Describe an elderly person in your family who you enjoy talking to.

You should say:

  • who this person is
  • what he/she is like
  • how often you see him/her

and explain why you enjoy talking to this person.

[You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you’re going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]

Sample Answer:
Thank you very much for the opportunity to let me talk about a senior person in our family. My grandfather is the elderly person in my family and lives with us here in Wellington. He is an intelligent and active man even in his 60s. Most of his stories are made from his real-life experiences when he served as a soldier in the army. So, I enjoy talking with this person and learn numerous invaluable lessons from each of the conversations. This is a great cue card task topic for me and I would like to thank you for this. I am glad to have it in my share.

My grandfather, Thomas Connor, was a brave soldier and served in the army for over 20 years. He was promoted to a higher rank of the army and got an early retirement for his vision impairment. But he looked very strong and smart with his official uniform. Still, he has a smart look with his glasses. He is able to drink a huge amount of beer at a time and loves to take part in outdoor activities.

I frequently meet him and when it is a weekend, I am glued to my grandfather round the day. In this time, I have nothing to do and the college is closed. Moreover, my grandfather also gets some spare moments to spend with the family. But I occupy the largest share of the moments from him. On the regular days, I do not have much time to spend with grandpa. I only wish him a good morning and leave for the college.

I love talking with this person. He has travelled to different parts of the world and so his knowledge is far enriched than the other people of my family. He also loves to spend time with me and teaches me about numerous issues. Based on the reasons, I like to talk with him.
