IELTS Speaking Part 2 Topic: Describe a person who you think is very open
You should talk about:
- Who is this person?
- How you know this person?
- Why do you think this person is very open?
- Explain how you feel about this person?
(Who is this person) Being expressive and open is a rare virtue that only a few people possess. Nowadays, most people don’t hesitate to convey their views. On the contrary, there are some who don’t find it easy to express their views. Here I will talk about my next-door neighbour, John, a straightforward and opinionated person. (How do you know this person?) When I was just 8 years old, John had moved into our colony after making a lot of money as a public speaker in the US. During the colony meetings, he didn’t rely upon others to discuss any issues. Instead, he kept his views open for everyone. Many people even shared their worries to him so that he would speak his mind and give a solution to it. (Why do you think this person is open?) Once, our colony was facing a significant issue of water shortage. Many of them wrote about it to the municipalities, but no steps were taken. When John came to know about this, he gathered everyone and asked them to go on a rally. The next day, everyone went on a protest demanding water. Later, the authorities assured that water would be supplied within the next 5 hours. Due to John’s altruistic nature, he became everyone’s favourite. (Explain how you feel about this person?) John is a decisive person who thinks for the betterment of people and doesn’t hesitate to go beyond the conventional domains to solve people’s issues. I idolize him for his straightforwardness.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 (Discussion)
Is it difficult for people in your country to express their feelings?
Yes, Many Indians hesitate to express their feelings in public because they are emotional, sensitive, and shy. Moreover, one of the major reasons behind this is that most of the Indians don’t get the emotional support as required to open up. Thus, they feel that it is not worth sharing about the things going on in their minds.
Who do you think will talk more? Children or grown ups?
Of course, children will talk more as they tend to share every detail of what happened to them. Children don’t have the strategy to calm themselves while talking. They also don’t have a curtain. They cannot differentiate between what should be said and what should be avoided. In their tiny brains, they have millions of questions. So they are chatty.
What do you think is the difference between boys and girls in expressing their feelings?
Generally, girls become emotional when expressing their feelings, while boys express their feelings with anger and positive stimuli. Also, girls don’t hide away from somebody they trust. On the other hand, boys keep everything inside. However, it varies on a case by case basis too.
Do you think people are more open than in the past?
Yes, People in the past were not allowed to express their views or opinions on anything. Only the men were allowed to make decisions. But nowadays, openness doesn’t vary based on gender.
