Sample Answer 1
Living in a populous nation like India has its own pros and cons. Talking about the latter, you will find noise at almost every nook and corner. If I had to share one incident when somebody made a lot of noise, I would like to tell you about our family functions.
So, I belong to an authentic Punjabi background, and we are generally extremely clamorous. Last year, it was one of my cousins’ 15th birthday, and her parents decided to throw a party. During this party, the entire family got together. Additionally, the extended family was invited as well.
Thus, the women formed a group and sat at a specific place. There were almost 20 of them. Together, they began talking and laughing at the highest pitch. In the entire party, this was the loudest gang.
For a moment, we all thought they were fighting with one another. However, we saw them laughing and relishing their conversations like little children when we reached closer.
While watching them ecstatic was a happy vibe; a few people even advised them to decrease the pitch. But, the ladies didn’t pay any heed to the requests. And then, when the men of my family joined them, the scenario was entirely out of the world.
Sample Answer 2
Here is the sample for “describe a time someone or something made a lot of noise” topic:
(When this happened?) I would like to talk about an occasion when the noise was intolerable, that it disturbed everyone and became a concern for all. Recently, I visited my friend’s wedding, where they had arranged a DJ to play songs. (Who this person was?) Apart from DJ, there were also a few members who were doing karaoke. There were few children who were playing and screaming which was very disturbing.
(What kind of noise was?) I tried to stop the children by warning them. Since they were deeply involved in the game, they didn’t heed my words. Later, another friend of mine suggested the DJ stop playing the songs as the karaoke was already being played. But to our surprise, he ignored us and increased the volume. So, we were left with no other choice but to bear the loud noise. (And explain what you did when you heard) The noise was deafening, and everyone in the venue was slowly feeling exhausted. Later, the bride’s father asked the karaoke members and the DJ to stop playing the songs as the wedding ceremony was about to begin. Everyone was relieved and started enjoying the wedding ceremony.
