What would your perfect holiday look like? You should say –

  • where would it be?
  • whom would you go with?
  • how would you spend it?

also, explain, why do you think it would be perfect?

SAMPLE ANSWER ONE


My perfect holiday would most likely be in a snow decked winter
landscape. Somewhere cold, sunny and high up view to behold.

I would go with my sister, she too adores the fresh mountain
air. And I am sure my cousins would love to tag along, together we would be a
really rowdy bunch. We would go skiing, sledging and ice skating. I can just
imagine their faces when they slip up on the ice, me laughing with them.

We would go to the Christmas Carnival and have delicious hot
chocolate while joking about how are feet are going to freeze off. Baking
cookies and watching some movies when it gets too cold out, all huddled up
together. Making blanket forts after long days of snowball fights and building
snowmen are some other things I imagine we
would do.

It would be perfect, because we would all be together, having
the time of our lives as a family. There is nothing more I could ask for.

SAMPLE ANSWER TWO

Holidays have been an important part of my life. Not only do I like giving it to others, I enjoy them for myself as well. They could be either group trips or solo trips. But, my perfect holiday would be on an all India tour all by myself. It has been my dream for a very long time to be able to travel across India and write down the stories of the country. Of meeting new people and getting to know their stories.

I would start off from my base location and move ahead towards the east. Traveling across all the east, and moving towards north, west and then south. It will be all an all travel to the different cities, the major festivals, major temples, and more importantly the common people of the place. I want to meet all those people and then interview them. Get to know their stories and write about it.

If I am able to do this holiday, it would be the best thing to happen to me. Not because, it will be a big one, but because it would be for me a dream come true. Knowing my country, and getting to know its past, present, and future is what makes this holiday perfect for me.

cue card#made you happy

Describe something that made you happy recently. You should say:
– what was the incident
-when was the incident
-why did make you happy

Sample Answer:

About a week back I had been feeling really stressed out and overworked due to my extra shifts at work. I was having very little sleep and was quite unable to take care of myself.

Over the weekend, my brother came to visit me to see how was getting along. He immediately noticed my put out state and began to worry.The next thing I knew, he was dragging me into town. He took me to all of my favourite city landmarks especially the ones next to the river.

Then we went to this fantastic restaurant and he treated me to the biggest ice cream sundae they had. We had a blast at the arcade followed by a trip to the movies. By the time we go home, I had all but forgotten my worries in my exhausted happiness.

Next morning on waking up I realized what a great time I had had, furthermore I felt more relaxed than I had in a long time. My brother showed me that sometimes all it takes to unwind is going out somewhere and enjoying the moment. This is an incident that will surely become a fond memory someday.

IELTS Cue Card 2018 Questions # Impression

Impressions are an idea, feeling or opinion that we have about someone or something. People form impressions quicker than changing clothes, so if someone has a good impression on you, there certainly must be something in them. This time we are looking at a cue card that talks about a person you recently met and had a good impression on you.

Describe a person you recently met and you would like to meet him or her more. You should say:

  • who is the person?
  • what did you talk about?
  • why would you like to meet again?

also explain, what impressed you about him or her?

SAMPLE ANSWER

I am a volunteer for a club in our organisation that looks into the grievances of our employees and tries to make the company a better place to work at. Because of this, I often get to meet a lot of new people. Today, I am going to talk about a person who really impressed me. It was the 15th or 16th of May and our group was planning and organizing an event where leaders had to interact with the employees and understand their grievances.

After the event was over, we started heading back to our cubicles when one of the participants came up and started some small talk. After after few days, the guy pinged me and we met over a cup of tea. He told me about so many issues that employees were facing and then we shifted our conversation towards how to improve the organisation. It was a fascinating discussion and we decided to meet again and to do something about it.

The one thing that I really liked about him was that he did not limited himself to just an idle conversation or an event. I saw in him the passion for doing something good and even if took him to places unknown he was ready for it. There are very few people who have the courage and I think he really did inspire and impress me a lot.

ielts cue card space story

Sample Answer:


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)
