IELTS Cue Card Sample Questions # Ownership

There are many things that we own, the things that we buy out of love or sometimes because of necessities. But, then there are also times when we do not need those items any longer. For instance, it could be a camera that you got but then you got bored of it or maybe did not had the chance to use it. In this cue card, we are talking about a thing that an individual owned but would like to remove.

Talk about an own thing that you would like to remove. You should say –

  • what is the thing?
  • when did you buy it?
  • why would you like to remove it?

also, explain, why did you own it in the first place.


I have owned a lot of things over a period of time, sometimes a camera, then a phone, books, but out of all of them I think it is time for me to say goodbye to some of my books! Being a bibliophile I have a collection of a lot of books and magazines which I have kept over a period of time with me. There are certain fiction books, non-fiction, and autobiographies. Some of the magazines that I bought either from airports or bookstores.

Initially, I thought I should keep all of them for the entire lifetime. But, with time I have realized that it is a good idea to give away the books that I have read already and gained the required knowledge. This helps in bringing room for some other books.

Keeping all of the books for the lifetime create a lot of clutter in the room that I live in, leaving no space for other things. Sometimes I feel overburdened surrounded by these many books around me. I do love books and reading them and have had a good collection of all the books, most of which I have read twice. I think the time has come to let go of some of the books.
