  As the year 2009 ends, all IELTS candidates are awaiting to foresee what trends in IELTS speaking in 2010 will be. Almost all the students in LonGRE training center are asking the same questions. “What kind of questions will be asked?”, “Will the question and topic be more challenging than before?” To answer all these questions here are some of the most important topics that candidate should prepare for IELTS speaking 2010.

  HOT TOPIC ONE         Education

  Education was one of the most “hot” topics in 2009. Examiners would like to know the different situations of the education in one’s country and how it differs from the others. Good education is one of the most important right a citizen should have .Therefore; examiners would like to hear different views and opinions towards this topic. Without adequate knowledge about this topic, candidates will have a difficult time answering these questions.

  1.      Why parents would prefer to home school their children?

  Parents prefer to home school their children BECause it has been observed that children who are home schooled tend to be able to make it to international universities. Most people would be concerned about the child having an abnormal social life as he will not have any classmates when he is home schooled. Surprisingly, home schooled children seemed to be well rounded as compared to children who go to the traditional schooling. Parents can pay particular attention on the weakness of the child and focus on how to improve this when home schooling.

  2.      What are the advantages of Chinese education that you think should be passed on to the next generation?

  Chinese characters seem to be complicated, yet very interesting because each stroke and character has a meaning of its own. When a character is combined with another character, the meaning becomes different already. Chinese history is very rich in culture and values which are essential in one’s character and lifestyle. Sadly, not all the Chinese are lucky enough to be able to learn all these things.

  3.      Do you think that having a 9 year-compulsory schooling is enough to have a bright future?

  I am not convinced about the idea that a 9-year compulsory schooling is enough to have a bright future.  It would really depend on the child’s emotional maturity, character, capacity, intellect and resilience to be able to have a bright future. Most of the tycoons that we know did not come from well to do backgrounds, thus some of them were not able to finish even the elementary level. A bright future is not only gauged on material gains, but on how much this individual has contributed for the benefit of those around him.

  HOT TOPIC TWO        Media

  Media – Magazine, Newspaper, Radio, Television and Advertisement are all parts of Media. In the IELTS speaking test, there are a variety of questions comparing these different media types because it is considered to be the most powerful source of information that can straightly affect and influence people. Media is widely spread all over different places and countries. Most of the time it can change people’s way of life and way of thinking ,so examiners would like to know how you think and feel about it. Here are some examples of questions related to media in the IELTS speaking test.

  1.      Do you think that we should have censorship in TV programs?

  Yes, I think that we should definitely have censorship in TV programs. I speak not only for the children but for the adults as well. What we see on TV do affect our subconscious level more than we are actually aware of. X rated films and violent programs are major factors why crime and violence are very rampant in the world we are living in.

  2.      Why some people are willing to spend a lot of money in purchasing magazines?

  Magazines can be source of leisure yet can be informative as well that is why some people do not hesitate to splurge their money on these things. Through magazines, we can read about the life of some of our favorite celebrities. We get to also learn about practical tips about budgeting, fashion, improving our homes, etc. It is a source of entertainment where learning is fun and not forced.

  3.      What kind of influence can advertisement give to people?

  Advertisement either compels people to buy or refrain them from buying certain things or from doing certain actions without their conscious awareness. It is a very powerful tool to influence the mindset of people both young and old. All types of advertisement seem to have this kind of impact whether they are found on the billboards on the trains, buses and roads, whether they are found in the magazines or newspapers, and whether they are seen on TV. Advertisement has great power to boost or break a particular brand.

  HOT TOPIC THREE          Science and Technology

  Science and technology – This is one of those things that is changing rapidly in the society. Computers, MP 4, appliances are all part of the development of Science and technology. Any kind of change about these things usually has a very strong impact on us, some positive and some negative. Questions about pros and cons about this topic are often asked by the examiners during the exam. And anything about science and technology can become a question in IELTS speaking test. Here are some example questions candidates should know.

  1.      Do you think computer will replace TV in the future?

  I think the computer has already replaced TV in the present time. People can download the movies or the TV series that they would like to watch from the internet. We can even enjoy watching our favorite Talk shows via internet too. The you tube is very famous nowadays because we get to see not only movies or programs but demonstrations about doing some of the things that we would like to learn to do.

  2.      What are the disadvantages of high technology?

  High technology certainly takes away the virtue of patience in us because everything is fast paced. Some of us get out of touch with nature and are not able to enjoy playing with the frogs and enjoying the cool wind and sunshine outside because we prefer to play computer games inside the house. Mobile phones come in handy as we can easily get in touch with people whenever we need to. But with this convenience also comes consequences because studies proved that using mobile phones are harmful not only to our brain but also to the different parts of our body organs.

  3.      Should young people adapt with the changes of technology now?

  Actually, it’s not only the youth that should adapt to the changes of technology but the adults and seniors as well. For many years, people who live miles apart from their families are only able to get in touch through snail mails and long distance telephone calls. But nowadays, they can easily get in touch with each other via webcam and headset phones. It is very convenient but both parties must at least know how to open the computer and be able to enjoy the use of these.

  HOT TOPIC FOUR      Flat and House

  Flat and House – The most “in” topic in the last quarter of the year 2009. It is actually also one of the hottest topics last year, the year 2008. The difference between house and flat are the most in demand question about this topic. To be able to answer the questions well, candidates should at least know the difference between the two and have opinions about each one of them. What kind of decorations, and things that can be found inside a house or apartment should also be known by the candidates who are preparing to take the test? The following are example questions of flat and houses in the IELTS speaking exam.

  1.      Why do you think some people invest a huge amount of money in buying houses?

  A house actually speaks a lot about the person who lives inside it. Some people invest a huge amount of money to buy a house because it is a reflection of how much they have achieved. Some people are willing to shell out a large sum of money because they would like to enjoy a quality and comfortable home with their family. After all, who would not want to take comfort in a nice and pleasant house after a tiring and stressful day?

  2.      Should we live in a flat or in a house?

  Whether to live in a flat or in a house would actually depend on the lifestyle of the resident. It would be practical for a single professional who just comes home to sleep, take a shower and go to work to live in a flat for his own convenience. But it would be advisable for a family especially with children to live in a house as they will more likely be able to make full use of the space and the rooms. Of course, needless to say that we must live in a place where our budget could afford.
