Cue Card 285 - Describe your favourite part of a typical day

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

Describe your favourite part of a typical day.

You should say:

  • when it is
  • what you do then
  • how long this part of a day lasts

and explain why this is your favourite part of a typical day.


Model Answer 1:
I can potentially enjoy any part of the day, depending on the content of the day.  But I am essentially a night-owl, and as such, I have no hesitation to say that my favourite part of the day is the late-night from 1 am to 3 am when most people are asleep.

Now, if you ask me what I do during that time or how I spend that few hours at late night, I would say that it depends on my mood as well as on what I did during the day time. For example, if it is during the weekdays, and I was really mentally drained out because of a hectic workday, I normally lie down on the bed and listen to some slow music, like soft rock, in order to soothe my mind and body. Sometimes, I also like to read some nice books. On the other hands, if I have a nice day at work and also manage to enjoy my evening with my friends or family members, I watch TV in a rather relaxed mood.

But, when I say that I watch TV, it doesn’t necessarily mean that I watch any particular programme; rather, I keep myself busy flipping the TV channels one after another in order to check if TV is still interesting as it was in the past. By the way, not sure exactly why I started to consider late night as my favourite part of the day, but I am assuming that it probably has something to do with finishing the extra office works that I couldn’t finish during regular work hours.

Anyway, this late-night is my favourite part of the day, mainly because it allows me to do the things, that I like, at my own pace without being disturbed or distracted by other people around me. Besides, it is during this late-night I feel rather energetic while enjoying the hide-and-seek game of darkness with the light and mother nature. 


Sample Answer 2:
Early morning is my favourite part of the day. Though I do not get up early every day, I love the morning time from 5:30 am to 8:30 am.

I often wash my hands and mouth and take a light breakfast at around 6:00 am and then go out for a walk. I usually go to a park and enjoy the fresh air. The environment seems very serene and clean at that time. I often sat beside a lake and enjoy the fishes and birds there. The part of the day I am talking about lasts around 3 hours. When the clock ticks 8:30 am, people start hurrying for the office, school and business places. A lot of cars start moving at that time and the roads become busy and noisy.

The serenity, freshness and peacefulness that the early morning offers are really charming and exceptional. This is the starting of a new day with new promises and possibilities. I enjoy the sparkle and freshness of the morning and also love the birds, fishes, gardens. To me, this is the most beautiful part of the day. Other parts of a day have their own attractions and beauty but to me, the early morning time is the best and most stunning among them all.
