Describe a polite person you met – 2018 IELTS Speaking Part 2

Describe a polite person you met/Describe a person you have come across who is always polite and helpful

You should say:

  • who this person is
  • how you know this person
  • why you think this person is polite

Sample Answer

Courtesy seems to be one of the most basic social etiquettes that everyone should master and fully apply in their daily interactions with others. If you ask me who impressed me the most by their manners, I reckon it would be my supervisor – Mrs. White – who I have been working with for the last 4 months.

Mrs. White is my team leader and the one I directly report to. And whoever has worked with her appreciates her can-do attitude, leadership, kindness as well as her polite behavior which is shown in even the smallest deeds. For example, although I was just an intern when starting working on a project led by Mrs. White, she had never ignored me but always encouraged me to speak up and share my ideas, which made me feel more involved and acknowledged.

When she spends time with you, she’s actually with you. By this I mean you have her undivided attention. Unlike those who fake enthusiasm when talking to people, Mrs. White is really concerned about what’s happening not only in the office but things that trouble her colleagues if they’re willing to share, a virtue which is hard to find in this materialistic life. Plus, you would never be offended by her since no matter how bad the situation might get, she always chooses her words carefully rather than attacking her subordinates with inappropriate languages. To me, she is a quintessential lady who deserves to be a role model for young girls to follow.
