IELTS Speaking Interview



What is your full name?

My full name is Hardasa Singh.

How may I address you?

You may address me as Hardasa.

Who gave you your name? / What’s the origin of your name?

My name is named after a famous figure who my parents really admire and they really hope that I can turn out to be exactly like her in the future. So yeah, I guess both of them agreed upon the name.

Does your name have any special meaning?

Most Indian names do, I suppose, and mine is not an exception. My name can be interpreted as a river in autumn. In my country, anything related to autumn is considered beautiful and calm, since this season is the most comfortable one out of the four. So, I assume my parents did have somewhat an expectation when they named me that.

Do you think your name is special?

Actually, the name [……] is fairly common in my country. You would be pretty surprised at how many girls here are named [….]. But, in a sense, this name is special to me because my parents gave it to me and it will stay with me for my whole life.

Do you like your name?

Definitely yes! It’s a simple, yet meaningful name to me. Say if you ask me whether I would like to change my name into another one, my answer would be a big no.

What do your friends call you?

It really depends. Most of my close friends prefer to call me by my nickname, “Pup”. Meanwhile, others just use my first name.

Did your family have a certain (nick) name that they called you when you were a child?

When I was born, I had been crying for more than 2 hours. Therefore, my parents decided to call me Crocodile, which turned out to be my nickname afterwards. It was such a funny name which still makes me embarrassed when my parents call my nickname in front of my friends.

How did your parents choose your name?

My parents named me after a famous freedom fighter in my country who is universally admired today. I hope I can achieve great things like she did.

Although, nowadays it is a popular trend to say that I am very busy. But, if we observe a little closely, we will find that most of us waste our time in such an unconscious manner that we do not even stay aware of it. I also engage in this activity of net and social media browsing, which, I came to realize lately, is a sheer waste of time.

Whenever I have a break at work or whenever I am at home, I instantly start browsing on my phone. Reading and watching different posts, messages, blogs and other such useless gossips turned into adrenalin pumpers and eventually, the addiction. These quivers offered by the internet start offering a vicarious entertainment and one gets hooked to them. I started this habit only a year ago, when I bought my new smartphone. Feature phone, I used to have earlier, had no such space for internet windows.

I started with opening an account on Facebook, which is a very common cult among netizens. It was after that, that I started receiving so many comments, posts, videos and what not on my account. Once I started diving in them, I kept on pushing deeper and deeper. Some are funny to watch while others have aphrodisiac nature. Some criticise the PM while others support the government. Some comments make you feel hero while others bring embarrassment. It is this colourful play of different emotions and temperaments which becomes an inducement for any user and similarly for me.

For the first few months, after I bought the smartphone, I could not even realize the long durations at a stretch, just floating in those clouds and networks. It was lately only, when I started feeling severe backache and detected a rise in my lens number. I had literally punished my health, for the sake of the activity of sitting with that stupid device, in any bad posture. Then I realized, that there is nothing creative or productive, which is drawn out of this useless activity which not only consumes time but health as well.

Why do people engage in activities other than work?

Actually, the urgency in life at all times can drive a person crazy. Therefore, one takes a break in work as well as in thought process. Otherwise, one would become total mechanical with no time for amusing and creative things. Therefore, to spend some time for personal rejuvenation, people engage in activities other than work.

How does an activity become a time wasting activity?

Initially, no activity can be termed as time wasting activity. Even listening to a joke will be called as an amusement and entertainment, necessary for living beings. But when we indulge in an activity for a longer duration, then it becomes a matter of concern to evaluate the productivity and utility of that activity, otherwise it becomes an atrophy. For instance, drinking wine occasionally can be an entertainment but overindulgence in drinking will change its character from amusement to devastation.

What should the parents do, to avoid children getting over engaged in video games?

First of all, children, even till the graduation level should not be handed the mobile phones. They can learn their apt soft skills on desktop or personal computer placed at a common place for everyone. Secondly, even if they use the mobile phones of parents for some time, they should be duly observed and should not be allowed for overtime. Moreover, parents should educate their children about uses and drawbacks of using a mobile phone at an early age. Rather, they should encourage them to participate in outdoor games, instead.

How can people spend their time creatively?

Books are considered to be the beat friends in free time. Reading good books not only provides information on so many streams, but it also paves the way for generation of new ideas after accumulation of knowledge. Apart from this, one can be engaged in outdoor games and adventures. This will help in maintaining good health and enthusiastic spirits.
