2. Bài mẫu Introduction Yourself trong IELTS Speaking Part 1

What type of photos do you like taking?

I often experiment with my camera and mobile phone camera and that’s whyI like to take a wide range of photos that include nature, people, gift items, sky, river, flower and so on. However, I am inclined to take photos of people. Their genuine smile, sad expression and sometimes bewilderment make the photograph worth cherishing.

Do you play any games?

Yes, I really enjoy playing badminton most of the time. Football was, and still is my favourite sports, but I can’t manage time to practice football in the evening. Also, I am a great fan of chess and I often visit a few of my friends who are also passionate about playing chess. Sometimes, a single chess match between me and my friend takes multiple days to finish!

Is there anything you don’t like about your hometown?

Generally speaking, I’d have to say that I’m not really fond of the weather. I really can’t stand the summer months. I think this is because it is always humid, so it makes me feel quite hot and sweaty.

What do you usually do at the weekend?

Well, it is contingent upon how I feel. If I’m exhausted after working all week, I prefer to do something relaxing like chilling out on the sofa with a good book or watching movies on Netflix. But, if I feel energetic I would rather do something more exciting like going out and taking some photographs or going shopping with my friends.

Do you prefer to read a book or watch TV?

Oh I like them both so it’s hard to choose only one. But I guess that if I had to, I would rather watch a movie and the main reason for this is because not only there is a great storyline but I can also enjoy the acting skill of famous actors.
