Describe Something You Did For The First Time And Enjoyed – IELTS Speaking Cue Card

Describe something you did for the first time and enjoyed.

You should say:

  • What it was?
  • When it was?
  • What you did?
  • And explain why it was something you enjoyed so much?

Sample Answer

(What it was?) (When it was?) I had finished college and got recruited into a company along with my friends. We worked very hard. Suddenly, one of our friends suggested that we take a vacation. All of us agreed to it. We travelled to Coorg for Christmas. We visited many places, but we wanted some adventure. So we decided to go to an elephant camp. We booked for a ride and waited for our turn. Mostly people were in groups. So I was thinking we would go as a group. Suddenly it started to rain. They suspended the ride for some time and asked us to be there after an hour. So we went to a nearby tea stall and had a lovely tea. Then we roamed around. Soon we got split. I was left alone. I did not know where to go. So I decided to go back to the elephant camp and wait for the others to come. I had the tickets with me. By then, the rain had stopped, and it was late evening. A person from the counter approached me and asked me to call my group. I tried to reach them, but none of them picked up. He was in a hurry to close. I was worried that the payment would go waste.

(What you did?) (When it was?)I had finished college and got recruited into a company along with my friends. We worked very hard. Suddenly, one of our friends suggested that we take a vacation. All of us agreed to it. We travelled to Coorg for Christmas. We visited many places, but we wanted some adventure. So we decided to go to an elephant camp. We booked for a ride and waited for our turn. Mostly people were in groups. So I was thinking we would go as a group. Suddenly it started to rain. They suspended the ride for some time and asked us to be there after an hour. So we went to a nearby tea stall and had a lovely tea. Then we roamed around. Soon we got split. I was left alone. I did not know where to go. So I decided to go back to the elephant camp and wait for the others to come. I had the tickets with me. By then, the rain had stopped, and it was late evening. A person from the counter approached me and asked me to call my group. I tried to reach them, but none of them picked up. He was in a hurry to close. I was worried that the payment would go waste.

(What you did) (And explain why it was something you enjoyed so much)I thought for a moment and told him that I would ride on the elephant without my group. He gladly agreed. I was feeling nervous. In fact, I never had pets at home. So I had no prior experience in dealing with animals. I took the stairs and placed my leg on the elephant. It started to shake its huge body. I stepped back. But the mahout was very kind. He grabbed my hand and encouraged me to step on it. Finally, I placed both my legs on it and tried to sit down. The ride started with a jolt. It was only the two of us: Me and the mahout. As I was riding on it, I could feel that the elephant was shaking its body. But midway through, I lost my fears and became happy. I reminded myself of kings riding on elephants. Slowly, I felt like a king myself.

Upon finishing the ride successfully, and after stepping out of the elephant, I could see all my friends. They were shouting and waving to me. I pounced on them for leaving me alone. But I still recall this incident fondly and take pride in myself for having been on an elephant without my friends.
