Speaking Part 2

Describe an activity that you love to do with older people in your family

You should say

  • What it is
  • how often you do it
  • and explain why you like it

Sample Answer

I live in a joint family. I have my parents, grandparents, uncle, aunt and their son, aka my brother. The perks of having a joint family is that the house is always full of enjoyment and fun. Among all the activities, I still remember the one my brother and I used to do with my grandparents. In the evening, we used to sit together and play carrom or ludo or any board games. 

Since I am working in Delhi, I left my hometown two years back. Since then, I haven’t played. Whenever I return home, it’s like a ritual we follow, an enjoyable ritual. Even after my grandpa passed away, I haven’t once stopped doing it when I go back home. 

One of the many reasons I like it is because it holds a lot of memories. It’s one of the many impressions from my childhood I treasure. My grandmother is too old to walk or do anything. I don’t know how long she will stay with us. After I lose both, I cannot think of a better memory of them to hold on to. It’s sad and heart wrenching to believe how one grows up finally losing every person, one after another, with whom all their childhood memories are connected. If given a chance, I would want it back without a second thought.  I cherish memories forever.

Vocabulary for Cue Card

  • Ritual: a tradition
    Eg:  It’s a ritual they follow
  • Heart wrenching: very sad 
    Eg: It’s an heart wrenching incident
  • Hometown: place where you have grown up
    Eg: I will return to my hometown
  • Cherish: rethink and celebrate
    Eg: I cherish the memories i had back then
  • Childhood: one’s memories when they were a child
    Eg: Everyone remembers their childhood. 

Speaking Part 3

1 What do families do nowadays?

Nowadays families go on a trip ,make some time for each other, eat good food together, commemorate every important event. They also share every good and bad in their lives ,spend weekends with each other by watching movies. Thus they have a very sweet time

2 Do you think it is important to spend time with family?

Yes ,it is  obligatory to spend time with family. In a joint family, it is important to spend time with grandparents because of their experience. They guide us on how to be cautious and help us to plan for the future .Parents help us to build our self esteem and also teach us love and respect.

3 Do you think children should be allowed to travel alone or with friends?

Children should be allowed to go on a trip with some good friends. It helps in increasing the bond between friends and will also provide a positive experience. Parents can also have a sense of relief because their children are going out with someone reliable

4 How will this affect their adulthood?

If children go out for a trip with their friends they will get to know how different people are ,how to and when to spend their money etc. This will help them during their adulthood. When they travel to far off places for studies or job they will have prior experience regarding everything. They will also have an increased sense of responsibility.
