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.

How To Sound Like A Native Speaker

Most of the students interested in studying abroad, want to sound like a native speaker. Although, neither it is mandatory nor will you be given extra marks for it. Apart from it, there is this one thing you need to remember, it is not easy so you need to be patient with yourself. It will come eventually.

  1. Connect Words- When a native speaker speaks, they tend to connect some words and speak them together. For instance, if one word ends in consonant and the next word begins in the consonant, one simply drops the first consonant. Example- black coffee, in this a native speaker would rather say “blacoffee”. This is helpful in the listening section.
  2. Squeeze Words – When speaking words, native speakers tend to bend in the different syllables and pronounce them together. For example, comfortable is rather pronounced as comf ta bl.e.
  3. Squeeze Letters- This happens for some letter such as country, hundred, did you. The dr in hundred is spoken as jr.

So, go on listen to individual words, native speakers and go out do dictation.You can even listen to English songs or podcast by BBC, or other different audios in English to get a hang of it. Remember, the more you practice the better it will be.
