leaves what's the difference between

friends and neighbors I'm not quite sure

important factor in building a good

relationship

that personal brand can be built from

the inside rather than the outside

however what you wear also plays an

important role in saying who you are

places what do you like the most in the

advertisement

private transport public transport is

much cheaper do you think buses should

replace other means of transport sure in

the future buses should be used widely

by commuters what does the government do

to encourage people to use public

transport it's a good idea to make

do it's a good way to keep in touch what

was your favorite phone conversation it

was when I talked to my interviewer he

did give me the good news that I got the

job when did you have the conversation I

don't remember exactly but it's been two

years so far I guess who did you talk to

where I'm working as a cashier what did

you talk about he offered me the

position and congratulated me why did

you find the conversation interesting

actually it was more exciting than

interesting I was waiting for it for so

long and finally he did make it come

true

do you prefer talking directly or

talking on the phone personally talking

directly is much better to me since it's

more lively and authentic who do you

usually talk to on the phone

I talked to my mom almost every day I

will be missing the conversation every

evening with mom if one day she stops

calling me what are the differences

between talking directly and phoning

well talking directly seems more

exciting since you can see facial

expressions and eye contact while

talking on the phone you can only listen

to the voice

I love traveling and talking to the

local people in their mother tongue what

Spanish is the second popular language

spoken here according to the statistic

how often do you use that language quite

a lot

I see Spanish people every day in the

restaurant bank or supermarket how long

have you been learning that language

in advanced class now why do you choose

to learn that language I'm interested in

Spanish culture and I'd like to use

language as a tool to discover Spanish

cultural values who is your teacher an

old Spanish teacher she can also speak

second language

business some learn to travel some just

learned for fun

admire well I really admire mr. Tom who

is an extremely creative math teacher

why do you admire him for me math is

quite boring because I have to work with

long numbers I used to hate Matt so much

before I had lessons with mr. Tom he has

thousands of ways to teach that boring

subject which inspires me a lot how did

he become so creative I'm not quite sure

but I think that's his inborn talent do

people you know admire him too of course

all my classmates just love and respect

him for his creative teaching what is he

like he has a good sense of humor he

always tells jokes and we just can't

help laughing do you think creativity

qualities can be trained how is

creativity important in study or work it

generates energy and makes things more

inspiring without creativity work and

study are just dull and tiring

measles when I was 18 how did you have

that health problem I thought I'd catch

measles from someone when they cough or

sneeze was that serious

not really but it was unpleasant I

recovered after ten days staying at home

what were some symptoms of that health

problem I had a cold and fever with a

cough a runny nose the small grayish

white spots appeared on my body - did

you take any medical treatment

no I didn't the situation wasn't serious

enough to be sent to the hospital then

how could you recover from it well let

me see

I drank a lot of water avoided the

direct sunlight and I had to stay off

school for 10 days what difficulties did

you face because of that problem I

couldn't go out for a few days which was

boring I'm not allowed to play outside

and I felt so bad about it what do

people do to prevent that health problem

by having measles vaccine is that health

problem common in your country not

really due to the effectiveness of

vaccination

are you a tech and gadget lover yes I am

I love shopping for new gadgets what is

an important technological advancement

you know that's the emergence of online

payment systems like credit cards or

PayPal thanks to the development of the

Internet I think what do you use it for

I use these services to do shopping

online now I can book flight tickets in

advance without the need to go to the

agency how long have you been using it

around three years does it make your

life easier

you use it at least once a week what are

other technological advancements you

know there are many electricity

smartphone the internet robot and so on

what is a famous landmark in your

hometown

well I can't hide my pride to talk about

the Statue of Liberty when was it built

I read on newspapers that it was

constructed in 1886

where is it it's located on Liberty

Island in New York Harbor what does it

look like that's a woman known as the

Roman goddess bearing a torch and a

broken chain lies at her feet what was

it made of the main material was copper

who was the architect mr. Gustave Eiffel

who also designed the Tower of Eiffel

what is special about it

actually it was gifted to my country the

USA from the people of France does it

symbolize something the statue is a

symbol of freedom we all love it and are

so proud to share with international

friends about it does it attract many

tourists to come yep it attracts 4

million visitors each year according to

the statistic

do you love handcraft items yeah my

accessories are all handmade

what handcraft item do you like well

I've got many items but I really fall in

love with my bamboo handbag where did

you buy it I bought it in a trip to the

countryside people make hand crafts from

bamboo there why do you like it because

it's unique I travel quite a lot but can

hardly find a similar one what is it

made of

it's made of 100% bamboo what does it

look like being made of traditional

material it looks trendy though my

handcraft bag has a4 paper size which is

large enough to carry a bunch of stuff

make up things a wallet and tissues how

is it made luckily I had a chance to see

how it is made people spent the whole

day knitting hundreds of small bamboo

fibers together to make one bag is it

easy to make nope I'm not really

skillful and patient so handcraft seems

super hard for me what is special about

it the material itself is what makes it

special it's eco-friendly as well does

it remind you of something

yep it reminds me of the peaceful and

quiet atmosphere at the countryside

where I visited

is plastic surgery popular in your

country not really people in my country

are not so interested in plastic surgery

what do you think about people having

plastic surgery it's hard to say as long

as they find happiness in what they're

doing it's fine with me why do you think

people do it they want to gain a better

look I believe that's understandable is

plastic surgery bad it's bad for health

in the long run does it do harm to your

health sure there are several unhealthy

substances in the medical treatments

which may be harmful to your body do you

think changing your look is a good thing

yes I can't deny that changing for a

better appearance is what people should

do but don't abuse plastic surgery or

you will face serious health problems

later on do you think the development of

plastic surgery is a positive or

negative trend it's more a positive

trend I guess thanks to plastic surgery

people who think they don't look good

can now make themselves more attractive

do you care more about your outlook or

inner soul as for me the inner soul does

matter more although outside appearance

is important too what is the part of

your face that you wish to change

although I have some imperfect parts I

have no wish to change anything I love

the natural appearance my parents gave

me

what success did you achieve I don't

know if it matters to someone or not but

passing the entrance exam to university

was a huge success for me when did you

get that success I got it six years ago

it's been two years since I left

University was there anyone who

supported you my family supported me a

lot

my mom prepared good meals for me while

my dad helped me with hard math problems

was it hard to get that success it was

hard for me since I wasn't good at

academic subjects at all what were some

difficulties in achieving success the

period before the exam was quite

stressful I was so obsessed with it that

I had a serious headache how did you get

it I stuck to books day and night

I just stopped reading and writing when

I felt on you thoroughly about the

matters how did you feel when you were

successful I was over the moon then I

was looking forward to campus life how

did your life change after that success

I had a chance to learn my favorite

major at my desired University and then

got a high-paying job in an active

working environment what is your key to

success I don't particularly have any

key to success just work hard and try

your best

everything good will come to you
