IELTS Speaking Part 2 – Q.31

One more IELTS Speaking Part 2 question. This one seems to be a little more difficult at first glance because of the keywords used – event, change, life, good way – but if you think about it, this is just another in a series of questions about events. 

Some of the events you can use to answer such questions are – graduation (from high school or university), admission (university), getting a good job, getting married, having a baby, moving to a new city or country etc.

 

Describe an event that changed your life in a good way. You should say:
          What is that event?
          When did it happen?
          How this event changed your life?
and do you think that it changed your life in a good way?

Remember, the examiner is not interested in how interesting the lesson is, but how well you can describe it and what vocabulary you can use to successfully answer each part of the question.
