IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card Sample Questions

Describe a rule that you did not like in your school.

You should say :

  • what was it?
  • how did others think about this rule?
  • have you ever violated this rule?

explain why you did not like this rule?

SAMPLE ANSWER

School days have been the best days of my life and no matter what I believe we all have memories attached to them. They do bring nostalgic moments in us. I studied in a convent school and there were many rules but the one that I did not like was if someone had not the proper dress, they would be sent out of the assembly and delayed for the first lecture. Our school had prefects and their job was to make sure that we all were in our proper dresses. Even a tint of error and we would be thrown out. Being an average person, I never had those perfect shoes or dress and so most of the times I would be out.

I remember once it became so frequent that people accepted it as my nature. The reason I did not like this rule was that, at some point in my life, I had an inferiority complex because of this. Children would make fun of me because of this and we would fight. Because of missing the first lecture, I did miss out on some very important things that were taught and it did impact my studies.

Most of the people in my school had no issues with this rule. Probably, because they always did wore the right dresses and shoes. But, there were few like me, who used to be out because of our neatness. I remember making friends all the way during this time. We would laugh and giggle sometimes. But initially, it was quite rough for all of us and I believe there could have been a better way of teaching us the importance of maintaining a dress code.

SAMPLE ANSWER

I have watched many television series. As a kid, I liked Dragon Ball z, Pokemon, Lizzie Mcguire and others. Growing up I fell in love with Suits, Friends, Sherlock Holmes, How I met your mother and others.

Today, I’m going to speak about one TV series that is still close to my heart. Its name is Sherlock Holmes. It is the story of a detective, Sherlock Holmes, who along with Dr Watson, his friend, solves crime mysteries.

Many renowned TV actors have acted in this series. But, I loved the pairing of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Sherlock and Watson. It’s is perfect. Their co-ordination and dedication to the mission are commendable.

In every episode of Sherlock Holmes, one can find a new case that comes in front of Watson and Sherlock and then for the next one and half hours one gets glued to the screen in amazement. The complications of the plot, the suspense and the way the crime unfolds, all capture my interest.

Coming to how I feel about this series, it’s is a great program. I find it very entertaining and informative. It gives me a deep insight into the lives of detectives and the risks involved in this profession. At the same time, it informs me about the intricacies of crime cases and the efforts required to solve them.

IELTS Cue Card Sample Questions # Recent Shop

Living in cities or towns, we often see many shops opening up nearby. Gone are the days when there was only one shop and the entire clan was dependant on it. We now notice the opening of multinational brands and the coming of shopping malls in countries worldwide. The world has now truly become a global village. This time, we are looking at an IELTS cue card that asks you to describe about a recent shop that opened up in your city or town.

Describe a shop that recently opened in your city/country.

You should say:
  • what its name is
  • where it is
  • who the typical customers are

and say if you have bought anything from the shop. Why/Why not?

SAMPLE ANSWER ONE

New shops and international brands are paving their way into my country. Although India itself has got numerous outlets of international brands but they are mostly confined to metropolitan cities. In recent years, my city has seen an influx of international brands and one such company unveiled a new store recently.

It’s a new Lacoste outlet that has recently been inaugurated. With the traditional crocodile sign put on the clothing is a signature trademark and it is very easily recognisable.
The store is located in the heart of the city, right next to the cinema plaza. The store had been under construction for a while. It was only that when they put up ads in the newspaper saying “the world’s most favourite brand is now in your city” that’s when people realised, it is about time we put the rumours to bed.

The clothing company is a well known in the world and the quality of their products is second to none. It is a French company and all of their clothes are imported so majority of its customers are individuals that have selective taste in clothing or I can say it caters to a very posh crowd. The entire range of clothes is expensive but that crocodile emblem on the merchandise in itself tells a different story and is totally worth it.

Yes I did buy a shirt from the store. I always wanted one and they had an inaugural discount of extra 20 percent. From the moment I stepped inside the store, I had my eyes set up on a navy shirt with a white logo on the right pocket. It was very expensive but then again good things don’t come cheap. I have one more shirt to add to my party wear collection and when I do wear it, trust me I set fire to the rain.

SAMPLE ANSWER TWO

I presently reside in Dehradun, the capital of Uttarakhand. Dehradun is a beautiful city and has recently become one of the cities aimed at becoming a metropolitian city. This decision has led to many changes happening in my town. We saw the coming of Ola and Uber and then several constructions, like flyovers etc. But, along with it, there has been an upsurge in the number of shops in my town.

One recent shop that opened up in the center of the town and fascinated a lot of crowds is the “The Baby Shop”. It has a three-storeyed building with an amazing infrastructure and is the first shop in our city to be open 24 * 7. It is a great shop for babies with a wide range of items available necessary for babies until 10 years of age. Right from, cradle to clothes, play pen and including toys like a fighter plane etc.

Besides children, parents expecting a child or the ones with children below 10 years often visit the place. What is more beautiful and satisfying about the shop is the easy accessibility of items and a very kind staff. It was only a few weeks back that I had to visit the shop for getting a gift for my nephew. My nephew loves clothes and toys and I bought them from “The Baby Shop” at very reasonable prices. I still remember the smile she gave me.

Vocabulary

cradle – small bed for a baby

playpen – a portable usually collapsible enclosure in which a baby or young child may play

upsurge – a rapid or sudden rise

reasonable – fair and sensible

IELTS CUE CARD: A TOY YOU LIKED IN YOUR CHILDHOOD

IELTS CUE CARD: A TOY YOU LIKED IN YOUR CHILDHOOD

Talk about a toy you liked in your childhood.
You should say:

  • What it was?
  • Who gave it to you?
  • What it looked like?
  • Explain why it was a special toy for you?
Sample Answer

Toys are extremely precious for children and they are possessive about their favorite ones. As a child, I was lucky enough to have quite a few of them but there was one which I absolutely adored. It was a Barbie doll which was gifted to me by my parents.

I still remember that first advertisement of Barbie dolls in my country when they were just launched by Leo Mattel in India. It had a lovely music and displayed “the Happy Birthday Barbie”, which was wearing a pink gown with white polka dots. The doll had long golden hair and was even wearing matching pink sandals. I saw the ad every time it appeared on the TV and longed to have that doll myself. I was after my parents to get it for me which I didn’t get for a long time. Finally, I was gifted the very same doll by my parents.

I just loved everything about it- the dress, the hair and its beautiful features. I would comb it, bathe it and even made it sleep in the night. It was a special toy as it was different and unique as compared to any other doll available in those days. None of my friends had a Barbie which made me a proud owner of this English doll. There were extra dresses for Barbie with matching foot wear also available in the market and it was fun to change the dresses and make different hair styles. I spent most of my time playing with Barbie whenever i was home and it became my favorite possession.
