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 shows happiness

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

Sample Answer:
Happiness is hard to define and so does the happiest man. Sometimes the people 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 a name of your friend…) to be the happiest person I have ever met or seen. He is my friend from the 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 we both of us used to do debate 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 attitude and positive thinking makes 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 and satisfied mentality he possesses and the happy behaviours he shows always make me consider him to be the happiest person I have ever known.   


Alternative Answer:
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.
