IELTS Speaking Part 3: "it depends"

 Many students answer questions in IELTS speaking part 3 by saying "it depends".

"It depends" is not a full answer. You need to say what it depends on, and why.

Example question:
Do you think it's important to find a job that you love, or is it more important to earn a good salary?

Don't say:
"It depends. Some people prefer to find a job they love, but other people want to earn a good salary." (This answer just repeats the question)

Do say:
"Personally, I'd prefer to do a job that I really enjoy; as long as I earn enough to live comfortably, the salary is less important. However, I can see the benefits of doing a job that you don't like if it pays well. With a good salary, you can probably do more enjoyable things in your free time."
