First, congratulations to 3 Keys student Leart, who got an overall 8.5 on his IELTS Exam!

Today’s question was posted by a subscriber 3 days before his exam.

(If he were a 3 Keys student, he could have had his answer the very same day he posted it in our course Facebook group!)



Many students may approach this question by trying to describe someone famous, like a political leader or a genius of some sort.

I feel that’s a mistake, because you probably don’t know enough about this person to fill 2 minutes with specific, accurate information.

Therefore, I recommend describing a person you know.

That way, you can also tell a story or two about them which exhibit the traits you admire most.
