IELTS Speaking Part 1 Topic Primary School Questions and Answers
What did you like the most when you were in primary school?
The memories of my primary school are one of the most cherished memories I have with me. Everything about primary school was fun. The classes never felt boring, my teachers were always kind and helpful and everyone in the class was friendly. The most memorable parts of primary school were the recesses where all of my friends would run out to the playground and enjoy the rides and swings.
How did you go to your primary school?
My primary school was just a few kilometres away from my residence, so reaching there was never a hassle. My parents had arranged a carpool service which helped me and other students from my locality reach school every morning. I had to walk to a certain place where the carpool would pick me up, and I was accompanied by my father every day. However, there were instances where I would ask my father to drop me off at school personally, as I liked the journey to school on a motorbike.
How do you like your primary school?
There are many features of my primary school that have etched my childhood years in my memory. The most significant of those was the games classes that we had every Friday. During games classes, our physical education teacher would divide us into groups and make us play team sports. The most popular team sports that we played were football and Kho kho.
What did you do in your leisure time in your primary school?
During primary school, we used to have two recesses, a short recess for snacks and a longer recess for lunch. Most of the time, the shorter recess was exhausted due to washroom breaks as it only lasted for 10 minutes. It was during the long recess that we had the most fun. Every day as soon as the bell rang, almost the entire class would run out and meet up at the playground. We would always argue on which game to play on that particular day and finally settle on something like catch, tag or statues.
