Describe your ideal home or place to live. You should say –

  • where would it be?

  • study room and a bedroom
  • bike, books, media content
  • live with family
  • location is fantastic
  • memories of the place
  • get to live a life of the traveller

Bedroom – a room used for sleeping

shed – separated building from the house used for keeping garden tools

hall – an open area as you come into the house

terrace or patio – the paved area between the house and garden for sitting and eating

detached house – a house that is not connected to any other building


My dream house for a very long time has been my grandfather’s place in Almora. It is a detached house with a large patio from where we can see the Himalayas. On winters, when it is all snowy, looking at the Himalayas is much more peace than anything in the world. For a long time no one has been living in that house, but it has two rooms, a big hall, kitchen and other necessities.

I’d like to renovate the house and make it as per my imaginaton. It’d be amazing to have my study room there. The room has a window, outside of which is a big tree. In the room, I’d prefer the walls to be painted purple and on the adjacent side of the window would be my study table. Near to it will be my laptop table. On that table will be my gadgets.

The other room, the bedroom will have a window along with a small table beside my bed. On that table, I’d prefer having novels that I will read before going to bed. On a larger scale, my ideal house is the one with books, media and bike. The reason I call it my ideal house is because of the memories attached with this house and the perfect location that it is in. Living in the house gives me a perfect balance of being a traveller and a homely person.

I’d like to talk about the one particular walk I had with my best friend a year ago. It had been a very tough day for me, working on weekends and to top it, the work was a bit bizarre. I was about to crash when Pant called me up for a walk. I remember running from my work desk and out to the office gate as if I had found my freedom. We initially thought of going for a 15-minute walk but I came back after around one hour.

We were ambling talking about the unnecessary things, discussing each other and having a beautiful time. It was late in the evening and the winds were blowing beautifully. We had burger first then tea followed by corn and then ice cream. There was not much distance that we covered, we were around 500 metres from the office area, but we took many rounds of the same place and it was amazing.

We chatted about his dreams and mine and then about the things going right and wrong in our lives. Then, we discussed our families and our old crushes, broken hearts and almost everything. It was a lovely walk, after a terrible day at work, when you are stuck to a computer screen for more than 10 hours, nothing can be better than having a walk with your best friend.



IELTS Cue Card Sample Questions # Rule in School

You should spend 1 minute writing your notes.

Describe a rule that you did not like in your school.

You should say :

  • what was it?
  • how did others think about this rule?
  • have you ever violated this rule?

explain why you did not like this rule?


School days have been the best days of my life and no matter what I believe we all have memories attached to them. They do bring nostalgic moments in us. I studied in a convent school and there were many rules but the one that I did not like was if someone had not the proper dress, they would be sent out of the assembly and delayed for the first lecture. Our school had prefects and their job was to make sure that we all were in our proper dresses. Even a tint of error and we would be thrown out. Being an average person, I never had those perfect shoes or dress and so most of the times I would be out.

I remember once it became so frequent that people accepted it as my nature. The reason I did not like this rule was that, at some point in my life, I had an inferiority complex because of this. Children would make fun of me because of this and we would fight. Because of missing the first lecture, I did miss out on some very important things that were taught and it did impact my studies.

Most of the people in my school had no issues with this rule. Probably, because they always did wore the right dresses and shoes. But, there were few like me, who used to be out because of our neatness. I remember making friends all the way during this time. We would laugh and giggle sometimes. But initially, it was quite rough for all of us and I believe there could have been a better way of teaching us the importance of maintaining a dress code.


IELTS Cue Card Sample Questions # National Day

You should spend 20 minutes on this task.

Describe a national day in your country.

You should say:

  • what day it is
  • how is it celebrated?
  • what the historical significance of this day is

and explain how you feel to this day.


India is one of those countries that has fought a long battle against colonization. After around, 200 years of domination and a long struggle against British power and other social impacts, India gained its freedom on 15 August 1947. But, on the very same day, the partition of India and Pakistan also took place. On the day of our freedom, our first Prime Minister raised the Indian flag in Red Fort.

Since then we have been celebrating our Independence day on 15 August. On this day, customarily, the prime minister of our country, raises the Indian National Flag in Red Fort. Independence day is a gazetted holiday in our nation and all the schools, colleges, banks and other institutions celebrate it with pomp and show. The organizations have a flag hosting ceremony wherein, the highest ranking person hosts the flag.

As a country, the Prime Minister raises the flag and gives an address to the nation. On this day, parades and cultural events take place in Red Fort by students from different parts of the country. In the northern and the central part of our country, most people fly kites.

This day is quite special for me. It reminds me of the various freedom that I enjoy in my life. It brings a sense of pride in me and I feel amazing. On this day, when I notice the Indian flag being hosted almost everywhere, it just gets back to me the vigour with which the Indians must have fought to make sure that I enjoy my freedom. Independence day reminds me to fight for my freedom and independence. It tells me that focus and determination can set one free.
