You should say:

  • where this place is

Sample Answer:

During my stay in London, I went out with my friends to the city of Bath. Bath is a city in the county of Somerset, England. It is 97 miles (156 km) west of London.
I had always read about the city and its hot water springs, which was discovered in 836 BC by the British king Bladud. The city is famous for Roman Bath, a well preserved Roman site for public bathing, which was built in c AD 60 and for its Georgian architecture….. Royal Crescent, Circus, Pump Room and Assembly Room. Around the 18th century the city became fashion capital of England. Jane Austen the famous English novelist lived there in the early 19th century.
On our first day, we went around the city on foot saw the Royal Crescent, Victoria Garden The Circus, Bath Abbey, went to the Saracens Head a local pub (where Charles Dicken reputedly lived) had a few Guinness talked to the locals, went to Club XL. The following day, we saw the museum, the Pump House and tour the guided bus tour of the city of bath and the spectacular skyline tour and then around the evening we saw the rugby match between the teams of Bath and Bristol.
I really liked the city for its history, which was largely influenced by Roman’s, hot springs, Georgian architecture, natural beauty and for its stint with Jane Austin and Charles Dickens. (236 Words.)

SAMPLE ANSWER

I had always wanted to do something that I was passionate about. However, the real trouble began when I simply did not knew my passions. So, I took an year out to figure out what really makes me go gaga. In the year out, I realized that I love writing and so started a blog of mine about the travel experiences I was having. With that going on roll, there were certain things the game of blogging told me. Like, you need to be a good photographer as well if you are thinking of planning a travel blog. It just gives you so much more space.

So, I wish to study photography in near time. There have been few universities that I looked on like the University of California and the JJ school of applied arts. They offer some really nice courses and the faculties tend to be really good. Being a good photographer helps in implementing the right thing for the blog. There are times when you get the content looking at the picture. So, when you don’t know the context of the picture you cannot justify the picture.

Even more, when working on a business there is so much more involved in it. One has to learn how to meet deadlines and an intensive course in a good university, just gives  you the right context. With photography, I think I will be able to take the blog to the next level. Bringing in video content like interviews or simply the real true mundane life and writing content to say what the picture could not.

IELTS Cue Card # Practical Skill

Describe a practical skill that you have –

  • What is the skill?
  • How often you use it?
  • Who taught it to you?

and explain how it helps you in your daily life.

Sample Answer One

I believe that typing on a computer is the one practical skill that has helped me a lot in the career. I have chosen computer and even in the daily things that I do. My father got us a computer when we were very young and he taught us to type using our both hands. There used to be times when he would dictate me the lessons so that I could understand the lesson as well as improve my typing speed.

There were times, when I would just type for a novel or may be an article in my summer holidays. I might not be the world record holder for the fastest typing but I think I type pretty fast, with minimal errors. Being a software engineer, I think, it is really important for me to be able to type fast. I am not worried about typing the code, but as soon as the code comes to my mind, I go about and type it. This practical skill makes coding all the more fun. Even more, being a freelance blogger, there are times when I have to juggle between both my jobs. It is because of my typing speed that I am able to put down more articles giving me room for some relaxation.

I can definitely say, that typing is that one thing that has actually helped in my life, be it in the IT field or the freelancing thing. It is because of a good typing speed that I am not frustrated over the wrong stuff that gets put up in the computer, the only thing that I need to worry is my work.

 


Sample Answer Two
We are living in digital world and the one thing I believe has truly helped in leading life is my knowledge of the office suite. So, be it Macintosh or Windows, I am pretty good at the office suite of Microsoft. There are times when I need to prepare presentation on certain things and then days when I need to prepare some other kinds of documents. When that happens, it never is a big deal for me.

I remember my father got us a computer when we were young and my mother was doing a course on Computer Science, so she was learning things like Unix, Powerpoint, Word, C, C++ and out of other languages she taught us very well how to make presentations and documents. So, at the age of 10 or 12 I could make pretty good presentations and that with time has improved.

I think it has truly been very helpful, taken in consideration my career in a software company where you need to make presentations or edit some documents every now and then. Having the skills to make presentations has allowed me to make formal presentations right from the start of my career. It has even helped me get lot of opportunities which might have been skipped other wise.

IELTS Cue Card # Important Letter

There are so many times when instead of choosing a direct face to face conversation, we choose letter or emails to express ourselves. Some of them are the

Describe an important letter you wrote to someone.

You should say:

  • When you wrote it
  • Whom you wrote it to
  • What it was about

And explain why it was an important letter.

Sample Answer One

There have been many letters that I have written which too an extent have shaped my life but I remember writing a letter to a friend I drifted apart after some misunderstandings. For a very long time, I wanted to know the reasons behind the things that happened in between us and why we tried to do the things that we did.
It was almost frustrating and annoying and after three years I gathered all the courage and wrote to him.

I told him about how I felt about our relation and what irritated me and how I felt after it all was over. The entire journey of three years, I penned it down, hoping for some explanation on his behalf as to why he did what he did. But, for my shock or surprise, he simply told me that he has forgotten everything and even if something had happen in the past, it is all over and there is no specific reason behind it.

I was shattered in the beginning because I truly had to think a lot before I could just pen down everything and instead of giving me any explanation he simply sided away. The reason the letter was very important for me because I could finally move on with my life and there were so many things that I learnt. One of them being that there is no point being silent in a relation and then you have to make sure that the first person to respect you and love you is you and you are responsible for whatever happens to you.

I believe had I not written the letter, I wont have ever gathered the will power to move on with my life and make something good out of it.


Sample Answer Two

There have been so many letters that I have written in my life, both at personal and professional level. But, the one letter that I regard as truly important for me and the one which actually helped me shape my career is my resignation letter.

I remember working for a multi national company for about a year and it was during that time that I realized that this job is not giving me any fun and excitement to live about. There is a fixed salary that I get and there is nothing much more than that. No targets to meet and nothing exciting.

There is no work pressure and the feeling of getting things done, because you are working as a team and it is more about collective, so neither the praise nor the punishment comes to individual and I think in some ways it takes away the individuality from the person.

The reason the letter is very important for me is because I had to think lot of times and it was after I had written around 3 resignation letters that I finally decided that I want to do something else with my life. It was a great experience in that company but what was great was to be able to end the journey at the right time. So, I had to fight with my friends and family and the people who care for me the most and then do something that is best for me.

It was after that letter that I realized that I do have lot of courage and can do whatever I want to in my life.
