Family: IELTS Speaking Part 2 Questions & Sample Answers

Describe a family member who has accomplished something remarkable.

You should say:

  • who the family member is
  • what they achieved
  • why their accomplishment is remarkable

and explain how their success has inspired you and your family.

Sample Answer:

My older sister, Sarah, is a family member who has achieved something truly remarkable. She had always dreamed of becoming a doctor, and after years of hard work and dedication, she made that dream come true. Despite facing challenges along the way, Sarah’s determination is an inspiration to all of us. Her success motivates our family to pursue our own dreams and teaches us the importance of never giving up. Sarah’s commitment to helping others reminds us of the rewards that come from working hard and staying strong. Her remarkable accomplishment has had a lasting impact on our family, inspiring us to believe in ourselves and strive for greatness. Sarah is a true role model who shows us what it means to achieve something remarkable.

Describe an activity that you enjoy doing with your family.

You should say:

  • what the activity is
  • when and where you usually do it
  • why you enjoy doing it with your family

and explain how this activity strengthens your bond with your family.

Sample Answer:

One activity I enjoy with my family is having a weekly game night. We gather in the living room every Friday evening to play board games or cards. We started this tradition a few years ago and always look forward to it. I enjoy game nights because this allows me to spend quality time with my family, create memories, and bond over the shared experience. We laugh, compete, and enjoy each other’s company. It’s a fun way for us to communicate and work together as a team. We learn how to be good sports whether we win or lose. We also get the chance to have meaningful conversations and strengthen our connection. Our weekly game night helps us feel closer as a family and brings us a lot of happiness.
