Sample Answer

Here is the sample for “Describe an Advertisement which you found very persuasive” topic

We have been bombarded with an array of advertisements every single day. Whether it is a newspaper, television or social media like Facebook or LinkedIn, advertising always has its own way to reach us. One of the most frequent pieces of advertising I have encountered these past few days was about [tech event in your country 2018].

IELTS Speaking ebook CTA

As an avid Facebook user, I scroll down my newsfeeds board practically every 30 minutes to stay abreast of every latest action within my social network. Admittedly, there are some better things I can do but I just can’t help myself. Therefore, the fact that the ads about [tech event in your country 2018] repeatedly popped up on my newsfeed really caught my attention. Some of my friends also shared this news. It piqued my interest so much that I paid a visit to their website to figure out what their gig was. As far as I am concerned, it is a 2-day international technology and investment event for entrepreneurs and business leaders. It is appealing not only to big tech companies but tech-savvy individuals as well. The event aims to reach out to foreign investors, raising funding opportunities, and developing the tech and startup community in an era where tech disruptions are leading almost every industry. With some of the most brilliant and world-class speakers, attendees are going to get some food for thought and inspiration during and after the event.

For me, it was a really useful ad because this big tech event was a golden opportunity for young and talented engineers, developers and entrepreneurs who are thriving non-stop toward a better future, a better life within [your country] and beyond. If I am able to schedule my time and afford the tickets, I will definitely be there to enjoy the vibe and explore many potentials in this rising industry.
