Mirror

1. How often do you look at yourself in the mirror every day?

I would say, countless times. I think it is very common for a girl/boy to do so. In addition, I am a big fan of makeup, so I would like to treat my face better.

2. Have you ever bought the mirror?

Surely, I have to say that I can’t live without a mirror. From time to time I need to check my makeup and how I look in front of others. I think caring about your own image is a kind of showing respect to others.

3. Would you use mirrors to decorate rooms?

Yes, actually, I once installed a mirrored wall to decorate my study. You know, this room looks really larger than before. It’s easy for me to check my appearance as well as making my study looks bigger.

4. Do you often look at mirrors?

Definitely yes. I often look at mirrors in order to check my appearance. I’d like to guarantee that I look tidy and everything goes on well before leaving my home.

5. When do you look at yourself in the mirror, why?

Well, I think it’s at any time I want. In most of the case, I usually do so in the morning and in the evening. Generally speaking, I think every girl likes looking at herself in the mirror.

6. Do you check yourself when you decided to buy a mirror?

Yes, I will. Before buying a mirror, I think I need to assure that I look elegant and tidy. In this case, I need to make a good preparation.

Robots

1.Are you interested in robots? Why?

Yes, I have to say that I am fanatical about robots. I used to watch a very touching movie named Cyborg girl, which tells the love story of a robot and her owner. we often think that robots can not think and love, but the movie has shown the opposite, by which I was deeply impressed.

2.Why are robots part of many TV shows and movies?

That’s a very interesting question! Scientists and science researchers improve techniques by testing advanced technologies with robots to better understand our world as well as the universe in the film-making field. The audience feels like they have superpowers while the television or film is speaking to them.

3. Would you like a robot to help out around the home?

I hope so! I’m in charge of making sure that everyone and everything is in the right place at home . Almost every day I am in need of urgent help. A robot, my most anticipated assistance , may reduce the frequency of my daily stress . It can become a part of my family .

4. Would you ride in a car driven by a robot?

I would love to have a car with a robot in it, but only if there is an option of manually driving the car as well. Having a robot every time in the car, will just take away the fun of driving the car. The fun that you get, the rush of reaching to a place, the fact that you can control something is amazing. Although, having a robot will help in having those long trips but a permanent driver is something I’ll avoid.

5.will robots replace human beings in the workplace completely?

Well, i don’t think so. Even though robots are massively replaceing human labour and this helps us avoid potential dangers as well as saving labour, the role of human beings is rereplaceable. We still need to control robots as well as find solutions for arising problems or process data as robots are still unable to do these tasks.

6.What kinds of robots would like to have?

Just as I mentioned, I really want to have a robot like Baymax. Since I am so busy with my study every day, I don’t have any time to do any housework. So it would be great to have a robot that could do laundry, cooking and cleaning for me, which could save me lots of time.

7.Will robots change our society significantly?

Technology has already made great changes to our lives, and have made a lot of jobs much easier. Therefore, I am sure there will continue to be changes. However, it is hard to say how significant they will be.

Watch

1. How often do you wear a watch?

Well, actually, I wear my watch every day and I think the watch plays an important role in our daily life. Everyday, I need to use my smartwatch not only to check the time and arrange my schedules but also record my daily movements as well as my sleep habits. So, my watch is very important to me, without which it would be impossible to do with time management as well as keeping up with my health.

2. What was your first watch like?

Well, that was an electronic watch. My mother bought it as a gift for my tenth birthday. The watch was golden, and there was a big Mickey mouse on its tail. It was really lovely.

3. What kinds of watches do you like to wear?

Well, actually, I like wearing the mechanical watch. It is widely acknowledged that the mechanical watch doesn’t need a battery, so there is no such consumption I have to pay for this watch. I suppose that it is quite convenient.

4. Do people still wear watches in your country?

Definitely yes, in the current society, people believe that it is very important to be punctual. In order to guarantee that they will never be late for the appointment, people always wear watches in my country. Besides, developments in technology allow people to record their personal health data easily on smartwatch. The sales of smartwatches are soaring during these years.

Describe a piece of clothing that you like wearing.

You should say

  • what the item of clothing is
  • where and when you bought it
  • when you wear it

and explain why you like wearing it.

