Describe one of your neighbors

IELTS Cue Card Question 66 With Model Answer: 

Describe one of your neighbors.

You should say: 
  • what sort of person your neighbor is
  • do you like this neighbor
  • when do you usually meet this neighbor
And explain if this person is a good neighbor.

[You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you're going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]

Model Answer 1:
I live in Stuttgart in Germany and accompany my parents in a medium-sized apartment. I have a neighbour named Mr Adalric who lives in the next door of us.

Mr Adalric is a highly extrovert man with the look of an adventurer. He is around six feet in height and loves to be casual always in his attire. I have never seen him wearing any formal clothes even when he attends his office. But he is cautious about his hair and regularly combs them with a small hair comb which he keeps always in his pocket. Moreover, Mr Adalric is fond of kids as he does not have any kid. However, he is a jolly person with a deep voice and helpful too in many aspects.

I like Mr Adalric much for his benevolence behaviour and his extrovert nature. He likes meeting newer people and most of the time I see him talking with people whom he has never met before and once he told me that it is a hobby for him to get familiar with the unfamiliar people in his surroundings. Besides, he is the person who understands the almost every situation and comes to offer help without any conditions. He has helped me too in some of the situations and particularly in my study. Whenever he comes to visit us, he asks about my study and if I am in trouble with any of my subjects, especially English, he provides me with the directives to study and in some cases makes the texts and issues clear to me.

I do not have any specific time to meet with Mr Adalric. Since he lives on the same floor with us, I meet him whenever I am in need, particularly to understand my studies. He is available in his home after the evening and full days in the holidays. So, I do not need to make an appointment or to follow a calendar to meet him. Further, he frequently visits our apartment whenever he needs to take a cup of coffee or any other soft beverages since his ‘health conscious’ wife does not like him to take the beverages. As a result, I meet him almost every day of the week and enjoy great moments with him.

Mr Adalric is truly an adorable neighbour. Being an extrovert, he inquires about the problems of the people and supports them after his ability. But sometimes he feels shy when he fails to help the vulnerable and I have seen him apologising carefully to the people whom he could not help for his inability. He also takes as much care as possible to his neighbours and after that scheme, he teaches me sometimes with my tough subjects like general math, biological science and English. I am grateful to him for his unconditional support. Moreover, he sends birthday wishes to all of his neighbours and he also has wished me on my last birthday and presented me a nice binocular. He is a perfect neighbour I have ever seen.



Model Answer 2:
The human is a social being and cannot live alone. So, the necessity of neighbours in our life cannot be described in words. They are the ones who come to support in the time of distress. But unluckily, I have a neighbour who is not supportive at all. Thank you for the question and it is a privilege for me to describe the event here.

I am a student at a local college in Maharashtra, Mumbai and live in an apartment block here. I have a neighbour, Mr Daniel D’Suza. He is an introvert. He is a widower and lives alone in the apartment. He was in government service and now leading a solitary life. With his medium height, he has a dark complexion and never wears a smile. When we rented that apartment, I along with my mother went to meet him but he was not responsive to us. Later, we met with the other inhabitants of the block and came to know about him. 

To be straight, I cannot like a man like him. He is introvert and he completely has the right to be so. But he lacks the sense of courtesy. When someone wants to meet you, this is a normal trend that you will exchange some greetings, at least a nice smile. But such things were absent in Mr D’Suza. He was the same when he bought this apartment. But his wife, on the other side, was extrovert and loved to socialise. She died of a stroke and it was all of a sudden. When he lived with his wife, he did not love to talk with other people. If someone was in distress and asked for help to him, he simply turned deaf ear to them. His non-responsive attitude has brought some defame for him in the locality. For some mysterious reasons, he is silent always. He never talks with people unless he needs something from them. For such features, he is disliked by all.

I meet him rarely. But the experiences I have gained after meeting him were horrible. Usually, I love to talk with people and if it is a new person, I try to make a friendship with him or her. There are no hidden interests from my part in making a good relationship with people. Besides, I cannot stay silent for a single moment, I need to talk to someone. So, when I tried to talk with him on the lift, he did not talk at first and then suddenly shouted at me violently. I was shocked that how a man could be so rude. I informed the issue to my mother and she said that the man has some problems with his attitude. None of his neighbours has a good relationship with him. In fact, everyone avoids him even in social functions. After that day, I did not try to talk with him anymore and avoided him like the other people.  

I think a person who has such cruel features cannot be a good man. So, Mr D’Suza is not a good neighbour to me. In fact, he is not a good neighbour to anyone. To live in a society, you need to provide cooperation to people in their needs. If you do not cooperate, you will not get the same thing back. On the other side, it is also necessary to make a good relation with the other people. If you cannot maintain a healthy relationship with others, it will really become tough for you to be a good person or citizen of a country. Since he owns all the detrimental features of a human, I think he is a bad neighbour indeed.
