IELTS Cue Card Sample 169 - Describe a school which you went to

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

Describe a school which you went to.

You should say:

  • when you went there
  • how many people studied there
  • how long you spent there

and explain what you liked and disliked about it.

Model Answer:
I went to (…say a school name you attended..) school in my childhood and studied there from (..from class  to class…) my grade 3 to grade 7. I was around 8 years old when I first went to this school and had been there till I became 13 years old. This was one of the most popular schools in the city and I had to be accepted in the admission test before I actually started reading there.

The school was a 4 story building and there were approximately 300 students and 40 teachers in this school. I had been a kid when I studied there and I have lots of memories related to this school. I liked the way teachers behaved with us, the very interesting way they taught us, the playground and my classmates. We had a big hall room where we gathered during the tiffin time and enjoyed gossiping with friends. The large green fields were one of our favourite places and we often played and ran there. The school provided us tiffin and snacks which we really liked.

Things I did not like about the school are only a few and among them, the noise produced by the nearby road was the most irritating thing for us. Since the school was situated near the main road, sound pollution was a dire issue for us. I hated the fact that the class started from 6:30 am and because of that I had to wake up very early in the morning. There were 2-3 teachers who had ferocious characteristics and I abhorred their rude behaviours sometimes.

I mostly enjoyed the time I spent in the school. I had many good friends and I liked the environment and teachers o this school.
