SAMPLE ANSWER ONE

There are more than seven billion people on this planet and not everyone is well known. Famous people are all over the world and we all like to follow them and know about them. Although there are quite a few personalities that I follow, one individual that I am a big fan of is Kailash Satyarthi. He is a social activist who has been working against atrocities committed in the society and has pledged his life towards the eradication of child labour.
He is a Nobel Peace Prize winner of the year 2014 and is the founder of the organisation called Bachpan bachao andolan (BBA) which translates to “Save Childhood movement”. He founded the organisation in late 1990’s and has been working as a socialite ever since. As we know committing crime is very easy in our country and due to poverty and lack of education millions of kids are forced to work when they should be at school and enjoying their childhood. A learned man, Satyarthi is a chemical engineer by profession. He left his lucrative career and he has liberated more than 80,000 child labours since he took the initiative.
In these modern times where the world is so selfish it is very difficult to come across a man who has done so much for the society without thinking about himself. It would be a great honour to meet a man of such stature and magnitude who has received so many accolades and awards for his relentless humanitarian work. His approach to life and selfless attitude is something that never fails to amaze me. He is a true hero and an inspiration for millions in my country.

SAMPLE ANSWER TWO

There have been many personalities I have followed but the one that has truly made an impact on my life has to be Oprah Winfrey. I believe she is a true example of how following your dreams can let you live a meaningful life. Being raped as a child and told that it is her duty to do the household work, she did not let these negativities hold her back. The fact that she believed that she is meant to be successful is what amazes me the most. The reason I really want to meet her is because

She signifies to be as a person who does not think of the issues ahead, rather the great work that needs to be done. This makes it so much more intimidating to meet her. And what I have learned about her is that she has actually lived a balanced life. I wish to learn from her the way of balancing the life and making difference in other people’s life.

I think the day I meet her I would ask her five advice for my life because I do trust that they will be great ones!

SAMPLE ANSWER THREE

If there ever is a famous person I would like to meet, it has to be Raghuram Rajan. He has been one of the most successful RBI governors our country had. Even more, he became the Economic Counselor and Director of Research of the International Monetary Fund, the youngest ever. What made all eyes turning to him is his prediction of the 2008 global crisis.

I am not an economist and neither do understand it well. But I really wish to understand what goes inside one of the most brilliant minds of our country. He has been one of those people who has actually allowed the economy of our country to boost. Over time, we all have seen that when his advice was given consideration, there were losses prevented. However, when they were avoided, we have paid the price.

I want to meet him and know his opinion on our country and what he thinks is the right thing for our country. There is something in me that tells that we as young people should definitely do for our country. I would like to interact with him and know how doing what I love can I do something for my country.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Questions #Dictionary

Q1:Do you often use a dictionary?
ANS:Even though I am a big fan of the English lexicon, it has been a long while since I used the dictionary. I remember having one during school time and using one on quite regular basis during college years, especially the last semester when I had to write my dissertation. Once in a blue moon I come across a new word that I struggle to find the meaning and then in that moment I turn towards my old friend for some help and to find the meaning of that particular word.

Q2:Do you prefer to use an electronic dictionary or a dictionary made out of paper?
ANS:In this digital age where all the facilities are available on the touch screen of your Smartphone that provides you wealth of information it’s quite hard to overlook these benefits. I used to own an oxford paper dictionary at school times, I lost it after my college days and with the ease of using digital media and thanks to search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing etc it has become so much convenient and easy to get meaning of any word in any language not only in English that the thought of buying a dictionary never crossed my mind.

Q3:If someone gave you a dictionary as a gift, how would you feel?
ANS:I’d love to own a dictionary again. I’d be over the moon if one fine day someone gifts me a dictionary. There are some things that feel right the old school way and getting a dictionary as a gift would make me feel ecstatic. I have recently joined an institute as an English teacher and having a dictionary in my bag will make me ready to simplify any word in the English language on that very moment. As I take a cab back home from the institute which is around ten miles from my place so I can use that time to learn some new words.

Q4:Do you think it would be interesting to write a dictionary?
ANS:It will be wonderful to write one. The joy of simplifying difficult and complex words that even some native speaker might not know of will be quite a challenging and daunting task but at the same time one that will take my interest in the English language to the next level. It will also test my knowledge of the language and challenge me to get one on the previous versions as with every new edition new words are added and some of the previous words are explained with a better understanding. It will be a lot more than just interesting as seeing my name on the back of either Oxford or Cambridge official dictionary.
