Speaking Part 1
1 What’s your name?
Well, I am Riya Sen.
2 Can I see your ID?
Of course! Here it is.
3 Do you live in a house or a flat?
At present, I live in an apartment that has two spacious bedrooms and an attached bathroom, an open living space, with a dining room and a well-equipped kitchen. There’s a ventilated balcony from where I can spot the breathtaking view of the sunsets in the evenings.
4 Do you like your house?
Very much! The house is spacious and comfortable. I have my workspace and plenty of areas still left for other family members. I love the sunset views from my balcony.
5 Why do you like it?
Not just for its ventilation and spaciousness, but because the apartment is located on the outskirts of the city. There’s many facilities like a Retail Store, an ATM centre, a Bank, a Clinic, a Cafeteria and a Dispensary available within the vicinity of my apartment.
6 How do you expect your future house to be and why?
Down the road, I plan to have my own house which will be uniquely designed according to my specifications outside the city where I can find true peace and happiness. I’d like to have a swimming pool and a garden of my own.
7 Do you use emails?
Yes, I always use email as an official way of sending and receiving information to my clients and colleagues. Usually, our team uses email for official purposes.
8 Are they popular in your country?
Yes, I think almost everyone working in a company uses email as a means of communication for business purposes. And with the advent of technology, half of the global population uses email.
9 Do you think they are going to replace letters in the future? Why?
Emails will indeed replace letters in the future. Although typing a letter and sending them to the clients for business purposes is easy, many publishing companies prefer writing letters to their clients for communication purposes.
Speaking Part 2
Describe an English lesson you like
You should say
- When was it
- What was it
- What did the teacher do
- Why did you like it
The incident happened during my higher secondary classes. Our teacher asked us to take part in the play “The Proposal” by Anton Chekov.
We were each given a part to read. The boys were given the male characters and the girls were asked to read the female part. Since the play was a romantic comedy, the turn of events was easily understandable.
It was a classroom with little space. So the students were asked to sit and just read out as if they were a part of the play. Our class had some excellent readers, who made the play enjoyable than ever.
The class was fun and knowledgeable. What I liked the most about the play was that the teacher could have easily made one of us read it and explain the portion in a monotonous way. Instead, he chose to break the monotony. Every student understood the play within a span of 2 hours. No one had any doubts on the portion. I loved his method of teaching. He was one of the best teachers of English Literature in our school. Thus, I will never forget the lesson. I have been in the class with many teachers but never have I found a tutor who went beyond monotony and approached or adapted in a new way.
Vocabulary For Cue card
- Knowledge: information about something
Eg: Knowledge is power
- Monotony: same old boring way
Eg: One should break the monotony and explore new things
- Adapt: habituate
Eg: She is adapted to live in the cold region.
- Romantic-comedy: both romantic and comedy
Eg: She is a fan of romantic-comedy novels
Speaking Part 3
1 What do you think of the world having a global language?
I think it’s amazing if the world has a global language because it can ease communication barriers in the fields of business and politics. Moreover, it will be easier for individuals who want to study in foreign countries.
2 What are the disadvantages of the world having a global language?
The disadvantages of having a global language are that there will be no further growth of other languages, no more dialects, a threat of social clash, the threat of losing the identity of a language, and a feeling of loss.
Vocabulary For Speaking Part 3
- Barrier: anything that prevents people from being together or understanding each other
Eg: Despite the language barrier, Meera and Yin Yang became friends.
- Communicate: share or exchange information, news, or ideas.
Eg: He was worried that he did not communicate the news properly

Eg: There are many good aspects about this institute.
