Sample Answer

Sports and fitness activities play an important role in everyone’s lives. Apart from keeping a person fit and healthy, one can also excel at these to gain name and fame. All of us follow sportsmen and athletes that play different sports, and we also have personal favorites among them.

I also follow a sportsperson whom I admire and respect the most. He is Mr. Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar, a very well-known and esteemed ex-cricketer of the Indian national team. He is considered to be a living legend and one of the greatest batsmen of all times. He is the only player who has scored a hundred centuries in his international playing career.

Known as the little master, he started his international cricket career at the age of 16. He surprised everyone by scoring his first century in a test match against Pakistan when not many people knew about the talent he possessed. After that, he did not stop and made many records. He has since then received many awards and accolades not only for his exceptional playing capabilities but also for his good conduct on and off the playing field. Moreover, He has received the Arjuna Award, the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna, the Padma Shri, and the Padma Vibhushan Award.

A very simple, down to earth person, he is also very kind hearted and honest. He has played cricket in all three formats namely test matches, one-day matches, and twenty over matches. He has recently retired from his cricketing career and is now appointed as a Member of Parliament. I admire his patience, dedication, and constant aspiration to improve as an individual. He has always played with the utmost spirit of sportsmanship and I respect him for it.

IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card:

Describe a time when you were encouraged by other people.

  • Where and when did this happen?
  • Who gave you encouragement?
  • What did you do?
Sample Answer

Motivation and encouragement are two key factors for success. They can boost one’s morale and self-esteem. I have been encouraged by my near and dear ones whenever I undertake a new task or responsibility. One such memorable incident was when I had to appear for a job interview after clearing my graduate degree. As it was my first job interview, I was highly nervous and scared of possible rejection. While getting ready in the morning my mother noticed me sweating and called me to sit down and talk to the elders of the family. They sat down with me and spoke to me about my preparation for the interview.

I listened to everyone with enthusiasm as they told me their interview experiences. They started telling me ways to be confident and be sure of myself. I was told that I had many good qualities and skill sets that were important for the job. Such kind words motivated me and I could definitely feel the exciting surge of adrenaline rushing through my nerves. They all gave me positive thoughts and urged me to go for the interview with their encouraging statements.

I then went ahead for the interview and after half an hour of a test and tough questions, I was cleared for the position. I felt the change of my state from being nervous to feeling confident due to the encouragement that my family gave me. I went back home and thanked everyone with the wonderful news of my selection. Since then, I always go and talk to them whenever I feel the need for their supporting words.

IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card: Describe a time when you arrived very early for an interview

IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card:

Describe a time when you arrived very early for an interview.

  • What was the occasion?
  • Where did it take place?
  • What did you experience?
Sample Answer

Punctuality is a very prominent character trait and is very necessary for making a lasting impression. I always try my best to reach everywhere on the notified time. This gives an advantage in every situation as I have made a habit of being punctual. I’ll talk about an incident wherein I had an appointment for a job interview.  I was very nervous and in that state of mind I ended up reaching an hour before the interview time.

Even though I was early, I went in and gave my resume to the receptionist. I was shown into the waiting hall and the interviewer came in. She seemed to be a polite lady and asked me the reason behind my early arrival. I was embarrassed and made an awkward excuse along with an apology. She accepted and advised me to wait until the designated time.

I patiently sat until the interview time and spoke to the existing employees who came by. They gave me more details about the processes and the company profile. I became more aware and these details helped me to prepare for the interview in a better manner.

I finally rethought my line of answers and confidently gave the interview. I was cleared for the position and then I asked the interviewer about other important issues such as the salary and leaves. The lady praised my foresight and attentiveness and cleared all my doubts. Even though arriving for the interview before time was unintended but it turned out to be a beneficial experience for me at the end of the day.

  • what development is it?
  • where is it located?
  • What are its features and benefits?
  • How often do you visit it?
Sample Answer

I live in Dehradun, the capital of Uttarakhand state. It is a prominent city in the region and is the home to many markets, complexes, and offices amongst other buildings. The most recent development in the city is the Promenade shopping complex which is the largest shopping mall in the city. It is located in the center of the city near the clock tower.

A huge and marvelous building with an all-glass front, it is splendid to look at. It is a five storey building with two extra floors dedicated to the parking space in the basement. It has many large showrooms occupied by different brands. Each floor has small shops, confectionaries and food vendors in the central area and a dedicated food court on the top floor. The place has a vibrant mix of colors with the ambient background lighting and other subtle décor materials.

It is a great place for an outing and offers a comfortable and eventful visiting experience. Besides the shops and showrooms the complex houses a cinema hall, a children’s playing area, and other modern amenities blended into the building. The staff is very nice and helpful, and the brands have all the latest products available. I have been to it many times with family and friends, and have enjoyed my visits thoroughly. I visit this complex mostly on the weekends for watching movies, shopping or having lunch in any cafe over there.
