IELTS Cue Card Describe a time you made a promise to someone

Describe a time you made a promise to someone. You should say:–

  • Whom did you make the promise to
  • What the promise was
  • Why you made the promise
  • Was the promise easy to achieve


Sample Answer:
Several times in life, we come across situations where we make commitments to different people. Today I would like to talk about one promise that I made to my family when I was in school.

I was in grade 10th when I had promised my parents that I will score above 90 per cent in my board examination. I was always an average student in school while other kids in my neighbourhood were either brilliant or above-average which sometimes made me self-conscious and I was always apprehensive if I would ever be able to make my parents as proud and happy as other parents in our neighbourhood. So I made this promise to my parents and to myself that I will prove to be better than my past and show that I’m capable of performing exceptionally well even in academics.

As there is a saying that, it is easier to make promises but it is hard to keep them. Likewise even I had to work really hard to keep this promise. I first worked on my weak points. Time management was the most essential part to achieve my goals and I drafted a good timetable with daily time-bound goals. It was not an easy task and I had to burn the midnight oil. Gradually I started seeing good results in school’s term examinations and pre boards.

Finally, after a year’s preparation, I appeared for my class 10th Board exams and performed well. The results were outstanding and I was happy to keep my promise. Though it was not really easy to keep this promise but this journey towards success always helps me to be motivated in life.
