IELTS Speaking Cue Card: A recent event that made you happy Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in Dehradun

Sample Answer

Happiness is a feeling of contentment which is characterised by a sense of well-being. To be happy, we have to struggle in order to fulfil our needs at different stages of life. Moreover, achieving something after many attempts and failures, we truly understand the meaning of real happiness.

I belong to Delhi and I completed my post-graduation in Business Administration six months ago. Since I was not willing to leave my parents alone, I was looking for a suitable job in Delhi only. In spite of being a topper, I was unable to get through any interview after trying for almost 5 months. Alongside the campus interviews, I was also applying in different companies. Most of my batch mates were already got placed through campus placement. So, the level of my stress and anxiety was increasing day by day. I wanted to make my parents feel proud of me by fulfilling their expectations. In the process of job hunting, one thing I had realised that getting a job is not as simple as it seems

Finally, on September 1st, this year, I got an interview call from a renowned multinational company based in Delhi. I gathered all my confidence and courage to face that interview. I was ready to focus more on the performance rather than the result. Hence, I was determined to give my best in the interview no matter what. After facing different rounds of interview, I was finally selected for my dream job. To my surprise, the salary offered to me was beyond my expectations. My happiness knew no bounds and tears started rolling down my eyes. I thanked God and my parents for the same.

This event is the happiest and unforgettable moment of my life. It has taught me a lesson for the lifetime that we should never give up and keep trying to achieve our goals in life.

Describe a time when you organized a happy event successfully.

  • What was that event and where did it take place?
  • How did you prepare for it and who else helped you?
  • Was it your first time for organizing such event?

And what was your experience about it.

SAMPLE ANSWER TWO-

Event management is altogether a discipline which requires you to be dexterous in certain skills set. Time management, schedule and sequence of different programmes in that event, content refinement and diffusion of a spirit of harmony and excellence; are some of the pivotal ingredients of event organization. For me, it was the farewell party at school, that opportunitised me with its organization. I was at school in eleventh class and we, the penultimate class was responsible for the farewell party to passing outs. I was assigned by our class teacher to supervise and manage the whole arrangements.

Although, I was a little docile in my schooldays, but as soon as my teacher asked me to undertake the farewell party, I was an instantaneous volunteer. May be the task of responsibility was a driver of my happiness and contention, so I readily prompted. One of my girl classmates was assisting me in this. We had to arrange the snacks and dinner, good music rolls, speech/sitting arrangements, floral/ribbon decorations and mementos to be awarded to final year students. Most of it was arranged from within the school including the food that was catered by our mess people. I prepared the itinerary of events with a proper layout.

This was my maiden attempt at organizing an event. Therefore, I was a little anxious too. My prominent worry was about electric supply disruption as we did not arrange a generator for the party. It was as per the teacher’s discretion. But fortunately, we didn’t meet any such hiccup.

It was a fine learning experience for me. Putting things at a right place at right time is an art of management, that I learnt from it. It boosted my spirits for taking initiatives in life too. Letting your own organized event happen in front of you successfully gave me a sense of accomplishment, a sense of satisfaction.

IELTS CUE CARD SAMPLE QUESTIONS # INTERESTING CONVERSATION Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in dehradun

SAMPLE ANSWER 1

I remember travelling alone to Bhubaneswar once from New Delhi on train. It was a long 24 hours journey and initially I was so perforated that I decided opening a novel to read. It was Steve Jobs biography and while I was reading it a girl sitting at the opposite berth asked me if I was fan of Apple. I told her my interests in the shaping of Apple and we had a great conversation on Steve Jobs and how Apple shaped the world around.

We talked about the Microsoft and Apple war and then the obvious, Steve Jobs or Bill Gates. It was interesting because there were so many laughing points and then we drifted from Microsoft and Apple to India and what we as the so called youth can do something good for the country. We then shared our travel stories and it was pretty amazing. She was working for TCS in Kolkata and it was pretty amazing.


SAMPLE ANSWER 2

I was once travelling to Bangalore from Chennai and met this amazing guy on airplane. So, he was sitting next to me and I was busy gazing out of the airplane just to kill time and he initiated the conversation with a joke. We both laughed and then we talked about toastmasters. He was part of it and I was as well. So, we talked about our first speeches and the people we got to meet through out our toastmasters journey. Our mistakes and the people we admire for their speeches.

We then talked about travelling and the places we have been too. He had been to Dehradun and I have lived there. So, we shared our Dehradun diaries as well.
It was particularly interesting because for some reasons we found a ground to connect with and it we took off from there.

Another Similar Cue Card

Describe an interesting conversation you had with your friend.

