- What is your full name?
My name is (name)_(surname).

- Can I see your ID?
Yes sure!

- Where are you from?
I'm from Ahmedabad. It is the biggest city of the state of Gujarat.

- Do you work or study?
I'm studying (course name) from (college name) in (location/city).
I’m working as a (designation) in a (local/international/private/government) firm called (company name).

- What do you do for work?
I am responsible for (eg.: looking after the sales done by the sales agents and maintain a database for the same. I’m also responsible for handling any service requests made after sales.)

- Can you describe your day at work?
My typical day at work starts from 10.30 am and ends at 5.30 pm. Once I reach the office I’m supposed to punch in my attendance, and go to my desk and start my morning jobs. I first contact all the sales agents appointed by my superior and register their field locations for the day. Next, I fill in the details of the previous day’s sales in the computer and forward the same to my superior. This goes on till 1.30 pm when we have a lunch break for an hour. After that, I come back and do the tasks my boss assigns for me, and complete anything that’s pending.

- Do you live in an apartment or a house?
We live in an apartment in a 3-storeyed building in the central area of my city.

- Describe your home.
Sure. We have 2 bedrooms in my home, and a dining cum living room and a kitchen. The master bedroom belongs to my parents and the other smaller one is mine. We have painted the walls of our house in a light tan colour. We have off white tile flooring in my house and wooden furniture. Some of the furniture like my mother’s dressing table and our dining table is very old, probably handed down from my great grandfather’s generation. You can say it’s almost an antique.

- What is your favourite room or place there?
My favourite room is my own. It is my small cosy personal space with my bed, a study table, and a small dressing stand. Posters of my favourite Bollywood stars adorn the walls in my room, and I have also hand painted the borders of the mirror on the dressing stand. I spend most of my time there when I’m home.

Cue Card
Talk about a family that you know and like. Please say
- Describe this family.
- When and how did you meet them?
- Why do you like this family?
I would like to talk about my maternal aunt’s family. She is my mother’s younger sister. Our families are very close to each other. They are five people – parents, a son and a daughter in law, and a daughter. A sixth member has now arrived too, that is the baby girl of their son. They are modest, down-to-earth people with a broad minded mentality, and they are very affectionate towards anyone they are in acquaintance with. The male members of the family are hardworking and ambitious and the females are all very loving and generous. Since they are such close relatives, I know them since I was born. In fact their daughter is just a few months younger than me, so we both shared a really good bonding from childhood, just like our mothers would have had in their time. I like this family because I have known them since so long that we practically know each other’s traits and habits. They take really good care of me if I go to their place to stay, and our opinions on most of the things match. I like each member of the family and I’m really very happy they are my relatives.

- What is more important, friends or family in your opinion? Why?
I think both are important at their own places, but I think if we have good family that supports us it is a better feeling. For example if you go to any event of your community or religion, your friends may not be able to join you there. Having your family members around you doesn’t let you feel lonely, and you feel joyous and included in the particular event.

- Do you prefer to spend your time with family or friends?
I prefer to spend time with friends more as all my friends stay in my city, whereas my family members are settled in different cities in my country.
