IELTS Speaking Part 2 Cue Card Question:
Talk about an interesting news that you read in the newspaper
- What it was
- In which newspaper you read it
- When it happened
Explain why you think this news to be interesting
I would like to talk about news I read in The Times of India few days ago. It was about a brave girl who fought with kidnappers. The incident just happened 3 weeks ago when an unknown stranger was trying to kidnap a small child in the street. The child was 5 years old boy who was standing outside a shop and used to regularly play there with his friends. The strange man first gave chocolate to that child, took the child in his lap and was about to go. The innocent child found chocolate as so much tempting that it could not even understand that the stranger could be a kidnapper.
But a girl named Sukanya who is 15 years old found that stranger to be a suspicious person as she had never seen him before and she knew that child, being his neighbour. She immediately reacted on the spot snatching the child from that strange man and screamed aloud which led all the people in the street to rush out towards her. People caught that strange man and brought him in front of the police inspector who imprisoned him after inquiring him for hours. Everybody in the street as well as in the town appreciated that girl’s brave spirit. I found this story extremely interesting since I was filled with great level of inspiration and motivation to do something good in the society. Apart from this, I believe this a good real story that would help others to stay awaken by leaving a message that one may protect oneself if surrounded by such criminals.
