IELTS Speaking Band 9 Sample Answer Transcript


So I’d like to talk about a journey that I took when I was a little kid. Together with my family, I went to the Grand Canyon, which is a popular tourist attraction. It’s a national park in the United States. And I know we traveled by car. Umm, I can’t remember how long the trip was but I’d guess it was about a week. And the reason we went on this trip? Well, it was probably because my parents wanted to take me for a nice trip, a nice family trip.


That’s a common thing to do, um, with some families. But the reason I remember this journey so well is not because the Grand Canyon was amazing. I’m sure it was. But there was something else that happened while I was on this journey. And that was…on the trip…on our way to the Grand Canyon, um, we stopped by a book store. And, you know, I liked reading books a little bit when I was a kid so um, my I think my mom recommended this particular book to me. And I don’t remember what it was right now but we bought the book because she said “Oh this is a good idea. You might want to read this book.”


And so, she gave it to me and in the car, probably for about four hours or five hours, instead of looking out at all of the scenery and at all of these new places we were driving to, I just had my head in my book. I don’t think I looked up at all and I just read the book from cover to cover for like four or five hours…just sitting in the car in the back seat instead of looking at whatever beautiful nature they wanted me to look at. I know they gave me a little bit of a hard time about it, but, hey, you know, um, it was a memorable journey for sure (be)cause even to this day I still remember reading that book in the car and really enjoying it and having a really good time with it. So yeah, that’s my story.

شیوه ساخت جملات مجهول در زبان انگلیسی و کاربرهای ساختار مجهول در زبان انگلیسی و آیلتس


active vs passive


یکی از پر کاربردترین ساختارهای زبان انگلیسی جملات مجهول است چرا که به لحاظ فرهنگی انگلیسی ها اهمیت چندانی به کننده کار یعنی فاعل نمیدهند و معمولا مثل ما ایرانی ها به دنبال مقصر یا انجام دهند کار نیستند . مثلا در ایران به محظی که بگوییم شیشه شکست همه به دنبال مقصرهستند و میپرسند که چه کسی شیشه را شکست ولی در زبان انگلیسی بخصوص در انگلیسی فرمال یعنی انگلیسی آکادمیک و متن های علمی به زبان انگلیسی و همچنین در Writing آیلتس چه در IELTS Writing task 1 و چه در IELTS Writing task 2 معمولا ساختار مجهول بکار میرود چرا که دوباره فاعل اهمیتی ندارد یا اینکه در تسک 1 رایتینگ آیلتس اصلا اطلاعاتی در مورد فاعل و تهیه کننده مثلا چارت یا نمودار به ما داده نشده است. به همین دلیل همه زبان آموزان و بخصوص کسانی که قصد آمادگی برای آزمون آیلتس را دارند حتما باید طریقه ساختن جملات مجهول و همچنین کاربرد درست جملات مجهول در زبان انگلیسی و در متنهای انگلیسی را به خوبی فرا بگیرند. لذا از اساتید آیلتس و زبان خود بخواهید که در مورد زمان مجهول توضیحات لازم را به شما بدهند و تمارین لازم برای یادگیری درست این ساختار را به شما بدهند. البته در این سایت ما سعی داریم تا تمامی گرامر آیلتس را به صورت شفاف و کامل برای همه متقاضیان آیلتس که در دوره آیلتس ما شرکت میکنند و همچنین کسانی که آیلتس خود خوان را تجربه میکنند توضیح دهیم. برای یادگیری نکات گرامر دیگر در آیلتس اینجا کلیک بفرمایید.



کاربرد جملات مجهول ( FUNCTIONS OF THE PASSIVE VOICE )


 جملات مجهول برای تکیه بر شخص یا شیئی که عملی را تجربه میکنند بکار میرود نه برای اشاره به فاعل و انجام دهند کار. به مثالهای زیر توجه کنید :


  • The passive voice is used frequently. (= we are interested in the passive voice, not in who uses it.)
  • The house was built in 1654. (= we are interested in the house, not in who built it.)
  • The road is being repaired. (= we are interested in the road, not in the people who are doing the repairs.)


.برخی اوقات ما از ساختار مجهول به این دلیل استفاده میکنیم که شناختی نسبت به فاعل نداریم یا عمدا نمیخواهیم به فاعل اشاره کنیم


  • I noticed that a window had been left open.
  • Every year thousands of people are killed on our roads.
  • All the cookies have been eaten.
  • My car has been stolen!

جملات مجهول معمولا در انگلیسی رسمی بکار میروند بخصوص در رایتینگ . تبدیل جملات به معلوم رایتینگ شما را شفاف تر و درک آن را راحتتر میکند.




