Colors # Speaking Section

Colors Speaking Section

Colors are everywhere and every individual his/her own tastes in colors. There are some who have a particular taste, and then there are some who like every color equally. No matter what is your opinion about color, you surely do have an opinion. Questions related to colors are even asked in the Part I of the speaking section. Let us have a look at some of the questions that could be asked in IELTS related to color.

  1. Do you have a favorite color?

Well, I really do like all the colors but shades of violet are the ones I mostly prefer.

2. Do you think colors affect our moods?

I think yes. Colors do have some effect on our moods. For example-: red usually gives that feeling of excitement or love or anger, depending on the individual. White calms our minds.

3. Can you learn anything from the color an individual likes?

Well, psychology does says that we can know about the individual from the color they like. For example, people who like purple are often considered more artistic while those who like white are termed to be more organized.

4.  Do you like the same colors as you liked in your childhood?

Well, my choice of favorite color has changed a lot many times since childhood. There was a time when I like black and then red. It is only in recent times that I have stuck with violet.

Describe your dream College/University.

You should say:

  • where the College/University is
  • what attracted you to this College/University
  • what courses are you intrested in

and explain why you feel this College/University would be a dream to attend.


Sample Answer:

The University of my dreams would surely be the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. Also previously known as Ingolstadt University. As the name itself suggests, this University is located in Munich, the capital of Germany.

The chief allure for me is the region and language. You see, I spent a significant portion of my childhood in Germany. For me, there is nothing more beautiful than the german language and especially the culture that it promotes. And I am very lucky in that aspect; I can choose to enter the german taught or English taught courses as per my preferences. 

Furthermore, this University specializes in the sciences. Besides being a science student myself, I know for a fact that few can compete with LMU’s excellence and education standards.

Likewise, another draw to this University, in particular, is its previous alumni. Namely, the 42 Nobel laureates that graduated from this very Institution. Not to mention the fact that the grounds can be dated back to 1472, which is just fascinating to think about. I can not even imagine walking the same hallowed halls as my idols!!

As for courses I am interested in, the “Batchelor of Sciences in Computer Sciences” sounds right up my alley. It is a three-year undergraduate degree course in Computer Science itself. In which I would learn about the fundamentals of computer science in theoretical, practical and application-oriented point of view. 

Thus indeed, I do truly believe this University is the perfect choice for me. It is highly ranked with a significant international student ratio. Further, the faculty is world-renowned and the results truly do speak for themselves as well. With that in mind, it also helps that the school is state-funded, meaning it has ample opportunities for scholarships. 

In the above, I have illustrated my reasons for believing LMU to be my dream university and the course I would want to avail.

IELTS Cue Card # Talk about a beautiful city

IELTS Cue Card # Talk about a beautiful city

Talk about a beautiful city
• Where it is
• How you came to know about it
• When are you planning to go there
• What you will do there


Sample Answer

There are many beautiful cities across the world. I am quite fascinated by a few European cities but the one I find most interesting is Amsterdam. It is the capital city of Netherlands and is a remarkable feat of planning and development. For a metropolitan city, it has quite laid back feel to it. The city has managed to gel in the modern world aptly while preserving its culture and heritage at the same time.
I am a well informed person when it comes to cities and my geography is pretty good too. Even though I have known about Amsterdam for a long time it’s only recently that my friend came back from there and he gave me a lot of information in detail about the city. At first, I wasn’t impressed and thought it to be like any other city but after seeing pictures on his phone, I realised that I was mistaken and promptly started searching for the city.
Well right now, I am a bit occupied with other work and studies. I’ll be free in the coming summer so that’s when I am planning to visit Amsterdam. It’ll be once in a life kind of experience and shortage of funds is something that should not bother me while, I am on the trip. I am working overtime right now and saving every last penny for the trip. As of now there are two of us planning to go and currently in conversation with a few more friends as the more the merrier. We might even go to France from there but let’s see how it goes.
It is a beautiful place and it has great infrastructure. The city is full of canals and coffee shops. What fascinates me the most is the preferred mode of transport of the locals. More than half the population uses bicycle as a mode of transport and I’ll be doing the same too. The national history museum is quite famous too and it houses some of the most lucrative pieces of artefacts mankind has ever witnessed. Since I am quite fond of clubbing and Amsterdam is the EDM (electronic dance music) capital of the world I’d try and visit as many as I can on my trip. (375 Words)
