Speaking Model Answers
1. Do you like listening to music, and what types of music do you like listening to?
I totally don’t believe that a meaningful life, for us humans, can be one without music, so of course, listening to music is part of my daily life. My favorite music genres are popular music and ballads. Their lyrics are straightforward and thereby understandable, and their melodies are usually gripping and sometimes super easy to remember. In fact, another type of music I am also fond of is instrumental music. A number of its songs truly empathize with my feelings whenever I am in a bad mood or working under pressure. They all put my mind at ease the very moment I start listening to them.
2. Where do you usually listen to music?
I listen to music almost everywhere anytime throughout the day. Music actually turns out to be my best mate during moments like when I’m riding my bicycle around a park for exercise, when I’m waiting for latecomers in class, when I’m chilling out in my bed, and even when I’m taking a shower. To enjoy my favorite songs to the fullest, I have never found a place as private, tranquil, comfortable, and ideal as my own bedroom.
3. Can you play any musical instruments?
My answer is no. To play any kind of musical instrument skillfully requires high discipline, great persistence, and a vast amount of time to be spent on infinitely repeated practice. As a language teacher, a tutor, and a teaching assistant, I normally have so many tasks to fulfill that I barely have time to consider taking up a new hobby such as learning to play the piano.
4. Do you think it’s important for children to learn to play a musical instrument?
Learning to play a musical instrument at a young age undoubtedly leads to certain beneficial outcomes. It enables children to enhance their cognitive abilities and offers a highly efficient way to relieve stress. It develops a stronger sense of pride and confidence in their awareness and eventually increases their social connections. Furthermore, possessing the ability to play any kind of musical instrument is deemed a highlighted qualification in one’s application for employment.
5. Do you prefer listening to live performances or recorded music?
I haven’t been to live musical performances before, nor would I actually feel like going to one, especially in my home country. There is hardly ever a concert which suits my taste in music; besides, I listen to music for entertainment and stress relief, and I only enjoy it in a quiet, private place instead of a noisy public space filled with crowds of audience.
