IELTS CUE CARD – Describe a work of art you saw

Describe a work of art that you saw
You should say:
– when you first saw this work of art
– where you saw it
– what it looked like
– and explain your feelings about it.

Sample Answer

Art expresses the best things in life- simple and sweet, complicated and unknown. Today I’m going to talk about a newly unveiled local piece of art. I had the pleasure of coming across this masterpiece last week while going to the market- I just saw it in passing but that didn’t cease to amaze me.
It’s a magnificent statue of a great Indian ruler, Maharana Pratap and his loyal horse, Chetak. The king is holding a long spear in his right hand and the reins of the horse in his left hand. The horse has one of his front legs up in the air. The total height of the statue would be around three and a half meters. Craftsmen have used two different types of marbles: pale white for the platform and black for the main figures. The colour combination looks impeccable.

Coming to how feel about this work of art, it’s is an exquisite example of craftsmanship. Sculptors’ attention to detail is praiseworthy. Right from the size of the spear to the hooves, eyes of the horse, every small part of the statue is sculpted carefully. This work of art has increased the beauty of the region. When I look at it, it reminds me of our rich history and culture. We’ve forgotten the sacrifices of our warriors in protecting our nation from foreign powers. Such works can greatly help inculcate a sense of patriotism among young adults and children.

IELTS Speaking 2017 Cue Card: A person who knows a lot about something

IELTS Speaking 2017 Cue Card: A person who knows a lot about something

Describe someone who knows a lot about something

You should say:

  • Who he/she is
  • Where he/she lives
  • What he/she does
  • Explain why you think he knows a lot.
Sample Answer:

I’ve met many knowledgeable people in my life. Today, I’m going to talk about a person who knows a lot about automobiles.

His name is Gagan Agarwal. Originally, he is from a small town in Panjab but his family moved to Delhi 5 years ago. So, now, he lives in Delhi with his parents.

Gagan works as an executive car designer in Suzuki, a renowned automobile company. He is appointed in the head office in Delhi. He completed his Bachelor’s of Technology in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Delhi in 2015. Thereafter, he was selected by Suzuki.

I feel that Gagan is a towering intellectual. Despite being a fresh graduate, he was offered a place in a world-class organization. Many senior people struggle for years to join such companies. He made it in the first year of his career. That’s is definitely a remarkable achievement. Unquestionably, the credit for this goes to his in-depth knowledge of various disciplines of mechanical engineering and his creativity.

Another reason why I think he is brilliant is that he is an active learner. Normally, when anyone starts working, they don’t pay attention to improving their knowledge or skills. But, this is not the case with Gagan. He is always willing to expand his knowledge and learn new skills. He often reads magazines and attends seminars to keep him up to date with the latest technology. All these things make him different from others. I can’t stop admiring him. He is a role model for me.

Recently Bought Cue Card

SAMPLE ANSWER

E-commerce has come a few years back and changed the way we shopped, at least it has done for me. Recently, I bought a camera online. For a few months, I had been doing my research on the different cameras and found Nikon D5300 a really nice choice. I bought it from Flipkart and it arrived in really good condition. On the first day of its arrival, my friends and us, we all went hitchhiking along the streets of Delhi. We began with Chandani Chowk and then Rashtrapati Bhavan, moving on we went to Akshardham Temple and finally ended our day dancing at my friend’s house.

We clicked amazing photographs and made memories for life. The best thing about the camera was that it was really easy to use and very lightweight. For a very long time, I had enjoyed clicking photographs on other people’s camera and after working for an MNC, being able to buy one for me was a proud moment.

I had been planning on beginning a travel blog for a very long time. The coming of the DSLR had been perfect in my life. With it, not only was I able to click better photographs and learn the use of DSLR, I started getting really nice content for my blog. Looking back at it, sometimes I wonder how would have I done all of it without my camera!

Vocabulary

IELTS Speaking Cue Card: A plan that did not work

IELTS Speaking Cue Card: A plan that did not work

Describe a plan you made but it did not work. 

You should say:

  • what the plan was
  • when you made it
  • why it did not work
  • and explain how you felt when your plan did not work
Sample Answer

Planning is the essence of life. If plans are made carefully and comprehensively, in most cases they work but it’s not necessary that every plan we make will be successful. Today, I’m going to talk about a plan that failed.

I am a science student. Last year I passed my 12th class with excellent grades, A+ in all subjects. After completion of my final exams, my father contacted an overseas education consultant to discuss the courses for my higher education. Since my academic performance was very good, the counsellor gave us many options like Batchelor’s in Science or Business Administration or Computer Applications in Canada, Australia and Europe. It was a difficult task to choose from such a wide range of options. I and my parents thought about all of them. The final decision was to go to Canada for Bachelor’s in Computer Applications, commonly known as BCA.

I received a letter of acceptance for a 4-year course in Computer Science from the University of British Columbia. It was an achievement for me. At that time I didn’t know this happiness was short-lived and my dream will shatter like a vase.  To my surprise, it was an expensive course. We were expected to arrange about two million rupees for my tuition fees, accommodation and other expenses. My father applied for an education loan in a local bank in my hometown. Initially, the bank manager seemed quite willing to approve the loan but later on he kept on delaying the process. Sadly, my parents couldn’t arrange enough funds for my fees and we missed the deadline of fee submission.

You can imagine how I felt when I lost this opportunity. I was heartbroken and helpless. Had our loan been approved on time, I’d have become a graduate of one of the most renowned universities in the world. My parents supported me a lot and helped me come out of this painful experience. Now, I’m pursuing BCA in India. May be I could go abroad for a Master’s in Computer Science. This time I’ll make sure that I have sufficient funds before applying to any college or university.
