IELTS Speaking Sample Part 3 - Public Transport

Updated: Nov 27, 2023


1. What benefits does public transport bring to the world?

Well, I think there are a couple of advantages to utilizing mass transit . The first one is that it can reduce traffic congestion by providing people with an alternative to driving, which helps save their fuel and maintenance expenditure . Apart from that, public vehicles are usually more fuel-efficient than private cars, which means they would emit fewer pollutants into the air and contribute to improved air quality.


2. Do you think the government should make it a rule for people to use public transport?

Although it’d be great for the authorities to encourage the use of public transport, I honestly don't think it should be made mandatory . Well, I mean, such a rule could easily be seen as restricting people's freedom of choice and disrupting their daily routines . Instead, I think the government should focus on improving the public transport infrastructure and making it more affordable so that the general public will be more likely to use it voluntarily.


3. What qualities does a driver need to have?

I guess that any safe and responsible driver needs to be aware of their surroundings and anticipate potential hazards . So, in other words, they should be attentive to other vehicles, pedestrians and road conditions to ensure the utmost safety while driving. Moreover, it's also important for drivers to remain calm and concentrated when facing challenging situations such as driving in harsh weather conditions or through narrow and winding streets .
