Cue Card borrowed from someone that was very useful

SAMPLE ANSWER One-

To be honest, I avoid borrowing as much as I can. However, sometimes it becomes the need of the hour. Today, I’d like to talk about one such incident.

I work as a senior tour executive in a multinational travel company. Meeting clients and providing information about our top tourist attractions are my primary responsibilities. We have a large customer base and this keeps me very busy on most of the days. Normally, the workload is manageable but it increases considerably during the peak seasons.

I can vividly recall a day when four 1-hour presentations were scheduled in the first half of the day. Fortunately, three of them went smoothly without any problem. But, in the last one, my laptop stopped working. Its screen became blue and no key seemed to work. It was a helpless situation at a client site, for a moment I felt embarrassed.

Without thinking too much, I asked the audience if I could borrow a laptop from someone. A gentleman came forward and gave his laptop to me. Luckily, I had a pen drive with all the required details. Setting up the borrowed laptop and combining the data didn’t take long and I could finish the remaining presentation without any more hiccups. In the end, I apologized the organizers for the inconvenience caused and thanked everyone for their co-operation.

From the piece I just narrated, one can tell I didn’t give the action much consideration. Although looking back now, I see how this could have easily flustered me, had this occurred earlier on in my career; back when I considered relying on others to be a weakness. Now though, I didn’t feel any shame in asking for help via borrowing of that laptop, working in a team helped me understand that giving and borrowing is a big part of any team’s success.

SAMPLE ANSWER Two-

Borrowing things is way better than buying when it comes to living an economical way. I can recall many situations when I borrowed or lent things to my closed ones at the time of need.  At this point, I would like to talk about a time when I lend a market space to commence a startup business with my college friend.  

It was the time when I completed my University and had an innovative idea of starting a bakery with a friend. At that point, my parents did not support me with this idea as they wanted me to go for a more stable profession. Then, I approached my paternal uncle hoping that he could provide us with some assistance. He turned out to be so benevolent that he offered to lend me his commercial space for the bakery.  

As I mentioned earlier, my friend and I had planned to open a joint bakery in our hometown. And when my uncle offered us his place, we decided to decorate the interiors to attract more customers.

This commercial space proved to be a pragmatic choice for our business startup. As my uncle did not pressurized us much with the rent, we were able to run this place at our own pace. I’m indebted to him for his help and support. Today our patisserie is quite well known in my hometown and is running profitably.

Cue Card # Describe a historical period/time you want to know more about.

IELTS Speaking Task # Cue Card historical period

Describe a historical period/time you want to know more about.

You should say:

  • which period it is
  • how you know about this period of history
  • what its importance is in history

and explain what you want to know more about this period.

SAMPLE ANSWER-  

My country, India is quite recognized for its rich and prosperous history. One such historical period was the Indus Valley civilization that existed long back but its prevalence was recently revealed in the 1900s by an Archeological survey. It was believed to be the core of art and culture during those days. 

When I first studied about this civilization in class and the planning of this period’s urbanization, it captivated me to a great extent. It was the first time that I took interest in history while learning about this time period. I learned that even in that era when there were limited resources available, the people of Indus Valley civilization enjoyed a highly developed city life.  

This mysterious civilization was situated on the banks of the river Indus, the present day Pakistan. I think that it’s an important part of the historical culture as the town-planning and water management system which the people followed during that time is an excellent example for the modern world. Despite the absence of educational facilities, it is said that people who belonged to this time period had built well equipped sanitary facilities and harvesting system as well. When I further looked at the remains of artifacts of this civilization, I was actually convinced that citizens of this civilization led a comfortable and luxurious life. 

I’m keen to learn more this time period and what led to its destruction. Though the town had well managed farming and architectural construction, archeologists are carrying on their research related to the specific cause of its disappearance. It is said that today’s world has a lot to learn about urbanization and administration from the remains of the Indus Valley civilization.

Cue Card # A time when you didn’t share a truth with your best friend. Best IELTS Band7 Coaching in dehradun

SAMPLE ANSWER-     

Trust is considered to be an important tool in one’s friendship which takes time and diligence to rebuild if lost. Here, I’d like to talk about a time when I tried to conceal a secret from a friend which had a bad effect on our friendship. The scenario happened quite a while ago when we were in University. It was during our results when I tried to keep my best friend’s poor grades confidential as she was enjoying her cousin’s wedding at that time.  

As far as I remember, most of my friends were worried about their performance in the exams but my best friend had a different level of excitement since it was her relative’s wedding within two days. Though she was equally nervous about the results, she didn’t let her fear come between her happiness. When the result was declared, all of my friends cleared the exams with flying colors but unfortunately, my best friend result was not up to the expectations.  

I decided not to inform her about the result on a call as it might affect her joyful state of mind of the wedding ceremonies. But unluckily, she got this bitter news from one of our classmates. She was deeply affected by it as those results were going to have a major impact on our placements. 

Initially, this situation jeopardized our friendship and people tried to create misunderstandings between us. But after a couple of days, she considered my point of view and tried to look at it from my position. We later on, apologized and promised to never hide truth from each other, no matter how bitter it would be.

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.
