PART 3 – TIP: Answer + Explain + Example
Let’s talk about human rights
Many countries and people advocate for equal rights among all people, men, women and children. Is this realistic for society to achieve?
I do believe that certain fundamental human rights should be the same for all people regardless of age, ethnicity or color, such as freedom of speech, freedom of health; however, some other rights are definitely not possible to permit for everyone such as driving a car. It would not make sense to let a five year old behind the wheel of a truck.
TIP *** When you are considering your examples, DO NOT say, “for example” or “for instance” often (as the examiner may cut you off), think about smooth relevant examples that just fit into context.
Freedom of speech is very important to many societies around the globe, what are the positives and negatives of this liberty?
I believe that the liberty of citizens to express themselves either in verbal or written form is advantageous because it leads to positive change and people feel that their voice matters in the evolution of their society. However, this right can certainly be misused which can lead to civil unrest. There are many cases of negative propaganda in the past that has resulted in people’s suffering.
*Reminder – Always record your IELTS speaking practice, listen back, identify mistakes and make corrections!
How has the internet and social media influenced human rights in the 21st century?
The world wide web and social medial platforms, like facebook and Instagram have had a massive impact on human rights since the turn of the millennium as people are more connected than ever before. It is now very quick and efficient to express views on certain issues as well as to organize large groups to affect pressure for change. This can be observed in hot topics like allowing women to vote in every country around the world.
*TRICK – You want to have clear emphasis in your voice – for the IELTS, it is a good idea to be a bit melodramatic, about 5 to 10% more than your usual. You want to sound enthusiastic while maintaining emotional control. *This is especially true if you are doing the speaking via video-chat.
Let’s talk about rules and regulations
What are some important rules that are common in many countries?
Some of the universal regulations that can be noted anywhere in the world are traffic laws, such as stopping at a red lights, safety regulations, and codes of conduct, such as not harming other humans or stealing from others. These laws are in the interests of both individuals and society, so that we can all enjoy a better quality of life.
Some people believe that the death penalty is necessary for extreme crimes such as murder others disagree, what is your opinion and why?
