Sample Answer 

Childhood is the time when we create memories. There are many memorable events from
my childhood. One of those is a trip to Bhadraj temple. The place was located in the western region of Mussoorie. It was a quaint temple. I visited the place with my parents when I was 12 years old. I vividly remember we reached the destination after a long, hard journey and we hiked a gigantic mountain. we were all fatigued; however, the breathtaking view from the apex of the mountain was worth it. The snow-covered peaks of the great Himalayan range were visible from there. The temple was made out of pure white marble, situated just in the cradle of mother nature, and was a symbol of purity and calmness. Fortunately, the weather conditions became favourable and we experienced snowfall for the first time. My parents and I tasted the essence of authentic garhwali food which included chains and dubuk. We tried to capture as many mesmerising views as we could with our digital camera. The trip was the most memorable event from my childhood because I spent quality time with my parents and created lots of memories

CUE CARD – Describe a positive change in your life

Speaking -Part 2 (Cue Card)

Describe a positive change in your life

 

You should say:

    • What the change was about?
    • When it happened?
    • How it happened?
    • And describe how it affected you later in life
Sample Answer 

Since my childhood, I was in the impression that being from a metropolitan named Delhi, makes me superior to others and gives me an upper edge. I would always treat my mates, belonged to Tier-1 and Tier-2 cities, in a not so welcoming manner. Until, I came across this girl, Anjali. She put up from one of the remotest areas of Uttarakhand. The kind of command over English she possessed, yet the humbleness she had in herself, was truly inexplicable. She really made me think that being better at one skill or being an urban guy doesn’t make you an elite personality. I, who always procrastinated my tasks yet boasted stolen thunders, actually pondered over it, in fact, I had to. Well, eventually, I endeavoured to be like her. I began to see everyone from the same prism. Seems like, now, I have started giving priority to assessments over judgements.

Speaking -Part 3 (Follow up questions)
Here are some examples of follow up questions that examiner may ask during your speaking (part 3) related to cue card ‘Describe a positive change in your life’.

Q1. Do you feel youngsters should have right attitude towards money?

Indeed, one has to be familiar with the fact that earning money needs time and efforts. Merely, having it isn’t suffice. Maintaining and managing it is also a skill. Especially, adolescents, who are always quite vulnerable towards baffling arrays of life, needs to be cautious while spending.

Q2. Do you agree: love of money is the root cause of all evil?

Well, if not an evil, surely one of the catalysts that pushes you to be. I mean have a look at the criminal cases like robbery, theft, and some of the murders, happen to seem like just one cause behind and that’s money. Love to earn and make it double isn’t a concern, but when this love turns into greed, surely it is lethal.

Word Meaning Example
Baffle confusing It always baffles me to pick between science and commerce.
Lethal that can cause a great damage It’s quite lethal to smoke.

CUE CARD – Describe a successful small business

Speaking -Part 2 (Cue Card)

Describe a successful small business.

 

You should say:

    • Who runs the business/how do you know about this              business?
    • What is the business?
    • Where is it?
    • Explain why you think it is successful
Sample Answer 

India’s economy is thriving. Nowadays, most people would rather work for themselves than an employer. People have established numerous tiny businesses, and now I’ll discuss one of their enterprises in my nation: jaywalking. Jay Jajhal, a youthful entrepreneur, founded the quick fashion company Jaywalking in 2016. He was raised in a family of aspirational lower-middle-class parents. He was a typical young man academically. Later, at the University of Mumbai, he pursued a bachelor’s degree in fashion design. He decided to start his firm after discovering his interest in business while studying fashion design. His clothing was extremely rare and had custom designs, which immediately made this brand popular. Regular consumers of this brand include actors Ranveer Singh, Amitabh Bachchan, Scoutt, Shubhman Gill, and many more. The vast customer base that this company has gathered in a short amount of time is the primary factor in determining its success. Additionally, this company works on many humanitarian issues and hires women. This company has been entirely self-funded up to this point and hasn’t received a single round of investment. The founder has plans to diversify the product line and appeal to clients around the world in the future. In conclusion, Jaywalking is among the fastest-growing businesses worldwide, and the quality of their goods surpasses that of many pricier clothing labels.

its strategy.

You should say:

    • When and to whom you gave the speech?
    • What was the speech about?
    • Why you gave the speech?
    • How do you feel about it?
Sample Answer 

I always aspired to become an eloquent orator but would often neglect the opportunity because of public fear. My teacher was aware of this, so she encouraged me to try giving a speech on Independence Day. At first, I denied it and tried to make excuses to get away with it, then later realized the best way to overcome any fear is  by facing it. On the day of my speech, I was greatly petrified and nervous. My friend motivated me a lot and she advised me to not let my fear reflect on my face. Standing at the podium I was shivering with anxiety but I collected my courage and took a deep breath. Fortunately,  I completed my task and even received a standing ovation from everyone. This scene is still fresh in my mind and I can never forget that day. I remember practicing day and night in front of the mirror for it. Eventually, my hard work paid off in the form of applause.

Speaking -Part 3 (Follow up questions)

I believe by practicing it in front of the mirror or by giving a short speech among the people they are comfortable with. By watching speeches of famous orators and learning from their way of delivering speeches.
