IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card 508 with Model Answer:

Describe a place where you love to shop often.

You should say:
  • where it is
  • what type of place it is
  • what type of products you often buy from there
and explain why you love to shop from this place often.

[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 1:
I don’t really like to stick to any particular shopping place or market when it comes to shopping. So, I guess that I will have to do some kind of “lottery” to pick up one of those shopping places for the purpose of this particular cue card topic if I really want to prove myself “unbiased”.

And the “winner” is the “Shopping Wonderland”. Yes, the name of this shopping outlet is popularly known as “shopping wonderland” to hundreds of its customers in our busy hometown, very much on a regular basis. So, it is a fairly busy shopping place because it is actually located in the more busy and crowded part of our home town.

Now, this particular shopping outlet, some would prefer to call it a “departmental store” as well, is not exactly any other regular shopping place because it sits in a rather huge space, and it sells pretty much all kinds of household products. But, as far as I am concerned, I visit this place mainly to buy their toiletry products.

Of course, this particular store sells many other types of products as well, but I don’t really like to buy them from this particular store because I can get them even at a cheaper price from other places more often than not. In other words, price is a very important factor, if not the most important one, to me when it comes to purchasing any particular product from a particular shop or shopping place.

Of course, apart from the cheap prices of the products which I really need to buy, I prefer to visit this shopping outlet often also because I have been visiting this place for a long, long time. In fact, all of the staff there are like family to me because I have known all of them for such a long period of time. I like to visit this place often also because it is a rather large place, and I don’t really have to “wrestle” with other customers to find my products, like many other stores in my busy and crowded hometown.


Model Answer 2:
Before I begin describing the shopping mall that I often visit to purchase things that I need, I would like to thank you for the opportunity to let me talk about the topic.

The place where I love to shop often is a modern shopping complex located at the heart of the city where I reside. It is hardly a five-minute drive from my apartment.

It is a place that has everything I need, from fashion to groceries, fruits, electronics, shoes, travel bags, cosmetics, and even gift items. The complex is very well designed and it is easy to navigate around, which makes shopping there a pleasant experience.

One of the things I love about this place is the availability of a wide variety of products there. Whether I'm looking for a new dress or some fresh fruit, I know I'll be able to find it here. The complex also houses many international brands, which means I have access to a wide range of quality products.

Another thing that I appreciate about this place is the convenience. It is located at the heart of the city, which means that it is easy for me to get to. It also has ample parking, so I don't have to worry about finding a place to park my car. Additionally, there are several ATMs, food courts and a cinema; so, I can do all my errands and entertainment at the same place.

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.
