IELTS Cue Card Sample 207 - Talk about something that you purchased and had not used much

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

Talk about something that you purchased and had not used much.

You should say:

  • what it was
  • where you bought it
  • why you bought it

and explain why you didn’t use it that much.

Model Answer:
I love the technological devices and gadgets and sometimes purchase them from the attraction rather than the need. One such device I bought that I have rarely used was the Sony gaming console. I purchased it in 2011 with a good amount of money but have not played games in it more than 10 times! 

I bought it from a big Sony showroom from a nearby market. The time I bought it, I had the passion of purchasing it and I did not think about the amount it would cost and how many times I would actually use it. It was like fulfilling a wish rather than purchasing a utilitarian device for daily use. 
When I bought it, I was fascinated to buy it. In fact, I had a long desire to buy it and after I bought it, I got busy with my study and the new job. I noticed that over time, my fascination about playing games in a gaming device or in a computer has decreased. Moreover, my job, my university and my other interests require the majority time and hence I got very little time for playing the game. With time this device has become a backdated gaming console and I have lost interest in it. And because of that, I did not use it that much.
