Cue Card # A time when you didn’t share a truth with your best friend. Best IELTS Band7 Coaching in dehradun

SAMPLE ANSWER-     

Trust is considered to be an important tool in one’s friendship which takes time and diligence to rebuild if lost. Here, I’d like to talk about a time when I tried to conceal a secret from a friend which had a bad effect on our friendship. The scenario happened quite a while ago when we were in University. It was during our results when I tried to keep my best friend’s poor grades confidential as she was enjoying her cousin’s wedding at that time.  

As far as I remember, most of my friends were worried about their performance in the exams but my best friend had a different level of excitement since it was her relative’s wedding within two days. Though she was equally nervous about the results, she didn’t let her fear come between her happiness. When the result was declared, all of my friends cleared the exams with flying colors but unfortunately, my best friend result was not up to the expectations.  

I decided not to inform her about the result on a call as it might affect her joyful state of mind of the wedding ceremonies. But unluckily, she got this bitter news from one of our classmates. She was deeply affected by it as those results were going to have a major impact on our placements. 

Initially, this situation jeopardized our friendship and people tried to create misunderstandings between us. But after a couple of days, she considered my point of view and tried to look at it from my position. We later on, apologized and promised to never hide truth from each other, no matter how bitter it would be.

IELTS Cue Card # Talk about a product from your hometown

IELTS Cue Card # Talk about a product from your hometown

Talk about a product from your hometown.

  • You should say:
  • What it is
  • How it is made
  • What it is used for
  • And explain its significance in your hometown

IELTS CUE CARD Talk about a product from your hometown

Sample Answer

Today I will talk about a product from my hometown. I come from a small village in Ghana, my native lands have a rich history in handicrafts production and development. But for now I shall focus on the most versatile of them all; the basket.

Our handmade baskets were traditionally made from fibrous materials such as plant roots, backwoods, vines, banana leaves, cane and papyrus. These were naturally decomposable if rather flimsy. A good basket made in the traditionally manner could last two to five years. Now however, baskets are commonly made of plastic, wire, and in some cases, recycled materials. These have a far longer lifespan and not all are eco-friendly.

When I refer to a “basket” I imply a woven material crafted into all manner of shapes for all manner of different uses. Most young girls are taught from a young age how to braid these materials into cases, trunks, jar like containers, jewellery boxes, carry bags, winnows; anything with in the realm of possibility. That’s why you can never find two identical genuine handmade baskets. There will always be something different among them, be it the structure, pattern, shape, lid, row count or material, anything can vary.

The art of crafting baskets is a cherished tradition. With the tourism industry booming, handmade baskets are a very good income for a rural household. This also gives some power back to the females of the village, in a male-dominated society, they still have a voice, because it is their craft keeping the family afloat. During farming season, the grains are winnowed and sifted. The grains, herbs and spices are stored in cases and jars. They are transported in carry bags to the market. There is hardly a task in my village one can think of that does not pay homage to the art of weaving.

In this way, the basket is more than just a product for our village, it is survival, it is our voice, and it is our craft. (333 Words)

IELTS Cue Card # Job you would not like

IELTS Cue Card # Job you don’t want to do

Talk about a job you don’t want to do in the future/ a job you wouldn’t like to have. You should say:

  • What job it is
  • What skills are required for this job?
  • And explain why you don’t want to do it in the future.

IELTS Cue Card Job you don’t want to do  BEST COACHING IELTS BAND7 DEHRADUN

Sample Answer:

In a way, almost all jobs are meant for making a livelihood, raising a family or fulfilling someone’s dream. Saying that a given profession is better than the other seems quite unfair to me. Certainly, a lot of factors like interest, knowledge, skills and circumstances drive people towards a career. In fact, multiple careers are becoming increasingly popular these days.

Personally, I wouldn’t like to work in a Business Process Outsourcing, commonly known as BPO. It is a business practice in which big companies sign contracts with smaller organizations for providing specific services to its customers. Attending phone calls of the customers for solving service-related problems or lodging a complaint is one of the most common types of services offered by the majority of BPOs.

A minimum level of education required for working in a BPO is not very high, even high school graduates can also be accepted. But, excellent verbal communication skills in English are a must for anyone who wishes to be a part of any BPO. Patience is another important trait required for working efficiently in this sector.

The main reason why I don’t wish to join a BPO is that receiving phone calls from irate customers is an integral part of the job. Callers won’t listen to you. They have the liberty of using any kind of abusive language and we’ve to follow a strict code of conduct and remain calm. On top of that, they expect an immediate remedy to their issues. No matter how trained/skilled we are, after a while frustration takes over. In my view, this kind of job can lead to mental health problems and also degrade the quality of one’s personal life. I know many people who left their BPO jobs because of the high-stress levels they experienced on a day-to-day basis.

To sum up, like every other work, this job has its own pros and cons. A little change in customers’ attitude towards service providers can make BPOs a desirable workplace, but I doubt this would ever happen.

  • What the message was

    And explain how it affected you.

IELTS Exam IELTS Dehradun coronavirus

Sample Answer

Today, I’m going to tell you about an important message that I received last week. It was Friday afternoon. I was listening to my favourite song. Suddenly, a message popped up on my phone. It said: Urgent – Due to novel COVID-19 outbreak, all IELTS examinations across India have been cancelled. The information was sent by IDP: IELTS Australia, an organization which develops and manages IELTS exams in India and many parts of the world.

My IELTS test was scheduled the next day i.e. Saturday, the 21st March. At first, I couldn’t believe it because receiving fake news is quite common these days. Also, the cancellation came at very short notice, just few hours prior to the planned time.

IELTS is an expensive test. I’d paid the full fee of the test and it is non-refundable. Considering all these factors, it became necessary for me to check the authenticity of the message. I dialled the toll free help line number of IDP. The line was terribly busy. After trying for over 20 minutes, someone answered my phone and confirmed that the message was real.

I’ve been preparing for this exam for quite a while and I was eagerly looking forward to performing well in the main test. This sudden cancellation was very upsetting. I was cursing the COVID-19 pandemic for spoiling my plans. Sadly, there was no choice at all except waiting for the new date.

The day after, the government of India imposed a 21-day nationwide lockdown, as a preventive measure to control the spread of the coronavirus. It was then when I realized just how critical the situation was; I wasn’t the only one affected. Several other key exams were cancelled or postponed. This consoled me.

Now, I am at home doing my duty to remain fit and healthy, be hygienic and make the most of these rather unfortunate circumstances.
