IELTS Speaking Part 2 – Describe a science subject that you learned in high school

You should say:

  • what subject it was
  • who taught you this subject
  • what you learned from it

and explain how this subject helped you in your life.

Well, science was one of my favorite subjects in school because it was really interesting and knowledgeable. It was, in fact, the warehouse of knowledge. It helped me to improve my intellectual capacity.

If I talk about a favorite science subject, there were three major branches of science – biology, physics, and chemistry. However, my favorite was biology. It was taught by Mr. Minh. I liked it for different reasons.

Biology is basically study life. It tells us about different species, their origin, structure and various functions. Through biology, I came to know some astonishing facts about life. I learned some interesting things about the human body, plants, and animals.

I got to know that there are about 1.5 million species on earth. I also learned about the evolution of species. Charles Darwin’s ‘Theory of Evolution’ was an eye-opener.  It was quite funny to know that monkeys were our ancestors and it took millions of years for us to get the present shape of the body.

Moreover, there were some incredible facts about the human body as well. I came to know that human body is one of the most beautiful yet most complicated structures on the earth. Human anatomy was my favorite section of biology. In this section, I got to know about the functions of different systems in the body like respiratory system, digestive system, circulatory system, nervous system etc.

All in all, studying biology was always a fascinating experience.  It was highly knowledgeable and I really enjoyed it. Thanks
