Part 1: Any unhealthy habits |
Part2/3: One of the shopping centers you often go
In this part, the examiner asks you about yourself, your home, work or studies and other familiar topics.
Do you have any unhealthy habits?
Well, actually I do. When I'm stressed, I bite my lips and pick my nails. Moreover, I used to smoke cigarettes a few years ago, but hopefully I managed to break this habit.
What do you do to stay healthy?
I try to eat healthy food and do regular exercises. Also, I think it's very important to develop a healthy lifestyle and stick to it. For example, I try to avoid eating junk food.
In your opinion, what is more important, eating healthy food or doing exercises?
Hm... It's an interesting question... To be honest, I believe that it is crucial to do both in order to be healthy. However, if I had to choose only one option, I would choose eating healthy food, because otherwise, the risk of developing a chronic disease of digestive system increases.
Let's move onto the topic of clothing. What type of clothes do you like to wear?
I like comfortable clothes something easy to be in for the whole day.
What kind of clothes do people in your country usually wears?
It depends on their age and also it depends on their jobs sometimes even, younger people like to wear trendy clothes. They like to wear jeans and colorful coats and t-shirts. Yes, I think younger people enjoy younger fashion like everyone in the world. They prefer to dress in a sporty manner but of course for formal occasions the men will put on a very nice suit and ladies will wear an evening dress.
Do you think people behave differently in different kinds of clothes?
I think they probably do. If you wear something smart and formal, I think you subconsciously feel that you're supposed to behave dignified maybe and then you might feel important. If you are wearing something comfortable and sporty every day, you probably behave more casual as well and then you'll probably be more approachable at the same time.
Part 2 In this part, you will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you are going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.
Describe one of the shopping centers you often go.
You should say:
Where the shopping center is
What it looked like
How often you go to the center centers
and explain why you often go to it.
The shopping center that I normally go to is a large one. It was built I think about 5 or 6 years ago. The reason I go there is because there is such a wide variety to choose from. It has 4 or 5 different stories and numerous different shops.
Basically, you can find whatever you are looking for. whether it is a pair of flip-flops or a formal evening dress.
I would probably go there at least once a month or may be twice. I might not even buy anything but there also are some cafes or restaurants to sit and then have about to eat in. So, I might just end up going there with a friend or a few friends just for a coffee or may be do some window shopping.
I go to this particular one because as I mentioned before you can find whatever you are looking for: sportswear, formal wear, shoes, bagsو accessories, and even I think recently household equipment.
Part 3 In this part, the examiner asks you a few more detailed questions about the same topic.
Will smaller shops survive in the current business system?
Actually, I have actually never thought about it before, but I'd assume they would especially in rural areas where demand for the shopping centers is probably zero; however. population is growing and there are new products every day, so I think they will diminish in numbers in more urban areas, but however not completely disappear from the face of the earth. A lot of people still prefer to go to the local shop to buy what they are looking for and support their family businesses.
What are the differences of modern shopping malls and smaller shops?
Well, again, I haven't given this much thought before, but l suppose modern shopping mall is quite inviting with its huge structure, its modem architecture and there is so much to choose from as oppose smaller local shops. I think this abundance of choice might be a bit confusing at times, smaller shops tend to store less items when you go in and you don't have a huge variety to confuse you and of course the appearance is much more traditional.
What is the trend of future shopping centers?
Well, in my opinion. I think the future of shopping centers; they will be fewer in numbers, but probably a lot bigger. I think this would because people want to go to one place and buy whatever they need. There's also this growing trend of internet shopping but I don't think internet shopping will take over completely because I think people generally prefer to see and see whatever about the purchases before making a decision.
