IELTS Speaking Part 1: ‘free time at home’ answers

Here are some example answers for the questions that I shared last week. Remember to focus on fluency in part 1. Try not to hesitate; just say the first thing that comes into your head.

1) How much time do you spend at home?

Obviously I sleep at home, but I don’t spend very much time at home during the day, because I’m usually busy with work.

2) Do you prefer to spend your free time at home or outside the house?

During the day I prefer to be out of the house, so I like visiting family or meeting up with friends. But I do like relaxing at home in the evenings.

3) What do you do when you have some free time and you’re at home?

I usually sit and watch some TV or a film, or I listen to some music. I also like sitting outside if the weather is nice.

4) Would you like to have more spare time to spend at home in the future?

No, not really. I get bored if I’m at home for too long. In the future, I imagine I’ll still prefer to go out and do things rather than stay indoors.
