IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card # 10
Describe your favourite season
You should say:
- what it is
- what changes this season brings
- how long it lasts
and explain why this is your favourite season.
[You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you are going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]
The world is a beautiful place, as it is, with all of its natural treasures if we have a positive view about life and the many blessings that God has bestowed upon us since the day we were born. But, in realities, we humans simply can’t get past our biased attitudes and behaviour despite our best efforts, having preferences over a group of people over the others or a particular place over another. In this way, therefore, if I am tempted to look upon a particular season more favourably than others, I have a feeling that the mother nature will forgive me for loving “autumn” a bit more than other seasons. Thank God that we are only humans, for we won’t get chastised for being biased!
So, anyway, why I love autumn? Well…duh… isn’t it obvious as to why? Doesn’t our mother earth take a mesmerizing look during this very autumn season with the changing colours of the leaves and trees? Yes, it does, and that’s exactly why I take out my little camera to capture the breathtaking sceneries while feeling the soothingly-crunching sounds of the leaves under my feet. Of course, if you were like me, you would probably not stop at just capturing these picture-perfect sceneries but also save them for future to remind you of your good olden days. The not-too-cold-weather of autumn with fresh air and sunny weather also gives us the urge to spend a few extra hours outdoor unless we are too busy to enjoy what mother nature has to offer. And, if you are rich as well as fashion-junky at the same time, you will probably want to hit your favourite shopping mall in order to buy yourselves some new and comfy-looking jackets, boots, coats, scarves and hats to prepare for the onslaught of a bitter winter, unless, of course, the Antarctic is your favourite continent full of ice.
But, alas, all good things must end just as this autumn season will end when it hides itself behind its sister “winter” after roaming onto this mother earth fearlessly for only a few months, depending on where we live. Where I live, the autumn starts in September and ends in November even though I always wish that I could prolong this beautiful season so that I could enjoy it a little longer. But, unfortunately, we can’t really do much to defy the law of nature. Can we? Until next time, I will try to enjoy the autumn while I can!
