IELTS Speaking Part 2 Topic: Describe a clever decision someone made
You should say:
- What was the decision?
- How did it work?
- Explain how you felt about it?
(What was the decision?) In life, we confront many situations where we feel helpless. Some people lose hope and give up, while others try to understand and solve the problems. I’d like to talk about my younger brother who made a smart decision. In the evening, my brother and I were on our way back home on our bicycles. As usual, the lane was congested with traffic, and people were hustling. And suddenly, two young men in a two-wheeler snatched the chain from the woman’s neck who was passing by. She started yelling in the middle of the road. (How did it work?) My brother had a clear-cut vision, and as the two-wheeler passed beside him, he noted it down very quickly. Later, along with the woman, my brother and I went to the police station and complained about the incident and gave the number-plate of the two-wheeler. Within an hour, they were able to track the rider and pillion rider. (Explain how you felt about it?) Everyone in the station, including the woman, appreciated my brother for his cleverness, wisdom, and presence of mind. They also promised him a memento on the upcoming Independence Day I was pleased and felt proud of him.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Questions (Discussion)
How to become a smart person?
We can become smart by being conscious of our surroundings, managing our time perfectly, talking to others, and conveying information effectively. Also, to become smart, we will first have to learn. We must gain as much knowledge as possible. This can be done through the internet, books or by talking to experienced people.
What can schools do for students’ intellectual development?
Schools play an essential role in the development of a student’s personality. Schools help a student to identify his/her hidden talents, skills, and abilities. Therefore, schools should motivate and guide students for self-grooming.
What suggestions will you give schools to develop their potential?
Schools can develop children’s potential by identifying the student’s strengths and weaknesses. They should mainly focus on academic performance. Schools should also assess the growth of students after every learning activity.
What do you think is more important – Nature or Nurture?
Nature is something that we inherit from our parents, while nurture is what parents do. According to me, nature is more important than nurture as the former determines who we are. Though our environment influences us, our nature determines the way we react.
Do you think smart students are happy?
This depends upon the student. Even under the constant pressure of learning more and scoring well, they are happy. They can solve problems quickly and manage any amount of pressure. These abilities make them successful, which in turn keeps them happy.
Why do you think some people are really good at something?
According to me, some people are experts in certain areas because they are hardworking and have used their presence of mind from an early age. But it can also be due to genetic factors. Another reason could be that they must have learnt a lot to be an expert in the field. In the end, experience also matters.
