IELTS Example Part 2 Conversation:

I’m going to talk about Imtiaz

Who was a former colleague of mine

Back in the day when I was working for an IT firm in Dhaka.

So, we’ve known each other for donkey’s years, and I think we first met in 2016.

We were working in the same department and got on really well, we really hit it off from the start

He’s arguably the most intelligent guy I’ve ever met, I mean he’s sharp, really sharp! He’s pretty gregarious but very focussed.

Anyway, he left that company to set up his own business, and he made a real success of it.

He went from being one man, to now having a team of 10, and being known as one of the leading IT firms in his area.

I feel extremely proud of him because he deserved to do well. I am sure he will continue to grow and do well.

Describe a place you have visited with your friends.

So, a few months ago my family and I went with some friends to visit a cave not too far from where we live. It’s really hidden away in the mountains, but only about a half-hour’s drive from our home.

So the cave is actually closed to the public, they build a replica in a kind of museum right next door. It’s an impressive, modern building, slap bang in the middle of the most picturesque scenery you can imagine. It’s what you might call a ‘smart’ building; so go on when you enter a room, it has automatic sliding doors, and the cave area has self–regulation air conditioning.

So, you can visit the cave and see all the cave paintings, well copies, that date back thousands of years. There’s a cafeteria where people typically have tea or coffee after seeing the cave, and of course, there is the ‘obligatory’ shop where you can pick up a souvenir to remember your visit. I loved the place. I felt it was realistic and it’s a smashing place to take kids, as it takes them on a very vivid journey into the past. I would recommend it.
