#42 - IELTS Speaking test in Nepal – June 2016

Test # 42

- What is your full name?
I’m Aarohi Gupta.

- Can I see your ID?

- Where are you from?
I’m from Mumbai, the capital of the western state of Maharashtra.

- Do you work or study?
I have just completed my bachelors in Civil engineering, with distinction. I’m looking for a job now.

- Where do you live now?
I live in the suburban locality of Goregaon in Mumbai.

- Describe your apartment or house.
Sure. I live in an apartment in a 10-storeyed building. We have 3 bedrooms in my home, and a dining room, a living room and a kitchen. Out of the 3, two are the master bedrooms, and remaining one we use as a TV room. We have marble flooring in my house and a trendy combination of wooden and glass furniture. Also, my mother is fond of plants so we have many pots of indoor plants in every room.

- What is your favourite room?
My favourite room is the living room. I like how that room is painted. It is cream and pastel green. The furniture in this room is of a lounging type so it feels very comfortable sitting there to read a book or listen to music. On one wall we have lotus motifs in brown colour which gives a very aesthetic feel to the room. It is also in a direction where the sun rays do not cross it, so it remains cool all year round.

- What would you like to change in the room?
I would change the tapestry of the sofas. It is very old fashioned as per the trends now and we’ve grown bored looking at the same furniture since so many years.

- Do you think it is important for children to have different activities at school? Why?
Yes it is very important for children to practice different activities at school, for example sports, art, public speaking, dancing and such. I feel doing all these activities apart from studies will encourage an all-round development in the child.

- Have you been involved in any activities during your school years?
Yes I was very active with co-curriculars! I was a very good dancer and participated in almost all dance events. I was also a good orator so I used to participate in debates and elocutions as well.

- What would you like to learn in the future?
I would like to learn a sport or a new language. I think both are very fulfilling and satisfying experiences. To be specific, I’d say I’d like to learn tennis, or the French language.

Cue Card
Talk about a friend that you like the most. Please say
- Where and when did you both meet?
- What do you usually do together?
- Why do you like him/her so much?
I love my best friend Shruti. She and I have been friends since we were 5 years old and we’ve studied in the same school. We have a lot of things in common. We both like the same kind of food and clothes so I often go shopping with her and it is a very enjoyable time for me. We can talk with each other very comfortably. Even our opinions about people are similar. Whenever we meet, we gossip a lot about our classmates and people in our circles. We also love food so we discuss recipes and try making them too. Lately we’ve become fond of cosmetic brands as well, so we try and watch videos on YouTube about how to use different cosmetics. All this apart, we also listen to each other’s advice very faithfully, so whenever any of us is in a situation where we need help, we talk it out and help each other in any way we can. Shruti has always had my back in any situation and I can’t even count the number of times we’ve covered for each other in front of our parents. She’s a bit more adventurous than I am, and many a times I end up having a lot of fun with her.

- Do you think an employer and staff can be good friends?
Yes why not! If the working environment is hospitable and people are of similar mind-sets then bosses and subordinates can be friends.

- Is there a difference between girls’ and boys’ friendship?
I think girls are more sensitive so their friendship is very intimate. They take care of the other person’s feelings before saying anything, but they also can’t keep secrets to them. Also, girls cannot confront their friends properly about any issue, but they’ll talk about it among themselves. Talking about boys, I think they’re more open and straightforward in their friendships, and don’t really carry grudges for months or years. They are more interested in having fun in the friendship rather than brooding on the other person’s life issues.

- Why do you think it is so?
I’m not sure what to say here…it is just how it has been. I mean I don’t say all girls or all boys are like this, but most of the people fall into these characteristics.

- Do you have a lot of good friends?
Yes I have a lot of good friends. I believe in making friends for life. So if there’s somebody I don’t like as much, he’ll just be my acquaintance, not a friend.
