An important choice you had to make

IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card 439 with Model Answer: Describe an important choice you had to make in your life. You should say: when you had to make this choice what you had to choose between whether you made a good choice and explain how you felt when you were making this choice. [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: Life perhaps would be a lot easier for us if we didn’t have to make any choices in life. But, then life is not meant to be easy, so we are forced to make choices at some points in order to meet the demands of time, just like I did about a few years ago. I am not exactly an ambitious person who likes to achieve or acquire material things of life by hook or by crook. But, that doesn’t necessarily mean that I am a lazy person either. It is just that I don’t like too many complexities and commotions in and arou

Describe a game or sport you enjoy playing

IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card 438 with Model Answer: Describe a game or sport you enjoy playing. You should say: what kind of game or sport it is who you play it with where you play it and explain why you enjoy playing it. [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.

So, it is quite natural for me also to enjoy playing this great sport more than any others, even though I have played other sports once in a while. But, still, I would like to go ahead and talk about football here. I don’t think that there is any need to reintroduce “football” here since it is by far the most popular sport in the world, with a staggering number of more than 250 million people watching or playing it, but just for the purpose of some academic reference, football is a te

Describe someone in your family who you like

IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card 437 with Model Answer: Describe someone in your family who you like. You should say: how this person is related to you what this person looks like what kind of person he/she is and explain why you like this person. [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: Thank God that this cue card didn’t ask me to talk about someone in my family who I like more than the others because then that would be a disaster! After all, I like to give them the impression that I like them all equally, even though, in reality, that is not quite always possible. But, anyway, thank you for this interesting, and yet quite challenging, topic. The person in my family, I'd like and want to talk about, is none other than my youngest uncle. But, even though, he is an uncle to me, to whom I should show due “respect” as per th
