Sample Answer:

During my stay in London, I went out with my friends to the city of Bath. Bath is a city in the county of Somerset, England. It is 97 miles (156 km) west of London.
I had always read about the city and its hot water springs, which was discovered in 836 BC by the British king Bladud. The city is famous for Roman Bath, a well preserved Roman site for public bathing, which was built in c AD 60 and for its Georgian architecture….. Royal Crescent, Circus, Pump Room and Assembly Room. Around the 18th century the city became fashion capital of England. Jane Austen the famous English novelist lived there in the early 19th century.
On our first day, we went around the city on foot saw the Royal Crescent, Victoria Garden The Circus, Bath Abbey, went to the Saracens Head a local pub (where Charles Dicken reputedly lived) had a few Guinness talked to the locals, went to Club XL. The following day, we saw the museum, the Pump House and tour the guided bus tour of the city of bath and the spectacular skyline tour and then around the evening we saw the rugby match between the teams of Bath and Bristol.
I really liked the city for its history, which was largely influenced by Roman’s, hot springs, Georgian architecture, natural beauty and for its stint with Jane Austin and Charles Dickens. (236 Words.)

IELTS Cue Card # Important Letter

There are so many times when instead of choosing a direct face to face conversation, we choose letter or emails to express ourselves. Some of them are the

Describe an important letter you wrote to someone.

You should say:

  • When you wrote it
  • Whom you wrote it to
  • What it was about

And explain why it was an important letter.

Sample Answer One

There have been many letters that I have written which too an extent have shaped my life but I remember writing a letter to a friend I drifted apart after some misunderstandings. For a very long time, I wanted to know the reasons behind the things that happened in between us and why we tried to do the things that we did.
It was almost frustrating and annoying and after three years I gathered all the courage and wrote to him.

I told him about how I felt about our relation and what irritated me and how I felt after it all was over. The entire journey of three years, I penned it down, hoping for some explanation on his behalf as to why he did what he did. But, for my shock or surprise, he simply told me that he has forgotten everything and even if something had happen in the past, it is all over and there is no specific reason behind it.

I was shattered in the beginning because I truly had to think a lot before I could just pen down everything and instead of giving me any explanation he simply sided away. The reason the letter was very important for me because I could finally move on with my life and there were so many things that I learnt. One of them being that there is no point being silent in a relation and then you have to make sure that the first person to respect you and love you is you and you are responsible for whatever happens to you.

I believe had I not written the letter, I wont have ever gathered the will power to move on with my life and make something good out of it.


Sample Answer Two

There have been so many letters that I have written in my life, both at personal and professional level. But, the one letter that I regard as truly important for me and the one which actually helped me shape my career is my resignation letter.

I remember working for a multi national company for about a year and it was during that time that I realized that this job is not giving me any fun and excitement to live about. There is a fixed salary that I get and there is nothing much more than that. No targets to meet and nothing exciting.

There is no work pressure and the feeling of getting things done, because you are working as a team and it is more about collective, so neither the praise nor the punishment comes to individual and I think in some ways it takes away the individuality from the person.

The reason the letter is very important for me is because I had to think lot of times and it was after I had written around 3 resignation letters that I finally decided that I want to do something else with my life. It was a great experience in that company but what was great was to be able to end the journey at the right time. So, I had to fight with my friends and family and the people who care for me the most and then do something that is best for me.

It was after that letter that I realized that I do have lot of courage and can do whatever I want to in my life.

IELTS Cue Card # Ways To Relax

There is so much work that we all do but when it is all work and no play we surely get tired easily. Most of the people, hence figure out a way to relax a bit. Let us today have a look at a cue card that talks about ways a person can relax.

Describe a way to relax that you find effective.

You should say:

  • what you do
  • where & when you usually do this
  • who you usually do it with

and explain why this is relaxing for you.

Sample Answer One

I really like taking short breaks while I am working. So, after having worked for almost like an hour, I would go out of my seat and walk a little bit here and there, drink water and just completely close my eyes for some time and be proud of myself for the work that I have done for an hour.

I do it almost for everything. So, it could be while I am playing or working or for that matter while I am studying. It is very important for me because I believe that having a ten minutes break in every hour, not only allows me to push myself harder, it also helps me not to get drained by the kind of work that I do.

