IELTS Speaking Sample Part 1 - Puzzle

Updated: Oct 18, 2023



1. Did you do puzzles in your childhood?


Absolutely! To be honest, solving puzzles has always been part and parcel of my life since I first received a rubik’s cube for my 6th birthday. You know, it helped me a lot to unwind and sharpen my logical thinking when I was younger.


2. When do you do puzzles, during a trip or when you feel bored?


Well, I guess I’d mostly solve puzzles when I’m feeling bored as a way to pass the time . By contrast, I rarely find enough time to do any puzzles on a holiday trip because I’d usually spend most of it bonding with my family and friends.


3. What do you like doing, word puzzles or number puzzles?


Well, I think word puzzles would hold more appeal to me as they really help exercise my brain as well as widen my vocabulary range. Needless to say , number puzzles must be much more challenging for me because I’m terribly bad at mathematical problems.


4. Do you think it is good for old people to do puzzles?


Absolutely! According to some scientific findings I have read, playing puzzles for seniors can nurture their mental well-being and strengthen their short-term memory . Without a doubt , such improvements will significantly help to prevent some popular diseases among the elderly such as depression or dementia .
