IELTS Speaking Tips

Is the expression "That is an interesting question" always acceptable? 🤔

Mmmm, that is an interesting question 😁

The answer is 'no'. The expression should be used only when the question(s) is(are) indeed interesting or require genuine consideration.

Let us see some cases in this point below 👇🏻

Situation 1

👤 Examiner: Do you live in a house or in a flat?

Well, that is an interesting question....

Oh really? Is that? 🤦‍♂️

Situation 2

👤 Examiner: Is it important to protect wild animals?

Well, that is an interesting question...

Good Use 👍

Summing it all up, avoid unnatural answers. Make sure the expressions are in the correct context.
