Recent IELTS speaking cue card: 

Describe an experience you had as a member of a team.

You should say:-

- What it was

- who were the members of the team

- what role did you play in that team?

- Explain how you achieved your goal


Vocab and idioms used in IELTS speaking topic:-

- Solo: alone

- Contrasting: to be clearly different when compared

- In the nick of time: at last moment

- On seventh heaven: very happy 

Sample answer:-

-Playing SOLO is really easy because we don't expect others to help us and we can use our ways as well as ideas to implement plans, whereas playing or working in a team requires people skills.

-There is a chance of conflicts because of CONTRASTING ideas? Fortunately, I had a positive experience when I worked as a member of a team.

-Last year, it was a rangoli competition in our college. I really wanted to take part in that competition.

-I convinced two of my friends to accompany me because it was a team project. My one friend selected design for the rangoli whereas others decorated it.

-My role was to find relevant information and present it in front of the judges. The selection of the team was going to be on the basis of uniqueness, clarity of topic, and presentation.

-Besides this, it must be completed within hour minutes. Three of us gave our best in our roles.

-Apart from this, we were not allowed to borrow anything from others. If anyone forgot any material to make rangoli, that person was neither allowed to go outside to bring it nor could borrow from others.

-So, we were really careful about it and had everything with us. We completed our project IN THE NICK OF TIME.

-As the judges were coming towards us, we were getting nervous. However, they were impressed by the choice of design and decoration.

-That time I took a deep breath and tried to calm myself to reduce nervousness. I gave my presentation confidently and our team won the competition.

-We were ON SEVENTH HEAVEN after hearing the result. That was possible only because of our teamwork.
