IELTS Cue Card Sample 130 - Describe a special occasion in your life

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

Describe a special occasion in your life.

You should say:

  • where this occasion took place
  • when it occurred
  • who was there

and explain how you felt on this special occasion.

Model Answer: 
There are many events and occasions in my life which I treat as important events and out of those, my admission to the (...say your university name...) was a very special occasion for me. Since the university is located in (...say a city name...) I would say this occasion took place there. I got admitted to this university in 2004 and I had to compete with several other students to be accepted. It is one of the most famous university and for a single position, more than 20 candidates compete. 

My future career, what I will do, where I will be and what I will become would be shaped by this event. If I had been admitted to a different university in a different faculty, things in my life would have been different. That's why I consider this event as a very significant event in my life. When I came to get admitted to the university, my father was with me. 

As I have already told this was a very important occasion in my life as it would shape my future and what I become. I felt very overwhelmed when I got admitted to this university. I felt proud to be allowed to study there, and my parents were very proud as well. I felt bit sad that I would have to leave my family afterwards but I knew that was for a greater purpose. I felt that a different part of my life is going to start and I was determined to follow the right track with time.
