PART 1 (Interview)
Now, in this first part of the IELTS Speaking Test, I’m going to ask you some questions about …
Q. What is your name?
A. My name is Albert Alexei.
Q. And what can I call you?
A. You can call me Alexei.
Q. What was your major in University?
A. My major in university was Computer Science.
Q. Which is more necessary for a job? Experience or education?
A. I think both are necessary. To apply for a job, a good educational background is required nowadays. On the other hand, an experienced professional can get a better job compared to a person without professional experience. In fact, for a fresh graduate, strong academic knowledge is required. Over the time, s/he gathers practical experiences and gain expertise. I am sure a majority of the companies look for a good combination of these two – education & experience.
Q. What type of job you prefer?
A. As I have completed my graduation in Computer Science, I would like to work as a software developer. I prefer the type of jobs that enable the employee to have some flexibility and better working environment. The company should provide sufficient opportunity for the employees to learn and also the scope for enhancing their careers.
Q. What are the most common types of jobs in your hometown?
A. Working in government offices, telecommunication companies, software farms and manufacturing factories are the most common job types in my hometown. Apart from that, there are farmers, manual labors, doctors and teachers as well.

PART 3 (Discussion)
We’ve been talking about … , and I’d now like to ask you some questions related to this.
Q. What type of qualities you prefer to make friends?
A. The two most important qualities that I always prefer are positive mentality and honesty among friends. If someone has these two qualities, I will become his/her friend easily. Apart from that, I look the way s/he makes a conversation, criticize others and behave with others. Finally, I would also look for common interest as I believe having common interests and similar views make the friendship stronger.
Q. Do you have many friends? How much time do you spend with friends?
A. I used to have quite a large number of friends during my college years. Nowadays I have comparatively fewer friends, but they are very close to me. I have around 3-4 close friends and many other good friends whom I really like to discuss, talk and spend time with.
As I have got busy these days, I spend around 5-6 hours with my friends weekly. Sometimes, it varies from 3 to 10 hours on an average.
