IELTS CUE CARD # MODERN TECHNOLOGY YOU OWN, IELTS DEHRADUN

Sample Answer :

I’m a gadget freak and I personally enjoy buying and collecting several pieces of modern technology and electronic gadgets that I often use and amongst all of them, I would like to talk about my laptop. I own a MacBook Air which is manufactured by Apple Inc. The laptop has an amazing  configuration and it supports most of the latest software. It came with its upgraded IOS operating system and it was a bit expensive for me to buy but I can say that it was definitely worth it. I bought it approximately a year ago when I replaced my old Dell laptop with this new one.

It is used for a variety of official purposes as well as personal use. I use the internet to find information for several projects, communicate with my friends, listen to music using this laptop. I sometimes prepare some documents and play games in it as well. This laptop serves as a source of entertainment too. In fact, I use my laptop more frequently than any other electronic device I have including my laptop.

I’ve been using laptop for more than 10 years now. Since the technology changes with every passing days and the use of latest software which demands faster performances, we need to upgrade our computers and laptops very regularly to ensure good performance, I replaced my old laptop with this new one for the same reason.

As I have previously mentioned, I use this laptop for a list of reasons like sorting and writing documents, to keep in contact with my friends, maintain my blogs, watch movies, listen to music and for many other important purposes. It has definitely become an unavoidable technology for me that I use almost every day.

IELTS CUE CARD #A speech that somebody delivered and you heard IELTS BAND7 DEHRADUN

Sample Answer :

Speeches have always been a fun event to me.  I was particularly interested in public speaking since childhood.  I used to listen to lot of speeches on the radio and television. Speaking to a huge crowd requires lot of self-confidence. I remember lot of good speeches that I’ve heard in my life. Also I can recall some really bad speeches.

I wish to talk about one specific speech given to us at the national AIESEC conference by a UN Indian Ambassador. The speech was interesting, brief and very informative.

The speech was given by at the opening ceremony of the conference. He was giving a speech to brief us about the new sustainable development goals designed in the UN for the betterment of the world. He has been a part of the Indian panel that is associated with the development of the nation. He has been working with the UN from the last 5 years. He began his journey as a former volunteer from the IIT Delhi cell. He also inspired us to work for the society and his speech kept me awestruck. I understood the importance for empathy.

His speeches included lot of breath taking examples and view from different walks of people. He told us various stories of compassion and empathy. He had made a real effort to prepare a good speech that was funny, well-researched, engaging and genuinely heart-touching.  For example, he made us play this amazing ball game ice breaker, which helped  a lot to understand the various representatives better. It was a great way to ‘break the ice’ and involve everyone, and the results were hilarious.

I think the speech was outstanding as it involved everyone, shared funny (but not too private) stories. It was also not too long!  It held interest, and was appropriate for the us to engage.

The speech gave an insight on what effective communication can do and how it can help interact with people in a positive way.

IELTS Speaking # Describe someone who learned a foreign language?

IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card

Describe someone who learned a foreign language?

  • Who this person is?
  • Which language did he/she learn?
  • How did he/she learn it?

And explain what you think about this language and its benefits.

Sample Answer

In this swiftly advancing time, being bilingual or multilingual has become mandatory. Someone who just knows their mother tongue faces a lot of challenges mainly in their professional lives. This cue card topic brings to my mind a colleague who learned French in order to get better placement opportunities abroad. I remember making fun of him for joining an Institute to learn a foreign language. It was later when a job preferred candidates who were multilingual that I realized the significance of learning a second language. 

 

Apart from English, French is a widely used language for international communication. My friend, Saumya received an offer letter of a multinational company in Canada and learning French proved an asset for her career.

 

Learning a new language enriches the mind and helps us interact with foreign natives, both personally and professionally. Recently at a wedding ceremony, I met Saumya and she told me about her professional achievements after learning a foreign language. I was surprised to look at her talking over the phone so fluently in French to her work colleagues back in Canada. She even told me about her plan to learn Spanish in the near future. 

 

From my point of view, being multilingual is really beneficial when it comes to our future. Taking Saumya’s example, she got the opportunity to travel across the world and attend international conferences mainly because of her command over a second language. I personally admire the French people mainly for eloquence with which they speak, the sophistication with which they carry themselves and a sense of nobility that they possess. Being an internationally recognized language, French has numerous advantages. More importantly, not only French but learning any second language will always be fruitful.

IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card # Talk about a cologne you use?

IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card

Talk about a cologne you use?

  • Which one it is?
  • How often you use it?
  • Is it necessary to use on a daily basis?

And explain why do you use it?

Sample Answer

Since the dawn of civilization, men and women have been applying perfumes, essential oils and colognes. As different individuals have diverse choices when it comes to food, clothes, opinions, similar is the case with perfumes. It is said that an individual’s fragrance plays a crucial part in his/her identity and is used as a symbol of an evolved and refined society. My all-time favorite cologne is Bloom by Gucci mainly because I prefer my fragrance to be sweet and fresh rather than strong because of my perfume intolerance to bold fragrances. One gets the full force of the white flower bouquet with a tint of coolness after applying it.   

 

As Gucci Bloom is an exotic and expensive perfumes, I don’t wear it on a regular basis. I don’t like to spend a fortune for just a perfume, so for everyday use, I go with Victoria Secret’s mist collection as they aren’t that heavy on the pocket. More importantly they last long even during humid weather conditions of my country.  

 

Fragrance is like an accessory and many people even today are unaware of its benefits. Perfumes tend to relieve stress, it is also used to make a statement and show our unique personality. Perfumes evokes memories as well when a particular fragrance or a signature scent reminds us of someone. Depending on one’s personal taste, you can choose from the variety of colognes available in the market like fruity, musky, floral or oriental

 

Personally, I think no one would want to smell foul and sit beside someone with an unpleasant odor. To be socially acceptable, apart from staying hygienic and clean, people wear colognes when they step out of their houses. As perfume also build self-confidence, we wear it to complete our outfit and to be more attractive especially for important occasions.

DIFFICULT WORDS-  

  • EXOTIC- originating from a distant foreign country
  • ORIENTAL- characteristic of countries of the East, especially East Asia
  • EVOLVED- develop gradually
