IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card # 47
Describe your study room.
You should say:
- how it looks like
- how much time you spend in this room
- what types of furniture the room has
and explain why you like your study room.
[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.]
I have a study room. Period! I wish I could just stop at that! I also wish that I just could post a picture of my study room in order to avoid talking about it because, frankly speaking, it is really embarrassing to talk about a room which looks just like a “truckload” of trash, begging to be unloaded in a dumpster. Well, there… I guess, I just said what my study room really looks like, on a day when I am actually in a mood to keep my ‘stuff’ rather organized in it. Now, you can only imagine what my study room might just look like when it is not so “organized”!
Of course, in my defence, I would say that it is a rather small room with one large tinted glass window which is a bit isolated in one corner of our large house. The room probably does not have an area more than 80 square feet but its rather wide entrance makes it look even smaller. Anyway, the only aspect that makes my study room a rather “decent” looking room is its beautiful interior painting which is perfect light blue. You must have already figured it out that my study room has plenty of other “stuff” in it apart from the books and other study materials along with my desktop computer. Well, to tell the truth, my cricket bats (actually dozens of them), footballs and tennis balls (again, at least a few dozens of them) also somehow make their “entries” into my study room.
On average, I spend around 4-6 hours a day in it and probably the whole day when I do not have classes. As for the furniture, it has one semi-large desk on which I have my books and computer, a couple of chairs, a small sofa, and a single bed which I use to take an occasional nap when I am not in a mood to study.
Anyway, no matter how crowded and unorganized my study room really is, I actually like it primarily because this is where I get to study anything without any interruption whether it is tough physics math or a storybook. I like my study room also because this is where I actually get to “think over” the stuff when life becomes a bit stressful. I like my study room also because it allows me to listen to some of my favourite songs in high volume when my examinations are all over without worrying about any complain! However, the reason for which I like my study room most is that it allows me to become “the real” me by allowing me to plan ahead for my life and careers as an adult.
