Sample Answer 

During my childhood, I participated in a plethora of games, including, volleyball, hide-and-seek, long jump and many others. But here I want to discuss an exceptionally amazing game named kho kho. I greatly enjoyed this game. I used to play it with my  school  friends when I was a kid.

When I was younger, I used to call my companions to play on the field. Because they were more occupied with other games, I had to convince them at times. Then, at that point, we used to meet at a  nearby playground . we then used to divide everyone into two teams. The team was led by each individual.

We as a whole played it with incredible fervor and excitement. During this game, we spoke up loud and ran really fast in order to not get caught. We celebrated the victory of the winning team when one team won the game. No one felt miserable for the loss in the game, because everyone at the time wanted to see their friends’ faces light up. As a result, I enjoyed playing kho kho with my friends and felt happy again. When I now meet my those friends, we all recall fond childhood memories.

All things considered, I like it even now, my kin and my companions express no to me when I request that they play kho kho, because  now they all are busy with their daily hassles of life.

Therefore, this was a game I really enjoyed playing when i was young.

Word Meaning Sentence
Hassle irritating inconvenience The hassles of daily life are intolerable.
Inclined leaned My sports interest is mainly inclined towards football.

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 game you enjoyed playing when you were younger’.

Q1. What games do Indian children play now?

There are a lot of games which Indian children like to play nowadays, such as cricket and football. But, sadly they are now more inclined towards online games such as PUBG, COD and many more.

Q2. Do boys and girls play different games?

I do not think so because, it is more of an individual choice. Although, earlier it was believed that girls are only meant to play with the soft toys, and boys only play with toy cars. But now, this has changed. Children play whatever games they are interested into and there is not such any specifications to that.
