 SAMPLE ANSWER- 

Internet is an essential part for survival in the present day world. It has been a life-saver for me numerous times but here I can recall a time when the internet helped me handle a bad situation. I have the habit of keeping all the important information in my phone instead of my laptop. Last week, when I was busy studying for my exam, all of a sudden my phone’s screen froze due to which I wasn’t able to make any call or check my notes. 

I panicked as it was quite late at night and I couldn’t head to the market to get some professional help. My phone included all important recorded lectures and notes. I lost hope and had pessimistic thoughts in my mind regarding my exam. I started searching for a temporary solution to fix my IPhone. There were some solutions available on sites and I followed the steps in order to try my luck. 

I followed the instructions given and connected my phone to the computer. It asked for a software update and thought of trying it as I didn’t had any other option since all my important information including my admit card was in my phone. It nearly took two hours to complete the update and reboot my IPhone.

 Luckily, the phone restated and I felt a sign of relief at that hour. Though we keep on criticizing the internet and technology on daily basis but during that moment I couldn’t help being thankful to it enough.

Cue Card # A time when you didn’t share a truth with your best friend. Best IELTS Band7 Coaching in dehradun
SAMPLE ANSWER-     

Trust is considered to be an important tool in one’s friendship which takes time and diligence to rebuild if lost. Here, I’d like to talk about a time when I tried to conceal a secret from a friend which had a bad effect on our friendship. The scenario happened quite a while ago when we were in University. It was during our results when I tried to keep my best friend’s poor grades confidential as she was enjoying her cousin’s wedding at that time.  

As far as I remember, most of my friends were worried about their performance in the exams but my best friend had a different level of excitement since it was her relative’s wedding within two days. Though she was equally nervous about the results, she didn’t let her fear come between her happiness. When the result was declared, all of my friends cleared the exams with flying colors but unfortunately, my best friend result was not up to the expectations.  

I decided not to inform her about the result on a call as it might affect her joyful state of mind of the wedding ceremonies. But unluckily, she got this bitter news from one of our classmates. She was deeply affected by it as those results were going to have a major impact on our placements. 

Initially, this situation jeopardized our friendship and people tried to create misunderstandings between us. But after a couple of days, she considered my point of view and tried to look at it from my position. We later on, apologized and promised to never hide truth from each other, no matter how bitter it would be.

Cue Card # Describe a historical period/time you want to know more about.

IELTS Speaking Task # Cue Card

Describe a historical period/time you want to know more about.

You should say:

  • which period it is
  • how you know about this period of history
  • what its importance is in history

and explain what you want to know more about this period.

SAMPLE ANSWER-  

My country, India is quite recognized for its rich and prosperous history. One such historical period was the Indus Valley civilization that existed long back but its prevalence was recently revealed in the 1900s by an Archeological survey. It was believed to be the core of art and culture during those days. 

When I first studied about this civilization in class and the planning of this period’s urbanization, it captivated me to a great extent. It was the first time that I took interest in history while learning about this time period. I learned that even in that era when there were limited resources available, the people of Indus Valley civilization enjoyed a highly developed city life.  

This mysterious civilization was situated on the banks of the river Indus, the present day Pakistan. I think that it’s an important part of the historical culture as the town-planning and water management system which the people followed during that time is an excellent example for the modern world. Despite the absence of educational facilities, it is said that people who belonged to this time period had built well equipped sanitary facilities and harvesting system as well. When I further looked at the remains of artifacts of this civilization, I was actually convinced that citizens of this civilization led a comfortable and luxurious life. 

I’m keen to learn more this time period and what led to its destruction. Though the town had well managed farming and architectural construction, archeologists are carrying on their research related to the specific cause of its disappearance. It is said that today’s world has a lot to learn about urbanization and administration from the remains of the Indus Valley civilization.

IELTS Cue Card solved a problem

Sample Answer

 We come across many problems in our day-to-day life. Some people can find workable solutions while others may seek help for tackling their problems. Today, I’m going to talk about a close friend who gave an effective solution to my problem. His name is Rishabh Agarwal. He is from Haryana. He has a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering.

I’m the manager of a primary school in Mumbai.  It rains heavily in Mumbai in the rainy season which lasts from mid-June to early October. School kids cannot play any outdoor games during these months because playgrounds become slippery and muddy. The long rainy season affects children’s health and moods as well. It’s also not possible for kids to be in sport halls all the time.  I discussed this problem with Rishabh and asked for his advice to handle this situation.

He came up with a clever idea of having pedals installed in school desks so that kids can pedal in classrooms. I loved his creative idea and thought of implementing it in our school.  Within a month pedals were installed in five classrooms. It was an experiment to check kids’ response. To our surprise, children started using pedals regularly and the overall outcome was very positive. All students became physically active and their fitness and health levels improved dramatically. In studies too, kids did considerably well.

In my view, Rishabh’s solution was very clever for two main reasons. First of all, it was very practical. Secondly, it was not expensive. If the school had to spend a lot of money on this solution, I think it wouldn’t have been approved by the management committee. Sometimes a complex problem has a simple solution, we have to just strike the right note. I think those who use their knowledge in a practical way are better problem-solvers.

Some more ideas for this cue card
  1. You were getting sleepless nights. Your friend recommended making your own tongue twisters and automatically falling asleep in the process.
  2. Water glasses in your kitchen were full of hard water stains. You asked your friend for advice, who recommended mixing vinegar in your cleaning liquid. Amazing results.
  3. Your child/nephew/cousin dropped their curry on a newly painted wall in a temper tantrum. It was looking ugly. Your friend helped you out by creating a swirly crème and brown design on the wall. It looked professional.
