IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # Person in News

We are living in a globalised world which has advanced in technology to an extent that messages are passed in seconds and people can see themselves when talking over miles. With media becoming so much popular, people are so much more aware of what is going in the world. This time we are looking at a cue card that talks about a person in news.

Describe someone in the news you would like to meet.

You should say:

  • who the person is
  • what they do
  • why they are in the news

And explain why you would like to meet them

SAMPLE ANSWER 1

In recent it has been Kapil Sharma, one of the best comedians of our country who has been in news for all the notorious reasons. Kapil started off with winning The Great Indian Laughter Challenge and then went on to win six seasons of Comedy Circus. After that he started off with the show, “Comedy Nights with Kapil which became of the most viewed shows of the time.

However, recently he has been in news for having a fight with a great team member and the backbone of his show Sunil Grover. Sunil used to play a character in his show making him the most loved. But, with this fight, he has decided to leave the show.

I want to meet him and know what exactly is it going on his head right now. People are accusing him of being selfish and mean and having lost his empathetic side. I want to know what does it feel like to be one of the most loved comedians to be someone who people are talking wrong about.


SAMPLE ANSWER 2

There are so many people in news but I think the one person I would love to meet would be Narendra Modi. Narendra Modi is our current prime minister and has been one of the most successful prime minister in recent decades. He, after a very long time, was able to get majority and for the first time in recent times, we see the entire nation following a man.

So, when Narendra Modi says that he will eradicate black money, people do believe in him and are ready to stand in queues for him. He has too an extent brought the waves of digitalization in our country. So, you could see even the small vendors having the paytm sign outside their shops.

I really want to meet him because I am awed by his personality. The way he gives speeches. I would like to know his point of view on the decisions he make and how does he takes the call. Also, how does he talk in a one to one conversation and what is his view point for the youngsters of the country.
