PLUS, you can implement the idea of collocations in this answer. Here is the link to a truly useful article: Lessons in speaking – collocations.

Answering this cue card is not a difficult task if you have planned properly. I suggest writing six to eight points and explaining them thoroughly. Take one minute to plan.

You are supposed to answer the three questions. However, the exam demands you to stick to the main statement. Do not deviate. Moreover, you can mention more than what is asked in the three questions. Here are my points to answer this question.

  1. Cricket – international matches, Indian Premier League, Australia cup, NEVER MISS.
  2. Why? Team Sport.
  3. Why? Culture in India.
  4. Why? My dad was a cricketer (Yes, you can lie.)
  5. Why? Hobbie.
  6. With whom? Friends and Family.

Your answer should be clearly communicated using connecting words such as firstly, secondly, finally, moreover. Do not deviate from the question statement. USe correct grammar. Remember, the principles of writing are applicable to speaking as well.

Please answer this question and feel free to share with me.
