IELTS Speaking Part 1 NOISE


  1. Do you mind noises?
    It’s really hard for me to say no. I mean, I really can’t bear noisy people, noisy places or even noisy things. For me noise is the number-one distractor when it comes to studying or working. You know, they actually just go ahead and interrupt my flow of thoughts.
  2. Where can you hear loud noise?
    The noise can be frequently heard around the places such as airports, bus stations, and construction sites.
  3. What kind of sound do you like/dislike?
    I think there is one sound that can always lull me to sleep, the rain sound. There are nights I was so stressed out that I can hardly sleep no matter how much I tried, and then I went online searching for some sound for deep sleep or relaxation, and rain sound is always one of the top choices. And since then rain sound has become my go-to on sleepless nights.
  4. Is there any noise in the place where you live?
    Option 1: Well, I have to say that I face up to a rich variety of noises on a daily basis. The first type of noise is from traffic, especially during the rush hours. The second is noise from factories, construction sites which never fail to distract me from working, thereby reducing my productivity.
    Option 2: Yes, just recently, my neighbor was decorating his apartment upstairs in our high- rise in the daytime. I was really bothered by the noise of the drill.
  5. Do you think the world is getting noisier?
    Indeed. I do think the level of noise is increasing overtime mainly due to human activities. The situation gets even worse if you live in a big modern city at a young age. Your auditory must be trained so hard to tolerate such noise every day. It is really alarming now to raise people’s awareness towards this “invisible” killer.
