IELTS Cue Card # Describe an intelligent person you know

Describe an intelligent person you know
You should say:

  • Who this person is?
  • What does she/he do?
  • Why do you think she/he is smart? How do you feel about her/him?
Sample Answer:

I have come across so many people in my life. Some of the people I know are truly intelligent and they have impressive personalities. Today I am going to talk about an intelligent person who is my history teacher. Her name is Arpita Shah, she is a brilliant teacher with an exceptional personality. If I talk about her physical appearance, she is petite and vivacious. She has short hair and usually wore saree to work.
She is a History teacher who has immense knowledge about her subject. She completed her Majors in History from Boston University. She had received Fischler Charles Fellowship to pursue this course and I’m proud to say that she was one of the only two Indians to secure this scholarship. She got good job opportunities abroad but she opted to teach the students of her own country and promote quality education.
Apart from her academic achievements, she is also a creative person. She is a part of a Drama Club in our city where plays are conducted in different languages of our country, this aims at conserving the traditions of India.
I think she is smart because she is a solution-oriented person. She has solutions to all the problems and she is always ready to help people and give them advice in different walks of life. In addition to her tacit knowledge, she also has a good sense of humour. Evidently, she is the smartest person I have ever met. I feel grateful that she is my mentor and I would like to stay in touch with her throughout my life.
