SAMPLE ANSWER

I am a bibliophile and love reading all genre of books. Today I am going to talk about a book that I loved reading. Although there are many I would like to read again, but I think Mahatma Gandhi’s autobiography, ‘My Experiments with the Truth’ has by far been the most impressive book that I have read. I remember I went to get a novel to read and randomly picked this one because I wanted to read Gandhi’s opinion on the entire freedom struggle. It was back in 2014, during my last year of college when I read this book.

The book is Gandhi’s autobiography, it includes special highlights on events that had a major impact on Gandhi’s life story. The book gives an inside view on how Gandhi shaped himself, what sacrifices he made and how he stood by truth even in the darkest of times.

One such event includes the day Gandhi fell ill, the doctors advised him to take some tea as it would help him in recovering faster. It was almost essential for him in his medical condition. But earlier he had pledged that he would not consume meats, spices, eggs or tea, as at the time some research suggested it to be harmful to the body. No matter what the doctors had to say, Gandhi did not consume his tea. I was fascinated by the strong determination the man had.

The story revolves around his life and gives an inner view on the reasons behind the actions taken by him as a leader. I loved the book because it taught me the most important lesson of my life: one should always speak the truth and be ready to die for it.

Mahatma Gandhi was surely a man of strong and true character and in my viewpoint, anyone who reads this novel surely brings home the idea of being a better person.

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.

Describe a subject you enjoyed studying at school.

You should say:

  • When and where you started studying it
  • What lessons were like
  • What made the subject different from other subjects
  • And explain why you enjoyed the subject

IELTS CUE CARD # DESCRIBE A SUBJECT YOU ENJOYED STUDYING AT SCHOOL

Sample Answer

Economics has been one of my favourite subjects since I was at school and was first introduced to this subject when I was in the 8th Standard. I was lucky enough to have the best teacher who taught me economics as she always had a manner of make it interesting. She never taught it like a normal subject but made it exciting by relating it to current situations and gave examples to explain the theory.
I had never thought that economics could be so interesting and invigorating and that is how the lessons used to be in school. We always had interactive classes where we were not only supposed to listen to the teacher but also put up questions and discuss them at length. No other subject was like this one as the others were more theoretical and based on certain principles. But economics was and still is a subject where one has to think out of the box and relate it to what happens in our day to day lives and all around us.
One thing I can say is that I thoroughly enjoyed the subject in my school and have pursued the same after completing my secondary education because of the practical essence and relevance this subject has in real life.

SAMPLE ANSWER ONE

There are more than seven billion people on this planet and not everyone is well known. Famous people are all over the world and we all like to follow them and know about them. Although there are quite a few personalities that I follow, one individual that I am a big fan of is Kailash Satyarthi. He is a social activist who has been working against atrocities committed in the society and has pledged his life towards the eradication of child labour.
He is a Nobel Peace Prize winner of the year 2014 and is the founder of the organisation called Bachpan bachao andolan (BBA) which translates to “Save Childhood movement”. He founded the organisation in late 1990’s and has been working as a socialite ever since. As we know committing crime is very easy in our country and due to poverty and lack of education millions of kids are forced to work when they should be at school and enjoying their childhood. A learned man, Satyarthi is a chemical engineer by profession. He left his lucrative career and he has liberated more than 80,000 child labours since he took the initiative.
In these modern times where the world is so selfish it is very difficult to come across a man who has done so much for the society without thinking about himself. It would be a great honour to meet a man of such stature and magnitude who has received so many accolades and awards for his relentless humanitarian work. His approach to life and selfless attitude is something that never fails to amaze me. He is a true hero and an inspiration for millions in my country.

SAMPLE ANSWER TWO

There have been many personalities I have followed but the one that has truly made an impact on my life has to be Oprah Winfrey. I believe she is a true example of how following your dreams can let you live a meaningful life. Being raped as a child and told that it is her duty to do the household work, she did not let these negativities hold her back. The fact that she believed that she is meant to be successful is what amazes me the most. The reason I really want to meet her is because

She signifies to be as a person who does not think of the issues ahead, rather the great work that needs to be done. This makes it so much more intimidating to meet her. And what I have learned about her is that she has actually lived a balanced life. I wish to learn from her the way of balancing the life and making difference in other people’s life.

I think the day I meet her I would ask her five advice for my life because I do trust that they will be great ones!

SAMPLE ANSWER THREE

If there ever is a famous person I would like to meet, it has to be Raghuram Rajan. He has been one of the most successful RBI governors our country had. Even more, he became the Economic Counselor and Director of Research of the International Monetary Fund, the youngest ever. What made all eyes turning to him is his prediction of the 2008 global crisis.

I am not an economist and neither do understand it well. But I really wish to understand what goes inside one of the most brilliant minds of our country. He has been one of those people who has actually allowed the economy of our country to boost. Over time, we all have seen that when his advice was given consideration, there were losses prevented. However, when they were avoided, we have paid the price.

I want to meet him and know his opinion on our country and what he thinks is the right thing for our country. There is something in me that tells that we as young people should definitely do for our country. I would like to interact with him and know how doing what I love can I do something for my country.
