IELTS Speaking Part 1 RAIN

RAIN

  1. Do you like rainy days?
    Yes, absolutely! I like when it rains… I love all the freshness around, the cool breeze after a heavy rain. It’s wonderful!
  2. What do you do on rainy days?
    Well, rainy days are the best days to watch movies I have been longing to watch or catch up on my unfinished reading. Movies and books will make up my whole rainy day. Sometimes, I would rather spend with my pet and teach it new tricks.
  3. What is the importance of the rainfall?
    Well, currently, I am living in Hanoi, which is located in the northern part of Vietnam. I suppose that in the north, the rainy season comes during the summer months, extending from mid-April to mid-October. This is because during this time of the year, the city’s climate is influenced by the southwest monsoon, which brings moist air from the oceans to the land and causes torrential rain.
  4. Does it rain much in Vietnam? (Where? When?)
    As it is entirely located in the tropical belt, Vietnam receives quite a great amount of precipitation every year. However, the part that records the highest rainfall is the northern section of Central Vietnam when the northeast monsoon arrives, between September and December. This region can also be affected by the typhoon season in the Western Pacific, which can see severe storms lashing the coast from August to November.
  5. Is there any part of Vietnam where it doesn’t rain much? (Where?)
    In general, I guess the driest place in Vietnam might possibly be Ninh Thuan province, which is situated on the south-central coast. The weather there is quite extreme with a lot of wind as well as a hot and dry atmosphere during the year. Also, there is no winter here, and the average temperature is considerably higher than most other parts of the country.
  6. When (in what month/season) does it rain most in your hometown?
    Well, currently, I am living in Hanoi, which is located in the northern part of Vietnam. I suppose that in the north, the rainy season comes during the summer months, extending from mid-April to mid-October. This is because during this time of the year, the city’s climate is influenced by the southwest monsoon, which brings moist air from the oceans to the land and causes torrential rain.
  7. What about the other parts of Vietnam? (In which season does it rain most in other parts of Vietnam?)
    Well, the southern part of Vietnam, especially the Mekong Delta, gets plenty of rain and hot, humid weather during the southwest monsoon from April to September, with June and July being especially wet. Meanwhile, the center of the country receives the most rainfall between September and December, during which time the region suffers from severe storms and flooding.
  8. Can you remember any time when it rained particularly heavily in your hometown? (When?)
    Yes, of course. I suppose it was about a year or so ago, when we had several days of torrential rain, almost non-stop, and so the whole of my neighborhood got flooded.
    You know, the water was, like, up to my knees, and so the traffic came to a complete standstill. So, yeah, that was probably the worst time I can remember.
  9. Does rain ever affect transportation in your hometown? (How?)
    Yeah, for sure. As a matter of fact, rain often causes severe traffic congestion, especially when there is heavy downpour. People should expect to be stuck for hours in a traffic jam. I’m not exactly sure why, but it’s possibly because vehicles tend to move slower in the rain.