A great deal of meaning is conveyed by a few well-chosen words. A few well-chosen words convey a great deal of meaning.
Our planet is wrapped in a mass of gases. A mass of gases wrap around our planet.
Waste materials are disposed of in a variety of ways. The city disposes of waste materials in a variety of ways.

 اگر شما مایل هستید که به فاعل در جملات مجهول اشاره کنید باید از حرف اضافه by در انتهای جمله استفاده کنید و سپس فاعل را اضافه میکنیم . ولی اگر فعال مشخص هست بهتر است از جملات معلوم استفاده شود.





"A Hard Day's Night" was written by the Beatles. The Beatles wrote "A Hard Day's Night".
The movie ET was directed by Spielberg. Spielberg directed the movie ET.
This house was built by my father. My father built this house.


( FORMING THE PASSIVE VOICE )  فرمول ساخت جملات مجهول


جملات مجهول در زبان انگلیسی از دو بخش تشکیل میشوند : شکل درست فعل بودن و قسمت سوم فعل


The passive voice in English is composed of two elements:

the appropriate form of the verb 'to be' + past participle



Negative Interrogative


The house was built in 1899. The house wasn't built in 1899. Was the house built in 1899?


Wasn't the house built in 1899?


These houses were built in 1899. These houses weren't built in 1899. Were these houses built in 1899? Weren't these houses built in 1899?


Subject+ to be (conjugated)+ past participle


+ rest of sentence


Simple present ( مجهول حال ساده )


The house is cleaned every day.


Present continuous (  مجهول حال استمراری )


The house is being cleaned at the moment.


Simple past مجهول گذشته ساده )


The house was cleaned yesterday.


Past continuous مجهول گذشته استمراری )


The house was being cleaned last week.


Present perfect مجهول حال کامل )


The house has been cleaned since you left.


Past perfect مجهول گذشته کامل )


The house had been cleaned before they arrived.


Future مجهول آینده )


The house will be cleaned next week.


Future continuous مجهول آینده استمراری )


The house will be being cleaned tomorrow.


Present conditional مجهول شرطی حال )


The house would be cleaned if they had visitors.


Past conditional مجهول شرطی گذشته )


The house would have been cleaned if it had been dirty.


Infinitive مجهول مصدر )


The house must be cleaned before we arrive.

The infinitive passive voice is used after modal verbs and other most verbs normally followed by an infinitive.


  • You have to be tested on your English grammar.
  • John might be promoted next year.
  • She wants to be invited to the party.
  • expect to be surprised on my birthday.
  • You may be disappointed.

Gerunds are used after prepositions and verbs normally followed by a gerund.


  • remember being taught to drive.
  • The children are excited about being taken to the zoo.
  • The children are excited to be taken to the zoo.
  • Most film stars hate being interviewed.
  • Most film stars hate to be interviewed.
  • Poodles like to be pampered.
  • Poodles like being pampered.

"To be born" is a passive form and is most commonly used in the past tense. However, in some cases, the present or future tense is appropriate.




  • I was born in 1976.
  • Where were you born?
  • Around 100 babies are born in this hospital every week.
  • We don't know on exactly which day the baby will be born.

برخی اوقات برای ساختن جمله مجهول در زبان انگلیسی ازفعل get یا have بجای to be استفاده میشود. روشهای دیگر برای ساخت جملات مجهول را در زیر یاد بگیرید.




You can form sentences that are passive in meaning but not in form by using the verb to get or the verb to have in place of the verb to be. These constructions often describe situations where we want someone else to do something for us or where we are going to hire someone else to do something for us. The subject is active, but he is only doing the "getting". It is the unnamed person who is gotten who will perform the action of the main verb in the sentence. That second person is not explicit in the sentence when the sentence has a passive meaning. We are more interested in the result of the activity than in the person that performs the activity.


  • I must get my hair cut.
  • I must have my hair cut.
  • When are you going to get that window mended?
  • We're having the house painted.


This type of construction can refer to the completion of an activity, especially if a time expression is used.


  • We'll get the work done as soon as possible.
  • I'll get those letters typed before lunchtime.
  • She said she'd have my lunch delivered by noon.
  • You should have your roof repaired before next winter.


If the verb refers to something unwanted, it has the same meaning as a passive sentence.


  • Jim had his car stolen last night.
  • Jim's car was stolen.
  • They had their roof blown off in the storm.
  • Their roof was blown off in the storm.

You can also use the verb to need followed by the gerund in an active construction with a passive meaning. The important thing in our minds in these sentences is the person or thing that will experience the action, not the person performing the action.


