IELTS Cue Card Sample Questions # Foreign Visit

Travelling is one experience that fills our souls and makes us realize so much more about ourselves and our surroundings. We as humans have been the barefoot walkers and searchers for as long as anyone can remember. Right from Napolean to Gandhi, it has always been our search for the unknown, the quest to find new lands and to search for new ways of living that have led us to evolve over a period of time. This time we are looking at a cue card that talks about a country a person would like to visit in the near future.

Describe a foreign country you would like to visit. You must say :

  • which country is it?
  • when would you like to visit?
  • what is the reason for visiting the country?

also, explain, how is it different from your homeland?

SAMPLE ANSWER

Visiting a foreign land has always been on my checklist and it was recently when I had the resources to visit a foreign country. Through extensive searching, all thanks to Google, I have decided to visit Ireland in the near future. Ireland is an island in North Atlantic and is near to the United Kingdom. It is believed to be one of the safest countries to visit. Even more, over the years, I have heard so much about the Irish people that visiting the country and meeting its people is definitely something to look forward to.

What excites me the most is that Ireland has the smallest of the Aran Islands, Inisheer, which is, home to a population of just 250. It also has a state named Dublin which has as the Guinness Storehouse and Book of Kells. When I chose Ireland as my first place for international travel, I was fascinated by the people and the culture of the country. It was the first country to have found the potato and being a potato lover added up.

Ireland and India, are different in terms of culture, the people but we do share the same historic bond. Rebellions in Ireland in the past have motivated people in my country to fight for freedom as well. I hope I am able to plan better and enjoy a harmonious stay in Ireland.

SAMPLE ANSWER 2

Travelling to a new country is altogether a new experience. It teaches so much that one can never compare it to the side traveling that most people today. I have never been to a foreign country but would like to visit Britain or the United Kingdom sometime in future. Great Britain has ruled our country for over 200 years and I have always known the side of us. But, it really interests me in knowing the other side of the coin.

What history exactly Britain holds and how is our country portrayed now in Britain. I would like to visit the Buckingham Palace and the very famous London Eye. Also, there is the Oxford University which I would love to visit. Over a period of time, there are many English movies that I have seen with the background of United Kingdom and I would love to see the countryside of UK.

There are so many more sites I would love to visit the Roman Baths and maybe take a stroll in the Warner Bros Studio. Britain has been a country with a vast difference from India. From the colonial times till date, there are many cultural differences there and I have known the impact of Britishers in India. This time I would love to see how Indians had an impact on the culture of England.

IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # English Lesson

IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # English Lesson

Learning is always more fun when someone teaches it brilliantly. Often students who stop studying are the ones who are not able to either connect with the teacher or the way of teaching. This time we are looking at a cue card that talks about an English lesson that the student enjoyed.
Talk about an English lesson you enjoyed. You should say –

  • who gave the lecture?
  • when did you attend?
  • where did you attend?

also, explain, why do you think the lecture was enjoyable?

SAMPLE ANSWER ONE

School days have been a packet of good and bad memories for me. There were so many subjects and I did not enjoy studying all of them. My favorite was English. I liked the stories and the poems, the characters and how things evolved in them. But, the first time that I understood the joy of learning English was when Swatantra sir taught us. He was our English teacher in class 10th and has been one of the best teachers.

In one of his lectures, he asked us to become the characters of the chapter and everyone had a role to play in it. Coming on stage was very difficult for all of us and then saying those lines, even more. When some of us learned the lines of the chapter, he taught us the art of feeling and expressions.

The lecture is still imprinted in not only my mind but the minds of many others because it taught us that learning has to be fun and it is not about being able to answer those questions in exams but also about understanding the concepts. One of the main reasons it was enjoyable was because it involved all of us.

SAMPLE ANSWER TWO

The corporate world is amazing and just like any other world, the initial years are the best years of it. When I joined a corporate company in my country, they provided us with the initial 6 months of training. In those training days, we were not only taught the technology part but also the soft skills. In one of the lectures, a woman came into our room and asked what we thought of her.

To all our surprise, we had no answers and she went on to say that often we do not express ourselves in order to avoid offending other people. Moving on, she divided our entire class into four parts and held a quiz. We had grammar quiz, vocabulary quiz, authors quiz and so much more. When the session got completed, she said, well this all that I had to teach you.

The reason I enjoyed the lecture was that we could find out what we already know. There was more of learning than repeating. For example, most of us knew what noun is and so there was no point in her teaching that. It was this smartness of her that really made a mark on me. More importantly, we all were starting our careers, the initial years and she said when she was about to leave, work hard but do not forget to enjoy life. She taught us self-confidence and the true way of leading life.

IELTS Cue Card Sample Answers # Recent Bought

We often buy gifts for others and then there are times, we gift ourselves. Things that we know that are important for us, we buy them for ourselves. It could be a camera, laptop, books or for that matter even a dress. This time we are looking at a cue card that talks about an item that you recently bought and are happy about it.

Talk about a thing that you recently bought and are happy about. You should say –

  • what was it?
  • why you bought it?
  • how long have you been using it?

also, explain, why do you think others must also have it.

recent bought is an ielts cue card sample answer to ensure students have enough material to practice for ielts speaking section.

SAMPLE ANSWER

 

For a very long time, I wanted to learn the art of photography. As a kid, I would rejoice clicking pictures from my parent’s phone or for that matter any body’s phone or camera. It was recently that I bought for myself a DSLR to learn photography. It is a Nikon D5300, with two lenses. The 18-55 allows me to shoot photos at a closer distance while the 70-110 helps me by clicking far off photos.

Apart from my keen desire to master photography, I have been a blogger for quite a long time and being a blogger, it is very important for our content to be plagiarism free. Adding to this, a blog with only content often leaves the readers disappointed and gives a sense of a book with only text. Something, most people do not prefer to. So, once my content started sounding genuine, I wished for better photographs. This could have been possible only if I knew how to capture moments. Or else, my work had to depend on someone else.

It has been 8 months since I got the camera and have been using it extensively almost everywhere. From the solo trips that I have taken to my office parties, from the friends gatherings to our crazy fun nights. The camera has helped me in capturing the moments of life in a more beautiful way.

Owning a camera teaches an individual multitude of things. The most important of which I believe is how to see things differently. When one clicks different photographs of the same thing, he or she realizes the different sides of the same thing. Also, I believe one must learn as many skills as he or she can in their lifetime.
