Describe a situation where you had to wait for something special to happen.

You should say:

  • what it was
  • what did you do during that time
  • what eventually happened

and explain what happened afterwards.

[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:
It was the eve of Christmas last year and I had to wait to receive my gift from my parents. I will always remember that night. In fact, I received one of the most important gifts of my life on that date. My parents wanted to make me happy and so, they gave me a very special gift marking Christmas. This is a pretty nice cue card for me, and I am happy with this.

The moments were filled with anxiety. I tried to focus on several things but failed. At first, I took a book right after supper. But I failed to focus on the book. Then I moved to play some computer games, and it was a failure as well. Later, I tried to concentrate on social websites and it turned in a fruitless effort too. In fact, I was too much excited and could not concentrate on anything at all. The moments turned longer and I could not enjoy the things I was doing.

Actually, my younger brother told me that I will receive something special from parents and thus I became excited. But I could not share my emotions with the other people fearing if I do not get the gift. Gradually, my dad came to me and said that he wanted to tell me something. He was serious and I was afraid. But suddenly he smiled and gave the gift to me.

I was too happy after receiving the package. The gifts were – a leather bag, a pair of sunglasses, a perfume from my preferred brand and a nicely decorated dress. Everything was packed in a single package. I jumped out with joy after unveiling the gifts and thanked them a lot for the gifts. I am using the products and grateful indeed to my parents.
