Are you a people person? Do you enjoy having a lot of people around or like to spend time alone?
Whichever the category that you might fall in, you will have to talk about on the topic. Discuss some of the interesting people that you’ve come across in your life – people who brought about a change in you. This topic is quite interesting and will make you seem enthusiastic and perceptive of those around you. As you are going to talk about someone who has influenced you, begin with describing your encounter with them and the effect this meeting has facilitated in your daily life.
Even if you did not enjoy meeting the person, you can talk at length about why you have regretted it since then. As this person was an initiator of some kind of change in your life, the narrative will flow easily.
Now for the vocabulary,
|Pretentious||Trying to impress by bragging ; often exaggerating oneself|
|Empathetic||Putting oneself in other’s shoes|
|Self-made||To be successful because of one’s hard work|
In the given 1 minute, you are in no trouble in readying content since there is no impediment to the thought process. You should concentrate on the words to use for the talk. Vocabulary is the key here.
The type of words that come in handy here are adjectives. You must recall that they qualify a noun. Since you need to describe the person, you should learn a lot of adjectives. The next preferences can be tenses, subject verb agreement etc. One this is laid out, the talk will be a cakewalk for you.
A simple tip which you can follow while learning adjectives is that when you learn a word, learn the antonym for it. For example, if you learn truthful, learn “deceitful” which is the antonym. By doing this, you will be able to describe both kinds of personalities.
