IELTS Cue Card Sample 316 - Describe a piece of furniture you have at home

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

Describe a piece of furniture you have at home.

You should say:

  • What it is
  • How long you have it
  • What are the usages of it

And explain why you have it at your home.

Sample Answer:
I stay at our own house and my room still gives the impression of a student’s room though I have recently finished my graduation. My favourite piece of furniture at my home belongs to my room and it is the wooden bookshelf. This is, in fact, a large bookshelf and it comprises all of my favourite books.

I have this wooden bookshelf for the last 3 years after my parents bought it for me. Initially, I had only a few books to keep there and most of the part of the shelf remained empty. But over the time, my book collection increased and the bookshelf is not almost full.

There are 4 layers of this wooden bookshelf and the front side is made of glass. I read plenty of story books and often visit the bookshops to purchase new books. This bookshelf offers a good way of arranging all of my books and secures them with the lock system it has. I often look at my bookshelf and feel kind of proud to have a good collection of books.

My parents bought me this piece of furniture after noticing that I keep books almost everywhere in my room and they thought it would be a good idea to buy me a bookshelf where I would be able to neatly arrange my books. This bookshelf became very handy for me as it helped me keeping my books arranged.
