n the interest of time, it’s important to make as many notes as possible about an interesting lesson rather than wasting time searching your memory for the most interesting lesson. In all probability, the first memory that pops into your head will either be the most interesting or the most recent – both of which will do. 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.

IELTS SPEAKING PART 2 – Q.15 MODEL ANSWER

Here’s the answer for last week’s Speaking Part 2 question.

I am going to talk about Hindustani and Carnatic music. They’re the traditional forms of music in India.

Hindustani music is prevalent in the northern part of the country while Carnatic is associated uniquely with the southern states. They’re both based on ragas, but the style differs according to the “gharanas” that one trains in. There are also many instruments such as the sitar, the tabla, the harmonium, etc., that are integral to these forms of music.

Neither form of music is widely popular, however, fusions with Western music are becoming increasingly popular. Most commercial singers are trained in classical Indian music to some extent.

Personally, I enjoy both forms of music. Although, I prefer instrumental performances as I have never been trained in classical music and so feel that I cannot appreciate the nuances of a vocal performance.

In case you missed it, here’s last week’s question.
