IELTS Cue Card Sample 373 - Describe an important event in your life

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

Describe an important event in your life.

You should say:

  • what is it
  • how old you were then
  • wat happened

and explain why this was an important event in your life.

Model Answer:
Well, I have so many important events in my life and I can remember many of them. However, I would like to talk about the most auspicious ceremony of my life, my marriage, which happened in December 2012.

When I got married, I was 26 years old. Since I belong to a traditional and orthodox Hindu family, it's more or less like a religious and family festival. We invited most of our friends and relatives and the celebrations started three days prior to the event. We had to arrange all the amenities to the guests who came by; such as hotels to stay, food and drinking arrangements and we had to make sure all of them were pretty satisfied. However another biggest challenge I faced was the raising of fund for the occasion. Fortunately everything went well and the day is still a wonderful experience to think about.

On the flip side, the greatest reason why that day is rather important is because, ever since then, I witnessed a dramatic change in the way I live. I had to become more responsible and after all, I got someone to share my life together. I gradually realized, the biggest part in life, is to become shoulders and shade, to someone who is important to us, especially at the time of crisis. I would like to conclude by saying that now I am happily living with my parents, wife and son, and my marriage was the first significant step towards this journey.
