long meals with good food and good wine, and a few jokes for dessert!
Examiner: Who are you close to in your family?
Candidate: In my family? Well, I’ close to my Uncle Jacques. He’s a chef. He’s hilarious, always telling jokes, and he’s very enthusiastic about everything he does. We spent a lot of time together when I was growing up. In fact he helped to bring me up.
Examiner: In what way is your family important to you?
Candidate: My family is everything to me. They are my best friends; they support me when things aren’t going well and when things are going well. I know they’ll always be there for me, no matter what.
