Animals / IELTS Speaking task 1

Updated: Oct 4, 2022

1. Do you like animals?

For the last ten years, I like animals, yes. I think I began to understand them better. In my youth, I did not understand animals and, rather, was afraid of them.

2. What is your favourite animal?

It's hard to choose between cats and dogs. When I come to my students, to the place where they live, their dogs and cats equally like to meet me, they approach me with friendly and affectionate attention, I respond to them with mutual friendliness. It is very nice and I like them all.

3. What do you like about animals?

I like to understand the animal, it communicates without words, only with the help of feelings, something close to human intuition and emotions, it is interesting to me.

4. Are people in your country fond of animals?

Some people in my country definitely fond of animals, yes, they are almost members of their family. Other people are probably more rational, too busy, I think, to pay attention to animals.

5. Have you ever kept a pet?

Yes, I have. In my youth, I kept a little dog, and later I picked up a little kitten. But I had a dynamic lifestyle, and I found it difficult to keep animals.

6. Why do some people keep pets at home?

I think in our, too rational, days, people lack the feeling that a close living creature trusts them and likes them as they are. People feel lonely and need to care for someone, and this is why they keep pets at home, I think.