  • The ceiling needs painting.
  • The ceiling needs to be painted.
  • My hair needs cutting.
  • My hair needs to be cut.
  • That faucet needs fixing.
  • That faucet needs to be fixed.

 چرا تدریس خصوصی آیلتس و تدریس خصوصی زبان انگلیسی در تهران محبوبیت بیشتری نسبت به کلاسهای گروهی آیلتس و زبان انگلیسی نظیر کلاسهای مکالمه دارد؟

در واقعا انتخاب یک دوره خصوصی آیلتس خوب اولین قدم در موفقیت در آزمون آیلتس واقعی است چرا که یک استاد آیلتس خوب نقاط ضعف و قوت دانشجویان در آزمون ielts را به خوبی میشناسد و درمانی مناسب برای رفع مشکلات دانشجویان در آیلتس دارد .


و مهمتر اینکه برای تقویت زبان عمومی متقاضیان آیلتس که یکی از فاکتورهای اساسی در افزایش سطح شرکت کنندگان آیلتس و عاملی تعیین کننده در قسمتهای listening و speaking آیلتس و همچنین اخذ پذیرش تحصیلی و یا اقامت کاری از کشورهایی مثل کانادا استرالیا انگلستان و ... است تمارین و روش تدریس آیلتس مناسبی دارد.


کلاس خصوصی آیلتس به چند صورت قابل اجرا میباشد :


1 .دوره فشرده آیلتس خصوصی که برای زبان آموزانی با وقت کم بسیار مناسب است. در این دوره آیلتس استاد بصورت مستقیم بر تمامی تمرینها و تستهایی که دانشجو میزند سر کلاس نظارت دارد و در همان لحظه اشکالات دانشجو را برطرف میکند تا در کمترین زمان ممکن سطح زبان و نمره آیلتس متقاضی را افزایش دهد.


2. دوره فشرده آنلاین آیلتس خصوصی : که در این دوره آیلتس خصوصی استاد بصورت فیس تو فیس و کلاس آیلتس زنده برگزار میشود تا دانشجوی آیلتس نیازی به خارج شدن از منزل و رفت به کلاس آیلتس چه بصورت عمومی چه بصورت خصوصی نداشته باشد و در زمان بیش از پیش صرفه جویی کند و بدین ترتیب وقتی را که باید در رفت و آمد به کلاس زبان تلف کند را صرف مطالعه آیلتس و تمرکز بر روی نقاط ضعف خود در آیلتس نماید.


3. کلاس تک مهارت یا همان تک اسکیل آیلتس مثلا کلاس خصوصی اسپیکینگ آیلتس ، کلاس خصوصی لیستنینگ آیلتس ، کلاس خصوصی رایتینگ آیلتس ، کلاس خصوصی ریدینگ آیلتس : در این نوع کلاس خصوصی آیلتس تمرکز بر روی یک مهارت آیلتس خواهد بود بطوری که تمام نکات آیلتس مربوط به یک مهارت آموزش داده خواهد شد و سپس بر روی انواع سوالات در آن مهارت آیلتس کار و تمرین بیشتر خواهد شد تا زبان آموز به مهارت لازم در آن مهارت برسد.


4. کلاس جامع 4 مهارت آیلتس یا دوره ielts total course : دکتر آرین کریمی به عنوان با سابقه ترین استاد آیلتس در ایران تا به حال برگزار کننده هزاران دوره موفق آیلتس بوده است و به عنوان استاد موفق آیلتس مفتخر به تربیت بیشت از 3000 دانشجوی آیلتس تا کنون شده است . تجربه کار با حدود 3000 دانشجوی آیلتس پشتوانه بسیار محکم و تضمینی بر موفقیت شما در آیلتس خواهد بود چرا که هیچ چیز جای تجربه را نمیتواند بگیرد و برای استاد خوب آیلتس بودن تنها داشتن دانش زبان انگلیسی کافی نیست تجربه تدریس آیلتس عاملی کلیدی در این امر است.

