Dear all, please leave me some comments about my answer. Every remarks are high appreciated!
Tell me about the house/flat you live in.

Answer:
Well first of all, the main thing you need to know is that I am living in a small flat, only approximate 40 square meter. In fact, it is a beautiful flat. There is a living room where I has been hung a lot of picture of my family and friends. Plus I also decorate some flowers on the wall and on my desk in front of the window. I sleep there sometime. Besides, there are a bathroom, a kitchen and upstairs. On top of that I can also add that there is a front yard that I have been sharing with my neighbors which means neighbors' children often come here to play their favorite games, especially football. Something else that I need to comment on is that there is a back small garden. So actually, it is the most wonderful part of my flat where I often grow little flowers, bonsais and have small parties with my friends at weekends.

Even though this typescript is required for speaking, putting commas between phrases is a must.
Tips for commas: read one of your sentences aloud and see where you would naturally pause, where you would draw a breath. If it's a short pause, like that just was, you probably need a comma.

You are being asked some familiar questions in IELTS speaking part 1. Your task is to response the questions briefly.
If you think you need to elaborate the responses, like you did above. My suggestion: save it for the second and third parts.

Hope this helps :D

Well, for the IELTS Speaking task 1, you need to have a more friendly and cool approach. Your score would depend on how well you set up the interaction between you and the examiner.

So, have a more simple tone;
STEP I;Answer the question direct;
Well, I live in a flat.
STEP 2: Now expand on your answer introducing more details ;
It is a small flat which is about 40 square meter in floor area. It has one bedroom, living room and a kitchen.
Though it's small in size, I like it's location and the design.

The above would be enough for you to handle that 4 to 5 mins allowed for this task :)
