IELTS Cue Card Sample 313 - Describe a quality you really admire

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

Describe a quality you really admire.

You should say:

  • what it is
  • how this quality helps
  • how difficult it is to acquire

And explain why you admire this quality.

Model Answer:
Honesty is the quality I admire most and I believe that honesty is the mantra towards a corruption-free happy world. To me, honesty is a quality that involves being honest in every way of life.

Honesty is considered to be the most important virtue as this quality ensures a balance and authentically structured society where each member would work together towards a better world.

The virtues and good qualities are deeply rooted with honesty. Only an honest person can be truthful, brave and benevolent. A dishonest person will start acquiring other vile characteristics and with time, s/he would become a corrupted and harmful person in every sphere of life. Honesty makes a man brave and happy. A dishonest person can't be truly happy and contended.

This is indeed a difficult quality to acquire if that was not rooted from the early childhood of a person. The society and circumstances offer many attractions and denying all of those devilish attractions and greed is something an honest person would do. To me, this is the first and foremost important quality a good person must have.
