IELTS Cue Card Sample 243 - Describe the happiest person you know

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

Describe the happiest person you know.

You should say:

  • who this person is
  • how you know this person
  • how he/she shows happiness

and explain why you consider him/her to be the happiest person you know.


Model Answer 1:

Sometimes, I envy him and then think about how possibly he can be so happy in life. I even ask him about the secret to his peace, but he doesn’t answer. Instead, he just simply laughs away, which sometimes leads me to believe that there is perhaps no secret to happiness.

Well, the person, I envy, is none other than one of my best childhood friends who I have known for about 20 years since the days we were going to high school. Yes, he is indeed one of the happiest persons I have ever seen in my life who thinks that being happy and remaining happy is a very easy thing to do. And perhaps, that’s why he can always put a smile on his face, no matter what the circumstances are.

But, he doesn’t exactly express his happiness in the same way. For example, if he hears a piece of good news from anybody, he thanks him or her after giving the person a lot of good advice charmingly and convincingly. In fact, he talks to the good news bearer in such a way that the person becomes the more important person than the news he or she is delivering. He also likes to express his happiness by giving gifts, be them small or big, to his families and friends alike even when there are no occasions for it. Besides, when he feels happy, he also becomes very animated sometime either by laughing out loudly or jumping in the air. His happiness is expressed also in the way he always talks to other people in a very positive and inspiring manner.

Anyway, I consider him to be the happiest person, primarily because I have never seen him with a sad face. Besides, if a person tries to find happiness in every little thing in the world, there is no other option but to consider him as a very happy and positive person. Finally, I consider him to be a very, very happy person because I have never seen him getting mad at another person even when there is a reason for him to be angry.


Sample Answer 2:

Happiness is hard to define and so does the happiest man. Sometimes people whom we think are very happy confess that they have great sufferings and sorrows in their lives. However, if we spend a great deal of time with someone and if we can observe him/ her closely, then we can make a very good assumption of his characteristics and his ideas.

I would pick my friend (…say the name of a friend…) to be the happiest person I have ever met or seen. He is my friend from early childhood and in my opinion, he knows the value of being happy and no matter what happens, he is contented and that makes him happy.

I first met him in my high school and both of us used to do take part in debate competition together. Thus the closeness and friendship grew between us and later on our friendship grew even further when we got admitted to the same university.

He has a positive attitude and he is very contented with whatever he has. That’s the attitude and positive thinking which make him happy. He does not repent for thinks undone or bad things that happened to him. I heard him saying that life is hard and you can be happy if you are happy in your mind. That’s something I agree and I have found him to be happy in his mind even from the worst experience.

He always smiles and never regrets the things undone like others. He feels that happiness is inside us and our positive attitude can make us happy. He has a positive attitude of removing the negativity of life. He loves to enjoy the fuller possibility of life and he has a charismatic character to make his friends happy.

For the positive mentality he possesses and the happy behaviours he shows always make me consider him to be the happiest person I have ever known.   


Sample Answer 3:

In my opinion, my 12 years old nephew is the happiest person I have ever seen or met. His name is Christopher (... or say a name you like...) and I consider him to be happy and jolly all the time. Since he is still very young and has a very positive mentality, he is indeed a happy person.

We live in a joint family and my nephew Christopher was born in our house. In fact, I know him from his early days. I know him for the last 12 years as I have seen him grown up in from of me. It is amazing that he has turned to be a 12-years young boy but to me, it seems like he is still a child.

The complexities of life have not touched him yet. He inherited the positive attitude from his father who always tries to be in a good and positive mood no matter what. As twelve years old boy, my nephew is still very innocent. He possesses a positive and good mentality and that helps him to be a happy person. He does not seek for luxury and tries to be contended with whatever he has and that's a great weapon to lead a happy life. He is physically strong, plays outdoor games and does not foster anxiety. He tries to find happiness even in his time of trouble and for all those positive mentality and behaviours he has taken life as a pleasant and meaningful journey.

He is happy because he is mentally satisfied and contended. Happiness is pretty tough to define but it is sure that it is a state of positive and contented mind and my nephew Christopher has it all.