 امروزه پیدا کردن یک استاد آیلتس خصوصی یا یک استاد زبان جهت تقویت مکالمه تبدیل شده به یکی از دغدغه های بزرگ مردم چرا که اکثر کسانی که به دنبال تدریس خصوصی آیلتس یا تدریس خصوصی زبان هستند با حجم زیادی از تبلیغات تدریس خصوصی زبان و آیلتس رو برو میشن و چون خود زبان آموزان توانایی تشخیص یک استاد با تجربه آیلتس را از یک استاد تازه کار که با تبلیغات  گوگلی و پول خرج کردن زیاد خود را متخصص آیلتس معرفی میکند نیستند و ما برای رفع این مشکل اساتید زبان و آیلتس و تافل را دعوت میکنیم و پس از مصاحبه و مطمئن شدن از توانایی استاد برای تدریس خصوصی آیلتس یا تدریس خصوصی تافل یا تدریس خصوصی مکالمه بر اساس توانایی استاد به آنها زبان آموز معرفی میکنیم با این روش تمامی اساتید عضو گروه آموزشی دکتر آرین کریمی از فیلتر ایشان رد شده اند و شما به راحتی و با اطمینان میتوانید با استاد زبان خود دوره آیلتس یا دوره زبان خصوصی خود را آغاز کنید از سوی دیگر اگر به هر دلیلی یک دانشجو از استاد زبان خود یا استاد آیلتس و تافل خود راضی نباشد میتواند در هر مرحله از دوره آیلتس خود به راحتی درخواست نماید تا استاد دیگری به او معرفی شود چون بعضی اوقات ممکن است شما از روش کار یک استاد خوشتان نیاید و این دلیلی بر بد بودن استاد یا عدم توانایی وی نیست بله این امر تا حدود زیادی سلیقه ای است و هر دانشجو ممکن است با یک روش آموزش زبان راحت تر زبان را یاد بگیرد. ضمنا امکان شرکت در کلاس خصوصی آیلتس در موسسه ما و  در منزل دانشجو و همچنین بصورت کلاس خصوصی آنلاین آیلتس امکانپذیر میباشد.

how to get prepared for the IELTS test

 Prepare for your IELTS test


Make sure you are ready to demonstrate your English language skills


Understand the ielts test format


Familiarise yourself with the format of the ielts test by reviewing the content of the test, as well as the question and task types for each section. It’s also important to read through the IELTS rules and regulations. These are laid out in the Notice to Candidates and Declaration which are included in the application form.



 IELTS Test format


The IELTS test assesses your abilities in listening, reading, writing and speaking – in less than three hours.


There are two types of the IELTS test:  IELTS Academic and IELTS General Training. Listening and Speaking are the same for both tests, but the subject matter of the Reading and Writing components differs depending on which test you take.


The Listening, Reading and Writing components of all IELTS tests are completed on the same day, with no breaks in between them.


The Speaking component, however, can be completed up to a week before or after the other tests. Your test centre will advise.


The total test time is 2 hours and 45 minutes.


  • Listening
  • Academic Reading
  • General Training Reading
  • Academic Writing
  • General Training Writing
  • Speaking


Test format – Listening


30 minutes


You will listen to four recordings of native English speakers and then write your answers to a series of questions.


  • Recording 1 – a conversation between two people set in an everyday social context.
  • Recording 2 - a monologue set in an everyday social context, e.g. a speech about local facilities.
  • Recording 3 – a conversation between up to four people set in an educational or training context, e.g. a university tutor and a student discussing an assignment.
  • Recording 4 - a monologue on an academic subject, e.g. a university lecture.


Assessors will be looking for evidence of your ability to understand the main ideas and detailed factual information, the opinions and attitudes of speakers, the purpose of an utterance and evidence of your ability to follow the development of ideas.


IELTS Listening description


Paper format

There are four sections with ten questions each. The questions are designed so that the answers appear in the order they are heard in the audio.

The first two sections deal with situations set in everyday social contexts. In Section 1, there is a conversation between two speakers (for example, a conversation about travel arrangements), and in Section 2, there is a monologue in (for example, a speech about local facilities). The final two sections deal with situations set in educational and training contexts. In Section 3, there is a conversation between two main speakers (for example, two university students in discussion, perhaps guided by a tutor), and in Section 4, there is a monologue on an academic subject.

The recordings are heard only once. They include a range of accents, including British, Australian, New Zealand, American and Canadian.




Approximately 30 minutes (plus 10 minutes transfer time).



No. of questions




Task types


A variety of question types are used, chosen from the following: multiple choice, matching, plan/map/diagram labelling, form/note/table/flow-chart/summary completion, sentence completion.




Test takers write their answers on the question paper as they listen and at the end of the test are given 10 minutes to transfer their answers to an answer sheet. Care should be taken when writing answers on the answer sheet as poor spelling and grammar are penalised.




Each question is worth 1 mark.



IELTS Listening in detail


Task type 1 – Multiple choice


Task type and format


In multiple choice tasks, there is a question followed by three possible answers, or the beginning of a sentence followed by three possible ways to complete the sentence. Test takers are required to choose the one correct answer - A, B or C.


Sometimes, test takers are given a longer list of possible answers and told that they have to choose more than one. In this case, they should read the question carefully to check how many answers are required.


