I have a younger brother too, a teenager now helping my father on the farm and in our shop. One of my sisters is married and the other is a teacher Old River. My father and mother are pretty old but they are hardworking.

Something about your family?

Part One Cue Cards

Part 2 is sometimes called the ‘long turn’. You will be given a cue card and you will have 1 minute to prepare your answer. You will then be asked to speak for up to 2 minutes.

Sample“My First Pet Animal”
Please speak about your first pet animal.
In your answer, speak about the animal, when did you get it, who gave you this pet animal, what were your first impressions about this animal, what did you name this animal, how do you describe the animal from a closer distance, later, how did you get along, what did you like about the animal, what did you dislike, did something unexpected happen to your pet, how did your company end up?

Everyone loves to have a pet animal. The most liked pets are dogs, cats, tortoises, birds and rabbits. We love them because they follow us or love us unconditionally.

When I was hardly four years, I got a lovely tortoise from one of my uncles who was a fisherman. It was dark brown like all other tortoises but its height was unusually low. I loved the tortoise so much that I made a small pond in front of my house and named it Toto. Soon the two of us became friendly and Toto started waiting for me to come home from school. After two years Toto grew up like a giant tortoise and carried on its back my school bag to and from the bus.

One evening, when I returned from school my mother appeared panicky. She informed that Toto had been missing since I left to school that morning. My brothers and friends went far and widelooking for Toto but we could not get any information about him. We went on searching for Toto for a week but to no avail. I still look for TOTO in ponds and rivers whenever I go out with my friends, family or alone.

SampleAn Accident that Changed my Life

All of us meet with minor or major accidents in our life. They range from minor fall from a chair, or from a terrace, or a motor accident or sometimes an explosion that claims lives. Each accident makes drastic change in our lives and teaches us some valuable lessons. Most of the accidents are due to crashing of vehicles, fall from heights or in attacks.

When I was pursuing my post graduation, an accident occurred in my life. It was a Friday evening. My friend Rahul and I were riding my bike from college to my home. Half the way home, a dog jumped in front of our bike. Suddenly, our bike skidded and crashed into a wall and the two of us fell into a ditch.

SampleMy First Friend

Describe her appearance. Describe her character. How was she different from others. Describe an incident. When did you separate ways? Why? Where is she now?
