Speaking Part 1

1 What is your name?

Well, I’m “Vartika Sarovar”

2 Where are you from?

I am from Madurai, the city of temples. It is one of India’s oldest continuously inhabited metropolises in the world. The city attracts many tourists and visitors for its rooted history, rich heritage, magnificent architectural monuments, mouth-watering dishes, and charming temples. Madurai is the third most populous, and probably the oldest, city in Tamil Nadu.

3 Do you work or study?

Currently, I’m in my final year of graduation studying for Bachelor of Engineering in Information Technology. As I was very keen to work in an IT company, I took up engineering. Apart from that, I also work as a part-time front-desk manager in a digital media company. Post my graduation, I’m thinking of moving to Australia to pursue my higher education.

4 Where is your hometown?

My hometown is in Tamil Nadu, the state which lies in the southernmost part of the Indian subcontinent. It is well known worldwide for its great history, architecture, food, music, movies, classical Indian dance, and fashion. It is the 4th largest state across the country. The state is a paradise for all the art-lovers.

5 What do you like about your hometown?

I like the most about my hometown because it’s a really close-knit community, and the people mingle with everyone quickly and are hospitable. I like it’s cultural atmosphere and the picturesque countryside. Majority of the people who live in my hometown have commuted to metropolitan cities for employment opportunities. However, there are still few people who live here and enjoy the tranquility of village life.

6 Do you like travelling by boat?

Yes,I love travelling by boat as the ride guarantees an adventurous experience. Boat rides are great fun and it’s one of the most relaxing and exciting ways to see still water. If I have a boat of my own, I’d sail round the coast and explore a bit and witness the magnificent sea.

7 Would you want to own a boat? Why?

Of course! Maybe in the future one day, I’d want to own a boat. I would build a house near the coastal region and travel by boat to the cities. Besides that, I would start a business and use the boats to export and import the goods to various coastal areas.

8 Do people in your country like travelling by boat?

I’m not sure if people in my country like travelling by boat. But a few businessmen use the boats or ships to transport their goods to other countries. Others use the boat for picnics or small gatherings during their leisure time. They go fishing, sailing, or diving just to see the corners of the coastal region

Speaking Part 2

Describe a piece of furniture in your home

  • What is the material used?
  • How is it like?
  • How do you feel about it?

Sample Answer

I have a furniture that has been there in my home and which is even older than I am. It’s an easy-chair which belonged to my great grandfather.

I don’t really know who made it or how it was made, but it’s made of pure mahogany wood. The quality shouldn’t be questioned because of its longevity.

It looks like a wooden chair with stuffed cushions. The legs and arms of the chair are well designed in some antique style. It is well varnished as it has a glow.

According to my grandfather, this chair has been passed on from generations to generations. I don’t know any of the history related to it but I have heard it’s highly priced. So according to my grandfather it will pass down to my father and then to me and so on.

It does have some sentiments attached to it. But if I’m completely practical, then I would choose some modern furniture over this. Even though it is comfortable, it’s much more luxurious to sit on a sofa. The chair is placed near the balcony, and I often see my grandfather sitting there and reading newspapers. It might not be special for me, but it is, for my family members. It is the only reason for me to honour this family antique.

Vocabulary for Cue Card

  • Easy-chair: comfortable chairs
    Eg: He is sitting on an easy-chair
  • Luxurious: Lavish and comfortable
    Eg: He is having a luxurious life
  • Longevity: length of time an article is in good condition
    Eg: The longevity of that table is not long
  • Cushion: stuffed pillows for chairs
    Eg: She threw away the dirty cushion

Speaking Part 3

1 Do visitors like your furniture?

Yes, all the visitors who visit my place love the furniture that are present. I had put a lot of thought in decorating my home and it seems like it is worth it. I have a kitchen cum drawing roof. On one side there’s this huge sofa set and a wall TV. There is a dining table opposite to it. Other than that I have 2 bedrooms decorated well and one washroom attached. One of my friends visited me last Sunday and was astonished by my home decor ideas, especially the dining table.

2 What has changed in the way people decorate their homes and materials are used?

People have become modernised. So their tastes have started to differ. I think they have modernised their decoration styles too. They use sofas, smart TVs, square beds and many more. Plywood has replaced the traditional teak wood.

3 What are the good qualities of a good furniture designer?

The quality of a furniture is determined by its material and longevity. The material is one of the most important things one should keep in mind before buying furniture because material and longevity are interrelated. There’s another important factor too. It’s the looks. If the furniture doesn’t go well with your decor, you wouldn’t want to choose it. I have this beautiful square bed, made of teak wood. It’s not only good in looks but also the quality is top-notch.

Vocabulary of Speaking Part 3

  • Modernised: modern representation
    Eg: She is wearing a modernised version of my mom’s necklace
  • Astonished: surprised
    Eg: I am astonished by the film
  • Top-notch: perfect
    Eg: The food was top-notch
  • Decor: decorations
    Eg: The decor of the room didn’t go unnoticed
