CUE CARD – Describe a house or apartment you would like to live in
Speaking -Part 2 (Cue Card)
Describe a house or apartment you would like to live in.
- What it is like?
- Where it would be ?
- Why you would like to live in this house/apartment ?
- And how you feel about this house/apartment
Home is the place where we all want to come back to after a long tiresome day. I do not want to live in a luxurious apartment, but rather a small house with three rooms and a small drawing area with a wide window, opening to the verdant view outside adding a little vintage touch to it. I want the walls bright coloured and a small space for the bookshelf wherein I would collect my all- time favourite novels and books.
Well, the cities today have become such a congested place to breathe, that we can hardly find a place, we can identify as home. So, I really wish my house to be surrounded by the lush green forests in the cradle of mother-nature, alongside a small river or lake, and the transcendental mountain-view followed by a clear blue sky.
Even though the house of my dreams would be very simple, I really want it to be well furnished with all the basic amenities like electricity, gas and clean drinking water. It should contain large windows from where the fresh breeze would flow in and out, while the chirping of birds would serve as a reminder for the fresh start of a new day.
I think living in my dream house would be one of the greatest feelings in the world, and with persistent hard work and dedication, I believe, I would someday be able to enjoy living in it.
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 house or apartment you would like to live in.’
Q1. Do most Indian people live in an apartment/house?
Well I think that it depends on person to person, as the older people like to live in a house rather than an apartment, whereas, youngsters nowadays are more inclined towards living in an apartment or flats. It also depends on the land availability of the region. For example, in metropolitan cities like Delhi, it is really difficult to find a piece of land with wide gardens, and so people accommodate themselves in tall apartments due to scarcity of land.
Q2. Do young people in your country like to live with their parents or by themselves?
It is a great question. I strongly believe that youth today wants to have a personal space of its own, rather than living under one roof with their parents. Moreover, since most of the young people have to shift nowadays as part of their studies or job, so they tend to live alone by themselves. Furthermore, today’s generation does not want to be dependent on anyone for managing their life, and thus, in order to feel responsible and able enough to not only gain, but also learn from their experiences, they prefer to live alone.
