IELTS Cue Card Sample 220 - Talk about an advice you gave someone

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

Talk about an advice you gave someone.

You should say:

  • What was it
  • Whom you advised
  • How you did it

And explain how you felt about it.

Sample Answer:
In our life, we often give advises to others in times when we feel that’s necessary. This is a basic human nature to give advice and share thoughts with others. I gave many advises to others, mostly to my friends and relatives, and one such advice I still remember and feel good about was the one that I gave to one of my classmates when I was in the college.

I advised him to continue his study no matter what. The friend whom I gave advice was (…say a name…) and I talked to him for more than 3 hours. He one day told me that he had been planning to quit the college and get involve in some kind of job to support his family. That was, in my opinion, a very wrong decision as it would ruin every possibility he has in his career and he would have to work on low-level jobs for the rest of his life. I advised him not to drop out from the college and study hard. I showed him some of the examples where others are supporting their family even after continuing their study. I told him that it would be very tough and sometimes you would feel like abandoning the college but don’t even think of doing it. I also advised him to manage any part-time job in the local library or to talk to our teacher about his condition.

After few days, he told me that he had given some serious thought about it and won’t quit the college. I felt overwhelmed and happy to hear that. He talked to our course teachers and one of the teachers arranged him a part time job. He was happy and he finally finished his graduation from one of the prestigious universities of our country. Now he is working in a respectable government office and he is still grateful to me for the advice I gave him. I felt very well when I found him continuing his study and in fact, he was a bright student. I still feel very glad to be able to give him an advice that proved to be very helpful for him.
