Band 8 Sample Answer :

Today, I am going to talk about a person I know/ who dresses well/speaks a second (foreign) language well/ travels a lot by plane/. That person is my friend/boss/…..
As a typical saleswoman for a multinational company, my friend/my boss has to meet many people from all over the world. That’s why she speaks English as fluently as her mother language. Moreover, she also dresses well because appearance is very important in the sales market. She is tall and thin, thus she always chooses to wear blouses with pencil skirts or midi dresses because such smart clothes not only complement her figure but also give her a formal look suitable for business meetings. Every time she appears in public, she draws everyone’s attention; people look at her with admiration. I think that’s one of the reasons why she is such an effective salesperson.
Due to the nature of her job, she has to travel to [……..]/uses English quite often because our company has a large customer internationally. As a result, travelling by plane is the only choice. There are months when she has to go there once a week to prepare for a client meeting or provide training to new employees/ Being competent in English helps her a lot in closing the deal with international clients since nowadays, English is considered to be the most common language in the business world. She speaks English so well that one of our clients complimented her on sounding exactly like a native speaker.
