IELTS Speaking Part 1 – Rain

  • Do you like rainy days? Why?
  • Does it rain much in your city?
  • Would you like to live in a dry or wet place?
  • Would you change your plan if it rained?

1. Do you like rainy days? Why?

When I was young, I really enjoyed rainy days because it usually meant that school would be suspended due to heavy rain. It was something we looked forward to. However, as I’ve grown older, I have more responsibilities, and even on rainy days. We still have to go to work and be accountable for any damages caused by the rain. So, I have started to dislike it. Recently, in my country, it’s the rainy season, and I find it a bit frustrating as we have to spend more money to replace things damaged by the recent storms. So, I don’t really like rainy days now

2. Does it rain much in your city?

It rains about 60 to 70% of the year, especially during the typhoon season. We have typhoons, as well as a local monsoon and local depression zones, so there’s a lot of rain. Even during summer, it’s very hot in the afternoon, and then it usually rains late at night. I can’t give you an exact count, but based on a rough estimate, we experience at least 26 storms a year, which means at least twice a month we have a storm, and occasionally, we have rain from time to time.

3. Would you like to live in a dry or wet place?

If I had to choose, I would prefer to live in a wet place. Whenever I live in a dry place, I tend to get a lot of rashes, especially since I sweat a lot. It’s quite inconvenient to live in a dry place. While there are some problems with a wet place, they can usually be rectified easily. I could just make sure I have baby powder with me, but the feeling of cracked skin in dry weather is really terrible.

4. Would you change your plans if it rained?

If my plan involves traveling using public transport, I might consider changing the time because I wouldn’t want to be in a very stormy area or risk an accident during heavy rain. However, if it’s just a matter of meeting up with people in the same location, we might change the plan, possibly adjusting the time or place. Usually, we can push it to another time within the day. But, if it’s something important, the show must go on. For example, if I need to attend a wedding or an important meeting, I have to make it work regardless of the rain. Maybe I can go there in advance and wait, but I wouldn’t cancel it because, again, this is work.
