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

Describe someone you know who made a wrong decision.

  • who the person was
  • what the situation was
  • what decision they made

and explain why you think it was the wrong decision.

Model Answer:
My friend Robin made a wrong decision that I still do not support and feel sorry for. Robin is one of my close friends whom I met in my elementary school. After that time, he has become one of my very good friends.

He has a natural talent for art and his arts and sketches have been highly praised in different art competitions. I remember he won the first prize in an art competition when he was only 12 years old and in this competition, there were many matured competitors from university level. I was a great admirer of his arts and I always knew he would become a great artist someday.

But to my wildest surprise, after he passed the board exam, he got admitted in B.B.A. instead of art school. That was indeed shocking news for me and I could not believe the news after I heard it. I thought that he was destined to be a famous artist. Maybe he was pressurised by his relatives and parents to take such a wrong decision. To me, that was a fatal error he has ever made.

It was a wrong decision because he has chosen a major for study which would not be interesting and attractive to him. He has not taken this decision wisely and has considered about getting a better job instead of nurturing of a natural talent he has. In the long run, he would regret his decision and I still find no reason for his taking such a wrong decision about his life.
