BORED IELTS CUE CARD IELTS DEHRADUN

Sample Answer

Today I am going to recount a day in which I was quite bored. In fact, this happened last week.

I was lounging around on my bed, not knowing what to do as I had just finished reading the entire Percy Jackson series in the past 3 days, it had kept me nicely occupied. Now however, I did not have the energy to start a new book series or movie. I did not have any chores left either; my bed was made, the clothes were washed, the bookshelf dusted, and the dishes were done. Indeed, I was at liberty to do anything; Anything except leave the house that is. Funny how when going outside was legal, all I wanted to do was stay indoors, and now, after hardly two weeks of staying indoors, all I could think of is going outside. I was waiting desperately for corona-virus lock-down end-date.

Later on, I even tried to chase away this feeling of disinterest by watching YouTube, figuring that was the best way to procrastinate and waste away my time. As it turns out, the awareness of not actually procrastinating lured the thrill of even YouTube comedy away, it too, became dull. Now I was truly stumped. What was I to do?

Just then my mother walked into the room. I found just what I wanted to do. I would take up my favourite childhood pastime, annoying my darling mum. And thus, I began asking my mum random questions, nonsense questions, questions even god himself would ponder over. She humoured me and gave equally illogical answers. This was our favourite game, invented a long time ago, when I was learning to explore the world. Our game soon evolved into a serious conversation, speculation and debate. This time, we concluded that the purpose of human life was to create, for creation is fun, stagnation is frustration. Like how the creation of new ideas, novel projects give thrills; and how tedious, repetitive tasks, are akin to torture.

Indeed, I found this revelation to be a very fitting note to end upon, in the face of the boredom I had in the day. I had been bored, because I was doing nothing new, it was all mundane. (360 Words)

Talk about a time when you teamed up with an old person

Sample Answer

Teaming up with an elderly can be a memorable experience. Today, I’m going to share one such experience with you.

I was in 10th class. The preparation for board exams was a never ending process. I found it quite hard to stick to a monotonous routine. Finally, the exams got over but they had drained my energy. All I wanted was a change in my daily routine. My parents were working full-time. They took many days off during my exams. Naturally, it wasn’t possible for them to take me on a holiday. At last, I asked my grandfather if he could come and take me to the village.

To my surprise, he came the very next day. I was very excited about my holidays. I packed my bag and we happily set off in the afternoon. We reached the village late in the evening. My grandfather showed me the house. Even though it was dark, I could clearly see some work was going on in the garden. My grandpa said we would work together tomorrow.

The morning was beautiful. After breakfast I went to the garden. It looked a little rusty and needed a make-over. My grandpa was building a bench. I observed him for a while and then joined him. The bench was ready in the evening. We decided to place it in front of the pond. Our next plan was to plant some new colourful flowers. He had already bought pots of many different shapes and sizes. So, I helped him in filling them in with soil and compost and planting flowers like marigolds, lilies and dahlias etc. We kept all plants at different places. I dug out a fire pit too.

Our garden renovation project lasted for more than a week. I loved it as each day was different. We could see the progress of our work which gave us a sense of fulfillment. Together we transformed a dull garden into a lovely outdoor space. All in all, it was the best time I’ve ever spent with an old man. I will never forget those holidays.
