IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # Teacher Who Influenced You

Describe a teacher who influenced you in your education.
You should say :
– Where you met him/her?
– What subjects she/he taught you?
– What was special about him or her?

Explain why this person influenced you so much.

Teachers play a very important role in moulding the lives of a child. I consider myself lucky to get several good teachers throughout my academic years. One of the teachers was, Mr. Swatantra Gupta. He was our English and social science teacher in class VII and taught us English in subsequent classes. He was a really good mentor and guided all of us in the right direction.

Initially we thought that he does not know how to teach but later on I realised that not only was his way of teaching unique, it was also effective. In the social science class, he used to make everyone stand up and speak out the lesson. We thought, may be he is lazy enough not to speak for himself, but after few months we realised that it was because of him that our pronunciation and style of speaking had improved.

He used to particularly make me stand up and ask me to read the entire lesson. It was tiring but at the same time, very exciting. He even pushed to take part in different competitions and plays and suggested my name to the principal for the district debate competition.

I think it was his faith in me that I actually started working on my strengths and become more confident.

IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # Friend

Describe a friend you like to spend time with –
You should say –
– When and how you met?
– How often you see this friend?
– What kind of personality it is?

Why you like to spend time with this particular friend?

The friend I like to spend time with is Vipula. We met six years back, when we were in our senior school. She was a biology major and I was doing my majors in math. But we did had our other classes, i.e. English, physics, chemistry together. We met, by accident, I would say. We had common routes and we shared the same school bus.

In the beginning I didn’t liked her much and our friendship had a quite weird beginning. I remember I lost my parker pen and it was very dear to me and I saw the same pen with her and I though she has stolen my pen. I just went to her seat, took the pen and then told people that she stole my pen. I remember everyone started disliking her, talking less to her. But, some days later I realised that it was actually her pen only and my pen was with my brother. I returned her pen and then told everyone the story and apologised from her.

I think things started becoming normal and people started talking with her and we started chatting because we had the same bus route. Within a month we were good friends and we stopped interacting much with others.
We have been friends since then and she is doing her MBBS now. Because of our busy schedule we don’t often see each other, but we take our time and meet every month.

She is a fantastic person I would say. The best thing that I like about her, is that no matter what problem the world throws at her, she is able to handle them with a smiling face. Rarely, would you find her cribbing about her problems. The reason I spend so much time with her is that she makes life beautiful and without any problems.
