[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.]


Model Answer 1:
Leadership is the name of a special quality that helps to get specific tasks done in an efficient manner. Leaders have some extraordinary qualities to accomplish the tasks and motivate others.

My school friend George Tonny owns some special qualities which are more prevalent among the leaders, especially the great leaders. He is only 19 but has a special sense to distinguish the right from the wrong. He never lies with people and helps them generously. I have never seen him disappointing people and other classmates including me as well. I have always received help from him whenever I wanted and he never asked to get the favours back in return. He is sincere as well in all of his activities and can get any job done perfectly by engaging others by the shortest possible time.

When I was admitted to my elementary school, met George Tonny and it seems that our friendship has become a permanent one. We did not quarrel over any issues for a single moment. Tonny favoured me in different ways and during the physics exam, he is a great help for me. He makes the lessons easier for me so that I could answer the questions well. Moreover, I tried to return the favours but he directly denied accepting those. He is sincere, always keeps his promises, never behaves rudely and his judgmental ability is extraordinary. All these qualities actually belong to great leaders and he might be so someday.

Most of my classmates are friends always admire Tonny for his good nature and leader-like skills. They do not even shout before him to show their respect. Almost all of the classmates have been benefitted by Tonny and thus they are compassionate for him. Tonny is privileged everywhere in the school and out of the school. But interestingly when I try to talk or try any interaction with the others, I do not get that as many positive response as Tonny receives. However, I am not jealous of him.

Morning shows the day. Tonny owns the qualities of a good leader and it is proven from his early age. Someone of only 19 cannot behave so gently and engage people with his personality to accomplish any task until he has something ordinary inside. All the other students and mates of the class abide by him and follow his orders (definitely legal orders). He is able to charm people with his speech and behaves which is not possible for all the other teenagers of our age. Leadership requires some qualities like sincerity, integrity, honesty, punctuality, generosity, eloquence etc. and Tonny owns every one of them. Therefore, I believe that Tonny will be a good leader in future is he keeps exercising the qualities.



Sample Answer 2:
There is a saying that leaders are born not created. I think the saying is true in some cases. One of my friends, Akiki Murami appears so. He is still a young boy but demonstrates all the qualities of a leader, in fact, a great leader. Thank you for asking such a pretty question and I am getting straight about him now.

I am a student of the eleventh grade in a local college of Tokyo and Akiki Murami is one of my good friends. He lives with his family near the place I live in. He is smart and intelligent. The most appealing feature of this boy is that he loves to help people in need. Besides, he is also polite and loves to meet new people but takes care of the old ones as well. Considering all the aspects, it appears that he would be a very good leader someday.

I met him first in my school. In fact, we had our schooling at the same institution. He also lived in the same locality where I lived with my parents. His father is in government service while his mother is a housewife. I have a very intimate relationship with him and his family. He also has two siblings and he is the older among them. The meeting with him was interesting and still, I can remember the day when I had a quarrel with him over taking a seat in the class. Actually, it was my fault – I pushed aside his bag which was placed on the table to take my seat. I tried to replace the bag but he saw that and came to talk about the issue. I started quarrelling. I feel ashamed that I lied to him on that day to take the front row seat. Later, we resolved the issue and both took the seat at the same table. It was the introductory meeting with him.

Yes, people have a different behave with him. In fact, they are well aware of his qualities. Though he loves to help people and other students of his class, he is reluctant to provide help to those who want to exploit his simplicity. He helps everyone but when he comes to know abusing his simplicity, he turns rude to them. He tries to avoid them and never allows them to appeal him for any help. I like this specific feature very much. On the other sides, when he meets with people, he loves to make them feel free to him. No matter if you are an older or younger than him. He talks with a sweet smile on his face which attracts everyone. When he becomes angry, he does not shout with people rather lets them know smilingly that he would be of no use to them anymore. Thereby, the behaves of people is a bit different with him.

Akiki Murami could be a good leader and there are many signs of it. A good leader is always worried about the people. The similar thing is found in him. He is always seeking chances to help people in their distress and he helps them selflessly. So, he is a preferable character among his surroundings. Besides, he is also a pride of our locality and has a very good relationship with a notable number of people at this early. He knows how to deal with critical situations by not hurting anyone’s interest. In fact, he applies his ready wits to get rid of the troubles. Therefore, I think he can be a good leader in future.

Model Answer 1: Transportation is the most important mode of communication and if the roads are not well constructed, the entire transportation process gets spoiled and development process is hampered.

The main highway of our locality was built around 15 to 20 years ago and it has connected the locality with the main city which is about 20 kilometres away from the countryside we are living in. But now it is almost ruined and there are ditches across the road that has made the road bumpy. When it rains, the rain waters clog on the centre of the road and make it muddy.

Model Answer 1: A journey is always pleasant to me. It not only gives us entertainment, it is helpful to teach over different unknown issues as well.
