A prerequisite condition to start a relationship is to first initiate a dialogue. A healthy communication involves both listening and speaking. Some people are reserved and talk less ,whereas others are big mouthed. In order to maintain a healthy mind, we must share our thoughts and feeling with others. It also improves your bond with others, and encourages them to listen to you.
As a teenager, I was very shy and unable to express myself. Suddenly, I met the most talkative person of my life who completely changed me. She was my colleague and became my best friend in no time. I had heard that opposite attracts but I started believing in this after meeting her. We are still best friends.
Though, she looks very arrogant and pretentious, but actually she is outspoken and helpful. My friend is always ready to start a conversation with anyone about anything. She believes that whatever she knows is important and must be shared with others. We never have any misunderstanding between us because she tries her best to explain every small detail.She finds talking is the best medicine to beat stress and anxiety. Due to her habit of talking, she is notable to many and has a large group of friends. Being with her, I have learnt the importance of talking to feel happy and confident.
To conclude, since, we know excess of everything is bad .Therefore, over communication sometimes makes a person deviate from the main topic of discussion. People ignore loquacious people as they do not listen and only talk. I believe, we must not impose our thoughts on others but should also listen to others.
Describe a good news that you have heard recently about your relatives
What the news was
When you heard it
How you heard this news
And explain how you felt about this news
I am very close to some of my relatives, especially my aunt and her son. I share a strong bond with both of them. Today, I’m going to talk about a happy news which I received about my cousin-brother.
I live in Dehradun and my aunt lives in New Delhi. Last Sunday I went to New Delhi for some official work. Despite having a tight work schedule, I managed to go to my aunt’s house for some time in the evening. She had prepared a delicious dinner for me. During dinner she told me about my cousin brother’s selection as a senior manager in a Five Star Hotel in London. Currently, he works as a manger in Hotel Hyatt, a luxury hotel, in New Delhi.
I felt ambivalent when I heard this news. On one hand, I was very happy about his achievement. He has worked hard to reach that level. This job offer was a reward of his hard work and perseverance. On the other hand, I was sad because he is the only child my aunt has. She would be alone if he went to London. How would she live without him? All these questions were coming to my mind. To be honest, I didn’t discuss these concerns with her. It was their personal decision to accept or reject the offer. I had nothing to do with that. I wholeheartedly congratulated her and came to Dehradun the next day.
Speaking Part 2 (Cue Card): Tell about a building you want to build
Tell about a building you want to build.
• What kind of building it will be?
• When and where it will be?
• What features it must have?
• Why you want to build it?
Though, I am not aware of the fundamentals of construction, but I would love to build my dream house. I will be head over heels if I ever get the opportunity to build my own house. It is a place of fervour, amenity, and tenderness that supports us and provides us shelter.
I love peace and solitude. Therefore, I will build my house in the outskirts of the city. I have a dream to own a big and luxurious house with a green lush lawn in the front .The lawn will be decorated by beautiful flowers and trees. A big statue of Buddha will be placed on the main entrance of the house. Consequently it will symbolise serenity and spiritualism prevalent in the house. In addition to that, Interior design of the house will be a mix of both contemporary and modern styles. The drawing room will be spacious to accommodate multiple visitors at a time.
Thereafter, a big modular kitchen will be made on the ground floor whose back door will open in the backyard. Next to the kitchen, I will make a small bar decorated by colourful furniture and lights. Moreover, I will arrange a separate mini theatre where my friends and family members can enjoy their favourite movies. Bedrooms and library will be upstairs with side glass walls to enjoy the greenery around.To further beautify my house, I will opt for an open green roof with an open dining space.
I want to build and present this house to my parents on their 25th anniversary. My parents brought me into this world and nurtured me in the best possible way. Hence, this dream house will be a small token of love and sentiments, to pay my debt of gratitude to them.
Talk about a situation when you wanted to help someone but you had limited time.
When it was?
Where it was?
What the situation was?
How you felt about this lack of time?
As a philanthropist, I am generous and have concern for humanity. I utilise my time, energy and other resources to help others. The nature serves and supports the mankind without expecting anything in return. Likewise, we should also serve others unconditionally as often as we can. It takes around an hour to reach office from my home. So, I usually leave at 7:45 am every day to reach office in time. Few days ago, by chance, I got late for the office as my alarm clock did not ring in the morning. Moreover, that day I had to give a presentation to the board.
While on the way to office, I stopped my car at traffic signal. Suddenly, I saw an old man sitting across the road and had bare minimum clothes over his body. He was chilled to the bone due to extreme cold weather. He was probably starving and looking for some food. I really wanted to help him by giving him my blazer and some money so that he could buy some food and clothes. The moment I decided to get off the car to help him, the traffic started moving due to green signal. I was unable to stop my car in the moving traffic. Moreover, I was getting late for the presentation as well. Therefore, I did not wait anymore and continued moving towards my office.
I felt as helpless as I had to choose between the duty and desire to serve. That incident shook me to the core and I kept thinking about that old man throughout the day. Although I was appreciated and applauded for the presentation by the board members, I was still feeling deficient and desolate.
