leisure time IELTS Cue Card Dehradun

Sample Answer

My hometown Dehradun is a small but vibrant city. Locals have access to a wide range of entertainment facilities such as sports centers, shopping malls and cinemas etc. Today, I’m going to talk about a very popular place which is visited by thousands of people every day.

It’s a huge shopping complex called the Pacific Mall. It was opened to the public in 2015. The building is located in a posh area of Dehradun. Young adults normally use their own mode of transport like car, bike or scooter to reach there. Some families prefer public transport as parking is quite expensive in the complex.

This shopping center is equipped with a 4-screen cinema, lots of branded shops, multicultural food courts and children’s play areas.  Concerts, music and dance competitions are also organized regularly. Depending upon the interest and the purpose of visiting the mall, people can decide what they wish to do in the complex. They can watch the latest films, enjoy delicious food from China, Thailand and Italy or participate in cultural programs. Shoppers can also get a fabulous shopping experience. Children too can have a lot of fun in designated play areas.

Another special feature of this place is that people can meet renowned writers, musicians and chefs on gazetted holidays like 15th August, 2nd October and 26th January and festivals. They can even give suggestions about who should be invited in the future. The public is duly informed about the upcoming events through adverts in local newspapers. Certainly, all these facilities make it an ideal place for all age groups. It’s is worth visiting.

IELTS Speaking cue card: 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
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 in two groups. Some of us became customers while others became waiters. We practised 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.

IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # English Lesson

IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # English Lesson

Learning is always more fun when someone teaches it brilliantly. Often students who stop studying are the ones who are not able to either connect with the teacher or the way of teaching. This time we are looking at a cue card that talks about an English lesson that the student enjoyed.
Talk about an English lesson you enjoyed. You should say –

  • who gave the lecture?
  • when did you attend?
  • where did you attend?

also, explain, why do you think the lecture was enjoyable?

SAMPLE ANSWER ONE

School days have been a packet of good and bad memories for me. There were so many subjects and I did not enjoy studying all of them. My favorite was English. I liked the stories and the poems, the characters and how things evolved in them. But, the first time that I understood the joy of learning English was when Swatantra sir taught us. He was our English teacher in class 10th and has been one of the best teachers.

In one of his lectures, he asked us to become the characters of the chapter and everyone had a role to play in it. Coming on stage was very difficult for all of us and then saying those lines, even more. When some of us learned the lines of the chapter, he taught us the art of feeling and expressions.

The lecture is still imprinted in not only my mind but the minds of many others because it taught us that learning has to be fun and it is not about being able to answer those questions in exams but also about understanding the concepts. One of the main reasons it was enjoyable was because it involved all of us.

SAMPLE ANSWER TWO

The corporate world is amazing and just like any other world, the initial years are the best years of it. When I joined a corporate company in my country, they provided us with the initial 6 months of training. In those training days, we were not only taught the technology part but also the soft skills. In one of the lectures, a woman came into our room and asked what we thought of her.

To all our surprise, we had no answers and she went on to say that often we do not express ourselves in order to avoid offending other people. Moving on, she divided our entire class into four parts and held a quiz. We had grammar quiz, vocabulary quiz, authors quiz and so much more. When the session got completed, she said, well this all that I had to teach you.

The reason I enjoyed the lecture was that we could find out what we already know. There was more of learning than repeating. For example, most of us knew what noun is and so there was no point in her teaching that. It was this smartness of her that really made a mark on me. More importantly, we all were starting our careers, the initial years and she said when she was about to leave, work hard but do not forget to enjoy life. She taught us self-confidence and the true way of leading life.

IELTS cue card: A TV documentary you watched

IELTS cue card: A TV documentary you watched

Describe a TV documentary you watched that was particularly interesting.
You should say
• What the documentary was about
• Why you decided to watch it
• What you learnt during the documentary
And explain why the TV documentary was particularly interesting.

Sample Answer

I recently watched an amazing documentary that left a lasting impression on my mind. It’s called Kurt Cobain – Montage of Heck.
It is based on the real life story of the legendary musician and the lead guitarist of the band, Nirvana. The documentary is well-versed and depicts various aspects of his life. It describes his struggle against depression and drug addiction. It is heartbreaking to see his downfall which eventually led to his death at the age of 27. The documentary was released 2 decades after his suicide.
Kurt Cobain is one of my favorite musicians. I came across the documentary while reading an article that was published about him. The reviews were quite applauding and thoughtful. The critics praised the movie to their heart’s content. I was really impressed. So, I decided to watch it.
The documentary is an inspiration for the entire young generation today. It depicts the journey of a young talented musician who becomes addicted to drugs and eventually ends his life. The movie shows the struggle of an individual suffering from mental illness and his fight to overcome the trauma. Apart from this several personal audio recording and juvenilia are also added in the movie.
The documentary doesn’t only describe the man as a rock and roll saga and typical doomed artist but also gives an insight into his artistic expressions and his infamous relationship with his wife, Courtney Love. It taught me that the choice to be successful or unsuccessful lies only and only in my hands and as an individual one has to learn to differentiate as to what is preferable or not preferable for them as they grow up. Overall, it was an overwhelming documentary. I will surely recommend it to everyone.
