IELTS Cue Card Sample Questions # Favorite Website

Websites are the talk of the town these days! They are everywhere, everyone has to do something with them! With so many people becoming bloggers or vloggers, the market has just widened. This time we are looking at a cue card that asks the student for their favorite website,

CUE CARD

Talk about your favourite Website.

  • Why is it your favourite website?
  • How often do you use it?
  • What would life be without it?
SAMPLE ANSWER

Internet has just changed the way the world operates. Gone are the days when you were tied down to your circumstances. These days, because of internet, you can be anything that you want  to be and every one have in some way become connected to it. We all have our favorite websites, that we visit more often. My favorite is youtube.com. The reason for me liking it is that it is a fantastic way of sharing things. People can upload their work, they can see what people are doing without even knowing them personally. I myself have used it for watching motivational videos, learning new stuff and sharing many a times.

I started using youtube 2 years ago and it has been a great experience. Being a blogger, youtube is another source of information for me, a rather descriptive and more reliable one! So, I use it for my work and also for leisure some times. I can stay on youtube to watch trailers for movies and songs and speeches. Even more, for my exam preparation, there are plethora of channels that I look forward to.

Necessity is the mother of invention. I have been using it since the time I started blogging. Without it, life will be difficult and more importantly, I guess it will be quite limited. But I hope something similar or may be even better than it pops up.

Sujish is a 31 year-old native Malayalam speaker from India. He got an overall Band 8 in IELTS (with an amazing 9 in Listening) and became one of the winners in our IELTS results competition in March. Here are a few things that Sujish did and recommends that you do to gain a higher score in IELTS:
He says
Listening

Listening was never a problem, except for handling the tension in the first few minutes of the test. I am a regular viewer of English movies and English TV series. However, I practiced for the test before the exam to gain experience with the kind of questions that may be given.

While watching the movies, sometimes I used to switch on the subtitles in order to clearly understand the conversation. I never felt any difficulties with understanding the monologues on TV (for example the Discovery channel and National Geographic).

Reading

I am a regular reader of English newspapers. This helped me to complete the reading test before the allowed time. During the exam, I read the questions first and then went to read the paragraphs; this helped me identify the area where the answers to the questions reside.

Speaking

The only difficult part in this sub-test was handling the tension during the interview. I was able to achieve this by having a friendly talk with my IELTS examiner for a few minutes before starting the exam.

I deliberately used some phrases that I learned after registering for the exam. Moreover, I got a friend to interview me at least once every two days through Skype.

Writing

Writing is the difficult part of the test for me since I am a software engineer and I have not written anything on the paper after my graduation. My handwriting is the worst I have ever seen.
Update: Sujish asked the IELTS test centre to re-evaluate his Writing section, and as a result his score went up from 6.5 to 7.
Congratulations to Sujish on getting the score he really deserves!
