Daily IELTS Answer – Sports (Band 7.0 – Part 3)

What are the benefits of sports?

“Firstly, it gives your health a boost. Secondly, it helps to motivate people so it gives them more discipline and we can increase the chance of bringing people together. Here in Brazil, there are many groups of elderly people practising sports on the squares and I think it’s a good way for them to socialise and to make friends also.”

  • Collocation: give a boost – “it gives your health a boost.”

  • Grammar: increase the chance of bringing – increase the chance of (gerund) – “we can increase the chance of bringing people together.”

Do you think that children need to do exercise?

“Surely, it’s an amazing thing they should practice not only at school but also in their free time. firstly because it helps them to make friends, develop a sense of competition. Secondly because it helps to decrease the level of child[hood] obesity which is very frequently. Finally, children need to spend time is by doing sports instead of watching TV or watching the iPad screen.”

What are the differences between watching sport on TV and in person?

“Firstly, going to the stadium is much more interesting than watching it on TV, you can feel the energy of the fans, you can feel close to the players, you can shout and participate. Secondly, it’s a way of spending time with others, so you can go with your friends, while staying home you can’t make many new friends. Finally, it’s a wonderful way for the government to improve these events so it can create a sense of community that you can’t get at home.”

Daily IELTS Answer – Losing Things (Band 7.0 – Part 3)

Daily IELTS Answer – Losing Things (Band 7.0 – Part 3)

What kinds of things do people lose most often?

I think the mobile phone is something that people always lose because it’s something small and we carry with us everywhere. It’s something that we sometimes leave in some places and I usually have friends and relatives who have lost their mobile phones. Nowadays, it has become easier to find it, because they have an app and we can look for it (track it and locate where the phone is) so it’s easy to find where we have left our phone.

  • Vocab: track (v.) – follow with technology – You can use an app to track your phone if you lose it.”

Why do some people lose things do often?

I think it depends on the personality of each one, for example, I have method that I always use, where I carry a bag with a special place for my mobile phone, my wallet and my ID, so I always check my bag if everything is in the right place. But there are some people who are not organised and usually lose some items because they don’t have a habit of checking.

  • Collocation: use/ have a method 

    • We are using the latest methods to treat her condition

  • Collocation: [a habit of checking]  

How can parents teach their kids to be organised?

Since they are very young, these days we can see a lot of shelves and boxes to organize toys and we have some special shelves to organise books, so I have the habit of tidying up all the things my son isn’t using anymore. I put these things in a closet, so the self is very organised so they can pick up that habit from childhood. They can learn to avoid having clutter in their bedrooms, so we can have a better life is we just use the things we are going to use. We’re not sentimental.

  • Vocab: tidy up (ph. v)

  • Collo: pick up a habit – develop a habit based on parents / peers

  • Pattern: learn to [avoid having] – learn to [avoid verb+ing]

Daily IELTS Answer – Guests (Band 7.0 – Part 3)

Daily IELTS Answer – Guests (Band 7.0 – Part 3)

Do you like to host parties in your own home? 

“I like to host parties and I like being a hostess.  Even though I hate when the party finishes and I have to wash the dishes and clean everything, that’s why I don’t host a lot of parties or dinners at my home. Although I have a husband who is very friendly and has many friends because he’s a good listener, he always invites people here to have BBQ’s on the balcony, but no one helps me clean up.”
+Collocation: have BBQ’s / have parties / have dinners / have meals
+
Vocab: No one helps me clean up.
+ Vocab:I like entertaining my guests

Why do some people prefer not to entertain in their homes?

“I believe the first reason is that everybody has to clean up when people leave. There are a lot of tasks, things to do, like washing dishes. Secondly, there are people who don’t like to make new friends and to get to know their friends, and they don’t like to socialise or they don’t have much social energy and people who don’t care friends. Whereas, here in Brazil, most people love to socialise. it’s the preferred way to spend the weekend, they prefer to go out and see friends, or host some friends or family, and I love to my parents’ house on Sundays because they always have lunch and I love to socialise with my family and catch up with my relatives.”
+Grammar Check: People who don’t – They don’t
+Collocation: make friends
+Vocab: get to know someone 
+Collocation: don’t have much social energy – social energy
+Vocab:  we love to socialise. – We are outgoing (adj.)
+Vocab: catch up with talk about new things in each other’s lives

In Brazil, when people visit each others homes, do they usually bring a gift?

