In IELTS Speaking Part 1, you will definitely be asked questions about what you ‘like’ or ‘enjoy’.

A student in our 3 Keys IELTS course asked:

I read the expression ‘whooped in the glow‘ in a magazine article. What does that mean?

Whoop‘ is to yell with delight.

You can say, ‘Everyone was whooping it up‘ if many people were yelling excitedly.

You can also use the phrase ‘jump up and down with glee‘.

This describes an action when you just can’t contain your excitement, and you jump and down because you’re so excited.

Or, you can use the phrase ‘bask in the glow of (something)‘.

For example, if people are congratulating or complimenting you, or you are around a lot of positive energy, you can say ‘basking in the glow of the praise/energy‘.

Use this on the test to describe your positive feelings after a fantastic experience.

The last phrase is ‘I couldn’t contain myself/my excitement/laughter‘, if you can’t control your emotions and they come out spontaneously.
