Describe a good news that you have heard recently.

You should say:

  • when you heard about it
  • what it was about
  • how you heard this good news

and explain how you felt about it.

[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.]

Sample Answer:
I heard the good news in my university while attending my classes as one of the University staff from the registrar office asked me to meet the registrar immediately. Accordingly, I rushed to the registrars’ office and came to know about the news. This is really a nice candidate task topic and I am glad to answer it. I will explain everything in brief now.

The news was about a scholarship in Germany. Actually, I applied for a full free scholarship for my MA degree in journalism and got it. It was a good news for me as I had been waiting for the news for a long time. In fact, I gave up hope about the scholarship and the news arrived when I was least expecting it. So, it was a great news for me and I was delighted hearing this. The university authority was glad too and the registrar assured me to provide the necessary assistance from the university so that I could complete the degree from that German University.

I was attending a lecture about the public relation. I got admitted to this university as I did not get a response from the foreign universities. Moreover, I had completed my bachelor degree from this university. Being frustrated, I focused on the classes here and at this time it was really a great news for me. The registrar invited me to his office to inform me about that the German university has issued a letter to him asking to provide details about me. The German university also assured that it had reserved a seat for me in the next semester.

I felt really glad after hearing the news. It was a success for me during this frustrating moment. And so I felt lucky after receiving the news. My parents were happy too.