People around the world wear different sorts of dresses and due to geographical location and seasonal changes, the attires vary. I always prefer wearing jeans clothes, especially jeans pant and shirt.

Jeans are common clothing items and are available around the world and mostly popular among the youths who are of my age. I wear jeans pant and shirt always even when I attend in any formal occasion. The most important benefit of wearing jeans clothing is that they do not become dirty as easily as the other types of clothes do. Moreover, you can have the pant and shirt of all size and shape and are sold at a reasonable price. They are found in different colours and attractive designs too. It makes the look smarter in some cases than the formal attires.

Usually, the jeans cloth is like all the other available clothes, and produced from jean fabric but it is special in the sense that it lasts longer than the other clothes. Jeans is a bit heavier in weight and thus the attires made with the cloths are of higher quality. Besides, the colours are also attractive and able to get attentions of the surrounding people for the distinguished design. The pants and shirts made with jeans cloths are like usual shirt and pants but you can use them both for formal and informal purposes whereas the other clothes are not suitable to serve the same purpose simultaneously.

Describe a foreign food that you would like to try.

You should say:

  • what it is
  • how you learned about this food
  • where it is mostly taken

and explain why you want to try this foreign food.

There is a foreign food that I would really like to try, but I wonder if my choice will surprise you? I will tell you what it is, how I learned about it, where it is mostly eaten and explain why I want to taste it so badly.

The food is…. Pizza! Now, of course, this is a food that you can buy all over the world, and I really enjoy the pizza that I can buy in my home country which is England in the UK. However, I recently learned from a friend that the style of pizza available here is nothing like the authentic Italian pizza you can get if you visit its country of origin, and since then, it’s one of the things on my bucket list. That is, something I’d like to do before I die is to travel to Italy, find a local pizzeria and get a really authentic pizza.

So how did I learn what I’ve been missing? I shop regularly at a local family owned delicatessen. The proprietor is Italian, and he is a great foody – that is he takes food very seriously, sourcing only the best ingredients. He and his wife are both vegetarian like me, so they often suggest food or recipes. The other day we were talking and he was bemoaning the lack of ‘proper’ pizzas in this country. He told me that whilst of course, Italian food is very regional including its pizzas, they are nevertheless distinctive. All pizzas MUST be cooked in a wood-fired oven for a start, the dough should be tossed by hand. The pizza should only be made with the very freshest and finest ingredients, and is best eaten outdoors too, of course, against the backdrop of the Italian countryside!

Pizza is eaten everywhere in Italy, though of course approximations of pizza can be bought the world over. Even so, my deli friend has persuaded me I’ve been missing out, and I’d like to find out for myself how different it might taste if I go for an authentic recipe, venue and location. I’ve never had a real pizza, and I’ve never been to Italy either, I think it would be a winning combination – not to mention that it would also be a great excuse to go to a beautiful country that I have yet to visit. What do you think, would you like to come too?

Describe a piece of furniture that you own.

You should say

  • what it is
  • where you bought it
  • how you use it

and explain why you like it.

I pass most of the time with my computer table when I am at home. This is the favourite piece of furniture for me. In fact, I am in love with this furniture. This is a very interesting question to deal with. Thank you for this nice candidate task card topic. Hope you will enjoy the description of the table in brief now.

This is a wooden computer table. I use it for various purposes. Mostly I use the table for using my personal computer. But sometimes, I also use it as a reading and writing table as well. I do not have any other tables in my room. So, the computer table plays multifarious roles for me. You may also be surprised hearing that often I use this table for dining too.

The table is made with oak wood. And it is black in colour. The table was made by the local carpenter. He made the table with the finest oak woods so that it could sustain for years. Yes, he did his best to make the table. I have been using the table for over six consecutive years. By this period of time, there are no notable changes in the table. There are only some scratches on its back. Even the colour of the table has also not been faded at all. There are also issue with the wooden table that they do not last long or get damaged. Luckily, I did not have such experiences so far with the table.

I use the table frequently. In fact, it is used around the day when I am at home. To be honest, I spend less time on my bed than this table. I play games, watch movies, browse the Internet, make my assignments and many more things. Sometimes, I place my coffee mug on the table while watching any movies or shows on the Internet. The multi purpose use of the table has made if favourite to me. Almost half of the day of mine is spent with this table. I have a chair and I sit comfortably there while using the table.

