A conversation which was not interesting to you

IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card 477 with Model Answer:

Describe a conversation you took part in but which was not interesting to you.

You should say:
  • when it was
  • what type of conversation it was
  • whom you had this conversation with
and explain why you were not interested in this conversation even if you took part in 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. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]



Model Answer:
My elder uncle is a very intelligent and educated person. But, unfortunately, he is probably a bit too much intelligent and educated for my liking. In fact, most of the conversations between me and him would eventually turn out to be a rather boring affair or not interesting at all. So, today, I would like to go ahead and talk about one of those “not so interesting” conversations with my uncle that I had in the recent past.

By ‘recent past’, I mean to say, it was not more than a month ago or so when I had this conversation, and that too on a very hot and humid day. Now, as far as I am concerned, I just don’t like hot and humid weather, and therefore, a conversation needed to be extremely interesting to hold my attention for more than 10 minutes. But, my uncle, as usual, didn’t really care about what I considered to be interesting and what not on that day also as he went on talking about how he debated about some of the laws of physics when he was a university student.

Of course, my biggest mistake was, while having the conversation, that I actually told him that I had made a big mistake by choosing to study “commerce” instead of “science”, and that I wouldn’t be able to have a secured financial future – not, at least, in the current sluggish economy of our country – without becoming an engineer or medical doctor. The conversation had lasted for almost 30 to 40 minutes, but it felt like I was in it for ages, as I was really struggling to hold my attention to that rather “demoralizing” conversation.

Anyway, I found the conversation to be dull and uninteresting, mainly because it was rather “pessimistic” in nature. I found it uninteresting also because it was not just the right time or place to have such a “complicated” conversation since I was more in the mood of enjoying some outdoors instead of remaining stuck with a “geek” alone in his residence.
