Hello, and welcome to Study English, IELTS Preparation. I'm Margot Politis.

0:18

To prepare for IELTS it is useful to consider the topic of holidays and what people do in

0:23

their leisure time.

0:25

To start us off, let's listen to someone talking about his holidays:

0:30

It's always been a dream of mine to travel around the world and see as many countries

0:33

as possible. I suppose everyone dreams of this, although some people are content to

0:37

stay close to home. I get about 4 weeks annual leave and I try and take it in summer when

0:42

I can link it to the public holidays that fall around then - Christmas, Boxing Day New

0:46

Year's Eve, and turn it into a 3 or 4 week vacation. I try to get out of the country

0:53

and go on a trip somewhere. Somewhere like Bali, somewhere close. We get about 7 public

1:02

holidays in Australia - Christmas, Easter, and Australia Day just to name a few.

1:07

He talked about holidays and vacations. What's the difference?

1:13

A holiday can be one day or several days, whereas a vacation is usually understood to

1:19

be a long time - a week or more. Vacation is a word used more in the United States and

1:26

is not very common in Australia. In Australia we say "summer holidays" instead of "summer

1:33

vacation".

1:34

Listen to our speaker again:

1:37

I get about 4 weeks annual leave and I try and take it in summer when I can link it to

1:42

the public holidays that fall around then - Christmas, Boxing Day New Year's Eve, and

1:46

turn it into a 3 or 4 week vacation.
