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

Describe a foreign musical festival that you enjoyed.

  • Where you enjoyed it
  • Who was there with you

And explain why you enjoyed it.

Model Answer:
During my visit the United Kingdom (...or say a country name you prefer…) I attended a musical festival there that I enjoyed thoroughly. I went there all of a sudden when I was roaming the London city with one of my friends. I did not even know about the musical program and when I noticed that few famous singers would be joining the festival, I decided to attend there.

It was probably 2008 when I was in London to visit my sister’s house and at that time I attended the festival. I am a great enthusiast of music and I usually enjoy music festivals. So I did not miss my chance to attend this festival. The location was second Hampton Street and the festival was in a wide area. As I recall, a small fair and gathering were outside the auditorium and I had to spend a small amount of money to enter the festival.

There were some solo performances by young and rising singers and they performed really well. People applauded their performance very much. The presenter told a great lot about the music and since there were many foreigners, she also introduced the songs and singers in great details. Finally, she told about the music history and the history of England’s music and musical instruments.

The cool breeze, the people with gaudy dresses, the music and singers took my heart away. I was greatly touched with the local songs and when I saw one of my very favourite singers on the stage, I got very much excited. The festival was a different experience for me especially when it was in a different city.
