IELTS Speaking Part 1 topic: sports


Here are some common questions about the sports in IELTS Speaking Part 1

  • What do you do to keep fit?
  • Are you good at sport?
  • What sports do you play?
  • What is the most popular sport in your country?

Here are the sample answers:

Examiner:       What do you do to keep fit?
Candidate:      I go to the gym twice a week. I don’t really enjoy it, to be honest, but it’s an easy way to keep fit. I mainly do cardiovascular exercises, rather than muscle building.

Examiner:       Are you good at sport?
Candidate:      Not really, but I try my best. I prefer individual sports to team sports because if I do badly in a team game I always feel I’m letting everyone down.

Examiner:       What sports do you play?
Candidate:      I go kite-surfing sometimes. I enjoy it because it’s so exhilarating. I can’t go often, though, because there’s rarely enough wind where I live. I might take up another water sport instead.

Examiner:       What is the most popular sport in your country?
Candidate:      I’d say the most popular sport is football, as in most countries. Most people have a favorite team who they support through thick and thin. The teams are often English ones, and Manchester United is the most well-know.
