IELTS Cue Card, Talk about a person who wears unusual clothes

Talk about a person who wears unusual clothes
You should say:
• Who he/she is
• What kind of clothes he/she wears
• What do you feel about his/her clothing choice


Sample Answer

Fashion and clothing has always been an important part of the society. We have different dress codes for different occasions. It brings out people differently. Today I’m going to talk about one of my friend who dresses in an unusual manner. Her name is Mansi and she is a fashion blogger. She started fashion blogging with one of the most offbeat dressing sense. Her peculiar dressing sense has actually made her one of the most popular fashion model of the town.

She wears saree with jeans and long boots. Sometimes she wears a scarf as a top. She usually wears different types of hats and caps with Indian outfits which gives her a different look. She has never failed to surprise me with her eccentric appearance. Once I saw her wearing a dress made out of newspaper, she wore it for her shoot. Moreover, I have never seen her repeating her outfits. She can literally prepare an outfit from whatever is available, be it newspapers, pieces of old clothes, pillow covers, bedsheets and even towels. She has also started a small business of fashion clothing and named it “Cranky Couture”. Her fashion store is gaining popularity among townspeople.

I believe her clothing choice is quite strange yet impressive. In a short span of two years she has gained a lot of fan following in social media due to her unique dressing style. Going offbeat always makes an individual remarkable. I’ve have never seen someone with such unusual clothing before. Her outfits are sure to turn heads. Whenever I go out with her, people look at her with eyes wide open which actually makes me proud of her and the fact how she is normalising such kind of fashion.


Follow up questions:

Q1. Do you like shopping for new clothes?
Answer: Yes Of course! I love shopping for new clothes. Buying clothes makes me happy and it is the only kind of shopping that I enjoy. I often go for shopping when I do some remarkable work and reward myself with new clothes.

Q2. About how much money do you spend on clothes a year?
Answer: I don’t remember the exact amount, but I think I usually spend around 10,000 to 15,000 Indian Rupees in a year on clothes and I believe that is the minimal amount that an Indian girl spends on her clothing.

Q3. Do people dress the same when they are depressed as they do when they are very happy?
Answer: I feel people dress up differently when they are in different moods. Such as when people are happy they wear bright and colorful clothes, and they actually try to look better than usual. For instance people are most happy when it’s their birthday or some family function, so they try to look best. On the other hand, when people are depressed, they don’t make much efforts to look good.

Q4. What do you think about men who wear earrings?
Answer: I think it is completely their personal choice to wear earrings. Fashion is all about comfort and if men are comfortable with that, we should not judge them. Fashion has no gender. Wearing earrings is their way of expressing their sense of fashion.

Writing Essay # Reduce crime amongst young people is to teach parents good parenting skills

IELTS Writing Essay about reducing crime amongst young people

Academic Writing Task 2
You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.
Write about the following topic:
Write at least 250 words.

The best way to reduce crime amongst young people is to teach parents good parenting skills.
Do you agree or disagree?


Sample Answer

The graph of crimes is on the increase nowadays. These crimes are mostly committed by youngsters, which is definitely a matter of great concern. Many people claim that this is the result of bad parenting as parents are ignorant of their kids activities. However, I disagree with the aforementioned statement and will discuss the same in this essay.

In today’s world society plays an important role in forming an individual’s mindset. Youth learn their behaviour from their surroundings. Present generation is exposed to various exploitative content on social media and internet such as aggressive video games, pornography, crime shows and lot more. I believe even movies encourage social evils as they project lead cast murdering people in name of revenge and take law in their hands which portrays them as heroic. Huge number of youth is getting involved in illegal intoxication because cinema has depicted that taking alcohol and drugs is a casual thing. There are many other social factors like unemployment, peer pressure, poverty that persuade youngsters to involve in crimes.

In conclusion, I would say that parents can only inculcate good values in their children and influence them to a certain extent. While there are other influential factors in an individual’s life such as bad company, society, social media and one’s own personal choices which plays a major role in shaping youth’s mentality. No parents want their children to be criminals and they always show them virtuous path. Hence it would be wrong to say that only good parenting skills can help reduce the crime rates of young offenders. (261 Words)

Essay Writing about using computers and electronic devices to access information.

