Speaking Part 1

My name is Taniya Mishra

2Can I see your ID?

Sure. Here is my ID

3Where are you from?

I am from Goa. Goa is mainly known for its beaches. People think that Goa is full of beaches, but Goa has covered one-third of forests too. Indian tourism always arranges colourful carnivals in Goa for youth.

I am a student.

No. As much as it is fun to ride a boat, maintaining a boat will be much more difficult than it seems

I don’t like rain. Due to rain, there’s water clogging everywhere, roads become dangerous to drive. You always have to carry an umbrella or your raincoat, and it ruins your outfit too. And if you happen to wear glasses in rain, it will be your worst nightmare. One cannot see anything for the water droplets.

9What do you do when it rains and you are outside?

When it rains, I tend to stay home and be my own self. I don’t really like rain. So when it does, I do anything to distract my mind from sadness. 

Speaking Part 2

Talk about a business person you admire

You should say

  • Who is he/she?
  • What does he/she do?
  • Why do you admire him/her?

Sample Answer

The person I’m going to talk about is Bill Gates, one of the greatest businessmen that I have ever known.

He is well-known as a co-founder of Microsoft and the world’s richest man. However, for years, Gates has been a philanthropist as he donates his money to help less fortune people and invests in developing education or technology.

I could start off by saying that I have a great admiration for him because he established Microsoft cooperation and made computers more accessible for all people. Furthermore, he is not only a knowledgeable person but he is so benevolent and warm-hearted. He is the benefactor and savior of many people. For example, he has spent so much money recruiting the prominent scientists to help create life-changing vaccines, such as the world’s first ever malaria vaccine, which has now been given the green light to be used on babies in sub-Saharan Africa. Last but not least, he always inspires others to persist in pursuing the goals and achieve immense success. He has written a lot of books such as The road ahead or The road to the future to teach people to do business and have perseverance and decisiveness to overcome all obstacles on their way to success.

I wish that I would meet Bill Gate once time in my life, give him a warm hug and ask him for autograph. No one can become a source of motivation to me like him.
