Cue Card: A expensive hobby you can’t pursue daily

IELTS Cue Card- A expensive hobby you can’t pursue daily

Describe an expensive hobby you can’t pursue daily
You should say:
• What it is
• Why it is expensive
• Why you wish to pursue it
And explain when you are planning on doing it in near future.

Sample Answer

Hobbies cultivate a man. There are lot of different hobbies like drawing, dancing, painting etc. that I’ve pursued since childhood. A hobby I’ve developed in my late teens is travelling.

Social networking sites today are flooded with people posing and writing about their vivid travel stories. This is inspiring young travel enthusiasts like me to take up bits and pieces from their side and have some amazing travel experiences. But, travelling isn’t a hobby that I can always manage, especially on a student budget. It turns out to be quite expensive. Travelling involves lot of expenditure on accommodation, transport and food etc.

Travelling is food for the soul. I think that everybody will agree to this idea. Travelling helps one adapt to different cultures and understand the people and places. It makes one open from the bondages of stereotypes and uplifts one’s horizons. On a personal level, travelling has helped me a lot. It has made me a more awakened person and helped me build my self confidence. One can travel both with friends and alone. I prefer travelling alone as it gives me a lot of time to pursue my own passion and activities which aren’t so often done on normal days.

I plan on going for a cultural trip to Pondicherry in the coming holidays. To make it possible I have been surfing the internet to find affordable hotels to stay. I wish to go there as the place has a rich French influenced architecture. It’s known for its historical monuments and special dishes. I plan on experiencing a part of their culture and their lives. According to me, travelling can be pursued by anybody irrespective of the age and gender constraints. It’s a hobby that one must cultivate.

Swimming # IELTS Speaking Sample Answer

SWIMMING

Swimming is an activity or more so sport. So, it is possible that you may know swimming or may not. Let us have a look at some of the sample questions and possible answers that might be asked in the speaking section 1.

Can you swim?

Yes, I can. We were taught swimming when I was in Class VIII, in my school. It was compulsory for us to learn swimming at that time, and I am thankful to the school to teach us.

Are there many places to swim near you?

Yes, there are few public swimming pool in our city. One of them is very close to my house. There is also a big indoor sports complex in our city, wherein there are two or more swimming pools. Also, some outdoor swimming pools available, but one can use them only in summers as they are very cold in the winters.

Do you think everyone should learn how to swim?

Surely, yes. I think it is very important these days. A person who knows swimming can actually go on and enjoy a different aspect of life i.e. water. Like, if you go on to a beach with your friends, you can enjoy yourself with your friends. Even more, it is very helpful for security reasons and I think it is very important for children to learn it.

IELTS Cue Card Sample Question # Invention

Curiosity is the mother of all inventions. It is these innovations that help the human race to move forward, make changes and do things differently. For instance, the invention of electricity brought about humongous changes in the life style of human beings. This time we are looking at a cue card that talks about an invention that changed the people’s life.

Describe an invention that changed human lives. You should say –

  • what is it?
  • who invented it?
  • when was it invented?

also explain, how did it change human lives?

Innovation IELTS band7

SAMPLE ANSWER

Every big invention always touches upon human lives and brings about changes. Be it, personal computers, wheels, electricity, aeroplane, the history is filled with the stories of great inventions. I would like to talk about the printing press. German Johannes Guttenberg invented it in the fifteenth century. The printing press uses a mechanised way of transferring ink to the movable type. This movable type process exponentially increases the speed of printing books.

It ultimately led to the rapid and widespread dissemination of knowledge for the first time in human history. Bible was the first book to be published using the Guttenberg printing press. It was the mass production of Bible, that actually led a lot of interpretations about it. For the first time in history, a scientist could easily convey their inventions, leading to a scientific revolution. Also, the literacy rate in adults increased leading to a more knowledgeable society in large. Students began to learn better and grasp concepts better than others.

Some people believe that it was the printing press that actually led to the industrial revolution, the rise of nationalism and much more! It actually did change the way people lived.

Cue card: Describe something you got for free

IELTS Cue card: Describe something you got for free

Describe something you got for free.
You should say:

  • what it is/was
  • when you got it
  • how you got it
  • and explain how you felt about it.

Sample answer:

Things for which we don’t have to pay have their own charm. Today, I’m going to talk about one such time when I got something for free.

I live in Dehradun. Last week I planned to go to Chandigarh to visit a close friend. She loves toffees and chocolates. Whenever I visit her, I buy some chocolates or a small present for her. But, this time I forgot to take anything for her.

On the way, the bus stopped for some time. I hurriedly got down and bought a box of chocolates. The journey was quite long, I was hungry too, so I took one bar from the box. When I unwrapped it, I saw a Domino’s Pizza coupon of 1000 INR. It was quite hard to believe first, but when I checked it thoroughly and called the given number, its validity was confirmed.

One can imagine how I would have felt. Certainly, I was more than happy. When I reached Chandigarh, my friend and I went to Domino’s. We used the coupon which I found in the bar. We ordered one big pizza, cold drinks and dessert – almost everything for free. We had to pay a small amount only. We enjoyed the meal and returned home. It became a memorable day for both of us.
