There is so much that we can do and so much that we can learn, often from people who are very close to us. This time we are looking as some cue card questions about the things that you learnt from a person very close to you.
Describe something you learnt from a near one. You should say :
- what you learnt?
- how this became important later in your life
- have you taught it to someone?
also explain under what circumstances did you learnt this?
SAMPLE ANSWER 1
I believe most of the time ,the important things in life are taught by people who are very close to us. These are the people who help us in taking decisions. I have learnt how to type using both the hands on a computer by my father. I remember when other kids were busy making notes on the notebook, I was making notes on my computer. Typing those chapters out has really helped me in later years when I joined the IT industry. When everyone is bothered about typing the write code I can give my entire attention to the code itself. I can make notes on computer in a better way then most people can make. This really helps me in my work.
Being a blogger not being bothered about how I am writing makes things so much more simpler for me. I have not entirely taught it to anyone, because it is all about practice. But, yes the basic techniques, whenever someone asks I feel good about telling them to people. I learnt typing because my father thought I should know it. Also, after a certain point of time I started liking it as well.
SAMPLE ANSWER 2
I remember there was a time in my life I was really bothered about lot of things. Not being able to do things had made me go really bizarre. I can recall calling my friend regularly and once I was very distressed. I told her how I lost my chance of buying a Mac and then lost my phone. How things were not going according to the plan and I couldn’t find an escape.
There was no lecture that I got from her but she told that no matter how much mess I am in she loves me and will always be my friend. Then she asked me to ask if these things really matter. I knew they don’t matter that much but yes too an extent they do. So, she again asked me if I can do something about them. For some I said yes, for rest I said no. She simply said,” things that you can do something about, just do something about it. The things you cannot, there is no point fretting over it”. Surely, this is something we all know but re learning it from a friend really helped me save myself from going crazy. I learnt that it is all about the present and life will find out its way.
I never taught this to anyone, because I think you can only learn it when the time is right and by only someone who is the right person for you.
