IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # Subject Taught

Describe a subject taught in your school.
You should say –
– What was it and who taught it?
– How was it taught?
– What did you learn from the class?

Explain how it helped you?

The subject I’d like to describe is English that was taught in our school from the very beginning of our school days. Each year a new teacher used to teach us the subject and I have also done various online courses in English. I remember Ms. Pooja, Ms. Sujata, Mr. swatantra and sister rose Charles were among the few teachers who taught us English in different years.

I think we were lucky enough to have great teachers to teach the subject. As of now, I see people taking English as if they can just do it with a night fight. But in our case the teachers made us so engrossed in the subject that we took it seriously. Questions would pop up from any part of the chapter, vocabulary could be any word of the chapter and we had to be thoroughly prepared for it. So, we were not just limited to the back questions or the ones given by the teacher, instead we had to make short questions from the chapter, memorise all the words in the chapter we did not knew meaning. Of course it was tough, but it was fun, I would say. When a chapter that with a play came, we enacted it.

So, I just did not learned English, I was involved it, so I become a good orator, my fear of stage was gone and I remember making great friends. Although it seemed fun at that time, I think all of our class accepts the way English was taught has helped us in our daily lives.

For me, I think the seed of becoming a writer in English was planted in my school.


IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # Friend

Describe a person who became your friend.
You must say-
Who is the person?
How did you meet?
What made you two become good friends?

Explain how is your friendship now?

I am a sort of a person who does not makes friends, they just become. I mean I won’t be the one taking initiatives or being friendly to others. Owing to this, I have very few friends, but the ones who are my friends remain my friends. It was in the first semester of our college that I met Abhilasha. Although initially we never talked much, it was during the end of the semester that we became friends.

We had to submit presentations of a project that we all worked on, by the end of the semester. We were divided into groups of ten and every one had their co-ordinators. I was pretty much good at making presentations, so I was relaxed and working on something in our lab. It was then, when abhilasha came worried and told the people I was sitting with about her problem. Their group mentor had actually asked them to submit their presentation a day before and she knew nothing about it.

For some reasons, I felt I can help her. So, I took her to my house to make the presentation but my computer was not working so we moved towards her house. We made her presentation and I came back home by 8.
She submitted her presentation and we had the D-day next day. So, I made my presentation that night and we all were good.

I think the fact that I helped her even when my work was incomplete made her my friend or may be our subsequent meetings. But, we have been friends since then and have stood with each other through the thick and thin.
