IELTS Speaking Part 3: example answers

 Last Friday I asked you to try answering these two questions:

  1. Do you think that it's important for people to celebrate their achievements?
  2. Why do you think some people prefer not to tell others about their achievements?

1) I'll answer using an "idea, explain, example" structure:

Yes, I definitely think people should celebrate whenever they are successful in some area of life. I think the celebration is important because it marks the end of a period of effort, and so it's a chance to enjoy the moment, to take stock of what you have achieved, and to share the achievement with others. This is why, for example, universities have graduation ceremonies, which encourage students to celebrate together and to take pride in what they have done.

2) I'll answer using a "firstly, secondly, finally" structure:

I imagine that people have different reasons for keeping their achievements to themselves. One reason could be that some people don't like to show off or draw attention to themselves. Other people perhaps don't value their own accomplishments because they are constantly aiming at even bigger goals. Finally, I suppose that many of us are so busy that we don't stop to savour the moment; maybe we need to slow down and enjoy our successes.
