Describe a child that you know

IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card 414 with Model Answer:

Describe a child that you know.

You should say:
  • who this child is and how often you see him or her
  • how old this child is
  • what he or she is like
and explain what you feel about this child.

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


Model Answer:

I love being around children since they are nothing but some bundle of joy. So, thank you indeed for this lovely cue card topic which allows me to talk about a child – a boy rather - whom I have known since the last couple of years.

The boy, I am talking about, is 4 or 5 years old, who happens to live in the same neighbourhood as me. Being a little bit on the chubby side, this little boy can be too cute and sweet to be ignored by any person, no matter how stranger of a person he or she really is.

The parents of this little boy are very much aware of his “friendly manner”, so they just let him be just the way he likes. Since both I and the boy live in the same neighbourhood, we meet and say hello to each other at least a couple of times a week when his parents take him to a local park where I also like to take a walk from time to time. One thing which really puzzles me about this boy is that this little boy never allows anybody to touch his hair. Yes, he is that serious about his hairstyle!

By the way, the parents of this little boy are also helpful persons. In fact, they helped me fix my car on a number of occasions since I, as a woman with very little technical IQ, don’t know much about how to fix an old car. In return, I have also shown them the courtesy to do babysitting for their boy a few times when they had gone away for some emergency needs.

I think that this little boy is a really sweet kid who never seems to know how to bother or annoy other people. Besides, I also feel that the parents of this little kid have raised him really well because I have never found him talking to other people or asking them any questions without asking for their permissions first.

I would like to thank you for this excellent topic that enables me to talk about the person I love and admire the most. My mother has done many things in my life that have made me admire her.

And that’s exactly how I succeeded in achieving a goal recently, which I otherwise thought was not possible. Now, calling “riding a car always” - no matter wherever I go and how short the distance is - is a “bad habit” that might actually offend some people, but it certainly felt like one to me. I found out that I was gaining extra pounds in my body, and my fitness was deterioratin

When I was browsing the CNN.com (in fact I visit the website at least twice a day), a news story titled - ‘How to lose a job in 30 seconds’ attracted me.
