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.

Cue card #Something Which Cannot be Learnt in School

IELTS Speaking Cue Card: Describe something which cannot be learnt in school

Describe something which cannot be learnt in school
You have to say:

  • What is it
  • When and where did you learn it
  • How did you learn it
  • Explain what you use it for.
Sample Answer

Alma Mater is a place where one not only learns how to gain conceptual and theoretical knowledge but also to project himself by getting adequate training in personality development. Besides this, various extracurricular activities are taught to the students which are continued throughout life. However, I personally believe that the school does not teach us the traditional and moral values.The reason being that a child spends only around six hours in school and the rest at home.

Moreover, this is something which cannot be taught. It is imbibed in a human being as he/she grows with his family, siblings and neighborhood. This includes respecting our cultural values, giving due regards to women, elders and abiding the law of the land. A human being’s character builds up as he learns these peculiar qualities while growing up.

It is the prime responsibility of parents to set good examples for their children. I myself learnt these values from my parents and grandparents. These are to be absorbed as one grows witnessing his family members and elder people. These have become a permanent feature of my personality and I use them in my day to day life. Be it my home or my workplace or the time when I’m commuting in a metro train. I try to be as considerate and compassionate as possible while dealing with the old and the women.

The busy schedule of parents nowadays is depriving our generations of these values which are of paramount importance to the individuals and the society as a whole. If these values are not taught, it will lead to creation of a misguided youth who will not be the responsible citizens of society. A person may be successful in his career, which makes him financially strong but till the time he is not respectful to the society he is not a responsible citizen of the nation.

IELTS Cue Card # Describe a historical place

IELTS Cue Card, Describe a historical place

Describe a historical place that you know about.
You should say:

  • What the place is
  • Where it is located
  • What is the historical significance of the place
  • And describe your experience of the place.
Sample Answer

I have been travelling frequently for the past one year and in this time, I have visited many places of historical significance. There are many places that have blown my mind away with their architecture and historical significance but none so more than the Ajanta and Ellora caves.
The caves are an ancient monument that date back to 2nd century BCE. They are approximately 30 in number however, more were added to them later on in the coming centuries. According to historians they are monasteries and worship halls of Buddhists monks. They have greatly influenced Indian art that followed in the coming years.
They are located in Aurangabad district of Maharashtra (Western India). The caves include paintings and rock-cut sculptures which are very well preserved. They are first of their own kind as experts say the paintings and gestures made by the sculptures show emotions. Vivid colours were used to make wall paintings while fine clay was used to make statues.
There are several accounts mentioning the caves in the history however it was not until the British rule in 18th century that they were discovered hidden in the forest. They are a UNESCO world heritage site and have had a strong influence on artefacts as well in the spread of Buddhism in south East Asia. They were used as monasteries for monks who were travelling around spreading Buddhism so apart from cultural significance it also has a lot of religious importance too.
Well it was very mesmerising to be honest. The caves are still very well preserved and to see such art and different colours being used in it during that time not only describes the importance of colours in our life, but also how advanced Indians were in art and craft during those times. As someone who is fond of history all I can say is, I was mind blown by those caves and no amount of splendid photography can do justice to such marvellous structures.
