  • what development is it?
  • where is it located?
  • What are its features and benefits?
  • How often do you visit it?
Sample Answer

I live in Dehradun, the capital of Uttarakhand state. It is a prominent city in the region and is the home to many markets, complexes, and offices amongst other buildings. The most recent development in the city is the Promenade shopping complex which is the largest shopping mall in the city. It is located in the center of the city near the clock tower.

A huge and marvelous building with an all-glass front, it is splendid to look at. It is a five storey building with two extra floors dedicated to the parking space in the basement. It has many large showrooms occupied by different brands. Each floor has small shops, confectionaries and food vendors in the central area and a dedicated food court on the top floor. The place has a vibrant mix of colors with the ambient background lighting and other subtle décor materials.

It is a great place for an outing and offers a comfortable and eventful visiting experience. Besides the shops and showrooms the complex houses a cinema hall, a children’s playing area, and other modern amenities blended into the building. The staff is very nice and helpful, and the brands have all the latest products available. I have been to it many times with family and friends, and have enjoyed my visits thoroughly. I visit this complex mostly on the weekends for watching movies, shopping or having lunch in any cafe over there.

IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card: Describe an interesting place in your country that is not visited by many tourists.

IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card:

Describe an interesting place in your country that is not visited by many tourists.

  • Where is this place?
  • What do you like about it?
  • How do you go there?
Sample Answer

India is a multicultural country with diverse geographical attractions. It is not possible for the visitors to visit all the tourist destinations here in a limited amount of time. This leads to a few places being visited less often as compared to others. Uttarakhand is home to a few such sites that are difficult to reach as they are nestled deep into the Himalayan mountain ranges.

One such place is Deoria Taal, a lake situated on a hilltop near a village called Saari. Located at a distance of 250 kilometers from the state capital Dehradun, it is a quaint lakeside place that has become a tourist spot due to its beautiful surroundings and breathtaking views. One can clearly see two of the tallest peaks in the Himalayan range from the view point near the lake. The diversity of the flowers and the trees, coupled with the serenity of the water body provide a soothing and calm environment to the visitors, making it an ideal spot for a weekend visit.

It can be reached after a hectic and tiring three-kilometer trek to the top of the hill, rendering it inaccessible for many visitors. The nearby area is surrounded by dense forests on high peaks and is scarcely uninhabited. There is a lot of wildlife that comes to the lake to drink water, making it difficult to reach the shores. The lake is a freshwater lake with a grassy area next to it making it perfect for camping in the lap of nature. It is easier to access in summers than winters, and a few select tourists come to camp here during their vacations.

IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card: Describe a photo that you remember well.

IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card:

Describe a photo that you remember well.

  • Which photo is it?
  • Why do you remember it?
  • Why is it special?
Sample Answer

Photos are the best way to capture important moments in our lives. I have garnered a collection of many interesting photographs over the course of my life. These have been clicked in different places with different people, and mean a lot to me. The most special photograph in my collection is a picture of my family.

I distinctly remember the time it was taken. I live in a nuclear family and it is very rare to have a family get together as my father’s siblings and parents live far away in other cities. It was taken in May 2008 when my family had gathered for my cousin sister’s marriage. We all had come to Delhi at my grandfather’s place for the wedding and had a very good time. We were getting late for the reception ceremony on the last day, and after the morning chaos had died down and the family elders had fussed about small issues, we were ready to leave. My grandfather’s neighbor was a very cheerful person and jovially offered everyone to gather around for a family photograph. We all complied and the picture was successfully clicked after everyone settled down.

It is very special to me as it was the last photograph of my complete family. A few months after the wedding, my grandfather passed away, and my cousin brother left for his further studies abroad. Hence, May 2008 was the last time that we witnessed the complete family happy in togetherness, making the photograph a witness to that beautiful memory.
