IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # Favorite Song

We all listen to music, it is for all of us an escape from reality. The times when we feel sad about things, when we feel happy, most often than not we try to express through music. Let us today have a look at a cue card that talks about favorite song.

Describe a song that you like.

You should say:

  • What is it.
  • How often you hear it.
  • What types of people listen to it.

and explain why you like this song.

I really love music and over the years there are lot many songs that have come up to inspire me and help me to get out of the rut that I am living in. But, the one song that I really fell in love and have enjoyed over the years is, “Both Of Us by BOB and Taylor Swift”.

The song is about the people who are trying to fulfill their dreams. It talks off their struggle, their emotions and how they feel when the world rejects them. The singer says that he is there for all of the people who are trying to fulfill their dreams. It is about how it is not about just lifting yourself from rut but also the people near you.

I love this song because in some ways it helps me to stay focused and move on towards my dreams. It is very motivating and the background music is amazing. I remember hearing this song on a loop when the days are tough and I am not able to do anything. Because it is on these days that I can fully relate with this song.

Most of the people hear to it, most probably the ones who are bothered about something or are trying hard to achieve something in their lives. It is that powerful, that strong, that you can actually feel powered hearing it.

favorite song


Our film industry is famous for making songs and we have produced some great songs of all times. But, the one song that helped me in so many different ways was
“Brothers Anthem”. The song is talking to an individual and is persuading him or her to believe that they have the potential and that they love God and now they need work so hard that even God, rises up and asks for his or her wish.
The reason that I love this song is because it is very positive and motivating. It does not talks about what you need not to do but  rather what you have to do for becoming successful. And more importantly, it tries to explain the essence of life. It is truly amazing and one could just go about listening to it again and again.

I remember during my training days, there were times when I was tired and did not knew what to do, there were times when I could not understand anything and in those times I used to listen to this song in a loop. For some reasons, this song gives me the motivation to move ahead in my life, to cross all barriers and just focus on my goal.

I think most of the people listen to this song for the same reason. It has got high beats and when you listen to it in a speaker it gives you the Goosebumps to go out and achieve something.

IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # Book That Influenced You

Describe a book that had a major influence on you.

You should say :

  • what the name of the book and the author is
  • how did you get to know about it
  • what is the main story of it

explain why it played such an important role in your life

Whenever I get time I try to read books ranging from fiction to non fiction and then travel books to sometimes autobiographies. But, the book that tremendously influenced me in my college life was “Archies comic books”. The characters of Archie Comics were written by John L. Goldwater. The comics have a very long history, starting from around 1939 up till present.

The story of the comic revolves around Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead, Josie, Kelvin and lots more. It is all about the lives of an average teenager, what are the problems they face, the kind confusions they have to tackle, how they balance their work and their studies and then what is it about love and friendship. There are so many more emotions with archies that one feels as if it is all happening in front of you and you can relate to it. So, we all have friends and family and then people we are jealous of and then things we do just for ourselves. There is this fight for making a career out of ourselves and a desire to be loved.

However, what influenced me the most and made me take decisions I won’t have taken other wise, was the character of Betty. She is friends with everyone and is a loving daughter and sister. She likes to help the homeless, read to the senior citizens, and rescue wounded animals and birds. She loves cooking, playing sports and make her own clothing. She runs small business here and there and then she loves animals. She does all of it, no matter how much trouble it causes her. Apart from all of this, she is a above average in academics.

Book That Influenced You

And then she loves Archies and is best friends with Veronica. This character of her inspired me to be something. I mean she had it all, she was good in studies, had friends, was doing things  and having good life. It was then that I realized that we all can have good lives. And just because I am studying does not mean I cannot have a job and then just because I have work does not mean I cannot have friends. Betty’s character allowed me to open up to all new possibilities. I remember, taking up a job and working on it. And that job has helped me a lot. I now try to be involved in more extra-curricular activities and make sure that whatever I do is par excellence.

She also taught me to be happy and enjoy life and in the midst of everything do things for oneself. There are lot of things that people learnt from Archies but for me it was the Betty’s character that just changed the way I looked at things.


