What is your full name?

My family name is Matheson and my given name is David Thomas, please call me Tom.

May I see your identification?

Here’s my passport, I used it to register for this exam, please take a look.

What do you like to do when the weather is nice?

On days when the weather is fair, I like to spend time outside playing sports or going to an open-air market. (I don’t say “for example) Last Saturday was a really nice warm sunny day, and I went shopping at my local farmer’s market for some fresh produce.

(It’s not a good idea to say ‘for example’ because the examiner will think that you will ramble on. Instead, when you give a clear example, it is intrinsic to the fact you are giving an example)

How about when the weather is bad?

Well, when the weather is gloomy, if it’s raining cats and dogs or if it’s too hot or too cold for me to feel comfortable, I stay indoors and either play some games or study. Yesterday, the temperature was hovering around 40 plus, so I turned on the AC and played some video games.

If you are stressed, what do you do?

Whenever I feel stressed out, I like to communicate my problems with others. I feel that this not only helps me to be at ease with myself but also, oftentimes, I get good advice to deal with whatever is making me strung out. I was upset at losing my watch the other day, and it really helped me to tell a few of my friends about my disappointment.
