IELTS Speaking Part 1 Bags: Some types of bags that you can use to answer the IELTS Speaking questions about bags are duffel bags, backpacks, tote bags, briefcases, and messenger bags, among others.
Learn how the speaker answered the topic questions. Observe how he used the topic vocabulary, collocations, and the way he answered in a conversational and natural tone. Talking about bags will be much easier if you have enough vocabulary to use.
What types of bags do you like?
I’m more into using backpacks and sling bags. I actually enjoy traveling so most of the time, I carry a rucksack (a type of backpack that is commonly used by hikers) rather than a suitcase because, in my opinion, it’s more comfortable and handy (convenient to handle; useful). Also, I use a sling bag when I go to work.
Well, anything that is made of original leather. I like those kinds of bags because they’re indisputably (in a way that cannot be challenged) durable (long-lasting) although they’re expensive. I have two backpacks from Louis Vuitton; one cross-body bag (sling bag), and a duffel bag (gym bag). They’re all made of leather and I couldn’t be happier (to be very happy) using them since they’re still in very good condition despite the fact that I have had them for more than ten years now.
What do you put in your bag?
I do have personal items in my bag such as my wallet, pens, make-up kit, hand sanitizers, wet wipes, smartphone, and even a bottle of water because I need to hydrate myself always. Who doesn’t bring a bottle of water in their bag? (rhetorical question – it doesn’t need an answer, it is used to create a dramatic effect in speaking) That’s a must!
There’s nothing special in my bag. I think it’s the same as what most people put in their bags such as a wallet, a hand sanitizer, a phone, and an umbrella. But I think the most important thing of all these things I mentioned is my phone. I make sure (check; confirm) not to forget my phone to keep it in my bag because I use it most of the time when paying for something in a shop.
Do you usually carry a bag when you go out?
It’s not just usually but always. I always carry a bag with me. This may sound like an exaggeration (overstatement) but I can’t live without (find something extremely useful) carrying a bag when I go out. It has become an extension of myself (Laughing)! Well, there’s even a time that I intentionally didn’t carry one when I went to the supermarket and just brought with me my wallet. It’s crazy that I felt so uneasy (anxious) and I couldn’t focus on grocery shopping.
Well, only when I take with me some important documents or when I travel somewhere. Of course, if I travel I have to pack my clothes in a bag. But if I just go to a supermarket or perhaps go for a walk in a short distance, I don’t feel the need to carry a bag at all (in any way).
What factors do you consider when buying a bag?
Honestly, as I’m not rich, the very first thing that I consider is the price. I make sure that I can really afford to buy the bag that I set eyes on (to see something for the very first time). Then, once I know the price, I check the material and its quality and if everything meets my standard, I get the bag without hesitation.
Without a doubt (undoubtedly), the quality and the design! I’m actually a meticulous (very careful and precise) buyer when it comes to bags because I don’t often buy bags. If I buy one, I do my best to pick what I think is the best so I won’t have regrets later. Recently, I bought a Fjall Raven rucksack. It’s incredibly (extremely) expensive but the quality is topnotch (excellent) and the design really fits my style.
