MY FAVORITE DRINK
Name your favorite drink
Tell me something about the taste
When do you drink it
My favorite drink is Coca Cola. I drink it whenever I am upset or worried or confused about something. You can say I am almost addicted to it. My fridge is always stuffed with chilled cans of coca cola. It was five years back when I saw an advertisement of it in television. I was very impressed by the message it gave. It said, one must always share their happiness. So, when I had a house party, I thought why not bring in coca cola. It is since then, that I have loved its taste, especially the chilled one.
It is easy to tell about the taste of the drink. It has a unique taste and it feels a little sweet and something different. It tastes best when it is chilled and even better when mixed with vanilla ice cream. I cannot describe the feeling and the taste, but you could get a good idea of its quality and taste, if you try it yourself.
I drink it whenever I feel a very strong emotion, it could be either happiness or sadness or love or anger. It helps me calm down in moments of distress and brings in the extra joy when I am happy. I don’t mind sharing my can with others unless I also get a bit of share. You can say I go by the ad of coca cola, sharing brings happiness.
A STAGE THAT YOU LOVED
Which stage was it?
Why was it glorious?
How you enjoyed it and say what lessons you learned?
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 THAT YOU LIKE
Which advertisement is it?
Why do you like it?
What advertisement all about and explain what message it conveys?
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.
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.

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?
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.
