IELTS Speaking cue card: a good news you heard about your relatives. Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in dehradun

Sample Answer

I am very close to some of my relatives, especially my aunt and her son. I share a strong bond with both of them. Today, I’m going to talk about a happy news which I received about my cousin-brother.

I live in Dehradun and my aunt lives in New Delhi. Last Sunday I went to New Delhi for some official work. Despite having a tight work schedule, I managed to go to my aunt’s house for some time in the evening. She had prepared a delicious dinner for me. During dinner she told me about my cousin brother’s selection as a senior manager in a Five Star Hotel in London. Currently, he works as a manger in Hotel Hyatt, a luxury hotel, in New Delhi.

I felt ambivalent when I heard this news. On one hand, I was very happy about his achievement. He has worked hard to reach that level. This job offer was a reward of his hard work and perseverance.  On the other hand, I was sad because he is the only child my aunt has. She would be alone if he went to London. How would she live without him? All these questions were coming to my mind. To be honest, I didn’t discuss these concerns with her. It was their personal decision to accept or reject the offer. I had nothing to do with that. I wholeheartedly congratulated her and came to Dehradun the next day.

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.

Cue card: A language lesson you enjoyed

  • when it was

  • and explain why you enjoyed this lesson

A language lesson you enjoyed

Sample Answer

I’ve always had a deep fascination with languages. It certainly stems from the skills of my school teachers who made our lessons memorable.  Today, I’m going to talk about a language lesson I loved.

I was in 8th class. Our school provided classes in many foreign languages like German, French, Japanese and Italian etc. I opted for Japanese because my father recommended it to me. My first Japanese lesson was so much fun that I still remember almost everything about it. When our teacher entered the class, she greeted us in Japanese. She didn’t translate it in English or our local language. Initially, we were puzzled but then she drew the sun and two kids on the blackboard. We understood the meaning and all of us repeated the greeting after her. Then, the teacher opened a big box in which she had kept many things like chocolates, cold drinks, tea and a bottle of milk etc.

She started taking them out of the box one by one. She was saying the name of each item in Japanese and we were listening to her and repeating after her. Later on, the teacher just showed us the objects and we were supposed to recall their names. Everyone was actively participating in the lesson. In the next stage of the lesson, the teacher taught us how to order milk, tea or coffee in a Japanese café. She divided us into two groups. Some of us became customers while others became waiters. We practiced all the words that we learned in the lesson in a very interactive way.

Not only me but all my classmates enjoyed the lesson. I found it very interesting because of the way it was delivered. The teacher created a friendly and stimulating learning environment. Its pace was also perfect for our age group. If we hadn’t been involved in the lesson, it would have been a boring lesson. All in all, I can say that this first-class boosted our confidence immensely and motivated us to learn Japanese.