Academic Writing Task 2
You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.
Write about the following topic:
Write at least 250 words.

More and more people today are using computers and electronic devices to access information.
Therefore there is no need to print books, magazines and newspapers.
To what extent do you agree or disagree?


Sample Answer

Nowadays the whole world is dependent on electronic devices such as computers, laptops and mobile phone. These electronic devices have now become our necessity. Traditional newspapers, magazines and books are getting outdated gradually. I agree with the previously mentioned statement to some extent, which will be discussed in this essay.

Internet and electronic devices are blessing in today’s era. Due to advancement in technology, a huge number of people have electronic gadgets like mobile phones and computers which makes it convenient for them to gather information anytime and anywhere, for this reason, people have switched from traditional newspapers. There is plethora of information available on the internet which is just a click away. Whether it is about what is happening around the world or anything happening locally. Now we do not have to do a detailed reading of books and magazines for any information as the internet has made it faster and easier for us.

Furthermore, electronic media are eco-friendly and economical as it saves a lot of paper and cost of production of books and magazines. In addition to that, the digital information is more engaging and interesting for people as there are audio-visual presentations and target specific content which makes the experience more personalised. All these features can not be found in print media, there we can only find plain text with some pictures and graphs. Print media provides us limited information while the internet is a vast ocean of information, but this extensive information, on the other hand, makes it difficult to detect the correct knowledge.

On the whole, Print media might not be as convenient as digital media but it is still required because they are credible and authentic source of information. Before reaching us, books and newspapers go through several processes such as proofreading and editing which makes them more reliable. Hence they must not be neglected. (309 Words)

Cue Card Describe a time when you told your friend an important truth

Cue Card # Describe a time when you told your friend an important truth

Describe a time when you told your friend an important truth
– Who your friend is?
– What the truth was
– What your friend’s reaction was
– And explain why it was important for you to tell the truth to your friend

Sample Answer

I believe a lie spoken for someone’s benefit is better than truth. So, telling a lie momentarily for someone’s good is not a bad thing in my point of view. To the best of my recollection, today I want to talk about a time when I had to hide a bitter truth from my friend. His name is Mukul, one of my closest friend and I love spending time with him, sharing my happiness and sorrows. Last year, we were appearing for UPSC exam. As he was a very bright student since his childhood, he did all his best to crack this exam, studied 14 hours every day with full concentration and dedication.
Everything was proceeding as planned before the exam. We stayed up late together, working for final revision and solving all the questions that might appear in exams. Then just before the final day of the exam I accidentally picked up his phone while he went outside to get some fresh air.
The call was from his aunty. It was a pickle situation as his father was hospitalized due to heart attack. But somehow, I accumulated
my thoughts and told his aunty about the exams and explained everything. The only thing that came to my mind was that how is
he going to take it, will he be able to write his exams after this or not. Finally, I decided that we should not tell Mukul about this before exam.
When Mukul came back I pretended like nothing has happened and gave our exams to the best of our abilities. Finally, after returning to the hostel I decided to break the news to him. He started crying immediately. We booked his ticket and he left off immediately for his hometown. He did not talk to me for the entire vacation period.
Later, he cracked the exam with a very good rank and then he came to me and said that he was grateful for what I did. We are still good friends as we were before.

Q1. Do you think we should tell truth at all times?
Ans. Honestly speaking, telling truth shows you care for others, but we cannot tell the truth all the time.
Sometimes the truth may hurt the feelings. It does not mean that you should tell lies to others; in fact, you can hide the truth for some time and speak it later for someone’s benefit.

Q2. How do you know when others are telling the truth?
Ans. From my experience, I get to know that someone is telling a lie by their facial expressions. For example, people start sweating or avoiding eye contact when they are lying. However, sweating might also be due to other reasons and therefore it is not easy to determine if people are indeed lying or just physically uncomfortable.

Q3. Do you think it is important to win the game or follow the rules?
Ans. As far as I believe, winning the game without rules is not fair enough. Deserving people will not get the chance to showcase their abilities. So, although
the result is important, following the rules is even more important.

Q4. Sometimes people should tell lies. Do you agree?
Ans. As I mentioned above, lie spoken for someone’s benefit is better than truth. But it does not mean that we should speak lies all the time.
