IELTS Speaking Part 2: IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card.
Describe an activity you recently took part in.
You should say:
- what activity it is
- why you took part in it
- how it was organised
and explain your feeling about this activity.
Recently I took part in a social activity which I would like to talk about for this cue card topic. It was a social campaign to inform everyone in our community about the vaccination for children. This was an important vaccination project that the government was funding and our objective was to inform everyone in our community so that children from 6 months till 5 years old get it for free from the designated centres on the due date. The awareness campaign was organised by our university and I participated in it to be a part of an important social cause. It was a 3-day long campaign and I felt really great to be able to deliver an important message to every single community member.
In fact, this was not the first time I participated in such an activity. My mother is a social worker and from her, I learned the importance of being a part of such great activities. Last month when I heard that one of our university teachers was looking for few students to contribute to this campaign, I did not hesitate to be enlisted.
Before we started knocking on the doors of each community member, a government organisation sent a three members’ team to train us. It was more like a professional training and workshop where we were taught about our duties during the campaign. We were handed over a list of our community members and their probable time of being home. We had to make another list with the name, address, child’s age and the type of vaccine they are supposed to be given. We had a supervisor in our team from the beginning of this campaign and he guided us whenever we needed his advice. I would say that the organisation of this campaign was quite through and structured.
Honestly, I felt so happy and contended about this whole activity. I knew how important it was to deliver the message to all our community members so that they do not miss their children’s vaccination. I thought it was a great social work which would be quite helpful for the members of our community and did not hesitate to take part in it. I have always felt quite excited and happy about being part of any noble and helpful activity and the vaccination campaign was no exception.
