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.

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.

Learning A Language # Cue Card

Cue cards come in the part two of the speaking section. You are given a cue card and some time to write about the possible answer in a page. After the time is over, you are expected to speak fluently on the topic.

So, let’s practice some cue cards.

CUE CARD 

LEARNING A LANGUAGE

How long have you been learning English language?

where did you learn?

what is the most easy or difficult part of English?

Is English important in your profession?

ANSWER

I have studied in an English medium school through out my schooling, so English was the second language I became familiar after my vernacular. Practically, we can say that I have been familiar with English for now 18 years. Although I never took English very seriously, in terms that I really never bothered about the grammar rules for most of the schooling. It was in class VIII that I understood the importance of learning grammar and vocabulary. Since then, I have been an avid reader and have made conscious attempts to understand grammar and use good vocabulary words.

For me, the most difficult part of English was grasping new English words and then applying them. However, since I loved English, it was not very painful to me. I have enjoyed learning the nitty gritty of English.

I am a writer and I write blogs and they are in English. So, English does forms a very important part of my profession. It is very important that when I write they are in perfect English as my words represent me. And I make sure that I keep updating my knowledge English all time.

Favorite Website # Cue Card

CUE CARD

Talk about your Favorite Website.

  • 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.
