IELTS Speaking Part 2-352: IELTS Cue Card with Model Answer.
Describe something you forgot to do.
1. What do you remember to do every day?
2. What helps people to remember things?
3. Why do old people forget about things easily?
4. Have you ever forgotten something important?
Model Answer 1:
Well, there are many things I have to remember to do every day. For example, after getting up in the morning, I need to take some simple physical exercises like doing some crunches(咬碎) and push-ups(俯卧撑). Besides, another important thing that I should keep in mind is to teach my son to read the traditional Chinese poems in the evening.
Well, it’s kind of hard to say but people I know around me use the to-do-list apps in their mobile phones to help them remember what to do next; but maybe for others, they may probably write the urgent(紧急的)things down in the notebooks.
Well, I guess it’s quite normal that people are more and more forgetful when they are becomingageing(老化). Apart(相距) from some negative(负的) emotional(情绪的) factors(因素) like stress(压力) anddepression(沮丧), elderly people are easier to forget things because of their normal ageing.
Oh yes, I nearly forgot the birthday of a woman I liked last time. I once asked her what her birthday was, and told her I would send her a gift, but I just unbelievably(难以置信地) forgot it until the evening that day. Fortunately I asked her out to dinner to celebrate with her.
