Model Answer 1:


Based on my experience, it is simple to succeed when we focus our minds on a goal that we have set and make every effort in achieving it. Furthermore, having a goal gives us the direction we’d like to achieve. It could be a quick or a longer-term goal. In my experience, I’ve achieved a variety of goals, both at the personal and professional levels.

What was it? and When did you make it?

But, I’d like to use this occasion to share a resolution I made for myself two years ago. I achieved it through determination and commitment.

In truth, the manner in which I speak in the present is not the same way that I used to speak previously. I’m not saying I’ve reached complete perfect proficiency on the English language or that I do not make any mistakes. However, thanks to my determination and consistent efforts I’ve overcome my fear of speaking in English. I don’t think I wasn’t good at academics however one thing that bothered me was my fear of being able to speak English publicly. I’m talking about the fact that I was afraid of speaking and often stumbled particularly when I was required to speak with my English language.

What did it take to get it?

My mother tongue is Hindi and throughout my education I was able to communicate in my mother tongue. In addition I felt more comfortable in my own language, and was also thought that speaking in English isn’t my thing (you could say Punjabi, Marathi, Telegu or even.). However at school functions, only I could speak at the stage with English maybe once or twice. However, when I finished my studies and entered the world of competition I realized the importance in being able to speak the English language.

Define how it has influenced the way you live?

Furthermore, if I want to get what I am trying to achieve, having a solid proficiency in language like the English language is essential. So, I decided that no matter what it takes, I’ll dedicate my all into learning this language. In fact, I had to fight for a long time to locate the best English teacher. But , I’ll admit it, thanks to their constant support and with my dedication, it was the only way I was able to master this language through writing and reading. Also they helped me learn to improve my proficiency in public speaking.


I am satisfied that my anxiety around speaking has diminished to a degree that it is the most satisfying accomplishment for me. Furthermore, this accomplishment made me realize that any ambition requires perseverance and a proper time to reach it.

IELTS Speaking Part 3: Follow up Questions

Here are some examples of follow-up questions you could ask during your third part of your presentation by an examiner relating to the cue cards “describe a goal that you achieved, which was set by yourself”.

1. Do they have to write down their the targets or do they just need to keep them in mind?

I like to write down my goals. It’s a way of gaining motivation in the event of a low moment, or when we’re suffering from a difficult day and we want to give up.

2. Do Indian people set goals?

Yes, lots of Indian folks do. I remember on the 1st day of January, a lot of my pals and I discussed our goals for the new year and resolutions.

3. Parents should set goals for their children?

I believe that parents should encourage children to keep their goals However, I do not believe that parents should keep their own goals. Since I believe that if children fail to keep their goals in mind and goals, they’ll not have the same level of motivation as parents to accomplish them.

4. When do teenagers and young women start setting goals for themselves?

I believe there is no set age. It’s all based on the maturity of the individual and their level of responsibility. Certain people start keeping goals from a young age, such as the age of ten or twelve, whereas others start keeping goals after becoming adults. Goal setting is more about achieving self-fulfillment and making self-improvement. Understanding that one can improve themselves sometimes occur early, and other times later.

5. What are some goals that aren’t realistic?

I believe that goals that align with the person’s personality are feasible. If I decide to take on a task that requires me to make an extreme change in my life, I would not be able to do it. This would be impossible for me.

6. Are young and the elderly have different objectives? What do they have in common?

I believe both yes. These are more about making a difference to be alive, while goals for women and men over the age of 50 focus on helping young people succeed in their goals. However, sometimes the goals are similar as an example I observe youngsters and older people trying to lose weight and look sharp in fitness centers.

7. What’s more rewarding than doing something to achieve a goal than realizing it?

I feel that both are fulfilling in their own way. Achieving an objective is about conquering and overcoming obstacles and it’s all about failure and then getting back. The end result is that achieving a goal gives you a sense that your efforts made some difference. If we don’t fight for something, neither the effort that we put into it or the end goal will bring satisfaction.

8. Do you believe that it’s crucial to set real-world goals?

I feel that being Realistic is a good thing, but it also has its advantages and. It’s advantageous in the event that objectives be unattainable it is very difficult to quit and think that it’s impossible initially. It’s also harmful because we don’t try to test our limits. We don’t ever try to push ourselves over. Therefore, I usually create goals that are only reasonable.
