You should say: 

  • Who this person is 
  • What kind of person he/she is 
  • What you usually do together 

And explain why you spend a lot of time with him/her 

Of course, when I was young, I lived with my parents and spent my most of my time  with them. However, when I met my cousin, Chan, at a family gathering, we became  best friends very quickly. Chan was the son of my father’s sister and my aunt and  Uncle lived in a nearby village so Chan and I did not attend the same elementary  school. We did however keep in contract by texting and talking on Wechat and I was  always excited to meet up with him at family get-togethers and parties. 

As my village was small, it didn’t have a secondary school and so we ended up  attending the same high school. We were inseparable, so much so that many people  thought we were brothers. I would bicycle five kilometers to school and we would  meet up before class and hang out talking about friends and family. 

After classes we would play football on the school playground where we became quite  skilled, competitive and athletic. One day some older students were hanging out and  watching us play. They suggested we try out for the school football team. Being  younger than the other team players, I didn’t we would make the team however the  coach did invite us to play. We both made the team and the following years were  starters. I was so proud of our red and gold jerseys and enjoyed the team spirit and  comradeship. Chan and I still hang out and chill on a regular basis and stay in touch  with many players.

Sample 2: Describe a person in the news who you want to meet

You should say: 

  • Who this person is 
  • How you know about him/her 
  • What he/she is like 

And explain why you want to meet him/her 

I would be most interested in meeting Leonardo Dicaprio who is not only a famous  actor but is an outspoken environmentalist. I am a Hollywood movie fan and have  watched all his movies. He has won many awards including Academy and the Golden  Globes as lead actor in many successful movies including Titanic, the Aviator and  Blood Diamonds. 

Dicaprio is also identified as one of the most active celebrities in the climate change  movement and has established a foundation promoting environmental awareness. He  has been an active supporter of numerous environmental organizations and sat on the  board of the World Wildlife Fund, , and THE International Fund for Animal Welfare.  He has also met with world leaders including president Clinton and Pope Frances.  Although many have been critical for his environmental impact of his private jet and  yacht, he has electric cars and a solar powered home. 

He is newsworthy due to his high recognition, environment fund raising and opinions.  DiCaprio’s personal life is the subject of widespread media attention. He rarely gives  interviews and is reluctant to discuss his private life. I think he is a fascinating  individual and I would love to meet and discuss his movie career and his  accomplishments.

Sample 3: Describe a person who taught you something 

You should say: 

  • Who this person is 
  • What he/she is like 
  • What he/she taught you 

And explain how you felt about him/her 

I enjoyed my time in high school even though studies were difficult and we were  saddled with lots of homework. I would make my way to school and loved hanging  out with my friends before and after class. However one of the most interesting and  dynamic individual was my history teacher in high school. He was our modern  history teacher and having lived through a lot of the international and domestic  events in his lifetime he shared a lot of the stories and experiences. 

One of the main thing that has stuck in my mind was his assignment that we should  read the news every day and be prepared to discuss it in class the next morning. His  motto was “today’s news is tomorrows history”. He would listen to our descriptions  and interpretations of the news articles and then provide his take on the articles. 

This not only made history interesting but also encouraged us to keep up to date on  current affairs. Allowing everyone to participate in discussions helped boost my self confidence to speak in front of the class. I am not too stressed about public speaking  and expressing my opinions. Today I still follow his teachings and read the news every  

day and on occasion I will discuss the news with friends and colleges and exchange opinions.

Sample 4: Describe a time when you helped someone 

You should say: 

  • Why you helped 
  • How you helped 
  • Where you helped  

him/her And explain how you felt about it 

At end of my commute home a couple of months ago, I discovered the electricity was  off and as my apartment hasn’t got a backup generator, to my dismay, the elevators  were not working. I live on the ninth floor of a fourteen floor apartment and rather  than wait for the power to return, I chose to take the stairs. 

During my accent I caught up with an elderly lady who was struggling up the  stairway. She had a couple of grocery bags and I offered to help her. She smiled and  gracefully took me up on my offer. I carried the groceries in one hand while she held  onto my arm and we made our way up the stairs ever so slowly. 

It took some time to climb to the seventh floor where she lived. She was so grateful  and offered me a cold beverage, but I politely declined. I believe people should help  those less able and fortunate. I felt good being of assistance for her and I believe  karma will repay me in the future. 

