IELTS Cue Card Sample Questions # Unlearned

Schools are considered the epitome of learning. It is in school that most of us gain education and make careers for ourselves. However, in recent times there have been serious questions about the education system and its impact on students. This time we are looking at a cue card that talks about the things that one can never learn in school.

Describe something that cannot be learned in school. You should say –

  • what is it?
  • why do you think it cannot be taught in school?
  • who is the right person to teach it?

SAMPLE ANSWER

School has been a very important part of my life and there is a multitude of things I learned during my school life. But, as they say, there can never be a better and bigger school than life. Schools definitely teach us the various subjects, the importance of languages, geography, and biology but what most schools fail to teach us is the right way of life.

The education system of my country has been such that we are taught right from the beginning that it is important to get good marks, but no one tells us why. Rather, the fact that all the questions being taught in school are of what and how with little or no emphasis on why! Sadly, this is one habit that an individual inculcates from the society he or she lives in. The right attitude can never be taught in schools as a child grasps more what he or she sees that what is being taught.

The best people to teach it would be the parents, but in case they fail, the responsibility goes down to teachers and then finally government. The society must be given shape such that children spend more of their time on learning rather than memorizing. The market must be built in a manner which allows even the average students to make the most of their lives.
