IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # Favorite Song

We all listen to music, it is for all of us an escape from reality. The times when we feel sad about things, when we feel happy, most often than not we try to express through music. Let us today have a look at a cue card that talks about favorite song.

Describe a song that you like.

You should say:

  • What is it.
  • How often you hear it.
  • What types of people listen to it.

and explain why you like this song.

I really love music and over the years there are lot many songs that have come up to inspire me and help me to get out of the rut that I am living in. But, the one song that I really fell in love and have enjoyed over the years is, “Both Of Us by BOB and Taylor Swift”.

The song is about the people who are trying to fulfill their dreams. It talks off their struggle, their emotions and how they feel when the world rejects them. The singer says that he is there for all of the people who are trying to fulfill their dreams. It is about how it is not about just lifting yourself from rut but also the people near you.

I love this song because in some ways it helps me to stay focused and move on towards my dreams. It is very motivating and the background music is amazing. I remember hearing this song on a loop when the days are tough and I am not able to do anything. Because it is on these days that I can fully relate with this song.

Most of the people hear to it, most probably the ones who are bothered about something or are trying hard to achieve something in their lives. It is that powerful, that strong, that you can actually feel powered hearing it.

favorite song

Our film industry is famous for making songs and we have produced some great songs of all times. But, the one song that helped me in so many different ways was
“Brothers Anthem”. The song is talking to an individual and is persuading him or her to believe that they have the potential and that they love God and now they need work so hard that even God, rises up and asks for his or her wish.
The reason that I love this song is because it is very positive and motivating. It does not talks about what you need not to do but  rather what you have to do for becoming successful. And more importantly, it tries to explain the essence of life. It is truly amazing and one could just go about listening to it again and again.

I remember during my training days, there were times when I was tired and did not knew what to do, there were times when I could not understand anything and in those times I used to listen to this song in a loop. For some reasons, this song gives me the motivation to move ahead in my life, to cross all barriers and just focus on my goal.

I think most of the people listen to this song for the same reason. It has got high beats and when you listen to it in a speaker it gives you the Goosebumps to go out and achieve something.



IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # Building That Impressed You

There are so many  construction sites around the world, so many that we see everyday. It could be an office or a house or may be something with historical importance. No matter what, there are certain buildings which make us go wow. The ones which we want to live in or work for or may be visit again and again. Let us today have a look at a cue card related to a building that impressed you.

Describe a building or construction that you have seen and impressed you.
You should say:
– where it was
– what it looks like
– when did you saw it.

There are lot of buildings that I have visited but the one architecture that has taken me by storm is the Bada Imambara in Lucknow.  Bhool Bhulaiya is a labyrinth of hundreds of narrow stairway passages, some of which have dead-ends, some end at precipitous drops while others lead to entrance or exit points. We went to the place with a guide and even with him there were times when we felt lost.

It was enormous and while taking a stroll down it I realized if while walking on it, it is so difficult to remember where we came from and where we need to go, how would have the people created the architecture. The Bada ImamBara is said to be the world’s largest arched room without any pillars.

I remember my relatives came to our house, while we were living in Lucknow, during I suppose 2002. I was very young that time and going there was amazing. As a child, there were certain things that fascinated me, others I did not understand but whatever it be, it was great to be lost with my family.

Building That Impressed You

Our country has some of the best architectural buildings and I have had the chance of visiting lot of them. But, the one building that I fell in love with was Taj Mahal. Taj Mahal is regarded as the sign of love and there is so much of great architecture in it that anyone can fall in love with it.

I remember having visited the Taj Mahal when I was around 13 years old and it was a truly amazing experience. As kids, we, as in me and my brother were very inquisitive about the place and ended up asking lot of questions to the guide. So, he told us about why it was made and what is the story behind it. But, when you look at Taj Mahal, I believe it was made with so much of true intentions and true love that it gives you peace and makes you calm down.

Taj Mahal was made with white marble inlaid with semi-precious stones. It has got a central dome along with four smaller domes; four slender towers, or minarets, stood at the corners. There are verses from the Quran were inscribed in calligraphy on the arched entrances to the mausoleum, in addition to numerous other sections of the complex. In the lower floor are the domes of Mumtaz Mahal and Shah Jahan.

It is for the love of Mumtaz that Shah Jahan made the Taj Mahal. Although, with the environment issues coming up, there are lot of problems that Taj Mahal has faced, but it still manages to bring in lot of tourists from all around the world.


IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # Computer Games

There is this one thing that most of us have done during their childhood and some do even now and that is playing computer games.Be it playing Mario or the newer games like Counter strike, computer games have always been amazing. Let us today have a look at the questions related to computer games that might be asked as a cue card.

