Speaking

Here’s a sample question from the IELTS speaking part 3:

In your experience are people too quick to take time off work when they’re ill?

And here’s a sample answer for that question:

Well, in my opinion it is important to take time off work when you’re ill. I know most people think that it’s a sign of weakness or laziness, but I think it’s actually irresponsible to go into work when you’re sick. You might spread your illness to other people. So I believe that if many people in my country are taking time off work when they’re ill, it’s a good thing.
