Describe A Family Business That You Know – IELTS Speaking Cue Card

Describe a family business that you know.

You should say:

  • About a family
  • How do you know the family?
  • What is the type of business?
  • What is the story behind the success of the family?

Sample Answer

(About a family) (How do you know the family?)(What is the type of business?)My grandmother lived in a village, and she always ensured that I had sumptuous meals whenever I visited her on vacations. One afternoon, when she was setting the table for lunch, she realised that the pickle jar was empty. She became tense as she knew that I would be famished. Suddenly, we heard the doorbell ring. I opened the door to find a boy of about the same age as mine, carrying a bag. He told me that he had some delicious bottles of lime pickle, which was hand made by his mother. I urged my grandmother to get one. The boy left, and I enjoyed the food with the pickle. The pickle was extraordinarily delicious and seemed to be made out of high-quality mustard oil. A few days later, we found the boy selling pickles to our neighbours. My grandmother enquired his whereabouts. We got to know that his mom prepared the pickles and he went about selling them. He also did various other jobs to pay for the high-quality oil they needed to make pickles. From then on, we made it a practice to buy lime pickles from him. He soon became my friend, and I paid visits to his house. From then on, I had been witnessing the growth in his business. A few months later, he had rented a small room near our house to store the pickle bottles.

(What is the story behind the success of the family?) The business grew more, and three years later, he invited me for the opening ceremony of his shop. They sold a variety of condiments from wild lime to tomatoes. Out of sheer hard work, he opened branches in many places. Today his brand is very famous, and I find it in every supermarket. Although poor, they worked hard to ensure the quality of their products. Hard work and dedication are the secrets of their success.
