IELTS CUE CARD #BOOKS

Give your opinions on books. 

You should say:

  • What type of books do you enjoy
  • What is your favourite book
  • Why is it your favourite book

and explain how you feel about your favourite book.

 

Sample Answer:

I am a great lover of books, movies, novels, plays and poems alike. Thus, it is no wonder that I absolutely adore any and all forms of fiction. In fact, my favourite past time is joining various authors on their beautifully illustrated ventures or travels.

Some of my childhood favourites are Enid Blyton, Ruskin Bond, Rick Riordan, Suzanne Collins and of course, J.K.Rowling.

Likewise, my favourite book is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The reasoning behind my choice is that this book, in particular, stood out to me. It stands at a point where childhood innocence starts to develop into something a bit darker. The transition is beautiful to witness. Most if not all of the most prominent characters have been introduced, and none, have thus far died. 

This seemingly innocuous and largely unassuming story teaches all who flick through its pages, that adults are hypocrites, the authorities don’t always deserve the power they wield so freely, and hope isn’t as elusive as it appears.

But far more importantly, this book series really has the best world-building I have ever seen for any fictitious universe. The Magical Governments of different countries are introduced, how they function and clash. Fantastic creatures, mythical beasts come to life, working in tandem to test the skills of the champions. It truly is a magical journey to witness, one that I would recommend everyone partakes in.

I have read many a novel before and after, but I feel, none can come close to the vibrant imagination of J.K.Rowling. I concede that she might not have the best writing style out there, but her originality rings true.

IELTS CUE CARD #THE WEATHER

IELTS CUE CARD #THE WEATHER

Describe the weather. 

You should say:

  • what the weather currently looks like
  • how the weather changes over time
  • how the weather impacts your daily life

and explain how the weather makes you feel at different times.

 

Sample Answer:

Right now we are in the Autumn season of fading October. The weather seems to be rather chilly, foggy, murky or grey if you will. In particular, the clouds have been obscuring the sun for the past week or so. Although thus far it has not yet rained properly, only slight drizzles have occurred that last for a quarter-hour at the maximum. Meaning that currently, I have to wear light woollens if I don’t want to freeze or feel numb.

Speaking of which, whenever I go out for walks I have noticed that in the mornings there is a cold stiff breeze and heavy fog. On the other hand, in the afternoons the clouds seem to give a bit of leeway, letting some feeble sunlight through to warm the frost off.

The days are overcasting and dark, which can sometimes affect my mood negatively. Soon however it will get even colder and glummer. Personly I don’t really look forward to winter seasons as the weather always becomes turbulent and unpredictable. During such weather I tend to feel lazy and unproductive, wanting to remain inside and inactive.

Rather I much prefer the fresh breeze of the spring, the warmth and welcoming atmosphere of summer. Similarly, there is no problem of humidity or unannounced rainstorms in these seasons. I always feel far more productive in the springtime, I seem to get a whole year worth of work done in a day! It appears my mood lifts as the sun comes and the breeze goes. Although I don’t seem to be affected much with the change in humidity levels since I learned to adapt my skincare routine long ago.

Overall, the weather is a very important governing factor on my mood and in my life.

Directors And Managers # Essay For IELTS

Directors and managers of organizations are often older people. Some people say that it is better for younger people to be leaders.
To what extent do you agree/disagree?
Write at least 250 words.


SAMPLE ANSWER

A generation ago, the big organizations of the countries were run by old people, the ones regarded as the experienced. However, with coming times, new ventures are getting established by younger people. With this, there are two opinions formed, some believe that an organization is better to run by older people because of their experience, however, others believe that younger people bring with them dynamism that is required for taking the organization to higher levels. I believe, what matters is the passion and the vision to take the company to newer heights.

Young people running a company bring with them great benefits. Firstly, they are more up-to-date and in touch with the modern world. This brings an added advantage to the organization in terms that they replace the more redundant work with the new better technologies. Secondly, they are often more dynamic and forward-thinking which makes them open to new ideas. Thirdly, leadership demands strength, both mentally and physically. Young leaders are often more fitter than their older counter parts making them a better choice for the role of a leader.

However, older generation has their own advantages. Firstly, with age comes experience which is very critical for the job of a leader. Even more, older people have more authority which is needed to manage and lead people. Secondly, the job of a leader is that of responsibility and this sense of responsibility is more often found in the older counterparts.

Overall, age is just a number. A leader is a person who has a vision and can lead a team. Both young and old people bring with them their benefits to the organization, however,in the end it is the passion to work that makes the company successful.
