IELTS Cue Card Sample Answers # Special Day

We all have special moments in our lives and they often require us to work hard. Sometimes they are a bit expensive but there are some days, not even moments, which take our breath away. Like they say, the best things in life cannot be bought with money. So, are these special days in our lives, they are inexpensive monetarily and the most expensive emotionally, because they are the days that we cherish for our lives. This time we are talking about a cue card which asks you to tell about a special day in your life, where you did not spend much money.

Talk about a special day which was inexpensive. You should say –

  • what was the occasion?
  • where did you go?
  • who were you with?

also, explain, what made that day special?

SAMPLE ANSWER

Special days have great importance in all our lives, they make the boring and the dull and gloomy days pass by, all because of the hope for a special day. In the past few years, I have had many occasions where I felt my breath was taken away. The gratitude I felt for God and the people around me was immense. One such day was when I went to Shravenbelagola for a Jain festival.

The Jain festival happens once in 12 years and in it their God, Bahubali is showered with milk, water, and many other things. Lacs of people from across the country and worldwide come to pay tribute to the God. There are many media people from all over and it gets attended by politicians of my country.

I visited Shravenbelagola, which is 3 hours from Bengaluru, all alone. It had to be my first solo trip. Being in a completely new place, I initially was really scared, not knowing exactly where I would go or where would I stay. On the D-Day, however, I made friends, got to attend the event right from the top because of the passes they had, and free food, because it was a government event.

Coming back from the event, I saw people rushing and throwing each other to get to the top and I felt so special. It was that day I realized the importance of people in our lives. They make good things better and bad things good. Had I not made those friends, my trip may have been a failure.

SAMPLE ANSWER

Birthdays have been really special for me, they told me the number of people who loved me. But, for me, the best gifts have been the ones that were without any reasons. One such gift that I got as a child was that of a diary and a pen. It was gifted to me by my brother on Rakhi. It was a nice diary, the one with colorful pages and the pen had an elite favor.

I remember, a note on a page it was written, for your love of writing, I wish you write more and write well. I have writing diaries since then and improving my skill. It has been around a decade since I first started writing and sometimes when I look back upon those writings it really makes me feel good. Good for the journey that I have traversed in all these years.

That first diary, I remember writing all the new stories that I had in my mind for myself. Sitting across my window, it was beautiful. I still have that diary with me. The reason, it is very special for me is because it just showed a new aspect of me as an individual. I could write, that is beautiful for me.
