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

Describe a leader or politician who you admire.

You should say:

  • Who is s/ he?
  • What is so appealing about him?
  • What type of leader is he/ she

and explain why do you admire him /her.

Model Answer: 
The leader I really like and admire is (…say the name of a politician or a leader you know about…) who had great contributions to make our country a better place. He was a mainstream politician for a long and was involved in active politics from his school life. He had great contribution in our freedom fight as well as in several other activities for the betterment of our nation. He lived from 1940 till 2000 and his death was a great loss for the nation. 

He was an honest and brave politician which has become rare in present days. He never compromised with the evil power of the politics and foreign powers. He had risked his life several times and with his bravery, he had bought some advantageous changes in the country. He was an idol for the nations and for his honesty and bravery he is a well-known figure in the world. 
He was an active member of the (...say a political party name…) and never longed for power or fame. He could have easily gained a powerful position in the country but he had always led a simple and yet exemplary life. 

I admire him for his unmatched contribution for the country and for the nation. We need many leaders like him and I regret the fact that we have only very few leaders like him in our country. He was an ideal leader who has put his personal benefits away while he thought for the benefits of the country and the nation.  
Alternative Answer:
As a nation, we are proud to have many legendary and visionary leaders who had shaped our fortune and devoted their lives and time to build the country. Among those impressive leaders and politicians, I would pick (...say a famous leader's name...) as my most favourite leader whom I really admire and respect. He is such a popular and beloved leader that I have found that most of the people like and admire him. He possesses a very high political position with really immense power and yet he has chosen to lead such an ordinary and poor life that it is possible only by a dedicated, honest, good hearted and completely honest leader. While he could have made a great fortune and could have exercised his power like many other politicians and leaders, he has chosen the honesty, integrity, responsibility and truth as his virtues.

The most appealing part about him is his honesty and fierceness for the truth and just. He does not fear anyone as long as it is to establish the just and right. Because of his invaluable contribution and dedication to many positive changes have been made in our country. I, like many others, like him because of his honesty, truthfulness, and fight for justice, dedication, patriotism, and benevolent attitude to the poor people. He is a rare politician in this era of corruption and selfishness. The world needs more leaders like him to make it a better place.

I am sure with his contribution our nation will progress further. The vision and leadership quality of this politician would inspire the young party members to contribute towards the betterment of the nation.