As we live in the same complex, we sometimes see each other, she always gives me a  sincere smile and we sometimes talk about things that are happening in the  apartment and in the community.

Sample 5: Describe a time when someone apologized to you

You should say: 

  • When it was 
  • Who this person is 
  • Why he or she  

apologized to you And   explain how you felt  about it 

Last month I was riding my motorcycle home and I was in a rush as I was tired and  hungry. Also I had a lot of studying to do to prepare for an upcoming English test.  Wouldn’t you know it; I ran into heavy traffic and had to wait for the flow to resume. 

As I was waiting, I was hit from behind by a car that caused me to fall. I scraped my  knee and had some minor bruising but I was not seriously injured. I was sure  thankful I was wearing a helmet as especially I felt my head hit the pavement. I might  have suffered a concussion or worse. 

Before I even had a chance to pick myself up, the lady driver ran over and apologized  profusely, offering to take me to the hospital and pay for any expenses and damages.  People nearby helped me up and righted my bike. I inspected my knee which hurt but  not bleeding and since I had a first aid kit at home, I could easily bandage it. I accepted  her apology as she was sincerely concerned and apologetic. 

On reflection I could have asked for restitution of my pains and minor scratches on  the motorbike, but accidents do happen and thankfully no one injured badly.

Sample 6: Describe a piece of important news you got by text message or  email 

You should say: 

  • What it was 
  • When you got it 
  • Who you got it from 

And explain how you felt about it 

With today’s technology we get inundated with countless news stories, texts,  advertising and spam. I usually wait until I have lots of spare time on my hands to  weed through the messages as I prefer to reply through my computer rather than  my smartphone. 

A couple of months ago, however, I had a nagging feeling that some communication  was wanting my attention so I went online during my coffee break to check my  messages. 

While scrolling through the list of senders and subjects that I would reply to that  night, there was one email that stood out as it was from a friend that I had not seen  for a long time. It was a short message that said he would be in my neck of the woods  that day and we should meet up. 

Our past communications have mainly been casual birthday and holiday wishes so I  was excited to catch up with him. I emailed back to him and invited him to meet at a  restaurant that evening. 

Our meeting was great as we had a terrific meal and exchanged stories and  adventures. The importance of this communication is I learned about many past  acquaintances and vowed to do as my friend had done, contact some of the past  friends that I had not communicated with recently.

Sample 7: Describe a team that you were a member of 

You should say: 

  • What the team was 
  • Why you joined it 
  • What you did in it 

And explain how you felt about being a member 

I met my cousin, Chan, at a family gathering and we became best friends very quickly.  Chan was the son of my father’s sister and my aunt and uncle lived in a nearby village  so Chan and I did not attend the same elementary school. We did however keep in  contract by texting and talking on Wechat. As my village was small, it didn’t have a  secondary school and so we ended up attending the same high school. We were  inseparable, so much so that many people thought we were brothers. After class we  would play football on the school playground where we became quite skilled,  competitive and athletic. One day some older students were hanging out and watching  us play. They suggested we try out for the school football team. Being younger than  the other team players, we didn’t think the coach would invite us to play. However, we  both made the team and worked very hard to improve and skill and score as often as  possible. The following year we were starters. It was a challenge but we were  successful in scoring and helping our team. I was so proud of our red and gold jerseys  and enjoyed the team spirit and comradeship. Chan and are still good friends and hang  out and chill on a regular basis. We also stay in touch with many of the players from  our football club.

Sample 8:Describe an important journey that was delayed 

You should say: 

  • What the purpose of the journey was 
  • Why it was important 
  • How it was delayed 

And explain how you felt about it 

Last year was very excited to return to my village from Beijing during Chinese New  Year in reunite with my family and hopefully meet and hang out with a few of my  friends from high school and University. Knowing that traveling at that time of the  year especially during that event can be very busy on the transportation system. I  booked my ticket to leave early and arrive as early as I could in my village. 

Everything went smoothly although the train was very crowded during the first leg of  my trip. When transferring to the bus however things changed. I bus I was scheduled  to take had been delayed and would be at least two hours late. Since I started my trip  early, I still had plenty of time and wasn’t worried that I would get home late. 

