IELTS Speaking Part 2:

Describe a time you made a decision to wait for something

You should say:

When it happened

What you waited for

Why you made the decision

And explain how you felt while waiting



I once waited for a job offer from a company I really wanted to work for. Although I was supposed to hear back from them in a week, the week passed without any news, and I started to feel a sense of mounting frustration. However, I decided to wait a few more days before following up with the company because I knew they had a thorough recruitment process, and I didn’t want to appear impatient.


During the waiting period, I felt a mix of excitement and anxiety. I was excited about the possibility of getting the job and starting a new chapter in my career, but I was also worried that I might not get the job after all. Despite trying to distract myself, I kept checking my email and phone constantly for any updates.


Finally, after a few more days, I received an email from the company offering me the job, and I was overjoyed. Looking back, I realized that waiting can be difficult, but it’s often necessary to achieve our goals. In this case, waiting demonstrated my patience and professionalism, and it ultimately led to a positive outcome.


IELTS Speaking Part 3:


What do people in your country often do while waiting?


In my country, people often kill time by scrolling through their phones, chatting with friends or reading a book. Some might also run errands or do other tasks to make the most of their time. Personally, I like to catch up on emails and messages or listen to music to pass the time.


Is being patient good for people? Why?


Being patient is definitely good for people; as the saying goes “good things come to those who wait”. When we’re patient, we’re better able to handle difficult situations and not rush into decisions that we may later regret. Moreover, practicing patience can help improve our overall mental and emotional well-being by reducing stress and anxiety levels.


Are people less patient now than people in the past? Why?


In comparison to earlier times, people are now markedly less patient due to technology and instant gratification. Instant satisfaction has spoiled us, making waiting seem like an inconvenience and leading to frustration. From fast food to online shopping to instant messaging, various aspects of our lives demonstrate this tendency.


Why do children lack patience?


Children lack patience because they are still developing their ability to control their impulses and emotions. They have a shorter attention span and can get easily distracted by things that interest them. Additionally, many children are used to getting instant gratification in this fast-paced digital age, which can make waiting more difficult for them.


How can people become more patient?


To become more patient, people can try different things like taking deep breaths, practicing mindfulness, and reminding themselves that things take time. They can also try to break down their goals into smaller steps and celebrate their progress along the way. Additionally, it can be helpful to find activities that promote relaxation and reduce stress, such as exercise or spending time in nature.
