IELTS Speaking latest cue card 2020. Describe a picture or a photograph in your home /room that you likeWhat is it about?


Some photographs are for decoration while some capture the best moments of our lives and keep our memories of those cherished moments alive. A few months ago, I was going through my collection of photo albums when a family photo caught my attention. It is one of my favourite photographs where I am standing with my parents in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. It was taken several years ago when I visited Paris with my parents as a child.  I got it framed recently and it is placed on the wall above the study table in my bedroom.

Whenever I look at the picture it reminds me of the good times I had with my parents especially during that particular vacation abroad. I remember vividly, it was my birthday and this trip to see the Eiffel Tower was a gift from my parents. I can clearly recall how my parents had a small celebration near the water fountains and rows of flowers, where this picture was taken. It was one of the best birthday celebrations I ever had as a child.

My parents have grown old now and when I see this photograph it brings back fond memories of my childhood. I don’t see them often now as I have moved to another city and whenever I miss them I have a look at the photograph. It doesn’t let me feel lonely and I feel them around me. Seeing my parents extremely young and lively in it brings a gentle smile on my face!

Vivid very clear and detailed e.g. Some people have a vivid imagination.

loving and affectionate e.g. I am fond of eating out on a weekend.
