IELTS Speaking Part 1 – Library

1. How often do you go to the library?

I’d say I go about two to three times a week. But during major exams, I tend to visit more frequently. I usually stay there for at least two to three hours, but sometimes, for special occasions, I might stay for up to 6 hours. Also, on weekends, I go there. Besides doing my homework, I also review or focus on finishing my research papers. Although my room is good for studying, sometimes the library has a better atmosphere for focusing, so I often go there.

2. What do you usually do in the library?

Apart from the usual studying, reviewing, and searching for books, there are times when I just want silence. During those times, I might doodle or scribble to clear my mind. It’s great that I have headphones so I can listen to music and be somewhat distracted yet isolated. There are parts of the library where I can reflect on things, especially if I’m dealing with personal struggles. I tend to go there to spend time thinking and reflecting on what I’ve done or to plan my next actions.

3. Did you go to the library when you were a kid?

When I was younger, I had access to a lot of books, so I didn’t go to the library very often. Plus, my parents had their own computer, and most of the materials I needed were easily accessible online. The only time I needed to go to the library was to search for archived information that wasn’t available online, like old records that hadn’t been digitized yet.

4. Do Chinese kids often go to the library?

Yes, going to the library is a regular part of a Chinese child’s life. Parents prefer their children to be in an environment where they can learn peacefully. It’s better than sending them to a park, especially considering safety concerns nowadays. Libraries provide a quiet, safe space for children to connect with others in a controlled environment. They don’t need to be loud; they can just be there and enjoy being kids peacefully.
