IELTS Cue Card # Dream House

We all want to live in a kind of house that motivates us to be something and do something. The kind of house that we enter and feel like home and where we can relax. Now, everyone has their own idea of a dream house. Let us today have a look at some of the possible answers related to a cue card about dream house.

Describe a house or apartment you want to live in.

You should say:

  • What it would look like?
  • Where it would be located?
  • What facilities it would have?

and explain why you want to live there.

Sample Answer One

Home is where the heart is. We all have dreams and things we want from our lives. It’s ok to be materialistic in life and there is no harm in having some luxuries. I was born and raised up in a valley surrounded by hills so I’d like my dream house to be ideally located somewhere in between the hills. The location of the house will be a semi urban area as there are certain places in the hills that are secluded and there are no facilities available for miles. I’d like my dream home to be located in Mussoorie, a small hill station resting on the foothills of the Himalayas in northern India.
The house will be a medium sized bungalow with two floors, a front and a back garden and have all the modern day amenities. The building will be designed as such that all the windows of the bungalow will overlook the Doon valley. The architecture will be of Victorian era as it will give a very colonial look to the place. The ground floor will have a big common room adjoining a modular kitchen and a bar which will have spirits from different parts of the earth. The climate is cold so all the windows of the bungalow will be double glazed to provide insulation and protect us in the harsh cold weather. The upper floor will have a big master bedroom along with two other guest bedrooms.
As I live in the city, so I’ll use this house as a holiday home and to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Located in nature’s lap it will be a perfect relaxation spot and a perfect holiday. Once in my latter years of life, I’d like to retire there and live a calm and peaceful life in a serene environment.

Sample Answer Two

We all as humans dream fancy about our houses. So, there are some who want all the luxuries in their house while some prefer living close to nature. I want my house to be a mimic of nature. So, I want a small waterfall in my house wherein I can take bath and then I want my house to have lot of flowers and be surrounded by trees. So, that in the evening when I wish to sit down, I should feel calm and serene from inside.

Then, I want my house to have a library as well. Library of the books that I have already read, so it will be more like a collection of books that I love and could offer others to read and in the library there will be my study table and in one corner will be the place where I could look out of window and see the entire nature at its best and have some thing to drink or relax. There will be part of my house, where I will allow anyone to come in and sleep over and have food just for free. Because, I want people to travel and travel with entire safety. With nothing to worry, I want them to explore this beautiful world.
Also, in my house I wish to have a beautiful field wherein I could go for jogging or play some games. I don’t wish for the most expensive house in the world but I wish for the house that is the most special for me.

Sample Answer Three

Everyone has lot of dreams about their house. I too have. I wish my house to be a duplex building with spacious rooms and corridors. It is very important for me to be able to move freely and I wish to have ample space even after placing the furniture. The house should be well ventilated and the view from outside the window should be of something close to nature. I would love to have a balcony in my house with my bedroom facing the south side from where I could smell the fragrance from the garden. At the night times, I will place a chair on the balcony to enjoy the night views, especially the moonlit nights.

Although I like natural places, but for my house I would like it to be in the middle. So, somewhere where it is not very far from the city neither too close to the town. It should have the feel of a city life with no troubles that it brings along with it, like lot of traffic and noise pollution. Even more, the house should have all the modern amenities. It should have a telephone connection with which I can connect with the entire world and then there should be Internet.

Also, I need a garage wherein I can keep my car and the roof of the house should also be large as I intend to plant some small plants on the rooftop garden. Even more, it is very important to have good quality fittings, tiles and necessary elements in the kitchen and bathrooms.

Ultimately, I want to live in a big house wherein I can have a feeling of a house and can roam about freely because that is very important.

IELTS Speaking cue card: a good news you heard about your relatives. Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in dehradun

Sample Answer

I am very close to some of my relatives, especially my aunt and her son. I share a strong bond with both of them. Today, I’m going to talk about a happy news which I received about my cousin-brother.

I live in Dehradun and my aunt lives in New Delhi. Last Sunday I went to New Delhi for some official work. Despite having a tight work schedule, I managed to go to my aunt’s house for some time in the evening. She had prepared a delicious dinner for me. During dinner she told me about my cousin brother’s selection as a senior manager in a Five Star Hotel in London. Currently, he works as a manger in Hotel Hyatt, a luxury hotel, in New Delhi.

I felt ambivalent when I heard this news. On one hand, I was very happy about his achievement. He has worked hard to reach that level. This job offer was a reward of his hard work and perseverance.  On the other hand, I was sad because he is the only child my aunt has. She would be alone if he went to London. How would she live without him? All these questions were coming to my mind. To be honest, I didn’t discuss these concerns with her. It was their personal decision to accept or reject the offer. I had nothing to do with that. I wholeheartedly congratulated her and came to Dehradun the next day.

Speaking CUE CARD – Describe a time when you borrowed something from someone

Describe a time when you borrowed something from someone.

  • What did you borrow?

Oh! I remember a time when I was appearing in my final exams in class twelfth. I was taking an exam and suddenly I ran out of ink. A day prior, I had planned to buy a new pen, but then it slipped out of my mind, and I forgot to buy it. Making things worse, Mr. Cloyd was our invigilator that day. He was one of the most feared teachers in our school. He was known for his discipline and his strict demeanor. He was certainly not the kind of person you would go to for help. I hesitantly asked him if I could borrow a pen from someone. Contrary to my expectations, he pulled out a pen out of his pocket and gave it to me. On top of that, there was a smile on his face. An hour later when I went to return it to his office he asked me to keep the pen and wished me good luck for my future.

 I don’t know what got into him that day, but his kind gesture really left me stunned. I had always thought of him as someone to be the last person who would provide any kind of help but there he was, helping me in my time of need. We humans tend to make our opinions very quickly. We have this propensity of judging people, even before we know them well. I learnt from this experience that it’s always better to avoid having any preconceived notions about people, and to really make judgments about them only after we know them well. (294 words)

IELTS cue card: Leisure activity with your family

IELTS Cue Card: Talk about a leisure activity that you enjoy with your family

 

  • How often do you do it?
  • What do you usually do?
  • Who do you do it with most of the time?
  • Would you like to do more of it?

Leisure activity with your family, How often do you do it? What do you usually do? Who do you do it with most of the time? Would you like to do more of it?

Sample Answer

I left home when I was seventeen and have never lived there full time since. My mother got sick last month and was admitted to a hospital. She was discharged three days later. I went to see her, but since I was very busy at the time, I couldn’t stay with her much longer.

I felt the guilt and asked my employer if I could get an entire week off to spend some quality time with my parents and help my mother recover. My leaves were sanctioned and I visited my parents with my wife. Since it was a surprise, they got shocked and my mother started crying. I took them out for dinner, and upon returning, made them a nice cup of tea, just as they like. My father is a big fan of Sean Connery, so I hired a DVD starring him. We didn’t go to the cinema as the doctors had advised my mother not to stress herself out.

Though it was nothing fancy what we did, but my parents and I had a really great time together. I have only one sister and as she works abroad, it’s very hard for me to spend some leisure time with her. It’s only my parents then who I would like to visit every month and have a great time with.
