Describe an irritating person you know about.

You should say:
  • who is he/she
  • how you know him/ her
  • what he/ she does
and say why you think he/she is an irritating person.  

[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:
I work at a multinational computer hardware manufacturing company in Malaysia. Mr Andrew Peterson is my colleague and he appears the most irritating person to me for some reasons. In fact, I have never met a person like him before.

Mr Peterson is a man of less wisdom. He talks much and interferes with almost everything that he listens regardless of importance to him. Many of my colleagues are also irritated by him. As an individual, he is good but for his nosiness, he is disliked by everyone like me. But nobody can protest against him because he is also the manager of the company where we are working. To exercise his power and intelligence (!) he always is in search of seeking the faults of others and wants to revise the faults. Besides, he always interferes even with the personal matters of the employees which are extremely intolerable for us.

I met him first in the office. He was on the interview board. In fact, it was my bad luck to meet a person like him. Before joining this hardware manufacturing company, I used to work at another company that dealt with some specific parts of the computer. I had some problems with the office schedule. They asked me to join at the roaster duty. But it was not possible for me and I politely informed them about my inability to continue anymore with the company. So, I started seeking jobs, especially a suitable one for me. It was my regular task to seek the job until I get this one. I submitted my CV and they asked me for a formal interview. I attended accordingly and got selected for the post after a thorough interviewing process. Mr Peterson was the chair of the interview committee. I am grateful to him for selecting me but I had to prove my worth against the post.

He is the manager of the manufacturing company in Malaysia. In fact, he is the in-charge of the company that is headquartered in Canada. I admit that he is a competent employee to care for everything but his nosiness is the most irritating issue for the majority of the employee. There are some staffs who love to be with him and care for him for their own benefits, but I am unable to be his shadow. I am also unable to nod at every of his statement and activities. In fact, he tries to dominate everyone at the office. Mr Peterson wants to know each and everything about the office. And most of the employees think this is not fair for him. He is responsible for some specific tasks. He is to care for the weekly and monthly production and sales issues. Besides, he is also responsible for taking care of the production house lest the production is up to the mark in line with the demands of the market and more other duties.

But despite his responsibilities, he tries to do something more. It proves his stupidity. For instance, if someone has any family issue, he tries to interfere there and provide a solution regardless of necessity. As a result, he has turned into an irritating character in the office. Nobody likes him anymore and only maintains a minimal relationship with him. He could have been an interesting person if he had avoided such snoopiness. He always tries to insult the employees- both in direct and indirect manners. Being his subordinate, nobody is able to protest fearing the ending of their jobs. The similar scenario is true for me. I am talking about him here but it is not possible for me to advise him to change his attitude. So, he will remain an irritating person to me until I quit the job.

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.
