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

Describe a family photograph you remember.

You should say:

  • When it was taken
  • who were in the picture
  • when it was taken

and explain why you remember this family photograph.

Model Answer:
The family photograph that I really like and remember well is the one which was taken almost 20 years ago. This photograph was framed and enlarged by my father and it is still hanging on the wall of our drawing room. This photograph was taken when I was only 3 years old and at the 6th marriage anniversary of my parents.

My father, mother and I were standing in while my grandparents were sitting in front of us in this picture. The picture captured the memory of a very happy family. The time when this picture was taken, I was very little then and I don’t have any particular memory of this event. Back then camera was very rare in our country and I heard from my mother that a camera man was hired to take the photo of this event. The picture was taken in the garden of our house and my grandparents used to live with us at that moment.

My grandparents have passed away and this is a revered memory of them. I still look at this picture and feel sad not to have them with us now. I was very little and I still look at me in this photograph with bewilderment. This is the picture that gives me the memory of a happy event, happy family, and innocent me. As I notice this photograph very often at my home, I remember it very well. This is in fact the only picture I have of my pre-school age. So this is very important and memorable for me.
