IELTS Cue Card Sample 148 - Describe the most polite person you know

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

Describe the most polite person you know.

You should say:

  • who this person is
  • how you met him/ her
  • whether you enjoy his/ her company or not

and explain why do you think him/ her to be the most polite person.

Model Answer:
I have met many persons with very polite behaviours and soft attitude and among them my neighbour Mr Arun (...say a name you like...) is the most polite person I have ever met. Interestingly he is very talented, well-mannered, possesses an extensive experience of travelling and he is a writer. There is a rumour that after his son died, he started living a discrete and solitary life.

I first met him after he moved to our neighbourhood around 5 years back. One day I went to his home to give some homemade cookies and food for a major festival. The way he greeted me and thanked me was simply amazing. I was around 19-20 years old but he treated me as if I was a more matured and experienced person. I am at least 20 years junior to him and yet he showed me a respect which is very rare nowadays.

In fact, he is well-known in our community as a perfect gentleman and a sober person. Almost every one of our locality likes him for his polite manner, serene life-style and his wit. I often visit his place and discuss on several issues. He is a great problem solver and has a natural gift on Mathematics. He often helped me on my studies and we played table tennis, chess and other indoor games. The most interesting part about him is that he is a brave person and he often protests the unfair issues of our community. But those are so natural and his way of presenting those issues are so important and obvious that people obey him and give great concerns on the issues he raises. Besides, people respect his judgments and good wills. I like spending time with him and enjoy his accompany. We all have our own perceptions about polite persons and in my opinion, he is a perfect example how people can be earnest and polite being very brave, intelligent and righteous.