Task focus


Multiple choice questions are used to test a wide range of skills. The test taker may be required to have a detailed understanding of specific points or an overall understanding of the main points of the listening text.


No. of questions





Task type 2 – Matching


Task type and format


Test takers are required to match a numbered list of items from the listening text to a set of options on the question paper. The set of options may be criteria of some kind.


Task focus


Matching assesses the skill of listening for detail and whether a test taker can understand information given in a conversation on an everyday topic, such as the different types of hotel or guest house accommodation. It also assesses the ability to follow a conversation between two people. It may also be used to assess test takers’ ability to recognise relationships and connections between facts in the listening text.


No. of questions





Task type 3 – Plan, map, diagram labelling


Task type and format


Test takers are required to complete labels on a plan (eg of a building), map (eg of part of a town) or diagram (e.g. of a piece of equipment). The answers are usually selected from a list on the question paper.


Task focus


This type of task assesses the ability to understand, for example, a description of a place, and to relate this to a visual representation. This may include being able to follow language expressing spatial relationships and directions (e.g. straight on/through the far door).


No. of questions





Task type 4 – Form, note, table, flow-chart, summary completion


Task type and format


Test takers are required to fill in the gaps in an outline of part or of all of the listening text. The outline will focus on the main ideas/facts in the text. It may be: 

 1. a form: often used to record factual details such as names
 2. a set of notes: used to summarise any type of information using the layout to show how different items relate to one another
 3. a table: used as a way of summarising information which relates to clear categories – e.g. place/time/price, 
 4. a flow-chart: used to summarise a process which has clear stages, with the direction of the process shown by arrows.


Test takers may have to select their answers from a list on the question paper or identify the missing words from the recording, keeping to the word limit stated in the instructions. Test takers do not have to change the words from the recording in any way.


Test takers should read the instructions very carefully as the number of words or numbers they should use to fill the gaps will vary. A word limit is given, for example, ‘NO MORE THAN TWO WORDS AND/OR A NUMBER’. Test takers are penalised for writing more than the stated number of words, and test takers should check this word limit carefully for each task. Contracted words will not be tested. Hyphenated words count as single words.


Task focus


This focuses on the main points which a listener would naturally record in this type of situation.


No. of questions





Task type 5 – Sentence completion


Task type and format


Test takers are required to read a set of sentences summarising key information from all the listening text or from one part of it. They then fill a gap in each sentence using information from the listening text. A word limit is given, for example, ‘NO MORE THAN ONE WORD AND/OR A NUMBER’.


Test takers are penalised for writing more than the stated number of words. (Test takers should check this word limit carefully for each task: the limit is either ONE, TWO or THREE words). Contracted words will not be tested. Hyphenated words count as single words.


Task focus


Sentence completion focuses on the ability to identify the key information in a listening text. Test takers have to understand functional relationships such as cause and effect.


No. of questions





Task type 6 – Short-answer questions


Task type and format


Test takers are required to read a question and then write a short answer using information from the listening text. A word limit is given, for example, ‘NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS AND/OR A NUMBER’. Test takers are penalised for writing more than the stated number of words. (Test takers should check this word limit carefully for each task.) Contracted words will not be tested. Hyphenated words count as single words. Sometimes test takers are given a question which asks them to list two or three points.


Task focus


Sentence completion focuses on the ability to listen for concrete facts, such as places, prices or times, within the listening text.


No. of questions





IELTS Listening – how it's marked


The Listening test is marked by certificated markers, who are regularly monitored to ensure their reliability. All answer sheets, after being marked, are further analysed by Cambridge Assessment English.



Band score conversion


 A Band Score conversion table is produced for each version of the Listening test which translates scores out of 40 into the IELTS 9-band scale. Scores are reported in whole bands and half bands.


One mark is awarded for each correct answer in the 40-item test. Care should be taken when writing answers on the answer sheet as poor spelling and grammar are penalised.


Practise with sample test questions


Completing sample test materials is helpful in preparing for your test. These will give you an idea of what to expect in the Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking tests.


Official IELTS practice materials


You may find it helpful to do a practice test. IELTS has developed two sets of official practice materials, designed to help you understand the test format and the types of test questions.




Vol. 1 Official IELTS Practice Materials (with CD)

Vol. 2 Official IELTS Practice Materials (with DVD)

Both volumes of the practice materials offer samples of the Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking tests with sample answers and examiner comments. The CD in Vol. 1 offers samples of the Listening test and the DVD in Vol. 2 shows test takers taking the Speaking test. These are the only IELTS practice materials endorsed by the IELTS partners. You can purchase official IELTS sample materials from Cambridge University Press (click on the links above), or from an IELTS test centre.
