IELTS Speaking: paraphrasing examples

 Here are some easy examples of paraphrasing, using five sentences from last Friday's speaking lesson:

  1. I was never much of a singer =
    I didn't really like singing when I was younger
  2. I was always a little shy =
    As a child I wasn't very outgoing
  3. This happens once a week or less =
    I do this perhaps once every week* at most
  4. I prefer to listen to a variety of music =
    I like all kinds of music
  5. Singing contests are hugely popular at the moment =
    Singing competitions seem to be all the rage**

* We could write "every 7 days", but this sounds a little less natural
** all the rage = an idiomatic expression meaning "very popular"
