IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # Polite Person

A polite person is someone who treats everyone with respect. No matter how rudely we sometimes behave, we always enjoy the company of a polite person. A polite person often not only lifts the mood of the person sitting next to them but also changes the dignity of the whole place around them. This time we are looking at a cue card that talks about a polite person we have in our family.

Describe a polite person you know. You should say –

  • who is the person?
  • how do you know him or her?
  • why do you think he or she is a polite person

Today I am going to talk about a former colleague of mine, his name is Adrien Agreste.
 To this day, I have not found a more agreeable, sincere and sweet person.
Adrian really was the epitome of politeness. He always followed the general rules of politeness like holding open doors and saying “bless you” after a sneeze. To my surprise, I never found found him pushing people for anything. Judging people was not at all a part of his personality.  He was very caring and was always ready to lend a helping hand.
When I had just joined the office, he had introduced himself along with all of my other new co-workers. He had shown me around and been a huge help in getting me settled into the new environment. During office meetings he listened to everyone and asked for more input genuinely making everyone feel involved respected and valued. It is true he was awkward sometimes and liked to apologize a little too much but that was just a part of who he was. I cannot think of a more charming person.


Politeness has been one of the traits I have always admired in people. It shows to me the fact that in the end, we all are best when we behave as humans. Although there have been many I have encountered, I found my mother the most polite person I know. She is one of the most soft-spoken people in our entire family. Not only does she respects people she knows, but she is respectful to everyone who interacts with her.

Recently, a beggar was roaming around in our colony asking for either food or money and while everyone disrespectfully asked the person to move, my mother not only gave him respect but also food and money. On asking her why she did that, she replied that “everyone deserves to be treated respectfully, irrespective of their position, behavior or clothing.”

My mother has always tried instilling these qualities in both of her kids, although we are not as kind as her, we try to follow her teaching of respecting every individual.
