It is also the time when people party and often loose control. Apart from them, there are still so many people who do not understand the concept of New year, that there is always hope in life. This time we are looking at sample questions that could be asked in IELTS Cue card section related to the new year celebrations.

  • with whom did you celebrate?
  • what did you do in the party?
  • why is it so special for you?

Also, explain the importance of new year parties in your life?


I am 23 now and consciously attended around 12 parties. But, I think the one party that I remember and cherish the most is the one we had in our first year of graduation. I had cleared a competitive exam and during the new year our exams were going on. So, no question of going home. We all were feeling a little low, but at around 11 in the night, we heard music. All of the students in our hostel wing, came out only to find that our Warden had organized a DJ and stuff to eat. He asked us all to join us. Overwhelmed by his gesture, we all went down and danced the whole night.

I remember dancing with around 400 people at songs I had never heard, the languages that I don’t understand but it was pure fun. We all became good friends after that and had a blast for the next four years of our graduation. I think the one reason I cherish it the most is because it brought with it lot of new things for me. I met new people, did things I never did. Like, dancing like a serpent and then like a girl. We were purely enjoying. There was no senior or junior, just bunch of people living the moment.

Although, party animal, is not the word that I would choose for myself. But, yes I do party on New year. For me, it is the time when I meet all the people I know, the ones I care for. Most probably, go out travelling with them. I believe, life is busy and we should just grab every occasion that we get to enjoy.



New year celebrations have never been very exciting for me but I remember the 2016 New year. It was the best new year I had till date and assume it to be the best till date.

It was during the end of 2015 that there were lot of personal and professional issues I was struggling with. For some reasons, I started feeling as if this is how life is going to be for a longer run now. Sitting on my couch when everyone else was partying I remember crying and feeling really bad.

At around 11:30, a really good friend of mine, I recently had a fight with dropped by me. She had been my school friend and we had shared lot of things together. Fighting with her did have an impact on me. She had beer with her, scooty keys and we just left the home together.

When the entire world was partying outside, I remember feeling the air and then reaching our school terrace and drinking beer. We revived our memories together, things that we had done and how life had just changed in some years. How quickly we had grown up. There was nothing particular but having that kind of talk, actually rejuvenated me. It made things so much more easier for me. Since that year, every year we meet at our school terrace for a bottle of beer and lot of memories together.

I think New year parties are a good way of celebrating and everyone should celebrated New year but I believe everyone should enjoy in the way that best suits them.
