IELTS Cue Card Sample 233 - Describe a skill you want to learn

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

Describe a skill you want to learn.

You should say:

  •     What it is
  •     Why you think it is important
  •     How you are going to learn it

and explain why you want to learn this skill.

Sample Answer:
If I ever get the chance to learn a new skill, I would like to learn karate which is a form of martial art. I had a great fascination and attraction to learn it but never had the chance actually to learn it. This is important for keeping a sound body and to remain fit. It is also a great weapon of self-defence in time of adversity and sudden attack by rogue people.

The greatest benefit this karate offers is a discipline and self-control. Besides the physical exercise, patience and hard work karate requires a great deal of mental power, calmness and a type of discipline which are necessary for a modest life.

If I get the chance, I would get admitted in a good karate learning training centre that would offer a really good training so that I can efficiently learn it. I will need to devote a great deal of regular time and will have to have the determination to learn the necessary skill.

I would like to get involve in some kind of activity which is helpful to keep the body and soul sound. Physical exercise is one way to do that but karate would be more helpful as it would require steady patience and determination as well. I have found some of my friends and relatives found it very helpful in their lives and I was inspired by their discussion regarding the usefulness of this martial art.
