IELTS Speaking Topic: Part-1 乐器 Musical Instruments
Which musical instrument do you like listening to most? (Why?)
My favourite musical instrument to listen to is the guitar. I like the fact that there are different types of guitar, like classical, acoustic and electric. I love the variety of sounds a guitar can make.
I like listening to the Violin the most because it has a very high sound and it is very popular string instrument in Orchestra.
Have you ever learned to play a musical instrument?
I took some guitar lessons when I was younger and still have a guitar at home. I don’t play it much nowadays. I wish I had more time to practise.
Not really but I would love to have got the opportunity to learn Piano.
Do you think children should learn to play an instrument at school?
Yes, I think it’s a great skill and it’s really enjoyable to be able to play a musical instrument. All children should be given this opportunity.
No, I think the disadvantageous for learning to play an instrument at school would outweigh the advantageous . The essentiality for learning a music instrument is not as high as other mainstream subjects at school. It goes with hobbies rather than the main curriculum subjects such as math and science not to mention the fact that not every child could cope with it
How easy would it be to learn to play an instrument without a teacher?
It would probably be more difficult without a teacher. You need someone to show you what to do and correct your mistakes. You need a lot of discipline to teach yourself.
I think it depends ,firstly- gifted children or adults would probably go ahead and play it without academical approach tutors . secondly- people would learn it easier and faster if they have got the interest in learning it as a hobby. Thirdly –people might take ages to learn music instrument if they have not got hold of a real interest in it.
