IELTS Speaking Part 2&3 #50 Describe a time of seeing interesting animals

Describe a time of seeing interesting animals You should say:
Who the animals were? When and where you saw it?
What it was doing when you saw it? And explain how you feel about it.

Sample Answer:

I am raising an Alaska dog, which is a large breed of domestic dog. My dog has a double coat: the undercoat is soft while the outer one is coarse and water-proof. Also, his coat has two colors, black and white.

In my opinion, his most attractive feature is the small upright ears which are out of proportion to the head. Having had this dog for almost a year, I find him intriguing. He
is very smart, so he learns everything quickly. I once taught him how to fetch. Surprisingly enough, he successfully chased and retrieved the object after I tossed it for the second time. He acted as if he had intrinsically understood the game. He is also friendly to everyone, especially children. Whenever someone visits my house, instead of barking, he welcomes them by licking their feet.

For me, my dog is a friend I can play with after school. I often walk him around the park at the weekends and he seems to like this, as there are different dogs there. I also talk with him regularly and I feel that he can understand what I say.

As a final point, I hope that my dog can live with me for a long time.

Follow-up questions:

  1. Tell me about an animal you saw which is very rare in your home town.
    There are some rare animals too like guinea pigs. Originating from Andes, the animals do not have any connection with pigs and they are mostly used in laboratoriesto test different medicines and bring out the result. I have seen one of my neighbors having guinea pigs as her pet, which is rare in my hometown.
  2. Do you think people do not respect animals these days? What about 10 years ago? Currently people have been busier. As a result, they cannot pay proper attention to their pets. They do want to respect the pets or look after them better but unfortunately, their good intentions are not achieved due to the hefty workload. About 10 years back, people used to spend their time with their pets, they would bathe and feed them every day by themselves, played with them but this is rare and irregular in recent times.
  3. Earlier people used animals for their work. Now, what do people use to do their work?
    With the advancing age, everything has become modernized and mechanized. Vehicles have replaced the animals like horse or buffaloes to pull carts or transport goods from place to places. Sometimes, they used dogs to hunt animals for meat, but now they are buying processed meats from stores. Moreover, earlier there were horse races which have been replaced by car racing events. These days, people rely on technological devices mostly to have their job done. So many animals are extinct these days.
  4. What do you think about this? Why it is happening?
    Animals are of great use for us. But there are some people who indiscriminately are hunting down animals which are bad for the environment and for humans too. Mostly the animals are killed for their skin and horns. Precious products and medicines are made from the animal skins and horns and thus poachers are killing them illegally in the jungles resulting in their extinction. It should be prevented strictly or the species will disappear forever.Deforestation, new constructions, people’s greed and temperature change are some of the other reasons why many animal species are getting extinct. Global warming is a threat both to human and other species. We should take every measure to reduce the global temperature.
    Apart from that, hunting of wild animals should be completely banned.
