Sample Answer

Today, I’m going to tell you about an important message that I received last week. It was Friday afternoon. I was listening to my favourite song. Suddenly, a message popped up on my phone. It said: Urgent – Due to novel COVID-19 outbreak, all IELTS examinations across India have been cancelled. The information was sent by IDP: IELTS Australia, an organization which develops and manages IELTS exams in India and many parts of the world.

My IELTS test was scheduled the next day i.e. Saturday, the 21st March. At first, I couldn’t believe it because receiving fake news is quite common these days. Also, the cancellation came at very short notice, just few hours prior to the planned time.

IELTS is an expensive test. I’d paid the full fee of the test and it is non-refundable. Considering all these factors, it became necessary for me to check the authenticity of the message. I dialled the toll free help line number of IDP. The line was terribly busy. After trying for over 20 minutes, someone answered my phone and confirmed that the message was real.

I’ve been preparing for this exam for quite a while and I was eagerly looking forward to performing well in the main test. This sudden cancellation was very upsetting. I was cursing the COVID-19 pandemic for spoiling my plans. Sadly, there was no choice at all except waiting for the new date.

The day after, the government of India imposed a 21-day nationwide lockdown, as a preventive measure to control the spread of the coronavirus. It was then when I realized just how critical the situation was; I wasn’t the only one affected. Several other key exams were cancelled or postponed. This consoled me.

Now, I am at home doing my duty to remain fit and healthy, be hygienic and make the most of these rather unfortunate circumstances.

Sample Answer

Changes are an integral part of our life. Today, I’m going to talk about a recent change that I brought about in my life.
I am pursuing a 4-year diploma in hotel management. It’s is a full-time course which includes a lot of lectures and practical work. Spending long hours in college, part-time work, and project work in the library, not to mention other responsibilities – all of them started taking their toll on me. I became stressed, sleep deprived and cranky. I was generally frustrated, short-tempered and unhappy.

My friends posed an intervention and told me they were worried for me, this statement really awakened me. I thought I could handle the stress but seeing them suffer the side effects of my workaholism, I decided to do something about it.

I joined yoga classes in the morning. Initially, I felt that this might be a waste of time but I was proven wrong when my classmates said I looked happier and refreshed. I myself noticed a change in my aura and productivity.

This change redefined my outlook on things, I noticed that little things do in fact matter. In today’s fast-paced world, we have forgotten the true essence of life. We should keep on making small experimental changes in our life. They give it a splash of colour. All in all, this change had a positive impact on me and my loved ones. I will definitely continue to do yoga no matter where I go.

Describe something you taught to your friend/relative
You should say:

  • what you taught him/her
  • when it was
  • how long it was for
  • and explain how you felt about it

Sample answer

I enjoy teaching and imparting my knowledge with others. Today, I’m going to talk about a time when I taught mathematics to one of my friends.

It’s been quite long, around 10 years. I was pursuing my Bachelor’s from Kurukshetra University. The course comprised three majors: mathematics, science and computer science. Mathematics was a challenging subject. Despite that I obtained excellent grades in mathematics. Sadly, my close friend, Rohit, didn’t get good grades in his first semester exams.  He was unable to understand the fundamentals of calculus and trigonometry. He asked me if I could help him. I willingly agreed.

I started teaching him in the evening. Initially, nothing seemed to move forward as Rohit didn’t have a strong foundation in maths. But, his willingness to learn kept us going. We kept on trying and after a lot of hard work for months, I could see a change in his level.

Overall, I loved sharing my knowledge with Rohit. This help wasn’t out of obligation but out of true friendship to boost his confidence and help him develop his mathematical skills. Being a student, teaching him was a tough task for me as well. At times I had to come up with a new idea to make him understand the question. He always gave his 100% and we managed to successfully clear all mathematics exams together. It was an achievement for both of us, and I will never regret helping a friend in need.

IELTS Speaking cue card: A goal you achieved

IELTS Speaking Cue Card: A goal you achieved

Describe a goal you achieved which was set by yourself. You should say

  • What the goal was
  • When you set it
  • Why you set it
  • And explain what you did to achieve the goal.

SAMPLE ANSWER

Goals play an indispensable role in our life. Here, I’d like to talk about a time when I set the goal of reducing my social media usage.

In general, I’m not very active on Facebook, Instragram and other social platforms. But, last year during winter vacations I started spending a considerable amount of time on Facebook. Long discussions with friends about the latest Hollywood movies, reality shows and celebrities became a daily routine.

Initially, it was full of fun and I didn’t think that it could affect my studies. Within 4 weeks, however, the whole situation changed. My performance in the preliminary exams conducted after the holidays was very poor. I failed in 2 subjects: physics and mathematics.

The reason was obvious to me. The holidays that were meant for final exam preparation were wasted in social networking and chats. Certainly, if I’d studied hard, this wouldn’t have happened. On the way to home, a big dilemma prevailed over me: Should I show the report card to my parents or not? Despite knowing that it was wrong, I chose to hide the result. Had they seen it, they would’ve been very disappointed. That day I set the goal of decreasing my social media time and study well. 

To achieve my goal, the first thing I did was to deactivate my Facebook account temporarily. Setting up a timetable was the next phase of the plan. For months together, I chased the lost time. In the end, the outcome was positive – I passed the final exams with excellent grades. Even though it may seem small, it was a big goal for a 14-year-old high school student. At last, I decided to show the hidden report card to my parents along with the final report card. They seemed to be proud that I’d noticed my own faults and worked upon them, but they also stressed that they were my parents for a reason and I ought to come to them when such a mistake occurs.
