Describe A Special Day You Remember Well – IELTS Speaking Cue Card
Describe a special day you remember well.
You should say:
- Where you were?
- Who you were with?
- What you did?
- And explain why you remember it well?
Days pass by quickly. But there are certain days which leave a mark on our memories. The “Farewell Party” in my school was one such memorable day. All of us were excited about the thought of pursuing University life. But we were equally sad that we would be parting ways. So it was a time of mixed emotions.
(Where you were?) (Who you were with?)(What you did?)We were asked to assemble in the auditorium by 4:00 PM sharp. All of us were in our best attire. The principal began with a welcome note after which there was a band playing some songs. It was followed by a magic show. Then the principal gave us a surprise. She announced that a mic would be passed and anyone who wished to share their experiences can do it. Initially, we were hesitant and kept passing the mic. Suddenly, a student started talking. She spoke with such emotion that some of us were moved to tears. I was sitting beside my best friend, and we held each other tightly. The thought struck us that we would get separated soon. Suddenly, my friend grabbed the mic and started talking. She spoke about our teachers, exams and finally about our friendship. As she sat down, tears welled up in my eyes. We hugged each other and started crying. Many such friends followed suit. We were trying to recover from the thought of getting separated when I felt a hand on my shoulder. It was our principal. She took a chair and spoke at length on different stages in her life and how she managed to remain in touch with all her friends. She also consoled us that we would be alright after some time.
(And explain why you remember it well) We felt relieved. Her advice enlightened us that we should make an effort to stay connected even though life pulls us in different directions. Those words still ring in my ears. It was because of her that the day became unforgettable and special. I followed her advice and found time to talk to my friend even in the busiest moments of my life.