  • Who the friend was?
  • What was the topic?
  • When and where did you have this conversation?

And how did you find it interesting?

SAMPLE ANSWER TWO-

We often come across so many people at home, work and society, in general. Communication, verbal, is generally conveyed in order to give meaning to our meetings and life. When this communication happens with a known person on a particular topic or in an aligned manner, it becomes a conversation. Most of the times, conversation winds around the familiar topics like politics, weather, family and all but sometimes, they dig on some intriguing topics. One such interesting conversation, that I had had with my friend was regarding duality in spirituality. His name is Amit and he is a very close friend of mine.

Last summer, I went with my best friend Amit ,to Himalayas. We were on a trek route above Mussorie, walking the altitude of nearly 10 kms on that particular day. We had those camping tents with us to stay anywhere, in any terrain, whenever we felt like taking a break. Well, after a long stretch of continuous trekking, we reached to a plateau like broad elevation, where we decided to pitch our tents. It was evening by that time and with the bonfire lit by our sides, we commenced our discussion of God and metaphysics.

Unarguably, intriguing mystic things fascinate every one of us. Discussion about God is one such open ended discussion, where it is difficult to sum up conclusively. It was only recently, that we have found this vibrating new inclination within us, to delve deep into the abstract discussions of metaphysics and even paranormal. Miles of away from the usual city traffic and lights, camping, just two of us, in the heart of that dense Himalayan forest, was in itself an adventure calling for the unknown. On the top of that, conversation about surreal, paranormal phenomena was adding the much needed thrill for such a camping. I could sense that heartfelt titillation along with the warmth of the fire. Little after then, we could see the sky studded with so many bright stars, amiss in cities. So, all in all, beauty of those surroundings tinged with our mystic conversation, was defining the moments in a unique sense of pleasure and utter satisfaction.

STRONG WORDS
Word Meaning
Intrigue arouse curiosity: There was an intriguing factor about on break of Corona.
Metaphysics philosophy of God: It is difficult to have visual evidences of metaphysics.
Follow-up Questions

Q. 1 What are your usual topics of conversation with your friends?

Sample answer: We usually converse about our daily routines and the mundane activities involved therein. If there are exams round the corner, then we have discussions of the same. In case of sports events, we discuss about our fitness and performance levels. On a normal day, we will be conversing about our teachers, peer group, work and so on.

Q. 2 Do people have friends in their later age too?

Sample answer: During the study period, school or college, students are immersed in an environment of freedom, joy and friends. After that, life generally takes a turn and that same student, once always occupied by friends, involves himself in family and work more. Due to this, a person is not able to devote the same amount of time with friends but they still remain as friends.

Q. 3 Where do you think, that art of conversation is useful?

Sample answer: Conversation is indeed an art. One has to master this with appropriate usage of words, conveying the most suitable and sensible meaning as a whole. This skill is very beneficial formally, in interviews and group discussions, where one has to articulate clearly about himself and the topic. It is also useful in resolving a contentious issue and furthering harmony and cooperation in a group or enterprise. Ample clarity in conversation is an essential tool for our overall survival in the society.

Q. 4 Can the style of conversation be made impressive?

Sample answer: Obviously, by engaging yourself in exhaustive discussion topics and regularly practicing the mode of conversation, one can attain the mastery in it. Enhancing one’s own lexical and grammar skills along with the practice speaking sessions can definitely bring improvements in fluency, coherency and meaning conveyance of the whole conversation.

Describe a person who has done a lot to help people. IETLS Cue card. Please find Sample Answer at level IELTS Band9. He is my neighbor Dr. Mehra. Best BAND7 IELTS Dehradun IELTS online simulator IELTS BAND 7 Coaching Classes

Sample Answer

(Level Band9) Today I’m going to talk about a generous person who is well-known for his sincere efforts to help people from all walks of life. He is my neighbor Dr. Mehra, a physician. I have known him since I moved to Dehradun in 2000.

Dr. Mehra is in his 50s and he runs a clinic in the city center. Notably, he is an alumnus of the King George Medical Collge, Lucknow. Apart from treating patients in his clinic, he regularly organizes health camps in remote villages of Uttarakhand. His team distributes free medicines to patients and gives valuable advice to people about how to lead a disease free life.

This is a great help for village dwellers as medical facilities in these places are very poor. He has changed the lives of thousands of villagers in Uttarakhand. His determination to improve the public health in inaccessible regions is praiseworthy.

In fact, he is a role model for me. I met Dr. Mehra in 2000. Since we are neighbors, we know about each other’s work. I often accompany him as a volunteer in his health camps. Of course, if I am ill, he is the first person I call.
