What would you like to change in your day to day routine?
Answer A) Well, at present I am quite balanced with my activities in life, so most probably I won’t like to change anything major. But, I think I would prefer taking out some time for my relaxation and holidays in my routine. The work that I do, demands great dedication and attention from me. As a result I mostly don’t get time to catch up with my old friends or meet many people. I think one change that I would want would be that I get some time to interact with people.
Answer B) I really don’t have any specific daily routine, but I am trying to bring some sense to it. Starting from getting up early in the morning to, going for cycling or jogging and then reading newspaper is on my hit list. I would also like to make sure that I sleep well at night so that I am able to get up early. Even more, I would welcome more people in my life, who could act as my network, which I believe is very important in present times.
Answer C) There are certain things that are right about my daily routine, like my habit of getting up early and reading newspaper. But, I would like to add on to it. I would wish to be more active and bring the health consideration into my life. Often it so happens that I am unable to take proper breakfast or have to miss my dinner because of work, I’d like to focus on them more.
The following questions are likely to be asked in the first part of the Speaking section and you need to answer them in one or two sentences. They revolve around your career choice.
Why did you chose a career as traveler?
I love traveling and wanted to work for myself. Being a traveler, allows me both. Earlier I worked for fox, but now, I have set up my own travel blog, allowing me to visit different people, seeing new cultures and making great friends along way. To some extent, I think it was not me who chose travelling, but rather travelling that chose me.
Will you continue with this in future?
As a hobby, surely yes. But, after travelling to so many places, I have realized that some people don’t even have basic necessities of life met. I have children working and earning when they should be studying. So, I want to open a business that provides equal education rights for children, wherein people from all sorts of backgrounds, poor, orphan or belonging to backward class could come and get the world class education that they do deserve.
What was your favorite activity when you were a child?
I remember enjoying reading a lot as a child. I used to read my English literature books, history books and civics books many a times to just get a taste of what happens and how the world operates.
Given below are some of the questions that may be asked in the part I or the part III of the speaking section.
What do you think children prefer: outdoor or indoor activities? Why?
We are living in a technology advanced era, where even a three year old child knows how to operate a mobile phone. But, I think, no matter how many video games have come, when given a choice, children prefer outdoor activities when compared to indoor. May be this is because they get to spend time with their friends and interact with them, outdoors. But, this does not mean that they don’t like indoor.Children tend to love both, they could enjoy a two hour cricket match with their gully friends, but they still will fight with you to watch an episode of their favorite cartoon.
How have kids activities changed since you were a child?
I think at the core level, they are still the same, but other wise, children have completely changed when compared to our times. I remember not asking for a phone until I got into a university, but for children now a days, it is a necessity and they just cannot live without it. Also, they have become more fashionable. It might be possible because of media or the internet that has opened up a new world for all of us, but children are now more conscious of how they look as compared to our times.
