IELTS Speaking Band 9 Sample Answer + Vocabulary

Listen to a Band 9 sample answer for one of the most common topics in IELTS Speaking Part 2 (which is a job) + Learn some useful vocabulary and grammar from the answer that you could use yourself to get a higher score.

Vocabulary and grammar from this video lesson

If (past simple), would/could/might + verb (conditional type 2, subjunctive mood)
If I were rich, I would still make these video lessons.
If I couldn’t go on holiday for a long time, I would get sad.

In particular = especially
I didn’t like anything in particular.

Basically is a useful linking word when you want to explain something or say what is important about it.
Basically, there is not much we can do about it.

My job involves = My responsibilities are

Ultimately = Finally, in the end
Ultimately, it is up to you = In the end, you have to make the decision

A job such as this = a nice way to say this job

A job may become dangerous.
Use “may” to say that something is possible
It may be worth considering my suggestion.

Provide a good work-life balance = your work leaves you enough free time for your family and hobbies.
Part-time working is often the best way to improve your work-life balance.
To work part-time means to work less than 35 or 40 hours a week.

On the plus side, I suppose one will never get bored of this job because of its variety.
“On the plus side” is a linker showing that after talking about disadvantages of something, you are about to talk about some advantages.

satisfying/rewarding/fulfilling job/work/career/experience
to find something satisfying/rewarding
I find playing the piano particularly satisfying after a long day at work.

In terms of salary, such jobs are usually well-paid, which is useful for paying bills and supporting your family.
In terms of something = shows what aspect of something you are talking about.
This job is great in terms of salary.
A salary = money you earn (usually paid monthly, working in an office)
A wage = money you earn (usually paid weekly, working in a factory)
To earn a salary/a wage

To pay bills = to pay for someone’s expenses
I don’t like my job but it pays the bills.

To support your family = in this context means to give money to your family so they could pay their bills
I earn quite well but I need to support elderly parents.

What I find most appealing is how intellectually stimulating such a job would be.
To find something appealing = to be attracted by something
Retaking the driving test in the UK is not a prospect I find appealing.

An intellectually stimulating job = a job that makes your brain work

Please note the grammatical structure of this sentence:
What I find most appealing is how intellectually stimulating such a job would be.
What I find surprising is how easily you have changed your mind.

In short, this is a challenging and rewarding career.
A challenging career/job/task = Difficult in a way that tests your abilities

Had I known about all of this in my early twenties, I would have definitely become a journalist.
If I had + past participle, would/could/might + have + past participle (conditional type 3).

“informal’ is quite a broad term. It is not recommended for the purposes of your IELTS examination.

Seriously, I really love your lecture videos! Your video clips are always very practical! Today, I watched one of your lectures, "IELTS Speaking SAMPLE Band 8 | Three Task 2 Answers"! You gave a tip "do not focus on sub-questions," I really love this tip, because every time I focused on sub-questions, and it makes my speech suck! / And, this time, you explained some grammar structures!!! Thanks a lot ^____^!!!
