Test # 20

- What is your full name?
My name is Meet Desai.

- Can I see your ID?
Yes sure!

- Where are you from?
I’m from Ahmedabad, in Gujarat, the western state of India.

- Do you work or study?
I’m a third year student of Bachelor in Commerce degree. It is a graduation course.

Cue Card
Talk about a journey that you remember well. Please say
- When and where was it?
- Who did you go with?
- Did you like or dislike the journey? Why?
I remember my journey to Jodhpur very well. I went there just this March for attending a wedding. This was the first time I was travelling to Jodhpur so I was pretty excited. I was with my parents, and my maternal aunt’s family. Their children are my age so I had a very good company along the way. We were travelling by train and the journey was for 13 hours. We spent our time chatting, playing cards, eating snacks from the different stations that came along the way, and took occasional naps as we got worn out by the long journey. I love travelling by trains as I love to watch the railway stations…this is something that I loved in childhood and I never really outgrew it! So it was a very pleasant and enjoyable journey for me!

- What types of cars are popular in your country? Why?
Both sedans and SUVs are popular in my country. To be honest, people now prefer to buy cars as it is one of the signs of you being well-off. If I talk about brands, then Volkswagen, Skoda, Hyundai, Renault and Tata are some of the most popular brands in my country for cars.

- What cars are preferred by men and by women? Why?
Men in their early 20s prefer SUVs. I think it gives them a feeling of pride owning a big bulky vehicle. Also in this age men like to speed. After the late 20s, they switch to classier sedans. For women, sedans go all the way. Sometimes teens or young women might like to buy mini cars like a Volkswagen Beetle, or Renault Kwid.

- Do people purchase a car to show their status?
Yes as I said earlier, that it is a sign of you being well-off…people definitely buy cars as it gives a rise to their social status. However hypocritical it may sound, but the fact is the costlier the car, the more respectable you are.
