Sample Answer

Dear Sir,

I am Liza and I am writing to report the lack of parking facility in our office premises.

I have been working here as a front office executive for almost 3 years. This company is indeed an employee friendly organisation but parking is still a major concern for everyone. Majority of employees prefer private vehicles to commute to work. But, due to no parking space, employees have to use public transport. This is awfully unsafe for the female workers, especially at night.

Moreover, searching for a parking space nearby is a time consuming task for both business clients and employees. As our business is expanding, the number of visitor is also increasing. Hence, the problem of parking is becoming worse day by day

Having no parking zone is a serious problem and this cannot be neglected. Therefore, I would like to suggest some remedial measures to resolve this issue. Firstly, we can provide parking facility on the ground floor of the building by shifting the marketing department to the fifth floor. Alternatively, we can request the municipal corporation to allocate some reserved space for the parking in the nearby area.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours Sincerely

Liza

IELTS Speaking Cue Card – A competition you like to participate in

IELTS Speaking Cue Card – A competition you like to participate in

Talk about a competition (cooking, sports…etc.) you would like to participate in

  • What type of competition would it be?
  • Where will it be held?
  • What all qualities a person should have to be a part of such competition?
  • Why do you want to participate in it?

Sample Answer
Competition is a natural instinct which makes a person beat the benchmarking and create a new record. I want to participate in a storytelling competition. Storytelling is something in which the storyteller tries to convey a message, knowledge or information about an incident using a sequence of activities leading to a particular outcome.
Coming to the qualities one needs to become an outstanding story-teller, a person should have an ability to imagine and be able to connect well with the audience. He should also have excellent communication and inter-personal skills. Sense of humour will certainly be an added value. We can make storytelling more effective by using props, background music and special effects. With the help of voice modulations and mimicry, one can make story-telling more appealing.
I have developed an interest in storytelling over a period of time. I believe, I am fully equipped with the qualities a storyteller needs to have. A storyteller makes sure that audience not merely listen to the story but should also relate with the content of the story. This leaves an everlasting effect on the audience and they remember the story and storyteller for the lifetime. Therefore, it is significant for a storyteller to make this activity entertaining rather than monotonous.
When I was a child, my grandmother used to tell beautiful stories. Her way of narrating was so impressive and convincing that I used to believe in the existence of all fictional characters of such stories. By far, I have realised that storytelling is an art to make the audience become overwhelmed with the experience of listening to a story. (268 words)

Competition Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in Dehradun

Speaking (Part 3)

Q1. Should there be competition at workplace?
A1. Competition is pervasive i.e., found in all types of organisations. Competition at workplace can be healthy or unhealthy, depending on the attitude and intentions of a person who is competing. Healthy competition is considered to be constructive, whereas unhealthy competition could be quite destructive. Competition is a feeling which encourages people to contribute best of their efforts to achieve desired goals. Thus, in my opinion, as long as the competition is healthy, it is perfectly acceptable in the organisation.
Q2. What type of jobs have a high level of competition?
A2. Employees work on different levels in an organisation. Jobs which are highly paid generally have a high level of competition as these involve an increased level of responsibility and accountability. Jobs which involve more power and authority tend to have high competition level.
Q3. Who is more successful: a person born with competitive skills or, the one who has learnt these skills?
A3. In my opinion, successful people may or may not be born with competitive skills but they know how to best apply these skills in a productive way. They also keep enhancing their skills required to win the competition. Competitive people can utilise their aggression in a right and productive way. Competition is necessary to achieve something bigger but not at the cost of feelings and emotions of others.
Q4. Why do people compete?
A4. There are different people with different levels of needs. People who wants to be recognised and praised, do favour competition. Some people believe in competition because they think that it leads to favourable outcomes. It gives them an edge over others. Competition is important for the people who want to perform better by breaking the existing records so as to create new benchmarks to follow. People with positive discontent also compete, where they remain dissatisfied with their current status, yet keep aspiring for better with a positive attitude.
Q5. What are the factors responsible for preventing a person from being competitive?
A5. In my opinion, there are three major factors responsible for discouraging people to compete. The first in the list is fear of failure. People are afraid of being competitive as it can bring their self-esteem down if they lose anyways. The other factor is sense of gratification. Some people reach at a level where all their needs get satisfied, so nothing is left to compete for. The next one is past experiences: If someone have had a bad experience due to being a part of completion, they refrain themselves from it.

Education IELTS Band 7 Best Coaching in Dehradun

Sample Answer

There always exists a relationship between education and socialisation to advance the cognitive development of an individual. Nowadays, education has become technology driven and easily accessible. Some people prefer classroom learning while others favour online courses. Both the online and classroom classes have their own advantages and disadvantages. Suitability and selection of a course depend on an individual’s choices and circumstances. There are valid opinions to weigh both the sides of the discussion, which I will consider in the following paragraphs.

On one hand, classroom learning promotes the social, emotional and psychological development of the students as they learn together in a group. As a result, students develop skills of team building and group dynamics through mutual interaction and discussions in the classroom. In colleges and schools, classes are collaborative and more interactive. There is a two-way communication between the teacher and learners to understand concepts better. Moreover, it also supports participation and immediate feedback.

On the other hand, in online classes we can take the lectures conveniently anywhere, without travelling to campus. We get the facility to attend the classes anytime due to the option of flexible classes.  Online courses are comparatively cheaper as there is less fees and no transportation and stationary costs are involved. Virtual classes are suitable for those who are working and are unable to attend the regular classes.

Overall, in my view, classroom teaching is better than the online classes. This is primarily, because, the knowledge cannot be imparted in the same way to different types of learners. Different students have different levels of perception and understanding. Students get personal attention of the teacher in the classroom. It further helps the teacher to understand the potential and personalities of the students to teach them accordingly.
