IELTS Cue Card Sample 218 - Describe a TV or radio presenter

IELTS Speaking Part 2: IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card.

Describe a TV or radio presenter.

You should say:

  • Who is s/he
  • What programme he/she presents
  • How he presents the program

And explain why you like / dislike him/ her.

Sample Answer:
Radio programmes use the presenter more frequently than TV programmes in our country and one such radio presenter whom I like very much is (…say a name…). S/he presents the weather updates in every 2 hours in the ABC radio. We, as listeners of the radio programmes, know very little personal information of the radio presenters and the person I am talking about would be around 25 years old and is a full-time radio presenter. S/he is currently presenting the weather updates, which is a program called ‘Weather Today’ and I find his presenting the program very informative and interesting.

Since s/he presents the weather updates, s/he mostly depends on the weather reports provided to him/her and sometimes s/he makes his/her own thought and some humour in the presentation.

S/he has an attractive and clear vocal and that makes the information easily listenable. He has a different style of presenting the weather related data and mainly because of that the ‘Weather today’ program has gained its popularity. S/he describes the overall weather condition based on different locations of the country and then gives some tips to the listeners.

I find his/ her weather report interesting and informative that’s why I like this radio reporter very much. Sometimes I tune on to the ABC Radio channel to learn the updates of the weather and s/he is the one to present that.   

Follow-up Questions:
-   What are the advantages and disadvantages of being a good presenter?
- What are the necessary qualities of a good presenter?
