Part 1: Do you like morning or evening? |
Part2/3: A foreign person who you have heard or known that you think is interesting
In this part, the examiner asks you about yourself, your home, work or studies and other familiar topics.
Do you like morning or evening?
Evening, definitely. With daytime comes the too-bright sun, and actual obligations in the world. At night, the stars are out, the moon is glowing quietly, and the majority of people are asleep. It’s a peaceful time.
What do you usually do in the evening?
All sorts of things. It’s the best time of day to productively check off my To-do list because I can keep focused for a long time at night. Also, it is great for relaxing myself. I usually watch reality shows with my friends in the evening.
What did you do in the evening when were little? Why?
Wow, it’s been a long time, I don’t think I can remember clearly. But I do know that I had lots of homework when I was a little kid. I think I spent at least 2 to 3 hours each night on doing homework. I guess that would kill the entire night already since I usually went to bed around 9:30pm when I was young.
Are there any differences between what you do in the evening now and what you did in the past?
Not really. I’ve always enjoyed my evenings. I might watch more films a few years back rather than reality shows now because I was a member of a film club.
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 a foreign person who you have heard or known that you think is interesting
You should say:
Who the person is
How you knew him/her
What kind of person he/she is
And explain why you think he/she is interesting
Well, I like listening to pop songs, so most of the foreigners I know are singers from other countries. So, I’d like to talk about an American singer-songwriter whose name is Bea Miller. She’s a very cute and funny person.
About two years ago, one of my friends sang a beautiful song called Brand New Eyes at a New Year’s party that my class held. I really took a liking to that song and looked it up online right away. Then I found the original singer of it, Bea Miller. She’s only in her twenties but she definitely has great potential with her pop-rock career.
Anyway, I think her character is way different from what she shows on stage. Whenever I put on my headphones and listen to her songs with her sexy and raspy singing voice, I feel like the whole world suddenly calms down. So, I thought she was a quiet and cool person. But she’s actually hilarious. You won’t find other celebrities who post selfies of their big nostrils on social media. But she does it all the time! Sometimes she posts photos of herself making faces with a funny line or a bad joke. It cracks me up every time!
So, I feel like she’s very down-to-earth When she interacts with her fans it’s like she’s the girl next door, which really appeals to me. Of course, I admire her talent for writing music as well. I believe that with her talent and interesting personality, she will industry.
Part 3 In this part, the examiner asks you a few more detailed questions about the same topic.
How do people know foreign friends?
People usually get to know foreign friends through travel. A lot of people like to travel abroad, so they might meet new friends along the way. Sometimes it’s easier to start a friendship while on a journey than in everyday life, despite the difference of citizenship. After all, being in a foreign land means you are exotic, which adds your charisma somewhat. Besides, some people may meet new friends from other countries online. When you play an online game that is open to the world, it’s quite easy to team up with gamers from other countries and have opportunities to know them.
What are the advantages of knowing foreigners?
Well, there are a lot of advantages to knowing foreigners. Firstly, knowing someone from another country will open up your perspective since you will get to learn about a culture that is different than your own. Secondly, you might be introduced to new food, music, languages, or traditions that you would not have known otherwise. Finally, knowing someone from another country gives you a good excuse to travel and visit that country someday.
Do you have any foreign friends and do you think having foreign friends is a good way to know other countries?
Yes, I do have a few friends from other countries who I met on the internet. Specifically, we got to know each other through an online game called PUBG, a trendy online shooting game . Anyway, I know them pretty well after playing dozens of games together. And I’ve learned a lot about their countries through our chats. One of them is from Philippines; she’s the one who I’m the closest with and talk the most to. If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t know so many fun facts about the Philippines.
