A Product You Were Happy With – IELTS Cue Card Sample 42

Advertisements
Describe a product you bought that you were happy with.

You should say:

  • what you bought
  • (when and) where you bought it
  • why you bought it and explain why you were happy with it

It was last summer that I bought a new yogurt maker and I am very satisfied with it.

This machine is quite small and fits conveniently into my kitchen. Interestingly, it looks like a cooker with six glasses inside. And the most important thing is that it is very easy to use. You just have to pour the mixture of ingredients to make yogurt into these glasses, turn the yogurt maker on and leave it for a few hours. Then, you will have delicious home-made yogurt. Thanks to the simple instructions, I can make yogurt for my whole family any time I want. Yogurt is good for our health, and it can help prevent some potentially fatal diseases and boost the human immune system. Therefore, the members of my family have all adopted the habit of eating yogurt every day.

Owning a yogurt maker helped me to cut down considerably the amount of time that it took to make yogurt, not to mention the higher quality as opposed to the traditional method. At present, I still make yogurt every day for my family with this machine and I think that this is an indispensable product for preparing an essential part of our regular diet.

BAND 9.0 SAMPLE ANSWER 2:

Last summer, I bought a Nokia smart phone that I was really satisfied with. My cell phone was the latest product from Nokia, so there were various useful applications such as video calling, emails, games, music players, and so on. I intended to use this smart hone to listen to music, make phone calls, send messages and check emails. I must say that this portable device helps me a lot no matter where I am.

There were numerous reasons why I took an interest in this product. Firstly, I wanted to use it for entertainment purposes. I could refresh myself after a hard day‟s work by enjoying music or watching reality shows on the Internet. Moreover, thanks to this smart phone, I was ble to keep in touch with my old friends whom I could not meet in person regularly. Besides, his mobile phone helped me to handle my workload effectively.