I am a software engineer and doing the relaxing thing makes me more committed and focused towards the work. Although, people go out and relax with their friends, I prefer doing this activity alone, so I have no one to talk to and can completely feel good about peace and silence and just go back to work with new mind.

The reason it works for me is because, I am not that sort of a person who can work a lot. But, then I have got dreams which I need to get fulfilled. This every hour break makes me feel as if I am having my quality time and I am able to relax a bit here and there. This allows me not to be exhausted or over whelmed by the work that I do.


Sample Answer Two

I love relaxing after a tiring day but for me the best way to relax is by playing badminton. So, every day after I have finished my work I go out to play badminton with my friends. It is almost exciting and relaxing because to be able to play the game well it is very important for me to forget about whatever has happened in the entire day and focus on what is happening at the present.

This exercise not only makes me good because it is a kind of physical activity but also refreshes because there is so much of mental activity involved in it. And then I with my friends take up those silly competitions, like who is going to win, how long can we play and things like where to hit the target. It is amazing and makes me feel good and prepared for the other day.

Also, when I am playing, it makes me feel as if I am having both, work life balance which helps me go out and do my work in a better way. Because, after the work I know that I do have time for myself and I can enjoy with my friends.

The reason I love it is because apart from just whiling away my time, I am actually doing a physical and a mental activity and it helps me to be able to remain fit and work better.

IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # Historical Event

Describe an important historical event in your country.

You should say :

  • when it happened
  • what is its significance
  • what were the important people involved in it

Also, say why is it important to the history of your country.

India is the largest democracy in the world and the largest country in South East Asia. But,  India has not been democratic since time immemorial. We were under the rule of British for almost 200 years and it was after a long freedom fight that India became independent. In the midnight of 15 August 1947, when the world was asleep, India woke up to a new freedom, with the first Prime Minister as Jawaharlal Nehru.

But, what was the most happy moment for the entire country, required so much of effort and so may people becoming martyrs. No matter, how many people we say responsible for our freedom, I believe the first hammer that was struck to Britishers was by Rani Laxmi Bai in 1857. The revolt of 1857 was the first time that the entire India united against the British Rule. The revolt started from Meerut where some sepoys started a rebellion against the Britishers and soon it spread out to the different parts of the country, involving Rani Laxmi Bai, Mangal Pandey, Birjis Qadr,Babu Kunwar Singh and many more.

There was no one particular reason for the rebellion but many of them. Britishers had for a long time tried to rule the country indirectly, taking away all the resources of the country and weakening the internal power of the country, not allowing the rulers to rule. Although, at that time, India was being ruled by different forces, when the rebellion took place, the entire country went to Bahadur Shah Jafar.

Although, India lost that battle, but Britishers realized that if they want to rule the country, they need to rule from Delhi and Indians realized that they too can fight against Britishers. It was after this battle that several groups started coming in to fight against Britishers for freedom, which we definitely got in 1947.


What do you think we can learn by studying the events of the past?

We learn from our mistakes, and just like individuals learn from the mistakes made by themselves or by others, we as entire society can learn from the mistakes that we have made in the past. Also, there are things that we can repeat that were good in history. To be able to repeat and prevent it is very important to know the history and knowing history is not about knowing the names and characters but about understanding the entire flow of data.

What important events do you think might take place in the future?

With respect to my country, I believe there are certain events that are bound to happen in the future. One of them is the strengthening of women in our country. There is a certain degree of respect and love given to women in our country but there are certain areas in which we lack in terms of equality. I believe that in future there will be more of woman power coming up. Also, it is very likely possible that the matter of Kashmir will be solved in the future. It is high time that India and Pakistan are fighting over the case of Kashmir, causing distress to both Kashmir, Pakistan and India. I hope and believe that the decision will be made very soon.

Do you think internet is a good place to learn about history?

Definitely yes. For the initial startup, I do believe that internet is a great place to learn about history. You can learn from different sources, for free and figure out if you are really interested in learning about history. When that happens, one can very easily go for a formal course. Even though, if people are not interested in going for formal courses, one can learn about it from different websites and you tube and so much more.
