IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer # English Lesson

Learning is always more fun when someone teaches it brilliantly. Often students who stop studying are the ones who are not able to either connect with the teacher or the way of teaching. This time we are looking at a cue card that talks about an English lesson that the student enjoyed.
Talk about an English lesson you enjoyed. You should say –

  • who gave the lecture?
  • when did you attend?
  • where did you attend?

also, explain, why do you think the lecture was enjoyable?

SAMPLE ANSWER ONE

School days have been a packet of good and bad memories for me. There were so many subjects and I did not enjoy studying all of them. My favorite was English. I liked the stories and the poems, the characters and how things evolved in them. But, the first time that I understood the joy of learning English was when Swatantra sir taught us. He was our English teacher in class 10th and has been one of the best teachers.

In one of his lectures, he asked us to become the characters of the chapter and everyone had a role to play in it. Coming on stage was very difficult for all of us and then saying those lines, even more. When some of us learned the lines of the chapter, he taught us the art of feeling and expressions.

The lecture is still imprinted in not only my mind but the minds of many others because it taught us that learning has to be fun and it is not about being able to answer those questions in exams but also about understanding the concepts. One of the main reasons it was enjoyable was because it involved all of us.

SAMPLE ANSWER TWO

The corporate world is amazing and just like any other world, the initial years are the best years of it. When I joined a corporate company in my country, they provided us with the initial 6 months of training. In those training days, we were not only taught the technology part but also the soft skills. In one of the lectures, a woman came into our room and asked what we thought of her.

To all our surprise, we had no answers and she went on to say that often we do not express ourselves in order to avoid offending other people. Moving on, she divided our entire class into four parts and held a quiz. We had grammar quiz, vocabulary quiz, authors quiz and so much more. When the session got completed, she said, well this all that I had to teach you.

The reason I enjoyed the lecture was that we could find out what we already know. There was more of learning than repeating. For example, most of us knew what noun is and so there was no point in her teaching that. It was this smartness of her that really made a mark on me. More importantly, we all were starting our careers, the initial years and she said when she was about to leave, work hard but do not forget to enjoy life. She taught us self-confidence and the true way of leading life.

  • who he/she is
  • where he/she is from
  • how long you have known him/her
  • and explain why you think he/she is an interesting person.
Sample Answer

Today, I’m going to talk about a foreigner who I think is extremely interesting.

I work as a software developer in a multinational company called Capgemini. At present, we’re working on an international project and there are many foreigners in my team. I’ve a healthy relationship with all of them but I particularly like my team leader.

His name is Martin Henze. He is from Germany. Martin has a Master’s degree in Computer Science from the Technical University of Munich. I first met him in April 2015 when I went to Munich for attending a conference. It’s been almost three years since then.

In my view, Martin is a captivating person. He has many personal and professional attributes which make him special. Professionally, his in-depth knowledge of computer programming and problem-solving skills differentiate him from others. He also has effective communication and presentation skills. His excellent rapport with his colleagues and leadership skills can’t go unnoticed.

Personally, Martin has a pleasing personality. He is very kind and generous. He never shows off his seniority and treats everyone equally. All of us can share our views freely with him. If anyone has a suggestion to improve something, he always listens to them. In my view, developing all these skills is not at all easy. One has to work really hard to develop them and be like him. In short, Martin is my professional role model.

IELTS Speaking Cue Card: Describe a time when you laughed a lot

Describe a time when you laughed a lot
You should say:
• when it was
• where you were
• who you were with
• and explain why laughing is important.

a time when you laughed a lot IELTS Dehradun

Sample Answer

Generally, I don’t laugh a lot. But, today, I’m going to talk about a time when I couldn’t control laughing.
Last Friday was my close friend Gurdeep’s 21th birthday. He is my childhood friend. We’ve been together for almost 10-12 years. As it was a special occasion, we wanted to celebrate it differently. But, none of us was interested in going to a sophisticated café or restaurant and partying there. Without making any great plans I invited Gurdeep and 2-3 common friends to my room to spend some quality time together.

At around 7 pm, everyone was there. While chatting one of us suggested to watch a newly released movie of Amir Khan, a famous Indian actor. There was no objection as such. So, we decided to go ahead with his suggestion.

The name of the movie was Three Idiots. The story revolved around 3 friends and their struggle to fulfil the dreams of their parents. The main objective of the film was to highlight a major problem of the Indian society i.e. parental pressure. Most parents don’t let their children choose a career. They just want them to become engineers or doctors. The trauma which young students in India experience after completion of their secondary school is beautifully picturised in this movie. There were a few serious scenes in the movie, but, in general, the whole film was full of comedy. We laughed a lot that day.

Coming to why laughing matters, there is an old adage: “Laughter is the best medicine.” And, now, health benefits of laughing are scientifically proven. Laughter reduces stress levels and boosts our immune system. It can bring a positive change in our life. In short, we should laugh and smile daily to lead a happy and healthy life.

IELTS Speaking Cue Card: A time when you moved to a new school

Describe a time when you moved to a new school
You should say:
• when it was
• where you moved to
• why you moved there
• and explain your feelings about this change.

Sample Answer

Like many other children I too had to change my school when I was young. Today, I’m going to share one such time with you.
My father was an officer in the Indian army. His job involved frequent transfers from one place to another. I was in 7th class and my dad was posted in Dehradun. At that time I was studying in Army Public School, Dehradun. One day he received his transfer order for a city called Jodhpur. It’s a historical city in Rajasthan state of North India.

The children of the majority of army men in India attend central schools which are either run by the army or central government. Whenever government employees are ordered to relocate, their kids move to these schools. The process of changing school for children is normally simple and straightforward. Once you reach a new place, the kids can start their school immediately. For me that was around April in the year 1999.

This was a newly established school. Most of the facilities like swimming pool and playgrounds were still under construction at the time of my arrival. I did take some time to fit into the new environment, but soon enough I felt like I really belonged there. I made some great friends and had a great time overall.
