A person who encouraged you to achieve a goal

IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card   500   with Model Answer: Describe a person who encouraged you to achieve a goal. You should say: who this person is what goal it was how he or she has encouraged you to achieve the goal and explain how useful this person's encouragement was for you to achieve the goal. [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: Sometimes, all we need is just a little encouragement from someone to do better and become successful in life. 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.

[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 you for choosing this interesting topic for me. I would be more than happy to talk about a place where I used to play as a child. It is something that I am willing to do again and again because it takes me back to some of my best memories. Now, the place, I want to talk about, was nothing but just a regular playground which was neither too small nor big. It was an open space, so anybody could visit it at any time without any restrictions. There were a number of other open spaces like this in our small town, but what made

When you did not tell a friend the whole truth

IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card   498   with Model Answer: Describe a time when you did not tell a friend the whole truth. You should say: when it was who this friend was why you did not tell this friend the whole truth and explain how you felt about 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: Well, I am not sure about others, but I have sometimes avoided telling the truth, be it the whole truth or just the partial truth, to my friends. As I look back now, sometimes I had a good reason for that, and sometimes I did not. Today, I would like to share the story of one such occasion with you. To be honest with you, during my high school years, when I was just a young kid, I was not aware of the virtue of telling the truth no matter what.

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: Well, I am not exactly a very bright student, but still, I have managed to help some of my classmates occasionally with their studies. Today, I would like to talk about one such occasion when I helped one of my classmates in completing a math assignment. It all happened about a few years ago when we were junior college students. This classmate of mine was an otherwise good student but he wasn’t really that good in college algebra. On the other hand, I somehow used to understand college algebra a bit better than other students, and this good classmate of mine was
