IELTS Cue Card Sample 265 - Describe a journey to a place that you would like to take

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

Describe a journey to a place that you would like to take.

You should say:

  • where the place is
  • what type of transport you would choose
  • what the purpose of your journey is

and give details of your plan of the journey.

Model Answer:
Whenever the time allows I would like to visit my grandparent’s house which is at (… say the place name…). After I left my hometown with my parents, I have not visited my grandparent’s house for the last 4-5 years. The busy life and tight exam have kelp me away for this much-desired journey to take.

I would take a taxi to reach the rail station from my house. The train journey will last for about 6 hours and after that, I would require taking a public bus to reach the station of my grandparent’s area. From there I would need to walk for about half an hour and then cross the river in a boat. Then I would finally need to pick a rickshaw to reach my grandparent’s house.

I would like to meet my grandpa at his home. Though he has visited our house at town few times during this period, I still want to meet him, my uncles and cousins there. I miss my hometown and being there is a great joy for me. I passed my childhood at that place and want to go there as much as possible.

I have planned to go there during the summer vacation I will get from the university. I have planned to save some money and take some money from my parents for this journey. I will take one of my best friends with me and would show him the village where I was born. We will do lots of fun stuff there and would stay at around a week. We have planned to collect the train ticket online and for the taxi, we will book it in advance. I am really looking forward to enjoying this journey and my stay at my grandparent’s house.
