IELTS Cue Card Sample Questions # Foreign Visit
Travelling is one experience that fills our souls and makes us realize so much more about ourselves and our surroundings. We as humans have been the barefoot walkers and searchers for as long as anyone can remember. Right from Napolean to Gandhi, it has always been our search for the unknown, the quest to find new lands and to search for new ways of living that have led us to evolve over a period of time. This time we are looking at a cue card that talks about a country a person would like to visit in the near future.
Describe a foreign country you would like to visit. You must say :
- which country is it?
- when would you like to visit?
- what is the reason for visiting the country?
also, explain, how is it different from your homeland?
Visiting a foreign land has always been on my checklist and it was recently when I had the resources to visit a foreign country. Through extensive searching, all thanks to Google, I have decided to visit Ireland in the near future. Ireland is an island in North Atlantic and is near to the United Kingdom. It is believed to be one of the safest countries to visit. Even more, over the years, I have heard so much about the Irish people that visiting the country and meeting its people is definitely something to look forward to.
What excites me the most is that Ireland has the smallest of the Aran Islands, Inisheer, which is, home to a population of just 250. It also has a state named Dublin which has as the Guinness Storehouse and Book of Kells. When I chose Ireland as my first place for international travel, I was fascinated by the people and the culture of the country. It was the first country to have found the potato and being a potato lover added up.
Ireland and India, are different in terms of culture, the people but we do share the same historic bond. Rebellions in Ireland in the past have motivated people in my country to fight for freedom as well. I hope I am able to plan better and enjoy a harmonious stay in Ireland.
SAMPLE ANSWER 2
Travelling to a new country is altogether a new experience. It teaches so much that one can never compare it to the side traveling that most people today. I have never been to a foreign country but would like to visit Britain or the United Kingdom sometime in future. Great Britain has ruled our country for over 200 years and I have always known the side of us. But, it really interests me in knowing the other side of the coin.
What history exactly Britain holds and how is our country portrayed now in Britain. I would like to visit the Buckingham Palace and the very famous London Eye. Also, there is the Oxford University which I would love to visit. Over a period of time, there are many English movies that I have seen with the background of United Kingdom and I would love to see the countryside of UK.
There are so many more sites I would love to visit the Roman Baths and maybe take a stroll in the Warner Bros Studio. Britain has been a country with a vast difference from India. From the colonial times till date, there are many cultural differences there and I have known the impact of Britishers in India. This time I would love to see how Indians had an impact on the culture of England.
