IELTS Writing Sample Answer # Famous at Young

Most people dream of fame and fortune. For some fame comes instantly while others have to go through a rigorous struggle to achieve it. Although some people become successful at a very young age, for others it may take some time. In this task, I will shed some light on the topic of being famous at a young age and whether it is a good or bad thing.

Some people become famous at a very young age. Is it a good or a bad thing?


In modern times, with the advent of social media, it is quite easy for people to become famous at a very young age. Being famous is not only associated with talent but with hard work too. Some people believe that becoming a known personality at a young age can have several repercussions while others are of the view that age does not matter and it is all about how an individual handles fame.

Being famous brings a lot of social issues along with it which can have a major impact on an individual. People may cheer you up for anything done right and then turn their back on for small mistakes done. For instance, when Justin Bieber started his music career he was instantly admired, but with time, when he started making changes in his lifestyle, there were a lot of accusations that he had to face, jeopardizing his career.

However, being famous at a young age allows you to make all the mistakes that one either ways make, learn from them and move on. A person who is able to handle being famous from a young age tends to grow as a mature adult and venture out in different directions towards the later stages. For instance, the Indian cricketers who got to be in the hall of fame from the beginning could relate to the battles and towards the end of their career, smoothly transit to other viable options.

In my personal opinion, as long as it does hamper personal growth, there is nothing wrong. However, if it impacts the talent of the individual, it is better to grow the talent perfectly, before he or she is shoved off in front of the public.

IELTS Cue Card Sample Questions # Recent Shop

Living in cities or towns, we often see many shops opening up nearby. Gone are the days when there was only one shop and the entire clan was dependant on it. We now notice the opening of multinational brands and the coming of shopping malls in countries worldwide. The world has now truly become a global village. This time, we are looking at an IELTS cue card that asks you to describe about a recent shop that opened up in your city or town.

Describe a shop that recently opened in your city/country.

You should say:
  • what its name is
  • where it is
  • who the typical customers are

and say if you have bought anything from the shop. Why/Why not?


New shops and international brands are paving their way into my country. Although India itself has got numerous outlets of international brands but they are mostly confined to metropolitan cities. In recent years, my city has seen an influx of international brands and one such company unveiled a new store recently.

It’s a new Lacoste outlet that has recently been inaugurated. With the traditional crocodile sign put on the clothing is a signature trademark and it is very easily recognisable.
The store is located in the heart of the city, right next to the cinema plaza. The store had been under construction for a while. It was only that when they put up ads in the newspaper saying “the world’s most favourite brand is now in your city” that’s when people realised, it is about time we put the rumours to bed.

The clothing company is a well known in the world and the quality of their products is second to none. It is a French company and all of their clothes are imported so majority of its customers are individuals that have selective taste in clothing or I can say it caters to a very posh crowd. The entire range of clothes is expensive but that crocodile emblem on the merchandise in itself tells a different story and is totally worth it.

Yes I did buy a shirt from the store. I always wanted one and they had an inaugural discount of extra 20 percent. From the moment I stepped inside the store, I had my eyes set up on a navy shirt with a white logo on the right pocket. It was very expensive but then again good things don’t come cheap. I have one more shirt to add to my party wear collection and when I do wear it, trust me I set fire to the rain.


I presently reside in Dehradun, the capital of Uttarakhand. Dehradun is a beautiful city and has recently become one of the cities aimed at becoming a metropolitian city. This decision has led to many changes happening in my town. We saw the coming of Ola and Uber and then several constructions, like flyovers etc. But, along with it, there has been an upsurge in the number of shops in my town.

One recent shop that opened up in the center of the town and fascinated a lot of crowds is the “The Baby Shop”. It has a three-storeyed building with an amazing infrastructure and is the first shop in our city to be open 24 * 7. It is a great shop for babies with a wide range of items available necessary for babies until 10 years of age. Right from, cradle to clothes, play pen and including toys like a fighter plane etc.

Besides children, parents expecting a child or the ones with children below 10 years often visit the place. What is more beautiful and satisfying about the shop is the easy accessibility of items and a very kind staff. It was only a few weeks back that I had to visit the shop for getting a gift for my nephew. My nephew loves clothes and toys and I bought them from “The Baby Shop” at very reasonable prices. I still remember the smile she gave me.


