Speaking Part 1
Here is an audio of the sample answers given below. Please listen to it for more clarity on the Speaking Test.
As a matter of fact, I have! I got a box of 6 bottles of red wine as a gift recently. Since I cannot consume all of that, I’ve shared 3 bottles with my friends, as red wine is a luxury here in Asia. I enjoy sharing alcohol with people. It’s something that puts you in a good mood!
That’s an interesting question. I’m a pretty generous person, so I’m happy to share most of my things. However, I particularly enjoy sharing my food with others. I feel that food is one basic thing that undoubtedly makes everyone happy. It’s a win-win (always a benefit) situation.
3 What kinds of things are not suitable for sharing?
Well, for me, I’m extremely petite (small), so it’s difficult for me to share clothes with my friends. It’s quite a task for me to find clothes my size, so I don’t like to risk others stretching them out (to make bigger). Furthermore, I think it’s unsanitary to share certain items, like a toothbrush or a toothpick.
Of course! Actually, since I’m one of 7 children, sharing was unavoidable. After one child grew bigger, we always shared their hand-me-downs (secondhand clothing). Furthermore, during a meal, we each started with a small portion to make sure everyone got enough, then would go back for seconds (second portion of food)
- Win-win: always a benefit
Eg: This is a win-win situation.
- Petite: small
Eg: The dog is petite.
- Stretching them out: to make bigger
Eg: Rahim is stretching the rubber of these pants.
- Hand-me-downs: secondhand clothing
Eg: He placed some hand-me-downs on the table
- Seconds: second portion of food
Eg: They had the first round of the meal. They are going for seconds
