IELTS Speaking topic: A person who likes to travel by plane

Describe a person who likes to travel by plane.
You should say:
who this person is
how you know this person
where this person travels to
and explain why this person likes to travel by plane.

I think this person would be my father who is an engineer. Due to his work, he has got loads of clients to the big cities such as Shanghai, Hangzhou and Guangzhou, and even in other countries. And almost two-third of the time in a month, he is on business trip to meet clients, attend meetings and tackle some severe problems. That’s why he has travelled a lot especially by air to different places.

I feel that as for a businessman, taking the airplane would save him much time and he is able to finish his work with high efficiency. Sometimes the price of a flight ticket can be negligible if he successfully make orders with clients. Also, the service on the plane is much better than that on the train. The flight attendance will offer various beverages and food, and the passengers can even ask for free blankets and back cushion. The passengers on the plane are not as many as that on the train, which makes the plane a cosy place for relaxation. My father always tells me that the quietness on the plane makes it possible for him to take a rest between the two cities. I think that’s the main reason why he insists on taking planes for business trip.

    please give me some ideas about a painting or a work of art . a special festival in your culture, a time you watched the sky

    • hey, as for the topic of sky, you can check here.

      • actually, I think the special festival is not just for traditional festival. can we say some shopping festival such as black Friday for USA, 11.11 for Chinese.

        • I think it is feasible to do that in the test. The speaking test just focuses on how you say, not what you say.
