Stage You Loved # Speaking Section

A STAGE THAT YOU LOVED

Which stage was it?

Why was it glorious?

How you enjoyed it and say what lessons you learned?

SAMPLE ANSWER

Every one passes through different types of situations in their life. It is either weal or woe, but no matter what it is, the faith to continue counts. I remember one stage in my life which was really enjoyable and full of fun for me. It was after I completed my college and was trying to figure out things for myself in terms of what should I do with my life.

This was the time, I did content writing for a company, adding content to their websites. It was complete fun because I was doing something I was very passionate about i.e. writing and was getting paid for it. Even more the blog that I had started a year back, finally started getting 500 visitors every day adding more to my income. I made new friends, met like minded people and learnt a lot about the thing I loved the most. I remember, I even got a chance of writing a script for an advertisement and go on to shooting and see how set looks like.

The entire mood of that time was great. I was in love with the work I was doing and achieving things in it and even more it taught me valuable things for my life. I learnt that once you have your heart out at something, no one can stop you from achieving what you want. It was during this time that my convictions that you must do what you love became strong. I guess this was the time that marked a new beginning for me and has helped in shaping my life, the way it is now.

Advertisement # Cue Card

ADVERTISEMENT THAT YOU LIKE

Which advertisement is it?

Why do you like it?

What advertisement all about and explain what message it conveys?

SAMPLE ANSWER

Earlier advertisement were rare and had only a certain simple message. Now we have a plethora of them- and some of them are even better than TV commercials. I think TV commercials add variety to the programs because sometimes the program becomes very monotonous.

Recently, I watched a commercial of Mercedes and I just fell in love with it. It is a lovely commercial. A 6-7 years old boy  is shown packing a bag and holding a map. He is then shown moving from place to place according to the map, as if he knows the place where he wants to go. He wanders from place to place and then reaches to the show room of Mercedes. He goes to the man in the show room and says that he is lost and the man says that this is the last time I am giving you a lift to the house.

And I felt so good. I mean the boy was so innocent and then he moves here and there and then very politely says that he is lost. I fell in love with the innocence of the boy and the way the entire add was shoot it felt fantastic. There was no message said, but it was felt and I think that matters. The message that Mercedes is loved by all.

Favorite Website # Cue Card

CUE CARD

Why is it your favorite website?

How often do you use it?

What would life be without it?

SAMPLE ANSWER

Internet has just changed the way the world operates. Gone are the days when you were tied down to your circumstances. These days, because of internet, you can be anything that you want  to be and every one have in some way become connected to it. We all have our favorite websites, that we visit more often. My favorite is youtube.com. The reason I like it is I believe it is a fantastic way of sharing things. People can upload their work, they can see what people are doing without even knowing them personally. I myself have used it for watching motivational videos, learning new stuff and sharing many a times.

I started using youtube 2 years ago and it has been a great experience. I use it almost everyday. I am a blogger, so the only way I can find out stuff is through either youtube or newspapers. So, I use it for my work and also for leisure some times. I can stay on youtube to watch trailers and songs and speeches.

I think necessity is the mother of invention. I have been using it since the time I started blogging. Without it, I think life will be difficult and more importantly, I guess it will be quite limited. But I hope something similar or may be even better than it pops up.

Subjects Enjoyed # Speaking Section

Describe a subject you enjoyed studying at school.
You should say:

  • When and where you started studying it
  • What lessons were like
  • What made the subject different from other subjects
  • And explain why you enjoyed the subject
    • Economics has been one of my favourite subjects since I was I school and was first introduced to this subject when I was in the 8th Standard. I was lucky enough to have the best teacher who taught me economics as she always had a manner of make it interesting. She never taught it like a normal subject but made it exciting by relating it to current situations and gave examples to explain the theory.
      I had never thought that economics could be so interesting and invigorating and that is how the lessons used to be in school. We always had interactive classes where we were not only supposed to listen to the teacher but also put up questions and discuss it at length. No other subject was like this one as the others were more theoretical and based on certain principles. But economics was and still is a subject where one has to think out of the box and relate it to what happens in our day to day lives and all around us.
      One thing I can say is that I thoroughly enjoyed the subject during school and have pursued the same after completing my school education because of the practical essence and relevance this subject has to real life.