After the cue card are the follow up questions. So, if there is a cue card like this, you can have follow up questions as given below –

How often do you read books?

I love reading books and read them almost every day. I have dedicated some time for reading books and ensure that I get to read a novel or may be magazine during that time.

How books can impact on a man’s life?

I believe it depends on how and what kind of books you are reading. So, may be a book or child abuse has no affect on someone who had a very nice past but may be someone who had felt it, could just relate to it and do things to make one’s life better. In that way, books make an impact. Because they allow you to figure out unanswered things about yourself and may be motivate in so many ways. So, if you read a book by Gandhi, you would most probably prefer saying the truth and then if you a read a book by kalam, you would just go out and give your best.

Name some of the famous writers of your country?

Our country has got some good writers and the ones people are crazy about would be Chetan Bhagat, Durjoy Dutta, Ravinder Singh, Rashmi Bansal, Aruna Nair and few others. It was Chetan Bhagat who started writing novels which struck to the minds of people and the language was such that more and more people started reading novels. Apart from these, some of the great writers of our country include, Premchand, Harivansh rai bachan, Arundhati roy, Vikram Seth, R.K Narayan and more.

Have you ever thought about writing a book?

Yes, but I think I have left it to the quote that I read. It was like ,” If it does not comes out of you automatically, if it is not something you feel like doing again and again, there is no point of doing it”. And about writing book, it will be like that. I will write a book but only when it is straight from my heart, when I would just not stop to write it and the only thing in my mind would be that book.

How reading books is different from watching movies?

Movies have more impact in a sense, that you can see exactly what the characters are doing and for someone who cannot relate well to the characters by reading, audio and video are better things to do.

IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # Favorite Website

 

Describe a website you often browse.

 

You should say:

  • what is it
  • how long have you been using it
  • give details about the website

Why do you love the website?

Sample Answer

I have been using internet for now about 6 years, out of which I think 3 years I have used it extensively, visiting lot of websites and doing research and lots of fun work. There have been many sites which I love to visit, but I think the one that I go back to when I am not able to find anything else, is youtube.com. I believe it is one of the most amazing sites to be made in the history, because there are so many opportunities over there. You can learn lot of things from the website and then you can earn lot of money from it.

I have been using youtube.com since past four years, I believe. With so many videos about events being uploaded onto it, it becomes very exciting to use it. So, there is this video about Steve jobs and you can hear him. His Stanford speech, his interview about Macintosh and his opinion about how life is lived. It is exciting because it seems as if you are actually interacting with the other person. And then there are video lectures by some great personalities. You get to learn and the best part is that it is for free. You learn because you want to and you enjoy it. I think the freedom that youtube gives is completely exciting.

Even more, people can now upload their videos and if they are able to bring in lot of viewers, google pays them and someone who has talent, it is such a great opportunity. You get to be your own boss and be creative.

favorite website

Youtube.com was founded by Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim and the domain was activated on February 14,2005. The idea behind the founders was to be able to upload videos and share it with their friends. What was thought to be just a website where people could simply share their videos, turned out to be a great startup. It was in around 2006 that google acquired the website and since then it has been merged together with lots of google products like google+.

I think what makes me and so many people fall in love with the website is surely the freedom that it gives. You get to learn things and implement them and then earn lot of money out of it.


How long have you been using Internet?

I started using internet when I stepped into the college, but I remember, it was two years from then that I actually started using internet for lot of things. So, I would just go out and listen to lot of those videos and read the Wikipedia pages. For the initial two years, I used internet only for facebook and when I had to make presentations, but later in college I came to know about the importance it plays in our lives and have been using it extensively since then.

How has internet changed your lifestyle?

I would say it has made me more enlightened. So, earlier I was limited to the resources that I had, so the teachers and the people I used to meet in daily life. But now, it is more like, the approach from just adjusting with the average has changed to going for excellent and becoming excellent. There are no boundations anymore.

What do you think could be the possible uses of internet in the future?

