IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card:

Describe a song that has a special meaning to you.

  • Which song is it?
  • Who is the singer of this song?
  • When did you first hear it?
  • Why does this song have a special meaning to you?
Sample Answer

Music is one of the best things that have happened in this world. Its essence can be seen by the way it touches people’s hearts and invokes various emotions within. I am very fond of listening to music. I only listen to instrumental tracks when I work or study as they help me concentrate, but while lying idle or driving, I listen to a wide array of songs from different genres.

These can range from Rock to Jazz, depending on my feelings and whereabouts. A song that has a very special meaning to me is “Under Your Scars” by a band named Godsmack. I heard it first while looking for an older song from the band last year. The genre is Rock, and is sung and composed by the band’s lead singer, Sully Erna. The song is the most popular out of the album “When Legends Rise”. Sully Erna is an internationally renowned artist who is immensely popular in the Rock genre. His band is a commercially low profile band and I am a huge fan of it and the music.

The song is a rock ballad that invokes very strong emotions in my heart. It is about a person calling out his love and talking about their feelings and remembering the times when they were together. He urged his love on questions about things not going as planned. The lyrics are far more beautiful than how I show them, and I am in love with this song. I respect the singer from my heart and have been listening to this song every now and then ever since.

IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card: A friend from childhood you remember very well.

IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card:

A friend from childhood you remember very well.

  • When and how did you first meet this friend?
  • What did you like to do together?
  • What did you have in common?
Sample Answer

Friendship is a beautiful relation that touches everyone’s lives in a different way. I too have had many amazing people as my friends, especially during my childhood. I can recall many such friends who were very close to me, but the closest one was Smith.

He was my best friend for a better part of my childhood. I met him when I was 6 years old. He lived in the neighborhood just two houses away from ours. I met him on the first day in the society garden. I was roaming about aimlessly when he appeared and asked me if I live here. We started talking and discovered a lot of common things to talk about. Soon became the best buddies for almost 7 years until his family moved to another state. We had a lot of matching thoughts and hobbies. We both liked playing video games, collecting comic books, watching cartoons, reading stories, amongst other activities. We used to go to school and many other outings together. We also played and studied together at both our homes.

Our goals in the future were also the same as we both wanted to become teachers when we grew up. We even had a similar taste in food and dressing ideas. This friendship was important to me to such an extent that I considered him as my sibling more than a friend. He was the only neighboring kid who I spent the maximum amount of my time with. The best part is all the memories that we created together and the fact that I still cherish them in my heart.
