Marriage is a relationship that is made in heaven, the kind where two souls meet to have a beautiful life. However, in today’s time, people often get into relationships quicker than most people change their clothes. Sometimes, therefore these relationships do not work out. People then believe that there is a fault in marriage as an institution. Everyone can have their own opinion about things, but this time we are looking at a cue card on marriage.
Describe a happily married couple. You should say:
- how do you know them?
- how long is their marriage?
- what do you like about their marriage?
Also, explain, why do you think they are happily married?
I have been quite sceptical about marriages for a long period of time until a very close friend of mine got married. Today I am going to talk about her marriage. There are very few close comrades that I have but out of them, a special friend of mine got married last year. It was an arranged marriage and to me it felt like the biggest mistake she has done! Her husband is a techie and she is a travel blogger. I felt she will have to compromise on her career to ensure her relationship works fine.
I met here a few months back, to know that her husband is completely supportive of her career and respects her choices. She told me about an incident where she had got a big assignment and it collided with the marriage of an important person in their family. Her husband, without informing her, told everyone in the family that they would not be able to make it because of his work priorities. For me it was a beautiful gesture.
It has only been a year and I have met the guy just a few times but we have become really good friends in the short course of time. It feels more like a family and I really love them as a couple. The one thing that I believe makes their marriage work, is irrespective of the differences they have, they respect each other and their choices. The fact that no one is forcing oneself on others, I believe makes them the best couple I have ever met.

Often in life, we are faced with situations where we wish to go to a quiet place. Places that help us clear the clutter inside our head and make right decisions. This time we are looking at a cue card that talks about quiet place.
Describe a quiet place that you like to go.
You should say :
- where it is ?
- when you go there?
- why you like the place?
also, explain when was the last time you went there?
I am an extrovert as an individual and usually prefer loud places, with parties or gatherings going on. However, there are certain times when I do like being in quiet. Times when things go out of hand and I am unable to make a correct decision. Or situations where I feel emotionally drained. For these moments, I prefer going on a long walk during the evenings towards the Cantonment area. It is around 100 mts from my place and post that there are trees on both the sides of the road and less of vehicles going up and down from the area in the evenings.
Also, there are guards at almost every 100 mt distance, making it a safe place. In the area, there is a park, where people usually go for jogging and after a long walk I like sitting there. Most of the times I gaze stars from there and help my mind to be out of every thought it has and meditate.
I remember the last time I went there was when I had a huge fight with my best friend. He started questioning my being and it felt bad. There were acquisition and all of a sudden I started questioning all relationships. Things were going bizarre and I went for a long walk in the evening.
Often in life, we get into some exciting situations, the kind of where we do not know what exactly needs to be done but the mere fact that there will be so much fun, we get dragged into it. This time we are looking at a recent IELTS cue card that talks about an exciting situation one have been into.
Describe a situation that was new and exciting for you. You should say:
- when was it?
- when did it happen?
- what did you do?
and explain why it was exciting and how you felt about it?
Over a period of time, I have realized that if you love doing something it always brings new opportunities and excitement in life. Today, I am going to talk about a thrilling day I got to spent because of my job. It was a few years back and I was working for a writing company back then. My job was to create new blogs for their website and it was mostly working from home. However, I used to often go to the office to meet the staff and my senior for inputs on the website.
One day, my senior asked me to write a script for the product the company will be releasing in the upcoming quarter. It sounded so exciting to me that once I had written the script I thought the work was done. Until one day I was told that I will be the assistant director for the shoot. The day of the shoot came on a fly. On the day of the shoot, I got to meet the best photographer of our town and then a really good actress. The entire day when by in cuts, retakes and it was really exciting.
The mere fact that I was on the sets of a shoot gave me goosebumps. The takes and retakes made feel as if I am a director. I remember coming back home late and my mother scolding me, but it was the best day I had lived in some while and nothing else mattered.
IELTS Cue Card ‘Story about space’
Describe a story about space (real or fictitious) that you have read about or seen in a film or on TV.
You should say:
- when you read about or saw the story
- what happened in the story?
- whether the story has any significance today
- and explain how you felt about this story.
I am a person of varied taste when it comes to reading a book, watching a movie and or listening to music. When it comes to movies, I prefer watching sci-fi the most. Today I would like to talk about a Hollywood sci-fi movie “The Martian” 2015. Mark was the lead character, which was played by Matt Damon.
The plot of the movie is pretty simple yet it keeps you woven and intrigued. Mark gets stranded on Mars because of a storm, his team thinks he is dead, as the last telemetry from his suit indicates no sign of life. From here on his journey of survival on Mars begins. Mark, being a botanist, improvises a farm inside the habitat utilising Martian soil fertilized with human waste. He even produces water by extracting hydrogen from leftover rocket fuel, and utilizes the stock of potatoes he had from his expedition to make new crop of potatoes for himself, as he was to stay there for another 4 years before help could be sent to him.
The story-line has a huge significance with today’s age as we are eagerly looking forward to colonise the Mars. Even NASA assisted the filmmakers with depicting the science and technology in ‘The Martian’ since it saw the movie has a potential of promoting space exploration.
Right from my early childhood days, like any other kid of my age I was really fascinated by outer space, the universe and the explorations made by the astronauts. One thing which has always fascinated me, is the possibility of life on the other planets. To an extent, the movie has answered this question and also solidified my belief regarding the possibility of life beyond our planet Earth. (287 Words)
