IELTS Speaking Part 1, 2 & 3 Topic in 2018: Daily Routine & Sample Answers

IELTS Speaking Part 1 Topic:

When do you wake up?

Well, I’m a morning riser and I wake up at about 5 o’clock. Getting up early not only makes me feel refreshing and productive but it also prevents my skin from having wrinkles.

What is your daily routine?

Well, in the morning, I get up early to have a light breakfast and hit the gym at about 8 a.m. After one hour of workout, I leave the gym club and go to the supermarket to buy food to make lunch and dinner. In the afternoon and evening, I go to my workplace and start working from 14.00.pm until 21.00.p.m.

What part of the day do you like most?

Personally I enjoy late night when I come home from work and everything is filled with dim gray light. To me, it’s a great time to kick back on the bed to have a chit-chat with my roommates, surf the Internet, listen to music, or watch a favorite movie.

Do you think it is important to have a daily routine?

Yes, it definitely is. A proper daily routine will help you arrange your activities in the most sensible way. Without a daily routine, people usually do things spontaneously, which could waste their time and reduce their work efficiency. I think those who are disorganized can gain more benefits from creating a daily routine.

What’s the difference of routine between you and your teenager’s times?

Well, I can say that there’s a huge difference between my life back then and my present life. You know, when I was a teenager, besides focusing on study, I have much free time to pursue my interests like watching films or listening to music. As opposed to my life now, my routine and time management has become stricter. Since I graduated from the university and began working as an English teacher, I’m so occupied with my work that I have little leisure time for my pastimes.

Do you like to plan what you will do each day?

What do you usually do at this time of day?

Do you usually do the same things at the same time each day?

How do you organize your study time?

Do you ever change your plans?

What’s your favorite time of the day?

What do you want to change in your daily routine?

IELTS Speaking Part 2 Topics:

  • Describe an occasion when you got up very early.

You should say:

  • When it happened
  • Why you got up early
  • Who you were with
  • And explain how you felt about getting up early.

Sample Answer:

Actually, I’m a night owl who usually gets out of the bed quite late, ranging from 9 a.m to 10 a.m every morning. However, there are some occasions that I was forced to get up early, and I still remember the last time that I had to get up early.

In September last year, I was offered the first job in my whole entire life. At that time I was a fresh graduate, thus I had to move to X city to join training sessions at Head Office of the company. Flight ticket was booked by my supervisor. Unfortunately, she had no choice but to book an early flight for me at 6a.m. As I received the ticket information, I was quite anxious about whether I would miss the flight or not. I set off the alarm in my phone, asked my mother to wake me up in time. Finally, I made it, though I felt so sleepy that I fell asleep immediately when I was on the plane. It was such a nerve-racking experience as it was the first time I went on a plane, dealing with all stuffs at the airport in the early morning on my own. Luckily, there were some kind people willing to help me with my suitcase, which made that experience less harrowing to me.

To be honest,As a youngster, I tend to of the habit staying late at nights and get up late, too. However, I think that I should change this custom to get a better health.

  • what you do then
  • how long this part of a day lasts

and explain why this is your favourite part of the day.

Sample Answer

This is an interesting topic for me to talk about. I would like to share with you about my favorite part of the day.

Well, to be honest, I am not an early riser because I often stay up late at nights, that’s why I can’t enjoy morning much. In contrast, evening is the part of the day that I love the most.

To me, evening starts at the time my working day ends, 5pm everyday. After that, it’s my choice to do anything I want. There is no fixed things for my evenings, I just keep an open mind and do what I want.

For example, in some evenings, I would ask my friends out for a meal, a movie or a coffee. We can have time to share with others anything we want, or just to keep us updated about others. In some other evenings, when there are some interesting seminars, I would definitely join and listen carefully to speaker’s sharing. When I am moody or tired, I would prefer a private time in my own room, turning on soft music, and reading books or just let my mind free. To some people, the way I enjoy my evenings is wasteful as they believe that I can do more useful things. However, to me, those kinds of evenings help me to refresh myself & recharge my energy, thereby making my life more enjoyable.

I strongly believe that we should take a certain amount of time off, doing nothing, do what we like and take a look back. It can help us to discover more things about life and ourselves. This kind of exploration is extremely important for us to understand well about ourselves, thus, can set up a good way to develop our strength as well as minimize our weakness. As a consequence, it helps boost up our performance in study or work. For this kind of activity, evening is the best option.


  • early riser: someone who often get up early in the morning

Ex: He is an early riser, thus, he can enjoy mornings.

  • keep an open mind: to let sth go with the flow, don’t have a fixed plan

Ex: I just keep an open mind of what to do when I go on holidays.

  • Ask someone out: to invite someone to go out (to something or some place) [on a date].

Ex: Finally he asked her out for a movie.

  • take time off: be duty-free in a certain period.

Ex: If possible, I would take time off to go on holiday.
