Here are some common questions about the weather in IELTS Speaking Part 1
- Tell me about your country’s climate.
- What’s your favorite kind of weather?
- Does the weather influence your mood?
- is it worse to feel too hot or too cold?
Here are the sample answers:
Examiner: Tell me about your country’s climate.
Candidate: We have an extreme climate. Our winters are absolutely freezing, and our summers are boiling hot. That means that the people, the houses, the transport system, everything needs to be prepared to cope with every kind of weather.
Examiner: What’s your favorite kind of weather?
Candidate: What I like most is hot, dry weather. I love being able to sit outside on a balmy evening with a drink, rather than cooped up inside like you are in the winter.
Examiner: Does the weather influence your mood?
Candidate: Yes, it certainly does. It’s the rain that influences my mood the most. I hate it when it’s raining – it makes me feel so down. It’s hard to go out, without getting soaked to the skin, anyway. And the sky is so dismal and overcast. It’s miserable!
Examiner: Is it worse to feel too hot or too cold?
Candidate: Well, I suppose if it’s too cold you can just wear more layers, but nevertheless I prefer to be too hot. At least it means the weather is good, and you can always go for a swim to cool down. What I really can’t stand is being cold and wet. That’s the worst combination and it makes me worry that I’m going to catch a cold.
