IELTS CUE CARD # DESCRIBE AN OLD PERSON YOU MET WHO HAS INSPIRED YOU. Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in dehradun
SAMPLE ANSWER-

In my life, I have met many elderly people. Here I would like to talk about an old lady I came in contact with while volunteering at an old age home in my city. During summer break in my school days, me and my friends decided to offer our services at an old age home as we spent our evenings helping the residents there. It was at this old age home that I came across Mrs. Dsuza whose positive approach towards life really inspired me.

One evening, all the senior citizens were narrating their stories about how they ended up at that place. Mrs. Dsuza also unfolded her story. The fact which impressed me about her the most was the way in which she was praising her son and daughter-in-law even after they left her at such a tender age. After hearing her story, I felt extremely sympathetic to her. 

She had a joyful and generous nature. We learned about the betrayal she has gone through from her own blood but still she didn’t speak a word against him. Her son promised to take her back within a few days but never turned back. Any person would have cursed if their son had done that but this old lady already forgave her son.  

As I have told earlier, this lady was very generous and kind- hearted, she treated me like her own grandchild. As all the residents had access to the kitchen, Mrs. Dsuza used to prepare meal for us. Neglected by her own, she built a family for herself with her unconditional love and care.

IELTS CUE CARD # DESCRIBE AN IMPRESSIVE ADVERTISEMENT YOU REMEMBER WELL. Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in dehradun

SAMPLE ANSWER-

There are several advertisements we come across while watching television or surfing the internet.. I used to either find advertisement monotonous due to which I didn’t paid much attention to them. Lately, while watching videos on YouTube, a Vicks advertisement grabbed my attention. It was a short story about a transgender woman activist and her adopted daughter. 

Vicks is a P&G owned cold and cough brand, which broadcasted a short story on ‘Touch of Care’. The advertisement gave a strong message on adoption and transgender rights. The video commences with a daughter and her transgender mother on their way to the boarding school, recounting all the memories that they’ve cherished together so far. Though her mother wanted her to become a doctor, her daughter reveals her ambition of becoming a lawyer.  

The contents of this short digital film were mainly about a close connection between a daughter and mother even though the society opposed to this pure relationship. Gayatri, the adopted daughter wanted to become a lawyer and fight against the unfair legal treatment to transgender in India. The orphan girl innocently questions the society about why her mother is denied fundamental rights if everyone gets this privilege. This question by a naïve child is an eye-opener for the society we live in.  

 I cannot forget about this particular advertisement mainly because of the stigma shown in it. Even after the Supreme Court passed a law for the transgender, these people continue to face bias and humiliation in the Indian society. In the advertisement which lasted for nearly two minutes, the campaign was successful enough to deliver a powerful moral.

well dressed IELTS Band7

SAMPLE ANSWER 1

It was during my stint at a major IT company few years back that I met a woman who I still remember as one of the well dressed out of all. She was my senior at the office and when everyone else was tensed about silly things she made sure that she carried herself with amazing awe.

She would usually wear Indian formals to the office and her eyes always carried the Kohl which made her so much more approachable. There were although times when she wore Western but she made sure that it was always in accordance to the office environment. Her hair used to be properly done and her shoes were never in a fit of rage with her legs.

I remember on asking her why she enforces everyone to dress well. On that, she answered, that no matter what is going on if you don’t dress well for the situation, you lose it by 50% straight. Later in life, I realized she was right.


SAMPLE ANSWER 2

Out of many that I have met during my professional days, I clearly remember my senior at a company as the most well-dressed person. When I was a System Engineer at the office, he was around ten years senior to me and I would often reach out to him for help on a business perspective.

He had been working on many technologies and although he could not answer every silly question of mine, he made sure that I reach to the answer. He would always wear formals to office, although casuals were allowed. His smile I would say was the most striking thing about his personality.

No matter how many big issues came he dealt with them in the most calm manner  he could do. I recollect asking him why he never wore casuals to office when it is allowed. On that, he answered that when you dress well, you almost win the fight and then all that is required is the work, which you already know.
