  • how you know about this period of history
  • what its importance is in history

SAMPLE ANSWER-  

My country, India is quite recognized for its rich and prosperous history. One such historical period was the Indus Valley civilization that existed long back but its prevalence was recently revealed in the 1900s by an Archeological survey. It was believed to be the core of art and culture during those days. 

When I first studied about this civilization in class and the planning of this period’s urbanization, it captivated me to a great extent. It was the first time that I took interest in history while learning about this time period. I learned that even in that era when there were limited resources available, the people of Indus Valley civilization enjoyed a highly developed city life.  

This mysterious civilization was situated on the banks of the river Indus, the present day Pakistan. I think that it’s an important part of the historical culture as the town-planning and water management system which the people followed during that time is an excellent example for the modern world. Despite the absence of educational facilities, it is said that people who belonged to this time period had built well equipped sanitary facilities and harvesting system as well. When I further looked at the remains of artifacts of this civilization, I was actually convinced that citizens of this civilization led a comfortable and luxurious life. 

I’m keen to learn more this time period and what led to its destruction. Though the town had well managed farming and architectural construction, archeologists are carrying on their research related to the specific cause of its disappearance. It is said that today’s world has a lot to learn about urbanization and administration from the remains of the Indus Valley civilization.

IELTS Cue Card An interesting person from a foreign country V2

Sample Answer

Today, I’m going to talk about a foreigner who I think is extremely interesting.

I work as a software developer in a multinational company called Capgemini. At present, we’re working on an international project and there are many foreigners in my team. I’ve a healthy relationship with all of them but I particularly like my team leader.

His name is Martin Henze. He is from Germany. Martin has a Master’s degree in Computer Science from the Technical University of Munich. I first met him in April 2015 when I went to Munich for attending a conference. It’s been almost three years since then.

In my view, Martin is a captivating person. He has many personal and professional attributes which make him special. Professionally, his in-depth knowledge of computer programming and problem-solving skills differentiate him from others. He also has effective communication and presentation skills. His excellent rapport with his colleagues and leadership skills can’t go unnoticed.

Personally, Martin has a pleasing personality. He is very kind and generous. He never shows off his seniority and treats everyone equally. All of us can share our views freely with him. If anyone has a suggestion to improve something, he always listens to them. In my view, developing all these skills is not at all easy. One has to work really hard to develop them and be like him. In short, Martin is my professional role model.

IELTS Cue Card The first time you saw an interesting bird

Sample Answer

Today I am going to narrate a particularly vivid memory about a flock of parrots.

I was around 12 years old at the time. My family and I had just moved back from Europe to India. This was a large shift for me as I had spent the majority of my little lifetime abroad and knew precious little about my home country.

It was my first day of school, assembly period to be more precise. The school held its assembly in the open-air amphitheatre. I had just been told to stand in line with what I presumed was my new class. Everyone had their heads bowed at prayer time and I was trying my very best to blend in as inconspicuously as possible. As the national anthem started up, everyone stood at attention, this was again, a very foreign concept to me, but I copied them all the same.

Just as I raised my head, I recall being quite shocked to see a flock of brightly coloured parrots zoom over my head. I was in awe at the time, I couldn’t believe that such exotic birds could just roam free in such natural abundance. For you see, back in Germany, parrots could not even be found in zoos! The ecosystem and bird species were poles apart. While jays, magpies, longspurs and pipits are a common sight in the north-west, here in the south we have pheasants, peacocks and parrots. For a twelve-year-old, you might just as well have shown me saber tooth tigers; I was that blown away.

What’s more, later that day when I was walking home, I spotted an old man feeding some parrots by hand! As if this was a common sight. Those two events left a memorable impression on me, for I had learned first-hand how different the world was around the globe, and what was peculiar in one part, might be a common tale in others. The parrots that I saw that day, symbolized that thought for me. That is why, even today, parrots are more beautiful and exotic and interesting to me, than they would be to most locals.

Level IELTS Band9 There are numerous national and international companies in my country. Today, I’m going to talk about an organization I would like to be a part of. The name of the organization is the Indian Space Research Organization, commonly known as the ISRO. It is the space agency of the government of India headquartered in Bangalore, Karnataka. It was founded by Dr. Vikram Sarabhai in 1969. The ISRO has many centers which are located in different regions of India. I have a keen interest in celestial objects like stars, galaxies and black holes. My father’s close friend is a scientist in the ISRO. I have learnt a lot about the projects of this organization from him. In addition, I had the opportunity to visit the ISRO Satellite Center on a school trip. Over the last 47 years, the ISRO has emerged as one of the six largest space agencies in the world. It develops and delivers services in various fields. Communication, weather forecast, disaster management tools, geographic information systems, navigation, telemedicine and distant education satellites are some of them. Its mission of using space research for the development of the nation has always inspired me to become a scientist.
