Important Points: In this question, you are asked to talk about a place you like to go often and explain why it is important to you. People who listen to your response should be able to easily follow the progression of your ideas. Responses scored at the highest level contain ideas supported with details and elaboration that go beyond simple structures. For example, the response “I like this place because it is nice” does not have enough detail. Why is this place nice? Developing this idea more might look like this: “I like this place because it is quiet and peaceful. Listening to the ocean waves on the beach relaxes me and helps me to relieve stress.”
Play the audio to hear a mid-level response for the question and read the rater's comments below.
This response is sustained and the speech is generally understandable. At times, though, the speaker's pronunciation makes it difficult to understand the meaning of her ideas. She really gives only one reason why she likes shopping. This reason is used repetitively without much elaboration. Shopping is something she likes very much and makes her feel better. She could have added complexity to her ideas by saying something like “When I go shopping, I usually go with friends and we have a good time together without thinking about jobs, or schoolwork." She also makes some basic grammatical errors and uses a limited range of vocabulary.