The bus finally arrived, three hours behind schedule, was loaded up and I continued  on my trip. Difficulties compounded when an hour into our journey the bus skidded  off the road. Although there was some panic, fortunately there were no injuries and  we had to wait for the bus to be pull back onto the road. With no apparent damage,  

we continue our way, finally reaching my stop without any other incidences. 

As I waited for My Dad to pick me up at the bus station I was thankful and relieved  that I had arrived safely. In the village many people had arrived already and some  were in transit so I missed very little of the celebrations.

Sample 9: Describe an occasion when you could not use your mobile phone

You should say: 

  • When it was 
  • Where it was 
  • Why you could not use your  

mobile phone And explain how you felt about it 

A few months ago, I don’t know how, but i lost my smart phone. I was on the subway and  after I disembarked I discovered it was gone. I didn’t know if I was the victim of a  pickpocket or it had just slipped out of my pocket. Early the next morning I went to the  transit station to see if it had been turn in, but it had not. Deciding on a replacement  phone to buy was difficult as there were new specifications and features available. I read  reviews and listened to advice from friends and finally decided on the make and model I  wanted. Fortunately the desired phone was coming on sale and I made my decision to  purchase the latest Samsung model from the Samsung retailer at my local shopping center. 

Now I don’t know about you, but I rely on my mobile a lot to keep up to date on the  news, stay in touch with friends and receive my emails and texts. Also I find it handy  to search for information online an occasionally play some games. 

I felt isolated and alone without my phone and disappointed that I would have to  spend considerable funds on a new phone. 

The day of the sale I rushed down to the Samsung store, made my purchase and  returned home. Fortunately my pictures, videos and contacts were saved to the  cloud online but it took some time to reinstall the applications I use.

Sample 1: Describe an occasion when the weather prevented a planned  activity 

You should say: 

  • When it was 
  • Why it prevented your activity 
  • What you did instead 

And explain how you felt about it 

It was Friday afternoon and the weather forecast for the weekend looked promising. I  decided a visit with my parents in the village would be my plan for the weekend as I  had not seen them for a long time. I phoned my Mom an invited myself over to spend  the weekend. I also mentioned that I would invite my cousin for a visit so we could  catch up and hangout. 

However the weather can be unpredictable and during my commute home, the skies  opened up and torrential rain started. I got soaked just on the travel home so I called  my mom to explain that I would have to make it another time. She agreed as it was  raining heavily there too and understood my postponement. 

I live in a large apartment complex and casually know a few people living there. I  thought it would be a good idea to invite some people over to listen to some music  and socialize. After a few calls, four of my neighbors agreed to come over at 7 O’clock. 

As is traditional in China they brought some food and drink to share. We ate and  drank while sharing some stories and it turned out to be a very enjoyable evening.

Sample 10: Describe a change that could improve your local area

You should say: 

  • What it is 
  • How the change can be made 
  • What problems it might bring 

And explain how you feel the area will benefit 

I believe the number one issue that needs addressing in China is pollution. Even back  in my village, we get poor air from the large cities and air pollution in the cities is  worse. 

Pollution has increased due to industrialization as economic growth seems to be the  priority over the environment. It has been reported that “hundreds of thousands of  premature deaths and incidents of serious respiratory illness have been caused by  exposure to industrial air pollution”. 

Also seriously contaminated by industrial discharges, has made many of China’s  waterways unfit for direct human use. 

Other symptoms of pollution include millions without safe and clean drinking water  and large sections of oceans are without marine life. 

The government needs to enforce stricter regulations with severe penalties on  polluters. As individuals our carbon footprint can be reduced, for example by driving  less, recycling more and reducing plastic use. 

On a positive note, China recognizes the problems and is taking steps to make  improvements by reducing fossil fuel consumption with alternate energy  sources including wind and solar power.

Sample 11: Describe a time when you were excited 

You should say: 

  • When it was 
  • Where you were 
  • Who you were with 

And explain why you were excited 

One of the most exciting and memorable occasions was my graduation from university.  I was celebrating the end of my student life with classmates, friends and family. 

In China, as you may know, education matters a lot. It is a very stressful and labor intensive experience and parents are anxious to see their child certified with high  honors and embark on their career. As such, getting your diploma is quite a big deal  in China, both for parents and graduates. 

While I attended university, I lived in the dormitory but this day I stayed with my  parents who lived in the suburbs. I was comfortable to be at their home and away  from the dorm and especially away from the hustle and bustle of the city. I was looking  forward to all the activities planned for me on this special day. 

