IELTS Speaking Sample Part 1 - Topic: Concentration

Updated: Oct 18, 2023



"Why do you need to be focused?"

Staying focused is crucial as it helps me to get all my assignments done and as a result I won’t have to struggle to meet the deadlines. Of course, I have to admit that sometimes I can be easily distracted by something else and find it kinda hard to concentrate entirely on what I’m doing.


"What might distract you when you are trying to stay focused?"

There are too many distractions, to be honest, when I’m working at home and trying to focus, you know, from the cold calls attempting to sell me something like life insurance or a flat from a housing estate to all the trivial household chores I still have to do.


"What do you do to help you concentrate?"

Well, it’s really difficult, but normally I try everything that may prove useful, like staying away from my mobile phone or locking myself in my own private study so as to avoid any external distraction and throw myself body and soul into my work.

"Is it difficult for you to stay focused on something?"

As I already said, yes, as I’m more of a person who tends to be distracted and influenced by what’s happening around me. That’s why an absolutely quiet place would be ideal for me if I need to stay completely focused on a task for hours on end.
