One striking feature of the chart is that watching TV was the favorite free time activity for both the genders. On average, males spent 3 hours daily in front of their TV sets while women spent 2.6 hours. Socializing and interacting with family and friends was the next most preferred form of recreation. Both men and women spent 0.7 hours per day on this activity.
Leisure activities, sports, exercise and using electronic devices like computers were more popular among males. On the other hand, the opposite was true for reading as females expended 0.4 hours daily on this activity whereas men spent merely 0.3 hours. Interestingly, thinking or relaxing were equally popular among both sexes. This form of entertainment accounted for 0.3 hours daily for both men and women.
Overall, there were minor differences in the amounts of times males and females spent in different leisure and sport activities but watching TV was the activity which occupied the most time. (184 Words.)

The table compares literacy rates for men and women in Europe and different regions of America, Asia and Africa in the year 2106. The world’s average literacy figures for both the genders are also included.

Overall, what stands out from the table is that there were clear regional differences in the number of literate people. Europe and North America observed the highest literacy rates while the figures were considerably lower in both Southern Asia and Sub-Sahara Africa.

Looking at the details, 86% of the world’s population was able to read and write in 2016, but males outnumbered females (90% versus 83%). Regionally, Europe and North America topped the list with 99% literacy for both men and women. Eastern and South-Eastern Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean were at the second and third positions respectively. Their literacy rates were 96% and 94%. Notably, the figures for both men and women were almost the same in these regions.

In the other listed regions, there were significant differences in literacy rates for both the genders. In Sub-Sahara Africa only 57% females were able to read and write, whereas the figure for Western Asian women was 17% higher. Gender disparity was prevalent in Southern Asia as well. (203 Words.)

IELTS CUE CARD #Describe an important decision/ choice that you made in your life.

Describe an important decision/ choice that you made in your life.

You should say:

  • what the decision/choice was
  • when you took this decision
  • What the result of the decision was and whether it was a good choice.

and explain why it was an important decision or choice for you.


Sample Answer :

Making decisions by myself has always been the most difficult part about growing up. I’ve at times preferred introspecting by myself and at very major situations I’ve discussed the issue with my family and friends. One decision that I’ve struggled to make in my life was that about what stream to pursue after my high school. My parents thought that the field of technology was appropriate for me while on the other hand I felt that I could do so much better with arts. I made this decision when I was 19 years of old, just after finishing my 12th grade. My parents never forced their decision upon me instead they always advised me to pursue what my heart wanted. My dad always suggested that I should do what I thought was best for me. Everyone assumed my decision to be immature and stupid and thought that I was a fool.

But after giving time and thought to the decision making and keeping in mind the several issues and perspective I decided to get myself enrolled to a university that offers degree in designing. I’m very happy that I made this decision. I’ve yet a year to finish my graduation but throughout the last 3 years I have enjoyed working on lot of creative projects and I am doing quite well academically.

I must point out that making this choice was not easy and I had to go through a very hard time. I had to fight a lot with my inner self and then convince my parents for the same. There were always lot of potential risks of picking the option I prefer my parents would have complained if I hadn’t made a success out of myself. I still remember the sleepless nights and dubious feelings I had that time. Sometimes I thought of giving up on my passion and yield to my parents’ decision and but I made myself realise that I shouldn’t give up so easily on something that I’m really good at. Since I made my own choice at that time, a strong urge and force worked on me that I have to do really good and I am happy that I took my decision and doing very good so far.

Sample Answer :

I remember myself as a very studious child back in school. One subject that I particularly liked the most was English that was taught in our school. We had this subject in our curriculum  each year from primary school to high school and each year we used to have a new teacher  teach us the subject. Even we had to read lots of English  in university as it is considered the basic of all the other subjects.

I firmly recall all of my favourite teachers who build my love for the language ,I owe them for that. I feel extremely lucky to have had some amazing faculties who shared the same level of interest and love for those long stretches of plays and poetry.

My teachers would often tell us  stories and read us poetry in fine tones  and then calmly explain us what it implies. She would also relate certain similar life experiences to make the point clear and id mention that it helped. Sometimes she used to take us to the auditorium and make us watch some old classic movies like breakfast club, Dial M for murder, etc. My foundation and interest grew more with each passing years and my teachers proved as a great objects for inspirations.

English itself is full of fascination and adventure if one is passionate for it. It is one of such subjects that anyone can possibly fall in love with if s/he starts understanding the underlying ideas and tries to feel it. English is a basic living necessity these days and is used all around us and the things that I learned from my School had helped me greatly throughout my life.
