Examiners usually have to mark many candidates during one session, so they are likely to feel bored and tired if they have to listen to the same boring answers. To avoid this situation, when answering questions, you should give your own personal examples. This will make your answers much more interesting, and your examiners will feel more comfortable.
Look how I answer these two questions of Part 3. The personal examples are underlined:
- What are some of the different types of advertising?
Well, I think companies nowadays use a lot of different methods to advertise their brands and products. About 10 or 20 years ago, there used to be only TV or radio commercials. But now, companies are increasingly placing their advertisements on the Internet, especially some social websites. I go to Facebook and YouTube all the time, and I can always see hundreds of advertisements on those sites, and to be honest, I find it a little bit annoying.
- Do you think people really buy the things they see them in an advertisement?
Some people do, I guess. Advertisements are created in a very attractive way in order to make the customers interested, so they will buy the product. For me, I do not rely entirely on advertisements. When I need something, I often ask my friends or my family who have already used the product for their opinions before deciding to buy it. I don’t want to waste my money on a bad product.
