Sample Answer

In these modern times, the hospitality industry is flourishing, especially in tourist destinations. Good hotels add much value to it as they make the vacation episode more exciting.
Today I would like to share my experience of staying in one of the most popular hotel of India, Taj Mahal Palace. This legendary hotel is situated in Mumbai, next to the Gateway of India. It is a five-star luxury hotel which is not only popular among Indians but also internationally known as a lot of foreigners visit here.
The hotel looks like a grandeur palace with six floors and a big dome at the centre. Apart from that there was a portion of hotel that was under construction because that area of hotel was charred after 26/11 terrorist attacks. The security at the hotel was really strict, everyone entering the hotel was thoroughly checked. I had gone with my family and we had lavish stay there. My room was super spacious with antique furniture and it was located on the third floor of the hotel. The windows of room offered a beautiful view of the sea and the Gateway of India. The services provided by the hotel staff was highly appreciable.
I had gone to Mumbai to attend my cousins wedding. It was a three-day event in Colaba and few intimate ceremonies were also held at the same hotel we stayed in, hence we chose this iconic hotel of India to make these days even more memorable.

IELTS Speaking cue card: Describe something you taught to your friend/relative

Describe something you taught to your friend/relative
You should say:

  • what you taught him/her
  • when it was
  • how long it was for
  • and explain how you felt about it

Sample answer

I enjoy teaching and imparting my knowledge with others. Today, I’m going to talk about a time when I taught mathematics to one of my friends.

It’s been quite long, around 10 years. I was pursuing my Bachelor’s from Kurukshetra University. The course comprised three majors: mathematics, science and computer science. Mathematics was a challenging subject. Despite that I obtained excellent grades in mathematics. Sadly, my close friend, Rohit, didn’t get good grades in his first semester exams.  He was unable to understand the fundamentals of calculus and trigonometry. He asked me if I could help him. I willingly agreed.

I started teaching him in the evening. Initially, nothing seemed to move forward as Rohit didn’t have a strong foundation in maths. But, his willingness to learn kept us going. We kept on trying and after a lot of hard work for months, I could see a change in his level.

Overall, I loved sharing my knowledge with Rohit. This help wasn’t out of obligation but out of true friendship to boost his confidence and help him develop his mathematical skills. Being a student, teaching him was a tough task for me as well. At times I had to come up with a new idea to make him understand the question. He always gave his 100% and we managed to successfully clear all mathematics exams together. It was an achievement for both of us, and I will never regret helping a friend in need.

Sample Answer:

I believe learning new skills adds value to our personality and makes us versatile. It is extremely important to enrich oneself with new skills. Therefore I recently learned cooking, which is one the basic life skills that an individual must possess.
One Sunday afternoon, my mother was cooking Honey chilli potato and I asked her to teach me how to cook, that was the first time I cooked along with her. Cooking that day was so fun that I grew interest in it. I also started watching a lot of YouTube tutorials on cooking. Initially, I understood the basics of cooking and gradually started from simple recipes. As practice makes a man perfect. Now, I can say that I’m a wonderful chef and I can make several mouth watering delicacies.

In today’s era it is very easy to teach cooking. I believe cooking is one such skill that everyone must know. In fact I’m planning to start a YouTube channel where I can teach others how to cook. Apart from that my mother has also suggested me to give cooking lessons at home and I would like to give it a second thought. I will prepare a kitchen studio where I can teach online as well as offline.

On the whole, I feel learning to cook has made my life easier. I don’t have to depend on anyone for my meals, now I can cook my own food. It has also made me health conscious as now I’ve a good knowledge about nutrition.
I’m extremely happy to learn this new skill. Whenever I’m bored at home, I try to create some new dishes every time. It’s a fun activity for me which helps me relieve the stress. Specially on weekends I make food for the whole family and we enjoy our meals together and make memories.

IELTS Speaking cue card: A failed plan

Talk about a plan you’ve been making for long but it didn’t work.

You should say

  • what the plan is
  • how long have you been making it
  • why it did not work
  • and explain when you think you can get it done.
SAMPLE ANSWER

Travelling has been one of the things I have on my to-do list for a long time. Visiting new places and meeting people is what gives me a kick and I wish to do it. Living in a northeastern state of my country, there are many things I can explore and have on my list.

A few years back, I hitch-hiked to a place near Bhubaneswar, Puri. Although the trip was amazing, I felt it could have been better in the company of my loved ones. Since then, I have been trying to convince my friends to travel along with me to places like Kolkata, Vishakapatnam. But, we all are failing in keeping up with the exciting plans that we make. Sometimes because of work pressure, other times because of priority differences.

I remember having extended the plan of going to Kolkata for now around 6 months. But, with the coming of new year, the resolution is to make sure that I travel more with my friends and sometimes make new friends along the journey.

Recently, I visited a travel website, make my trip, that allows people from different places to come together and enjoy new places. On telling this plan to my friends, some of them have agreed on to it. And, we are hoping to travel the east of India in the next 6 months this year.
