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.

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.

  • why you bought it?
  • how long have you been using it?

recent bought is an ielts cue card sample answer to ensure students have enough material to practice for ielts speaking section.

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.

  • who gave it to?
  • how you used it?

also, explain, why it was special for you?

SAMPLE ANSWER

Birthdays have been really special for me, they told me the number of people who loved me. But, for me, the best gifts have been the ones that were without any reasons. One such gift that I got as a child was that of a diary and a pen. It was gifted to me by my brother on Rakhi. It was a nice diary, the one with colorful pages and the pen had an elite favor.

I remember, a note on a page it was written, for your love of writing, I wish you write more and write well. I have writing diaries since then and improving my skill. It has been around a decade since I first started writing and sometimes when I look back upon those writings it really makes me feel good. Good for the journey that I have traversed in all these years.

That first diary, I remember writing all the new stories that I had in my mind for myself. Sitting across my window, it was beautiful. I still have that diary with me. The reason, it is very special for me is because it just showed a new aspect of me as an individual. I could write, that is beautiful for me.
