well dressed IELTS Band7

SAMPLE ANSWER 1

It was during my stint at a major IT company few years back that I met a woman who I still remember as one of the well dressed out of all. She was my senior at the office and when everyone else was tensed about silly things she made sure that she carried herself with amazing awe.

She would usually wear Indian formals to the office and her eyes always carried the Kohl which made her so much more approachable. There were although times when she wore Western but she made sure that it was always in accordance to the office environment. Her hair used to be properly done and her shoes were never in a fit of rage with her legs.

I remember on asking her why she enforces everyone to dress well. On that, she answered, that no matter what is going on if you don’t dress well for the situation, you lose it by 50% straight. Later in life, I realized she was right.


SAMPLE ANSWER 2

Out of many that I have met during my professional days, I clearly remember my senior at a company as the most well-dressed person. When I was a System Engineer at the office, he was around ten years senior to me and I would often reach out to him for help on a business perspective.

He had been working on many technologies and although he could not answer every silly question of mine, he made sure that I reach to the answer. He would always wear formals to office, although casuals were allowed. His smile I would say was the most striking thing about his personality.

No matter how many big issues came he dealt with them in the most calm manner  he could do. I recollect asking him why he never wore casuals to office when it is allowed. On that, he answered that when you dress well, you almost win the fight and then all that is required is the work, which you already know.

Sample Answer

Childhood is a time of blissful experiences for everyone. The dreams are huge and every child tends to find happiness in small things and incidents. Everyone has their own childhood memories and among them, some are pleasant while a few are sad. I also have various childhood memories and I would like to talk about the one related to my first day at school.

I was about 4 years old when I got admission to a local school. This was very exciting as I was fascinated by the new place full of people and large buildings. When my father announced that I would start attending school from the next march, I was elated.

I started imagining what my school and my classes would look like, and how many friends would I make. Finally, the day came and my parents came to drop me off to school. Till that day, I had seen it only from outside, and after taking my first steps into the school campus, I was anxious and felt nervous.

I was unsure of what would follow, and of the things, I was supposed to do. Very soon a teacher came and introduced herself while handing me with my books and stationery. I felt comfortable and went along with her to my assigned classroom. The classroom was huge and airy, with a lot of children occupying the desks. I was introduced to the class and all the children warmed up to me and I found it very easy to settle in with the class. It was an exhilarating experience, but my initial nervousness had died down to make way for happiness and I started to enjoy going to school in no time.

IELTS Cue Card # Describe an impressive advertisement you remember well

IELTS Speaking Cue Card

Describe an impressive advertisement you remember well.
You should say:

  • When and where you saw it?
  • What was advertised?
  • What were the contents of the advertisements?

and explain why you remember it well.

IELTS CUE CARD # DESCRIBE AN IMPRESSIVE ADVERTISEMENT YOU REMEMBER WELL. Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in dehradun

SAMPLE ANSWER-

There are several advertisements we come across while watching television or surfing the internet.. I used to either find advertisement monotonous due to which I didn’t paid much attention to them. Lately, while watching videos on YouTube, a Vicks advertisement grabbed my attention. It was a short story about a transgender woman activist and her adopted daughter.

Vicks is a P&G owned cold and cough brand, which broadcasted a short story on ‘Touch of Care’. The advertisement gave a strong message on adoption and transgender rights. The video commences with a daughter and her transgender mother on their way to the boarding school, recounting all the memories that they’ve cherished together so far. Though her mother wanted her to become a doctor, her daughter reveals her ambition of becoming a lawyer.

The contents of this short digital film were mainly about a close connection between a daughter and mother even though the society opposed to this pure relationship. Gayatri, the adopted daughter wanted to become a lawyer and fight against the unfair legal treatment to transgender in India. The orphan girl innocently questions the society about why her mother is denied fundamental rights if everyone gets this privilege. This question by a naïve child is an eye-opener for the society we live in.

I cannot forget about this particular advertisement mainly because of the stigma shown in it. Even after the Supreme Court passed a law for the transgender, these people continue to face bias and humiliation in the Indian society. In the advertisement which lasted for nearly two minutes, the campaign was successful enough to deliver a powerful moral.

Cue card: A language lesson you enjoyed

IELTS Cue Card Talk about a language lesson you enjoyed

Talk about a language lesson you enjoyed
You should say:

  • When it was?
  • What it was about?
  • What you did in the lesson?
  • And explain why you enjoyed this lesson.

A language lesson you enjoyed

Sample Answer

I’ve always had a deep fascination with languages. It certainly stems from the skills of my school teachers who made our lessons memorable.  Today, I’m going to talk about a language lesson I loved.