The table is my favourite furniture for many reasons. The most important reason is that I feel comfortable with the table. I keep my necessary documents and stuffs like my wallet, keys, cell phone charger etc. inside the drawer. The table is the permanent place for my cell phones. I put the phones on the table always when I return home. Besides, being moderately large, the table has ample space to keep many other things on it. So, I also have placed a small flower vase on there. It has helped greatly to change the look of my bed room. Considering the reasons, this is my favourite piece of furniture.

Describe a polite person that you met

You should say:

  • where you met the person
  • How you met the person

Well, the most courteous man I know is my uncle, who’s my father’s little brother. We are pretty close. He’s only 10 years older than me and we always hang out together. He’s well educated, I mean, he just got his doctoral degree. He’s been to a bunch of formal occasions, and he’s quite familiar with social etiquette.

Whenever he’s out with someone, he’s always properly dressed. I didn’t get why he would go through so much trouble to “impress” others, but he explained, the whole point was not to impress, but to show respect.

And he’s super modest when talking to others. Besides, he’s a good listener. He never cuts others off. It always feels good when I have a conversation with him.

And he’s extremely polite when interacting with waiters and taxi drivers. He would say thank you many times after he’s been helped.

On top of that, he pays attention to small details in our daily life, like knocking on doors before entering a room, holding the door for others behind him, and holding the elevator when he sees someone rushing to the door.

So you see, he’s really a nice person, and he’s a good influence on me. Spending time with him has helped me become a better person.

Describe an interesting neighbor of yours

You should say:

  • Who the person is
  • How did you know this person

And explain why you think this neighbour is interesting

 

I’m lucky, I’ve got good neighbours. I’m going to tell you about just one of them, when we met, how often we meet and why I think he is a good neighbour who I like very much.

I live in an old house which has been converted into about eleven different flats and bedsits. I live on the top floor, which is actually the modernised attic space of the original building, there is just one other flat in this roof area. To get to my flat, and that of my immediate next door neighbour, you have to go up a back stairway that was probably originally the servants’ staircase, I think what is now my flat and that of my neighbour’s too, must have been at one time servants’ quarters. This means that our doorways are directly opposite one another, and we are the only people who use this entrance to the building.

I moved into the flat I live in about five or six years ago now. It is a rented flat. At that time the flat opposite me was empty, but a few weeks later I met a woman a little bit older than me who was busy cleaning just inside the flat, but with the door wide open. I paused to introduce myself and talk to her. She was really friendly, and I found out it was her son who was to be my new neighbour, she was just helping him to move in. A bit later he, Oliver, turned up too. He was new to the area, so I explained where all the local shops were when the rubbish was taken out and various other little details about the practicalities of living in the property. A couple of days later he knocked on my door and called around for a chat. We found we got on really well. We have a very similar sense of humor, a shared (but slightly half-hearted) interest in running, and a mutual appreciation of good food – I could recommend the deli over the road to him as a source of lovely upmarket cheeses, olives and home-made lasagne and delicious pasta and pesto sauce too. We also both have an unfulfilled wanderlust, always plotting our next journey. He is off to Australia soon, lucky him!

Given how close we live together, our front doors face directly onto one another, we see each other incredibly rarely. We both have busy lives, working full time but different hours. At weekends I tend to be out and about, and he’ll often disappear for the weekend to stay with his girlfriend. Even so, whenever we do meet, it is always friendly, we make each other laugh. We often end up having long conversations just chatting in the hallway outside our front doors. I probably see him only once a fortnight or so, but we leave each other notes too from time to time if we need help with anything.

Oliver is a great neighbour because I know I could call on him if I needed to. We will always help each other if we can. I dug his car out of the snow for him once as he didn’t have a shovel, but he’s returned the favour in other ways, taking in parcels for me when I’m away for example. Because I live on my own it is really important to me to have a neighbour close by that I trust and like. I was really sad when he told me he was planning to emigrate. I was also really pleased for him, you have to wish someone well when they are following their dreams. I hope my new next-door neighbour is half as nice!
