IELTS Cue Card Sample 432 - Describe someone who is similar to you

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

Describe a relative/ friend / family member who you think is similar to you.

You should say:

  • who he/she is
  • what he/she does
  • what others think about him/her

And explain how he/ she is similar to you.

Sample Answer:
Well, people often say that I have many striking resemblances with my elder brother John. If I have to choose someone whom I consider to be like me, I would also choose my brother john. His full name is Alfred John and he is 4 years senior to me. He is an architect and working as a project lead in a large international organisation for the last couple of years.

His physical appearance, height, body structure and complexion are quite similar to mine. I can recall two/three events when a distant relative thought I was John. People often make this mistake especially when I wear formal dresses (like my brother most of the time does) and they look at me from a reasonable distance.

Apart from the remarkable outer similarities between us, we have many common interests and similar ways of thinking. We like the same type of foods, music, movies and sports. We are in fact really good buddy when we play together or compete others. We have common interests like our passion for gardening, reading, travelling and collecting coins. We both love to learn new technologies and that makes us common minded. Sometimes he gives his opinion in many family & political issues that I find  quite as the reflections of my thoughts.

To my parents and others, he is a great human being and an example of an ideal son. Apart from my mother others think that he is quite exceptionally brilliant! My mother still considers him as a fragile kid who needs here affection and advice to survive.

I consider him as a brother only lucky people can have! To me, he is a friend, a mentor and an example in life. The most important similarity I wish to possess is the morality and kindness he has for others.
