Speaking Part 1
1 What is your name?
Well, I’m “Alex Geller.”
2 Where are you from?
I’m from Dundrum city, which is located on the south-east coast of Northern Ireland. It’s about 1 hour south of the city capital. The city is one the most beautiful places on Earth surrounded by fantastic beaches, thick dense forests, high rolling hills, and picturesque countryside.
3 Do you work or study?
At present, I am in my final year of graduation studying computer science at the George University. I’m eagerly looking forward to my graduation day, which is just a few months from now. Upon graduation, I am thinking of moving to Australia for my Master’s in Computer Science which makes me really excited.
4 What outdoor activities do you like?
Outdoor activities are always fun, as they provide a wide range of physical and mental benefits. These also boost our energy, help reduce stress, anxiety, and improve our self-confidence. Some of the outdoor activities I like are birdwatching, gardening, walking, nature photography, rafting, skiing, hiking, cycling, etc.
5 What outdoor activity did you do when you were young?
When I was young, I used to visit any parks or open spaces with my friends to watch the birds flying and they would fascinate us. Besides that, we loved adventurous activities, and we went hiking, trekking, and mountain biking on the weekends.
6 What is your favorite application on your smartphone?
One of my favorite applications which is installed on my smartphone is Google Fit. This app allows me to be healthy and keep fit systematically and conveniently. We just need to add our type of workout. Our stats & data regarding the workout will be displayed at the end. Overall, the app allows me to understand what kinds of workouts and activities work best for me without a trainer’s help.
7 Do you think about developing your own application?
Of course! Since I’m a computer geek and a good coder, I’d like to develop my own application, which is a business tracker application. With the help of this app, small business owners can track their daily sales, the profits they’ve earned, and see how much they’ve lost. Through this, the owners can understand their business and customers’ needs.
Speaking Part 2
Describe a special day out when you didn’t spend much money/which cost you less
You should say:
- When and where this happened
- What did you do
- Who were there with you
- And explain why it was special
At moments when we take a break from our bustling lives and remember our good old days, we get trapped in our memories. Isn’t it weird to know the fact that time flies very fast?
It was the day of my graduation. My friends and I were having a gala time. Suddenly, one of my friends stood up and blindfolded my eyes. She took me to a place where they knew I would enjoy myself a lot. It was an amusement park. It was a pleasant surprise, and I was very much delighted to see that place.
At the amusement park, we had a lot of fun taking the rides, laughing, talking, eating, and whatnot. The first ride we took was the Fury Wheel. It was really big. We also took a ride on a roller coaster. Then we went towards the maze runner. Although it was pretty tough to come out of the maze, we enjoyed it a lot. After a few other rides, we had lunch in a small restaurant inside the Amusement Park. The food was awesome. Thus, they all gave me a thunderbolt, and this was the day I can never forget in my life. I didn’t spend a penny. My friend paid for everything.
This day was really a special one because as soon as I recall it, all the fun I had in my college gets into my mind. I get a mental picture of my friends and start missing them. I slowly realize that those were the days where I had the best people around.

Speaking Part 3
1 Should people spend more time at home or going out?
In my opinion, people should balance their time. They should spend equal time with their families and with friends. Some people believe that going out will refresh their minds and reduce stress, while others think solitary life is much better than social life. So, they just spend their leisure time being an armchair person.
There are more negative impacts than positive ones if an individual stays at home and spends time on social media. It brings forth negative and zero interaction between siblings, the spouse, parents-children. This also makes an individual more lonely and isolated which exacerbates mental problems such as depression and anxiety.

Eg: The mother balanced her personal and professional life very well.
- Solitary Life: being the only one, or not being with other similar things, often by choice

- Armchair person: refers to a person who knows, or says they know, a lot about a subject without having direct experience of it.
Eg: Although Mr.Mohan doesn’t have any prior experience in writing reviews, he turns out to be an armchair critic.
- Zero interaction: zero communication or direct involvement with someone or something.
Eg: The wealthy families have zero interaction with the old villagers.
- Isolated: far away from other places, buildings, or people; remote
Eg: Rose had to stay isolated for 10 days as she tested positive for the Covid-19.
- Exacerbate: to make something that is already bad worse
Eg: Rose didn’t want to exacerbate the situation. So she resigned from her job.