We drove to the University for the Graduation Ceremony and speeches. The  auditorium was full with the graduates up front and the friends and family sitting  towards the back. The commencement speech was delivered by the Dean which was  long but very inspiring. 

Next up was dinner at a buffet restaurant where there was a huge variety of  dishes and desserts. I stuffed myself on my favorite foods. 

I went back to my dormitory to change into casual clothes, before going to the after  grad party. At the party we talked about our futures. Some graduates had job  prospects and some were returning to school to further their education. All in all it  was an exciting but very exhausting day.

Sample 12: Describe a crowded place you went to 

You should say: 

  • Where you went 
  • Who you went there with 
  • Why you went there 

And explain how you felt about this place 

Back in November I wanted to attend the 70th anniversary of the Chinese Republic. It  promised to be a spectacular display of military, culture and celebration events. I was  especially looking forward to the fireworks that would likely surpass the display at the  winter Olympics. I managed to book transportation to Beijing and accommodation  online and started my journey early in the morning. The train into Beijing was filled to  capacity. It was so crowded that many had to stand for the trip. 

Once I arrived in the capital, I found my hotel and checked in. After freshening up, I  headed to the ceremonies. The public transportation was as crowded as the train  with standing room only. It seems everyone was going to the same destination. 

The celebrations were spectacular and I enjoyed the military display but more so the  cultural presentations. It was standing room only as the fireworks thundered in the  sky and the fireworks were breathtaking. During trip back to my hotel I noticed the  bus and trains had long waiting lines and were filled to capacity and they move the  crowd away from the celebrations. At the hotel, I enjoyed a quiet meal in the hotel  restaurant before retiring for the night. The trip was very worthwhile and  entertaining and I enjoyed myself immensely.

Sample 13: Describe a difficult challenge you met 

You should say: 

  • What the challenge was 
  • When you met it 
  • How you responded to it 

And explain why you think it was difficult 

A few months ago I updated my smart phone. Deciding which phone to buy was  difficult as there were specifications and features I did not understand. I read reviews  and listened to the advice from friends and finally decided on the make and model I  wanted. Fortunately the desired phone was coming on sale and I made my decision to  purchase the latest Samsung model from the Samsung retailer at my local shopping  center. 

One of the main features I wanted was improved photos and videos capabilities and  my new phone had better optics. I was amazed at the better quality and sharpness.  Previously I would share the occasional picture and videos with friends and family,  but now with better quality results I wanted to be more creative with my posts. 

Therefore I took on the challenge of exploring audio and video editing software  and making more interesting presentation. I downloaded and tried many free  software programs but I didn’t get the results I wanted. 

Eventually settled on a package that was not too expensive, would not over burden  my computer and gave good results. The program provides the usual clip, cut and  paste features and also has numerous text features, transitions, overlays and  elements that can be added to my presentations. 

Although perhaps not important in the overall video experiences on the internet, it is  important for me as I have a learning challenge and providing better videos for my  friends.

Sample 14: Describe a new skill you learned recently that you think is  important 

You should say: 

  • What it is 
  • How difficult it was to learn 
  • How you learned it 

And explain why you think it is  

important [same as the answer to  

the previous question]

Sample 15: Describe a uniform (in a school or company) you have worn

You should say: 

  • Why you wore the uniform 
  • What it looked like 
  • Who bought it for you 

And explain how you felt about wearing it 

Uniforms are a common part of the schools in China. Almost all secondary schools as  well as some elementary schools require students to wear uniforms. They are  practical, wear-resistant and dirt-proof. 

Most importantly, a uniform means students don’t have to worry about peer pressure  when it comesto their clothes and fashion. When everyone is dressed the same,  worrying about what you look like isn’t so important. Also getting ready for school you  don’t have to be concerned about what to wear. 

Online shopping was not popular when I was younger so my mother and I went to the  recommended store to purchase my uniforms for high school. It consisted of a white  shirt with a light blue collar with light blue trousers to match. We also bought a  matching sweater for cooler days. We returned to the store in late winter to buy a  similar set of uniforms of lighter material and shorts for the warmer spring and  summer. 

I was proud of my school uniform as it represented my school which had a good  reputation for academics and had a good sporting record. It also let us recognize  fellow student on the way to and from school and we would socialize on the way.
