IELTS Cue Card 2024: Describe an advertisement that you don’t like.

Describe an advertisement that you don’t like.

You should say:

  • When did you see it ?
  • What is it about ?
  • Where you saw it/ how you came to know about it ?
  • Why you didn’t like it ?

Sample Answer
Well, I generally don’t like to watch many advertisements because I believe they are simply a waste of time & in turn lure people to buy unnecessary items. Although some ads are quite informative and genuine, but at the same time most of them just provide fake scenarios. Today, I would like to talk about one such advertisement which I really dislike whenever it is on air. It is an advertisement about Pan masala. It is endorsed by the top most celebrities of our country. They present that deadly tobacco packets in such a way that it lures the youngsters of the nation to try it. The people of our country are very much into imitating the doings of some famous celebrities, and when these deadly cancer causing products are showcased by them, it is hard for people to resist. The pan masala is said to be saffron-infused and designed under the theme of “Daane-Daane Mein Kesar Ka Dam”. Although the precautions clearly state that it contains tobacco and it may cause cancer. I believe these big shots should not promote such deadly products which affects the health of the people. It contains portions of tobacco, hence it is highly recommended to place it within reach of children. After having several warnings the product is still endorsed as a fit to consume item. I feel disheartening because such a dangerous product is endorsed by the idols of our country and this fascinated the teenagers, which in turn affect their overall health. Nowadays, this ad can be seen on most of the social networking sites like YouTube and Instagram. I wish there was a method that allowed us to ban several ads if they use false means to sell the product.

IELTS Cue Card 2024: Describe a time when you were late.

Describe a time when you were late.

You should say:

  • When it was ?
  • Why you were late ?
  • How you felt about being late ?

Sample Answer
I am a very conscientious person and try to arrive on time everywhere. I acquired this habit from my father, who is a very disciplined and punctual person. He always told me that punctuality reflects dependability to others. Whenever I have some appointments or deadlines I make sure to take extra precautions and aim to arrive at least 10 minutes before the scheduled time. However, there have been some instances where I have still been late even after that extra time buffer. For instance, I recall being late for one of my B.ed exams. It was back in the year 2018 when I was appearing for my B.ed exams. My examination center happen to be in the outskirts of Yamunanagar a district in the state of Haryana. It was around 30 kilometers away from my hometown . So I got ready at the crack of dawn to leave at around 7am in order to reach on time. My dad accompanied me and we reached the station by 7:30. On arrival we came to know that all the trains to Haryana were running late. So, we decided to catch a bus as the bus stop was nearby. Somehow we managed to get into a crowded bus. We had reached halfway when the main problem occurred. There was a massive traffic jam on our way because, the previous night two trucks, filled with wood logs had collided and the roads were all covered with those logs of wood. It was already 10am and we were stressed. People starting getting out of the bus and we too went out. We tried hard to get an auto to reach the examination center but it was of no use. The examination center was still at a distance of 10 kilometers. Time was passing by but we were not able to get any conveyance to reach the center. It was 10:50 and I started to panic, at that very instance, an old man was passing by, on a bike and on seeing us he stopped at once, and offered help. We sat on his bike and somehow managed to reach the center by 11:15. Though I was late for my examination but the center superintendent allowed me to appear for my exam after hearing my side of the story. To cap it all, I would say it was an unforgettable experience for me. And I felt terrible for being late for my examination.

I am very fond of watching movies and web series. And, I admire the actors who bring their roles to life. Here, I would like to talk about an actor who I personally admired the most, Sushant Singh Rajput, who has truly impressed me with his acting skills & moreover his humble nature was to die for. Although, he’s not alive now but I still admire his work. In all the roles he has played, it seems like he has become the actual character, living his role to the fullest. I saw his immaculate work in the movie Kai Po Che where he played a lead role showcasing the struggles of a common man affected by 2001 Gujrat earthquake. Another movie in which he played an outstanding role was PK. He even played a lead in a romantic comedy movie Shudh Desi romance. Dhoni biopic, Raabta and Kedarnath proved to be the biggest hits of Sushant Singh in the bollywood movie industry. He gained much fame and recognition after these movies. Sushant Singh Rajput was a talented and promising Indian actor. He comes from a humble background and has faced many struggles in his journey. Most of his movies have been huge suceccess. His death was a heartbreaking incident to the nation but still he is present in our hearts through his spectacular work. Now, whenever I watch any old movies in which he has even a small role, I watch it till the end because of his captivating performance.

IELTS Cue Card 2024: DESCRIBE A TIME WHEN YOU FACED A CHALLENGE.

Describe a time when you faced a challenge.

You should say:

  • When was it?
  • How did you overcome that hardship?
  • What did you learn from it?
  • How did you feel after that?

Sample Answer
People often face challenges in their lives. Some of them are handled well on the other hand, some issues are hard to swallow. We often tend to give up in such situations. I was in trouble when me and friends went for a trek to a place near Mussurie. It is called Nag-Tibba, and it is famous for the mesmerizing view of the upper Himalayas you get from there. We were a group of youngsters in our early 20s. We started our trek with fervor and were enjoying our hike.
The view of the sunset was enticing, but we realized we were in trouble as we were far away from our destination and it was about to get dark. This was just the tip of the iceberg, as we also forgot to carry a torch with us. Moving around in darkness was risky, and the only option we had was to camp for the night at the same spot.
We built a fire, fixed our camps, and decided that everyone would rotateally wake up for a few hours to avoid any possible danger from wild animals. Finally, the night was over, and we resumed our expedition.
There was a lot to learn from this difficulty we encountered. First, we should always be well prepared while doing something that is not part of our daily routine and never lose our vision in excitement.
I felt very lucky that nothing unfortunate happened with us, and I revamped my belief in my decision-making.

Part 3 Follow-Up Questions

Q.1 Do people like to face challenges?

I think most people avoid stressful situations. Humans love being in their comfort zone and try to stay away from a tight-spot.
Q.2 How do you support others who are facing challenges?
When people from my family and friends are in a sticky situation, the first thing I do is to hear them out properly. If it’s something in my area of expertise , I advise them. If it’s something I am unfamiliar with, I seek advice from people who are related to that area.
Q.3 What are some challenges that people in your hometown face?
My hometown is the capital of our state. The primary issue people face here is the traffic problem during rush hours. Secondly, the number of street dogs has increased significantly over the past few years, which has created safety issues. Poorly managed waste systems contribute to the clogging of drains, and strayed animals often consume polythene along with food they find in the garbage.
