IELTS Speaking topic: Being in a hurry

1. When was the last time you did something in a hurry?
2. Do you like to finish things quickly?
3. What kinds of things will you never do in a hurry?
4. Why do people make mistakes more easily when they are in a hurry?

Actually, if I remember accurately I went to the airport to take a business trip in the morning last year. But I got up late and I got stuck in the traffic tram on my way to airport. So I ran as fast as possible to get to the airport. It was such a rush.

No, I don’t stand finishing things too soon because it would probably make mistakes without careful and considerate work.

Well, I think I would never finish the work for my clients in a hurry, otherwise there would cause lots of errors that would lead to terrible loss to my clients. That is not acceptable.

From my own perspective, there are a couple of factors that contribute to the mistake-making during the rush. On the top of my mind, lacking of long-term consideration is the thing that contribute to the mistake that people make when they’re in a hurry.

        Hello, Pirlo, is this your English name? I am not sure. OK, excuse me. Well, I come across a question that says “What kinds of water facilities are there in china?”, and I feel a little confused about ” water facilities”. That means boat? or ships? or water park that provide many interesting facilities for people to play? or something else? Could you give me some ideas about this, please? Thank you so much! )

          Well, I reckon that the water facility refer to water treatment facility that can remove all dissolved metals and chemicals before going into the river.
