Speaking Part 1

1 What is your full name?

My name is “Faria Raza”. You can call me “Kanika”

2 Can I see your ID?

Sure. Here’s my ID

3 Where are you from?

I was born and brought up in Kolkata. I live near Jadavpur. Kolkata is the City of Joy. A city that never sleeps. One should always visit the city during festivals.

4 Do you work or study?

I am a student. I am pursuing Computer science and engineering from “college_name”. It is one of the most renowned colleges in Kolkata. I am in my second year.

5 What do you do?

I am pursuing computer science engineering in “college_name”. I hold an aggregate of 9.63 CGPA. Alongside my main course, I am also preparing to sit GATE examination.

6 Do you like animals?

Yes, of course! I was raised by animal lovers, so I have definitely inherited that trait. I believe that all living things are connected, so we should respect and love animals. I think it’s incredible that pets like dogs for example are incredibly loyal and never fail to be excited and wag (move back and forth) their tails when you come home even if you’ve only been gone for 30 minutes.

7 What is your favorite animal?

Ever since I was a child, whales have always fascinated me. I think they are absolutely majestic (amazing, beautiful) creatures. I know that they are intelligent creatures that speak their own languages and are very family-oriented which makes me love and respect them. Furthermore, I think especially orcas are just gorgeous with their smooth, black bodies and white circles around their eyes. I’ve always dreamt of going whale- watching!

8 Did you have any pets when you were a child?

Since my mother was an animal lover, our house was full of pets! I used to have geckos (a type of lizard), hermit crabs, 2 cats, and 2 dogs. The most special animal I ever had was my cat named Blackie. I still remember his plump (fat), round body and his short little legs. Actually, he acted more like a dog than a cat. He was amazingly affectionate and loving.

9 Do many people in your country keep a pet at home?

Having pets is definitely a trend nowadays. Although cats and dogs have always been popular, people are now expanding their horizons. For example, mini pigs are becoming more common in homes. It’s said that they act like dogs. Apart from this, more exotic (not average; from a different area of the world) creatures are ending up as pets, such as boas, squirrels, chinchillas, tarantulas, etc. In my opinion, I think these animals belong (should be) outdoors!

10 Is there anything being polluted in your hometown?

Absolutely. As the industry and economy are on the rise (increasing), more and more factories are showing up, causing air pollution. Moreover, as people’s salaries have increased, more people can afford their own personal vehicles, which worsens this problem. Furthermore, there is waste dumped (thrown into) in the bodies of water, causing water pollution. Lastly, as there are many new construction projects and traffic jams, noise pollution is also on the rise.

11 What are the common types of pollutions in the countryside?

As many of the factories are built in rural areas, they are a cause of air pollution in the countryside. Moreover, the use of pesticides (chemicals to keep bugs and animals away from plants) and chemical fertilizers (chemicals added to make soil stronger) in farming does not help this problem. Furthermore, some people dispose of their personal waste into bodies of water, causing water pollution.

12 Have you ever done anything to help the environment?

I could definitely do more! However, I think that small actions do count.  I always carry my trash home with me to throw away if there isn’t a public garbage bin available. I would feel so guilty blatantly littering! Moreover, I choose to ride my bicycle or walk when transportation isn’t needed. Lastly, I opt (choose) to not get a plastic bag when they are unnecessary in stores.

Speaking Part 2

Describe an old person who is interesting

You should say :

  • who this person is
  • how you know this person
  • what you do with this person
  • and why you think this person is interesting

Sample Answer

I would like to talk about my grandfather. I’ve always looked up to him (respected), as he has traveled the entire world on a low budget. Actually, as I’m now an avid (regular) traveler too, I feel that he planted some seeds in my head about this, since the rest of my family isn’t very fond of (like) travel.

To give you some more background, my grandfather and I have always had a close relationship. He always used to go out of his way (inconvenience himself to help me) to come visit me when I was a child. I remember he used to come pick me up from school pretty often as well. As I would sit in the backseat, he would tell me stories about his life and travels. Moreover, he was a history major, so he would always fill me in (tell me about) with facts about the world. If it weren’t for him, I would have never known about the history of these countries at such a young age. Although I don’t see him as often anymore, we always like to exchange travel photography, stories, and discuss history with one another.

I find him really interesting because he has traveled to 111 countries and counting at 81 years old. Furthermore, he has traveled to places that aren’t the typical tourist destinations, which shows how adventurous he is. Even though his body is aging, his mind is still sharp and full of knowledge about many worldly topics. Furthermore, he has a unique sense of humor which makes time with him enjoyable. All in all, there aren’t many people like my grandfather so I treasure (value) him.

Vocabulary For Cue card

  • looked up to him: respected
    Eg: She looked up to her father whenever she needed motivation for some work.
  • on a low budget: maintaining a small cost for everything.
    Eg: I am living on a low budget because I lost my job recently.

    Eg: He is an avid reader of mystery novels.
  • fond of: like
    Eg: Rohan is very fond of his mathematics teacher.
  • go out of his way: inconvenience himself to help me
    Eg: She went out of her way to help her sister.
  • fill me in: tell me about
    Eg: Neha asked me to fill me in with all the information I have missed so far.
  • his mind is still sharp: having an intelligent mind
    Eg: He has had a sharp mind since he was a kid.
  • full of knowledge about: having thorough information on a topic
    Eg: Devangsh has full knowledge about the history of the Medieval Period.
  • sense of humor: ability of a person to appreciate humour or jokes
    Eg: It’s important to have some sense of humour
  • treasure: value
    Eg: She treasures her paintings well.

Speaking Part 3

1 Are there any similarities between the old & young generation?

Yes, no matter how much they may differ from one another, there will always be some similarities between the old and young generation. From the love and care for their dear ones and the urge of being understood and accepted for who we are.

2 Is there anything the young people can learn from the elderly?

Yes. There’s always something to learn from an older person. One basic thing the young people must learn from the elderly is patience. This new generation happens to be reckless, so I feel one should always learn to be patient.

3 What can young people teach the elderly?

There’s a lot to learn from young people. Beginning with the usage of modern technology to open mindness, the list is endless. One of the most important things to be learnt is, to appreciate every small leap of success.

4 Are the elderly willing to learn from the young generation?

This is a complicated question to answer. There are a bunch of people who are actually willing to learn how this modern world runs. But there is a particular group of people who wouldn’t just accept that the world has evolved from their time. Their obnoxious minds wouldn’t let them broaden their mind.

Vocabulary For Speaking Part 3

  • Urge of: eager to
    Eg: She has an urge to learn swimming since she was ns
  • Reckless: careless, impatient
    Eg: He drives the car recklessly
  • Obnoxious: unpleasant, distasteful
    Eg: One should stay away from obnoxious people.
