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

Talk about your favourite TV channel.

  • How often do you watch it
  • What type of programmes does it broadcast

and explain why do you like this TV channel.

Model Answer:
I do not watch TV that much but it is a great electronic and mass media for education and entertainment. Sometimes I watch TV, mostly in my free time and among the channels I watch, 'Discovery Channel' is my favourite one. Whenever I held the TV remote control in my hand, I look for either a news channel or Discovery channel. This is the channel I watch more often than any other channels. I watch it for 4-8 hours per week. On my day off, if I am in front of TV, I watch the great educational and recreational programs that this channel broadcasts. 

It broadcasts mainly documentary programs focusing on popular science, technology and history. But recently they have started showing some other types of programs like reality shows and pseudo-technologies and entertainments. There are some unique programs that they present to their audiences like Myth Busters, Unsolved History, automobiles, and occupations etc. This channel started broadcasting from 1985 and has become one the most popular TV channels in the world because of their emphasis on high-quality programs.
 
I like this TV channel because of the programs and documentaries they present. Most of the programmes are thoroughly enjoyable and offer lots of information to the viewers. This is one of the great sources for me to learn history, technology and other educational knowledge. The picture quality is really nice and this channel is easily available via the cable service providers. I found this channel really interesting and I can learn many new things watching it.
