IELTS CUE CARD #Describe a website you often browse.

Describe a website you often browse.

You should say:

  • what is it
  • how long have you been using it
  • detailed information about the website

and explain why you often browse this website.

Sample Answer :

My life revolves around my laptop  and I surf lot of websites throughout the day. The website which I visit more often is Sound Cloud. Its my most favourite bookmark.

I am a complete music junkie! I visit the website several times a day to surf the latest music as this is a perfect platform for the releases of new sounds and music. I have been using it for the longest possible time. Almost for the past 5-6 years.

The site is like a whole Pandora box for the music lovers. It contains illustrated tab for the music playing and it shows relevant new music according to your past search and views. For example, I have been able to keep track of this really good artist Juice Worlds by constantly getting notifications and updates of his new music. I think the website is really comprehensive, compact and easy to operate too.

Sound Cloud, for me, is a one-way ticket to heaven. It acts as the best source for party music as well as for times when I like to keep it calm and composed.

The only downside of the website is that you cant really download music from this site and keep it for later use. I think it can be a bit addictive if they allowed it as It would surely take up all the start-up disk space on my laptop. Because it is updated very frequently it is tempting to keep going back and having another look for being the first one to discover a good track. It has often led me to procrastinate when I am supposed to be doing work , I keep telling myself to restrict the amount of time I spend on the site. I haven’t been successful as of yet.

I seriously suggest this website to the insane music lovers and for the ones who already use this site , I bet you’d be an avid a follower as me. (334 words)

Sample Answer:


On the occasion of my 22nd birthday I received a brand new black dress from my mom. It was a perfectly made dress with the finest clothing and fits. The fabric was of matt finish and the colour texture was impressive. I’m so glad on receiving it.

My mother came up to me before the party with a little silver parcel with a red bow. I knew that she had some amazing surprise planned for me. But I had no idea as to what she could possibly get for me. In fact, it was out of my idea that she would bring me a little black dress. She is well aware of the love I have for black clothing’s. My mother is an amazing woman.

She loves to plan surprises for people, I was really impressed with her choice and my mom was equally happy to complete her goal. She bought a matching pair of wedges to go along with the dress. I was so happy that she could cater to all my needs without me asking her to do so.

Of course, it was an extraordinary gift to me. It was from the woman who has always been a source of inspiration to me. She is a very empathetic lady. I admire this quality of her. Besides, it was my birthday gift from her. I tried it on with sheer interest and absolutely loved it. Moreover, the dress was made of the colour I really like. The dress was very admired by all my friends and family. I couldn’t thank her enough for the dress.
