Describe A Conversation Topic You Were Not Interested In – IELTS Speaking Cue Card
Describe a conversation topic you were not interested in.
You should say:
- Who you talked with?
- When you had the conversation?
- What was the topic?
- And explain why you were not interested?
Last month, I decided to meet one of my first friends to know about her well-being since I hadn’t met her for the past one year due to Covid. We went to a restaurant, ordered some snacks, and started discussing our professional life and family matters.
Initially, I enjoyed our conversation, but soon the discussion turned towards COVID and lockdown. She explained how lockdown negatively affected her mental health and impacted her family’s financial condition. I was disheartened and stupefied to hear that. I tried to console her, but this conversation made me uncomfortable. Since March 2020, I had received a lot of unpleasant news from my near and dear ones. I thought it would be rude to change the topic since she was deeply hurt and wanted to talk about her hardships. Then I hurriedly finished my meal and told her that I need to go home early, and took her shopping. It distracted her, but honestly, her problem seemed complex. Over the past few months, I have encountered many people who were mentally or financially affected by Covid and Lockdown, and it makes me feel bad that I cannot do anything to make them happy.
