Sample Answer

Changes are an integral part of our life. Today, I’m going to talk about a recent change that I brought about in my life.
I am pursuing a 4-year diploma in hotel management. It’s is a full-time course which includes a lot of lectures and practical work. Spending long hours in college, part-time work, and project work in the library, not to mention other responsibilities – all of them started taking their toll on me. I became stressed, sleep deprived and cranky. I was generally frustrated, short-tempered and unhappy.

My friends posed an intervention and told me they were worried for me, this statement really awakened me. I thought I could handle the stress but seeing them suffer the side effects of my workaholism, I decided to do something about it.

I joined yoga classes in the morning. Initially, I felt that this might be a waste of time but I was proven wrong when my classmates said I looked happier and refreshed. I myself noticed a change in my aura and productivity.

This change redefined my outlook on things, I noticed that little things do in fact matter. In today’s fast-paced world, we have forgotten the true essence of life. We should keep on making small experimental changes in our life. They give it a splash of colour. All in all, this change had a positive impact on me and my loved ones. I will definitely continue to do yoga no matter where I go.

IELTS Speaking cue card: A goal you achieved

IELTS Speaking Cue Card: A goal you achieved

Describe a goal you achieved which was set by yourself. You should say

  • What the goal was
  • When you set it
  • Why you set it
  • And explain what you did to achieve the goal.

SAMPLE ANSWER

Goals play an indispensable role in our life. Here, I’d like to talk about a time when I set the goal of reducing my social media usage.

In general, I’m not very active on Facebook, Instragram and other social platforms. But, last year during winter vacations I started spending a considerable amount of time on Facebook. Long discussions with friends about the latest Hollywood movies, reality shows and celebrities became a daily routine.

Initially, it was full of fun and I didn’t think that it could affect my studies. Within 4 weeks, however, the whole situation changed. My performance in the preliminary exams conducted after the holidays was very poor. I failed in 2 subjects: physics and mathematics.

The reason was obvious to me. The holidays that were meant for final exam preparation were wasted in social networking and chats. Certainly, if I’d studied hard, this wouldn’t have happened. On the way to home, a big dilemma prevailed over me: Should I show the report card to my parents or not? Despite knowing that it was wrong, I chose to hide the result. Had they seen it, they would’ve been very disappointed. That day I set the goal of decreasing my social media time and study well. 

To achieve my goal, the first thing I did was to deactivate my Facebook account temporarily. Setting up a timetable was the next phase of the plan. For months together, I chased the lost time. In the end, the outcome was positive – I passed the final exams with excellent grades. Even though it may seem small, it was a big goal for a 14-year-old high school student. At last, I decided to show the hidden report card to my parents along with the final report card. They seemed to be proud that I’d noticed my own faults and worked upon them, but they also stressed that they were my parents for a reason and I ought to come to them when such a mistake occurs.

IELTS Writing task 2: Spending money on life beyond earth: discuss

Writing task 2

If governments should spend money on finding life beyond earth or is it a waste of money and we should focus on problems on earth.

Discuss.

Write at least 250 words.

Sample Answer

Every year governments of rich nations spend billions of dollars for exploration of space and extra-terrestrial life. Considering the problems on earth, this expenditure on space programmes has become a highly debatable topic. Some people are in favour of investing time and money in search for life beyond earth. Others, however, feel that this money should be used for improving the quality of life on earth. In my opinion, space research is an investment for our future generations. Definitely, pressing problems like famine, illiteracy, unemployment, poverty and many more deserve attention. Sincere efforts at a national and global level are required to solve them.

It is certainly true that space research is an expensive affair. In my view, the ultimate objective of searching extra-terrestrial life is to find a new home for humans. If we look at the exploitation of resources like land, water and fossil fuels etc., it is possible that our earth will not be able to sustain the pressure of rising population. Exploring space is therefore paramount for a sustainable future. If we look for life beyond earth, we can come across fascinating discoveries such as planets that can be our future motherland.

Coming to the current issues on earth, the biggest problem is the unfettered growth of global population which has crossed the mark of 7.5 billion. Fulfilling the basic needs such as food, accommodation, and education etc. of their citizens is a herculean task for the governments of underdeveloped and developing countries. Climate change, pollution and terrorism are some other major global problems. Unquestionably, handling these problems is as important as finding life beyond earth.

To sum up, spending money in search for extra-terrestrial life is vital. It should not be viewed as a waste of money.

IELTS Letter: Request for a new room/dorm

IELTS Letter: Request for a new room/dorm

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
You live in a room which you share with another student. You have some problems with your roommate.

Write a letter to the accommodation officer of the college to change your room. In your letter

  • mention the problems you are facing
  • say how these problems are affecting you
  • request for a new room.

You do NOT need to write your own address.

Begin your letter as follows.

Dear Sir/Madam,

You should write at least 150 words.

Sample Answer

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing you to request for a new room in the halls of residence as I am facing problems with my current roommate.

The biggest problem is that I am unable to study or even sleep in my room because my roommate has a lot of friends who visit him every day in the evening. They are quite noisy and bothersome. They listen to loud music and play cards till late night. The room has just become a place of entertainment for him and his friends. Furthermore, he often borrows my personal belongings like backpacks, electronic devices and clothes without asking me. I find it very annoying.

His irresponsible behavior has seriously affected my studies. I used to be a bright student in my school but I got average grades in the first semester. Because of these results, I have lost my confidence. I fear if this situation were to extend for much longer, I would have no option but to change my college altogether. For you see I am a student and cannot afford to live outside college or even have a drastic decline in my studies for that matter.

I have tried to talk with him about this issue, to no avail. And thus I find myself having to report the severity of this predicament and to bring it to your notice. I hope by doing so I might be relocated to a more considerable roommate’s presence or if possible not have a roommate at all. As you are probably aware, next term are the semester examinations. If I am found to be lacking in those, I might be asked to leave this college, which as I mentioned previously would be a harsh circumstance.

I hope to hear from you soon.
Yours faithfully,
Sagar Victor
