IELTS CUE CARD – Describe your favourite season
Describe your favourite season
- What kind of season it is
- When this season usually occurs
- Explain why you like this type of season and what you usually do during this season
Each one of us has personal preferences regarding the season they like. Some like summers, some like winters while others enjoy the rainy season. If I talk about myself, my favourite season is the winter.
I was born and brought up in Dehradun popularly called the Doon valley. It is situated in the foothills of Mussoorie, one of the coldest hill stations of Northern India. Due to its geographical location the Doon enjoys all four seasons. The weather begins to change around mid-October, when the mornings and evenings start getting a bit colder. The winter season sets in November and ends in February. Despite being cold, the days are sunny. I like to bask in the sun with a hot cup of tea and read a book on a cold sunny morning. I usually spend hours reading in my garden without really being bothered by what’s happening around. There are special flowers that bloom during this season, the chrysanthemums and marigolds are the most common varieties. I love to gaze at these flowers in my garden in between my reading sessions.
A wide range of winter foods is another specialty of this season. I love to cook and I spend my time in the kitchen cooking hot meals which are a favourite among all my family members. Usually, at the end of the day I take a cup of hot milk and watch my favourite TV show before going to bed.
I follow this routine throughout the 3-4 months of the winter that prevails in my town. This is the most enjoyable period of the year. I always look forward to this season.
