IELTS Speaking Sample Part 3 - Getting Lost

Updated: Nov 27, 2023

1. How do people react when they get lost?

I think people would react differently when getting lost. Some often become anxious and start to panic. Their heart rate may also increase and they may have trouble thinking straight. Others, however, may become more relaxed and take a more laid-back approach.


A good sense of direction is often attributed to a combination of factors. Some naturally possess good spatial awareness and an intuitive understanding of their surroundings. Besides, others also develop their navigational skills through familiarity with places and by studying maps.

3. What kinds of problems do old people have when they get lost?

They may have difficulty recalling or processing information, which can lead to disorientation. Moreover, memory impairment can hinder their ability to navigate unfamiliar surroundings. Physical limitations such as reduced mobility or stamina may also make it harder for them to search for help or walk long distances.