My personal opinion is that our lives will revolve around internet in the future and that is for sure. So, we will be able to see automatic cars that work entirely on internet. It might be possible to figure out the emotions of the other person, just by scanning their face to the scanner and internet will find out the results. So, may be people will get to know what the other person is feeling. It might even be possible that we are able to figure out what is necessary to buy in a particular month, and may be internet will help us in finding out a good budget.

IELTS Cue Card # Dream House

We all want to live in a kind of house that motivates us to be something and do something. The kind of house that we enter and feel like home and where we can relax. Now, everyone has their own idea of a dream house. Let us today have a look at some of the possible answers related to a cue card about dream house.

Describe a house or apartment you want to live in.

You should say:

  • What it would look like?
  • Where it would be located?
  • What facilities it would have?

and explain why you want to live there.

Sample Answer One

Home is where the heart is. We all have dreams and things we want from our lives. It’s ok to be materialistic in life and there is no harm in having some luxuries. I was born and raised up in a valley surrounded by hills so I’d like my dream house to be ideally located somewhere in between the hills. The location of the house will be a semi urban area as there are certain places in the hills that are secluded and there are no facilities available for miles. I’d like my dream home to be located in Mussoorie, a small hill station resting on the foothills of the Himalayas in northern India.
The house will be a medium sized bungalow with two floors, a front and a back garden and have all the modern day amenities. The building will be designed as such that all the windows of the bungalow will overlook the Doon valley. The architecture will be of Victorian era as it will give a very colonial look to the place. The ground floor will have a big common room adjoining a modular kitchen and a bar which will have spirits from different parts of the earth. The climate is cold so all the windows of the bungalow will be double glazed to provide insulation and protect us in the harsh cold weather. The upper floor will have a big master bedroom along with two other guest bedrooms.
As I live in the city, so I’ll use this house as a holiday home and to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Located in nature’s lap it will be a perfect relaxation spot and a perfect holiday. Once in my latter years of life, I’d like to retire there and live a calm and peaceful life in a serene environment.

dream house

Sample Answer Two

We all as humans dream fancy about our houses. So, there are some who want all the luxuries in their house while some prefer living close to nature. I want my house to be a mimic of nature. So, I want a small waterfall in my house wherein I can take bath and then I want my house to have lot of flowers and be surrounded by trees. So, that in the evening when I wish to sit down, I should feel calm and serene from inside.

Then, I want my house to have a library as well. Library of the books that I have already read, so it will be more like a collection of books that I love and could offer others to read and in the library there will be my study table and in one corner will be the place where I could look out of window and see the entire nature at its best and have some thing to drink or relax. There will be part of my house, where I will allow anyone to come in and sleep over and have food just for free. Because, I want people to travel and travel with entire safety. With nothing to worry, I want them to explore this beautiful world.
Also, in my house I wish to have a beautiful field wherein I could go for jogging or play some games. I don’t wish for the most expensive house in the world but I wish for the house that is the most special for me.

Sample Answer Three

Everyone has lot of dreams about their house. I too have. I wish my house to be a duplex building with spacious rooms and corridors. It is very important for me to be able to move freely and I wish to have ample space even after placing the furniture. The house should be well ventilated and the view from outside the window should be of something close to nature. I would love to have a balcony in my house with my bedroom facing the south side from where I could smell the fragrance from the garden. At the night times, I will place a chair on the balcony to enjoy the night views, especially the moonlit nights.

Although I like natural places, but for my house I would like it to be in the middle. So, somewhere where it is not very far from the city neither too close to the town. It should have the feel of a city life with no troubles that it brings along with it, like lot of traffic and noise pollution. Even more, the house should have all the modern amenities. It should have a telephone connection with which I can connect with the entire world and then there should be Internet.

Also, I need a garage wherein I can keep my car and the roof of the house should also be large as I intend to plant some small plants on the rooftop garden. Even more, it is very important to have good quality fittings, tiles and necessary elements in the kitchen and bathrooms.

Ultimately, I want to live in a big house wherein I can have a feeling of a house and can roam about freely because that is very important.
