IELTS Cue Card Topic Speaking Answer | A Bad Weather Experience
As we were sitting there in the class, some water started to drip throught the ceiling into the classroom. At first it didn't seem very serious and the teacher called for someone to come and clean it up while we continued with the lesson. But within about 10 minutes we had to evacuate the classroom because the slow drip started to become much worse. We were standing outside in the corridor while the teacher went to try and find an alternative classroom so we could continue without any more problems, when we all heard a loud crash from inside the classroom. When we looked inside we couldn't believe our eyes - a large part of the ceiling had fallen into the classroom - and there was debris everywhere.
When the teacher came back a few minutes later we told her what had happened. She looked in the room and then started to laugh. Then we all started laughing and saying how lucky we were to have left the room before it happened. Then the manager of the school appeared to see what was going on and when he saw the big hole in the roof, he had a look of amazement on his face.
After a few minutes we relocated to another classroom and continued our lesson, while some of the staff in the school tried to clear up some of the mess and collect the water that was coming in through the big hole in the roof. Luckily the next few days were dry, the storm had passed, and the school had to close off that section so that they could repair the roof outside. But we'll never forget what happened - we could have been sitting there in the room when it happened if we hadn't decided to try and find another room.
Of course, I had to tell my parents all about it and some of my other friends too...they thought I was very lucky.
