Part 2 - Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card


Describe a friend with whom you like to spend your time.

You should say:

  • when and how you two met
  • how often you see this friend
  • what kind of personality your friend has

and say why you like spending time with this friend.

[ You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you’re going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]

Sample Answer:
I met with Irene at the university. She sat beside me on the very first day of the class in our new semester. The classes began in the last month and I met her first then. She was a transferred student from China and she is a very nice young lady and loves to socialize with others. As part of her socialisation, I was introduced to her. She talks a bit more and rarely allows her surrounding people to talk when she is in the flow! However, this is a nice cue card task for me. And I am glad about the question. Here is the remaining answer of this candidate task.

I meet with Irene almost every day. In this short span of time, she has become one of my closest friends for her nature. In fact, I meet her even on the weekends as she is my neighbour as well. When we meet, we discuss numerous issues together. The most important thing about meeting her is that I can know about many things from her. And she loves to share her knowledge and experience with everyone, and particularly with me as I am a good listener.  

To be frank, Irene has a very strong personality. She is a loyal and cheerful girl and though she talks much about any of the issues, everyone loves her too much as none of her speeches is offensive. She also has a strong mentality to help and support others in their needs. I am really proud of her.

I love to spend time with this person. And there are some interesting reasons. Whenever I seek any help to her, she never refuses and even if I ask something at the midnight, she replies me with necessary information. Moreover, Irene has some similarities with me. Both of us love reading books and share books with each other.


Part 3 - Two-way Discussion

Q.  Do you have many friends? Why? Why not?
A. Yes, I do have many friends. Most of them are from college and the university I am currently studying. It is important to have many friends in our university level as it enhances our knowledge and experience about different cultures and customs. Moreover, they are helpful for a better academic and university life. 

Q.  How much people in your country value friendship?
Q.  It is often said that a good friend is
like a family member. Do you agree? Why/why not?
Q.  What are the differences between real life friends and online friends?
Q.  Can people from different cultures and countries become good friends? Why/why not?
Q.  Do you think a female's expectation for a friend is different than that of a male? How?
