IELTS Speaking B& 9 Sample Answer:

So I’d like to talk about a journey that I took when I was a little kid. Together with my family, I went khổng lồ the Gr& Canyon, which is a popular tourist attraction. It’s a national park in the United States. And I know we traveled by oto. Umilimet, I can’t rethành viên how long the trip was but I’d guess it was about a week. And the reason we went on this trip? Well, it was probably because my parents wanted lớn take me for a nice trip, a nice family trip.

That’s a common thing to vày, um, with some families. But the reason I remember this journey so well is not because the Grvà Canyon was amazing. I’m sure it was. But there was something else that happened while I was on this journey. And that was…on the trip…on our way lớn the Grvà Canyon, um, we stopped by a book store. And, you know, I liked reading books a little bit when I was a kid so um, my I think my mom recommended this particular book to me. And I don’t rethành viên what it was right now but we bought the book because she said “Oh this is a good idea. You might want khổng lồ read this book.”

And so, she gave sầu it to me and in the oto, probably for about four hours or five sầu hours, instead of looking out at all of the scenery & at all of these new places we were driving to lớn, I just had my head in my book. I don’t think I looked up at all and I just read the book from cover khổng lồ cover for lượt thích four or five hours…just sitting in the oto in the baông xã seat instead of looking at whatever beautiful nature they wanted me to lớn look at. I know they gave sầu me a little bit of a hard time about it, but, hey, you know, um, it was a memorable journey for sure (be)cause even to lớn this day I still rethành viên reading that book in the car và really enjoying it & having a really good time with it. So yeah, that’s my story.

Is it ok to use transitional phrases when answering each question such as “My initial point would obviously be …” or “Moving onto the next area of when I traveled I remember …”? Does it sound lượt thích a native speaker?
