IELTS Cue Card, Talk about an important river or lake in your country

  • -Which water body is that
  • -how do you know about it
  • -Why does it impress you so much

Sample Answer

Water bodies like rivers are of paramount importance for the survival of humans and other living organisms on this planet. Although my country has vast rivers like the holy Ganges and the mighty Brahmaputra , I’ll like to talk about the river Indus which is one of the longest rivers in Asia. I witnessed the beauty of Indus on my visit to Leh last year. Originating in the Tibetan plateau, the river runs a course through the Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir. Then it flows through the entire length of Pakistan before draining into the Arabian Sea. Going back in history, the Indus or Sindh river had a significant role in the development of the Indus valley civilization. The remains of ancient cities of Harappa and Mohenjodaro were found on the banks of this river. Indus merges with Zanskar river near a place called Nimoo , a few kilometres from Leh .The confluence point offers the most mesmerizing view which is a treat for the eyes. What is even more impressive that this river is the lifeline of people living in this otherwise arid and barren high-altitude desert. Indus remains frozen for almost a quarter of the year and locals provide ice skating facilities for the tourists. One of the locals told me that the blind Indus river dolphin is a sub-species of dolphin found only in the Indus river and is on the verge of extinction. Although Pakistan generates hydropower with the help of dams and barrages on Indus, there is none on the Indian side. In the end, I’d like to say that It’s our duty to conserve our precious water resources for the sustenance of life on the Earth and for the betterment of future generations.(290 Words)

India is known for star studded film industry called Bollywood . Although, there are various talented actors excelling in action, romantic or drama movies, Akshay Kumar has a special place in comedy roles. He has been in the industry for almost three decades doing all kinds of roles, but since last 10 years he has made a name for himself in the comedy circle. I became his diehard fan after watching the movie “Singh is king.” It is one of those movies which can be seen again and again without getting bored. Apart from having an excellent sense of humor, he is a complete disciplinarian as far as his lifestyle and physical fitness is concerned. Millions of young men and women have gained inspiration from his strict exercise regime and teetotaler habits. He has a huge fan following because of his contributions to charity of soldiers of my country.

    • Who is he/ she
    • How do you know him / her
    • Do you like him / her

Sample Answer :

I’ve come across different people in my life. Some of them are expressive and loquacious while others like to keep their thoughts within themselves. Today I, d like to talk about the most talkative person I know who happens to be my cute five-year-old niece. Her name is Meher and she is such a chatterbox that in her company, no other form of entertainment is needed. She speaks to me on the phone each day for almost an hour. Her stories revolve just around everything -what she has worn, what she did in her school, a new animation movie that she has seen and what she would like to receive as her birthday present etc. Speaking to her not only makes me forget all my worries but also takes me back into my carefree childhood days. Sometimes I just wonder why we lose our innocence and spark when we grow up. Having said that, I just want to enjoy the time I get to spend with her. I wait eagerly for her vacations when she can come and spend few days with me. She lightens up not just my home but also my neighborhood with her smile, giggles and a captivating personality.
