Cue Card: A expensive hobby you can’t pursue daily

IELTS Cue Card- A expensive hobby you can’t pursue daily

Describe an expensive hobby you can’t pursue daily
You should say:
• What it is
• Why it is expensive
• Why you wish to pursue it
And explain when you are planning on doing it in near future.

Sample Answer

Hobbies cultivate a man. There are lot of different hobbies like drawing, dancing, painting etc. that I’ve pursued since childhood. A hobby I’ve developed in my late teens is travelling.

Social networking sites today are flooded with people posing and writing about their vivid travel stories. This is inspiring young travel enthusiasts like me to take up bits and pieces from their side and have some amazing travel experiences. But, travelling isn’t a hobby that I can always manage, especially on a student budget. It turns out to be quite expensive. Travelling involves lot of expenditure on accommodation, transport and food etc.

Travelling is food for the soul. I think that everybody will agree to this idea. Travelling helps one adapt to different cultures and understand the people and places. It makes one open from the bondages of stereotypes and uplifts one’s horizons. On a personal level, travelling has helped me a lot. It has made me a more awakened person and helped me build my self confidence. One can travel both with friends and alone. I prefer travelling alone as it gives me a lot of time to pursue my own passion and activities which aren’t so often done on normal days.

I plan on going for a cultural trip to Pondicherry in the coming holidays. To make it possible I have been surfing the internet to find affordable hotels to stay. I wish to go there as the place has a rich French influenced architecture. It’s known for its historical monuments and special dishes. I plan on experiencing a part of their culture and their lives. According to me, travelling can be pursued by anybody irrespective of the age and gender constraints. It’s a hobby that one must cultivate.

IELTS Cue Card 2020 Questions # Describe a good news that you recently heard

A good news is something we all pray for. Something that always brings happiness into our lives. Good news could be on ourselves or something that we hear about others. This time we are looking at a cue card that was asked recently in the IELTS speaking test.

Describe a good news that you recently heard. You should say:

  • what was the good news
  • how did you received the news?
  • who was the news about?

also, explain your reaction on hearing the news.

SAMPLE ANSWER

We are living in times when it has become so hard for people to share the good news. Even when good things happen, people often start looking for even better things. But, this one time, I remember, I got a call from a very old friend of mine. We had not talked with each other in a while and initially, getting a call from her was in itself really good news for me.

But, as she went on, she told me that she had won the Toastmasters Speech Contest at National level and is all set to win it Internationally. The mere fact that my friend had achieved her biggest fear and has done something worth remembering for, made both of us cry the tears of joy. Toastmasters is an International Organization where people join in to learn the art of speaking.

As I know my friend, she had the stage fright for a very long time. Being part of the group and then winning a competition of speaking at the national level, brought not only happiness but also the feeling of pride in me. She told me the competition was to be held in Delhi and I was then living there. So, we met and celebrated together with her victory.

Cue card: A person who took a decision for you

IELTS Speaking Cue card: A person who took a decision for you

Describe a person who took a decision for you recently
You should say:

  • who this person is
  • what decision he/she took
  • when he/she took this decision
  • and explain how you felt about the decision

A person who took a decision for you

Sample answer

Decisions are an integral part of everyone’s life. Sometimes we rely on others for making a decision. Today, I’m going to talk about one such time.

I’m a final year student of Bachelor of Technology at Delhi University. Thanks to its outstanding teaching methods, my university has an excellent reputation among employers. Every year many renowned companies conduct campus interviews in the University for recruiting fresh graduates. Right from their freshman year, students look forward to these interviews and being placed in their dream jobs.

In last month’s campus interviews, I did really well. I was hoping to be selected by at least one company. To my surprise, I received two offer letters, one from Wipro, an Indian IT Company and the other from Siemens, a German Company. I was puzzled. I didn’t know what to do. So, I decided to discuss the matter with my dad. He has more than 20 years’ experience in the real employment world of information technology.

We had a long healthy discussion. He explained the pros and cons of working in Indian and foreign organizations. In the end, he suggested me to join Siemens. In a way, he took this decision for me, but I wouldn’t say that he forced me to accept his judgement. It was my firm faith in his ability and vision which inspired me to follow his words.

IELTS CUE CARD – Talk about a person who taught you something important

IELTS CUE CARD – Talk about a person who taught you something important

Talk about someone who taught you something. You should say

  • Who this person was?
  • What did they teach you?
  • When was this?
  • And describe what you learned.
Sample Answer One

Learning is a never-ending process. The first things we learn are to think, to talk, to walk, basic behavioural quirks that we adopt from our family and environment. Later on, in life, we choose to learn higher-level skills such as reading, writing, mathematical reasoning and skills classified as extra-curricular. Examples of those skills might be learning to play an instrument, handicrafts, learning to ride a bike, art, and video gaming etc. 

Now I will proceed to describe how a dear friend helped me discover the intricacies of braiding complex patterned friendship bracelets. This was back in the summers of primary school, my friend and I were next-door neighbours, and so quite naturally we used to spend all our time at each other’s houses. As 9-year-old girls are meant to do, our favourite pastime was drawing and playing on the swings.  

It was, however, one fateful day when my friend was messing around with some string, tying them in seemingly pointless and frankly rather obscure knots. I did not understand the point of her actions but sat down to watch her anyway. She kept tying knot after knot after knot, soon enough I discovered rationality to her pattern. And why, before my very eyes she produced a magnificent friendship bracelet!  

Made with a mosaic of diamonds I could not have told you how she achieved such a feat despite being present the entire duration of its creation.  

A day after that I demanded she teaches me. She was reluctant but agreed eventually, though she warned me that I would not be reaching her level of expertise for quite some time. And how right she was! It was a tedious process, learning the different types of knots, the ways to tie them, how the direction determines the shape, all with a dual sting thread. Eventually, I learned to handle more threads, become more experimental with the intricacies. And Before we knew it, the summer had ended.  This time we went to school with matching bracelets, for my final task had been to make her one to repay her for her patience, goodwill and friendship. 

Sample Answer Two

SAMPLE ANSWER

Life is all about learning. Whether it’s a new skill or some life lessons to live a more fulfilling life. All play a key role in our lives. Today, I’d like to talk about how I learnt to drive.

I’d always wanted to learn how to drive but my father insisted that I should finish my schooling first. So a week after my exams we made a plan for learning driving. We decided to get up early in the morning and set out to a huge ground located in the outskirts of the town. It was safe to practice there in the morning.

It was fun to learn driving. I felt on top of the world when every morning I sat on the driving seat next to my father. He never scolded me and always encouraged me with a positive attitude. He is the most patient person I’ve ever come across and even when I bumped into a tree he continued to motivate me and turned my fears into cheers!

At the end of a month’s training, I slowly started driving on the road. Eventually I became an expert and was able to drive in heavy traffic as well.

This training not only made my life easier and independent, but also gave me the opportunity to spend quality time with my father.
