For easier understanding, I have divided this IELTS Speaking Cue Card into three parts – Introduction, Questions, and Conclusion.


Childhood is ‘THE BEST‘ of all seasons of life and especially the early years of education.

So today, I would grab this opportunity to talk about a man of wisdom who impressed me the most during my childhood.

Who he/she is?

He is none other than Mr. Manish Kashyap.

Mr. Kashyap was a robust man in his thirties, tall and had a tough look. His appearance could be defined as a person wearing simple clothes, but his eyes gleamed with confidence. From his face, one could make out that he had an enormous amount of knowledge within himself.

How do you know him/her?

Like I said, he was my tutor. He used to teach History to 500+ students in our school, and everybody seemed to love his way of teaching.

History failed to garner my attention till the time Mr. Kashyap introduced me to the subject in a completely astonishing way, and I started to like the subject and wanted to know more about it.


Why he/she impressed you the most?

I was actually impressed by his ideology and pedagogical skills. Mr. Kashyap used to believe that only knowledge confined by the syllabus was not enough, he used to discuss about topics beyond the program and encouraged us to be updated with things happening around us in our daily lives.

We never had to face a monotonic history class with Mr. Kashyap as he always brought exciting facts and figures on the table. He also used to crack jokes in the class, and his strategy behind doing this was, to add the fun factor in learning otherwise complicated topics.

How do you feel about him/her?

I feel he is the most skilful teacher I had in my life and for that, I consider myself very fortunate.

His talks were educative, exciting and were full of literary references. His baritone voice and dramatic way of explaining the lessons helped us to grab the topic very quickly and even helped us to remember it.


At last, I would just tell you that.. Mr. Kashyap was kind of man who pulls out individuals from darkness of ignorance into the light of knowledge. I will forever remember him as my most impressive teacher for the values he taught me.


Following are the probable set of IELTS Speaking Part-3 follow up questions that could be asked in Describe a person who impressed you the most when you were in primary school cue card:

Why do people always miss their childhood?

Life is a one-time affair and childhood is undisputedly the best phase of life. So getting nostalgic for simpler days and missing our childhood is too common. As adults, people miss their childhood because they’ve become jaded. Even though there are a lot of things in this world to explore, they often become enslaved to work and social life and lose their sense of wonder and openness. Childhood freedom is replaced by the clocked timeline of adult life. 

Are kids happier than adults? Why?

Yes, kids are definitely happier than young adults. This is simply because the lack of responsibilities and freedom to do anything they like makes them as happy as Larry.

Why do people still remember many of their friends from primary school?

I think it’s because primary schooling is our first step into the education system and mingling with strange faces.  The elementary school is a much more innocent and less “busy” time in life. You go to school and hang out with the same people before, during, and after school for most days.

What kinds of primary school teachers impress students?

I think primary school teachers need to empathise with his students because no two children are similar, and their learning graph will vary. From a personal standpoint, the most impressive teacher is the one who understands his students very well and indulge in one-to-one advise.
