Speaking Answer For IELTS Exam

The Topic – Sports on Television you would like to try

Whenever I watch sports on television I am really fascinated with winter sports. As I live in India so we do not have much of winter sports because of the climate. When I see people skiing or doing ice-skating, even I feel that once in my lifetime, I should try these sports. I am attracted towards the snow slopes and when I watch the skiers, travelling over the snow on skis, I feel that it really must be an enjoyable and thrilling experience. So I have decided to visit some cold region during winters where I would like to try this sport. The equipment’s needed for this are skis poles, helmets and goggles and I would need a trainer for few days to train me. The Alpine or downhill skiing is the most popular form of this and it is a much sought after recreational activity and sports practiced in snow-covered regions worldwide. Basically, it is a race between the skiers and they have to navigate a series of alternating red and blue gates down the hill. So, whenever I get a chance I would like to try this sport in the future.
