Cue Card: Sample Questions – Post 1

For a very long time now, there has been a demand, discussion and wait among our readers and students for the posts regarding Cue Card Sample Questions. Apologising for this late update, we present to you the most eagerly awaited and most routinely sought after post. These questions are the recently asked questions to our students and we are putting them sans discussion questions. Also, we have tried to categorise them under easy, medium and difficult questions. For medium and difficult questions, we have also tried to give helping hints, but as we say, there are no right or wrong answers on IELTS. There are only correctly or well spoken and incorrectly or not so well spoken ones, so you can very well neglect these hints and put your own answers instead. Go ahead with the preparation.