“It depends on the occasion. If you don’t know a person very well, this person might bring flowers or wine, or some kind of home gifts. Even though this person might be a close friend, it’s not common to receive a gift that often. For example, my husband and I are friends with another couple with a small girl the same age as my son, and they always come over and socialise, we have a BBQ on the balcony, and they are at our house all the time, but we don’t receive any presents. We are close friends, so we don’t need to give a gift or anything, because they’re like our family. But when this person isn’t so close to us, we always receive some kind of gift.”
+Vocab: home gifts – small, simple gifts – for example, candles, picture frames, and glassware.
+Grammar: some kind of gift.

How will you entertain your guests at your home?

“We usually play some music, have a dinner or have a BBQ on the balcony. Most of our friends have kids also, so we bring some toys to the living room and the living room is full of toys, papers, crayons, colours, pencils and in the end, everything is a mess because there are so many children and people that don’t clean up anything. But I love to entertain my friends, even though it’s not easy when the party finishes.”

Daily IELTS Answer – Plants (Band 7.0 – Part 1)

Do you know a lot about plants?

“I’ve never read anything about plants, I don’t have green fingers and everything that I have planted in my whole life hasn’t grown because I’m not good at it .I don’t have the patience to water my plants, the only plant that has  ever survived in my apt was a cactus. I don’t have to water it, just once every 10 days so it’s the perfect plant for me. Although, my preferred plant is the orchid. I would love to get a orchid as a present, they are lovely to look at. I hope they come back and I’m looking forwarding to seeing them again in the spring.”

They say, everything that we plant, grows. So it’s easy if you have a small place in your house, you can start a garden and it’s easy to have them grow. Although, as I told you, in big cities, people nowadays live in small apartment, so there aren’t many green spaces. The only thing we can have is a balcony to grow herbs or small house plants.

Daily IELTS Answer – Gifts (Band 6.0 – Part 1)

Daily IELTS Answer – Gifts (Band 6.0 – Part 1)

Have you ever received a gift that you didn’t like?

When I was visiting my mother-in-law, it was the same time as my birthday so we celebrated my birthday at my house. She gave me a present that I didn’t like. Even though I didn’t like it, she wanted to please me, so I said I was really happy with the present. 

What kinds of gifts are popular in Brazil?

Considering the ages, because there are different kinds of presents in regards to age. Kids, for example, the best choice is toys. Even though the parents prefer clothes because it’s cheaper for them. But for adults…. it depends on how close you are with the birthday person, so you can give clothes, drinks, cars, holidays, diamonds and things like that. It depends on how much you have.  

Do you like to give expensive gifts to other people? 

Normally, I don’t look at the price, for example, if I’m looking for a present for my mum, I try to get something higher quality, but it doesn’t have to be expensive. Even though it’s my mum, I would like to give her the best present ever. Even though I don’t make much money, I still try to buy my parents really nice, high quality gifts.

Daily IELTS Answer – An Important Event You Celebrated (Band 7.5 – Part 2)

Describe an important event that you celebrated

“I’m going to describe my wedding. I think it’s a little bit cliche to talk about, but it’s one of the most important events in my life. Some people may think it’s a little bit too early because I’m too young but we had already been living together for a year, and I wanted to do it and I thought it was right to do it. I think a lot of people don’t get married and it’s over or they break up. The ceremony was not as big as others. We did it in Brazil, with my family. My husband’s sister wanted to be there so badly she took a day trip to Brazil from Australia, I mean 24 hours in Brazil, then she went back to Oz. The ceremony was a little bit short, but I got a chance to see everyone, because usually the time I have in Brazil is a little bit too short so I can’t see everyone I want to. That was a really important event for me.”
+Grammar: one of the (superlative adj.) + (plural noun) – “One of the most important events.” – “One of the most beautiful beaches in the world.”
+Phrasal Verb: break up – to end or finish a romantic relationship – “We decided to break up last week.”
+Collocation: take a trip – “She took a trip to Greece to visit her grandparents.”
