IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card:
A person you know who likes to talk a lot.
- Who is he/she?
- What does he/she talk about?
- How do you feel about them?
There are a lot of people that we know or meet in our daily lives. Each and every one of us has different personalities and perceptions about life. While some people are introvert and do not like to indulge in conversation, some are extroverts who like to make their thoughts known through speaking them out.
I have met all such kinds of people, yet one of them stands out in my memory. A friend of mine, Paul, is a person who is very loquacious and has a dynamic personality to match this character trait as well. He is a trainer by profession and is quite elder to me. We are fast friends since my school days, and I like his company a lot. He was a public speaker in the school and practiced his communication skills by taking part in debate competitions. I have a habit of spending hours on end with him, listening to whatever he has to say. This is because he observes small details and has garnered a lot of experience since childhood that has taught him a lot. He likes to share such incidences and his thoughts on them with me, as I am a patient listener. I have learned a lot from whatever he has to say, and whenever I am in any doubt, I go to him and ask for advice.
Moreover, he shares his ideas and other thoughts with me as well, and I get to understand and build perspectives about a lot of new things. I really admire him due to this habit of his and believe that my time spent with him is quality time, as I get to learn a lot from him.
