  • its name
  • how and when you would go there
  • who you would go with
  • and explain why you would like to visit this city

Sample Answer

I love traveling and exploring new places. Today, I’m going to talk about a foreign city I wish to visit. It’s London, the capital of United Kingdom.  Since London is about 7000 km from my hometown, the only viable modes of transport to reach there are water and air. If I were to choose between these two modes, I’d prefer a flight because it’ll take less time as compared to a cruise. From safety and economic points of view as well, I think going by air is definitely the better option.

Talking about the time when I’ll go to London, I haven’t yet decided, maybe in summer this year. I don’t know who I’d take with me but it would probably be some people that are close to me, I feel that visiting a new place is more fun if you’re with your family or friends. I’ll have a word with my parents and friends, whoever wants to come with me is welcome.

Coming to the many reasons why I want to visit London, I guess the main reason would be my fascination with history and art. You see, London is one of the oldest multicultural cities in the world. I’ve read about the changes which transformed this city into a center of history, art, business, and education through many of its conquests of the world. And thus, London is home to world-class museums and art galleries, all having a different and unique story behind them.

Other than that London also happens to have the oldest underground railway system in the world. To visit the most popular tourist attractions of London has been on my bucket list for a long time. These include the London Bridge, National Art Gallery, and the British Museum. I’ve heard that the bakeries in London are some of the best out there. I’d love to see what they have to offer.

IELTS Cue Card Sample Questions # Foreign Visit

Travelling is one experience that fills our souls and makes us realize so much more about ourselves and our surroundings. We as humans have been the barefoot walkers and searchers for as long as anyone can remember. Right from Napolean to Gandhi, it has always been our search for the unknown, the quest to find new lands and to search for new ways of living that have led us to evolve over a period of time. This time we are looking at a cue card that talks about a country a person would like to visit in the near future.

Describe a foreign country you would like to visit. You must say :

  • which country is it?
  • when would you like to visit?
  • what is the reason for visiting the country?

also, explain, how is it different from your homeland?

SAMPLE ANSWER

Visiting a foreign land has always been on my checklist and it was recently when I had the resources to visit a foreign country. Through extensive searching, all thanks to Google, I have decided to visit Ireland in the near future. Ireland is an island in North Atlantic and is near to the United Kingdom. It is believed to be one of the safest countries to visit. Even more, over the years, I have heard so much about the Irish people that visiting the country and meeting its people is definitely something to look forward to.

What excites me the most is that Ireland has the smallest of the Aran Islands, Inisheer, which is, home to a population of just 250. It also has a state named Dublin which has as the Guinness Storehouse and Book of Kells.When I chose Ireland as my first place for international travel, I was fascinated by the people and the culture of the country. It was the first country to have found the potato and being a potato lover added up.

Ireland and India, are different in terms of culture, the people but we do share the same historic bond. Rebellions in Ireland in the past have motivated people in my country to fight for freedom as well. I hope I am able to plan better and enjoy a harmonious stay in Ireland.

SAMPLE ANSWER 2

Travelling to a new country is altogether a new experience. It teaches so much that one can never compare it to the side traveling that most people today. I have never been to a foreign country but would like to visit Britain or the United Kingdom sometime in future. Great Britain has ruled our country for over 200 years and I have always known the side of us. But, it really interests me in knowing the other side of the coin.

What history exactly Britain holds and how is our country portrayed now in Britain. I would like to visit the Buckingham Palace and the very famous London Eye. Also, there is the Oxford University which I would love to visit. Over a period of time, there are many English movies that I have seen with the background of United Kingdom and I would love to see the countryside of UK.

There are so many more sites I would love to visit the Roman Baths and maybe take a stroll in the Warner Bros Studio. Britain has been a country with a vast difference from India. From the colonial times till date, there are many cultural differences there and I have known the impact of Britishers in India. This time I would love to see how Indians had an impact on the culture of England.

IELTS Speaking Part I Sample Questions # Walk

Walking is one of the best ways to stay fit, especially for those who don’t find time for exercising. However, for some people, it is a part of their daily routine while others do it only if they have a spare time for it. Jogging and brisk walking are popularly followed by people interested in fitness. Moreover, walking is also one of the best stress busters as it helps in reducing anxiety and fatigue as well. This time we are looking at some of the questions related to walking that can be asked in IELTS Speaking.

Question 1: Do you like to walk?
Answer:  I like taking long walks with my friends and sometimes alone as well. Apart from the many health benefits that it has, walking helps me to relax and spend quality time with my people. Also, it saves fuel expenses.

Question 2: Do you like to walk on your own or with others?
Answer: I usually prefer walking alone as it allows me to manage my own pace. I find it as an excellent way of keeping my body fit and also reducing the mental stress. However, I do go for walks with my family members or friends sometimes, especially to spend quality time with them.

Question 3: Would you say that your city is a good place for walking?
Answer A: Yes certainly, my city has many well-maintained parks, public lawns and pedestrian paths which make it ideal for walking.

Answer B: Not really. I live in a metropolitan city so there are very few places to walk. Nearby parks are the most popular places for walking, exercising or practising yoga/meditation.

Question 3: Do people in your country walk a lot?
Answer: Well, people residing in cities really don’t walk too much as they usually travel long distances in routine. However, the ones living in countryside walk a lot within their vicinity. The city residents consider walking as a fitness medium and prefer early morning walks.

Question 4: Do you think walking is important?
Answer: Yes, I think walking is the best and the simplest way to stay fit in today’s busy life. People hardly have time to exercise and on top of that most of the jobs are limited to the desk. Hence regular walking is indeed very important.

Question 5: Do you think walking in the countryside is better than walking in the city?
Answer: Yes, walking in the countryside is definitely better than walking in the city. The greenery and fresh air that you can enjoy in the countryside is scarce in the crowded cities. Plus, rural areas are more peaceful and pollution-free which makes them perfect for long walks.

Question 6: What could be done to improve the experience of walking in cities?
Answer: Actually a lot can be done to improve the walking experience in the cities like planting more trees, constructing parks and separate lanes for walkers all across. Moreover, there could be special walking zones with no vehicles allowed during some hours of the day.
