IELTS Cue Card Sample 246 - Talk about a hobby that someone in your family has

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

Talk about a hobby that someone in your family has.

You should say:

  • Whose hobby it is
  • Where and when s/he do it
  • Why s/he enjoys it

And say if you would enjoy doing the same thing or not, and why.

Sample Answer:
My younger sister has a hobby that I found interesting and this is a rare hobby in my experience. My younger sister’s name is (…say a name….) and she is a bright and intelligent girl. Her academic record is enviable and she had been the headline of our local newspaper for her extraordinary merit in mathematics.

She has a hobby of collecting famous persons’ picture from the newspaper. She already has more than 5 volumes of albums which are full of the faces of famous people. She has maintained an index for the famous person’s name and all of the pictures were collected from the local and international newspapers. She had few others hobbies that I noticed different times including blog writing and stamp collecting but I have never found her that much fascinated with other hobbies as I found her with the current one she has.

One day she told me that when she would be around 26 years old, she would make a Guinness record for the hobby she has. I am not sure if that’s going to be fulfilled or not but I find her hobby very interesting. We have 2 newspapers in our house and she mostly collects the pictures of famous persons from those newspapers. Sometimes she goes to the nearby library that has almost all the local and international newspapers and she had made a way to having the pictures from the old newspapers from this library.

I have thought about her hobby several times and I venerate her hobby and I am sure the hobby helps her to learn about the famous persons. But personally, I would not be that much interested in having the same hobby. First of all, adopting this particular hobby would put me in a position that others would think that I have simply copied my sister's idea and I have more interest in blogging and content writing and collecting coins than simply collecting pictures from newspapers.
