IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card: Describe something you want to buy but can’t afford.
- What is it?
- How much does it cost?
- Why can’t you afford it?
- What is the other way you can acquire it?
Every one of us has some dreams in our lives regarding materialistic things. We always keep on adding something or the other to our wish list. Sometimes we are limited by financial issues and have to wait to acquire them. I have always had different things that have been added to my wish list. One of those things is a solar panel setup for my home, which can power up the lights and heat the water supply.
It is a very good set up that is not only highly cost-effective but also environment-friendly. I went to a nearby shop to inquire about the details about the cost and the setup. I was told that it would cost me one hundred thousand Indian rupees to get the set up installed on the roof of my house.
Actually, I cannot afford this much amount right now as I have spent all my savings to buy a car two months ago. Due to this reason, I would have to wait for some time and save more money to buy the solar panel setup.
However, there is another way that I can choose to acquire it. I can purchase it on a minimal down payment and get a loan that I can pay off in monthly instalments later. But I would most preferably avoid this choice due to the fact that it would become a tiresome responsibility to set apart the instalment amount every month. Not to mention the extra amount that I would have to spend upon the loan interest. Hence, I have decided to wait for some time and purchase it at a later point.
