Model Answer:
Thank you very much for the opportunity to let me talk about a class rule that I actually liked. It was about being present at the right time at the class. This was the most impressive rule that I liked most in my school days in Nha Trang – a coastal city in Vietnam. In fact, the rule helped me a lot to be punctual in everything. This was the very first lesson from the school that if you cannot be a punctual student, you would be unable to do anything in your life. This cue card task is a nice one and I am glad to have it in my share.

The rule of time management was imposed by the school authority. It was a private English medium school in the city and followed various rules and regulations. The most important factor was to get admitted in this school. Each of the students had to pass admission tests and had to sign a bond that they will follow all the rules of this school. So, following the rule was hard for me in the early part of the school but later I got habituated to them.

Honestly, the feeling was irritating at first. I made late to reach the school as I did not have any idea how the rules were followed. I was warned seriously and my parents were asked to meet the principal. It took about one month for me to adjust to the situations. But I was able to cope up with the first rule.

The rule helped greatly to the class. It taught punctuality to the student. Actually, it was the very first lesson for all the students. And everyone tried their best to follow it. The classes began and ended early. Moreover, we also learnt about managing time and dealing with the moments. Everything turned helpful for the students in the later part of their life.

"Describe a class rule that you liked in your school/college." 

In your IELTS speaking part 2/ candidate task card test, you can answer the same question from different perspectives. Few of the useful approaches are here to make you decide the best one. Or you can also develop your own answer. Here they are:

1. I loved the way of attendance in the school here in Allahabad, India. Teachers used to utter the roll number of the students in a serial and they had to reply loudly to ensure their presence. It was a great system. Often some naughty kids used to shout louder to create some funny moments in the class. But if the teacher did not understand the matter, they were punished for the shout.

2. Teachers in college usually do not assign any homework because this is a mature level. But we got a teacher following a different rule. He asked the students to submit homework every day in his class. Though some of the students did not like the rule, I loved it. In fact, home works help students to get engaged with the academic activities at their home. Majority of the guardians also welcomed the matter.

3. I always feel proud being the student of the University of Potsdam. I have learned all the necessary rules of life here and it was the greatest achievement of my life. I liked a specific rule that students need not carry all their textbooks and other study materials every day in the classroom. It helped me to attend classes in a relaxed mood.

4. Real-life teaching in college is adorable. The rule to keep mobile phones minimum was one of such lessons for life. Attending at Colombia University in New York City was an amazing experience for me. They taught some strict rules and I practice them in my life. Before knowing the rule of mobile phone use in the classroom, I used to keep it on and answered phone calls during the class. Now the habit has changed greatly.

5. Wearing uniform is a must for everyone in school but the flexibility regarding shoes was interesting. I was in love with the rule and used to wear black-coloured sandals instead of black shoes. In fact, in Australia, wearing shoes during class hours is made optional. A student can wear some decent footwear to attend classes.

Model Answer 1: Transportation is the most important mode of communication and if the roads are not well constructed, the entire transportation process gets spoiled and development process is hampered.

The main highway of our locality was built around 15 to 20 years ago and it has connected the locality with the main city which is about 20 kilometres away from the countryside we are living in. But now it is almost ruined and there are ditches across the road that has made the road bumpy. When it rains, the rain waters clog on the centre of the road and make it muddy.
