My city is a very important city with a high population and many famous hotspots such as markets and landmarks. The Chandni Chowk market area is located in the city of New Delhi. It is one of the most crowded places in the city and hosts a large number of people on a daily basis.
This place is mostly made up of shops and shopfronts with houses and apartments on the back sides or above the shops. The place remains crowded for the most part as visitors throng in the place every day to buy electronics or home care products. I visited Chandni chowk during the last autumn in the month of October. It was a part of my four-day visit to Delhi for a family vacation.
On the last day, I went to this market area to look for and buy a few things as gifts to my friends and to buy a few specific food items available in some very old and famous shops in the area. The market was very crowded that day. All sorts of people were hurrying about in order to sell or buy something. I went around in different shops with my cousins and bought whatever I needed. I had to bargain with the shopkeepers very quickly as there were a lot of customers waiting to buy stuff.
All in all, it was a great experience, even though it was very hectic and tiring. I got to meet so many new people and to buy many new things. It was also great to experience and relish new food items and tastes.
IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card: Talk about the happiest situation in your life.
Happiness is the one feeling that can shape our lives. When a person is happy he or she is more likely to take better decisions and do right things with his or her life rather than comparing it to the time when he or she is not so excited about his or project. This time we are looking at the IELTS cue card that talks about the happiest situation in the life of an individual.
Talk about the happiest situation in your life. You should say –
What was the situation?
When did it happen?
What landed you in the situation?
Explain, how do you feel about it?

There have been many times I have felt happy about my life, but if I had to talk about the happiest situation, it was when I got placed in a leading company. It was after a lot of perseverance that I landed myself into the company. I joined around three years back and it has been an amazing ride since I have joined the company.
Actually, I consider myself to be a hard-working individual, and I have proved it time and again. One day my seniors organised a meeting with all the associates and told us about a very difficult assignment which needed to be worked upon for a client. We received different task allocations and started working upon them. After poring into the data and figuring out the solutions, I finished my work and submitted it. I then proceeded to help my colleagues and played my part in finishing the project before the deadline. During all this time, our seniors kept a close eye on our individual progress.
Now at the next meeting, we were told that our work was good and the client appreciated our efforts. My manager called me over and proceeded to announce that everyone was pleased by my exceptional work ethics, and they have decided to promote me as a team leader. My joy knew no bounds at that moment and I thanked everyone profusely. I felt satisfied knowing that my efforts helped me achieve success. It is indeed a great feeling when your endeavor pays off with such results.
Describe a time when you borrowed something from someone.
What did you borrow?
How did it help you?
What lesson, if any, did you learn from your experience?
Oh! I remember a time when I was appearing in my final exams in class twelfth. I was taking an exam and suddenly I ran out of ink. A day prior, I had planned to buy a new pen, but then it slipped out of my mind, and I forgot to buy it. Making things worse, Mr. Cloyd was our invigilator that day. He was one of the most feared teachers in our school. He was known for his discipline and his strict demeanor. He was certainly not the kind of person you would go to for help. I hesitantly asked him if I could borrow a pen from someone. Contrary to my expectations, he pulled out a pen out of his pocket and gave it to me. On top of that, there was a smile on his face. An hour later when I went to return it to his office he asked me to keep the pen and wished me good luck for my future.
I don’t know what got into him that day, but his kind gesture really left me stunned. I had always thought of him as someone to be the last person who would provide any kind of help but there he was, helping me in my time of need. We humans tend to make our opinions very quickly. We have this propensity of judging people, even before we know them well. I learnt from this experience that it’s always better to avoid having any preconceived notions about people, and to really make judgments about them only after we know them well. (294 words)
