IELTS Speaking Part 1 Topic TV Programs Questions and Answers
What kind of TV programs do you like?
Although I am not a big fan of television shows, I prefer watching comedies or thriller movies to kill time and keep myself entertained. I believe that comedy shows help relieve stress, reduce the intensity of strong emotions, and keep one’s distance from adversity and hardships. On the other hand, a thriller keeps you glued to the television until the climax is reached. As a result, both types of tv programs are exciting to watch.
Do you often watch programs on TV or your smartphone?
As a photographer, I spend a lot of time out of town, travelling, so I watch crime thrillers on my smartphone because it’s portable and convenient. But sometimes, when I’m at home, I keep my smartphone aside and watch TV programs with my family.
Do you like watching the same kind of TV programs all the time?
Of course! I like watching the same kind of thriller shows because nothing can beat the excitement of watching a fantastic thriller movie. The unexpected twists and turns keep me glued to the television or my smartphone. Furthermore, it is fascinating to see how mysteries unfold in a thriller movie.
Do you talk with your friends about the TV programs that you watch?
Well, as for my friends, all of them have different interests. Some enjoy watching daily soaps, while others are hooked on crime thrillers or horror films. However, their opinions vary about these TV shows. Therefore, we do not discuss what we watch. Whenever the cricket premier league is on, we debate over which team will win the match.