Describe a computer game you have played.

You should say:

  • What it was
  • When you played it
  • What the game was about

And explain how you played this game.

I have never been a huge fan of computer games but the one game that I loved playing as a child on my computer was Mario. I believe Mario is one of the most famous games of our times and it is rarely anyone who has not played the game.

I remember, I was in class fourth when my father brought home computer and at that time the games were sold in CDs. So, me and my friends got a CD and installed it on our computer. We loved the game and played it during holidays. We would have bets as to who will reach to how far a level and how much points a person will score.

We used to keep track of all those things and then if there used to be a tie, we would find out what is the score of the person. There was so much of fun and excitement associated with the game that we hardly got time to think of anything else.

The game was about this guy Mario who was out there to save his queen, so his aim and hence our aim was to make sure that he reaches the queen. To do so, he had to fight lot of enemies and animals and jump through fires and lots more to reach destination.

We used to play the game using keyboard and had some dedicated keys for the particular actions of Mario. Most of the times we used to play in group, but sometimes I even enjoyed playing it alone. But, one thing is for sure, the game was amazing and almost addictive. I have loved it through my entire childhood and remember playing it even when I grew up.

computer games

I loved playing computer games as a child, so me and my friends would figure out what is the new game that is being launched and would go and buy its CD. Although, later on the games started becoming available online and we could transfer games through pen drives, I still believe that there was much more fun associated with buying games from CD.

Although, there have many games like angry birds and counter strike that have come up and surely they are very exciting, but the one game that I still love is Doom. It was an amazing game and almost exciting. So, in this game you had your gun and you need to check out every door and see if their is a killer on the other side and kill it before he does, or their is life on the other side.

And in the midst of all that, find out the key that takes you the next level. I used to play this game alone on my  PC and enjoy. But, me and my brother used to have bets as to who will reach a particular stage faster and who will score the more.

I remember those days and it was so much fun, fighting over the computer and playing games and enjoying life.


IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # Important Day


Describe an important day that you celebrate in your country.

You should say:

  • when do you celebrate it?
  • what is its historical importance
  • who are main people involved in it?

explain how you celebrate the day.

There are lot of days in our country which have got some importance associated with them. From having relegious importance to being very important nationally, we celebrate these days with lot of vigor. One of these days is the republic day which is celebrated every year on 26th of January.

This is the day when the constitution of our country came into effect. Although, the country had made up its constitution and all the 308 members had signed on 24 January 1950, the constitution came into effect on 26-January. This was to mark the importance of 26th January. Two decades back, on this day the Indian people had started celebrating the Independence of the country, even before it had become free. To mark the importance of this event, the day was chosen to celebrate the republic day.

On this day, ceremonious parades take place at the Rajpath, which are performed as a tribute to India; its unity in diversity and rich cultural heritage. The event’s main lead is the President who unfurls the national flag and there are several a-list ministers invited. Along with them, a person from a foreign country is invited to be part of the event. On this day, several bravery awards are given and different schools and the the Indian Army, Indian Navy and Indian Air Force perform the beating retreat.

important day

Lot of more events are held and apart from the main event in Rajpath, it is celebrated across the entire country, with schools and colleges preparing for it for a long period of time. You can hear lot of patriotic songs being played all over the country.

Most of the times, I along with my friends go out to a historical place and figure out more about our country on this day.  Last year, I remember we all sat down to read the constitution of our country. It is always amazing for all of us to know more about a beautiful country like India, we are proud to  be part of.

There are several days which are important to the country and are celebrated with lot of excitement and preparations through out the country. One of the events is the “Rath yatra” that takes place every year in the month of July/June in Puri. This is the day it is believed that God comes out to meet his devotees. What is special about this event is that otherwise, people of other religions apart from Hindus are not allowed in this temple and when the deities do come out, people from all around the world come to see the God and touch him.

It is believed that the one who is able to pull the chariot gets to get rid of all his or her sins. And so people from all over the country come, bare foot to be able to touch the chariot in which the God is taken from the Jagannath temple to the place where they are assumed to rest for some time. There are lot of stories associated with this event. One is that one this day, Lord jagannath with his brother and sister go towards their aunt’s house and in the mean while they forget to visit Laxmi. So, on their journey back, their is this entire drama that takes place where Laxmi refuses to let Jagannath in the house.

One can find lot of plays being enacted for the audience. People watch them and cheer for their God. Every year, it is believed that stampede could be possible and people do die, but the excitement and the faith with which people come to see their God is amazing. People shout, smile and almost loose themselves to be able to just see their God, to touch them.

I visit the Rath yatra at Puri every year and have managed to pull the chariot lot many times.
