leisure time IELTS Cue Card Dehradun

Sample Answer

My hometown Dehradun is a small but vibrant city. Locals have access to a wide range of entertainment facilities such as sports centers, shopping malls and cinemas etc. Today, I’m going to talk about a very popular place which is visited by thousands of people every day.

It’s a huge shopping complex called the Pacific Mall. It was opened to the public in 2015. The building is located in a posh area of Dehradun. Young adults normally use their own mode of transport like car, bike or scooter to reach there. Some families prefer public transport as parking is quite expensive in the complex.

This shopping center is equipped with a 4-screen cinema, lots of branded shops, multicultural food courts and children’s play areas.  Concerts, music and dance competitions are also organized regularly. Depending upon the interest and the purpose of visiting the mall, people can decide what they wish to do in the complex. They can watch the latest films, enjoy delicious food from China, Thailand and Italy or participate in cultural programs. Shoppers can also get a fabulous shopping experience. Children too can have a lot of fun in designated play areas.

Another special feature of this place is that people can meet renowned writers, musicians and chefs on gazetted holidays like 15th August, 2nd October and 26th January and festivals. They can even give suggestions about who should be invited in the future. The public is duly informed about the upcoming events through adverts in local newspapers. Certainly, all these facilities make it an ideal place for all age groups. It’s is worth visiting.

IELTS Speaking cue card: A language lesson you enjoyed

Talk about a language lesson you enjoyed
You should say:

  • when it was
  • what it was about
  • what you did in the lesson
  • and explain why you enjoyed this lesson
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 in two groups. Some of us became customers while others became waiters. We practised 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.

Talk about a time when you teamed up with an old person

Sample Answer

Teaming up with an elderly can be a memorable experience. Today, I’m going to share one such experience with you.

I was in 10th class. The preparation for board exams was a never ending process. I found it quite hard to stick to a monotonous routine. Finally, the exams got over but they had drained my energy. All I wanted was a change in my daily routine. My parents were working full-time. They took many days off during my exams. Naturally, it wasn’t possible for them to take me on a holiday. At last, I asked my grandfather if he could come and take me to the village.

To my surprise, he came the very next day. I was very excited about my holidays. I packed my bag and we happily set off in the afternoon. We reached the village late in the evening. My grandfather showed me the house. Even though it was dark, I could clearly see some work was going on in the garden. My grandpa said we would work together tomorrow.

The morning was beautiful. After breakfast I went to the garden. It looked a little rusty and needed a make-over. My grandpa was building a bench. I observed him for a while and then joined him. The bench was ready in the evening. We decided to place it in front of the pond. Our next plan was to plant some new colourful flowers. He had already bought pots of many different shapes and sizes. So, I helped him in filling them in with soil and compost and planting flowers like marigolds, lilies and dahlias etc. We kept all plants at different places. I dug out a fire pit too.

Our garden renovation project lasted for more than a week. I loved it as each day was different. We could see the progress of our work which gave us a sense of fulfillment. Together we transformed a dull garden into a lovely outdoor space. All in all, it was the best time I’ve ever spent with an old man. I will never forget those holidays.

SAMPLE ANSWER

 

For a very long time, I wanted to learn the art of photography. As a kid, I would rejoice clicking pictures from my parent’s phone or for that matter any body’s phone or camera. It was recently that I bought for myself a DSLR to learn photography. It is a Nikon D5300, with two lenses. The 18-55 allows me to shoot photos at a closer distance while the 70-110 helps me by clicking far off photos.

Apart from my keen desire to master photography, I have been a blogger for quite a long time and being a blogger, it is very important for our content to be plagiarism free. Adding to this, a blog with only content often leaves the readers disappointed and gives a sense of a book with only text. Something, most people do not prefer to. So, once my content started sounding genuine, I wished for better photographs. This could have been possible only if I knew how to capture moments. Or else, my work had to depend on someone else.

It has been 8 months since I got the camera and have been using it extensively almost everywhere. From the solo trips that I have taken to my office parties, from the friends gatherings to our crazy fun nights. The camera has helped me in capturing the moments of life in a more beautiful way.

Owning a camera teaches an individual multitude of things. The most important of which I believe is how to see things differently. When one clicks different photographs of the same thing, he or she realizes the different sides of the same thing. Also, I believe one must learn as many skills as he or she can in their lifetime.