cradle – small bed for a baby

playpen – a portable usually collapsible enclosure in which a baby or young child may play

upsurge – a rapid or sudden rise

reasonable – fair and sensible

Sample Answer

Although I am not fond of eating out due to my healthy lifestyle but every now and then I do go out to a restaurant located in south Delhi by the Delhi university campus. The restaurant is called Echoes and it is a great place to be at. It serves different types of cuisine and their milkshakes are quite popular. It has great vibes and the crowd that visits is uni going so the menu gets updated quite regularly according to the market demands.
It’s quite spacious and is spread across a single floor. The restaurant has very upmarket feel to it and the interiors are very well done. It has various paintings hanging on its walls but the most striking feature is the Hogwarts themed lamps that hang from the ceiling of the restaurant. At night when they light up, it feels like you are sitting at Hogwarts and having your dinner. From the outside it is a bit congested but the service they provide makes up for everything else.
They serve different kinds of cuisine. The Chinese there is quite popular as it’s very delicious. They have their own versions of the popular street food which is quite famous among the college going students. The price is reasonable and they are busy almost all the times. It’s better if one calls in before they visit the place as they are fully booked and getting hold of a table especially at weekends can be quite a challenge. I was particularly impressed by their spirits collection as it is one of the best that I have seen in my country.
There are numerous reasons as to why I love this place. The ambience is great and the owner of the place is a very thoughtful person. The staffs that work there are deaf and dumb so you communicate with them through sign language or using a pen and paper. In this cruel world it is the small things that make the difference and by providing employment to such people he has surely made a positive impact in the society. Not to mention I had my first date here with my wife so yeah it’ll always be special to me.


Follow-up Questions

What is your favorite restaurant near the place that you live?

My favorite restaurant is “Dolphin”. I really like it for the food and the ambiance of the restaurant. It is that restaurant that I used to visit a lot with my friends and have made some great memories in that place. The best part about that restaurant is that they have got great service and is a perfect blend of home made food and the one prepared by cook.

What is the best restaurant you have ever eaten at?

I think the best restaurant would be “The Hub”. There are many places that I have visited and so many restaurants that I have gone to, but there is this something unique about it. They have got electric candles and even if you are going during the day, you get a feel of a candle light dinner. The food is amazing and the staff really polite.

Have you ever eaten at a restaurant abroad? What was it like?

I have never been to abroad, so I am not very sure of it. But, I have read about some restaurants of abroad. One of them is Alexander’s Steakhouse in Cupertino. It is regarded as one of the best restaurants with a person telling you patiently about the menu and making sure you have a great meal.

What do you think makes a restaurant great?

I think apart from the food, the ambiance and the service or the staff makes a restaurant great. It is good to have great food, but then the seats in which you are sitting, the lighting of the restaurant, the staff and the music the restaurant chooses to play has a very important role in making a restaurant great.

Do you prefer to eat at your parents’ house or a restaurant?

I prefer my parent’s house because no matter how great a restaurant is, nothing can replace the feeling of eating at home with your parents and siblings. The talks and the laughs, it is all so great to be replaced.

What is the worst restaurant you have eaten at?

I remember, eating at this restaurant at Puri, the name I have forgotten. But, it was looking average from outside so we just went in. When we looked at the menu, the food was expensive but we thought that it might be good so we ordered it. The food was really bad for starters but when my friend ordered for Kebab, instead of giving that they brought Fried rice. When he asked to change the order, the staff asked him to eat it because there is no other option available. Not only he had to pay, but also eat something he did not liked. The only reason we sat there eating was because there were no other restaurants and we were really hungry.

What is the strangest restaurant you have heard of?

Well, the most weird restaurant that I have ever heard of is Modern Toilet in Taipei, Taiwan. The restaurant has everything in the form of Toilet. So, you could see bowls in the form of flush, seats in the form of flush and then the ice creams in the form of shit. Sometimes, I wonder how do people even go and eat there.

How do you feel about theme restaurants?

I think theme restaurants are really great because there is so much specialty associated with them. There is nothing general and one can feel so great about it. There is a story to tell there, a reason behind everything that is placed there. I think they are the perfect paradise for tourists and travellers.

Do you prefer darker or brighter interiors for restaurants? Why?

I prefer darker interiors. I am not very sure but I think dim lights bring along with them that calmness and smoothness of candle light dinner. It calms the mind and it becomes so much more easy to listen to the other person and have a lovely conversation.

Life is nothing but a sum total of all the decisions that we take, the priorities we made. Few years back I had to make a decision, to either take up a job in a reputed company or the one which although pays more is not a very reputed one! For a long time I pondered over the thought and finally decided to go for the company that was paying more.

My goals in life were different from the ones going to the reputed company and there were loans that I had to pay and so I decided to opt for the lesser reputed company. It turned out to be actually the best decision of my life. I was able to pay back my loans faster than many other friends of mine and go for further education. While taking the decision, I had asked my father for advice.

He told me to write down the pros and cons of both the sides and then go for the ones with more pros and less of cons and then stand by it. On doing so, I did ended up making a decision and have not regret it even for a minute of my life. It was the most important decision of my life because it helped me in furthering my future than most of my friends faster.