I was in 8th class. Our school provided classes in many foreign languages like German, French, Japanese and Italian etc. I opted for Japanese because my father recommended it to me. My first Japanese lesson was so much fun that I still remember almost everything about it. When our teacher entered the class, she greeted us in Japanese. She didn’t translate it in English or our local language. Initially, we were puzzled but then she drew the sun and two kids on the blackboard. We understood the meaning and all of us repeated the greeting after her. Then, the teacher opened a big box in which she had kept many things like chocolates, cold drinks, tea and a bottle of milk etc.

She started taking them out of the box one by one. She was saying the name of each item in Japanese and we were listening to her and repeating after her. Later on, the teacher just showed us the objects and we were supposed to recall their names. Everyone was actively participating in the lesson. In the next stage of the lesson, the teacher taught us how to order milk, tea or coffee in a Japanese café. She divided us into two groups. Some of us became customers while others became waiters. We practiced all the words that we learned in the lesson in a very interactive way.

Not only me but all my classmates enjoyed the lesson. I found it very interesting because of the way it was delivered. The teacher created a friendly and stimulating learning environment. Its pace was also perfect for our age group. If we hadn’t been involved in the lesson, it would have been a boring lesson. All in all, I can say that this first-class boosted our confidence immensely and motivated us to learn Japanese.

Another Similar Cue Card

Describe a thing you did to learn another language.

  • Which language did you learn?
  • What was that thing, you did to learn the language?
  • How did it help you and how you felt?

And do you recommend that thing for every language?

SAMPLE ANSWER TWO-

Language is among the greatest inventions of mankind. Just imagining a world without languages seems to bring chaos and haphazardness all around. Social order and stability is ensured by this medium of communication. If we just observe our past, it is wondrous to note that we learnt our mother tongue without any formal medium of instruction. It is an automatic natural process set in motion by environment. Although I never intended to become a philologist, but I had this inertia for different words and meanings. I knew English well and I had this penchant for Spanish. So, in my college days, I decided to learn Spanish.

I joined a language academy, where they take up a language from the very basics. With appropriate syntax, pronunciation and meaning understanding of most common Spanish words in academy, I built my fundamentals strong. Thereafter, a stage of stagnation arrived in my progress and I was not improving my spoken Spanish, in particular. It was then, when I decided to stay in a Spanish colony in our city, for few months. Getting surrounded by Spanish diaspora all the time, listening to the language Spanish only whenever a word is spoken and interacting in Spanish only, were the true game changers.

This idea of living among Spanish people was an instantaneous hit. Within a span of just three months, I was conversing in Spanish without any great efforts. To add to it, I even grasped the uncommon classical Spanish vocabulary. The result of the uniform harmony with the Spanish language in my overall environment, while living in Spanish people, was very fruitful. The shopkeepers and watchman in that colony were Spanish too, which necessitated me to even think in Spanish. I felt extremely happy witnessing my gradual but consistent improvement in Spanish.

I would like to recommend my test and trial approach with the learners of any language. Staying in airs stuffed with a particular language all around you, automatically brings you in sync with that. No doubt, academy is something mandatory, but apart from that, my idea for learning a language is very effective, especially the spoken one.

STRONG WORDS
Word Meaning
Penchant special bent/liking: My friend has the penchant for old classic movies.
Haphazard disorderly: students in college generally keep their room haphazard.
Diaspora scattered population with origin somewhere else: America is truly cosmopolitan in a sense, to have diaspora from so many nations
Follow-up Questions

Q. 1 Is learning a new language difficult after an age?

Sample answer: I can’t answer this with confirmation without actual evidences. Definitely, after an age learning appetite decreases to some extent. Learning a new language might not sound as exciting and hence motivating to a grown up man as to a young boy. This lack of interest, apart from the work pressures faced by an adult may hinder his learning process.

Q. 2 What factors make a language interesting to learn?

Sample answer: It is the accent, smoothness, tone and pitch primarily, which creates impression for a language. Apart from them, glory and status of the nation, to which a language belongs, also generates fan following. Influence of a language created by its major presence all over the globe is a big influence.

Q. 3 Can deepest emotions be conveyed by a language?

Sample answer: I would say speech itself comes with a limitation. Use of any language can definitely easen the process of emotions’ description, as done in poems, plays and other fiction. But, I still believe that language do not have the absolute adequacy to display all the emotions, in complete.

Q. 4 What are the advantages of learning a new language?

Sample answer: Learning anything new, in itself is a fun process. Language learning comes with the spoken, written, hearing and speaking tasks involved in it, therefore it further broadens our pleasurable experience. It is always an advantage staying in a country, if we are averse with its native language. This brings a sense of assimilation in an earlier differently looking ethnicity. It also enriches our experience of different civilizations and cultures.
