IELTS Cue Card: Talk about learning English

 

You must say:
• How long have you been learning English?
• Where did you learn?
• What is easy/ difficult?
• Is English important in your job?

 

Cue Card Sample Answer:

In today’s globalized world, English is considered as a lingua franca. Today, I’m going to talk about how I learnt this foreign language. Well, I have been in touch with English since my primary school. So, I am an early starter. But, to be honest, I didn’t take English seriously in my school days and studied this language just for examination purposes. Considering its difficulty level, I was well-versed with the reading and writing but I found it very difficult to communicate in English. When I reached the university level, I faced many problems while expressing my views. Therefore, I decided to pay attention to my communication skills, grammar and vocabulary. My English Professor has an imperative role in motivating me.
It’s been five years since I began working on my verbal communication skills. Today, I can confidently claim that I have effective presentation skills and my hard work has been paid off. As I am working as a human resource manager, English plays a pivotal role in my job. I have to interact with the staff members and clients on a daily basis. More importantly, to excel in my profession and to bring the best talent to my organization, I have to be a step ahead of others. Definitely, it won’t be possible without the knowledge of English language.

Cue Card # A gift that you presented

Cue Card:

 

 

A gift that you presented 

You must say:

  • What was the gift?
  • What was the occasion?
  • Whom did you give it to?
  • Why was this gift very special?

 

Cue Card Sample Answer:

Gifts play an important role in our lives. Today, I’m going to talk about a present which I gave to my cousin. He works as a marketing executive in a multinational company. Recently, he was promoted to the head of the sales department. To celebrate his achievement, he threw a party and warmly invited me to his house. As per the traditions and customs of our society, I decided to buy a present for him as a token of my warm wishes. For this, I visited a nearby mall but due to the inadequate collection I couldn’t find the best suitable item.

Finally, I found a multi-brand store nearby and I looked for my choice there. Within no time, the salesman showed me an eye-catching set of cufflinks, tie and a pocket square with an attractive packing. That was exactly what I wanted, so I finalized it immediately and I requested the shopkeeper to wrap the same in a decorative wrapping paper. On the eve of the party, I presented it to my cousin. To my surprise, he liked it so much that he wore it on the party night. This gift was unique for several reasons. Firstly, the amount of time and energy I spent in purchasing it. Secondly, it served the purpose and everyone  praised for its appealing color and design. Not to mention, my cousin was looking outstanding with the tie because it was a perfect match with his well-designed black suit.

Discontinue The Membership # Letter For IELTS

You should spend 20 minutes on this task.

For the past one year, you were a member of a local club, but now you wish to discontinue with the membership.

Write a letter to the manager. In your letter,

  • state what kind of membership you had and how much you have paid for it?
  • explain how you have benefited from the club.
  • give reasons on why you want to leave.

You must write at least 150 words.


 

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing in regard to cancel my membership at Gymkhana Public English club.

I enrolled in the club, last year in March and have been paying the monthly fees of Rupees 500. The club has benefited me in several ways by giving numerous opportunities to explore myself. The hesitation of speaking in English that was there initially,got replaced by the confidence of speaking English fluently.

Sadly, given my circumstances, the membership at the club needs to be discontinued. The reason is a great assignment opportunity that has come my way, requiring my undue attention for the next year. Thus, I would no longer be able to attend any activities held in this place. If I am not mistaken, my Rupees 4700 deposit will be returned to me upon membership cancellation.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Satpal Gulia
