IELTS Speaking Cue Card: A goal you achieved

Describe a goal you achieved which was set by yourself. You should say

  • What the goal was
  • When you set it
  • Why you set it
  • And explain what you did to achieve the goal.

SAMPLE ANSWER

Goals play an indispensable role in our life. Here, I’d like to talk about a time when I set the goal of reducing my social media usage.

In general, I’m not very active on Facebook, Instragram and other social platforms. But, last year during winter vacations I started spending a considerable amount of time on Facebook. Long discussions with friends about the latest Hollywood movies, reality shows and celebrities became a daily routine.

Initially, it was full of fun and I didn’t think that it could affect my studies. Within 4 weeks, however, the whole situation changed. My performance in the preliminary exams conducted after the holidays was very poor. I failed in 2 subjects: physics and mathematics.

The reason was obvious to me. The holidays that were meant for final exam preparation were wasted in social networking and chats. Certainly, if I’d studied hard, this wouldn’t have happened. On the way to home, a big dilemma prevailed over me: Should I show the report card to my parents or not? Despite knowing that it was wrong, I chose to hide the result. Had they seen it, they would’ve been very disappointed. That day I set the goal of decreasing my social media time and study well. 

To achieve my goal, the first thing I did was to deactivate my Facebook account temporarily. Setting up a timetable was the next phase of the plan. For months together, I chased the lost time. In the end, the outcome was positive – I passed the final exams with excellent grades. Even though it may seem small, it was a big goal for a 14-year-old high school student. At last, I decided to show the hidden report card to my parents along with the final report card. They seemed to be proud that I’d noticed my own faults and worked upon them, but they also stressed that they were my parents for a reason and I ought to come to them when such a mistake occurs.

SAMPLE ANSWER

Nowadays, traffic congestion has become a major concern in many cities across the globe. This essay will discuss the reasons behind this problem and suggest possible measures that can be implemented to handle the situation.

One of the major reasons is that the ownership of vehicles has increased in the past few years which leads to soaring number of automobiles on roads. According to some reports, Hong Kong experienced one of the biggest traffic congestions in 2014 which lasted for more than 24 hours. Secondly, in many cities the infrastructure for public transport is not fully developed and it is not available for the entire day. Due to which people prefer to use private mode of transport over public transport. Thirdly, many cities around the world are not built with proper planning and also there are narrow roads which obstruct people from commuting.

Certain measures can be taken to deal with this situation. Firstly, government should increase the quality of public transport by providing frequent services. In addition to this, fares of government transportation should also be reduced in order to promote it. Another measure is to construct wide roads and bridges so that traffic can move smoothly during peak hours. Furthermore, separate cycle lanes should be constructed and people should be encouraged to ride bicycles. Finally, major city centres or crowded places of the city must be declared car free and fine should be imposed on those who do not follow the rules.

To sum up, by developing public transport and making rules stringent, the problem of traffic congestion can be reduced to a great extent.

IELTS Speaking latest cue card 2020. Describe a festival that is important in your country? Best BAND7 IELTS Dehradun IELTS online simulator IELTS BAND 7 Coaching Classes

SAMPLE ANSWER

India is a country of festivals and celebrations. But here I would like to talk about one of the most popular festivals of North India. It is called Diwali.

It is celebrated every year either in the month of October or November. The festival celebrates victory of good over evil and its historical significance is related with Sikh and Hindu religions.

According to the Hindu mythology, Diwali is celebrated to mark the return of Lord Rama to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile. The people of Ayodhya welcomed him by illuminating and decorating the place with earthen lamps.

The preparations of the festival goes on for a month and is celebrated with great pomp and show. People renovate, clean and decorate their houses. Houses are decorated with light bulbs and many people make floral or geometric patterns on the floor by using different colours, which is called rangoli. People exchange gifts and sweets with their loved ones. In the evening, people worship Goddess Lakshmi who is considered the Goddess of wealth and prosperity. Various delicacies including sweets are also prepared on this day. Children love to burst fire crackers and wear new clothes.

I too enjoy celebrating this festival with my friends and family as it keeps us connected with our tradition. The only thing I dislike about the festival is the bursting of fire crackers. It leads to air and noise pollution which leads to certain health problems among elderly and the young ones.

IELTS Cue Card # Describe a television program that you watch.

IELTS Cue Card about a television program.

Describe a television program that you watch.
You should say:

  • which kind of television programme that is
  • what usually happens in the television programme
  • why you enjoy watching the television programme
  • and explain why you would recommend the television programme to other people.
Sample Answer:

I would like to talk about HOUSE MD. It is an American television medical drama. The series’ main character is Dr Gregory House played by Hugh Laurie, an unconventional, misanthropic medical genius who, despite his dependence on pain medication, leads a team of diagnosticians at the fictional Princeton–Plainsboro Teaching Hospital (PPTH) in New Jersey.
House often clashes with his fellow physicians, including his own diagnostic team, because many of his hypotheses about patients’ illnesses are based on subtle or controversial insights. His flouting of hospital rules and procedures frequently leads him into conflict with his boss, hospital administrator and Dean of Medicine Dr Lisa Cuddy played by Lisa Edelstein. House’s only true friend is Dr James Wilson played by Robert Sean Leonard, head of the Department of Oncology.
I really like watching House, for Gregory and his unconventional medical theories and practices (like giving placebo to patients) and on the other characters’ reactions to them, rather than on the details of the treatments. He frequently proclaims during the team’s deliberations, “The patient is lying”, or “Everybody lies”; such an assumption guides House’s decisions and diagnoses. Because many of his hypotheses are based on epiphanies or controversial insights, he often has trouble obtaining permission for medical procedures he considers necessary from his superior.
Total of eight seasons, House was among the top 10 series in the United States from its second through fourth seasons. Distributed to 66 countries, House was the most-watched television program in the world in 2008. I would recommend it to other people for, this series offers insight into the medical world and various types of diseases which most of us have never heard of. And how by running differential diagnosis and listing etiologies they finally narrow down to the cause, find the correct diagnosis and save the patient. (301 words)
