IELTS Speaking topic: A child that made you laugh

Describe a time that a child did something that made you laugh.
You should say:
when this happened
who the child was
what the child did
and explain why it was funny.

Ok right then, well the time I’m going to talk to you about was when my son, who was only, like, three years’ old, did something that really made me laugh. My boy has done a lot of other amusing things as well, but this one, for me, was definitely the most funny. And not just me, but everyone around me at the time, cos it was absolutely hilarious, as I’ll explain in a moment.

In the evening that day, I was sitting at the computer listening to music in my study room when my son walked up and started to sing alone to Beyonce’s “Single ladies” and dance around the room. He was so cute that everyone else in my home just burst out laughing because none of us expected him to do that. You know, it was completely out of the blue.

I guess he must have just watched the music video on TV at some stage and picked it up. And, what also made it so funny was the fact that he danced exactly the same way an adult would, you know, with the feeling and rhythm and everything! So it was incredibly funny, and even he laughed after seeing our reaction!

      that’s easy. Every time you do the reading section in the Cambridge test book, you must go through every essay carefully, knowing every new word in the essay. That’s a very efficient way to expand your vocabulary because these words are very frequent both in the daily life and IELTS test.

      Hello, thank you for your comment. Pronunciation must be clear and accurate so as to let the examinee understand what you say. As far as I know, you can buy the listening book written by Wang Lu, and then listen to every word carefully, trying to emulate and correct your own pronunciation. Thanks to the author, she also teaches how to correct the pronunciation in the book. This is a problem that you must solve.

    My topic was not on the children but on the person that you made laugh

      I think a child is obviously a person. The topic doesn’t point out clearly that the person is a child or an adult.
