Sample Answer
Technology has changed our lives to a great extent and has become an inseparable part of our routine. I look around today and see myself surrounded by technology in every direction. One such gift of technology is the mobile phone, with the primary function of calling people and sending text messages, it also serves innumerable other functions.
I still remember my first mobile phone as it was a turning point in my life. I had cleared my twelfth standard examinations and was preparing to go abroad for further studies. My father used to live in another city and wanted me to visit him during my summer break before college. He gifted me my first mobile phone then. It was a Sony Ericson smartphone, with internet and camera facility along with many other advanced features. I was extremely happy and started using it as I would need it for my solo travels and time spent away from home. I was immersed in that small piece of technology and fiddled through it to familiarize myself with its features.
It was very beneficial as I could be in constant touch with my family at all times, and made it possible to share everything including my whereabouts with them. It was an exhilarating experience streaming through videos, listening to music, taking pictures, and playing games. I found it very convenient to talk to my friends and show them new things that I came across. The smartphone had indeed changed my life a lot and that too for the better.

IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card: A time when you helped someone with their work or studies.

IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card:

A time when you helped someone with their work or studies.

  • When was it?
  • Who did you help?
  • How did you help them?
Sample Answer

Helping others and caring for them is a noble gesture and reflects one’s humanity. I have helped many people in my life with various things. I think it to be the best thing that I can do to give back to the world and make it a better place to live.

One such time was when I helped a small child with his studies, specifically his exam preparations. When I was in the tenth standard, our maid brought her son along with her so that she could keep an eye on him while he studied. He was in the fifth standard and was a weak student causing his mother to be worried about him. I called him up to my study table and looked at his books. With her permission, I sat down to guide him through his course material, one subject after the other. After two hours, we both were tired and I asked him to come to me daily from the next day. His mid-term examinations were due in a month and I decided to tutor him for two hours each day till then. I followed a set timetable dedicating time to each subject. I taught him all the important chapters, cleared his doubts, and gave him homework and a lot of questions for his practice.

He slowly and steadily gained confidence and performed well in his exams. All I did was to help him become focused and practice to become adept at learning and answering questions. He thanked me a lot and I was glad that I could help him with his studies.
