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

Describe your favourite way to relax.

You should say:

  • what it is
  • when and how you relax.
  • how effective it is for you

And explain why you like this way of relaxation.

Sample Answer:
My favourite way to relax is bit strange and my parents often find it hard to believe that I love to relax in this way. Well, this is not the only way I relax but definitely, this is my favourite one. To me relaxing and serenity is related. So I close the doors and windows of my room and lit a low powered light bulb to cut the outside noise and bright light. I live in a busy urban area so it’s usually noisy around me.

Then I turn on the CD player and play either Pink Floyd or Enigma in a low volume. Then I close my eyes and try to recall my happy memories of my childhood. This gives me immense pleasure as most of my childhood memories are spellbinding and magical. If I spend about half an hour this way I start feeling a sensation that is utmost pleasant. I remain half awake and half asleep and an hour is good enough for me to get fully recharged and refreshed.

I usually do it at home, more specifically in my room. Whenever I feel stressed or depressed I try to relax in this way to eliminate my stress and depression. I would not say it works all the time but I find it very effective. I guess during this process I try to feel happy as I get lost in my childhood and that’s something I have psychologically accepted as a remedy to my depressions and mental stress. Since I have been doing it for a while and my body and mind have got adjusted with this process, it works like a panacea to me.

My second best way of relaxation is reading books or visiting a naturally beautiful place. But the one I told you is most effective for me.
