Describe a situation that was new and exciting for you

IELTS Cue Card Sample Answer

I recently started working; well it was about 6 months ago and it was my first real job as a professional so it was extremely exciting and everything was completely new to me, so there were a lot of things to learn and new things to adapt to.

As I said, this was about 6 months ago, but one of the things I had to adapt to quickly was the working hours, which were longer than the time I had previously spent at university, and getting up earlier than normal as well was a bit of a challenge at first, among other things, but I soon got used to it.

Being in an office environment for me was something totally new, and I was the only new person at that time, so everyone else was a little bit older than me and seemed to know exactly what they were doing – while I felt like a fish out of water.

At first I didn’t really like asking for help from my colleagues, but I soon realized that it was actually the quickest way to learn about everything and to feel more at home and productive at work. Luckily, my colleagues are great people and didn’t mind explaining things to me and helping me to get oriented in the first couple of months.

Overall, it was a very interesting and exciting experience, although a little bit stressful at the same time. But I’m also glad that it’s over and I know my way around now because it’s not so embarrassing anymore and I feel so much more confident now.
