IELTS SPEAKING TASK CUE CARD:
Something you bought but could not use a lot
- What it was ?
- Why couldn’t you use it a lot ?
- What do you want to do with it now?
I am very particular about buying things. I prefer to purchase those items only which I require the most. I can recall one incident here when I bought something out of excitement but later couldn’t use it a lot.
It was my brother’s wedding two years ago. It was the last wedding of my generation. We had all the necessary arrangements done. We had a photographer to capture the moments of the main rituals, however for rest of the events, I decided to shoot myself. Although I am not a professional photographer, I like photography. I spent a huge amount in buying a new DSLR Nikon camera. I used that camera during his pre-wedding ceremonies only and after that I didn’t use it a lot. No such events took place after that where I could show my photography skills. Another reason is that my busy working hours don’t allow me to go for holidays as well where I can capture some moments. I am working in a company where my 24×7 attention is needed. That is why I don’t get enough time to pursue my hobby of photography. I still keep that camera but did not use it a lot.
It’s a pity that I am unable to use it frequently and certainly there is no use of keeping it for a long time. I am planning to gift it to my niece who is also very fond of photography. She wants to pursue a course related to photography after her 12th exam. This camera will be very useful for her. I wish she may continue using it.
