SAMPLE ANSWER

I am a bibliophile and love reading all genre of books. Today I am going to talk about a book that I loved reading. Although there are many I would like to read again, but I think Mahatma Gandhi’s autobiography, ‘My Experiments with the Truth’ has by far been the most impressive book that I have read. I remember I went to get a novel to read and randomly picked this one because I wanted to read Gandhi’s opinion on the entire freedom struggle. It was back in 2014, during my last year of college when I read this book.

The book is Gandhi’s autobiography, it includes special highlights on events that had a major impact on Gandhi’s life story. The book gives an inside view on how Gandhi shaped himself, what sacrifices he made and how he stood by truth even in the darkest of times.

One such event includes the day Gandhi fell ill, the doctors advised him to take some tea as it would help him in recovering faster. It was almost essential for him in his medical condition. But earlier he had pledged that he would not consume meats, spices, eggs or tea, as at the time some research suggested it to be harmful to the body. No matter what the doctors had to say, Gandhi did not consume his tea. I was fascinated by the strong determination the man had.

The story revolves around his life and gives an inner view on the reasons behind the actions taken by him as a leader. I loved the book because it taught me the most important lesson of my life: one should always speak the truth and be ready to die for it.

Mahatma Gandhi was surely a man of strong and true character and in my viewpoint, anyone who reads this novel surely brings home the idea of being a better person.

IELTS-CUE-CARD-#SEARCHED-FOR-SOME-INFORMATION-ON-THE-INTERNET, IELTSBAND7 DEHRADUN

Sample Answer

I am an avid user of the internet. I use it almost on a daily basis. I wouldn’t lie I am quite reliant on the internet. I recently came across the Indian railway website and a special feature of the site is that it allows visitors to check the live status of the train. I was quite awestruck as I wasn’t even aware of this service launched by the Indian railways. It is a very useful website and it came in quite handy during those troublesome times when my mother came to visit me and I didn’t have any information about her coming to visit me.
At first I looked on the website of the Indian railways and a pop up came up asking me to install the app on my phone. I promptly installed the application on my Iphone and proceeded to look for the information. At first it wasn’t quite clear where to look but the help section in the app proved to be quite useful. It guided me step by step and gave me live updates of the train. The information was quite clear and what astonished me the most was that you can make bookings through the app as well.
Well my mother isn’t a frequent traveller and more often than not she is accompanied by someone or the other on her travels. Out of the blue she decided to come and visit me and I was informed about her plans quite late. Her train was meant to arrive at Delhi railway station by 10:30 pm and by the time I got there I was already late by 15 minutes. To my surprise, no information about the train was available and nobody was present in the enquiry booth. I started looking online and came to know that the train was late by 1 hour.
Firstly, I was greatly relieved that I hadn’t missed her and that she is still on board. I came to know of the arrival time and live status of the train through the app. It also gave information about the platform on which the train was meant to arrive and I made my way to the platform instantly. After waiting for almost an hour the train arrived and I picked her up.

Cue Card: A expensive hobby you can’t pursue daily

IELTS Cue Card- A expensive hobby you can’t pursue daily

Describe an expensive hobby you can’t pursue daily
You should say:
• What it is
• Why it is expensive
• Why you wish to pursue it
And explain when you are planning on doing it in near future.

Sample Answer

Hobbies cultivate a man. There are lot of different hobbies like drawing, dancing, painting etc. that I’ve pursued since childhood. A hobby I’ve developed in my late teens is travelling.

Social networking sites today are flooded with people posing and writing about their vivid travel stories. This is inspiring young travel enthusiasts like me to take up bits and pieces from their side and have some amazing travel experiences. But, travelling isn’t a hobby that I can always manage, especially on a student budget. It turns out to be quite expensive. Travelling involves lot of expenditure on accommodation, transport and food etc.

Travelling is food for the soul. I think that everybody will agree to this idea. Travelling helps one adapt to different cultures and understand the people and places. It makes one open from the bondages of stereotypes and uplifts one’s horizons. On a personal level, travelling has helped me a lot. It has made me a more awakened person and helped me build my self confidence. One can travel both with friends and alone. I prefer travelling alone as it gives me a lot of time to pursue my own passion and activities which aren’t so often done on normal days.

I plan on going for a cultural trip to Pondicherry in the coming holidays. To make it possible I have been surfing the internet to find affordable hotels to stay. I wish to go there as the place has a rich French influenced architecture. It’s known for its historical monuments and special dishes. I plan on experiencing a part of their culture and their lives. According to me, travelling can be pursued by anybody irrespective of the age and gender constraints. It’s a hobby that one must cultivate.

  • What made the subject different from other subjects
  • And explain why you enjoyed the subject

IELTS CUE CARD # DESCRIBE A SUBJECT YOU ENJOYED STUDYING AT SCHOOL

Sample Answer

Economics has been one of my favourite subjects since I was at school and was first introduced to this subject when I was in the 8th Standard. I was lucky enough to have the best teacher who taught me economics as she always had a manner of make it interesting. She never taught it like a normal subject but made it exciting by relating it to current situations and gave examples to explain the theory.
I had never thought that economics could be so interesting and invigorating and that is how the lessons used to be in school. We always had interactive classes where we were not only supposed to listen to the teacher but also put up questions and discuss them at length. No other subject was like this one as the others were more theoretical and based on certain principles. But economics was and still is a subject where one has to think out of the box and relate it to what happens in our day to day lives and all around us.
One thing I can say is that I thoroughly enjoyed the subject in my school and have pursued the same after completing my secondary education because of the practical essence and relevance this subject has in real life.
