IELTS Cue Card Sample 208 - Describe a greeting card you have received that was very special to you

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

Describe a greeting card you have received that was very special to you.

You should say:

  • Who gave it to you
  • On what occasion you got it
  • What was the message

and explain why was it special.

Model Answer: 
In different occasions like the birthday, Christmas/ Eid Day/ Puja, New Year and the academic success I have got many greeting cards from my friends, relatives and among them the one I received from my grandpa on my birthday was very special to me. On my 22nd birthday, my grandfather gave a precious gift and a birthday greeting card that I still have. Sadly my grandpa left the world after few months of my 22nd birthday and this greeting card is the last memory I have regarding my grandfather. 

MY grandfather wrote a personal message on the greeting card and signed it. The message read “To my dearest grandson on his happy birthday. Live your full life with happiness and joy”. He wrote it inside the card and the handwriting was so excellent and lively that I still find it very hard to believe that he is no longer with us. 

This card is a special one to me as it was a precious gift that I got from my loving grandfather who is no longer with us. Whenever I look at this card and the message he wrote, I remember him and his happy and content face. This is why it is still a valuable possession I have.
