IELTS-CUE-CARD-#SEARCHED-FOR-SOME-INFORMATION-ON-THE-INTERNET, IELTSBAND7 DEHRADUN

Sample Answer

I am an avid user of the internet. I use it almost on a daily basis. I wouldn’t lie I am quite reliant on the internet. I recently came across the Indian railway website and a special feature of the site is that it allows visitors to check the live status of the train. I was quite awestruck as I wasn’t even aware of this service launched by the Indian railways. It is a very useful website and it came in quite handy during those troublesome times when my mother came to visit me and I didn’t have any information about her coming to visit me.
At first I looked on the website of the Indian railways and a pop up came up asking me to install the app on my phone. I promptly installed the application on my Iphone and proceeded to look for the information. At first it wasn’t quite clear where to look but the help section in the app proved to be quite useful. It guided me step by step and gave me live updates of the train. The information was quite clear and what astonished me the most was that you can make bookings through the app as well.
Well my mother isn’t a frequent traveller and more often than not she is accompanied by someone or the other on her travels. Out of the blue she decided to come and visit me and I was informed about her plans quite late. Her train was meant to arrive at Delhi railway station by 10:30 pm and by the time I got there I was already late by 15 minutes. To my surprise, no information about the train was available and nobody was present in the enquiry booth. I started looking online and came to know that the train was late by 1 hour.
Firstly, I was greatly relieved that I hadn’t missed her and that she is still on board. I came to know of the arrival time and live status of the train through the app. It also gave information about the platform on which the train was meant to arrive and I made my way to the platform instantly. After waiting for almost an hour the train arrived and I picked her up.

IELTS Cue Card # Talk about a beautiful city

Talk about a beautiful city
• Where it is
• How you came to know about it
• When are you planning to go there
• What you will do there

IELTS-CUE-CARD-#-TALK-ABOUT-A-BEAUTIFUL-CITY,-IELTSBAND7-DEHRADUN

Sample Answer

There are many beautiful cities across the world. I am quite fascinated by a few European cities but the one I find most interesting is Amsterdam. It is the capital city of Netherlands and is a remarkable feat of planning and development. For a metropolitan city, it has quite laid back feel to it. The city has managed to gel in the modern world aptly while preserving its culture and heritage at the same time.
I am a well informed person when it comes to cities and my geography is pretty good too. Even though I have known about Amsterdam for a long time it’s only recently that my friend came back from there and he gave me a lot of information in detail about the city. At first, I wasn’t impressed and thought it to be like any other city but after seeing pictures on his phone, I realised that I was mistaken and promptly started searching for the city.
Well right now, I am a bit occupied with other work and studies. I’ll be free in the coming summer so that’s when I am planning to visit Amsterdam. It’ll be once in a life kind of experience and shortage of funds is something that should not bother me while, I am on the trip. I am working overtime right now and saving every last penny for the trip. As of now there are two of us planning to go and currently in conversation with a few more friends as the more the merrier. We might even go to France from there but let’s see how it goes.
It is a beautiful place and it has great infrastructure. The city is full of canals and coffee shops. What fascinates me the most is the preferred mode of transport of the locals. More than half the population uses bicycle as a mode of transport and I’ll be doing the same too. The national history museum is quite famous too and it houses some of the most lucrative pieces of artefacts mankind has ever witnessed. Since I am quite fond of clubbing and Amsterdam is the EDM (electronic dance music) capital of the world I’d try and visit as many as I can on my trip. (375 Words)

IELTS Letter complaint #Faulty Phone

IELTS Letter #Phone faulty phone complaint

You recently bought a high-end Smartphone from a renowned manufacturer. The phone you received is faulty. Write a letter of complaint to the company head describing what the problem is, the action you took and what you would like them to do about it.

IELTS LETTER COMPLAINT #FAULTY PHONE, IELTSBAND7 , DEHRADUN

Sample Answer

Dear Sir/Madam,
I am writing this letter in regards to a Smartphone that I bought from your retail outlet based in west Delhi.
The purchase was made on 13/09/2018 and I was given a bill and warranty card along with the phone. The very next day the screen went blurry and the phone switched off completely. As I spent a huge amount of money on this phone I did not feel like taking any risks and took it back to the store immediately. The technician was not present at that time and I was asked to drop the phone and follow up later.
The reference number for my complaint is B57921 and rather than being informed about the phone, I had to visit the store myself after 5 days to find what’s wrong with it. The services I was offered were quite poor and the technician present there was not able to give a clear explanation about the phone’s faults. They managed to temporarily fix and it broke again the following day. I am not very sure if I want the same phone again. For a company of your size, the services are quite poor and the quality of the handset is not up to the mark.
Can you please issue me a refund for the full amount as I am very disappointed with the services provided by your company.
Yours sincerely,
Pooja Panday

IELTS ESSAY # Health and fitness is decreasing

IELTS Essay # Health and fitness is decreasing

You should spend about 40 minutes on this task. Write at least 250 words. Write on the following topic:

In some countries the average weight of people is increasing and their level of health and fitness is decreasing. What do you think are the causes of these problems and what measures could be taken to solve them?

IELTS-ESSAY-#-HEALTH-AND-FITNESS-IS-DECREASING,-IELTSBAND7,-DEHRADUN

Sample Answer

All countries across the globe are witnessing a substantial increase in the weight of their citizens. Declining health and fitness levels are becoming a matter of concern. In this essay, I will discuss the reasons behind this problem and discuss a few measures that can be taken to address this issue.
In earlier days, people used to carry out their daily tasks themselves therefore, had better fitness levels. The current generation, on the other hand, follows an inactive and sedentary lifestyle. In my view, this change in the lifestyle is the major cause of the problem. In addition, people these days prefer to use different forms of transportation, rather than walking as it is more convenient and is less time consuming.
Furthermore, physical activities such as running, cycling etc have become less common and more of a hobby. Another major reason is the change in the eating habits. Today’s generation prefers to have unhealthy and fatty fast food over a proper nutritious meal. The rapid rise in the popularity of fast food joints such as Mc Donalds, KFC, Burger king etc is a telling example of how people ignore their health and well being just to satisfy their taste buds.
To recommend a few ways, the government should advertise the harmful effects of junk food and impose heavy taxes on the sale of fast food. Bicycle stands and separate cycle lanes should be constructed in different parts of every city across the globe to promote cycling. The governing bodies and local councils should encourage people to use bicycles as it is less harmful and it has health benefits too .Research has shown that such initiatives are very successful. Amsterdam is an ideal example of such a city that has integrated cycling as a major mode of transport for its inhabitants. Due to these measures less than 10 percent of its population is obese.
To sum up, the sedentary and inactive lifestyle of today’s youth and poor diet are the major reasons as to why, people are not as fit as they used to be. The need of the hour is to run advertisements about fitness and make people aware about the ill effects of obesity. (365 Words)
