Ielts Speaking Model: A Wrong Decision - Part 2
IELTS(International English Language Testing System) is the world's leading test of English for higher education, immigration and employment. Below is a sample question and model answer for the topic ‘A Wrong Decision’
Describe a wrong decision you regret making.
You should say:
What the decision was
What the situation was
Why you made the decision
And explain why you think it was the wrong decision.
There are many choices in my life that I regret but I guess the most regretful one would probably be the time I lent my friend 3000RMB.
A friend of mine once asked me to lend her 3000RMB and said she would pay me the money back in 2 weeks. Before giving her the money I asked her why she needed it but she wouldn’t tell me so I figured it was for something very important and since I have known her for many years I trusted her and gave her the money.
After about 3 weeks I contacted her and asked her for the money back but she said she didn’t have it and asked me to wait another week. After that she just stopped picking up my calls. So I went to her home and I found out she used my money just for buying clothes. She told me she won’t pay me back the money and I have no proof that I lent her the money.
Because of this I lost a friend so I believe it’s a very bad decision – I am never letting people borrow money from me again!
