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.

IELTS cue card: A TV documentary you watched

IELTS cue card: A TV documentary you watched

Describe a TV documentary you watched that was particularly interesting.
You should say
• What the documentary was about
• Why you decided to watch it
• What you learnt during the documentary
And explain why the TV documentary was particularly interesting.

Sample Answer

I recently watched an amazing documentary that left a lasting impression on my mind. It’s called Kurt Cobain – Montage of Heck.
It is based on the real life story of the legendary musician and the lead guitarist of the band, Nirvana. The documentary is well-versed and depicts various aspects of his life. It describes his struggle against depression and drug addiction. It is heartbreaking to see his downfall which eventually led to his death at the age of 27. The documentary was released 2 decades after his suicide.
Kurt Cobain is one of my favorite musicians. I came across the documentary while reading an article that was published about him. The reviews were quite applauding and thoughtful. The critics praised the movie to their heart’s content. I was really impressed. So, I decided to watch it.
The documentary is an inspiration for the entire young generation today. It depicts the journey of a young talented musician who becomes addicted to drugs and eventually ends his life. The movie shows the struggle of an individual suffering from mental illness and his fight to overcome the trauma. Apart from this several personal audio recording and juvenilia are also added in the movie.
The documentary doesn’t only describe the man as a rock and roll saga and typical doomed artist but also gives an insight into his artistic expressions and his infamous relationship with his wife, Courtney Love. It taught me that the choice to be successful or unsuccessful lies only and only in my hands and as an individual one has to learn to differentiate as to what is preferable or not preferable for them as they grow up. Overall, it was an overwhelming documentary. I will surely recommend it to everyone.

IELTS Cue card: Describe something you got for free

IELTS Cue card: Describe something you got for free

Describe something you got for free.
You should say:

  • what it is/was
  • when you got it
  • how you got it
  • and explain how you felt about it.

Sample answer:

Things for which we don’t have to pay have their own charm. Today, I’m going to talk about one such time when I got something for free.

I live in Dehradun. Last week I planned to go to Chandigarh to visit a close friend. She loves toffees and chocolates. Whenever I visit her, I buy some chocolates or a small present for her. But, this time I forgot to take anything for her.

On the way, the bus stopped for some time. I hurriedly got down and bought a box of chocolates. The journey was quite long, I was hungry too, so I took one bar from the box. When I unwrapped it, I saw a Domino’s Pizza coupon of 1000 INR. It was quite hard to believe first, but when I checked it thoroughly and called the given number, its validity was confirmed.

One can imagine how I would have felt. Certainly, I was more than happy. When I reached Chandigarh, my friend and I went to Domino’s. We used the coupon which I found in the bar. We ordered one big pizza, cold drinks and dessert – almost everything for free. We had to pay a small amount only. We enjoyed the meal and returned home. It became a memorable day for both of us.

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.
